"Considering the history, this just doesn't seem appropriate: Mike Danton is living with his coach at Saint Mary's University."Just pointing this out probably gives it more attention than it is worth. One riposte is that point out David Frost is not deserving of being placed under the heading "coach," so the joke falls on its face right there. This also comes after a real side-splitter about how the NHL couldn't give more than $100,000 to Haitian earthquake relief because "it had already donated millions to another natural disaster: The Phoenix Coyotes."
That's where you want to grab someone by the lapels and say, "Really? Thousands of people died!" The upshot is cheap-joke-making cynics such as that are on the way out in the sportswriting game. They still have the biggest bullhorn, but it won't be that way much longer.
