This month’s GQ cover story on New York Jets star Mark Sanchez (not online in full) mentions that “Sanchez hit the front page when a 17-year-old high school student from Connecticut told a gossipy sports site that she met him in a nightclub and they went on a date.” The unnamed “gossipy sports site,” Deadspin, published photos of the inside of Mr. Sanchez’s house (including the blown-up “Broadway Schmo” Daily News cover mentioned in the GQ cover profile) purportedly taken by the 17-year-old. Mr. Sanchez declines to comment on the story.

Don’t despair, Deadspin readers–the gossipy sports site is mentioned in the issue, in the author bio beneath a profile of Philadelphia Eagles star Michael Vick written by the site’s founding editor Will Leitch.
