We’re Gonna Take This Sitting Down
I’ve been called many things. This is a new one, though, regarding the Dan Patrick move to Sports Illustrated and the Rick Reilly hop over to ESPN:
Minutes after the Patrick-for-Reilly switch was announced, one of the merrymakers over at the Web site Deadspin quipped that ESPN had filled its “smart-alecky, middle-aged white guy quota.”
I wonder who that fellow was? He sure sounds like a guy who would make people merry. Moreover, I want to know which guy in that illustration is the merrymaker. Is it the yellow shirt-black pants combo? That seems like merry outfit to me.
(Truth be told, the article is a pretty decent read.) ◼ New York TimesTags: dan patrick makes a great fondue, deadspin, merrymakers, new york times, rick reilly
