I Know You Are, But What Am I ?

'But it's one thing if somebody just sets up a blog from their mother's basement in Albuquerque and they are who they are, and they're a pathetic get-a-life loser, but now that pathetic get-a-life loser can piggyback onto someone who actually has some level of professional accountability and they can be comment No. 17 on Dan Le Batard's column or Bernie Miklasz' column in St. Louis. That, in most cases, grants a forum to somebody who has no particular insight or responsibility. Most of it is a combination of ignorance or invective.'' Bob Costas

Sorry Bob, didn't know your PhD in Punditry was so sensitive to the great unwashed with a modem and an opinion...

Perhaps what you object to is the way commentators can hide their true experience level? Sound authoritative on a subject? Obscure their true credentials or identity?

[Costas] Doctored his college radio highlight tape to make himself sound older, which led to a job at KMOX-AM in St. Louis, broadcasting ABA basketball.

Yep. That must be it.

You talkin to me Costas? I resemble that remark...
