You really should go back and read all the old Jay Mariotti posts. (Here's the first one ever, from July 2005, before the site was even live yet.) The man has been both a signpost of precisely what is wrong about sports (the type of thing Deadspin, in general, has tried to be against) and a consistent source of awkward (and ultimately scary and creepy) comedy. Again: We're surprised he's not in the Hall already.

So: Is Jay Mariotti a Deadspin Hall of Famer?

You decide. Seventy five percent is the threshold for induction. Vote below: Polls will be open through Labor Day.
