"Daulerio tells me it's the eleventh straight night he's been out drinking"

26 Jan

First off, that line from Esquire’s profile of Deadspin’s editor-in-chief encapsulates the decline of Deadspin better than any rant I could’ve written. I can’t pinpoint any exact moment that made me go from commenting on nearly every single Deadspin post to flat-out rejecting its existence, but I’d wager to guess it was almost immediately when Leitch left and the site turned into the rumor-laden bitch session full of lame-ass hack commenters trying to out-offend each other that it is today. Last time I visited the site, one of the writers posted an indignant rant about the popularity of Taylor Swift. Swear to god.

Secondly, who counts? How old are you?
