Jul 22 2014THE HYPE MACHINE
Sometimes you just have to laugh. The Hype Machine, that's ESPN, is out of control and there's no coming back. First there's our own Johnny Football, who sold more NFL jerseys than any player (!?) over the past three months. BTW Johnny was quiet last weekend, therefore no story. There are only three teams in NFL camps right now, so the hype turns to Sammy Watkins. He's the rookie WR for Buffalo, and HE WAS INCREDIBLE...in his first practice. This is the Bills, whose playoff drought is longer than the Browns. Finally, man of God Tony Dungy WOULDN'T WANT MICHAEL SAM ON HIS TEAM. Oh no, negatives comments about the gay guy. By the way, Dungy's response was quite well thought out, whether you agree or not. But for ESPN, it really doesn't matter.
