Dude’s a genius

January 24, 2008

In the sports blogging world, there isn’t a better writer than Big Daddy Drew. He’s filthy, smart, funny, and honest, and although the great majority of his posts on Kissing Suzy Kolber and Deadspin are about as shallow as it gets, they’re fantastically funny. (‘Fantastically funny’? Take it easy, Gene Shalit).

However, this week BDD’s weekly entry on Deadspin is really well done. Every Thursday during the NFL season, Big Daddy Drew writes the Thursday NFL Dick Joke Jambaroo (or something like that). This week he writes about the difference between sports journalists in the print media and bloggers, and why ‘respected’ writers should just shut the hell up when complaining about blogs.

If you’re a fan of blogs, or write a blog, or even just like reading….click on this link and read this week’s jambaroo. And then go back in the Deadspin archives and read as many of the past Jambaroos as you can. You will not be disappointed.

This guy is my new favorite author

October 4, 2007

Big Daddy Drew is a contributor to one of my favorite blogs, ‘Kissing Suzy Kolber’ (see link on the left side of page–I don’t feel like linking it here). He also comments on the sports blog, ‘Deadspin.’ And if I’m not mistaken, he is the genius behind last year’s series involving the antics of the Sex Cannon, aka Rex Grossman. If you haven’t read these pieces before, stop what you are doing immediately, go to KSK, search for these articles, and prepare to have a fantastic four minutes. Or longer, if you’re somewhat illiterate.

This season he has been contributing a weekly NFL piece called something like ‘Big Daddy Drew’s Dick Joke Jambaroo’ or some shit. Anyway, its fucking hilarious. Read the most recent one here. Search Deadspin for the other four Jambaroos if you like that one. If you don’t like it, swallow some pills with a quart of Gordon’s Gin because I don’t want to be friends with you and you do not deserve to breathe air anymore.
