One of the great fringe benefits of editing a site like Deadspin: you get to go to such cool parties!

Seems like Deadspin doesn’t let facts get in the way of a good fake story. This morning, they quoted a bunch of Red Sox blogs, trying to give the impression that “Red Sox Nation” was crumbling… only, according to one blog, they took some of the quotes out of context to make their fake story look better.

Of course, I’ve got my own issues with Deadspin’s way of giving a faulty take in order to make a story out of a non-story.

Thanks for the link to the party snaps, BB. It’s pretty amazing what some people will do to avoid watching sports on TV, and don’t think I’m without empathy. I went to a party with some similar types once, and you would not believe the kind of shit that went down after the drugs kicked in.

    Referring to the Will Leitch glamour shots in the abovementioned photo gallery: Which of the following captions from Tale of Two Cities’ regular “Blue States Lose” feature (originally applied to other photos) could be applied to the Leitch photos also?

    A: Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Superfag knows.
    B: This guy is actually our hero. The people who dress in these ridiculous outfits at Misshapes think they’re being so cutting-edge and cool, but this guy was just like, “Fuck it, I’m going to be ridiculous just for the sake of being ridiculous and it’ll show these dumbasses not to take themselves so seriously.” Well done, sir. Doesn’t change the fact that you look like an absolute fucking retard, though.
    C: His older brothers raped him. Seriously, if you can think of any other explanation, shit, we’re all ears. But let’s look at the evidence in an objective light: His older brothers raped him.
    D: All of the above.
