I’m happy to announce today that Rick Chandler will be joining SbB as a full-time contributor. Along with Will Leitch, Rick launched DEADSPIN in 2005 and quickly helped turn it into the sports blogging powerhouse we all know and love today.
(I was, as you would expect, a little less subtle)
I’ve long been a huge fan of Rick’s work, and his maddeningly consistent ability to turn a phrase (see above). Reading his daily work also convinced me that we needed to increase the quality of editorial at SbB, which entailed bringing in numerous talent contributors - and scaling back my writing contribution.
So if somehow you weren’t a fan of Rick before, you should be now!
We won’t have Rick up and running on the site until next week, as we need a couple days to fleabomb his future SbB basement dwelling. (And yes, he’s been already been tipped off about the faint urine smell.)
