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.

SportsCenter is Dead to Me, Vol. MCMDXVII

Hey -- I have a question. SportsCenter is the show you watch to get highlights of sporting events, correct?

It's like "the news," but for sports. Where I can find news about what happened in sports.

I'm not wrong about this, right?

Except tonight -- and God knows how long this has been going on, and forgive me if I am late to this party -- there was a segment called The Bud Light FreezeFrame, wherein viewers were given the chance to vote on the "Image of the Week." And then Brian Kenny read -- aloud, so everyone could hear him; like, he didn't try to hide it at all -- various reader comments. One of them was in re: Williams hammering Rondo from Game 7 of the Hawks-Celtics series, and came from jpizzle39 (a commenter name so parodically parodic I couldn't beat it if I tried) and began "What a clothesline!"

I don't want to get all Bissingerian here, but do I need to be exposed to reader comments during SportsCenter?

No, I don't.

The Bud Light FreezeFrame. Every Wednesday on SportsCenter.

SportsCenter is dead to me. Again.

Thanks to those of you who pointed out that the foul was Game 7, not Game 4 (I think I was thinking "deciding game" or "4th win" or something). Also, I am aware that the Roman numeral sequence is not real or possible. I was trying to convey frustration with long number sequence. I should have made it longer. If I had written "Vol. MCMDVMXIIVMDCDMMMVVIIIII" everyone would have gotten it.
