Amazon added over 50 new Dash buttons to their lineup this morning, and while you probably don’t need most of them (except the Nerf one, you definitely need that), there may be a few in there that could come in handy around your house. The buttons still cost $5 each, but as an added incentive, you’ll get that $5 back…
One day you’ll decide to start giving a shit about your body, but that does not mean the world-at-large will help you along the way. That’s something I had to learn on my own—the friends and websites I consulted before changing my eating habits never mentioned how lonely it can be to try to lose weight and exercise. …
After all that—after all the campaigning and hashtags and t-shirts that were supposed to help bring Kevin Durant back to D.C. to play for his hometown team—the Washington Wizards are just throwing in the towel.
Former England manager Steve McClaren had the misfortune of commentating on his country’s humiliating loss against Iceland for Sky Sports yesterday. Watch as he goes from desperately projected confidence to utter despair in about three seconds, and chuckle to yourself about England’s unceasing failure.
There was a very weird baseball game in New York last night. The Yankees led the Rangers 6-5 heading into the ninth inning of a game that had been waterlogged by rainstorms since the fifth. Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman entered the storm to try and close things out, but walked the first batter he faced. That’s when…
The Kansas City Royals scored four runs in the second inning Monday and never looked back as they beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-2.
By now you are entirely on board with Iceland, the most surprising, most exciting, most likable team at the European Championship. More Jörmungandr than minnow, Iceland is still undefeated and has now dispatched Austria and England in consecutive matches.
Seventeen years ago, extreme sports ambassador and titular Pro Skater Tony Hawk pulled off the 900 revolution at the 1999 X-Games. The trick involves rotating the board two and a half times while midair (and in normal gravity), and Hawk struggled with it back in his spry days. Now 48, he gives it the old college try.
Former Philadelphia Eagles coach and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan has died. He was 82.
The story of women’s basketball is so incomplete without Pat Summitt, it’s almost not worth telling. Not just the winningest coach in D1 history, Summitt is the modern game, her success mirroring its rise, her ascendancy propelling the sport out of obscurity. And now she’s gone.
Amazon’s back at it again this morning with a great collection of discounted Logitech peripherals, most of which are marked down to all-time low prices.
Last week, Lael Wilcox became the first woman to win the Trans Am Bike Race, a grueling, 4,200-mile slog that takes cyclists from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia. In addition to offering no prizes, the race is totally unsupported, meaning the participants are responsible for carrying everything they need—from…
The Memphis Redbirds hosted the New Orleans Zephyrs this evening for some AAA action, and they treated their guests to a very spicy basebrawl. Apparently, Jose Urena tried to bean Jeremy Hazelbaker in the fifth inning, he charged the mound, and it was on.
Randy Johnson’s bird murder pitch remains maybe my favorite single pitch of all time. Baseball is a sport of massive data sets and averages, which makes strange wrinkles in the fabric of the game, like all 15 home teams winning, easier to appreciate. Johnson’s bird explosion job is the most videogenic example of this.
Here’s a tweet:
To get to the second round of the Wimbledon finals, Marcus Willis had to beat the 54th-ranked player in the world, the 99th, and also a pair of highly-touted Russian teenagers. If Willis wants to get to the third round, he’ll have to beat Roger Federer. This is fairly standard fare for most anyone who wants to make it…
