ESPN sports business person Darren Rovell has certainly taken his beatings lately, most notably in the form of a particularly savage Will Leitch takedown a month ago. One thing you cannot deny: the guy knows how to draw the ire of the interwebs, and he may have finally hit a nadir with his tweet earlier today.
On tonight’s "Money Talk" on @sportscenter, I explore the marketing of "Liger," the union of Lindsey and Tiger.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) March 19, 2013
Oh great, an Internet "thing" that isn't really a thing and didn't, in any way, shape or form need exploring. Unless Rovell finds a really good financial reason to talk about this, the relationship between a golfer and a skier, then what makes him different from, say, Mario Lopez or Billy Bush? He's officially devolved into gossipy, tabloid schlock. I liked him better when he was trying to be the president of tweeters.
