We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We ranked Houston's 21 full-time sports-talk personalities from worst to first.
It generated some response, to put it lightly.

a few observations.
Matt Jackson: would be much more credible if his opinions were built on reasoning. He shoots from the hip, is rarely more informed than callers, and is routinely squashed - and rightfully so - by Lance and Adam, who are much more intelligent and informed.
idiots on ESPN at noon: one is a degenerate gambler who can't get over his mid-life crisis entry into the WSOP. My theory still sticks: any "poker player" who discusses his game as much as this a-hole is masking insecurities and leaks in his play. I also played in the WSOP when I turned 40, but I don't feel the need to tell the whole world about it on a regular basis. Also, his weak play is evidenced by his wearing of headphones and shades at the table: amateur hour. The other dude: frat boy who needs to haul his ass back to Austin and stay there. Aside from these points, these fools do know sports.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
