Michael Wilbon Says He Uses The Word ******, But Whites Can’t

I appreciate Wilbon’s honesty and I hope there isn’t a fake apology in his future. While on PTI, he defended Matt Barnes’ tweet saying he wouldn’t protect these niggas (his teammates) anymore. @RealMikeWilbon "I, like many others, use the n-word all day and every day so I have no problem with it…" Really @espn ? #uhavetobekidding — JLM (@jlm71) November 14,...

Michael Wilbon wore a Northwestern jersey to the Northwestern-Cal game.

The age-old argument about whether men should wear the jerseys of the teams they support reared its ugly head again at the Northwestern-Cal game, and in the ugliest way possible. Not only is the guy in the picture below wearing a Northwestern jersey, he went the extra mile and had it customized with his name on it. The gentleman in question: ESPN's most unapologetic Northwestern...

Michael Wilbon wears custom Wilbon jersey at Northwestern-Cal game

ESPN’s Michael Wilbon showed up to the Northwestern-Cal game on Saturday night to watch his alma mater play.  Wilbon was tough to miss because he was wearing a custom Northwestern “Wilbon” jersey.  I’m sure most would consider this to be a faux pas but when you’re Michael Wilbon, I’m guessing you don’t care what people think about you wearing a jersey with your own...

Michael Wilbon Issues Apology

Michael Wilbon stirred up the sporting world, especially the D.C. sporting world earlier in the week with comments he made disparaging the D.C. "sports scene".

The Michael Wilbon, Dan Steinberg Beef And Why D.C. Does Suck As A “Sports Town”

Michael Wilbon is currently in the midst of a mud-slinging beef with another DC-area writer Dan Steinberg. Read all about it (with some apparent biases) here. I can sum this whole thing up in on sentence. Wilbon said D.C. is a “terrible” sports town, while Steinberg disagrees. Magary (at Deadspin) finds Wilbon to generally act like a smug prick to the common man. I don’t personally...
