That staple of lazy columnists everywhere, the "picked up pieces" column.
Dan starts off strong, telling us the Bruins let go of Nate Greenberg.... I don't know who he is either.
He follows up with a trivia question that I heard nine months ago on the Notre Dame broadcast. (Which four colleges have graduated both a president and a Super Bowl winning quarterback?)
He then proceeds to flip through the sports news from the past week offering vanilla commentary ("Anybody else tired of Kobe Bryant?" That's the extent of the comment on Kobe.) and unoriginal observations that you could have gotten from a million sites on the internet ("Look for the Celtics to trade that coveted No. 5 pick in the draft.").
String together 15 or so of these (none more than a five sentences, most just a sentence or two) and you've got yourself a column.
