Free agent and former Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo, 28, was banned from the NBA for violating the league’s anti-drug program. Mayo can apply for reinstatement in two years.
The Cleveland Indians are on one hell of a hot streak. They went 22-6 in the month of June, and tied a franchise record 13-game winning streak with last night’s victory over the Blue Jays. They beat the Jays the way they’ve been beating a lot of teams lately, by sending most of the batters who come to the plate right…
St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny got tossed from the game Thursday as the Kansas City Royals beat St. Louis, 4-2.
Yesterday’s Portugal-Poland match started in surprisingly auspicious fashion, considering it was a match between two teams with only a passing interest in doing anything fun or exciting in an effort to go out and win. Poland’s Robert Lewandowski scored the game’s first goal less than two minutes after the opening…
One of the scariest moments for a wrestler is the rare occasion when a fan decides to get involved. You never know what they’re going to do—just last month one woman pulled a gun on a heel at a small indy show in Georgia—and the wrestler’s response is universal: subdue them by any means necessary.
Are you ready for the return of Linsanity? Are you ready for... BrookLinsanity?! Sorry. I’m sorry.
Imagine training every day of your life for one big moment, only to find that the moment will be marred by wading through shit-infested water. That’s exactly what members of the US Olympic rowing team will feel when they head into the polluted waters of Rio de Janeiro at the 2016 Olympics. The team will be competing…
Donald Trump, a stack of 64 slices of American cheese that has been left out on the counter too long, has some more questions to answer about his charitable efforts. This one involves using money donated to his own nonprofit to win a charity auction for some signed Tim Tebow gear.
I did not stay up for the start of NBA free agency. I never do, and sometimes I regret it (like last year’s truly incredible DeAndre Jordan saga), but there really is no reason it has to start at midnight. It could start at 9 a.m., or noon (like the NHL will today), or 4 in the afternoon, and it would be just as wild,…
Timofey Mozgov is champion. Now, Mozgov is a free agent and the man just got paid. According to Woj, the Los Angeles Lakers kicked off their summer of whiffing at free agents by quickly getting into “serious talks” with Mozgov. Those serious talks turned into a four year, $64 million deal.
Alexis Sanchez had to leave the Copa America final before the penalty shootout on account of Gabriel Mercado caught him with a nasty tackle that left him unable to play past the 104th minute. Chile won anyway, thanks to Messi’s chokejob, but Alexis’ ankle has ballooned up and it looks like the podiatric equivalent of…
It’s almost been a year since Jason Pierre-Paul blew his hand up with a firework. This weekend, you, me, and millions of other shitheads will set off all manner of small explosives and undoubtedly, some will maim themselves in the process.
Yoenis Cespedes went all astronomical this evening against John Lackey. I am convinced this baseball was headed up out of the ballpark to join the Sky Gods in baseball heaven (this is where stars come from, FYI), but sadly, they rejected Cespedes’ offering and sent it to the third deck.
Duron Carter aimed for the football version of a Gordie Howe hat trick after the former Ohio State Buckeye (and, briefly, Indianapolis Colt) caught a touchdown pass for the Alouettes before knocking down an Ottawa coach and starting a brawl that resulted in a very Canadian string of penalties.
