    You must have never had one of those momentum.

    It was a momentum occasion.

    It's like that song they sing at the end of March Madness.

    "One Shining Momentum"

    I used to be an editor at an advertising agency and I can tell you that most people who get paid to write for a living typically aren't very good writers.

    Don't hate Omar, hate the folks who hired him.

    If I had a time machine I would use it to travel back to the exact momentum they hired him and tell them he is horrible.

    This is one momentum in time I'd like to forget.

    I swear, he's like an uneducated person who is trying to use big words. My job in the Navy is Public Affairs/Media, so this type of thing drives me crazier than the normal viewer I guess. My only guess is that the Sun-Sentinel doesn't require copy-editing for blog entries. Someone need to clue them in that the majority of people (particularly those who don't live in south FL) get their Dolphins news from the blogs of their beat writers.

    Outside of a select few newspapers, nobody in the business cares if writers are any good at all. What matters is selling newspapers, and as long as people are talking about Omar Kelly, the Sun Sentinel sports section will sell newspapers.

    Dan Le Batard is probably one of the most naive people on the planet, and I think he is genuinely one of the worst sports writers in the United States, but he is great for the Miami Herald. People read his articles, even if it's only to shake their heads and wonder how the guy actually gets paid for expressing his opinion. I know that I definitely listen to his radio show to be entertained by such great opinions as 'athletes don't put in more effort during contract years.'

    True, but in Le Batard's case he is actually entertaining. I don't know about his articles, but as a radio and TV personality he is fun to listen to. I imagine his articles are similar.

    Kelly doesn't even have TV to fall back on. He's a fish in front of the camera. Have you ever watched one of his X's and Omar shows? In a word: UNBEARABLE.

    I hate all of them. And twitter. Not sure why people follow him. It only keeps him around.

    The copy-editor only took a momentum to take a quick glace. All those cups of coffee in the morning were creating moment in his lower digestive orifice.

    I've been saying this for quite some time. I know it sounds mean,
    and I know he writes better than some posters here.

    The key to that is he is a professional writer. He's very poor
    at the basic structure and mechanics of his craft. Seriously,
    you can't build a house without a foundation, and his foundation
    is very poor.

    He is a poor writer, and he would not write for any paper that
    I owned.

    Lebetard is entertaining and he knows what the words he uses mean.

    His articles are well crafted and fundamentally sound. Now, you may not
    agree with his views, because he does tend to jump to the side where
    he's running counter to the popular stream of herd animals, but that's
    a taste issue, not a structure and mechanics issue.

    I follow him on twitter because he has inside info, seeing as how he is allowed entry into daily activity. I loathe him for the way he uses this as an 'I'm better than you, and you owe me respect' chip. He's threatened to block me on numerous topics we've debated. He's a tool of a human being.

    You just have to take a momentum every day and just soak in life.

    I'd think we could come up with a long list for just about anywhere.

    Heck, they found OJ Innocent in LA!

    Washington DC Re Elected a Mayor that was on Camera
    smokeing crack with a hooker.

    New York...Well, I'd hope I wouldn't even need to go into all the
    stupidity that you can simply read the New York Post for daily...
    Heh..Speaking of stupid...

    And New Jersey? The same place that thinks you need "special training"
    to pump gas? Yeah...Speaking of retarded...

    Yeah.. the gas thing is the worst.. What makes that even worse is that people (women) here brag that they done pump their own gas. Little do they know that self serve is cheaper than full serve!

    Yet he's always wrong. Access to daily activity doesn't mean access to inside information.

    No fan of Omar but it is possible he had his auto correct on causing the error.

    He was probably watching a sports science segment at the time. Most likely the momentum of the snap on the punter during a punt. Riveting

    In the Immortal words of The Right Reverend Ike, "And that is why you will never own a newspaper"! At this momentum in your life you are thinking small, thinking small gets you nowhere and living in Goatsville. You have to learn to squeeze the momentum, just like Omar, embrace the new ounces of modern writing, and take it to the next level of intellectual intercourse, all of you Omar haters will see, when he wins his first Pulitzer, then we we see what you have to say at that momentum!

    As a writer, if you're going to publish something, you always, always, always copy edit it before posing/printing it. He's just being lazy.
