The story of ESPN reporter Britt McHenry is not going away. The video (watch it here ICYMI) of her berating a tow company employee landed on all the homepages.

Bryant has only played two Major League games and already he’s been over-analyzed, meta-analyzed…and there’s been meta-analysis of his meta-analysis.Follow paulmbanks
Swearing in a professional setting is kind of like putting wasabi on your food or typing in the ALL CAPS font to convey that you’re YELLING! It’s cool to do it once in awhile, and when you do, you do it sparingly. A little context here first this was at the very tail end of a NBA Playoffs media conference call that lasted about 90-100 minutes or so.
And because it was TNT’s Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith who were featured; it was extremely informative and entertaining. Barkley was especially interesting and captivating.Follow paulmbanks
