Man Seeks Girls To Host Fantasy Football Draft, Possibly While Topless

Some cool bro is, according to this Craigslist post, looking for two girls to host his upcoming fantasy football draft. All he needs is a couple of girls to run the draft board, serve the fellas some drinks, and, you know, wear a bikini or some sexy lingerie and maybe even pop those tops off—I mean, no pressure,… » 7/30/14 3:52pm 7 minutes ago

Sergey Kovalev's Krusher Workout Takes Nothing For Granted

Sergey Kovalev, the WBO light heavyweight champion of the world, flew into New York last Friday from his training camp in Florida and took a car directly to the Russian part of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

The Best Fake Soccer In The World Is Played Right Here In The USA

The flashing electronic bulletin board on College Avenue read "SOCCER EVENT." Berkeley Police closed off main roads a mile out from California Memorial Stadium an hour before Real Madrid was to play Inter Milan in a fake soccer game as part of the International Champions Cup, a fake soccer tournament. The atmosphere… » 7/30/14 3:24pm 35 minutes ago

Too Much Is Just Enough: Guardians of the Galaxy, Reviewed

1. The best thing about the Marvel movies, to my eyes, is how self-aware they are without ever getting too winking about it. Captain America and Thor are excellent at this, playing off their leads' lunkheaded, uber-wholesome charm, but 2012's The Avengers—still the best Marvel film, and one of the best superhero… » 7/30/14 2:59pm Today 2:59pm

76ers Ask NBA To Delay Anti-Tanking Measures Until They're Done Tanking

A couple weeks back, it was reported that the NBA was attempting to push through changes to its draft lottery system: a re-weighting of the odds that would discourage tanking. The Philadelphia 76ers would reportedly like the NBA to hold on a sec, because they're not finished being terrible. » 7/30/14 2:47pm Today 2:47pm

Arian Foster Gave The Same Answer 11 Times In A 90-Second Interview

Arian Foster formally talked to media today for the first time since last season ended, but he didn't give them anything useful. The Texans running back basically repeated the same answer, about trying to be the best teammate he can be, for a minute and a half before peacing out. Though some Texans beat writers on… » 7/30/14 2:11pm Today 2:11pm

Cubs Catcher Is Winning Pitcher, Scores Winning Run In 16-Inning Game

I do not envy the hardy fans who watched all 6:27 of the game between the 43-63 Rockies and the 44-61 Cubs, including 12 straight scoreless innings. But those who did stick it out saw something rare: Chicago catcher John Baker pitched a scoreless top of the 16th, and became the winning pitcher when he scored the… » 7/30/14 1:28pm Today 1:28pm

They Came Together: The Second-Best Romantic Comedy Spoof Ever

I'm just a guy, sitting in front of a screen, asking it to make me laugh at beautiful, awkward, charming people who are falling in love. The romantic comedy can be a fine way to burn two hours, but it's a silly genre at heart, with its contrived meet-cutes and drawn-out misunderstandings, and also a tough form to… » 7/30/14 1:14pm Today 1:14pm

New, "Grassroots" Pro-Redskins Website Is Run By A PR Firm, Of Course

Redskinsfacts.com, which just launched this month, doesn't hide its position on the team's controversial name.

The Twins Have Apparently Found The Real-Life Sidd Finch

One of the weirdest baseball stories of the year is about Brandon Poulson, a 24-year-old pitching prospect whom the Twins just plucked from the void for the price of $250,000. Nobody's ever heard of Poulson until now, but if the early stories about him are to be believed, he's basically the non-hoax version of Sidd… » 7/30/14 10:26am Today 10:26am

There Is No Explanation For Blowing This Call

This was a trapped ball. It was pretty clear, and indisputably so on replay. Yet umpires upheld their initial ruling of a catch, even after Ron Gardenhire's challenge. My headline up there isn't some huffy hyperbole on just how baffling the call was—it's about how umpires literally didn't give an explanation for how… » 7/30/14 10:07am Today 10:07am
