Olbermann has a hot blonde 25 year old live in girlfriend name Katy Tur. It took me about 1 min to find this out. Simmons is so incompetent, his efforts at a cheap shot have exposed the fact that Olbermann is doing better with the ladies than he is. Amazing.
The fact is the Simba is holding a losing hand with his Ali article and everyone knows it. Has a single media member defended his position? That means it's open season on him. If Simba gets into a fight with anyone over this, it just calls more attention to his stupid article. I think what pushed his buttons with Olbermann was how completely dismissive he was with Billy. It took him only one sentence to cast aside Simba's entire professional work.
Since Simmons has started to become more of a public figure he's starting to receive the attention and criticisms that he's dished out at others for years. So far, Simba is completely folding under the pressure. His twitter fights with local journalists, radio guys and commentators are a prime example. It's been easy for him to lob grenades at people from behind the ESPN wall that protects him from everything, including user comments on his articles. But out on his own, he's been exposed as a thin-skinned, insecure, whining douche bag.
Good post, n00b. Please post in this thread so we can all figure out if we're enemies with you or not.
