There are very few things Stephen A. Smith enjoys more than spitting into a camera lens about the underachieving Cowboys or the dangers of marijuana, but one of those happens to be sexual intercourse.

Just two months ago, Mr. Smith found it critical to speak for NBA players hogs when advocating for conjugal visits to be allowed into the bubble, pandemic be damned.

At age 52, Smith is not married, never has been, and was tight-lipped to GQ in 2019 about a failed engagement years earlier.

What’s an annual salary of $8 million per year, if you have no one to spend it on?

Typically I stay away from the Dating Rumor beat, but seeing Stephen A. Smith court a woman is like seeing Andy Reid in gym shorts. It is news. It is my duty to disseminate it.

Smith was spotted mingling with ESPN broadcaster and former Stanford baller Rosalyn Gold-Onwude at an unknown eater, wearing sunglasses inside, a veteran move to mask wandering eyes.

There’s no evidence that this is more than an industry meeting of minds or a platonic meeting between friends, but can a man dream?

I choose to believe that Rosalyn accompanied Stephen back to his pad, and instead of things getting frisky, Stephen A. dimmed the lights, lit some candles, and threw this video on the projector screen.

Rosalyn ultimately left when she found out Stephen A. is not Kawhi Leonard.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
