Hey kids! Consider a career in today's modern journalism! Make things up! Get quoted by national media! Get a paycheck and a dental plan for being totally useless! Here's how...

Sorry…I know I’ve already done one of these today, but I can’t resist this one.

Here’s part of Nola.com’s article on Nnamdi Asomugha’s visit to the Saints:

From all indications, the Saints are still high on both Greer and Robinson’s potential, and they’re hoping that the switch to new defensive coordinator Ryan and a more aggressive style will benefit both players. However, if they sign Asomugha, it’s possible that they would consider releasing one of their incumbents.

Note that: it’s possible the Saints would consider releasing one of their veterans. In other words, the sky is blue.

And here’s what it becomes once CBS gets its grubby hands on the story:

If Asomugha signs, the Saints could release Robinson or Greer, according to the Times-Picayune.

Sometimes I think I’m in the wrong business. Sports reporting is really easy if you don’t care about facts.

(And I’m going back to using the beer photos because, why not?)

    Sports journalists don’ need no stinking facts. They have all that gray matter between their ears to work with – you know, month-old tapioca.
