Kornheiser's Today Show Appearance

So this is basically where we are. Tony Kornheiser can go on PTI, playfully ridicule Matt Lauer, and get an appearance two days later on Today. (See below.) I, on the other hand, can go on the Internet, playfully rib Thom Loverro, then publicly retract my ribbing, and get an appearance two days later on Lovey's Land, in which I'm called D-Bog, which is way too close to D-B@g for my taste. Speaking of taste, here's a taste of Lovey Land's return fire:

What is sad is that you have a generation that is reduced to embracing athletes celebrating touchdowns as "societal change." Perhaps it speaks to an envy of the generation of 40 or 50 year olds that D-Bog referred to that lived through and helped generate real "societal change."

As far as living in the suburbs, I don't want to be trumping D-Bog's D.C. city cred, but I was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y, and would venture to say I gained a lifetime of city cred on those Washington Avenue streets.

But what do I know. I like my job. I'm not smart enough to be embarrassed by writing about sports.

No he didn't go there. And thus began the great Post-Times battle of '09. Next up: Mike Wise takes down Corey Masisak AND Mike Jones within the same paragraph.

Either way, my previous suggestion that the Ovechkin-celebratory haters were largely middle-aged suburbanites was a cheap shot, though not, I'd guess, terribly untrue. And I'll admit that I'm neither from Brooklyn (Chautauqua County represent!) nor on the front-lines of societal change, though I do a great job of watching American Idol twice a week. And I'm still waiting for the Sports Reporters to have me and Loverro on together to discuss whether me-first celebrations are bad or good for American sports.

In any case, the title of this item was about Kornheiser's Today Show appearance; here it is.

I loved the part where Matt Lauer was saying that if he was making up a story, rather than a deer, he would have substituted "a mountain lion, a rabid mountain lion, or Katie Couric"! LOL

Do I smell a JOA between the Post and Times?!?

TK deftly avoided any acknowledgment of the Praying Mantis.

Btw, D-b@g is not as bad as T-b@g.

Thom Loverro is a windbag with an outsized ego. This is the guy who tried to convince us there was some sort of ongoing feud between the Nationals and Capitals over the "Red" campaigns, when no such thing exists in the first place.

Does anyone even read Loverro?

Also TK's theory of Roker-Lauer spring break needs to be made into a movie

Also on PTI yesterday was the Maryland women's story about eating children. It was just attributed to the Washington Post. Tony K couldn't even say your name.

I dunno, I have to say that Thom's comments are pretty funny.
