Bill Simmons, Randy Moss, Twitter

If you are on twitter (which I am) and if you follow ESPN’s Bill Simmons (which I do) you may have seen an interesting tweet last week. It simply said “moss Vikings.” Several minutes later Simmons tweeted that his previous tweet was supposed to be a direct message to someone. Nevertheless the inadvertent tweet sent rumors swirling of a Moss trade to the Vikings. Eventually this rumor was confirmed and the next morning the deal had been done.

While much of this has been documented, The Sports Guy’s column this week explains the behind the scenes of how it all went down. Like a typical Simmons piece it’s pretty wordy, but good.  It provides a very nice insight to the inner workings of ESPN and insider information.  Follow the link to check out the column.
