The tide is turning

Last night, on my drive home from work, I happened to turn on a sports station. This is something I had gotten out of the habit of doing, since regional sports stations can be boring if you don't like any of the regional teams (I used to like one of them).

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that all the hosts and most of the callers were expressing great distaste for the antics of the Arrogant One! This was like getting an early Christmas present of the most wonderful kind. Rationality is prevailing, the veil is being lifted. The truth is coming to light.

If the Lakers miss the playoffs this year, I think the masses will fully turn on their Chosen One and his failure will be complete.

Joy to the world...

The headline on the New York Times' lead sports column on Friday was something to the effect of "The Fall of Kobe." I made a note to remember it for you and then promptly forgot it.

It's the thought that counts.

Who is that uncredited dude stiffly walking away from that explosion? Is this a new Terminator film? How do you not put Sigourney Weaver in your poster?

How to write like a gossip columnist

Anyone can do it!

Just keep in mind to never use your source's name, and always play up a celebrity's reaction to something using the following words:

Blast
Slam
Fuming

Here's an example:

"Latigo Flint blasted reports that his guns do not actually fire live ammunition."

Use them in combination!:

"Gil slammed fellow carnie Sal's insinuation that he got a bit too personal with a badger. "It was cold and he wasn't even there!" the one-eyed Whack 'em Cats operator fumed."

That's right, kiddies. Anyone can write a gossip column. And with the internet, anyone can publish it, too!

p.s. Don't forget to put a salacious slant on everything. And blow things out of proportion, too. In fact, you may want to change your middle name to that.
