Jason Whitlock Profiled In New York Times

Never did I expect to see the day Jason Whitlock profiled in the New York Times.

Especially after his now infamous three-hour rant against his former employer, The Kansas City Star.

But the FoxSports.com columnist was featured in the paper on Sunday, which has to be a sign of the apocalypse.

For sports media junkies, the profile touches on all the things you have come to known over the years about Whitlock – - from his days playing football at Ball State University to his short lived stops at ESPN and AOL.

The highlight of the profile though was this gem of a line from columnist Dan LeBatard of The Miami Herald:

“I try not to burn bridges, but he napalms them. He’s fundamentally unafraid.”

If that doesn’t sum up Whitlock, I don’t know what does.
