Scoop Jackson writes awesome editorials.
Scratch that, they're tremendous. He's not hiding being lazy by over-using dramatic line breaks throughout his article. Quite the contrary.

The shame of it is that I actually enjoy Scoop quite a bit when ESPN has him on for commentaries, i.e. segments on Cold Pizza. His writing also isn't all that awful, he just...I don't know, needs to have something installed on his keyboard that only allows him to press "enter" once every minute.
