Rejoice! Alonzo Mourning Says "Who Wants To Sex Mutombo?" Happened!

Today is a great day! It's been almost a year since Dikembe Mutombo went on Highly Questionable and shot down one of the greatest urban legends in sports, denying that he ever walked into a club and shouted, "Who wants to sex Mutombo?" Today, those of us who have held on to the hope that Mutombo was lying have been… » 3/26/15 5:39pm 59 minutes ago

Age Ain't Nothing But A Bummer: While We're Young, Reviewed

1. Of all the criticisms my fellow Gen-Xers have of Millennials, there isn't one that cracks me up more than "they're too self-involved." This is freaking rich, coming from us. Being self-involved was our thing. We were the ones who were obsessed with authenticity, and "reality," and not "selling out," even though… » 3/26/15 5:15pm Today 5:15pm

Wichita State Knows What It's Doing On Offense. At Least One Team Does.

The Wichita State Shockers are impressive for a lot of reasons—their beatdown of geographic rival Kansas and top-10 defense, or for the simple possibility that they can trade punches with Kentucky in a tournament rematch, should WSU defeat Notre Dame later tonight. But at the minimum, praise Gregg Marshall's squad for… » 3/26/15 4:04pm Today 4:04pm

The Latest Run The Jewels Video Takes On Police Brutality

Every music video off Run The Jewels 2 has been so good and different. The new film for the Zack de la Rocha collab "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)" doesn't deviate from that assessment, but it's heavy and a hell of a lot more real than the rest. It makes sense, considering the video deals directly with the very… » 3/26/15 3:03pm Today 3:03pm

Timofey Mozgov's Local Commercial Is An All-Time Great

We are unabashed fans of awkward local commercials starring athletes, and this new piece of work starring Timofey Mozgov in a backwards jersey is an instant classic.

All The Game Of Thrones Fan Theories You Absolutely Need To Know

If there's two things fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series can agree on, it's that 1) author George R.R. Martin is weaving an incredibly dense tale where far more happens (and has happened) than what's just on the page, and 2) that no character is safe from GRRM's murderous pen. » 3/26/15 1:46pm Today 1:46pm

1931 Op-Ed Eviscerates "Hypocrisy ... Utter Cowardice" Of College Sports

It's heartening to realize that the general sentiment toward the scam that is collegiate amateurism seems to have come around to the Death To The NCAA worldview. What's gone unappreciated, though, is just how long the fight to expose the fraudulent governance of amateur sports has been going on. The concept of… » 3/26/15 1:16pm Today 1:16pm

Last year, a Dallas high school student was murdered by another high school student who happened to live with him.

Closed Captioning Error Blesses Nik Stauskas With Fantastic Nickname

Something wonderful happened during Tuesday night's game between the 76ers and Kings. Sacramento rookie shooting guard Nik Stauskas hit a pull-up three, and the closed captioning translated the play-by-play call of "Stauskas, hitting the three" into "Sauce Castillo hit the three." Sauce Castillo! » 3/26/15 12:32pm Today 12:32pm
