Dennis Perrin Shoots, Dennis Perrin Scores

Dennis Perrin continues to pump out some righteously clear writing. I particularly recommend this post about the untimely death of Reggie White.

Since my days of fanatic sports fandom are behind me, I had no idea Reggie White had said quite this many unpleasant things. I still care about sports, and feel pity for those people who don't realize they are THE ONLY THING THAT GIVES LIFE MEANING. But I want to spend most of the time I have for sports doing them myself, rather than thinking about other people doing them.

This doesn't mean I scorn those who expend lots of effort thinking about such things. They're probably using their time more productively than someone who (for instance) obsessively tends to a website named "A Tiny Revolution."
