"Not the best [Scoop column] that ever was necessarily."

"Is he, Roger Federer, the Michael Jordan of tennis? The Muhammad Ali? The Babe Ruth? The Wayne Gretzky? The Jim Brown? The Lance Armstrong? The Tiger Woods?"

More wild hyperbole from a column devoted to Federer's joining of the pantheon of all-time greats. Fair enough. No disagreement here. But not one mention of his 2-6 record against Nadal, the number two player in the world?

Who dominated Jordan that much? Ali? Ruth? Gretzky? Brown? Armstrong? Has Tiger's main rival beaten him 75% of the time head-to-head? How do you write an entire article about Federer's dominance without mentioning his nemesis Nadal's name?

Dear anon,

I happen to believe that Scoop's prose style is far, far more serious than the economy, Iraq, North Korean and Iranian nukes, and genocide in Darfur.

wow ... its a joke ... get over yourself.

P.S. "With all the issues in our country," I hope you aren't wasting a second watching sports, movies, or tv (other than CSPAN, of course). And don't dare let me catch you telling a joke. Ever.
