Because we are sick in the head, we were curious what would happen if we took today’s episode of Pardon the Interruption and ran it through Snapchat’s face swap filter. The results are, as you might expect, horrifying.
Notice anything strange about Letsrun’s listing of the world-leading performances from last weekend?
Ridiculously cheap underwear, the new best coffee maker, and Anker’s new robot vacuum kick off today’s best deals.

On top of the simple coup that was Liverpool—a hobbled giant with more history and entitlement-fueled expectations than recent glory or near-term promise—nabbing one of the handful of truly special managers in the game, a big part of what made hiring Jürgen Klopp to take over at Anfield such a tantalizing prospect was…
We all got shit going on, you know? Too much shit, if you ask me. I was on vacation last week, and I’ve spent most of this week sighing and thinking, “Whaaaaat is it with all this shit I got going on???”
If you’ve ever heard Jack White go through his marimba phase, or seen a dude waltz onto a subway car holding a djembe drum, you know there are some pretty goddamn pretentious instruments out there.

We’re joined in the comments by Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus and Ben Lindbergh of ESPN, authors of the fantastic new book The Only Rule Is It Has To Work. (You can read an excerpt here.) The idea here is simple—the two sabermetrically-inclined writers were given control of baseball operations for the Sonoma…
Yo dawg, Captain America: Civil War heard that you like superhero movies, so it installed several pleasantly extraneous superhero movies in your superhero movie so you could watch more superhero movies during your superhero movie. It is the Pizza Box, the Double Down, the Quesarito of the form. Prepare to unhinge…
I am so happy, you guys. I have, no fooling, been looking forward to this day for a full year. It is the morning after the WHL Bantam Draft, and just like last year, the draft class is replete with a bunch of 14- and 15-year-olds with names like Vine stars.
