In addition to the Kevin Slaten article discussed below, Jay Mariotti got his ass handed to him in today's Chicago Sun-Times, his place of employment for 17 years. Mariotti quit/resigned/whatever Tuesday night (don't worry, he'll still be making Around the Horn even more painful to watch). His colleagues at the paper appear to be coping with the loss very well.
Sun Times editor Michael Cooke said it best.
'We wish Jay well and will miss him -- not personally, of course -- but in the sense of noticing he is no longer here, at least for a few days,'' Cooke said.
In the words of Mariotti's fellow annoying Chicago media personality Ken "the Hawk" Harrelson: He gawn!!
