Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Heavens to murgatroid, folks, it's that time of year again. Next week, voting commences for the 2010 Deadspin Hall Of Fame class commences. Deadspin turns five years old on September 8. How old we've all gotten.


Starting on Monday of next week, I'll be putting up a different candidate for your vote every day, which means that there are five nominees, because there are five weekdays. Here is your opportunity to suggest which sacred souls will strive for immortality. You can leave them in the comments, or you can email me at The Deadspin staff will review them all over the weekend and unleash nomination fury on Monday.

Reminders: This is not Sportshuman of the Year. When considering candidates for the Hall of Fame, you are looking at their career achievements, not necessarily those in the most recent calendar year. Also: It is extremely difficult to be elected to the Hall of Fame: It requires a 75 percent vote. (By this measure, "Was our President born in the United States?" might not make the Hall of Fame. It's a steep climb.) Only the best and most inglorious can receive the honor of a Jim Cooke bronze plaque.

To remind: Here are all the current members of the Deadspin Hall Of Fame and their years of election:

Carl Monday
Kyle Orton
Clinton Portis
Run You Stupid Fucking Dinosaur, Run
Renee Thomas And Angela Keathley
Viking Sex Boat
You're With Me, Leather




Buzz Bissinger
Will Leitch
Isiah Thomas
Marques Slocum's Fuck Lion


Charles Barkley


So send ye forth thy nominations. And I'll see you Monday.
