Who’s the Scoop?

Mar 8, 2005, 2:31 PM EDT

ESPN is introducing their new Page2 writer, Scoop Jackson.  Could someone please translate his first paragraph for me:

They asked me to intro self. To take 900 words to explain I.

Well, first off – I is not that important. I am just a writer from Slam, XXL, NBA and Nike who found his way into ESPN’s backdoor. Lucked up. Spit a few verbs, convinced ‘em that Stephen A. wasn’t the only one.

So instead of wasting space on Page 2 ducking my own sic, I figured if I told you some of the things I believe in, that would give you a better idea of what I intend to flip once a week for the Worldwide Leader. Because it ain’t where you at; it’s where you coming from that matters. Right?

What does sic mean?  Ain’t it where me at?  or I’m at?  or are you there?  He goes on to talk about A.I:

I believe Allen Iverson is the best player in the game.

I believe Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are better than him.

I don’t get it.

Some other interesting Philly thoughts Mr. Scoop has to say:

I believe Santa Claus got booed in Philly for a reason.

I believe if T.O. was white, he’d be a national hero.

I believe what Rush Limbaugh said was true – stupid, but true.

Scoop, huh.  Well, he can’t be much worse than Stephen A. Smith, that’s for sure.  But going along with Rush?  I don’t know, he has lost some clout with me there.  I kind of agree with him on the T.O. point.  The man is unbelievable.
