JACKO HAS BEEN BUMPED:  Four years later, Bill Simmons finally gets his interview with Barack Obama:
BS: Settle an office debate. Best Wire character of all time?
Obama: It’s got to be Omar, right? I mean, that guy is unbelievable, right?
BS: We might break this down as like a March Madness bracket, and I think he’s going to be the no. 1 seed. [Laughter.] Everyone is in on Omar, it seems like.
Obama: He’s got to be the no. 1 seed. I mean, what a combination. And that was one of the best shows of all time.

    I suppose aging douchebags in backwards baseball caps would be a voting bloc worth courting.

  2. Are you referring to the host or his listeners?

    I've scaled back on how many episodes I listen to -- no interest in Dave Jacoby or Kevin Wildes, but the recent Bob Ryan interview, for example, was a great listen.

  3. Disappointed in the President's conventional pick for Best Wire Character.

    Would have been much more impressed if he'd said Frank Sobotka or Mr. Prezbo. Even Bubbles would have been a less-conventional conventional pick. 

    Imagine he'd said Clay Davis?
