D-Wil is At It Again……

In Uncategorized on May 10, 2009 at 3:45 pm

 

I’ve been slacking a lil on my D-Wil reading lately, mainly because.

A. Basketball doesn’t intrigue me like it used to,

B. Baseball damn near doesn’t interest me at all anymore

C. They’re  the only major sports in Season right now  (I love Hockey too, you go tell ESPN its major tho)

 So I’ve stayed away from SOMM recently along with the insightful, honest, and abrasive to some (including me sometimes) writings that go on over there.

I do have their webpage bookmarked on my phone however,  and while I was waiting for the Dopest Ethiopian (literally) to bring me my food  I was reminded why I think D-Wil is one of the better writers out there, especially on matters concerning sports.

Being that yesterdays  Nuggets vs Mavs game was the opening act to what would become a glourious Penguins day for me, DWil’s article: 

Denver-Dallas: A Bennett Salvatore-Led Crew Does in the Mavs Again – and ESPN ’s “Doublethink” and “Crimestop” 

Caught my attention immediately, and proceeded to espouse truth throughout. 

And a  second recent article 

The Other Side of hCG and Manny Ramirez 

Gives a very enlightened, almost never traveled path, view on the latest Major League Slugger “busted” for using steroi…  errrr performance enhancing drugs 

 Yes, while they are sometimes rooted in irrefutable logic, his views on racial matters can be disconcerting. 

And

No I don’t like the fact he has forced me to put more thought in the influence gambling has on sports.

But with all the power vested in my subjectivity, I would say it’s a fact the man writes his ass off.

If you’re a fan of Sports, Good Writing, or both, you should go check him out.

  1. I saw the link and said WTF is this?! Am I about to get slammed, misconstrued, subjected to “newspeak,” what?!

    All I can say is thank you.

    People might not agree with me but I’d like to believe that some part of everything I write resonates with people on a very deep level – and that is all I can ask for.

  2. What up fam.

    I’m trying hard to come cup up with provocative titles over here lol

    De Nada and anytime on the link, I really want some of my people to first understand that ESPN is a sports monolith(what competition?) that often creates and dictates their frame thought on sports issues.

    Then

    I would like them to read alternative views to the mainstream such as yours, so as to attain a fair balance and become informed concurrently

    After All

    We are little more than the ideas we have been exposed to…..

    • Very true…. the Big Subliminal is killing me with this defense of the ref at the end of the Denver-Dallas game…. ish is disgusting… just added the latest on the site….

      Also, added you to our Blogroll!

  3. Bout to go check it now.

    Good looking out for real on the br add, definitely appreciated
