Before people nitpickier than I am jump on this, no, the second "bust" was not a play on words intended to mean "head and upper chest", as in on display in the Hall of Fame.

Even if it was, one good season does not a HOF "bust" make. Although LeBatard isn't that bad, relative to other national sportswriters. Have you ever seen one of his chats? Pretty enjoyable, he cuts to the chase, answers a ton of questions, and generally makes me hate Bill Simmons even more than I already do.

Except that's exactly what he meant, whether you agree or not that 1) Mario Williams is headed for the HoF, or 2) it was a clever pun (it wasn't).

Suck it up. They can't all be diamonds.

Couldn't have been that. Either he thought of it in real-time (probability of .0001%), or thought about it beforehand and was like "yeah, I'll say this thing that like 2% of people will 'get' when they hear it in real-time".
