The Last Word: Le Batard’s Army weaker, dumber than Jan. 6 mob
Wow. Listeners of the Dan Le Batard Show (w/ Stugotz!!!!) are not exactly happy with the blog I wrote about their Dear Leader “declaring war on Philadelphia” a couple of days ago. However, while it initially didn’t get much traction outside of Philly, the show’s social media man retweeted our post, opening us up to their massive national audience of
I’ll be honest, I thought it was pretty cool. It put a little smile on my face. Like I said in the last blog, Le Batard is a total legend, he’s one of the reasons I love sports radio like I do.
However, that moment was short-lived. My expression changed drastically when the show’s army of 40-somethings (and one dude from Pittsburgh?) descended upon the replies.
It went from a wry smile to a shit-eating grin, as nothing drives web traffic much like hate. What made it incredibly hilarious was that the comments were some of the weakest, least effective attempts at hate I’ve ever encountered.
Here’s the original post the Le Batard Show retweeted if you care to take a look:
Oh my god, what a weak showing from these bozos. Seriously, I wasn’t even out to start beef with Le Batard. Sure, I called him a rat, but I call everybody a rat.
As a result, The Le Batard Show is secondary in my mind (an improvement from utterly irrelevant to me). So now, my wrath is aimed at his army of simps that can’t even insult me properly.
Like, Jesus Christ. I saw more intelligence and organization in the Insurrection Day Jan. 6 mob, and that was a collection of the dumbest people in America.
I’ve been insulted more coherently by Serbians using Google translate than the American audience of the Le Batard Show. Some of those Serbs know how to cut to my core.
I was met with many of them saying, “you don’t get the show.” Thank god, as I have no desire to be part of an in-group of grown men that find validation in another grown man’s jokes.
Other people are saying I “fell into his trap.” Meanwhile, I’m the one benefitting from increased traffic to my article? Whose trap is whose?
You also can’t claim I’m saying that save face, as I said exactly that in the original article:
So, that’s that. I’ve won.
