Yesterday, Pittsburgh-area sports columnist John Steigerwald became a viral sensation due to his lunkheaded, insensitive column about the beating of 42-year-old Bryan Stow. Steigerwald tried to defend himself today. Still, he's secured his place in Deadspin's pantheon of "Yard Abandonment" — a reference to the OC Register's Mark Whicker, the original yard abandoner, whose column about Jaycee Dugard was declared to be" the worst piece of sports journalism ever committed to the page." So Congratulations to John on his induction. He won't be the last.
