Contributing to the Sports News Landscape, Whether You Like It or Not

TheBigLead.com is one of my favorite sports sites. So imagine my surprise when I was watching PTI on Friday and saw Wilbon and Kornheiser discussing a personal ad placed on Craig's List by a baseball player looking for a little bit of morning delight. Hmmmmmm? I wonder where they got that story from. The Big Lead, that's who! Here's the fruit of their uncredited labor.



The Big Lead is crying a river about this, but I also have a bone to pick with PTI. On the very next segment, Mike and Tony reveal their thorough understanding of "making it rain" and Pacman Jones' failure to understand strip club etiquette. Now how do you think Mike and Tony became so learned about the rain. Me, of course! Well, maybe. My post was linked on Friday in TBL's Roundup. It seems to me that if the PTI producers could lift from one post, they would happily plunder the whole site. There were no developments in the Pacman Jones story on Friday, and certainly no guides to "making it rain" coming off the ESPN wire. What do you think?



They better be glad PTI is my favorite ESPN show. Plus, it's funny to hear Tony say "make it rain over and over again. If I'm responsible for that, I'll gladly take the credit.

No doubt those fools jack stories... but I thought the whole "make it rain" thing was now mainstream now, no? I guess only among some folks.

I have no doubt Tony was already well versed in the area of "Making it Rain" prior to any ESPN blog-theft on the issue.

I agree it's probably coincidence. Just wishful thinking on my part...

Still they stole Big Lead's story.
