Our Dearly Departed Former EIC Is A Fucking Idiot For Thinking The Letter Q Stinks

One thing we always like to do at Barstool Sports is throw haymakers at people when they're walking out the door. That's what happened when Trysta left, and that's what's happening now. This blog right here is an example of that.

Let me explain: Last Friday, we recorded the "alphabet" draft with Coley on his last day on the gig. He had the idea to draft "letters of the alphabet" when he came on a prior draft a few months back, and with him no longer being a coworker of ours, we decided to oblige his dying wish. 

It was a bittersweet draft; it sucks to see Coley go as he was a good head honcho of the blog. I never got to know Coley too well on a personal level, but him and I were always straight as far as coworkers go. At least on my end we were. That was until he decided to burn that camaraderie to the ground while he was one foot out the door by trashing the letter "Q" on our beloved snake draft. 

First off, he didn't even give a reason why Q was 26 out of 26 on his big board. Just said that it was. I rebuked his idiotic stance with the following facts:

1. It's just a sweet letter (because it is)
2. If someone has a last name that starts with Q, you can just go by "Q" and that also is sweet
3. It's the Lone Ranger. Doesn't need to be the life of the party. Swings by when he wants to and commands respect from all the letters surrounding him
4. Has a personal body guard (the letter U) to keep all the other half wit letters away from him whenever he feels like the other letters are getting too clingy

In summation... Fuck Coley. There are myriad other reasons why the letter Q rocks and was a perfectly adequate mid round pick. I'll let you listen to the draft for yourselves to get a better grasp of why. 

The "Alphabet" snake draft is LIVE!!
