Owtch! That's GOTTA Hurt.

From a statement by the Chicago Sun-Times Editor-in-Chief, Michael Cooke, regarding the resignation of the execrable Jay Mariotti from their sports section:

The Chicago Sun-Times had the best sports section in the city before Jay Mariotti came to town -- that's why he signed up with us -- and his departure does not change that.  We wish Jay well and will miss him -- not personally, of course -- but in the sense of noticing he is no longer here, at least for a few days.

Wee-owtchy-owtchy-ow-wow.  (via)

1 Did they really say that? Must have been an extremely acrimonious breakup. Sheesh.

2 So it seems.  To be fair, Mariotti is easily the most annoying reporter/hack I've ever seen, so if anything the Sun-Times may very well be understating the case.  It wouldn't surprise me to find out they threw parties when he resigned.
