In a lawsuit filed today in California Superior Court, a former member of the United States gymnastics team alleged that Martha and Bela Karolyi (legendary USA Gymnastics coaches) and others helped create a “regime of intimidation” and abuse that allowed Dr. Larry Nassar to sexually abuse a series of young gymnasts.…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Stay warm.
I am inconsolable. My body is wrapped around the base of the toilet in my office’s handicapped bathroom stall heaving and shaking. What do you do when you’ve lost your best friend?
Man, Cristiano Ronaldo sure does love him some Cristiano Ronaldo. From representations of his well-chiseled body to his facially-imprecise but amply-bedicked statue, to a glorified home movie disguised as a feature film, and even to his own, apparently delicious crotch, it’s long been evident that Ronaldo takes…
Smash Mouth—the house band from hit 2001 film Shrek—are prominent, prolific Twitter users who are unafraid to go to the mattresses to correct the record if you spread falsehoods online. The San Jose, Calif. natives are also, as it turns out, big 49ers fans who count themselves among the ever-dwindling number of Trent…
Well, goddamn it, our big brawny boy got some bad news today. After playing hero in the first two games of the World Series, Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber was informed by doctors today that his surgically repaired knee is still not healthy enough for him to play in the field.
The deal to provide the Oakland Raiders with a record $750 million in public money toward a new stadium in Las Vegas is done. But the rich assholes who want to savor the spoils still have a lot to play for.
As the internet mutates, so does the way we consume highlights of sick slams, huge homers, and stuff that happens in football. If YouTube killed SportsCenter and GIFs closed the casket, then Vine danced on its grave.
This weekend, as you may have heard, some shit-brained Valencia fan threw a bottle at some Barcelona players because he was mad they beat his team. As you also might’ve learned, this was apparently mostly the players’ fault, at least according to such important and powerful figures in Spanish soccer as La Liga’s…
There have always been at least two Destinys. There’s the Destiny that most people play, where you fly around the galaxy with your friends, blowing up aliens and carefully managing your vault space. Then there’s competitive Destiny, where players go headshot-to-headshot to see who’s deadliest.
“The cyber,” as Donald J. Trump calls it, has been an unrelenting issue in a presidential election marked by politically motivated hacks, massive DDoS attacks, and email kerfuffles. With technology as a focal point, virtually every part of the political process has been brought into the scrum, including voting.
Desiigner, a popular rapper whose song “Panda” hit No. 1 on the charts despite having only one verse, performed at halftime of the Philadelphia 76ers’ season opener. He did what he does during all of his live performances—which is to say he made a lot of weird noises and spazzed out and never really got around to…
Jennifer Frey drank herself to death.
If your car’s wiper blades have seen better days, Amazon’s running a new promotion on Rain-X Latitude replacements, for a limited time.
The app Vine is on its deathbed, which made me think about that Vine where that kid crosses over a baby on a basketball court. Maybe you’ve forgotten about Vine :( But now you remember it. Let’s remember some other Vines:
Donald Trump mega-donor Shalabh Kumar has posted an ad in which the Trump himself speaks Hindi. In fact, the deflated egg sac emits just a few words before the video cuts ahead, suggesting that he couldn’t muster five words in a row, one of which was his own name.
