    Conversation at Wrigley Field:

    Jay Mariotti to Rick Telander: I would love to punch you.

    Telander: That would be the saddest day of your life.

    When Jay beat the crap out of his girlfriend, they were both victims.

    Mariotti trying to paint himself as the poor widdle bullying victim. So shameless that guy is. Who else suspects the coworkers that allegedly wanted to punch him had good cause?

    More fun to punch — Mariotti or Berman?

    "One of them, an older columnist who didn't like me and the fact I was on national TV, challenged me to two fist fights -- right there and then -- for no good reason. I'd just laugh at the guy and alert a press-box guard, then let the editors know they had hotheads in the ranks and that it wasn't good for morale or outside perceptions. "

    I never thought of Telander as particularly older than Mariotti, but he is -- about 10-11 years.

    Although I am sure Telander could probably still make a hot wreck out of Mariotti any time he felt like it.

    Of course Mariotti could have been referring to any number of people when he describes columnists who wanted to punch him in the face.

    Hell, I'm older than Mariotti and I'd love to punch him in the face.

    Wasn't Telander an NFL draft pick out of college? Yeah, I'd say he'd have made quick work out of ole Jay, regardless of age difference.
