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.
