2014 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Inductee: Tommy Craggs

Tommy Craggs has left us to lord over every other Gawker Media site for the next year or so, after which he'll probably need work. After getting a big ol' boner in the quest to verify that Manti Te'o's dead girlfriend was indeed fake and turning Deadspin into a site for communist propaganda, he no longer has to… » 1/09/15 6:30pm 1/09/15 6:30pm

2014 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Nominee: Roger Goodell

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell showed his ass to everyone this year. The leak of surveillance footage showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancée in an elevator led to Goodell, who'd spent years carefully cultivating a reputation for square-jawed competence, standing revealed for… » 1/07/15 12:01pm 1/07/15 12:01pm

2014 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Nominee: Donald Sterling

Donald Sterling lost ownership of the Clippers after he was caught on tape being racist. (We already knew he was a vile man, but an actual recording was too much to ignore.)

2013 Deadspin Hall of Fame Nominee: Vodka Samm

Vodka Samm stumbled and slurred her way into our hearts back in September. She tried to jump on the field during a University of Iowa football game, was snagged by police before she could get there, had a .341 blood-alcohol content, and unashamedly boasted about it all on Twitter. Vodka Samm showed us how to do… » 11/27/13 11:37am 11/27/13 11:37am

2013 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Nominee: "Horrifying Diarrhea Sludge"

There may be a regional foodstuff somewhere in America that's worse than "Cincinnati chili." But we've yet to find it. More than a few Ohioans took umbrage with our take on their "abominable garbage-gravy." But what's important to keep in mind is that these are people who actually enjoy eating the stuff. They're… » 11/26/13 5:25pm 11/26/13 5:25pm

2013 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Nominee: Manti Te'o's Dead Girlfriend

Lennay Kekua was the heartbreaking story of the 2012 college football season. She was the young, beautiful girlfriend of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, but she died that September. The way the narrative went, her death served as an inspiration for what would become a charmed season, both for Te'o and for the… » 11/26/13 12:15pm 11/26/13 12:15pm

2013 Deadspin Hall Of Fame Nominee: Rocket Frog

This remarkable photograph of a frog's ascension into the heavens was captured during the September launch of NASA's LADEE-laden Minotaur V Rocket. We'd like to think that, instead of succumbing to fiery death and returning to Earth as fried grenouille a la NASA, Rocket Frog slipped the surly bonds of Earth and made… » 11/25/13 4:00pm 11/25/13 4:00pm
