Here's The Official Movie Of Diego Maradona's 1986 World Cup

Diego Maradona shimmies and jukes. He drags the ball with him. The camera pans from his feet to his face, tracking him as he goes. Is he heading toward the goal or dribbling harmlessly across the field? I can't tell, and neither can the English defenders he slides by so easily. The goalkeeper is nothing more than a… » 7/11/14 1:46pm 28 minutes ago

Clayton Kershaw Was Unreal Over His 41-Inning Scoreless Streak

Until the sixth inning of last night's game against the Padres, Clayton Kershaw hadn't allowed a run since June 13. The Dodgers lefty spun one of the greatest nine-inning games ever pitched in his June 18 no-hitter against the Rockies, and then just continued to reel off scoreless gems against the Royals, Cardinals,… » 7/11/14 12:13pm Today 12:13pm

Silent Video Of LeBron And Wade Talking Is A Generation's Zapruder Film

That LeBron James and Dwyane Wade flew back to Miami after James's Vegas basketball camp is likely not a major clue to either's free agency decisions (Miami is where their stuff is).

How Did Metallica Ever Survive Some Kind Of Monster?

Like a lot of boys growing up in the early 1990s, I was fascinated by the hard-rock band Metallica. What drew me was no mystery. They were dark and powerful and commanded the respect of millions. I was nine and lived in fear of having to undress for swim PE. The gap between us was impossible. For years, I didn't even… » 7/11/14 10:52am Today 10:52am

Denver Post Columnist Writes The Hottest LeBron Take Ever

In a world where even Dan Shaughnessy will hedge against his own stupidity, we desperately need a local newspaper columnist who isn't afraid to dish out the kind of moral rectitude and one-sentence KABOOM paragraphs that will put the sporting world back on the path to righteousness. We need a hero. We need the… » 7/11/14 10:24am Today 10:24am

Report: Maybe Dan Gilbert Shouldn't Have Written That Letter

For a while there yesterday, it felt like LeBron-to-Cleveland was a fait accompli—even the Cavs seemed to feel that way, reportedly thanks to Rich Paul pouring honey in their ears. But now it's being reported that if LeBron James is having second thoughts, it's because of Dan Gilbert's petulant Comic Sans letter of… » 7/11/14 9:56am Today 9:56am

I Can't Stop Watching This Agonized Mets Fan's Performative Suffering

After Juan Lagares popped out in foul territory with two men on against the Braves, this guy just couldn't handle the Mets' inability to score. The team was 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position in a 3-1 loss Thursday night, with nine runners left on base, and the man in the front row was fed up. We have likely all… » 7/11/14 9:50am Today 9:50am
