Will Leitch, founder and editor of Deadspin, has just announced he is stepping down as its editor. Blogtopia is suddenly deprived of one of our fearless leaders, if not the fearless leader.
I have made no secret of my man-crush for Leitch. Having met him in person, having exchanged emails, I can vouch for the sincerity and niceness of the dude, despite his bizarre love of the Arizona Cardinals. I've always said that FHF was started because there was no Habs blog "in the best Deadspin tradition." We only hope to have tried to meet the quality standard Leitch has set for the rest of us.
God speed Will, and good luck.
