Grantland is interesting

I forget the first time I stumbled across Grantland, a new-ish blog founded by Bill Simmons, of the popular ‘The Sports Guy’ column.  Grantland is a strange  amalgamation of sports coverage and investigative pop culture fare.

Bill Simmons writes this lengthy, comprehensive ode to Eddie Murphy complete with foot notes. Molly Lambert reviews the top ten songs on the Billboard Christian Chart.

Is it weird? Most certainly.

Is it interesting? Yes.

Also, side note, Bill Simmons is the latest member of a group comprised of middle-aged white men who possess an extraordinary amount of racial self awareness for a group of middle -aged white men. This man is also in this group. I would like to meet them someday.
