Re: Hussein al-Haji Simmons

My buddy Dorsey Levin with the e-mail point of the day (and since my e-mail is either broken or everyone's working real hard today, this had very little competition...regardless, great point):

"So I finally figured out this afternoon why I dislike Bill Simmons so much and find his opinion regarding all things baseball useless at best. Reading his articles is like reading a Palestinian's take on events in the Middle East."

I generally find Simmons' fanboy Sawx articles to be pretty entertaining in a weird way. I think, keeping with the Middle East analogy, that it's almost the equivalent of a member bin Laden's network reading CNN.com for news on the American war perspective. I like hearing what's inside the most vocal opposition leader's head, what the other side is thinking and feeling, especially as it relates to my side. But today I gotta agree with Dorsey...this one kinda made me want to puke. Puke, that's a funny word.

But as Yankee fans, today's column should get to us, a few spots were meant to get to us. Any time a Sawx fan brings up the choke job, it's going to sting and sting badly. Regardless, or irregardless as the kids say, click here for today's Sports Guy piece.

You fucking read my mind Ace. I respect the guy too. He crossed the line today.

He's not a journalist.

Yeah, 1918, I'm with ya all the way. Although, I think even Simmons would admit he doesn't want to be considered a journalist.

i like how he calls the a-rod signing "a horrendous mistake". i hope the yanks continue to make mistakes like that for years to come. also, he lumped javy into that category, but judging him on one season is just dumb.

i like simmons. he's unbelievably hypocritical, but i still like him. although those cartoons have got to go.

You're back in town, eh Ethan?

Yeah, A-Rod may have had a down year and got called out for the slapping routine, but that was one of the best horrendous mistakes ever...

I'm a big Simmons fan for one enormous reason -- like Triple H at the turn of the century, he's just that damn good. He really is. I try to hate him sometimes, but he's really f-in' good.

Good to have you back around...now go post something so I can procrastinate.

Soup counts as a meal. Now you've had two soups and a sandwich.
