Drew Magary can bite me

Drew Magary writes for Deadspin. He’s a jackass piece of shit who should be working for the Pennywhistle Press. If I ever run into him face to face, I’ll kick his ass with my judo powers. And believe me, I have judo powers.

A few minutes ago a friend of mine cursed out Drew in a message to me. I figured this could only mean one thing: He ripped me on Deadspin.

And, indeed, the punk did. In his Funbag column, he answered a question about LeBron James dying by writing: “And there would be a thousand more horrible columns from the Jeff Pearlmans of the world saying WE killed LeBron, and that society is going to hell and all that bullshit.”

To hell with Magary.

Ha. Just kidding. Honestly, I love the guy’s writing and—though we only communicate via occasional IM—very much like the guy. I tend to have a thin skin in some areas, but not in this area. I barely remember the column he’s referring to, but I’m guessing it probably sucked. Or at least struck Drew as sucking. Which is fair—you put stuff out there, you should accept any criticism that comes along with it. I don’t always agree with the guy, but I enjoy his takes.

Good times.

  1. I don’t think he’s actually referring to a specific column itself, just a general column he thought you’d write if LBJ was found of a self-inflicted GSW the day after losing the finals. Glad you found it funny- I thought it was pretty amusing…

  2. I would hope that you have thick skin, because you get slammed a lot. If it wasn’t for Chass, you’d probably be #1.

  3. Kirk had it correct, there wasn’t one particular column that Jeff did that Magary disliked, he just used him as stand-in.

    I was wondering if Jeff was going to respond to this. Good to see you have a sense of humor.
