Megyn’s moment will prove fleeting

I don’t begrudge anyone who receives big money from people who are willing to pay them. God bless the Matt Flynns of the world, the Brock Osweilers, and anyone who cashed in on a few moments in time. Of course, I do feel bad for the fans of these franchises. Their teams are sitting with dead money, and those contracts can literally decimate a team for at least half a decade, not to mention getting many front office people fired. Sports and entertainment history is littered with cautionary tales of dead money, money spent on people who had a moment. Again, I don’t begrudge, take what you can earn if someone is willing to pay. Lord knows as a Yankee fan I know about dead money.

How did Joey do without his Friends? How has Katie done without Matt? How did Joanie and Chachi do without The Fonz? How did Elton do without Bernie? The list goes on and I’m sure you can add many instances that I have omitted. Hey, how’s Colbert doing without his Stewart? You can put some people in a grocery aisle, and people will ask them advice on which ketchup to buy or what’s the softest toilet paper. Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, to name a few, and some people who you will politely say to, excuse me, your wagon is in my way, Megyn Kelly.

A great rule in life, Megs, is to never overvalue your hand, and never to believe the hype, maybe that’s two rules. You had a moment and good for you, you seized on it. Instead of reporting on a story you became the story. I can’t believe I’m going to compliment Chuck Todd, Anderson Cooper, and Jake Tapper right now, or for that matter Katy Tur, but all of them made the decision to report on “the story” and not become the story. Some of these people were far more knocked and ridiculed than you were, obviously in my opinion fairly. But you seized on it like a fat guy at a buffet.
