The apocolypse of awesome

On Bob Costas’ show the other night they had Deadspin’s Will Leitch and sportswriter/author H.G. “Buzz” Bissinger (Shattered Glass, Friday Night Lights) on. Bissinger had a *major* stick up his butt about the Internet and how the elite Know Betters at the drive-by media should run everything. The centerpiece of his argument is a dramatic reading of a Big Daddy Drew piece about a baseball pitcher’s man-boobs. Severe language warning (duh).

  • MORE POPCORN! Wright’s next move should be to prove that Obama was in church during some of the more colorful sermons.

  • Of course environmentalism is the cover-up, but I suspect you can follow the money on this one to someone in a turban.

  • Uhh, wow. This would be why CBS has no viewers and is considering just running CNN Headline News for half an hour.

  • Shocking, I know, but it’s just more proof that he’s yet another politician.

  • They’re going to operate on the theory that if Obama had been on the ballot Hillary would still have won by around 10 points. Which is probably about right.

  • It’s a bus-throwing contest

    Obama threw Wright under the bus, Wright did it back at him over the weekend, and now Obama’s done it again. I want extra butter on my popcorn, please.

    UPDATE: Al Sharpton has apparently accused Obama of “grandstanding in front of white people”. MORE POPCORN!

  • World’s scariest plant?

    It looks like it should have a monologue. Plus a bonus video of Walken’s latest awesome SNL skit: “The Googly-Eyes Gardener”.

  • A great story

    I hadn’t heard about this one before.

    In 1976 at a Cubs/Dodgers game in LA a couple of morons ran onto the field between innings and proceeded to start trying to burn an American flag in the middle of the outfield. Cubs outfielder Rick Monday ran over and stole the flag away from them before they could light it. For added punishment, close behind him was the legendary Tommy Lasorda, then the Dodgers third base coach, who “used every swear word a longshoreman has ever known” on the perps. Good stuff.

    UK police are refusing to help a former Muslim who converted and is receiving death threats, telling him to “don’t be such a crusader”.

    What’s it look like when the home plate umpire gets nailed with a fastball? About what you’d think.

  • Yeah, because giving up land has worked so well in the past.
