The Greatest Game Ever Played vs. The Worst Dance Ever Danced

04/06/2010

“Know your audience.” It’s a primary canon of journalism.  I watch a lot of sports, and I have many strong opinions on them…  and now, I know nobody cares about them…

Good news is I am a renaissance man, because in addition speaking cogently on the ills of the Lakers and the woes of the Dodgers, I can wax reality-TV with the best of you “better-halves.”

Last night, I posted twice on the biggest night college sports. The first was a subtle, ironic post highlighting how perennial favorite Duke is also getting calls... Crickets.

The second was a witticism hoisted at Duke’s coach who had all but forsaken his own former player, Christian Laettner, who made the biggest shot in what was, up until Coach K’s post-game comments, considered “The Greatest College Game Ever Played.” More crickets, 1 “like.”

Then, I make one absurd, flippant comment about how Kate (less Jon and “the eight”) can’t dance…  A Facebook windfall:  3 “likes,” 11 comments, and a couple personal messages.

So, in light of the Facebook evidence, I think there will be more posts about how American Idol’s Andrew Garcia is a doppelganger for Kim Jong-Il, or how Ramona on the Real Housewives of NYC looks like rabid squirrel, or how I plan to “suvee” all my Salmon, in an ode to Top Chef, than posts on Kobe’s low-post game.

Ladies, I write for you.

    Does that mean no more sports posts? Whoopee! It’s about time a man paid attention to my needs, journalistically speaking of course.

    Now why dontcha appeal to both Sports and Entertainment Tonight. Test the water with a status of:

    “Reggie Bush broke up with Kim Kardashian due to her constant need to be in the spotlight. At least that’s what she said at her press conference.”

    Steve you have always been about the ladies. Like always. This whole sport thing is just a fad. I am just waiting for it to blow over.
