Well that was a fun couple hours. As you may have noticed, AA was hacked for a brief while earlier today by a very thoughtful person who decided to bring his (or her) own soundtrack for the occasion. I can't believe I'm typing these words, but the hacking soundtrack actually turned out to be one of the more popular features in AA's history. (I don't know what that says about this website, but I suppose I'll take it as a compliment?) Just in case you miss the song already, no worries, it's on Youtube for your enjoyment in perpetuity...
Catchy, isn't it? Thankfully, our Twitter page was still in tact as our followers and prospective sleuths offered their theories for the whodunit and
condolences jokes to help us pass the time. Everyone from Pam Ward to Skip Bayless to Craig James and Rob Parker should be treated as suspects moving forward until Deadspin's investigative reporting unit can crack the case...
So, you guys need to shut down for a few. @awfulannouncing— Mr. Sports Journo (@BIGSPORTSWRITER) January 22, 2013
