Did Anyone Die After Latest Pistons Rumor?
Well it seems as if my rumor created quite a stir. Now some of you want to question my journalistic integrity because of it.
For those who missed it there was a rumor circulating that the Pistons were talking trade with the Chicago Bulls. They were rumored to be considering sending Rasheed Wallace to the Bulls for Tyson Chandler and Andres Nocioni.
I made sure you knew it was a rumor and not an impending trade. Well some of you went nuts after I checked with folks later who said the trade rumor is not true.
Now here is what I've been hearing from a number of you the past five months.
We don't like the Detroit newspapers because we have to find out all the Pistons rumors from ESPN or the Denver Post blah blah blah. We just want to hear what people are saying. Blah blah blah.
So I write a fun rumor to discuss among yourselves and yall become the second coming of Lou Grant.
And these are the same people who love Peter Vecsey from the New York Post, although about 85 percent of his stuff is garbage
Let me see. What harm did writing the rumor cause?
Did someone jump off a building?
Did the Pistons shut down?
Did Rasheed Wallace read the blog and run into hiding?
No. None of this happened. What happened is some of you liked the rumored trade and debated it. And some of you did not.
I hardly think society has been altered.
The good news is this web blog is getting read. I know it has been quoted in other web sites, Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski is not thrilled with some of the stuff in here and geeks from around the country have used it to peddle female products and medicine to make you more user friendly to your women.
In the future if some of you are too stupid to differentiate between rumor and fact, then just turn the page.
