Rayanne, she's a stayin'

New York Times media columnist Bryan Curtis steps up with a great article on terrible locker room sports cliches and the journalists that help generate them.

Frankly, I’m sick of bland, odorless quotes, and I sense that both athlete and reporter are, too. A War on the Locker Room Cliché would end this mutually unsatisfactory relationship.
It's a must read and the timing is fascinating given the debate the last fews days over Berger, the role of the MSM and the reaction of the Barilkoshphere.


  1. thanks for linking the NY times story. your posts are "putting on a clinic" or "hitting on all cylinders" in the blogosphere!

  2. Great article. Thanks as always MF. Can you imagine sports reporting without cliches?
