When sports writers try to be funny…

I have a few friends in the print media, lots of them are genuinely funny, but they sprinkle in little shards of funny while writing their columns. It works in short doses, especially when it adds something to the story. This on the other hand? This could be the worst sports column I’ve ever read. Outside of Keith Olbermann, Dan Patrick, Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole, sports figures, especially columnists should stick to sports, not comedy. I agree that Bettman is a jerk, but this column is filled with so many terrible punchlines and bad jokes that you kind of almost forget the Bettman parts. We get it, you’ve just discovered pop culture references. Well done…
