Really, Sports Guy?

*Over the years, Bill Simmons has written a bunch of things which I am sure he regrets. Happens to all writers, of course. But, I doubt he has ever wanted to take back two sentences quicker than these two from his last article. Describing Sammi Sweetheart from "Jersey Shore," he said:

At first glance, super attractive. Upon further review, more trouble then it's worth.

1- Sammi Sweetheart is not attractive at any glance. There's no debating this.
2- Being a seasoned writer, Simmons should know the difference between "then" and "than." (This is a pet peeve of mine.)
