    Obviously, this Jim Caple article is satire. :)

    [BTW--if you can't figure out it's satire, check out the names of the people being quoted. ;) ]

    Average read. He mostly focuses on soccer. I thought it was moderatly entertaining that he used town names to fabricate people names (Quincy Somerville).

    "You know, there are infants who were born 18 days ago who don't know what it's like to see a Boston team win a championship in their lifetime,"


    not bad, it took me a couple of secs to get it though

    I swear, has Jim Caple ever written anything entertaining, let alone insightful, in his life? Every column is "I hate the Yankees, but I secretly have a crush on them, I wish every day of the year had a Red Sox/Yankees game, Boston is really good but they annoy me, baseball baseball baseball, Red Sox/Yankees, Yankees/Red Sox, George Steinbrenner, Derek Jeter, A-ROD! Oh yeah, and Barry Bonds." All wrapped in the veneer of parody so transparent and infantile you wouldn't put it past a third grader to write it, and sarcasm so cutting I think you'd have a hard time using it to pop a balloon. And every other column is either an imagined scenario written like he was an aspiring scribe for a comedy on the CW network, or an "up is down, down is up" column designed to illustrate a point so obvious that even the lobotomized were aware of it, in this case that Boston sports teams are really good right now. Caple SUCKS.
