Further Into the SI.com Sinkhole

Sports Illustrated’s website is now running a virtual note-for-note copy of ESPN’s Daily Quickie called “Scorecard Daily,” and while it bears no resemblance to the magazine’s still-excellent Scorecard section, it still sucks.

Included on the Scorecard Daily: A link to everybody’s favorite non-blog, as well as a few features (a quote of the day, a mini-poll, etc.) lifted straight from Shanoff. But the biggest embarrassment of all is a link –which spread around the ‘net today and was even mentioned by Simmons- to New York Sports Express’ Mike-Piazza-was-in-“Teen Wolf” April Fool’s joke- from FOUR MONTHS AGO.

I guess you could call it NYSX’s final revenge, as mainstream sports media advertently bought their hoax the week after they called it quits.
