Baseball from the Shyster's point of view.
I hate to go all Bissinger-like, but this type of crap only gives fuel to the anti-blogger movement. Doesn't it?
Probably does. I'll be honest and say that I find Magary to actually be funny -- in small doses he's off-putting, but over the course of 1500 words his profanity almost becomes sublime in some weird way -- but yeah, he ain't exactly elevating the discourse.
His crudeness on Deadspin fits somehow in a way that's less than vulgar, even though his stuff, at face value, is very vulgar. I usuall get a few good laughs out of his stuff. But I, for one, am glad football is taking a backseat to baseball on Sunday night. That's the way it should be.
As if any more proof were needed football is a made for TV nonsport created for the moron hordes suffering from ADHD.
i think its pretty easy to really enjoy both. ive been doing it my whole life. i also enjoy profanity.
Wow. I think we've discovered the ghostwriter for Mr. Garrison's novel on South Park.
KSK and Shysterball are two of my favorite blogs.I consider myself a thoughtful, intellectual type. I also love profanity. I love South Park and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I also love to read books about art and ninteenth century American history.BDD is one of the best sports bloggers out there right now, and his profanity makes who he is. I don't believe in all this high and low discourse stuff. There's stuff I like to read, and there's stuff I don't. Sports By Brooks is a pretty "lowbrow" thing that I don't like. There's a lot of "highbrow" stuff that's too pretentious.Craig/Shyster - I wouldn't want you to change what you are. You're great, and I thank Neyer for continually linking to you. But Drew is great too.
I won't disagree with you Grant. While he's certainly not my cup of tea, Drew is very good at what he does, and I think it comes down to the fact that no matter what you think about the profanity, his writing is honest, original, and his voice is his own. There are a lot of guys who work blue like Drew does, but they don't have his talent. I liken them to Andrew Dice Clay, whereas Drew is Richard Pryor. A couple of minor superficial similarities, but they are in totally different leagues.
