Aren’t we all glad that has started more regional coverage by creating satellites like ESPN Los Angeles and ESPN Dallas (soon to come – ESPN Sheboygan!)? Because without their commitment to reporting exactly what their regions desire, we never would have known that the White Sox’ resident hobbit, Brent Lillibridge, stood in a midnight line to purchase the new Halo video game last night.

“Most important night of the year Halo coming out at 12 tonight and yes I’m in a line to get it… Jokes please,” Lillibridge tweeted at approximately 11 p.m. (CT) Monday.

Great. That’s just great. Can we now get on to more pressing matters? Like, anything else, really. Did Tony Larussa shift his manly parts in the fifth inning over the weekend? Report on that.

The LeBron look-at-me choreographed announcement special and the annual Favre offseason fellatio fest are an insult to anyone who wants news that actually affects the teams and leagues that they follow.
