As many of you know, Mike Francesa, King Blowhard of WFAN, joined my list of "Big Fat Idiots" this past week with his infantile rantings against the Red Sox and Jacoby Ellsbury in particular. Over the past few years, I've done that with media types I'm not particularly fond of, whether or not they were indeed "big" or "fat." (But were, of course, idiots.) We kicked it off in August of 2006 with that Yankee shill Michael Kay. So I got to thinking, how many times have I done that? Here is the Big Fat Idiots Hall of Fame, in reverse order, with links to each one:
Mike Francesa: April 27, 2009
Filip Bondy: January 14, 2009
Michael Savage: July 21, 2008
Omar Minaya: June 17, 2008
Wallace Matthews: April 30, 2008
Darrell Issa: April 3, 2008
Adam Jasinski: February 17, 2008
Nick Saban: November 23, 2007
Roger Clemens: May 31, 2007
Rosie O'Donnell: April 1, 2007
Albert Pujols: October 15, 2006
Tim McCarver: August 19, 2006
Michael Kay: August 5, 2006
So as you can see we have quite the list here. (Francesa was Lucky 13.) Lord knows I could write one a day, as their is no shortage of Big Fat Idiots out there. But we keep it special here, and add someone when they truly merit it. You never know when one will pop up here.
Number 14 is on the way. It's just a matter of time.
