Welcome to your inaugural Heading for the Exits Open Thread! (Not including the days that Deadspin’s servers crashed and we ran “Deadspin Down All Night to help them out, of course)
Up until now, we didn’t want to step on any toes in the fiercely-competitive open-thread market, so we waited until the “discussion well” ran dry over at MKMUB prior to doing this. Marv Skeevy was the man running the show over at MKMUB, and he deserves a shout-out for all of his efforts over there. We know first hand that blogging isn’t easy, and he did one hell of a job of keeping that place alive far beyond its projected life expectancy. Marv, we salute you.
For the uninitiated, an open thread is a forum for our readers to chat about anything that they feel like discussing throughout the day. We will almost always hand pick some type of a YouTube video or song for your entertainment, and will try to come up with a daily topic for you to get the conversation rolling as well. These topics will almost certainly be very, very dumb. We tweeted a link to this one out, but moving forward, we will not be doing so.
We have previously mentioned that “Heading for the Exits is not a Deadspin Blog.” This still holds true. While most of our readers (Love you guys!!) do come from Deadspin, there is no reason to limit your conversation topics to the activities over there. That said, we don’t really care what you guys talk about, so if something over there is driving you bonkers, feel free to bring it up, especially if it’s in the form of a poorly-constructed, run-on sentence.
Here we go…
Today’s Topic (courtesy of Universal Enveloping Algebra): “What about how cool BH’s Windows Phone is? Look at me, I can send e-mail from my Windows Phone!”
Feel free to tell us how cool your phone is as well.
The floor is yours.
