Rick Reilly

New, comments

Once upon a time, Rick Reilly was a really good sportswriter.

Then he got that gig on the back page of SI, and stopped writing stories, and started getting all human-interesty.

And has now gone to ESPN and is doing the same.  Here's what I just saw on ESPN's front page:

National Voice: Rick Reilly

Did a guy with no arms and legs recently pass you in a triathlon? Don't worry. Craig Dietz lives to compete.

I have to assume that, sometime in the late-90s, Rick Reilly got some career advice from Kent Brockman, because his column has turned into a print version of "Bart's People."

Sigh.
