The Bill Simmons Time-Wasting Special

Bill Simmons of ESPN has become one of my favorite writers. He is just about the only reason I ever check out And this week he didn't disappoint.
After a decade of watching the Internet change everyone's lives (including mine), it never ceases to amaze me. The Internet gave me a job and a career. I pay my bills online, follow stocks, buy DVDs and books, argue about the Celtics with complete strangers on a message board, send streaming video of my kid back home to my parents, get almost all my sports information, keep in touch with dozens and dozens of family members, friends, acquaintances and co-workers every week. There's always some new way to kill time. But YouTube ranks among the greatest Internet developments ever, right up there with iTunes, Napster, free porn and e-mails with "Vegas?" in the subject heading.
I can't even begin to tell you all the time I have wasted this week watching Bill's Hall of Fame videos. Here is Bill's complete list. I couldn't resist highlighting my favorites:
