Bill Simmons Is Ready To Rehabilitate Tony Kornheiser's Writing Confidence

Bill Simmons called into The Tony Kornheiser Show Thursday to discuss his public recruitment of the Pardon the Interruption co-host for his new website, Grantland.com.

According to Dan Steinberg (aka “The Cheese Boy”):

“I promised you I would try,” Kornheiser said. “I promised you I would try. And I will try.”

“And I believe you,” Simmons said. “By the way, you don’t have to be just constricted to sports. You could write about the Killing if you want.”

“Love The Killing, but I’m a bad writer,” Kornheiser said. “And I’m not as smart as I used to be.”

“Stop it,” Simmons instructed, and the segment soon ended. So there you have it. They gave each other a pledge – Unheard of, absurd. They gave each other a pledge? Unthinkable.

Report: Goodman leaving Fox to join CBS college hoops team

Citing an unnamed source, The Big Lead reports that noted college basketball reporter Jeff Goodman is planning to leave his spot as lead basketball writer at Fox Sports and join rival CBS Sports. Goodman would not address the rumor, saying only, “I’m under contract at Fox Sports and I love it here.”

The Big Lead notes, “At CBS, Goodman would team with the other college basketball writer who breaks the majority of transfers/hires/fires/news, Gary Parrish. They would form a stronger news-breaking tandem than the (Pat) Forde/(Andy) Katz/(Dana) O’Neil triumvirate at ESPN. I imagine the lure of potential TV-time at CBS is probably an attractive one for Goodman.”
