So I was reading Bill Simmons' latest offering yesterday afternoon when I noticed two things:
Chad Johnson took over as Editor-in-Chief of ESPN The Magazine for our Revenge of the Jocks issue
Or at least I saw some variation of that on the Simmons' page.
2. ESPN The Magazine has an e-mail address at Gmail. (firstname.lastname@example.org) I found this odd because when I was doing the Master's Live-Blog Live-Blog and traded a couple e-mails with ESPN's Jason Sobel (Sorry, I'll stop name-dropping.) he had an addy @espn.com. What's up wth that?
Anyway, seeing an actual e-mail for an ESPN person, I decided to e-mail a couple jokes. Something along the lines of:
"Hey, since Chad Johnson is editing the magazine this week is he going to threaten not to publish it and then have it show up in my mail box on schedule?" And "Is the entire issue going to be about Chad Johnson?"
Ha ha! Man I'm funny. The point is, nobody e-mailed me back. Maybe it's because my jokes sucked, but come on. I'm Cousins of Ron Mexico. A brother can't get a reply?
Then again, maybe the e-mail went directly to Ocho Cinco. I hope I didn't offend him. He might send Chris Henry after me. Shit.
