Yeah, I think Chart Party is the official SB Nation video work. Regardless, I hope he never stops producing either video series.

Ah yeah, I see what you meant now. I read your post incorrectly. Yeah, as far as I know it is just Jon being Jon, humanity perfected.

you literally think a person saying their NBA team of choice being better than the fucking 76ers is a 'schtick'

a literal thing you think.

Matt Ufford was one of the SBNation / Vox people let go yesterday. I enjoyed his stuff from the KSK days.

Yeah this sucks, I know Uffsides was pretty lame but it was lame in an endearing way.

I'm pretty sure Dan Rubenstein (who also does The Solid Verbal outside of SBN) was one of the people let go but he hasn't said anything about it on Twitter yet

The Vox Media stuff is always weird because Vox.com has like a daily article up about greedy CEOs laying off people to line their pockets with more money.

When the layoffs happened a bunch of writers on Vox.com had to rush to Twitter to explain "none of us on Vox.com were fired so you can still pretend we're the good guys" completely ignoring their company is one of the most exploitative in all of media.
