It's true, we can be a bit too harsh on the Sports Guy. After all, he did put us in the pantheon of best "Bucks" bloggers on the web. Every now and again, he can pull out some good stuff. And even though his links are normally a week or three old and he forgets that none of us find unintentional comedy with the Real World gang and LC of the Hills, we still have to appreciate that he has so many impassioned readers who love to give him a piece of their mind.
Scott (see below) certainly classifies as one of those guys. We really need this kid to be a featured commenter here on HP or with Brett over at Queen City Hoops. All of my frustration with pulling for the Bobcats can be encapsulated in this one succinct paragraph. And besides, he saved me a couple hours worth of verbal/writing vomit that I was ready to spew over this awful organization and their ridiculous actions (hiring Larry Brown is just one common example). Thank you, thank you, thank you.
"A day after Charlotte's largest employer, Wachovia Corporation, announced troubling first-quarter earnings and ensuing layoffs, Bobcats owner and all-around (expletive) Bob Johnson had the unmitigated GALL to slam the Charlotte business community for not backing his failing franchise. Are you freakin' kidding me!?!? This clown can't do his job, so he decides to contact the newspaper himself to blame everyone else (that's right, he called them). If I saw him or his invisible partner Michael "Isiah in Training" Jordan on the streets of Charlotte I'd punch them in the back of their arrogant heads, but hey, I don't have to worry about breaking the law, since they ARE NEVER HERE. Luckily local writer Tom Sorenson put Charlotteans' justified anger nicely into words with his commentary on the situation. Hey Seattle, you guys need a team? Make an offer!" --Scott, Charlotte
Also, if Seattle wants this steaming pile of filth, they are far too desperate for a basketball team. Just spend all your energy e-mail bombing Clay Bennett and his investors. Or pull for the Blazers. It's a much better use of your time and hatred.
(HT: The Sports Guy, because not only did he read this guy's email, he put it in his links this week. A great find.)
