Bill Simmons is a moron, Thin Man. He just babbles on and on about his wife and his friends and how much he bets on sports - that's not a column, that's a diary.

Chris obviously went with maximum irritating jack-assery, coupled with minimum substantive content. And succeeded wildly.

So it looks like we might have a special guest commentary for this one. I just hope that our guest writer remembers a) on which side her bread is buttered and b) that Tony Kornheiser is such a giant in the news business that he makes Walter Cronkite look like Carson Daly.
