Dee Mirich Says Goodbye To Our Editor In Her Own Special Way

She doesn't actually mention him by name, but we know that prolific Internet horse poet Dee Mirich has been touched in a profound way by Will's imminent departure. Just read between the lines of her latest poem and you'll find a stirring tribute to Will, Deadspin, and of course Grade II Peter Pan Stakes winner Casino Drive. But I caution you: Be sure to have a handkerchief close by. And also a sandwich (it's very long).

Too much here to actually process. Just remember, Will, that wherever you go from here on out, Barbaro's rainbow will be shining on you; and should you ever develop laminitis, don't be surprised if it magically melts away. And, you know, 8 halos, or something.
