It won’t take long for all three of you readers out there (my Father, and the other two guys that hope to one day write for the site who I still haven’t figured out how to let log in) to figure out that I’m a huge Deadspin fan. One of my main problems with blogs (and, by default, writing a blog myself) is that it’s proved pretty much impossible for anyone else to do it better than them. In typical Deadspin fashion, they wrote an absolutely awesome piece today on the Rise of Bill Simmons, unofficially America’s first sports blogger. It’s well worth the 3 1/2 minutes it will take you to read.
In other news, here’s a good piece that’s a few days old about how Rick Pitino and John Calipari hate each other with the intensity of a thousand suns. Genuine dislike between coaches always makes for a more interesting game, if you ask me.
