RADIO TALKER STEVE ST. JOHN LAUGHS LAST!!! NEW KANSAS CITY CHIEFS COACH ANDY RIED GIVES ALL OF 810 A BIG HUG!!!
It turns out that Kansas City Chiefs Coach Andy Reid is a hugger.
For now, that's not such a bad thing.
In the aftermath of the first Kansas City Chiefs controversy over hugging it seems that Steve St. John has the last laugh on a seemingly jealous and petty Jason Whitlock and some other newsies like Greg Hall who made a big deal about how hugging might impact journalistic integrity.
Let's settle this debate . . .
SPORTS REPORTING IS NOT JOURNALISM BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT PROBLEMS THAN MERE GAMES!!!
Exception: There are a few instances where sports reporting reflects a broader reality than box scores and meaningless stats. Example: Jovan Belcher painting Arrowhead Parking lot with his brains after he killed his girlfriend proved to be important because it was a prelude to the Great American Gun Debate and provided the century mark for Kansas City homicides.
Still . . . Sports is entertaining and grown men hugging at the start of a new relationship should be celebrated given that TKC and most dudes in their 30s have pretty much given up on intimacy in favor of X-box.
So, Steve St. John shows off his access which is really the only currency in Kansas City sports reporting given that mainstream sports newsies aren't allowed to criticize.
