Finally, my brother’s bizarre obsession with the weather nets him something other than mockery from loved ones — a shoutout from Scott Van Pelt:
Mottrams should kill SB Nation or Mottram bros kill it? I’ll go with the latter.
That was quite nice of SVP, and it was in response to Chris retweeting something Van Pelt had tweeted about “thunder snow” and blah blah blah Twitter. (Related: Follow Chris and me and Mr. Irrelevant on Twitter!)
It wasn’t Chris’ first rodeo with the ESPN star and noted Terps fan. As you may recall, they also had a conversation on SVP’s radio program back when Chris was still at Sporting News.
Apparently, Van Pelt is a fan of Chris’ current employer (SB Nation, y’all), the brothers Mottram and, presumably, Mr. Irrelevant too. Of course, his exclusion of the Yahoo! Sports Blogs is blatant snubbery.
We’ll remember this, Van Pelt.
