THE SAME SMITH SAGA
See what I did to his name there, clever, aren't I? I am implying that all his articles are the same.
Anyway, It seems I have gotten inside Same Smith's head. The day after I wrote the last article about him he wrote "Garnett Wouldn't Mind Playing Here"
. I was fuming. He was sticking it in my face that he could write all he wanted about Kevin Garnett, and there was nothing I could do about it.
Except dash off another angry email, part of which I share with you:I just have to ask, in regards to this latest rewrite of the same article about
KG you have been writing for years:
Are you seriously getting paid for this?
He wrote back a simply, "yes."
And he's right. He is getting paid to rewrite the same article over and over. And I want that job.
But check out the link above and you will see signs he is weakening,
"There's still a chance, albeit not a strong one, that Kevin Garnett someday could be helping the Bulls win rather than pushing them to a loss, as he did here Saturday night."
Do you see that? He is second guessing himself. "albeit a small one" is not a sentence (fragmented) he would have written a year ago.
But it gets better, fans. His newest article, "Sonics' Mess Could Make Star Available"
starts like this,
"It might be time to let the dream die, if not a heck of a lot of trade columns. But after watching Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves dismantle the Bulls on Saturday night at the United Center, even I'd have to wonder why the Timberwolves would trade Garnett to the Bulls, much less anywhere else."
HAHAHAHAHAHA. I Own you, Same Smith!
I have dashed off another email. We will see how far I can take this before it all comes crashing down into reality.
