Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

My favorite comment this week was an e-mail I got Monday in response to a post in which I announced I was not in the mood to blog.

It was from a famous local radio personality who shall remain nameless, other than that his last name is Ackerman.

He quoted George Costanza, thusly: "You ask me to have lunch, tell me you slept with Elaine, and then say you're not in the mood for details. Now you listen to me. I want details and I want them right now. I don't have a job, I have no place to go. You're not in the mood? Well you get in the mood!"

Speaking of not being in the mood . . . ESPN was nice enough to invite me to a movie screening Thursday night where I would have hung out with John Skipper, one of the most powerful men in sports media, as well as Kelly Ripa.

Then the NFL Network was nice enough to invite me to an event Thursday night where I would have hung out with Steve Bornstein, one of the most powerful men in sports media, as well as Brett Favre.

I politely declined both and instead played softball and drank fermented malt beverages.
