Christmas in September

I don't care what the calendar says. It is Christmas.

Because the FJM boys have taken over Deadspin.
Founded in 2005, [Fire Joe Morgan's] original purpose was to garner support for a proposed mosque to be built in lower Manhattan, but as time went on, it evolved into a site dedicated to the eradication of poorly written sports journalism. Over the three years we were in operation, we were 99.44% successful, which is why there is virtually no bad sports journalism today. You're welcome.

Every year for the past one years, Deadspin has invited us to reunite on their site and comment on the worst sports journalism of the year. ...

So, are you ready to have some crummy sportswriting histrionically attacked as if it were existentially threatening our very humanity? You are?

In that case...

We are Fire Joe Morgan. And we are here today to rock your world.

(Assuming your world is rocked by the histrionic attacking of shoddy sports journalism.)

(It is? Then read on, friend!)
I will (somehow) resist posting any snips, but you got stuff on Murray Chass, Bill Conlin, David Eckstein, Mitch Albom, Derek Jeter, a special appearance by the Clich├ęTron 4000, and an article entitled "Titties Vs. VORP".

Thanks for linking...I would have missed it otherwise.

I love the smell of FJM in the morning :)

(And I haven't even gotten around to "Titties vs. VORP" yet)
