Many of you, our readers, are smart, your decision to visit Deadspin notwithstanding. See what you can get out of this blog post by Sports Illustrated managing editor Chris Stone and “Time Inc. Sports Group digital editor” Mark McClusky, hailing the ailing magazine’s, uh, “transformational digital partnership” with…
Earlier today, Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports announced a “multiyear advertising and editorial agreement,” as per the Wall Street Journal, an arrangement that can only be read as two listing giants seeking to prop each other up.

Here is Peter King, a face drawn on the side of Roger Goodell’s hand, telling you two ways that he likes to eat diarrhea. He likes to eat diarrhea on top of spaghetti with onions and cheese, and he likes to eat diarrhea on a hot dog, also with onions, but with no mustard.

Adrian Peterson doesn’t want redemption for whipping his child with a tree branch, but Sports Illustrated is delivering it to him anyway.

On Monday, Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit sent a dumb tweet in which he expressed his disdain for all women’s sports, including the Women’s World Cup.
