Maybe we should have a Magary thread. I read him and think he’s one of the good guys, but his tropes have definitely gotten old. I don’t know if he’s the progenitor, or just the main torch-bearer, of the Deadspin house style of opinionated writing, but it’s infuriating. I’ll underscore that by putting an exclamation point at the end of this sentence! That should show how charmingly legitimate this line of thought is! I’ll capitalize SEVERAL PHRASES to show I’m WRITING. I’ll talk about food because I like it, but without nuanced or critical commentary. Typical of BIG PUNDIT. I like Magary. He’s not bitter, pretending, or a shadow of what he was. Most of his peers are at least one of those. I think he’s got real legit talent. Not sure how or if that gets expressed in the future, but IMO it’s there.
