    They have 2 live cameras set up at his house, filming him and his pals eating while watching that game on TV thingee.

    If you enjoyed the epic collapse of the Red Sox in 2011, Simmons' record of the final night of the season was hugely entertaining:

    And so it went for the 2011 Red Sox, the biggest chokers of any Boston team in my lifetime. At least the '78 Sox fought back and forced a one-game playoff; these guys couldn't even do that. They disintegrated over an entire month, day after day after day. You can't even explain how brutal they were unless you followed the free fall firsthand.

    Conversely, his book "Now I can die in peace" and 30 for 30 episode "Four Days in October" are great for Sox fans.

    I met him a few years ago. Seemed like a pretty good guy and Grantland is one of my top websites to visit.

    this isn't bad but it SOOO isn't what he used to be about. but it is somewhat entertaining. Jalen is chilling.

    The column he wrote after the pats won in 2001 was one of the best columns I've ever read. he expressed exactly what is was like to be a Boston sports fan at that moment; and that was the moment everything changed.

    I'm conflicted about Simmons.

    1) I couldn't give a flying fuck about basketball. Not the NBA. Not the tourney.

    2) I'm obsessed with the NFL and college football.

    3) Bill Simmons loves the NFL, hates college football, but his No. 1 passion is the NBA.

    So in order to get NFL shit, I have to endure basketball shit.

    I hate the guy and his style. He is a glorified blogger to me an nothing else. He is a poster on an internet forum like this that got lucky. He is horrible on TV and radio, listening to him i wonder to myself how does a guy from BAWSTAAAN sound more like fucking totally Pually Shore? Oh, it's because he is a Hollywood wannabee. I keep waiting for him to say "GGGGGRRRIIINDAAAGGGE BBUUUUUDDDYYYY"

    "OOOOOHHH your a BAAASSSKEETBALL PlAAAAYER"

    Ponderous.
