How Deadspin Fucked Up The Cory Gardner Story

On Wednesday, Deadspin published a story questioning the football bona fides of U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, a Republican who's running for the Colorado Senate seat currently occupied by Democrat Mark Udall. We fucked up. After the story was published, the main source we'd relied on reversed himself on a key point, and… » 10/16/14 3:01pm 10/16/14 3:01pm

We were good this week, and when we weren't good we were quite stupid, and when we were neither we were utterly fucking insane.

I remember it well, and I also remember wondering why people weren't making any fuss over it. The context here is that Beane is in the middle of swinging a deal that'll net him the immortal Ricardo Rincon.
