    If you can point me to an example where Magary used that phrase with literal intent or after the subject of his wrath had been physically injured, I might think you have a point.

    If not, then it’s worth noting that “die in a fire” is pretty much universally understood as being sarcastic. Beyond this, context helps us understand whether it is meant in a friendly or unfriendly way.

    I'm really torn on this. I totally get he has a right to privacy but at the same time he has tons of fans who miss him, wouldn't some type of explanation be better than just this radio silence where people's imaginations start going crazy? I really hope he's ok, I almost always got a kick out of reading him.

    FWIW on the Deadcast released yesterday David Roth (think it was him) said it wasn't anything embarrassing or scandalous.

    David Roth is fucking awesome, BTW. His "Let's Remember Some Guys ..." videos are all really good.

    Roth makes the Deadcast. He’s great on it.

    I wonder if part of the reason Deadspin is being schtum is Magary’s going to write a riotous piece in the future about how he had to go on Deadspin IR for accidentally sitting on some Viking horns while wearing his Adam Thielen jersey or something.

    Well it will certainly make the next annual "Let's see what we got stuck in our rectums" column more interesting.

    ALIVE, though the fact that he may think it's currently "evening" in Manhattan is worrying.

    He tweeted a bit about what happened to him (said he was drinking heavily, started "choking on his own blood," needed surgery on his neck to fix the problem, lost consciousness for a week) but has now deleted them.

    Now this has taken an odd turn:

    It’s all been odd, frankly. He’s a public figure, we’re not owed anything I get that but the longer it goes without anyone saying what happened to him the weirder it’s going to get.

    Just reading the tea leaves, I wonder if there might be some kind of legal liability tied up in what happened, what his condition was etc.

    Sounds to me like lawyers are involved and are getting in the way of anybody saying anything.

    Really? To me it just sounds kind of ominous, like Drew did something to himself :(
