Bill Simmons September 25th, 1969 – November 14th, 2016
Time of death: 4:11 pm est
Cris Collinsworth wandered into the mean streets of the internet and punched Bill Simmons right in his face.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved Grantland, love the Ringer, I love Simmon’s podcast, but Simmons short-lived HBO show was god awful and Collinsworth isn’t afraid to piss all over the grave of Any Given Wednesday before the body is even cold.
A textbook definition of an internet fatality and something the children of the future will be schooled about for generations to come. The flawless execution of this savage move cannot be understated.
Even though Cris had the decency to delete the tweet it just adds insult to injury. It’s like when you’d get in a fight with your friend as a kid and make him cry then need to apologize profusely instead of gloating in his face.
But the fact remains that the responses will live on and only time can heal the pain brought on by this burn.
