On April 13, Ludacris performed for 13 minutes at Georgia’s spring game, and was paid $65,000 for it. His contract also included a pretty great rider, which you can read it full at the bottom of this post. It included condoms, juice boxes, and a couple of bottle of Ludacris’s own brand of cognac, and Georgia athletics…
After last night’s loss to the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were asked if they think Steph Curry is an underrated defender. Westbrook reacted like he’d just been asked if he likes to shop at T.J. Maxx.
The Penguins are back in the Finals after their 2-1 Game 7 win over Tampa, but they are not the same old Penguins you love to hate. (But you can hate ‘em anyway.)
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.

We didn’t blog this yesterday, but, hey, is there ever a bad time to giggle at Barry Bonds and his cute tiny dog?
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Bong bong.
According to multiple reports, the Houston Rockets will hire Mike D’Antoni to be their new head coach.
It’s official now: Cristiano Ronaldo’s son already has the natural impulses of a seasoned troll, at only five years old. We knew about his huge fandom of Ronaldo’s biggest rival, Lionel Messi, we’ve seen him tweak his grandma along those same lines, and we’re pretty confident Junior knew what he was doing when he told…
Major League Baseball announced today that Braves outfielder Hector Olivera has been suspended without pay through August 1, for violating the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

In February, SB Nation published “Who Is Daniel Holtzclaw?,” a lengthy profile of a college football player turned cop turned convicted serial rapist. The story, by freelancer Jeff Arnold and edited by Glenn Stout, was so roundly criticized for showing one-sided sympathy to Holtzclaw that it was deleted within hours…
