And just like that, Simmons reminds people why he's the best in the business

Look, I'm a Bill Simmons apologist. Even when he got into his really bad overly-Boston centric writing and nothing existed beyond the Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics. Even when he couldn't get past his own cliched writing about the Karate Kid.

However, his latest article has nothing to do with sports, and it could be one of the best things I've read by him.

It's not really funny, but if you've ever had a dog growing up or have a dog now that is pretty much family to you...well, you can relate to the article.


Yeah, call me a sucker for sentimental articles about dogs, but...well...yeah.

i am a huge vagina when it comes to man's best friend, and that article put a lump in my throat. especially since my boy is about to turn 4, not that much younger than the dooze at the time of his dianosis. scary.

i heard badlander only loves two things in this world: his truck and killing puppies....that son of a bitch

i automatically assumed that the story involved the death of a dog and opted to not read it as i am not a fan of hearing about/reading about/seeing dogs die (even though we all know that "all dogs go to heaven")

............, there i was...
