Armchair Quarterbacks in the Blogosphere

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams West Sound Realty

armchair-quarterback.jpgThe Blogosphere has long been the breeding ground for self-proclaimed 'Armchair Quarterbacks.'

"Anyone with a blog, an expanded vocabulary, and a condescending attitude gains immediate credibility as an expert in any field, profession, or discipline."

Subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, or quote the latest market trends from the Economist or Fast Company, and your opinions carry even more weight.

Nevermind that these 'Armchair Bloggers' have never actually 'played' the game. Oh, to be sure, they've probably watched a few times from their sheltered corporate skyboxes while sipping on the lastest trendy microbrew.

But they've never actually been 'IN' the game!

Olan - family members are some of the worst culprits. Many of us have had deals destruct because of a family members poor advice.

Rich, I remember that game oh so well and the song that went with it.. Remember??
You really put this post in words I can understand and I'd much rather read that then read something by "Anyone with a blog, an expanded vocabulary, and a condescending attitude" I don't like people like that at all! $7 for a beer at a game? Dang!
