Mr Birdbrain --
Go back to your scarlet macaws, clearly your area of expertise - if you have one. Jim Miller's and my book on ESPN was No.1 (albeit briefly) on the New York Times bestseller list and received roughly 95 per cent positive reviews. You seem to be angry that we approached the subject of the world's most successful cable network with some seriousness, clearly aching instead to hear sleazy gossip and witness tawdry catfights. Puh-thetic!
