One of the best sites on the internet that I’ve mentioned in the space before is Deadspin (http://www.deadspin.com). It’s a sports-satire site that I recommend highly to anyone who will listen. They’re one of the top sports sites on the internet — I believe it is the most trafficked sports blog – and they’ve linked to us a few times, so we feel obliged to pass along any good news. The guy who runs the site, Will Leitch, made a guest appearance on ESPN Radio with Scott Van Pelt last week and the audio clip can be found here:
It’s a great listen. Will is one of those few guys who is still a blogger, he hates ESPN like the rest of us, but his site is so successful that it’s mainstream enough to actually matter so he’s stuck in a bizarre middle-ground. He got in a few nice digs but cracked a few one-liners, and while it’s not like any new ground was broken you have to admire the efforts of both guys on this broadcast. Van Pelt is one of few likeable ESPN personalities and Leitch, while perhaps a better writer than broadcaster, brings up a few interesting points.
