The second story on SportsCenter this morning: Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are breaking up.
This confirms something I’ve been mulling for a while: sports news is basically celebrity news for guys. It has media-hyped feuds, pointless awards shows to give Joan Rivers – err, I mean Stuart Scott – something to talk about, prima donnas whose opinions are irrationally sought on all matters. The average sports fan, I contend, spends more time consuming gossip than games.
Look in the mirror the next time you’re watching SportsCenter while a girl friend reads People. I’ve done it. It’s not pretty.
