The Single Greatest Endorsement Ever!

Last week, if you remember, we ran a satirical post detailing Jamie Smalligan losing his starting position to Kerri Kosten, a WVU freshman. You see, Miss Kosten is both blind and deaf, which makes for the hilariousness of the post.We figured we’d get a lot of laughs and a few people who thought we were complete assholes. It was bound to happen, even though the last thing on our mind was making fun of anyone but Jamie Smalligan. And no one should be able to quarrel with that.

Of course, when THE Kerri Kosten sent us an e-mail a few days ago, we were initially scared shitless. Eventually, though, we stopped crying and opened the e-mail.

This is what she wrote:

Hi Charley:

I just wanted to thank you for the hilarious post on your blog about me starting in place of Jamie Smalligan. I was not offended by it at all and found it hilarious. I often wonder if I had sight how into playing sports I would be.

I am just wondering.

Congrats on your blog and Let’s GOOOO Mountaineers!!

And in that one short e-mail, Kerri Kosten became our new best friend.

Seriously, how cool do you have to be to send that e-mail? Much cooler than us, certainly. We’ve only been operating a few short months, but we have not and will never receive a better endorsement for this site. Truly awesome.

So thanks, Kerri, for having an awesome sense of humor.

  1. SEND THAT GIRL A FREE T-SHIRT! Incredible. Now if only J-Smalls would do the same… Do you think he wonders how into sports he would be if he could see?

  2. Awesomeness.

    And your post was prophetic, I think Smalligan is well on his way to losing his starting spot to another freshman, named Cam. Seriously, he brings a lot more to the table… like bacon.

  3. Send Smalligan a t-shirt that says, “you’ve been kosten-ed”

  4. Kerri Kosten is my new kevin pitsnoggle.
    i❤ her!

  5. In Smalligan’s defense, he’s probably trying to do the best he can. He simply isn’t talented enough to play at this level and especially in this league (the top league in the top Division). Beilein is to blame for not recognizing the limitations of his ability prior to allowing him to transfer

  6. Kudos. You guys have passed the test of great satire. You have made fun of, and received compliments from your subjects.

    Congrats, and to Kerri, good on ya. You ought to get a hold of Ken Kendrick and tell him how folks with the initials KK are supposed to act!

  7. Remember Charley we always taught you that if you can”t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all… oh hell, we keep fogetting this is the West By God Virginia sports blog (but we will keep Smalligan in our thoughts and prayers)
