Shaq Attempts The Cookie Face Challenge

You may know it as the cookie face challenge, the face the cookie challenge, the oreo challenge, or some other name. Whatever you call it, Shaq attempted it on the set of Inside the NBA tonight.

Oscar Taveras' Family Posts Photos Of Fan Tributes To Him On Twitter

One of the weird things about the 21st century is what happens to people's social media presence when they die. Facebook pages turn into these sort of weird/morbid/beautiful virtual shrines, places where even years later people go to post and publicly process their loss. Twitter accounts just sort of linger, no longer… » 11/21/14 12:12am Today 12:12am

The Raiders Create A New Definition Of "Excessive Celebration"

The Raiders finally won a game Thursday night, but they wouldn't be the Raiders if it didn't come with a boneheaded, self-inflicted wound. Facing 3rd and 6 from the Oakland 45 with less than a minute left, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was sacked by Raiders linebacker Sio Moore. It was a pretty good play! But then… » 11/20/14 11:52pm Yesterday 11:52pm

Adrian Peterson Gives 90-Minute Interview, Doesn't Say Much

Adrian Peterson has finally broken a two month silence. After he was placed on the exempt/commissioner's permission list on September 17th, he's basically only communicated through bizzaro twitter postings and closed-door hearings. Tonight he spoke with USA Today's Pelissero tonight for a "more than 90-minute"… » 11/20/14 11:15pm Yesterday 11:15pm

Kevin Shattenkirk Blows A Pass, Knocks Over His Goalie, Gives Up Goal

Oof, this is a brutal three seconds for Kevin Shattenkirk. First, his attempt to breakout from behind the net by passing up the middle is foiled by Dale Weise, who picks the pass off. Then, in a rush to block Weise's shot, Shattenkirk knocks over his own goalie, turning what would've been a good goal-scoring… » 11/20/14 10:46pm Yesterday 10:46pm

Shitty Swiss Team Cuts 11 Players After Youth Team Blows Them Out 10-0

FC Grenchen, of Switzerland's fourth division, suck at soccer. In their last nine matches, they've collected all of zero points while shipping 66—yes, 66—goals, 10 of which came at the feet of FC Luzern's youth squad.

Bill Cosby Once Publicly Bullied A Notre Dame Football Player To Tears

​I Went Camping With Bear Grylls, And Survived

"Hey, you want to come camping with Bear?" That's a pretty random email to get on a Thursday morning, and it contained no other details. So, I said yes, packed a bag and hopped on a plane to New Mexico. Here's what happened over the next few days. » 11/20/14 3:16pm Yesterday 3:16pm

Is This Beer Really Worth $200 A Bottle?

It's tricky to argue about what something's worth, because there's rarely an objective answer. A few baseball teams are currently debating whether Pablo Sandoval, a charming fat man who hits very well in the playoffs and a bit above average the rest of the time, is worth $90 million dollars for the next five years.… » 11/20/14 3:09pm Yesterday 3:09pm

Dollar Shave Club Delivers You a Great Shave for a Few Bucks a Month

Thanks to a bunch of industry jargon which is made to confuse you about useless technology, razors are way overpriced. And to even get a razor in your hand, you have to go to the drugstore and track down the employee who hates unlocking the special razor case for you, just as much as you hate asking. But with Dollar… » 11/19/14 10:09am Wednesday 10:09am
