I got a flood of email yesterday -- naturally, about the time i was flying from Indy to New York -- asking what I'd done to piss off Buzz Bissinger. Bissinger called me out as "unfair" along with Firejoemorgan. My initial reaction is "huh?"

There are two possibilities -- the first is that he didn't like my coverage of his meltdown on Costas Now. The other is that he didn't like how I dealt with him during an interview I did with him about a year ago regarding his NY Times article regarding Kerry Wood and pitch counts. I think the interview was fair. Maybe he's mixing me up with Boog Sciambi.

I don't think I was unfair in either place. I even put the interview up at BPR so that people could hear it and make up their own mind. I honestly have no idea what Buzz is talking about here, but I know he knows how to reach me if he wants to discuss it.

If Buzz would quit whining and use that time to research 'facts' for his work, he wouldn't have to be so damned defensive all the time.

From reading Buzz's interview at Deadspin, it's obvious that he is extremely thin skinned. I mean, he remembers all his book reviewers by name--WTF?

So when you wrote, back in May, that "he's he's an asshat of epic proportions," he's probably reacting to that now.

Yeah, calling a guy an "asshat" will raise some hackles. Then again, if the shoe fits...

You mean, if the hat fits?

I'm currently wearing an asshat and it feels I have no idea why it's such a big deal to be called one.

An asshat was the defining prop in my all-time favorite Groundlings piece. But what's not to like about a skit that has the line "Bob Keester--he's an ass"? The other party guests were none too pleased when he sneezed on the salad.
