Need to go read an old Deadspin post now so that this doesn't go down as the last Deadspin story I ever laid eyes on

Deadspin's homepage is a work of art.

Hogan Gidley is the perfect name for a golf caddy. It also sounds like the name of a guy with a fake MD running a protein pill pyramid scheme out of his parents' basement.

After hearing about this new Flyers "rage room," in which you pay money to break shit while watching hockey, the only thing I wanted to smash was the entire premise of the thing.

Note to future corrupt public servants: Literally writing, "Keep moving, people, nothing to see here" is not the best way to allay suspicion.

Does obit news count as a scoop? If so, here's one: Last week, the NYT assigned a staffer to write the advance obit of Bernie Sanders. Which would be standard practice ... except for, you know, the timing. So I wrote about that here.

Hi Briahna. I'm a writer with Philadelphia magazine. I'm on deadline for a story and trying to reach the Sanders campaign for comment. (I've sent an email to the main press email.) If you catch this, could you email me? dmurrell@phillymag.com. Thanks.

Today I learned that buildings in Philadelphia emit more greenhouse gases than the entire country of Cyprus. (And Iceland, too.) How about that.

OK, I thought I'd pretty much lost the capacity to be shocked by anything Team Trump does but I have to say I'm flabbergasted by Barr, Pompeo and the highest U.S. officials taking part in a vast international conspiracy to go after Trump's enemies. Am I right to be stunned?

Third-hand accounts and cobbled-together press clippings ... all of which have been directly confirmed by the documents released so far. Hmm

"Prosecutors have said previously that he may need to enter the witness protection program." Suppose he could change the 6 on his face to an 8 and begin a new identity as Tekashi 89? It's either that becoming a full-time member of the Blue Man Group...

Fortunately, city officials cannot forbid us from talking to them, which means I can say the following: This is completely ridiculous.

Trying to decide if the better food and alcohol at the American Express airport lounge is worth the disproportionate amount of pro-Trump banter I also have to overhear...

If you live (i.e. pay taxes) in Philadelphia, drop what you're doing and read this.

The Mormons have officially taken the lead in their longstanding battle with pop stars over who can give their children the weirdest possible names. Congrats, Bryce!

I snuck the phrase "streetlight manifesto" into a piece I wrote yesterday. My 16-year-old, ska-loving self would be so proud. I've come so far!

Barstool sports asshole Dave Portnoy reminds me a lot of Jake Paul... except Jake Paul at least can sort of blame coming of age in our Youtube world for turning him into a braindead narcissist. What's Portnoy's excuse?

A bunch of British plaintiffs from the London Grenfell Tower fire are currently suing in... Philly. I tried to explain why that is. (Hint: it has to do with Philly's propensity for huge jury verdicts.)
