How Daily Fantasy Fucked Things Up For Everyone

Daily fantasy sports should have been a great thing. A form of betting just shiny and different enough from handing a brown bag of cash to a guy named Fingers at the local dive bar to be treated as respectable enterprise, it had the potential not just to make insane amounts of money, but to change the debate about… »10/08/15 12:53pmToday 12:53pm

The Blackhawks went all out to commemorate the start of their championship defense—and why not? How often do you win a Cup? But last night’s ceremony went on forever. There was a red carpet walk. Every player got an introduction. Videos played. The Stanley Cup came out. Gary Bettman was booed. Finally, the banner was… »10/08/15 10:15amToday 10:15am
