 Post subject: Maholm should "throw a couple games"
PostPosted: Fri Jul 11, 2008 10:58 am 
This is one of the most idiotic columns in the PG in quite some time. Is Smizik trying to be funny? It's either that or he's advocating illegal BlackSox type of crap.

Apparently Elmer doesn't understand tongue-in-cheek humor.

I understand it just fine. I just didn't find this column funny.

Humor is not Smizik's strong suit. His real talent is somehow getting paid for the crap he churns out.

His "talent" is always being negative. I like columnists (and radio show hosts, message board posters, etc). who are positive when the situation calls for it and negative when the situation calls for it. There's no credibility if someone is always being negative or always being an apologist.

He must have a long guaranteed contract to allow him to write crap and have it printed...

I'm not trying to say that everything Smizik writes is crap. He's an ok columnist, I just sense that at this point in his career he's not all that interested in the sports, but is still interested in keeping the paychecks coming in.

Rather like myself, I might add.
