BILL SIMMONS
 
Current Status: Master of the Sports Guy universe



Changing The Game By: Bringing his humor-infused, frat-house brand of sports talk to iTunes, Twitter and any new medium that will have him. Simmons, known on the web as “The Sports Guy,” rejects the “no cheering from the press box” school of sports journalism and blurs the line between writer and fan. Armed with an irreverent tone, an everyman's point of view and a vast knowledge of sports and pop culture, Simmons established himself on the web in the ’90s (before it was cool) by landing a column at ESPN.com, where he now anchors the opinion section of the biggest sports site on the net. Simmons expanded his empire in 2007 by launching “The B.S. Report,” a podcast that, like his writing, relies heavily on movie and music references, cultural analogies, and analysis from his college buddies. His daily tweets have over 800,000 followers.



Tweeted This: “More painful to watch this season: Kurt Warner or every Entourage scene with Turtle?”
