Warning: Read at your own risk.
But “rock and roll” no longer has that ecumenical connotation anywhere else in our culture. Nobody says, “The youth of today are in love with rock-and-roll artists like Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars,” just as “jazz” is no longer cultural shorthand for horniness and shooting heroin. In 2015, “rock and roll” is practically synonymous with folk music.

They already wrote what they plan to on "deflategate" other than that not much that they would write about has happened. If something substantial happens that needs more than the main page ESPN writeup someone might do a piece on it.Doug Beerabelli said:As far as I could tell, not a single NFL story on the site today. Because nothing noteworthy has been happening lately with the Shield.

Of the four major American sports only one is not playing and half of them are in their playoffs. You are surprised that the one not playing has no story?
Only 1 story is, and there isn't really that much to write about it.johnmd20 said:
Good point. It's not like the NFL is in the news or anything.
They don't talk to Deadspin for four years under Simmons and now they're leaking like a sieve. Job uncertainty sucks. I've found a lot of writers and podcasters I enjoy through Grantland, and I hope they are able to land on their feet, whatever happens to the site.Detts said:
