Bill Simmons (born 1969) is a columnist for Page2 on ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. He is also known by the nickname of "The Boston Sports Guy" or just "Sports Guy" for short. His ESPN.com column is notable for being written from the viewpoint of a passionate Boston fan. Simmons often uses extended analogies and references to pop culture (especially from the 1980s and 1990s) in his columns. He moved to Los Angeles at the end of 2002 to help start the Jimmy Kimmel Show. He has since left the show to work full-time for ESPN.
