If you remember recent history, the reason ESPN fired Bill Simmons was because he wouldn’t “Heel! Roll over! Play dead!” like his bosses thought “proper” employees should do.
Is it possible Bill will mellow with age, curb his enthusiasm and fade into a more corporate life? Sure … but I just don’t see it. I’m 20 years older than Bill, and I see a similarity that makes me believe he will get even more irascible on his way to becoming a true curmudgeon.
You can do it, Bill!
