Sports :: Bill Simmons is a Jackass sometimes
  submitted on January 16, 2008, 10:58 PM


Since he apparently doesn't have anything better to talk about, Bill Simmons has a new column out. The topic? Comparing the 1986 World Champion Boston Celtics and the 2007 New England Patriots. The only problem with this column? The Super Bowl for the 2007 season isn't for another two and a half weeks, and the Patriots haven't even earned a spot in the game, let alone won it. So yes, let's compare the greatness of two teams, especially when one hasn't even finished its season yet.

I seem to remember something like this happening a couple years ago. I believe it was when ESPN decided to name that year's USC team the greatest college team of all time. So what happened to the Trojans? Why, they went on to lose to Vince Young in the National Championship game.

Now, I would venture to say that the Patriots are probably more dominating in the NFL than USC was in college football. That being said, Simmons is doing a fantastic job of jinxing them to hell with all these proclamations of greatness when they haven't even won the AFC Championship. Idiot.
