Don't Go Introducing Yourself To Cris Carter If You're A Blogger

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


Here's yet another humorous story to add to the vault and it again shows that MSMers have no idea how blogs work. Will Leitch wrote an article for Sporting News that goes into another interesting interaction he had at the Costas Now show. Not only did Buzz Bissinger lay into him, so did ESPN analyst Cris Carter....

“Hello, I’m Will.”

Cris frowned, and even sneaked in a scowl. “Are you the blog guy?”

I smiled. The best way, I’ve learned, to deal with the hostility is just to smile. They’re not expecting that. I suspect they all think we look like the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons or, more sinister, like a member of the thrash metal group GWAR. “Yes, sir, I do write a blog.”

Cris’ scowl was no longer sneaky. “You know, I got a problem with you,” the Ohio State grad said, through gritted teeth. “Some Michigan blog said I was an a--hole. Better nobody say that to my face.”

Smiling, trying to look calm, I said, “Well, sir, you know, I didn’t write that.”

Cris took a step closer to me. “You damn well better not of, ’cause if you had, I’d take you out right here.”
Once again.....Geez people in Sports are sensitive! One random guy said you were an asshole and you want to beat up everyone on the Internet. Cris Carter always seemed like a nice guy to me, but now he really does seem like an asshole. Go figure.

Bloggers, Or Anyone Associated With a Blog, Is Gonna Want to Steer Clear of Cris Carter (The Sporting Blog)

One can wonder what happened after Marino made Carter look like a moron every week.

Dan used to look like he enjoyed it.

Oooh, big man Cris Carter.

Hey Cris, what weighs more, a pound of feathers, or a pound of rocks?

It is like high school all over again. Athletes look at bloggers as that nerdy kid in high school who was always hanging out in the AV room. The jocks are trying to assert themselves over the geeks.

And the best way Cris Carter could have demonstrated that indeed was NOT an asshole...was to be an asshole to a guy who just introduced himself to him.

Gee, how did Cris get that unfounded asshole reputation?
