Whoever said that youth is wasted on the young clearly did not anticipate a future in which a junior varsity boys’ baseball team from Grand Forks, N.D., would celebrate the end of their season and the impending arrival of summer by allegedly sexually violating a McDonald’s McChicken® on their bus.

Can Thailand Take Advantage Of Their Lucky Break?

Thailand’s journey to the World Cup was a strange one, and they had to take advantage of a unique set of circumstances to get here. In 2009, FIFA decided to bump up the number of teams in the 2015 World Cup from 16 to 24, which increased the amount of bids for Asian teams from three to five. And in 2011, five North… » 6/03/15 6:08pm Today 6:08pm

Andrei Kirilenko Was The Weirdest Motherfucker Alive

Yesterday, Andrei Kirilenko announced his retirement from basketball. He’d spent the last few months playing in Russia, after being traded to Philadelphia but refusing to report earlier this season.

World Cup Debutantes Côte d'Ivoire Will Be Here For Years To Come

When Côte d’Ivoire take the field against Germany on June 7, how they will play will be a mystery.

Norway's Brute Force Past Meets Soccer's Future

Two decades ago Norway were a soccer power, finishing second at the 1991 World Cup and winning it all in 1995. But recent years have seen a tactically naïve Norway surpassed, or at least equaled, by nations that got a later jump on women’s soccer, like France, England, and Spain. While they should have no trouble… » 6/03/15 4:33pm Today 4:33pm

Germany Are A Steamroller, And They Expect To Win It All

Germany have historically been one of the best teams in women’s soccer, and they go into the 2015 World Cup like they go into every tournament: with the expectation of winning. They won the World Cup in 2003 and 2007, finished runner-up in 1995, and have won every Women’s Euro since 1995. They went 10-0 in World Cup… » 6/03/15 3:35pm Today 3:35pm

A Potent Texan IPA That Doesn't Waste A Drop Of Water

Houston flooded last week, which is both tragic and surprising: The tragedy is self-evident, and the surprise (to me at least) is that Houston is a flooding sort of place.

How to Be a Tourist in Your Own City

Sometimes it’s easy to become so jaded by your own city that you forget all it has to offer. Even though I’ve lived in NYC for 15 years, there are places I’m kind of embarrassed to admit I’ve never been: like the Statue of Liberty. And the Empire State Building.
