Goodbye Deadspin

For our couple of loyal readers - we include updates from some of the blogs we follow on the right side of the screen (if you are in the web version, not the mobile version).  For a long time Dan and I have been fans of the website Deadspin, which covered sports in an irreverent and mocking tone, and broke stories about crazy topics that the old-school sports journalists wouldn't touch.

However, Deadspin recently started including more and more politics in their posts, which is polarizing and stupid because I think most sports fans want to see sports-related content when they go to the site, not the usual "shouting into the toilet" of politics that you find everywhere else.

They also focus a lot of time on soccer, too, which is probably fine for some people but absolutely dead boring to me.

Bye-bye Deadspin.  If you ever go back to covering sports, I will give you a try again someday.

Every year prior to the start of the regular season, the "Why Your Team Sucks" articles are usually a good read...
