    As of 10 a.m., these were the stories posted, in order from top to bottom, on Deadspin (a day after Auburn-Alabama, Nevada-Boise, Oregon-Arizona, etc.)

    1. Bunch of Nevada fans flipping the bird.

    2. Two New Zealand teenagers rescued after begin adrift in the ocean.

    3. High School football players cutting a dance video.

    4. Dominican baseball prospect Felix Pie throwing a tantrum in a Winter League game.

    5. Someone with a bloody shirt hugging his grandmother.

    6. Something about a girl giving a guy a hummer in the guy's girlfriend's bathroom.

    7. Other items: a girl so drunk she crapped her pants and something about an Asian guy and a handjob.

    A.J. and Tommy ... you guys suck very badly these days.

    I get the irreverent frat-boy humor take on everything. But seriously?

    They rarely post anything on the weekends. Wait until Monday if you're looking for their take on this weekend.

    Then who's posting all the stories on blow jobs, hand jobs, objects inserted in rectums and girls doing No. 2 in their pants?

    That's part of their series of high school reunion horror stories. (Well, not the rectal object one.) It's definitely not sports related, but those stories were part of a series, not just random tidbits.

    Sorry, hondo. But it's appropriate. If you object to this kind of stuff, might as well not read Deadspin.

    Apropos of nothing except that it's on Deadspin, but this is a fucked up story:

  7. I can get my sports reaction stuff from anywhere, I go to Deadspin for the stuff that's unusual. I look forward to the great stories in drunken hookup failure every Friday. It's nice to read something different that makes me laugh sometimes. You don't like it, don't read it. Read something more serious, like anything on SportsJournalists.com.

    Complaining about the frat boy humor on Deadspin is like complaining the food is shitty at McDonalds. It takes a special kind of...person...to do it.

    Also, Felix Pie hasn't been a prospect since 2007. JFC. Please play on the computer only in the presence of a coherent adult, R.A.

    It's a different Felix Pie, I think, besides the former Cubs prospect.
