Bill Simmons interviewed Barack Obama on his podcast today. And the Internet freaked out about it.Sportswriters, bloggers, and fans took to Twitter to rag on Simmons with the hashtag #SportsguyObamaCast.

As with all hashtag memes, some of the tweets were pretty hilarious while others were lame as hell. Most focused on the Simmons-isms and crackpot theories that writers always criticise Simmons for leaning on.

Were the tweets too petty? Envious? Weak?

Or did the digs hit the spot?
