Where’s our nomination? Why aren’t we in the running for best Sports Blog? We’ve only been around for six months and we’ve brought more than one great post to the table. And while the links make it seem like we’re being cocky and arrogant.
We really don’t care that we didn’t get nominated. The thing that annoys us? Kissing Suzy Kolber as best sportsblog two years running. Seriously. That right there is so stupid it makes me wonder how many of the Blogfrican High Council ate paint chips as a child.
The fact is, they only bring one post of note per year. Last year? Grossman. This year? The guide to being an insufferable Masshole. And do you notice something interesting? They’re both written by the same guy.
That’s right. Self-proclaimed fat bitch Big Daddy Drew wrote both posts. The rest of the writers are essentially ballast. (Yes, I know Ufford is the man behind With Leather, but for KSK, he’s no different than Falco.) They could all disappear, and the fact of the matter is, the quality of the site would not wane.
In fact, I’ll admit as I throw up in my mouth a little that it may actually go up.
Secondly, the association to Will Leitch. They were birthed in the commenting section of Deadspin, and like a proud papa, he brags on KSK every chance he gets. That association gives KSK a cachet that they can’t buy.
(Not to say that if my cousin Christopher, miss Barclay, and the Extrapolater get together and form a blog of moderate repute I would not brag upon them every chance I get.)
And you remember that Fantasy Football Keeper league contest? You know, the one for a KSK Reader to hang with the likes of Jaime Mottram and Dan Shanoff? You know the winner was the lady from Strike Zones and End Zones. However, what you did not know, and let my put on my tabloid reporters hat here…
SportsGirl365 was seen canoodling with KSK gadabout Unsilent Majority in the off time before the contest began and they remain amorous to this very day.
That means they don’t care about you, Brooklyn Boy or you Miami Diesel. All they want is your time. They don’t want to chill with you. Your opinions on the majestic Adrian Peterson? Meaningless.
They just want you to read their efforts at comedy and move along.
And finally, the simple fact of the matter is, shouldn’t a humor blog be funny? I mean that’s what KSK claims to be, right? Sure, now they’re saying that they want to make “cheap, obvious dick jokes.” But you know what that is?
That’s an admission of their lack of talent and the fact they think they can get away with it. They’re just the new Bill Simmons. They were new and fresh for a moment there.
Now they just suck.
