Screamin' A Returns

A few months after his firing from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Stephen A. Smith has returned to the written word, penning the first of what is expected to be a regular column for ESPN the Magazine.

I've done a lot of SAS-bashing around here over the years, but I should say that I once considered Smith a fine newspaper sportswriter, when he was first with the Inquirer. This was before the development of his louder-than-thou TV persona, as well as his annoying habit of writing columns in the Philadelphia paper long after he stopped both living in Philadelphia and paying attention to what was going on there.

I'm not expecting the idiots who frequent the comment sections to much like the first column, in which Smith asks whether the NBA is racist for bringing in lots of European players, before ultimately rejecting the notion.
