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.
