You’ve now got your reading assignment for the day: In the Seattle Times, reporter Jayson Jenks asked a handful of Seahawks if they have any particular memories of Marshawn Lynch being a cool guy. It seems they like talking about their former teammate as much as I like hearing about him.
This past weekend, Barcelona scored a last-minute penalty to eke out a critical away win against Valencia. The players were very excited, so they celebrated. The Valencia fans were very upset, so they shouted insults. Neymar in particular took issue with this and yelled something back at the fans. In response, a fan…
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred made an appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike yesterday to shoot the shit about the World Series. Manfred said he feels good about the elevated level of interest in the historic Indians-Cubs World Series, and is stoked that there are 14 players under the age of 25 playing in the Series.
The day: July 9, 2000. The place: Wrigley Field. A young, 54-year-old fake billionaire with wild aspirations had been practicing singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” for two full weeks in preparation for his big debut. And as Donald Trump gleefully tore into the mic, an entire stadium began to boo.
Let’s briefly acknowledge all the required caveats: that this was just the first game of a long season, that recent history has proven super teams always take time to gel, that the Golden State Warriors are still going to kick tons of ass this year.
In the wake of AT&T’s newly planned mega-merger with Time Warner, it’s a great time to discuss—what?—MONOPSONY, a funny word describing what happens when an employer has too much power in the marketplace. Sounds familiar...
Here’s something that should put the fear of god and of the two-seam fastball into the Cubs: Corey Kluber still had plenty in the tank when he was pulled after six-plus innings. As dominant as Kluber’s nine-strikeout performance was, Terry Francona is holding him back. He’s saving him.
Tri-ply pots and pans can transform the way you cook, but if you don’t want to take out a second mortgage to buy a bunch of All-Clad, this similar Cuisinart set is on sale for just $180, today only.
Perhaps the most humiliating moment of the Warriors’ ignominious collapse in the NBA Finals came when LeBron James soared out of the sky and pinned Andre Iguodala’s shot to the backboard in utter defiance of gravity and everyone.
The Indians have been nigh unbeatable this postseason thanks to a bullpen that’s seemingly incapable of getting roughed up and a propensity for whacking big dingers. They lived up to expectations on both fronts tonight, but they also have Corey Kluber to thank for utterly confounding Cubs hitters all night, kicking…
Police opened fire on a semi-truck in a high speed pursuit near Hammond, Indiana after the truck refused to stop, according to Fox 32. We now cut to footage recorded on the scene from two bros totally losing their minds, dude.
In his first game without Tim Duncan since the Mesozoic Era, Gregg Popovich got wistful and told a touching story about his relationship with old friend Steve Kerr.
Let’s see the pugs, Dan.
Hockey players tend to be dentally challenged, but goalies usually manage to retain most of their chompers. Not so much with Ben Bishop. The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie took a Peter Holland zinger to the face and lost his two front teeth this evening despite having a mask for protection.
The Cavaliers are cruising in the first game of the NBA season, with a nice healthy fourth quarter lead over the Knicks. It’s gone about how you’d probably expect. Kristaps Porzingis has loped around the court and hit a few shots, Kyrie Irving has put Brandon Jennings in the toilet, and, of course, LeBron James has…
A 36-year-old Broncos fan fell from a “severe height” while leaving last night’s win over the Texans, and the Denver Medical Examiner’s Office pronounced him dead this afternoon. Jason Coy fell last night at 9:45 p.m. local time, and an emergency crew responded to a 911 call shortly after. Coy was taken to the…
