On behalf of all Barcelona faithful, I’d like to first wish a sincere congratulations to goalkeeper extraordinaire Claudio Bravo and Manchester City for finally sealing their long-awaited union:
Representatives from Majestic Reality and the Las Vegas Sands casino company, the two groups looking to bring the Oakland Raiders and a brand new NFL stadium to Las Vegas, made their pitch to an oversight committee last night. The proposed stadium would cost $1.9 billion to build, and stadium proponents are asking for…
It’s a sheep! Interrupting a game. It’s there because earlier there was a monkey riding a dog herding it. Don’t ask questions; it’s minor league baseball.
We have seen this before:
Matt Moore, who was traded to the Giants earlier this month from the Tampa Bay Rays, took a no-hit bid as close as he possibly could before it got dashed at the last second. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Corey Seager sent a flare into right field on Moore’s 133rd pitch. It landed squarely between Gorkys…
As eventually doomed runs of Idiots On The Field go, these dudes’ miracle jaunt all the way across the outfield, through stadium security, and into the bleachers was pretty damn spectacular.
Stephen Bannon, erstwhile Breitbart shitbag, recently took over as campaign chief for Donald Trump after a series of power struggles cost Trump’s first two campaign managers their jobs. A little more than a week after Bannon’s new job was announced, Politico published a 1996 police report from when Bannon’s ex-wife…
Jason Kipnis turned a nice little double play for the Indians this evening, which started with tagging out a quickly approaching Rougned Odor. Kipnis got the forceout, made the throw under pressure, then came up ready to scrap with the known punch enthusiast. Well, not really.
Somewhere deep in the Italian countryside, a group of adults lie in wait, preparing for the Hide-And-Seek World Championship.
The alt-right is a fringe political movement, primarily concerned (as far as we can tell) with disseminating Trumpism via memes. Their favorite is Pepe the frog. In her speech denouncing these internet users this afternoon in Reno, Nevada, Hillary Clinton sadly did not say the words “meme” or “Pepe.” This is somewhat…
Nobody has ever robbed a home run at the Marlins’ stadium, until this evening, when Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson got all the way up to snatch one away from Christian Yelich.
Are you seated? Are you prepared to hear the rawest, truest sabermetrics take of all time from Blue Jays scout Steve Springer?
During Stage 4 of the Vuelta a España, the peloton ran over someone’s dick. I think they were okay with it.
This is a barren time in the sports calendar. We are in a desolate trough between the international intrigue of the Olympics and the drama and nonsense of football season. I’m goddamn bored. Coincidentally, the National Parks Service turns 100 years old today. Unlike late August, the National Parks are good, and as…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a bad record Rudy van Gelder produced, and I doubt anyone else has, either.
In a baffling move, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded away Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher, A.J. Ellis (as well as a pitching prospect and player to be named later), in exchange for Carlos Ruiz of the Philadelphia Phillies.
