For all two of you who were wondering, I am the new Deadspin intern. Naturally, I'll be the "Emtern"—you know, Ben, Bentern, Emma, Emtern. But if I know Deadspin at all, I'll probably be remembered as the Femtern.
This experience will be good for me, in that "building character" kind of way from Calvin and Hobbes. I am a working case in desensitization. I went to a liberal arts college where the words most overheard in a classroom were "problematic" and "hegemonic," and my sports column for the weekly newspaper read a lot like a sociology essay. But since my first entry, my dad's only emailed me twice to ask if "this Deadspin thing is really such a good idea." Thank you for that. I'll be fine, though. If my brief sportswriting career has one recurring theme, it's humiliation.
