    There is a site where you can now reflect upon his musings with friends:

    http://www.sonsofthesportsguy.com/forum/index.php


    If you aren't familiar with his works on ESPN.com, but are a sports/pop culture fan with a sense of humor, this is a great site.

    I wonder if this is a take-off on Sons of Sam Horn?

    Anyway, I love Simmons. Being from Boston I immediately get where he's coming from. I wonder what he'll do now that his "the Red Sox are killing me" schtick is gone?

    Thanks for the link.

    I love reading The Sports Guy. The guy is a pop culture/cheesy-movie encyclopedia.

    However, thank god I don't have to read about the Red Sox for another 4-5 months. For a while, every post was about the Red Sox. Enough already!

    Also, Hoosiers is not a great movie - no matter what he thinks.

    You really think the end of the season will keep Boston sports fans from discussing the Red Sox? Did you see the sports pages here last year - even the Patriots, who are apparently a pretty impressive football team, couldn't bump the Sox down.

    I wish his old Digital Cities columns were archived somewhere, though - those were insanely funny, and he was free to completely rip the media.

    Thanks to everyone that has signed up. Not quite as big as HTF but there has been some pretty lively discussions over a range of topics.

    If you haven't been by to check it out, I would encourage you to stop by and sign up.
