TMQ's Back

Gregg Easterbrook's "Tuesday Morning Quarterback" column has returned to ESPN.com, after more than two years in exile on NFL.com. The column was killed back in 2003 after Easterbrook posted an item to his then-blog on the New Republic's website in which he appeared to be connecting the money-grubbing of Disney executives with their Jewishness.

I can forgive Gregg for his slipup- he clearly didn't mean any harm and apologized appropriately- but what I can't forgive is just how stale his TMQ act has gotten. I think I chuckled two or three times while reading the 15-page column yesterday. It's just a waste of time considering that Peter King does the same thing much, much better over at SI.com.

And speaking of the King of Coffeenerdness, I happened to be in a Starbucks in King's hometown of Montclair, NJ, a couple of weeks ago. But for some reason it didn't even occur to me to look for him until like the next day. Turned out he was out of town anyway.
