Chicago White Sox and Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf called sports columnist Jay Mariotti a "pissant" today during News 720 WGN's Business of Sports luncheon. The comment came after Reinsdorf was asked a question by WGN's David Kaplan about constant bashing by sports columnists. "Nobody ever cared what he said," Reinsdorf replied, referring to Mariotti.

The event, held at Texas de Brazil, is part of News 720 WGN's Business of Sports series, sponsored by Wintrust Financial.
