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.
