ESPN has suspended Bill Simmons, colloquially known as "Mr. Sports Individual," from tweeting (aside from comments pertinent to his book tour). This is the eventual fallout from a series of tweets Simmons made a few weeks ago in response to a Boston radio station that was critical of him. One of said tweets:â†µ
WEEI's "The Big Show" was apparently ripping me today. Good to get feedback from 2 washed-up athletes and a 60 yr-old fat guy with no neck.â†µ
It's tough for me to relate to Simmons, as I've never once been engaged in a feud of any sort with any other sports personality, ever. Then again, I've never been AM talk-radio fodder, and I suppose that if I were pressed, this is the exact sort of thing I would say in response. As an aside, I'm distressed by the news that one of the WEEI personalities doesn't have a neck. This carries serious medical implications, as the neck is responsible for providing blood supply to the head and directing oxygen to the respiratory system, among other functions. Can someone please call an ambulance on behalf of this gentleman?
