Please Welcome Emma Carmichael, Editor of The Hairpin

Emma Carmichael—recession-era graduate, hip hop enthusiast, most recently managing editor of Deadspin, and previously managing editor of Gawker—will become the editor of The Hairpin beginning next Wednesday. She plans to turn the site into a field hockey fan forum. Lots of gifs of amazing goals. Kidding! No, it's mostly just NASCAR coverage from here on out. And what of trusty Hairpin founder Edith Zimmerman? She will take a little break and then return to continue making The Hairpin the Special People's Club that it is. Questions? Ask them in the comments over there. Just not here. We're trying to keep this a safe space. (Yes, we're being very cavalier about this, but we're super excited and we love Emma like maybe literally to death.)

Anyway, here is a long conversation between Edith and Emma. Or "New Edith" and "Old Emma" as we have been calling them.

Welcome, Emma! I am supportive of any and all increased coverage of Hockey throughout the Awl's vast media kingdom. Here are some story ideas to get you started. Feel free to use all of them!

The Wirecutter-Which ice-scheduling app is the most accurate? Why does mapquest always fuck up rink locations in Northern Minnesota? Which fake ice is the best for summer training in the basement?

The Hairpin-How to accessorize your NorthFace Jacket? How high is too high, when it comes to mom hair? Which professional players have the best flow? How to get rid of hockey bag stench.

The Billfold-How many jobs do you have to work to pay for your kid's hockey.

The Awl-Hockey Haiku Tuesday.

Splitsider-Listicle of Top 10 best lines from Slapshot (This is a trick one. They're all the best).

@hockeymom I'm SO interested in resurrecting Behrle's "Game Misconduct" column. Call me!
