As you likely know, the 100th running of the Indy 500 is just about to happen, and that’s a big deal. Even if we all solemnly agree that this centennial is indeed a Big Deal, there’s still many upstanding gearheads who may be confused about the differences between the two best-known open-wheel racing series. Let’s see…
South African sports scientist Ross Tucker and transgender medical physicist Joanna Harper have written a fascinating piece on women’s sports, and the current lack of any limits on testosterone levels in female track and field athletes. This issue is likely to be one of the most controversial and important discussions…
If you’re gonna try to roast the Spelling Bee for being soft, the worst sin you can commit is bringing that weak shit (noun: substandard effort or soft response, e.g. “Kevin liked the Warriors, but they lost because they brought that weak shit.”).
Above is a local news story about some rude bears barging into people’s homes to look for post-hibernation snacks. There are good bears in the clip, but none better than this one right here:
Steven Kruijswijk took a three minute lead into the the final weekend of the Giro d’Italia—the second-biggest stage race in the world after the Tour de France—which looked like a fairly safe lead over Colombian sparkplug Esteban Chaves and mopey Sicilian Vincenzo Nibali (another minute and a half behind Chaves). Both…
Bryce Harper and Danny Espinosa each socked home runs Thursday night as the Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1.
In 2011, the most awful scandal in the history of college athletics was exposed when it was revealed that Jerry Sandusky, a longtime coach at Penn State, had groomed and sexually abused teenage boys in the locker room of the school’s hallowed football stadium over a period decades, and that further the abuse had been…
If you were a time traveler trying to determine, for some reason, what car culture was like in America in any given year, you could pretty much use the contemporaneous Indy 500 pace car as your one data point and come to some pretty reasonable conclusions.
It’s a holiday Friday and I don’t really have the energy or the inclination to write a whole postmortem, but the Lightning will be fine. (They shouldn’t re-sign Stamkos though.) Discuss it here!
On April 13, Ludacris performed for 13 minutes at Georgia’s spring game, and was paid $65,000 for it. His contract also included a pretty great rider, which you can read it full at the bottom of this post. It included condoms, juice boxes, and a couple of bottle of Ludacris’s own brand of cognac, and Georgia athletics…
After last night’s loss to the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were asked if they think Steph Curry is an underrated defender. Westbrook reacted like he’d just been asked if he likes to shop at T.J. Maxx.
The Penguins are back in the Finals after their 2-1 Game 7 win over Tampa, but they are not the same old Penguins you love to hate. (But you can hate ‘em anyway.)
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It was simple enough to write the Warriors off when they were down 3-1, on the brink of elimination (only nine teams have ever come back from such a deficit), but they are not dead yet. The Thunder effectively blitzed them into submission in both games in Oklahoma City, and while Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant…
Miami beat North Carolina State tonight in ACC Tournament action, thanks to Edgar Michelangeli’s late homer. He really savored it, too—and caused a bit of a stir.
Art Briles was fired from Baylor today following an investigation into what was, at best, his football program’s systemic negligence regarding repeated sexual-assault accusations. Linebacker Taylor Young mounted a convoluted defense of Briles earlier today, and more have since rushed to wax nostalgic.
