Sports When Sports Shit-Talk Goes Too Far
posted by September 26 at 17:22 PMon
Earlier today, the apparent owner of Seahawkshuddle.com threw up a classy post on his site in anticipation of next week’s Hawks/Giants game titled ” Welcome Giants fans: Wednesday’s Jokes of the Day!”
It looked like this:
and contained oh-so-classy 9/11 jokes like these:
Q: What was the last thing going through Mr. Jones’ head when he was working on the World Trade Center’s 90th floor? A: The 91st floor.
Q: What’s the last thing that went through the minds of the 9/11 jumpers?
A: Their ankles.
Q: What is the New York City Fire Department’s favorite song?
A: “It’s Raining Men”
Q: What’s Al Qaida’s favorite football team?
A: The New York Jets
The Internets went crazy and the story ended up on the Deadspin sports blog and in the New York Daily News. Meanwhile, Giants fans have tracked down the site owner and are undoubtedly on their way over to his house with torches and pitchforks.

What a dick.
