I’m So Bored I Started Following Buzz Bissinger On Twitter

Buzz Bissinger is undeniably a great writer, having penned many an article and book, including the disgustingly brilliant Friday Night Lights.  He’s also one of today’s greatest curmudgeons, and puts that talent and skill to great use on twitter.  Yep, Buzz is on twitter.

Bissinger’s a brilliant man trying to re-find his voice.

Plus he’s fucking hilarious.
