The World According to Ray Ratto: "Something awful happened to Ray Ratto. It isn't that he lost his job. It's worse than that: A lot of people have been telling Ratto how much they like him. Ratto's sportswriting stock-in-trade is the insult. Praise makes him suspicious. 'I think when you want to say something nice about somebody, it should be private,' Ratto told me. 'When you want to say something shitty, everybody should see it.'"

On the whole, I can't believe he's not from Philadelphia.

Not sure why the White House hasn't switched the daily press briefing focus from news to sports and replaced the podium with a four person panel of Ratto, Dan Shaughnessy, Norman Chad, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Three oafs and a string o' pearls.

Enjoyed this piece from Ratto, which was published at Deadspin yesterday.
