Q&A: Will Leitch: An interview with the founder of Deadspin.com.

Leitch: I've started to realize that it is best just to think of ESPN as another sports league. Now that's a good idea. Could we get up a game of [ ] between ESPN and FOXSPORTSNETWORK? How many other sports sites are out there to make up a league? I know of the VS channel but that's the only three I'm aware of. SI.com: The story you want the most for Deadspin? Leitch: A major athlete coming out. But I don't know how much joy I would get out of someone finding a photo of Athlete X making out with some guy. I found that to be hilarious.

I can remember, back when Peyton began to be a dominating QB, a fella by the name of Sean Salisbury, would dog him daily, say how he wasn't a top QB, and basically ridicule him on ESPN. I myself don't care for Sean, and Stewart Scott? He's as bad or worse then then Jim Rome. They're as painful as Greg Bumbel. I have to turn the tube down, and let my 7 and 8 year old sons give the play by play!

Will's book tour hits Philly tomorrow, and I'll be there. I'm looking forward to it.

I did enjoy the article (as I posted above), but today, I visited Deadspin.com and started reading the articles and posts on their front page. The articles were interesting but the posting was terrible. After reading 45 one-liners that usually had zilch to do with the article, they all started looking the same. I just scrolled right through the page. No offense to any deadspin members here, but I'll stick to SportsFilter.
