Douchebag of the Year

Yes it's early in the year to be truly declaring the douchebag of the year already, but two things occurred to me.
  1. I haven't called someone a douchebag in a while.
  2. Colin Cowherd deserves the all-out wrath from every blog out there.
Deadspin reported yesterday about what amounted to a DNS attack on the sports blog, The Big Lead (I'd link to it, but at this moment it is still down). Cowherd essentially called for the attack to happen. The Deadspin article explains what a DNS attack is a little more, but it basically crashes the targeted site.

Wow, just wow. I realize Cowherd was a sniveling, insecure asshole, who rips off and plagiarizes sports blogs, but this is a whole new low for him. If any of you listen to Cowherd or ESPN Radio for that matter, we here at TMS urge you to boycott them immediately. It is time for ESPN to realize they aren't the only thing that matters and to rid themselves of cockweasels like Cowherd once and for all. Of course the Worldwide Leader divorced credibility for entertainment value a long time ago.
