Mikey Miss vs. Bayless

I'm almost a week late with this, but Mike Missanelli seems to have found a niche-within-a-niche on his radio show: defend the honor of Philly, with maximum victim-mongering, while going toe-to-toe with a national guy who's a loathsome douchebag.

Last month it was Colin Cowherd, now it's Skip Bayless, probably the only ESPN employee more hateable than Cowherd. Listen here; again, as with the Cowherd version they're both wrong.

Yes, Skip is talking out his ass. But is the Philly fan reputation completely unearned? Of course not. It comes largely not from national media figures telling the Santa Claus story, but rather from local idiots who know Philly's reputation, and like it, and feel the need to live up to the ideal of being a violent drunken buffoon.
