Rick Reilly Writes Something Less Than Tolerable

The Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers are the exact same team.

Consider:

“Both teams have no cheerleaders.” Okay. Okay.

“Both teams wear yellow pants.” Now you’re starting to lose me.

“And finally, you have to pull a hammy to find a way to hate either team.” That’s funny. I can think of at least one…

To clarify, I used to enjoy Rick Reilly’s writing. His “Life of Reilly” article in Sports Illustrated was the only thing I looked forward to reading every week. I had some of them hung up in my room.

But now, he speaks in nothing but cliches. He’s completely obsessed with himself–take a look at ESPN’s Life of Reilly page, specifically the article titles on the slide show. “Rick Reilly.” And he recycles content.

Also, his paragraphs are really short.

Like this short.
