We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming

A few weeks ago, I launched JakeAppleman.com, my personal website and one-stop-shop for everything me. You should check it out. Included is today’s post, a satirical take on ESPN.com’s removal of a story about LeBron James written by Arash Markazi. I know, I know, that happened weeks ago—months, maybe years in internet time– but it’s still a good time. At least I hope so. Otherwise, I’m in the wrong business.

I would’ve broken the fake story here, but that would have been immoral. A brand reporting and breaking news about itself on one of its own platforms, all while crediting itself. Who does that?

Final word today goes to Wale: “I could change a broad’s life in about an hour / I turn Ducks into Bucks, Luke Ridnour”
