Even a cursory examination of the facts makes it impossible to reach any conclusion other than that the Republican Party takes inordinate pleasure in making your life worse. Take Virginia Foxx, for example.
On Sunday, I arrived in North Dakota and headed to Oceti Sakowin, one of the main camps where Native water protectors are peacefully blocking the planned path of the Dakota Access Pipeline. I did some interviews. The photographer accompanying me took photos. It was icy cold and very dark and once or twice I fell down…
The Raiders have one of the NFL’s worst defenses, but they might have the league’s best defensive player. No one carries a unit singlehandedly, but defensive end/outside linebacker Khalil Mack comes the closest in the league.
In three seconds: two passes thrown, roughly 72 feet of hardwood spanned, zero dribbles taken, and suddenly Kevin Durant has yammed it hard. This season we’ve been blessed by frequent instances of Russ and Giannis singlehandedly wrecking shit on the run, but this, um, heartwarming display of teamwork beats them all…
Spanish sports paper Mundo Deportivo has reportedly learned who will win the next Ballon d’Or about, a week before the scheduled official announcement. It’s a tad unfortunate that a reported leak of this magnitude came this year, because MD’s info says what everyone already knew: Cristiano Ronaldo will win it.
The New York Jets still have four games left to play, but last night’s no-show against the Colts was an effective and fitting end to their season. The Jets are 3-9 now, and whatever combination of luck and competence that got them to a 10-6 record last season is nowhere to be found.
Ronald Gasser, the man who admitted to shooting and killing former NFL player Joe McKnight in an apparent road rage incident, has been arrested on a count of manslaughter. He is being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, according to the online inmate search.
The first goal in Tottenham Hotspur’s (sorely necessary) rout of Swansea City this weekend was scored by Harry Kane—a penalty kick awarded in the 39th minute, after Dele Alli went down in the box under a challenge from Kyle Naughton. It was, as even the most loyal Spurs supporter can admit, a dive.
From multiple media reports, the Nationals appear to be the team most likely to land White Sox ace Chris Sale in a trade this offseason—possibly as soon as this week’s Winter Meetings. The only thing that might scuttle the deal? If the Nats get Andrew McCutchen instead.
Warm weather may seem a long way off, but it’ll be here before you know it, and you can be ready to take full advantage with Amazon’s big hammock deal.
What was most striking about Klay Thompson’s 60-point beatdown of the Indiana Pacers tonight was how easy it all was. The Warriors already had one of the best offenses in NBA history last season and they replaced their worst starter with a former MVP during the offseason, so the amount of available space that their…
The Warriors are on pace to finish the season with the best offensive efficiency in NBA history, thanks primarily to the pyrotechnical shooting prowess of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. Klay Thompson started the season out slowly, but tonight he broke all the way out and scored 40 points in the first half of the…
Idiots On The Field once again stormed a lousy Monday Night Football game tonight, which means their eventual punishment at the arms of New Jersey state troopers got called live on Westwood One radio by Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason.
The Portland Hale Blazers are playing their only game of the year in Chicago tonight, so the odd mistake of nomenclature is forgivable. Meyers Leonard was misidentified as “Miles” (perhaps it was “Myles?”) tonight and he loudly offered a correction.
