    I no longer read Rick Reilly. If this is all he can get at the Super Bowl, then ESPN is paying way too much.

    Probably wrapped up in his hotel room watching NBA every night he should have been filing stories.

    I assume this is the only thing he filed from the Super Bowl?

    To be fair, Reilly did a pretty fair column on Kaepernick being adopted a week earlier, intertwining his own experiences with an adopted child into the story to bring some real and personal perspective to it. It wasn't epic but it was a decent read.

    Unfortunately, a week later, all he had was shit.

    My problem with Reilly these days is that he'll write a column once every 4-6 weeks that's brilliant, but it's surrounded by so much other crap that he writes that you miss it.

    That is a good story by Reilly. I will give him the benefit of the doubt in the fact that he works for ESPN. When you work for them it is different.

    Misspelled Katharine McPhee. But then, so does almost everybody.

    Wait, was he calling Baltimore "paradise," or was he calling the 504 (New Orleans) paradise?

    Reed is from New Orleans, so I'm guessing the latter.

    No, the Kapaernick column was garbage as well.

    That was how I read it too.
