Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Holiday Announcements And Other Things Of Note

Tomorrow is technically an "off day" for Gawker media, but we'll be intermittently posting some stuff that will hopefully keep those of you trapped at work for a few hours occupied. Lots and lots of pictures.

And now here's this: One Andy Hutchins, whom many of you knew around these parts as RockYouLikeAnIracane/Rockabye/incessantly needy boy from Florida, decided to curtail his usual late night masturbatory message board habits for a short period of time to write something of substance about the new Deadspin (and Gawker) commenting page which I'm told will launch on Tuesday. Andy stumbled upon the easily-sniffed out "stage" (Gawker is not NORAD) versions of the sites, which offer a preview of how the new system will work. He then provided a helpful step-by-step breakdown of how it will impact readers, commenters, Deadspin, the state of sports media, the Iranian election, the BCS, and anything else that cluttered his frighteningly active mind at 4 a.m. on a Wednesday, a time most young men his age are usually fast asleep with multiple co-eds on top of them. No, not Andy (never!).

Aside from the couple hours of annoyance he caused Gawker editors yesterday, he actually provided a good mock-up of some of the things we'll all have to deal with starting next week. So look it over and marvel at his industriousness. All told, it was a great post in its service presentation and its gamesmanship. Cheers, sir. One can only hope his parents recognize his new-found maturity and finally let him drive a car at night.

Tomorrow: Lots of galleries and quicklinks and any breaking news not related to hot dog eating contests or fireworks.

Saturday: Gourmet Spud offers up his Canadian ass to entertain you. You know what I mean.

Sunday: Idiot Barking Dog.

Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin during my first year. Yes. That happened.
