New York Press's Sister Sports Paper Disappears

Last week, Avalon Equity Partners shut down New York Sports Express. "There was a struggle, and in the end someone in the accounting department reached for a knife," Matt Taibbi writes in New York Press, an AAN-member paper that is also owned by Avalon. The Express dared to take sports not too seriously, Taibbi writes, and Express editor Spike Vrusho recognized "that Karim Garcia, while not a very good baseball player, was a comic gold mine and needed to be in print as much as possible."
