Silence is golden

(never been entirely clear on what an ombudsman does, but this should probably be his job, not mine)

It shouldn't come as any surprise that we've made some half-hearted attempts to get on the SportsGuy's Daily Links page. I mean, we did get that one highly ambiguous shout-out from Eric Neel, but from a marketing standpoint, getting a mention in the land of Simmons would be second only to the time that Billups briefly emerged from the wilds of retirement to bless us with a link.

Now, I've always assumed that recognition was the highest form of flattery. Fuck an imitation; who wants props from someone who can't even come up with something original on their own? But after viewing Monday's installment of the Daily Links, it's the hush-hush that shows you've really made it. Tell me it's not a little suspicious that this photo of Peja heads up this latest batch, atttributed to "some nameless wonder," only two business days after it defines our EuroDigest for the ages. Sure, anyone could find the original source over google, but why's the SportsIntern off doing an image search for amusing pictures of Peja (hardly an NBA player anyone cares about during the off-season) unless someone's following our lead?

I get it now. ESPN can't say our name, can't print our URL, because we're the competition. We get the gentlemanly "nameless wonder," but to actually declare FreeDarko.com to the world would be irresponsible business.

Come on Simmons, show your outsized disciples some love.

Ha! That's both really funny and really irritating. I just fired off a note telling Simmons to stop biting. That Euro post really deserves some credit. I was away from the internet for the weekend, and expected to see your comments section filled with praise when I returned. Instead, not only is there no dick-eating from EMYND, but there are complaints!?!

Have you heard the Mark Blout jam on those links though? Brilliant shit.

that cassell comment was just because i thought it'd be funny if shaun livingston's foot feel off and then sam cassell does that glowing finger thing and reattaches it.

Sorry for the lack of dick-eatery. I've been away from a computer. My dick-dining will commence shortly.
