No, Tony, They Don't Really Like You.

Our friends at had this little piece on our 2008 FotY winner Tony Kornheiser that I wanted to share with you.

Look, I'm not one to kick someone when they're down, and Tony Kornheiser has certainly received his share of criticism, but this quote from his latest appearance "On The DL" just cracked me up....

And us too...

“I am absolutely gratified and buoyed by the street reaction that I have gotten where people say to me ‘we really liked your work, we’re really going to miss you.’ Total strangers, people I don’t know, seem to have responded very well to what I did on Monday Night Football. That thrills me. I didn’t expect that.

Well, Tony, this is what happens when you run into crackheads on the street.

Actually, as we mentioned previously on the site, we are going to miss you. You gave us sooooo many things to post on we will have to work harder now.

“You know, I thought that critically I was crushed, and internally, maybe, at ESPN there were a lot of people who didn’t like me -- I mean, I don’t know that, but I sense that every once in a while -- but I think there are just people who don’t like me. But the average guy on the street, at least the one who wants to talk to me, is so kind in what they’ve said and I’m very grateful for that.”

The average guy on the street isn't going to walk up and call you a colossal fucktard and beat the living shit out of you. The average guy is thinking that, but the average guy will not act upon it. And you should be very grateful for that!

And it is a rule here on that we must end any TK posting with...

Tony, we will miss the wart on the ass of humanity that you are.
