Hey, No One Called Me To Tell Me They Felt Sorry For Me!


I guess we just live in an era where everyone is a cynic and everything sucks. I guess no one appreciates sports on the level that I do. Well, that's just sad.

Well, I'm going to just keep doing what I love doing: watching reality TV shows for 15-year-old girls and criticizing every black general manager in the NBA.

I expect 15,000 words from Simmons that will break down in the following way:

Words 1 - 50: Congrats to Colts
Words 51 - 14,000: Pats are still better
Words 14,001 - 14,998: Fire Doc Rivers
Words 14,999 - 15,000: Yankees Suck

I've been waiting for this post all weekend. I've been one of the biggest SG apologists on this site, but that article on Friday was so sanctimonious and deluded, I wanted to throw up. We don't love the Pats because we're a bunch of 21st century plays haters. In the immortal words of ksk, ghhhhh...

Has he become so oblivious that he doesn't even remember the nature of US sports passion? Why would we root for the Pats when US fans ALWAYS root for the underdog?! You'd think any dickhead who has watched Rocky IV 8 bazillion times would understand this... guess not...

I still like the SG, but that article was AWFUL!

PS - Kudos to the Colts and Manning AND the Pats and Brady. That was one of the best playoff games I have EVER seen. Awesome stuff...

What's with the random racist crack? I haven't heard him get on Joe Dumars' case. There's plenty wrong with Simmons' writing (as bleedjetsgreen just put so well) but racism isn't one of them.

SteveJeltzFan said...

So, Drew won't publicize his last name, but has no qualms about posting a photo of him and Simmons? Odd.

Jack Fu said...

"What's with the random racist crack? I haven't heard him get on Joe Dumars' case."

You haven't been paying attention, then. He ripped Dumars mercilessly for three years for drafting Darko. He even brought it up again relatively recently in some NBA column. Not saying Simmons is or isn't anything, but saying he "hasn't got on Joe Dumars's case" is flat-out wrong.

Gabe said...

Simmons doesn't rip on Dumars as much as the others because Dumars is with a winning team. But yeah, I get that feeling once in while read Simmons' columns that there's an undertone there. He unloads on black GMs of bad teams. Maybe not racist, but definitely un-PC. Meh. So does everyone else. We've probably all got some racist tendencies.

Gabe said...

I am unable to form a cognizant thought. suicide.

Big Daddy Drew said...

Well played, Steve.

4giantsfans said...

Boston definitely has some UN-PC undertones...no?

Beantown said...

BleedJetGreen - great job on the props that was a great game to watch if you are a football fan. I have to admit as well, look out for the Jets next year it's rumored they are 28 million under the cap. Asante will probably be in green.

Jackin'4Beats said...

I remember Drew's last name from that podcast he posted a while back...

I want $1 milllllion dollars in small bills to keep it secret!!!

HA

Loved those games yesterday, especially since bandwagon boys like beantown can go away for 7 months.

Let's just hope Peyton and Rex don't pull a Eugene Robinson the night before the big game.

Beantown said...

Bandwagon, please. It was a great entertaining game. As Dante Culpepper would say "it's time to get my head back to the grind board"...that has to be the craziest ass quote I ever heard, well maybe except when Tyson said he could use his left jst as well which made him "amphibious"....classic!

Matt said...

beantown - It was Charles Shackleford, NC State basketball great and journeyman center in the NBA, who described his left handed shooting as amphibious.

Omar said...

very nice. i was waiting for someone to make fun of him for that. like most people i'm still reading his columns but it has gotten out of control now. if he stopped writing about the nba, i might wash my hands of him for good. i thought he actually had the balls to pick the colts but then they reverted back into his abdomen and all was back to normal.

nobody called me to congratulate the bears win either. don't cry for me argentina.

Dave F'n Bates said...

My only complaint about this post is that is wasn't longer. This week should be officially renamed National Lay Into the Sports Guy--Brutally, Viciously, Relentlessly, and At Every Available Opportunity--Week.

PS, bleedjetgreen: couldn't have said it better myself. His piece last week was so fawning and self-absorbed and filled with the most ridiculous brand of Boston homerism that I could barely finish it.

PPS, Go Jets.

Beantown said...

Ohh was it Matt, thanks for setting me straight. I can't think right now under the circumstances...

stig o'tracy said...

matt and beantown--- Chris Washburn made the "amphibious" quote.

DMtShooter said...

I went back to SG's Friday post, and lo and behold... he's now tied with his wife for the year.

So there's 3,000 words down right there...

joe said...

I love his "hard to keep a dynasty going" sour grapes lines.

Yeah, it's hard, it's even harder when you constantly run out waiver wire guys and undrafted free agents to prove how smart you are, despite being like $30M under the cap.

Patriots fans have no right to pin this loss on their no-name defensive players and lack of depth, everyone knew this for the past two years, and the Pats had amble time and money to fix it, but doing so would force them to conced another "comes out of nowhere, how do the pats do it, Bill's a genious" story.

peb said...

Chris Washburn made the "amphibious" quote.

Nope. It was absolutely Charles Shackleford.

stig o'tracy said...

Ooof--- sorry about that, guys! I guess I was mixing that up with the stereo debacle... Thanks, peb, and sorry I doubted you, matt!

Those guys RAPE Simmons

DBDR said...

His whole NBA column where he basically said that after the Celtics and Lakers of the mid-80s that there weren't any teams as strong as the Celtics was laughable. I'm no Bulls fan, but I guess the team that trotted out MJ, Pippen, and Rodman all in their primes and won 69 games was just a collection of bums? Idiot.

Ross said...

Simmons co-owns a fantasy team. He actually RUNS a fantasy team with his friend. I mean that alone is just...wow

P.S. His column was veeeeeery whiney
