Did anyone know that Hunter S. Thompson writes a column over on ESPN.com’s Page 2? This week he discusses Monday Night Football, Rush Limbaugh, and other things in sports.
Rush Limbaugh is a lame professional Swine and he makes a good living at it. He is like a hired Geek in some traveling backwoods carnival — the freaks who bite the heads off Chickens — but Limbaugh is a modernized Geek who thinks he can bite the heads off of people.
Thompson is probably one of the only guys in the world that ESPN would have write articles and at the same time allow him to be critical of the mothership. You don’t see Stuart Scott criticizing ESPN on SportsCenter, but they allow Thompson to call them greedy in his article.
How much would it rock to have that much credibility as a writer?
