This video comes to us from reader Bruce, a Cleveland Cavaliers fan who was very excited to see his team win Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Bruce, in a state of bliss, did a lot of jumping and yelling after the final buzzer, and that is sometimes a dangerous thing to do when only wearing flip flops.
Australia has an earned reputation for being dangerous and inhospitable. It’s home to dickhead lizards that look like Jurassic Park dinosaurs, jellyfish that swallow regular fish whole, gangs of murderous sharks, herpes-infested carp, and snakes that are so sick of living there that they try to suffocate themselves in…
Florida State’s football team didn’t win a national title, conference championship, or bowl game last season, but the players earned a ring anyway for the distinction of being good in Florida. Congratulations to the good Florida team.
A useful exercise in Richard Deitsch’s SI.com column today, as he asks seven sports media members for their opinions on whether it’s their place to introduce politics into their work. And the most bearish of them all is NFL robot Adam Schefter.
Jaguars linebacker Dan Skuta was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery in Orlando, Fla. during the early morning hours of June 19. The incident, first reported by CBS 47, allegedly involved Skuta hitting a woman who refused to give him her phone number.
High Sierra is best known for its camping backpacks, but they also make wheeled duffels, hydration packs, waist packs, computer bags, and more, and it’s all on sale today on Amazon. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
At this point, it’s pretty hard to dismiss out of hand the notion that Gonzalo Higuaín—unquestionably one of the best forwards in the sport, fresh off a historically great season—might be a sleeper agent embedded in the Argentine national team for the express purpose of bringing the team, the country, and, most of…
The Videotron Centre was built with one goal in mind: to play host to the reborn Nordiques, because NHL expansion wasn’t going to consider Quebec City without a modern arena in place. Well, the arena exists, and Quebec City still isn’t getting an NHL team. Money well spent?
Several times a year—five if I can—I get stuck by a needle. A friendly hand hunts the crooks of both my elbows for a vein fat enough to poke, swabs it down with iodine, and dabs the spot with a marker as if it were a treasure map. Depending on whether or not I’m in the mood for sterile and unthreatening gore, I either…
A lot of wild shit went down on last night’s season finale of Game of Thrones. It was so wild. I bet everyone at your office today is like, “Man, did you see all the wild shit that went down on Game of Thrones last night?” Me? I’m the guy one desk over, muttering, “Yeah but what about Cersei’s dress?”
Last week, Johnny Manziel’s defense attorney Bob Hinton unwittingly texted sensitive information about his client to the Associated Press, including the sentence, “Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle.” Today, Manziel’s spokesperson Denise Michaels said that Hinton has withdrawn from the case.
We’ve long broadcast our admiration for Fox Deportes NASCAR announcers Tony Rivera and Luis Rodriguez—the network even blurbed us in a promo—and Rivera once again turned in a terrific performance in calling the bump-and-grind final lap of yesterday’s race at Sonoma.
They teach you to watch the hips. But maybe also keep an eye on the ball:
One of the big storylines in the run-up to this summer’s Olympics was the fact that many of America’s best basketball players would not be making the trip. Steph Curry and LeBron James both decided they’d rather do other things this summer, Anthony Davis and LaMarcus Aldridge got hurt, and Russell Wesbrook, Kawhi…
It might have been merely frustration: Three straight years of making international finals, three straight finals losses in extra time or on penalties. Or it might have been the last night of Argentina as we know it.
Whether you’re leaving your cat alone for a weekend, or just want to keep your pets satisfied (i.e. quiet) on mornings when you’re sleeping in, Amazon’s deeply discounting a bunch of PetSafe automatic feeders and drinking fountains, today only in Amazon’s Gold Box.
Lionel Messi told TV reporters after Argentina’s Copa América final loss to Chile that it would be his final appearance for his nation, retiring from international play due to what sounds like his frustration at the inability to ever lead his squad to a trophy.
The world’s greatest soccer player once again failed to lead his team to a major international trophy as Argentina fell to Chile in penalties 4-2, thanks in part to Messi failing to deliver his PK attempt on target.
