    Having spent last weekend in chicago, I know Big Lead is going to get absolutely flooded with people from up there wanting to read about the feud. That's all people were talking about, moreso than the Cubs-Sox series.

    I read the title really quick, and it looked like Tea Bags Rick Telander.

    Whew, am I *glad* I was wrong.

    OK, how about this:

    Q: You’re one of the few journalists who played a sport in college

    How true is that?

    Division I, Big Three, yeah, maybe there are not too many. (But if you could sportscasters there are a decent few).

    But, day-um, even *I* wrestled in college. About 120 pounds ago.

    I just don't understand the 'get' angle here. I don't know too many sportswriters who turn down 'interviews' especially when those interviews consist of emailed questions that omit tough questions because 'what's the point of asking if you already know the answer?'

    Just one.
    The other guys were all 20- and 30-somethings, two of whom work for the Sox.

    In part, though, I will ammend my statement. There was a fair amount of talk about "Louisville Chugger."

    TBL, or the dude that writes most of it, ain't Bill Shakespeare, but his point is valid even if he writes it obtusely. Not many writers have big-time, D-I, or pro credentials, which is, of course, apropos of nothing. It doesn't really give anyone the ability to write better, faster or cleaner.

    But aside from Telander (and has anyone ever read his book on trying to make the Chiefs?) who else is there, aside from the collection of D-3 rasslers and cross country runners?

    David Haugh was a DB for Ball State, I think. John Ed Bradley at LSU...
