We freely admit that this item is unrelated to the sport of football, but for the fact that one of the participants (Charles Robinson) covers football for Yahoo! Sports, and the other one (Rick Reilly) co-wrote the worst football screenplay of all time.
Charles Robinson has taken Rick Reilly to task, Twitter style, regarding Reilly’s recent reporting on the annual Running of the Bulls in Spain.
And that objective caused Robinson to come unglued.
“Dangerous self-aggrandizing garbage,” Robinson writes. “Shameful.“ (Then again, maybe it was just a belated review of Leatherheads.)
Robinson explains that the purpose of the newspaper is to distract a charging bull. Using it as a weapon serves only to piss the bull off. And thus to endanger the runners even more than they’re already endangered.
“Rick Reilly and ESPN are lucky he didn’t get
someone killed,” Robinson says. “Do some research before you endanger other people’s
lives. Reckless & terrible.”
Thanks to Richard Deitsch of SI.com for pointing out Robinson’s tweets, which have spiced up a lazy Sunday afternoon. Now, excuse me while I swat my bull-sized 13-year-old in the ass with a newspaper.
