Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred, in collaboration with his quisling associates in the players’ union, is apparently ready to do away with the normal and basic baseball act of four balls leading to a walk. He and they have agreed to a scheme by which the intentional walk doesn’t physically occur, but is…
One of the especially nasty side effects of the current state of the country is that basic morality is being read as political action. Dexter Fowler can’t even say it’s “unfortunate” if his Iranian-American wife can’t see her family without bringing on an avalanche of ugly, bigoted responses. And now A’s reliever Sean…
The Washington football team is perhaps the most dysfunctional in the NFL, and this week the Skins have given D.C. football kremlinologists plenty to chew on.
Last weekend, as Donald Trump prepared to rally in Florida, Barack Obama laid low after his vacation with Richard Branson, and Hillary Clinton took in some Broadway shows, 250 young leftists from across the country crowded into a Brooklyn church to learn how to spread the good word about socialism.
Where are the friggin’ trades? That is what the hell I want to know. Show me the trades.
Todd Gurley, who averaged 3.2 yards per carry last season because every defense playing the Rams challenged either Jared Goff or a sack of leaves to beat them through the air, showed an ability to cut and dodge a defender when he torched some poor sap in pickup basketball at a California gym over the weekend.
Bernard Tomic is the second-best prospect from Australia and now, miraculously, the first-best at not giving a shit. That’s quite an accomplishment given the oeuvre of his close friend and compatriot Nick Kyrgios, who tanked his way to a $25,000 fine and hit a tweener at the climax of a fifth-set collapse at the…
For most England-focused soccer fans watching yesterday’s Manchester City-Monaco Champions League match, seeing Radamel Falcao’s name in the starting lineup probably elicited more surprised chuckles than brows furrowed in worry or anticipation of what the striker might do. Oh wow, Falcao—that washed up has-been who…
Budapest, Hungary, has withdrawn its bid to host the 2024 Olympics, reports the Associated Press, citing a Hungarian government spokesperson. The withdrawal technically has to be voted upon by the Hungary City Assembly, but there is no doubt that it will pass.
Last week, I was on a flight to California, flipping through the various movies I could watch on the headrest. Boogie Nights was available. Great movie! Thing is, more than a few parts of it might have made the family sitting next to me a little uncomfortable.
Did you hear the good news? NASA found some new Earth-sized exoplanets that aren’t that far away. There might be aliens on them! Or maybe we’ll be able to live on them someday! Either way, there’s no harm in doing some early planning.

Runner—and food and lifestyle blogger Jane Seo—had her second-place finish in the Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon disqualified on Sunday night. Two days after the race, a part-time marathon watchdog blogger revealed that Seo had cheated and cut 1.5 miles off her course while securing her 1:21:46 finish. Not only did…
New Yorkers! Are you a Knicks fan? If you are, I am very sorry. But you should also attend tonight’s Varsity Letters reading series, presented by Gelf Magazine. Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck and Yaron Weitzman, The New York Times’ Harvey Araton, and Vocativ’s Robert Silverman will be talking about the Charles Oakley…
There’s no polite way to say this: These photos of Colby Rasmus are the worst thing I’ve ever seen.
Jerome “J.K.” Schaffer, a former football player for the Cincinnati Bearcats and Bengals, was arrested in Ohio Sunday after allegedly assaulting a man and exposing himself outside of a church.
One complaint lobbed at today’s game is that everyone is content to play the same style of tennis: Just stand at the back of the court and hit hard topspin groundstrokes over and over until your opponent, who’s attempting the same, can’t keep up. We live in a “power baseline” era, and it didn’t use to be that way, the…
One of the hundreds of unpaid randos who produce the vast majority of the blogs on SB Nation’s network of sites has been, uh, fired(?), after the discovery that she’d extensively plagiarized an article about NFL draft prospects in a post for the blogging network’s Denver Broncos site.
