According to an article linked through Deadspin
, the Philly Inquirer
officially fired FJM favorite Stephen A. Smith today, which: congratulations. This fact reminds us here at the World-Wide Leader in Sports [Journalism Attacking]™ that Stephen A. Smith has a blog
. And further leads to three observations about that blog.
1. At the top it says: "Welcome to the Official Stephen A. Smith Online Blog."
"Online Blog" is now the "ATM Machine" of web-based redundancies.
2. Also at the top, it says this, and exactly this:"I Have Learned Over The Years That When One's Mind Is made up, This Diminishes Fear." -- Rosa Parks
The relevance of this inspirational quote to the chunks of nonsense that come out of Stephen A. Smith's mouth on a daily basis I will leave to the reader to determine. My question -- and no, I don't believe this is petty -- is: why capitalize every word of the quote except "made up?" He even capitalizes "The" and "That" and "This," and for some reason does not capitalize "Made Up." That is all kinds of nuts. That's like a note you find from a crazy old lady after she's found in her apartment being eaten by her cats.
3. Stephen A. has now posted exactly twice in like fifteen days. We post on this blog like 5-10 times a week, and we all have full-time jobs. What is the man doing?
