John Bois of Fanhouse is in the midst of previewing every team using videos. In his latest entry, he compares the Tampa Bay Rays to the greatest band. EV. ER. Pearl Jam.
That might have just been one of the coolest things I have ever seen, even with all the jokes at the Rays expense. This reminds of the when I stopped respecting Bill Simmons. Simmons would always sing the praises of Pearl Jam until he started giving up on them. He even said he wasn’t excited about the release of their latest album. As soon as he heard how good it was, he was back-peddling faster than drunk that just realized they called Mike Tyson a fucktard. Simmons loyalties only go so far as the team/band is better than everybody else. Seriously, when was the last time he wrote a Boston Bruins column? He is not a Bruins fan any longer. Might it have something to do with their recent lack of success? And I promise you, he will be all over their bandwagon once again if they make a run in the playoffs.
