I am not a Seahawks fan.  I am a Patriots fan who lives near, and works in, Seattle.  I want the Patriots to play the Seahawks in the Super Bowl and crush them.

But I absolutely love Marshawn Lynch's handling of the news media.  I could do without his crotch-grabbing, but newsflash to the media: almost everyone I've heard complain about Lynch's handling of the media are in professional media.  You (well, and the NFL) are  the only people who have a problem with this.  The rest of us mostly think it's just fine.

I gave up on most sports journalism a long time ago.  Unless there's a really big story -- which few sports journalists are equipped to handle anyway -- sports journalism tends to be tediously uninteresting at best.  It's the same old story day after day, week after week.  I love watching my teams play, but I don't want to hear about how Lynch "feels" about his great touchdown run.  I'm satisfied to let the touchdown (and his crotch grab) speak for itself.

And don't even get me started on the train wrecks that occur when folks like Bob Costas and Christine Brennan try to cover "issues" in sports, like offensive team names and guns.  They spread lies and ignorance and act like everyone should care what they think.

Just give me the scores and show me the big plays.  That's all I want from you.  And you're not very good at anything else, anyway.

So sports journalists, get over yourselves.  Most of us have gotten over you already. G+
