One of the first RSS feeds I added to Google Reader (RIP) was Deadspin (also RIP). It was always a bright spot in the day, opening the Funbag or Dadspin or the latest goofy/dumb/weird sports blog.1

I will miss Deadspin. It’s voice was funny, irreverent, and genuine, and it was home to several fantastic writers. Others will eulogize the site better, but I will say I started my blog around the time I started reading Deadspin regularly.

Here are my favorites, in no particular order. Read them with several ad blockers on, if you don’t want your RAM to melt.

And then, of course, the David J Roth Trump pieces, tagged The Big Wet President.


  1. Note the order – it was more engaging when they did not stick to sports.
