Daily Musing


 You agree with all of Scoop's reasons why Chicago should have its own ESPN site.

I think the main reason is the Olympics, but Ditka is a damn good reason, too.

For how long has it been OK for "journalists" to write like sixteen-year-olds? "Gonna"? Seriously? "Nobody got swagger like us." Are you kidding me?

"Nobody got any idea how stupid we all are so I gonna write the way an idiot speaks."

I agree with most of the reasons, but he's wrong about "Rock & Roll, part 2." It started in Denver, at Colorado Rockies (NHL) hockey games. I'm old, and I was there.

from the Rockies' wikipedia entry:

Perhaps the Rockies' most lasting contribution to the sports world is the use of "Rock and Roll, Pt. 2" (AKA "the Hey Song") as a sports celebration. It was first played in a sport setting at Rockies games in the late 1970s,[1] and was later played in most North American sports venues to celebrate home team scores for the better part of 25 years.
