Keith Lam is the programming guy for ESPN.com and spent most of his final hour yesterday fighting off unicorns from ESPN.com's site. How did this awesomeness happen? He explains. Kind of.
The Cornify program is the culprit, but Lam maintains that ESPN.com wasn't hacked. It appears to be an April Fool's prank gone unnoticed that Kotaku's tipsters spotted and then unleashed upon the WWL's readership to everyone's delight. From Lam's blog:
That super-duper nerdspeak is enough to spark more unicorn infested hallucinations. But there has to be a culprit — a disgruntled programmer, Stephen A., NORBY!. That person has yet to come forward and ESPN's personal Ted Stryker, Josh Krulewitz, has yet to come through with a blog-safe quote that keeps the WWL on-message. Hopefully, that'll happen. In the meantime, those who know a whole lot about coding and Easter Eggs and stuff might want to investigate ESPN's new opening.
Go outside, already. It's, like, hot. Oh — and there's an historic Deadspin anniversary tomorrow.
Thank you for your continued support of another Deadspin molting stage. Does anybody real fuck like a volcano? Ever?
