I Have a New Hero(ine)

Fresh from yesterday's righteous gutting of Rep. Tom Davis' thuggery toward Major League Baseball in the Sports section of the WashPost -- the only MSM outlet where you could have read about the disgusting gimlet-eyed power-play yesterday -- Sally Jenkins returns today with a howlingly funny imagining of the exchange between Vladimir Putin and NEPatriots owner Robert Kraft, in which Putin walked off with Kraft's Super Bowl ring in his pocket:

Putin: Is gift, no?

Kraft: No.

Putin: Yes.

Kraft: No.

Putin: Is nice.

Sally's the daughter of my favorite Guilty Pleasure, the Neanderthal-but-admit-it-hilarious Dan Jenkins, he of Semi-Tough and Baja Oklahoma, as well as some of the finest golf writing ever to grace the pages of Sports Illustrated.

She's done her daddy proud this week.

I read the column excoriating Davis, but I hadn't yet read the Putin one.

Is that right? She's Dan's daughter? I wonder if there's a writing gene, because at least in the Davis column she's as funny/nasty as her old man ever was in SI and Semi-Tough.

She's Dan's daughter, has alluded to it in her column. Here's an article she wrote about it.

more nurture than nature, is my guess... it would be good to barbecue with both after a round, eh? As they say in Texas, Dead Solid Perfect.

and speaking of sport, your Nationals are salting the suppurating wounds of Expos fans... just so you know...

Yup, that was a good one. She's really the best writer on the sports page, and one of the top 3 or 4 in the Post.

iirc, sally jenkins helped lance armstrong write his autobiography, it's not about the bike, which is a very good read and recommended by this commenter.
