    The Patriots are even better than they were last year.

    Skip Bayless ‏@RealSkipBayless 11h
    If the Patriots need to win one game without Brady, I'd bet on Tebow far more than I would on Ryan Mallett.

    Skip Bayless ‏@RealSkipBayless 11h
    Tebow can't run Brady's offense but he can win games in the NFL when they're on the line.

    Skip Bayless ‏@RealSkipBayless 11h
    Not a good night for Tebow. Ran strong yet this time no spread option called for him. WHY NOT? 2 near-miss bullets, one awful overthrow INT.
    He may, until he checks in bank account, then I doubt he cares.

    I just happened to land on Sports Center last night while flipping and they were talking NFL so I lingered.

    Then they went to their fantasy consultant to ask about the value of a 2nd or 3rd string running back on whatever team they were talking about...

    News flash. Not everyone plays fantasy football. I can zone out and sit through an occasional NBA segment or even the latest non-story about Rex Ryan or Timothy, but I can't tolerate men in suits on my TV breaking down fantasy football.

    Heh. I still have part of the article where Barreiro referred to a certain "chowderhead" in the Star Tribune years ago. I had called into KFAN about a Twins thing, and it somehow made it into the paper.

    So, you're all saying I should have made more of an effort to save my TMQ appearance last year?

The twatter feed is pure audience retention.
    Back before Twitter and when the ESPN message boards were just starting up, my comment was featured on the primetime Sportscenter about the Michael Vick story. I didn't even get to see it. There was a bunch of people the next day congratulating me and telling me they saw my comment up there. I was ****ed.

    Sweet Jeebus. I didn't even consider that it was an Onion article. I had this great rant typed up and read your post before I hit send. It's terribly sad I didn't, even for a moment, think that this could be satire.
    The "Los Angeles" made me do a double take on it, since I would think any news article re: ESPN would be out of Bristol, CT. Otherwise, another great Onion prank.
