Welcome back, hucksters. If you ever wondered whether Shitehawk has a temper, try linking to one of his Sidespin posts in the Total Fucking Duds section of a Roundup. That's what I call a "short fuse." [shudders; winces]
Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting
Favorites, in no particular order:
Doc Holliday makes another favorites appearance with this wry dart in the morning's Swollen Hand post. Good eye.
My word. This scenography in the American Ninja Warrior post might be one of the most cerebral efforts in recent memory I've seen from SavetoFavorites, which is saying a lot, because StF is one of the headiest contributors wandering around Deadspin's comments section. I've said before that StF's "screenplays" dash forward at break-neck pace, and this one is no different. The especial appeal here, though, is how seamlessly, effortlessly, and subtly he works in the feminism-can-be-funny angle. Before you know it, you're reading a rather profound vignette on the state of women in sport and the workplace more generally. Take a much-deserved Comment of the Day, buddy.
IronMikeGallego (if that's even his real name) had a busy day. Here's an excellent been-caught-looking line in the Erin Andrews post that drew a satisfying giggle from Your Curator.
FreemanMcNeil stopped by the Deion Sanders' School story for an excellent jab at PrimeTime's (lack of) tackling ability.
Here's PedroiasBaldSpot with a funny turn-around in Samer's Eric Lindros post. Good stuff.
Total Fucking Duds
The theme of tonight's duds is: Your Curator Has No Tolerance For Sexism, Misogyny, "But-She-Hit-Him-First," "She's-Only-On-TV-Because-She's-Hot," or Bald-Faced Boys Club Horseshit. Without further ado …

That's it for me, and I'm sorry there are more duds than favorites. But, just going through everything today and seeing so many mouth-breathers type out essentially the same fucking horseshit irked me a little bit. I'll come back happier tomorrow.
