Sometimes sarcasm can’t be picked up in writing.

I don’t know anything about this Uncle Rico, but that can’t be a compliment.
Geno Smith’s first-half passer rating is two points lower than Bob Willis’s career Test batting average (*US followers, please ignore)

Umm, consider your request granted.
Right now Jamarcus Russell is by himself at Buffalo Wild Wings in a booth with 6 plates watching Geno Smith thinking he can make a comeback.

Now that is mean.
