The challenge: II

As promised, I have allowed Chris, the angry reader, to take his shot …


Everything I had to say to you I already said.

I find it funny that you think you can put out a complete garbage column on what happens to my favorite sports team (NEWSFLASH: the only thing that can ruin Blake Griffin’s career is a major injury, not the fact that he will be a member of the LA Clippers. This isn’t Michael Olowokandi, Pt. Deux!) which, on top of everything else, is the equivalent of a bad direct-to-DVD SNL alum comedy with lame fart jokes.

Yet you act all incensed and go cry to your approximately 19 readers about how mean Chris from Los Angeles has just sent you a nasty e-mail.

R U kiddin’ me?!

Here’s my ‘Challenge’ to you: Stop sucking at your job, don’t kick a team when it’s down like some poison pen bully, and don’t dish out unless you’re prepared to take some, too.

  1. Ha! Funny!

    I LOVED joe piscopo’s latest movie ‘Farty McFartenstein’s fartastic fartventure!’ He really nailed that challenge! Satire! Slice of life! Funny! A new, exciting comedic voice, and I, for one, can’t WAIT to see how he follows this up. Deadspin comments? An email implying that Peter King is impotent? Shine on you crazy diamond!

  2. I hope this isn’t his response to your challenge. Seriously weak. Just another example of the Internet’s ability to delude anyone with a computer into thinking they, too, can really write and should grace us with their pithy thoughts. Dude needs to get his meds adjusted.

    Chris, among the rules for writing an opinion piece, which seems to be your only vehicle, is to back up what you’re saying with clear, concise, coherent arguments. All you provide are maladjusted venom and hero-worship befitting an 8 year old. Next time, show us specific, deconstructed examples of Pearlman “sucking” at his job or historical, fact-based reasons why the Blake Griffin won’t be the next Michael Olowakandi. Don’t tell us, show us. Until then, please step away from the keyboard and leave the writing to professionals, thank you.

  3. Chris is a dick but have you ever considered that you are way too sensitive to have such a public role? You write some pretty harsh things about folks all the time, but the second someone says anything harsh to you (be it Chris or Emmitt Smith), you get really flustered and insulted. Really, Jeff, do you think the people you write about don’t feel the same way? You can be a journalist or you can be sensitive, but you’re not very good at being both.

  4. I think my favorite part is the ‘R U Kidding Me’ part. Clearly, he has given himself away as an eleven year old girl who texts too much.

    And seriously, he’s upset because of a negative column on the Clippers? He realizes he roots for the Clippers, right?

    I wonder if he’s written this stuff to Simmons…
