However, in this case, Olbermann took an unprovoked shot. Bill might have been juvenile is his response about the cats and living alone, but what would you guys have done? Nothing in order to not give KO any more attention, or would you have tried to fight back? I just think SImmons felt he was attacked unnecessarily and went on the offensive and now in this case he realizes (probably with some "help" from his bosses) that enough is enough.
There Angus, another post NOT about Super Bowl 40.
I think I can say with nearly 100% certainty that if I was in Simba's situation, I would ignore the guy. But then, I generally don't tend to care about others opinions of myself, specifically others who have never met me. Billy, on the other hand, has tried earnestly to paint himself as a cool guy, and I think wants more than anything to be considered hip.
As for Olbermann taking an unprovoked shot, I remember reading a quote by someone once: "You're a public figure. When you screw up, people are going to write about it. Get over yourself." If only the person who'd said that could somehow have let Bill in on this nugget of information....
