Credibility? No. Creepiness? Yes.
The next time you turn on ESPN and Jay Mariotti's smug, greasy face is on the screen, remember that he is the same man who wrote a column one month ago wondering openly whether or not the White Sox would win a single game during the rest of the season. If that wasn't bad enough, in the same column managed to poke fun at the White Sox midseason acquisition of Geoff Blum (which, obviously didn't pan out.)
Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again, when it comes down to it, I really don't know crap about sports. Yet somehow, someone who knows even less about sports than I do can make a living (and a comfortable one at that) as a sports commentator.
And still, I sit here unemployed.
Congrats to your 2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox.
They Did It. Somehow.
Al, my man you should have listened to the Score talking head 24hr sports radio (and the callers)up here during the Aug/Sept "choke". The broadcasters called for trading Joe Crede, claimed no fan will be in Comiskey Park, comparing it to the 69,84,03 Cubs (AS IF anyone could fail *that* bad). So the Sox win putting the strange bookend on the Red Sox title (WS1917-RS1918) now (RS2004-WS2005)... If this trend holds 1908 was 9 years prior to the last WS victory it must mean 9 years from now... YES 2014 WORLD CHAMPION CHICAGO CUBS!!!!!!!!!Post a Comment
