———————————————————— by Ballin’ Jones Hardcourt Correspondent, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— Attention. Attention, everyone. If you could quiet down in the back. I have little to say that hasn’t already been said by Grantland’s finest staff writer. Or, written by him. I can picture him laughing while he writes it, though, so I guess that’s why […]Read more "Rembert Browne Just Owned the Internet with Sheens v. Jordan"
———————————————————— by Turner Lavoie Literary Correspondent, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— The funny thing about being an awfully pessimistic website (all the time) is that you eventually become as predictable as the stuff you claim isn’t creative.

———————————————————— by Tom Ebbetts Diamond Dispatch, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— How much trouble are the Los Angeles Dodgers in? In short, not much.
