Originally posted by odessastepsI liked his columns originally, but i think his desire to not move away from the "meta"/"Ur-Reality"/"postmodern" theories have made them hard to read.
That's been my take. I think he just can't admit that his theory never came true (or maybe never was true to begin with). I sort of get how he is like a Pro Wrestling 101 for non-fans and perhaps he should stick to that (his Dead Wrestler bios for Deadspin were what brought him attention in the first place). Actually, Grantland as a whole does a lot better analyzing the past than looking towards the future.
Ok ok, so did they just cut out the whole part where he explains himself in a rational manner, so all we get is: NATTIE: I'm really looking to our romantic fancy one-on-one date tonight for my birthday! [CUT TO TJ SHOWING UP WITH MOM & GOTH SIS] TJ:
