If you’re a football fan, you read a lot of articles between weekends.? If you’re not a football fan, you suck.? But I digress.? The fact is that we get 11 hours of sports cocaine every Sunday, followed by a quick hit on Monday evening.? The rest of the week is about coming down.? So we read the experts’ analysis, hoping to find a reason to believe our team(s) will win (or not suck excessively) during the next weekend’s binge.? Maybe I wasn’t hitting the right sites in the past, but I find that there are a lot of annoyingly stupid writers expressing their annoyingly stupid opinions on the web.? And yes, I understand that my own opinion likely falls into this category.? I was reading a column by Rich Eisen on NFL.com.? I don’t actually have an opinion on Mr. Eisen, but one of his readers does.? They sent him a remarkably concise review:

“You suck, you dumb bastard” – Ing. Mario Arredondo

Brilliant.? Such mastery of the English language.? It brings tears to my eyes.? The fact that Mr. Eisen printed the mail automatically elevates him in my opinion? (but I’m sure he’ll have time to write something that makes me really angry, eventually).? It makes me think that there are a few authors who might not have the same self awareness/confidence.? With these people in mind, I would like to suggest a “You Suck, You Dumb Bastard” (YSYDB) award.? For now, it is my honor to nominate:

Gene Wojciechowski – Almost everything this guy writes seems like he’s trying to make people mad.? It’s an interesting approach.? But you’d think he’d get tired of being wrong all the time.

Gregg Easterbrook – “Good vs. Evil” has to be the most incredible piece of snot ever written.? Never has so much space been filled with so much snot.

Pete Prisco – Seems like a nice enough fellow, but he tends to change his mind/opinions a lot.? He? might not? deserve a YSYDB award, but he probably will, eventually.
