I once fell off my chair - in an open office - while reading the Hater’s Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog. So, thank you for that and everything else. Deadspin was a national treasure, and you and Barry and Diana and Tom and David and Samer and Will and Laura and Lauren and AJ everyone else still are national Read more

That should be “cessation” rather than “secession” I think?

I must have fallen asleep and missed the bits where Booger did some real analysis. Mostly what I heard was the same kind of “the Jets just need to help out Sam Darnold, he’s a young quarterback” nothingburgers we got from Tessitore.

Kind of unsurprising that even when the tech bro approach works at building a roster and winning a ton of games, they still suck as human beings.

John Oliver’s stirring defense of Marquese Chriss and trashing of Morey for not keeping him is worthy of mention, too. Even if it was in service of a joke, whoever wrote that clearly admired the player.

In the same part of the country where people endlessly rage about “participation trophies,” apparently no one can play class B or C football. Just different numbers of As.

In base ball of the 1860s, the umpire had the option of “no call” rather than ball or strike. Near enough to be a legitimate attempt by the pitcher, far enough that the batter is not wasting time by leaving it go. Or just too tricky to tell.

Also lovely to see a really polite exchange - “Do you know what coverage they were playing?” as an honest question to get at what level of detail he’d need in his response.

Fuck, this whole blog reminds me that I need to lose about 20 pounds by mid November to fit into a suit for a fucking destination wedding. Fuck.
