So sports journalism is an intriguing field. Too many sports journalists think they have to be a) overly technical or b) overly goofy, while in reality a good sports journalist should be technical and goofy at the same time.
And yes, that is wishful thinking.
I must admit, though, that Greg Urbano can pull off the overly goofy thing while still sounding moderately adequate. I offer for evidence this link. It made me laugh, which is hard to do.
Long live equivocation!
