Arianna Huffington Still Knows Very Little About Football

During Tuesday night's farewell party at Catch Roof, The Huffington Post co-founder comically recalled the AOL deal.

The day after Super Bowl XLV, Feb. 7, 2011, The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta described AOL’s deal to acquire The Huffington Post as “Tim Armstrong’s Hail Mary Pass.” That description was comically recalled Tuesday night by Arianna Huffington as she bid her official farewell to staff at a party hosted at Catch Roof. Huffington is moving on to Thrive, while her game-changing content company now belongs to Verizon.
