Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

Did I Miss Something?

After the 3rd quarter of the Champs Sports Bowl today, a guy named Andrew Rizzo had the chance to toss a football through a tiny hole from 30 yards out for a million bucks. He came up about six yards short. Then the on-field MC presented him a check for $1000 and said, very loudly:

"Let's here it for Andrew Rizzo -- a winner in every sense of the word!"

Except, I guess, for the sense of the word "winner" that means "someone who [just] won a contest."

On a side note, I'd like to mention that amazingly, against all odds, even though I've seen a thousand of them, I am always -- ALWAYS -- excited to watch a dude try to toss/shoot/kick something through a hole in a piece of wood for money.

Tonight, at halftime of the Clippers-Kings game, ten tiny children played a full-court game of basketball. Score was not kept.

That and a caramel apple I ate were the best parts of the evening.
