what I found particularly grating was that I drifted into sportswriting because I could write and I love sports -- seemed obvious. Then I spent night after night missing the actual sporting events that I enjoy watching, instead having to write 20 inches on a 78-25 blowout win in a high school girls' basketball game.

(well that and the pay)

e: combine that with the fact that print journalism is dying, the places you'd work up to are laying people off left and right, so there's no spots to try and aim for -- and the lower rungs of the ladder are being fought over by people who are overqualified for the position but need work. Poor pay and terrible prospects for the future.

Before college, I chose between going for sports journalism or teaching. I'm happy to know that I was smart in avoiding sports journalism. Unfortunately the same poo poo applies to teaching.

I saw this on twitter and knew it would be posted here. thanks for helping me stay sane. Goddammit Woj.

e: The poo poo that gets me is the language he uses. Like it's some mark against his MASCULINITY that Lebron attempted to pass the ball. And that poo poo is being propagated by this guy

Ehh he's still not as bad as the clown that wrote "Whore of Akron" a.k.a. "LEBRON JAMES IS A BIG MEANIE AND LEFT CLEVELAND."

I thought The whore of Akron is really more about the author's obsession and examining his irrational reaction. I haven't read it.

Yeah what took you so long to come out of the closet, Doug Collins you coward? I mean, we all know it's so incredibly easy to be a homosexual in a professional locker room. TOOK YA LONG ENOUGH, rear end in a top hat.

To provide context, the author, Josh Barro, is a gay conservative.
