I believe this is the first piece of new Bill Simmons content since ESPN's announcement last week…

Most fun I've had doing anything on camera with @BillSimmons, @ChrisConnelly, and other dudes named Chris:

Which of the 4 Chrises will rule Hollywood? IMO: Chris Evans > Chris Pratt > Chris Pine > Chris Hemsworth…

Sporting Emotions at the Highest Pitch — Editor's note: With the U.S. soccer team playing a qualifier in Mexico City Tuesday, we thought we'd rerun this Simmons column from four years ago, when he made his first trip to Estadio Azteca for a U.S.-Mexico qualifier with similar stakes. This column originally ran on August 17, 2009.

I like watching Kyrgios - he's like one of those crazy/unpredictable people on Hollywood Boulevard, only if they were in the U.S. Open.

Shelley Smith was one of my favorite ESPN colleagues. Always loved running into her. Nice to turn a TV on & see her doing her thing again.

And Chicago at 22-1 seems a tad high in a weak East given that they are the logical Carmelo trade destination come December.

OKC is +850, Clips 12-1, Houston 22-1.. Pelicans are somewhere in that mix with those 3 as 2nd-tier contenders. Davis is too good.

Sep 01, 2015

NBA title odds are out of whack. Pelicans at 45-1 is way too high. Better coach, Davis as possible MVP, 23 mill in expirings to trade.

I wonder if this was blaring in the NFL offices today. What up Heather Thomas and Markie Post!

Sep 01, 2015

Interesting timing that today is the day the NFL's PR chief decided to leave...…

PS: Goodell's out is "I wouldn't have handled this so poorly if the people underneath me didn't fail me." Easily leakable to media cronies.

Sep 01, 2015

My Deflategate prediction: Brady gets off, NFL vows appeal, Goodell slowly distances himself (makes Pash/Vincent fall guys), appeal dropped.

Sep 01, 2015

I can't believe the NFL hasn't figured out a way to postpone the Deflategate decision until Friday night of Labor Day Weekend.
