The Bill Simmons devotees among you may remember that in last weeks football column, he made the following joke:

LIONS (-3.5) over Redskins
The Lions are officially my gambling nemesis. I give up. By the way, if you would like to be a plaintiff in the class action suit by fantasy football owners against Clinton Portis, check out sueclintonportis.com for details.
Had I not been reading a printed copy of the column on the subway, Id probably have clicked the link, since I indeed have Portis on my fantasy team and hes screwed me many times this season. But alas, the link was dead, and in the next graf Simmons joked,
(Note: To everyone who clicked on that www.sueclintonportis.com link ... I mean, you must feel pretty dumb right now? Do you have anything to say for yourself?)
I emphasis that the link WAS dead, because (of course) an enterprising Sports Guy fan bought the domain name, and has turned SueClintonPortis.com into a Cult-of-Bill analysis blog. Great stuff so far- sort of doing for ESPN.com what AdNags does for the New York Times.
