Foot Fetish


Not since White Boy's escapades on I Love NY has so much attention been paid on a person's toes.

After Deadspin editor emeritus Will Leith posted the above picture on his Tumblr page with the caption "ONE FOOT DOWN! ONE FOOT DOWN!," Politico's Ben Smith linked it with the text "The Cardinals were robbed."

Smith's post prompted faithful HHR reader Christian Jones to fire him off the following email, which he forwarded us (and Smith subsequently ended up posting):
Mr Smith:

You posted a disingenuous photo today on your blog from a Mr. Leitch and claimed that the Cardinals were "robbed." You clearly linked to said photo without doing any fact checking. This is simply unacceptable and unbecoming of a journalist.

I demand a correction.

Please click see the below link and see that Holmes did have two feet in bounds and on the ground with possession of the ball.

Mr Leitch is a Cardinals partisan and you should not be spreading his lies.

You need to do a better job of fact checking, Sir.

Unless you make a correction I am done with your second rate blog.

Sincerely,

Christian Jones

touchdown.

I believe that the play stolen prior to the first half's two minute warning is even more the 'smoking gun'.

i came here just to read the comments, but when my word verification was "cocklust" i had to say something... that's seriously messed up. unless you're talking about how 60% of the "thighs of the week" think of me... ok, that's just a lie.
