Well That Was a Downer

WTF Ashley Fox?!?

It's Wild Card Weekend and I wake up to an article in the Inquirer about Andy Reid being on the verge of death. What, there was nothing else to write about this weekend Ashley?!? How about the actual game!!

Way to be a buzz killer. The weekend is finally here, the Eagles are amazingly in the playoffs, and I get to read lines like this in the sports section...

Brad Childress hears it, and he worries. The labored breathing. The constant throat-clearing. The small coughs, as if he just can't get enough air into his lungs.

Are you kidding me!

Give me stats, give me predictions, get me psyched for tomorrow's game, give me anything but this crap. Sure there is a time and place for articles that focus on stress, obesity, and smoking...just not on Wild Card Weekend, in the SPORTS section!

And people wonder why newspapers are struggling to maintain their readers...

All of a sudden people are worried about Andy's health. A week ago everybody couldn't wait for him to get out of town....sick or healthy, just leave. Now that the Eagles are in the playoffs, it's a different story.
