In the earliest game of an NFL Sunday that’s expected to see the most widespread national anthem protests yet, several members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars took a knee during the American national anthem before this morning’s London game at Wembley Stadium.
We all thought we had seen this game before. A Big Ten program playing better than they had in generations, heading into Iowa City as a favorite in a night game, sees their entire team slip into neutral under the lights at Kinnick Stadium. Everything that can go wrong for the visitors does go wrong, while a scrappy…
Even if you aren’t a football fan, you can probably find something you’d use in Amazon’s one-day tailgating sale.
Iowa’s dreams of upsetting Penn State came crashing down as Trace McSorley completed a 65-yard two-minute drill with a touchdown pass to Juwan Johnson on fourth down and with no time remaining on the clock.
Aaron Pico was one of the most heavily hyped MMA fighters outside of UFC when the former freestyle wrestler made a disastrous debut in June, losing less than half a minute into the fight. He made up for that tonight at Bellator 183, and poor Justin Linn was the beneficiary of his left fist. MAMA MIA!
We appreciate LJ Scott’s interpretative dance themed around ESPN’s ombudsman, but we feel Michigan State fans would have appreciated him performing it outside of live game action.
A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first major league ballplayer to join the dozens of NFL pros protesting racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem tonight before Oakland’s game against Texas.
Following up on his savage “u bum” tweet aimed at Donald Trump earlier today, LeBron James took to UNINTERRUPTED this afternoon to offer more expansive thoughts on our President’s deranged behavior:
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Now get out there and do some landscaping!
The Milwaukee Brewers are the losingest National League team to still be mathematically alive for the postseason, clinging to the very bottom rung of the Wild Card chase with just seven games to go. ESPN gives them just a 16 percent chance of edging into that final spot. It’s all do-or-die from here on in in Milwaukee.
The Trump White House is being denied visits from basketball teams left and right, these days. First the great doofus had to hastily pretend to disinvite the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, and now the 2017 NCAA champion North Carolina men’s basketball team will be declining their own invitation. From a …
President Donald Trump has made something of a hobby out of attacking private citizens, Colin Kaepernick among them. During a rally held in Alabama last night, he referred to Kaepernick (among others), though not by name, saying that NFL owners should, when faced with a player kneeling during the national anthem, “get…
Reports came in this week that Carmelo Anthony had added the Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder to his list of teams for which he’d waive his no-trade clause. That was apparently as much freedom as Knicks general manager Scott Perry needed: Carmelo Anthony has now reportedly been traded to the Oklahoma City…

Rick And Morty may just be the perfect sci-fi show. It is certainly, with apologies to Westworld, currently TV’s most ambitious, taking a handful of long-running conceits (the infinite-universe theory) and extrapolating a set of narrative forces from them (the Citadel Of Ricks, the Galactic Federation). It…
Consecutive temper tantrums had President Donald Trump calling for “son of a bitch” NFL players to be fired for protesting during the national anthem, and then trying to rescind a non-existent invitation to the White House from Golden State Warriors players who’d already said they’d decline any such invitation. For…
Madden 18’s artificial intelligence is designed to react to every play, simulating live football right down to the human error. One formation, however, has puzzled the computer-controlled defense, and players are using that mismatch for easy, consistent yardage.
Blue Jays infielder Ryan Goins is almost certainly never going to have a better day as a professional baseball player than the one he had Friday night, at the expense of the Yankees.
