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.
