White Sox and Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf shreds Jay Mariotti

After years of taking written abuse from former Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti (who is being charged with felony domestic assault), White Sox and Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf took the opportunity recently to share how he really feels about Mariotti.

Listen to this (hat tip to SPORTSbyBROOKS.com):

Great word choice by Reinsdorf. (By the way, the definition of “pissant” is: a person or thing of no value or consequence; a despicable person or thing.)

It’s clichéd to say, but I’ll say it anyway: What goes around comes around. Mariotti made a living off of making personal attacks on the people he covered and now he’s being shredded in the media because of this domestic assault charge.

As Johnny Cash once famously sang, “Sooner or later God’ll cut you down.”

Jay Mariotti arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse

Per the L.A. Times:

LAPD sources said Mariotti allegedly got into an argument with his girlfriend at a club in Santa Monica, and they were observed exchanging harsh words just before getting in a car to leave. Mariotti got angry after he believed his girlfriend had been flirting with another man, police sources said.

The argument continued at the couple’s apartment near Venice where Mariotti allegedly pushed and shoved the woman. During the altercation, Mariotti grabbed her arm, leaving marks, the sources said.

Police were called to the apartment and found his girlfriend, who has not been identified, with cuts and bruises.

SPORTSbyBROOKS has a long archive of Mariotti’s history of decrying domestic violence.

Blogging the Bloggers: Thursday

SPORTSbyBROOKS has the story of how a hot high school athletic trainer, Hope Jacoby (right), had an affair with one of the students at the school. Is it just me, or is this happening more and more? (And there’s definitely a double standard based on the sex of the offender, right?)

CUZOOGLE had a great idea — to take every team in the NBA and assign a picture of a woman to them based on their level of hotness. (Get it? The Lakers are hot, Wizards…not so much.) Hilarity ensues.
