FIRE JOE MORGAN: Correction?


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.

Eric from the great state of Indiana writes in to correct my ad hominem attack on Eckie:

I watched most of the show tonight, and the "Row Row Row Your Boat" question was the "play along at home" text message question (or whatever the hell they call it - I'm not a regular viewer). That question wasn't on the actual show on which Li'l David appeared. I know because when I saw he was on I decided to watch until he missed a question. I have no idea when or if he missed a question, but one minute he was there and the next he was gone. I suspect NBC edited his failure out so as to not crush the hopes and dreams of all the other tiny people out there.

It will be hard to know what really happened, because as soon as the 1 Vs. 100 episodes are finished taping, the master tapes are sent to a vault in the Smithsonian, not to be opened for 1000 years, and the text of the shows are etched onto titanium plates, which are then attached to satellites and blasted into space in an attempt to show aliens what our culture is really all about. But my guess is that Eck just flat-out hustled his way off the show, like he always does.

Did you guys know he's only like 5'7"?

As if we needed to spend more time on this...

Clarification from reader Warren:

The question in question WAS for play-at-home contestants. However, Bob Saget identified two celebrity panelists, one right and one wrong.

Jeopardy! champion Brad Rutter correctly answered C. The diminutive sparkplug was singled out as an incorrect dwarf for answering A.

Not the dwarf part.

Guaranteed that he WAS on the show with the question in question.

I think we can all agree that (a) Eck is small and (b) he got the question wrong.

I should go back to posting things about sports journalism, maybe.
