Add Luke O’Neil to the long list of blue-checkmarks weeping over Deadspin’s utterly predictable collapse. Minifans will remember O’Neil as the “freelance writer” and friend of Shirley Leung who got fired from the Boston Globe after he wrote a column encouraging waiters to fuck with people’s food if they disagreed about politics. O’Neil’s eulogy for all the site’s jobless writers does a pretty good job of explaining why all the site’s writers are jobless.

I guess we found the one guy who woke up every morning to indulge in Barry “Rape-Is-Just-Surprise-Sex” Petchesky’s musings on the quality of fat girls’ blow jobs. We’ve asked him to come on the Kirk Minihane Show to tell us what he really thinks about red-assed coaches and capitalism, but I’m guessing 8:00 AM is a little too early for him.
