    Re: Mariotti Leaves the Sun Times

    Heh, that's funny he was just on Around the Horn today and just got back from the Olympics. I'm interested to see if he'll be on the show tomorrow.

    I'm sure he'll still be on Around the Horn, despite my wishes. If only we could just get someone to garrote him and Woody Paige simultaneously right before the Showdown, I'd be a happy man.

    I love reading Woody's board though

    I'm sorry, but Woody is, for the most part, incoherent and probably not all there, mentally. I will admit that I can tolerate him more than Jay, and certainly more than Skip Bayless.

    Re: Mariotti Leaves the Sun Times

    What would lead to him leaving that job? Where will he head next?

    No big loss there. As far as annoying people in sports he ranks right behind Rome.

    He said that the newspaper industry is dying, and he doesn't want to die with it. He said that while he was covering the Olympics in China, that most of the journalists there were for websites, not newspapers. He's keeping his gig on Around the Horn, and it wouldn't surprise me if he starts writing for their website. He probably already has something lined up.

    He recently signed an extension. Then he resigns immediately after he gets a free trip to China and the Olympics. Classy.
