Let's just hope that exposure to Deadspin and its readers doesn't cause Silver to despair of writing about sports the way certain politics-themed websites caused him to be frustrated with writing about elections.

One more reason to love the guy- he brought up Sharknado while answering a question about climate change. :)
That first answer about the average Deadspin reader's lifespan was gold. If that's what we can expect at the new 538, bring it on.
