The height of anti-intellectualism

So, I really don't like ESPN much any more (I think they've tried to go to hip hop uberculture; for an example, just listen to Stuart Scott, for thirty seconds). But this morning, I realized how far the insidious anti-intellectual feeling has penetrated popular culture. Stuart Scott called a play "stupid good." What the fuck is that shit? Stupid good? Is that the opposite of smart bad? "Hey dude, that error was smart bad! It's a good thing your pitching was stupid good all night!" I think at some point there will be a counter-culture revolution where a texas leaguer won't be called "sick", it'll be called a texas leaguer.

I also wouldn't mind seeing the end of the sideline reporter. They don't really add anything to the game. "The XYZ manager thinks XYZ is the best team in the league right now." Well no shit! That's some stupid good reporting.
