RICK REILLY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rick Reilly Makes Horrible Joke About Johnny Manziel, Tesla

Apparently it actually is possible for Rick Reilly to dig himself into an even bigger social media ditch. Two days ago Reilly deviated from his typically normal Twitter personality by equating Kevin Durant’s joining the Golden State Warriors to “giving Kate Upton a 3rd breast.” Adding Kevin Durant to a Warriors team that already had Curry + Thompson is like giving Kate Upton...

Did Lee Judge go to Rick Reilly’s school of self-plagiarism?

Many sportswriters make the joke about copying and pasting what they wrote last year, but aside from Rick Reilly, not many have actually done it. It looks like we can add Kansas City Star political cartoonist and columnist Lee Judge to that list, though, and he appears to have done so in a particularly blatant way. Here’s Royals Review’s screencap of a May 27, 2015 Judge column...

Rick Reilly returning to Sports Illustrated for March issue feature

It’s a shame there’s a whole generation of sports fans who only know ESPN Rick Reilly.

Between the multiple instances of self-plagerizing, shoddy fact-checking, awkward columns that missed the mark...

Going out in style: Rick Reilly gets personal in final column; tributes from Peyton, Agassi, and more

As far as being alive to see your own funeral, Rick Reilly probably did the right thing in deciding to give up sportswriting. His farewell column on ESPN.com also included a special package with a who’s who in sports picking his favorite columns. Glad to see there was a nice picture with Reilly and his good friend (and mine), Gene Wojciechowski. In the friends department, they...

WATCH: Katie Nolan eviscerates Rick Reilly on 'Crowd Goes Wild'

During Media Day on Tuesday, Rick Reilly made a seemingly innocuous comment about Crowd Goes Wild host Regis Philbin, calling him "the little guy in the makeup." He also mistook Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas for Gabby Giffords in one of the more hysterical moments of the day, but that's besides the point. Although Reilly was trying to be funny, it sure did seem like the first meaningful...
