The Internet Cesspool Claims Another VictimS

The man in the above photo is Ed Podolak, longtime radio man for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Ed apparently was forced to retire thanks to photos like the one above surfacing on some sports blogs.

Podolak was embarrassed by the pictures and apologized for behavior unbecoming of a Hawkeye or, most likely, boob-inspecting a woman dressed in what appears to be the dining room drapes of my childhood home. Some other blogs are reporting on the firing and ripping apart The Wiz of Odds, one of the original sites to run the photos, for his lack of compassion. It's all just fun and page views until 62-year-old broadcasters are forced into retirement.

In for a penny, in for a pound and all that.

TONIGHT: Go wish Lockhart Steele a happy birthday. I'm sure there are plenty of photos of him peering down ladies' blouses. If not, well, there probably will be by the end of tonight.

TOMORROW: The first portion of the Deadspin Civil War bet will be revealed. Oh, plus other stuff.

Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Adieu.
