President Trump’s call for NFL owners to get rid of “son of a bitch” players who chose to demonstrate during the anthem drew a ton of backlash from the sports world yesterday, and today, the players who were the focus of those remarks had their chance to respond before their games. Almost every team playing in the 1…
At the end of the national anthem before today’s Falcons-Lions game in Detroit, singer Rico LaVelle dropped to one knee and put up a fist.
In the eighth inning of last night’s Tigers-Twins tilt in Detroit, Joe Mauer ripped a 104 mph liner directly into the lower leg of Tigers pitcher Alex Wilson. As you might expect, the sound of a 104 mph liner smashing off of an unprotected fibula is not especially pleasant!
There may never have been a better time in the modern history of the NFL to be a competing network. NFL ratings appear to be down, although no one is exactly clear on why, or for how long it might last. But a segment of sports fans you might otherwise consider among the NFL’s base—dumbasses, basically—are making more…
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said in a pregame interview with CBS that his team will not be on the field during the national anthem, in what he says is a gesture of unity that eliminates the individual players’ decisions of whether to sit, kneel, or stand during the anthem.
Last night, John Farrell’s playoff-bound Boston Red Sox used a strong outing from Eduardo Rodriguez and some timely hitting to take a 5-0 lead into the ninth inning against the Cincinnati Reds, who are playing out the string on a lost season. Almost nothing was at stake in this game, but it still found it’s way into…
Chelsea striker Álvaro Morata notched a hat trick in the Blues’ 4-0 dismantling of Stoke City yesterday, continuing to prove why he was one of the most sought-after signings of the summer. Morata’s goals at the Britannia Stadium weren’t stunners, but each was a beautiful showcase of skill and finesse. Here’s the first…
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 …
