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.
