In case you're unaware, ESPN suspended arguably its most popular personality on Wednesday when the company sidelined Bill Simmons for three weeks for having the audacity to profanely refer to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a liar, then challenge his employers to reprimand him for it.

Hey, That’s My Analogy!

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Sometimes I don't even know if my relatives still read this blog. But in the last week I've found evidence that someone important has possibly been doing so: ESPN Sports Guy Bill Simmons. Last week's most read piece on ESPN.com, Simmons' column on the World Cup, ran on July 1. It ...

Simmons Loves Durant A Little Too Much

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

Bill Simmons and Chad Ford did an interactive mock draft yesterday, in which they alternated selections, with Simmons taking the odd picks and Ford taking the evens.
