ESPN is introducing their new Page2 writer, Scoop Jackson. Could someone please translate his first paragraph for me:
They asked me to intro self. To take 900 words to explain I.
Well, first off – I is not that important. I am just a writer from Slam, XXL, NBA and Nike who found his way into ESPN's backdoor. Lucked up. Spit a few verbs, convinced 'em that Stephen A. wasn't the only one.
So instead of wasting space on Page 2 ducking my own sic, I figured if I told you some of the things I believe in, that would give you a better idea of what I intend to flip once a week for the Worldwide Leader. Because it ain't where you at; it's where you coming from that matters. Right?
What does sic mean? Ain't it where me at? or I'm at? or are you there? He goes on to talk about A.I:
I believe Allen Iverson is the best player in the game.
I believe Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are better than him.
I don't get it.
Some other interesting Philly thoughts Mr. Scoop has to say:
I believe Santa Claus got booed in Philly for a reason.
I believe if T.O. was white, he'd be a national hero.
I believe what Rush Limbaugh said was true – stupid, but true.
Scoop, huh. Well, he can't be much worse than Stephen A. Smith, that's for sure. But going along with Rush? I don't know, he has lost some clout with me there. I kind of agree with him on the T.O. point. The man is unbelievable.
