Bill Simmons Takes A Shot At Emmitt Smith During His Marathon Chat (Updated: ESPN Takes It Down)

If you weren’t aware Bill Simmons is “Chatting for Charity” today in what will end up being a 6-hour event to raise money for the Jimmy V Foundation. Right in the beginning of the chat came this exchange…..

Scott (Chicago, IL): You should have started the chat at 9:00 am, because you would have, easily, broken the record, seeing how everyone who is in this chat is at work, and would be on it til 5:00 with you. What are you going to do at 5:00 when everyone leaves work? I love you, but I don’t love you enough to stay late at work just to chat about inane things going on in the world!

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (12:18 PM ET ) We thought about this, but 9:00 am equals 6:00am West Coast time, and I am incoherent when it’s that early. I would have been giving answers like Emmitt Smith.


Zing! Don’t know how long until they take it down so I took that screen shot for you. It is still up after an hour and a half of chatting, so maybe ESPN feels the same way we all do about Emmitt. I’m blowed away that they do.

Update #2- Here we go again!

Emmitt Smith: Would you agree that the NFC West is one of the worst conferences in the NFC? You’re gonna smash the chat record. Don’t quit, don’t even quit.

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (1:20 PM ET ) I think the NFC West is going through a rice of passage right now, so you can’t make it an escape goat.


That one might be inside enough that ESPN won’t change it.
