Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler has been formally charged on misdemeanor counts of battery, criminal mischief and petit theft after a July incident in which he allegedly punched a man who criticized his driving before stomping on his glasses and tossing his recently purchased liquor in a nearby lake.
Spanish swimmer Fernando Alvarez was in Budapest this past weekend for the Masters World Championships, and before he swam in a 200-meter breaststroke heat, he asked swimming’s governing body (FINA) to hold a minute of silence in tribute to the 15 people who were killed last Thursday in a terrorist attack in…
Necessity is the mother of invention, but has no familial relation to good design. Sticking two cups of different sizes together and hoping they don’t spill is medieval (not literally, it’s actually 19th century), and even in modern shakers, the process of getting the shaken beverage out of the shaker is sleight of…

Last year, Manchester United were a team full of hesitant superstars who punched below their weight and only redeemed a shoddy sixth-place finish by winning the Europa League. Expensive debutante Paul Pogba wasn’t the sort of immediate world-beater so many people (unfairly) thought he’d be, and the team lacked the…
