Spanish sports paper Mundo Deportivo has reportedly learned who will win the next Ballon d’Or about, a week before the scheduled official announcement. It’s a tad unfortunate that a reported leak of this magnitude came this year, because MD’s info says what everyone already knew: Cristiano Ronaldo will win it.
The New York Jets still have four games left to play, but last night’s no-show against the Colts was an effective and fitting end to their season. The Jets are 3-9 now, and whatever combination of luck and competence that got them to a 10-6 record last season is nowhere to be found.
Ronald Gasser, the man who admitted to shooting and killing former NFL player Joe McKnight in an apparent road rage incident, has been arrested on a count of manslaughter. He is being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, according to the online inmate search.
The first goal in Tottenham Hotspur’s (sorely necessary) rout of Swansea City this weekend was scored by Harry Kane—a penalty kick awarded in the 39th minute, after Dele Alli went down in the box under a challenge from Kyle Naughton. It was, as even the most loyal Spurs supporter can admit, a dive.
From multiple media reports, the Nationals appear to be the team most likely to land White Sox ace Chris Sale in a trade this offseason—possibly as soon as this week’s Winter Meetings. The only thing that might scuttle the deal? If the Nats get Andrew McCutchen instead.
Warm weather may seem a long way off, but it’ll be here before you know it, and you can be ready to take full advantage with Amazon’s big hammock deal.
What was most striking about Klay Thompson’s 60-point beatdown of the Indiana Pacers tonight was how easy it all was. The Warriors already had one of the best offenses in NBA history last season and they replaced their worst starter with a former MVP during the offseason, so the amount of available space that their…
The Warriors are on pace to finish the season with the best offensive efficiency in NBA history, thanks primarily to the pyrotechnical shooting prowess of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. Klay Thompson started the season out slowly, but tonight he broke all the way out and scored 40 points in the first half of the…
Idiots On The Field once again stormed a lousy Monday Night Football game tonight, which means their eventual punishment at the arms of New Jersey state troopers got called live on Westwood One radio by Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason.
The Portland Hale Blazers are playing their only game of the year in Chicago tonight, so the odd mistake of nomenclature is forgivable. Meyers Leonard was misidentified as “Miles” (perhaps it was “Myles?”) tonight and he loudly offered a correction.
Russell Westbrook notched his sixth straight triple double tonight against the Hawks, but the best highlight from that game comes courtesy of Victor Oladipo, who climbed Mt. Howard and returned with a scalp.
The Falcons lost to the Chiefs yesterday thanks to a rock-dumb two-point play that they had no need to take. Falcons fan Bomani Jones went off on the team this afternoon on Highly Questionable and made a pretty convincing case that the Falcons are cursed losers who exist to torture their fans. In case you thought the…
The Cleveland Cavaliers are visiting New York this week to play the Knicks on Wednesday, but LeBron James and a few other Cavaliers players will not be staying at a Trump-branded hotel in Manhattan, per reports from ESPN and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Cavs were not among the three teams who decided to stop…
Wintertime in Wisconsin is a harsh season for all, including drunken criminals whose schemes may end up foiled by the unforgiving climate. Nathan Tyler Meleski knows the pain.
Some members of Russia’s parliament have sent a letter to the state communications oversight agency, alleging FIFA 17's support of a recent LGBT-friendly initiative in England breaks Russia’s “gay propaganda law”.
Television’s best show about murderous sex robots, HBO’s Westworld, wrapped up its debut season last night in the way most prestige TV shows do. Characters died, twists were revealed, and the season ended on a somewhat ambiguous note.
