Who am I? Who cares? Good questions. It's my site, so I'm going dig in once in a awhile by telling you more about who I am - via a "Stuff I Like" series. Nothing too serious, just exploring the micro-niche that resides at the base of all of our lives. Potshots encouraged in the comments.
We live in a "hot take" society. Fox News. MSNBC. ESPN. It's not enough to report these days, you have to have a "hot take" - a polarizing, all or nothing opinion about someone that will cut through the noise and cause people to pay attention.
Balanced view? Get out - you don't get ratings. Some of you would say that I'm as guilty of a hot take as anyone with this blog. You're right - I'm a product of my environment...
That's why I'm a fan of Ryen Russillo, a radio show host on ESPN. In a world (said in my best movie trailer voice) where you have to be like Skip Bayless or Stephen A. Smith to be noticed, Russillo is a voice of reason and a bit of an everyman. Check out the two clips below. One of the most normal guys you'll ever hear, a great writer and a guy that feels like someone you'd love to be friends with (click through below to see videos and some great writing as well).
