    Hopefully people will see through the sham and know that's not the REAL Deadpson.

    What is the 'real Deadspin'? Angry edgelords, nihilists and vaguely depressive contrarians?

    Why can't people just read the stories and decide whether they like them? What, people who used to write for the "real" Deadspin, their shit was automatically good because it was pubbed under that banner? Fuck that. There was a lot of good stuff, but a lot of crap. I'll give these guys a chance.

    Ya don't know the writers? The comments are turned off? What a fucking sheep you are. Maybe give the place its due. The last thing the Internet needs is another place for you to comment.

    So no "We were somewhere around Barstow, near the edge of the desert, when the coronavirus began to take hold." ?

    The World Series Of Poker Is A Petri Dish For Disease. Why The Hell Hasn't It Been Cancelled Yet?

    Imagine sitting at a cramped table, for hours at a time, with eight or nine strangers who have traveled from every corner of the world. Some are drinking. Some are eating snacks. Some are coughing, sneezing, picking their nose. It’s a carnival of hands and fingers touching faces and mouths. Intermittently, those same hands and fingers are fondling small items that are then passed back and forth among all of you at the table.

    Sounds like the ultimate breeding ground for a deadly virus?

    Well, welcome to the World Series of Poker.

    The end of May signals the start of the 51st WSOP, an event that runs through July and sends tens of thousands flocking to Las Vegas from more than a 100 countries in hopes of winning a fortune.

    And as the COVID-19 pandemic rages stronger every day, it’s time for officials to admit that this year’s WSOP just can’t happen.

    Imagine looking into the mirror of your motel room before heading over to the MGM to play poker with the sharks.
