Sports? Did someone say "sports," or did we just blow a tire? No, we distinctly heard, "sports," and it's coming from the Gawker home office. Yep, we were right. Today, Gawker's launching its newest property, a sports-related blog called Deadspin. It's helmed by Will Leitch, author of the "Life as a Loser" series that once ran on The Black Table (and now resides in a corresponding tome), which helped us through a few years of underemployment and a skablillion rounds of dot-com layoffs without resorting to either murder or defenestration. Deadspin is going live today, so do us a favor, sports fans, and go slap Will's newborn a few times. And ask him about his knuckleball, it's the best in the business.
