Guy Who Sued Ryan Braun Arrested For Posting Brotastic Deposition Vids

Yankees Ground Crew Struggles To Get Tarp On Field During Driving Rain

After some very nearby flashes of lightning, the skies opened and dumped a whole mess of rain on the Bronx tonight.

Jay Cutler Drove To Camp In A Big-Ass Van, Is Still The Best

Jay Cutler showed up to Bears training camp today driving the vehicle you see above, what Jay calls a conversion van. Cutler made it very clear that this was not a mini-van, probably because he has spawned a whole brood of mini-Cutlers and a mini-van seems like a pretty sensible option for a dad. But it's a… » 7/23/14 7:45pm Yesterday 7:45pm

We Live In The Golden Age Of Sports Documentaries

A piece in this week's SportsBusiness Journal is nominally about how HBO Sports has lost its preeminence in the sports documentary biz, and sure enough, it has gutted its in-house doc unit in recent years.

The Lebowskis Who Might Have Been: Behind The Scenes With The Coens

When I was 25 I got a job with the Coen brothers. I'd worked on three movies as an apprentice film editor and got a gig with them as a personal assistant when they made The Big Lebowski. I was with them for a year, from before pre-production through post-production (when they edited the movie, I transitioned from… » 7/23/14 2:52pm Yesterday 2:52pm

Hockey's About To Get The Bullshit "Anti-Concussion Helmet" Treatment

Virginia Tech thinks hockey helmets are bullshit, which is more or less true. In turn, it wants to look at the differences between hockey's helmets and football's recently evolved versions, and bring the concussion-stopping advances to hockey. This is pretty much bullshit. » 7/23/14 2:29pm Yesterday 2:29pm
