Just A Pilgrim was certainly a breath of new air, if not fresh air. Although his act wore thin quickly, if only because his type is so prevalent on other message boards, not just sports message boards. I would have hoped he would demonstrate the strength of character to post every once in a while after Princeton and Penn carried away the title he had assumed would be Harvard's.

The endless chest-pounding, the ridiculous braggadocio. . . . We read it all day because it's at the bottom of any article on ESPN or any sports website. We are amused by Observer's need for affirmation, but that is universal on most sports websites. One would hope that graduates of top universities are getting their affirmation from some achievement more substantive than an alma mater with winning sports teams.

Sometimes I can barely believe some of the posters here are Ivy League graduates but, overall, the level of discourse is an order of magnitude higher than on most boards. Just A Pilgrim was just a messenger from one of those boards, nothing special.
