With the World Cup approaching, there has been a noticeable uptick in the quantity of soccer-related posts on Deadspin. However, the vast majority of them clearly were lackluster in effort. Every day until the World Cup (and maybe even through it) we’ll break down the previous day’s most half-assed post. If you’re still not clear, check out the first post here.
Join us after the jump for the eighth post in the series.
Total Words: 2434
Original or Repurposed: Original.
Total Estimated Time: Dunno. Depends if Will Leitch made his new bride transcribe the interview on their honeymoon or not.
Comments: This isn’t half-assed. This took effort. It’s almost 2500 words. And sure it’s a straight interview but it’s got expertise and knowledge and jokes and, hell, it even mentions us. Kind of takes the fun out of this. We should have picked the “some dude danced with a drunken wannabe actress” story (also known as “Thursday-Saturday nights” in L.A.).
Half-Assedness (on a 10 scale): 1. Zero is really only a theoretical.
