Oddjack Takes Its Final Bow

It is with much sadness that we point you to the very last day of Oddjack, our beloved brother site that's ceasing operations today. Obviously, not enough people were checking out Oddjack, and that, we're afraid, was your loss: We've never been big gamblers but found our friend A.J. Daulerio's site useful, sharp and, most of all, incredibly funny, on pretty much a daily basis. The Interweb is an emptier place without Daulerio doing his thing over there.

We're going to make sure A.J. makes more than a few appearances here at Deadspin, but we better do it fast: We're not the only ones with that idea. Here's a tip of a fruity beverage to Daulerio and Oddjack: You'll be missed. To quote Kirk at the end of Wrath of Khan (which happens to be playing on our television this very second): "Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most ... human."

Oh, and remember: Oddjack has a dragon. He has named him Blop-o-nartus. Yep.
