I read this the other day, a throwaway line that made me do a double take: The Cubs have never won an NLCS. Well, sure they haven’t. League championship series have only been around since 1969, and the Cubs haven’t been to a World Series since 1945. It’s a useless, obvious bit of trivia—barely a factoid—but it’s a…

The NFL announced this afternoon that they’d be reopening their investigation regarding Josh Brown’s 2015 domestic violence arrest. In their announcement, the NFL blamed the King County (Wash.)

If you don’t want to see a hockey player lose a chunk of his ear, don’t watch this video, because it features a hockey player losing a chunk of his ear. It’s not graphic, but Daniel Winnik does end it with less total ears than he started with.
Fred Warner picked off a Brett Rypien pass and returned it 59 yards to give BYU its first touchdown of the night against Boise State, and he did so with so much flair it required a lengthy replay review—one that, eventually, upheld the play.
Here’s a good one from the Clinton email leaks. Before a February campaign event in Birmingham, Al., a Hillary Clinton campaign staffer wrote a “Yo mama” joke into the speech, one which was eventually cut.
Josh Brown will not travel with the New York Giants to London for their game against the Rams this weekend. In a statement released today, the team said that they “remain supportive of Josh and his efforts,” but would “revisit” his case after the London game.

The Los Angeles Sparks took down the mighty Minnesota Lynx in a wild Game 5 this evening to win the franchise’s third championship.

Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda recently got out of the hospital in time to attend Game 3 of the NLCS. He’s at Game 5 tonight, sitting next to Bobby Valentine, who was nice enough to assist him with a stray bit of food.
The latest scandal out of Donald Trump’s campaign: Possible lemonade theft. It appears that Eric Trump, one of his five children, put lemonade in a water cup at an In-N-Out burger, which the restaurant frowns upon.
You’d think that the appearance of Skyrim in the trailer for Nintendo’s next gaming machine today would confirm that, oh, perhaps, Skyrim is coming to Nintendo’s next gaming machine. Not necessarily.
This, my friends, is a pretty goddamn special basketball highlight.
Even before yesterday’s release of documents by the sheriff’s office in King County, Wash. in which New York Giants kicker Josh Brown admits in his own words that he abused his then-wife Molly, there was very similar evidence in his divorce file—a publicly available document that anyone could get. A month ago, in a…
