Quote of the day: Bill Simmons, Page 2

Over on ESPN.com:
The greatest hitter and pitcher of the past 50 years both cheated to get where they were ... and if that's not enough, our all-time hits leader was a convicted felon who bet against his own team. Ladies and gentleman, America's pastime! Is it time to remake "Field of Dreams" and include a scene where Shoeless Joe sells $3,000 of HGH to Moonlight Graham?
That about sums it up, I think.

And you didn't even mention.. in this post and the previous one.. the NCAA. Amateur sports? I think not :(

It is sad how we (especially guys and alumni) worship at this altar.. guess it won't stop.. much anyway.. as long as Super Bowl commercials keep bringing in the megabucks.
