BILL SIMMONS PRESENTS Grantland Launching Wenesdady, June 8,

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

Bill's fixation on RedZone seems like another weird generation gap blind spot.

I enjoyed netw3rk's Twitter feed more when it wasn't just self-promotion.

Sure, but I don't get the sense that it's the way all millennials consume the NFL.

So, I just saw an Ringer NBA Show pop up with Bill on their recurring 'Group Chat' show... and it occurred to me that I don't remember the last time that Bill appeared on a show talking basketball with Haley or Juliet, the two basketball ladies of note on the Ringer and Haley seems like the person bumped from the show for Bill. Maybe I'm projecting something here but does Bill just not care to talk basketball with women? I just don't remember the last time I heard him do so and it struck me all the sudden.

Both mentioned within 15 minutes, the Brooklyn pick is a discrete concept they are discussing at length.

What's the word in German for when you are excited to hate listen to the impending PTA episode?

I had to stop and will finish later but Fennessey was somehow doing worse than Bill, in a total Chris Farley Show zone

PTA comes off as surprisingly humble, I think he's mellowed with age a bit

My favorite part of the interview is how audible PTA's deep sighs are.

The legit best part was maybe PTA disclosing that he creates trailers for movies he shows his kids.

I listened to his Best Movies of 2017 podcast just to get “The Florida Project... didn’t really dig it... it bummed me out” and was not disappointed
