Like all ideas that sound good at the time but are actually quite scary, my journey to become a mermaid started with a PR email. It was an invite to try Aquamermaid—part actual workout, part childhood nostalgia fantasy for anyone who had practiced a hair flip in the shallow end of the town pool. I’ve never entertained…
We’ve got a fresh batch of videos featuring James Harrison doing wild shit in order to stay beefy, and these clips feature him hurling a medicine ball over a volleyball net with his pals.
Gabriel Jesus is the best young striker Brazil has produced in a startlingly long time. Obviously, this makes him a big deal back home. Brazilian funk artist MC Nego Blue was so impressed by Jesus’s talents that he penned an entire song, “É Gol” (translation: “It’s a Goal”), about the Manchester City man. And despite…
Mitch Evans is a guy with a pretty sweet gig. At 23, the New Zealander is a racing driver for one of the world’s most storied manufacturers, Jaguar, and he’s a key part of what the racing world hopes will be the next big thing—the electric series Formula E.

I started playing Dota 2 when I was in college, something I wanted to do to distract me from what I thought I was supposed to do. (Everyone gets a Bachelor’s degree today, right?)
This year, the NBA decided to give out all of its regular-season awards at once, and to have them presented at an interminable awards show that aired last night, more than two months after the end of the regular season. This was all mostly annoying and unnecessary, but Russell Westbrook’s MVP acceptance speech ended…
Gerber is one of the most trusted names in multitools, and Amazon’s bundling a few of their popular products into one (relatively) affordable deal.
Minor league baseball is probably America’s greatest invention. From last night’s Fort Wayne TinCaps game, here’s Jake the Diamond Dog, a Golden Retriever whose job it is to carry a basket of bottled water out to the umpires between innings:
Yasiel Puig has a cannon for an arm. You know this. Everyone who has watched him knows this. Kole Calhoun, presumably, knows this—yet he found himself trying to go from first to third in the eighth inning tonight on a single hit to Puig, which meant that he found himself thrown out.
The Rangers gave Cole Hamels a very, very comfortable cushion of run support in his return from a two-month stint on the disabled list. Elvis Andrus hit two home runs, Adrian Beltre and Joey Gallo each added another, and Texas had a 9-2 lead after the top of the fourth inning.
Russell Westbrook—the first man to average a triple-double since Oscar Robertson, an insane human and statistical highlight reel, the player who single-handedly propelled the Oklahoma City Thunder into the playoffs—is the 2017 NBA MVP.
Has LaVar Ball’s heel act made his son a heel even in Los Angeles, or do wrestling fans in LA not know Lonzo Ball is member of the Lakers? Either way, Lonzo and LaVar Ball were both booed when they appeared on WWE Raw tonight.
The Bucks’ Malcolm Brogdon is the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, defeating 76ers teammates Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award.
Javier Báez showed off his range in the third inning against the Nationals tonight, leaping to snare a ball that seemingly was all but guaranteed to find the gap and become a hit. That he made it look so easy is just testament to how smooth a fielder he is:
The Nationals’ success this year has been possible only despite their bullpen, which has seemingly tried very hard to make victory impossible as one of the worst relief corps in baseball. Their front office’s latest attempt to change that should do very little—the reported signing of Francisco Rodriguez, who was cut…
Former tennis superstar and current cranky Knicks fan John McEnroe put his foot directly into his mouth this weekend when he spoke with NPR and praised Serena Williams as “incredible” and the “best female player ever,” before clarifying that she was not the best tennis player ever because “if she played the men’s…
