Today we are launching a weekly feature derived from complicated algorithms, a rigorous scientific formula and, occasionally, a blogger’s mood swings: BlogPost’s “Comment of the Week.”
The first winner commented on Melissa Bell’s post Friday about how New York Times columnist David Brooks may have flubbed his column on New York Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin. This commenter got creative and won in part for putting his response in the form of a limerick. (Brooks’s column said that the biggest anomaly about Lin is that he is a religious person in professional sports; sports fans immediately cried foul.)
Here’s the winning comment, from John Dillon of New Haven, Conn.:
Religion's on basketball courts!
(Or so David Brooks now reports);
The truer anomaly
Is printing a homily
By eggheads unlettered in sports.
