Gifts For Your Friend Who Works in a Hellishly Uncomfortable Office

Let’s imagine you work at a company. It’s a pretty good company, good enough that it decides, after much talk, to move to a bigger, fancier office. This office is much-heralded by those who have created it. And yet, it is still an office. It still has flaws, like any living, breathing thing. »23 minutes ago11/24/15 4:54pm

The Good Dinosaur's Visual Grandeur Makes Up For Its Lack Of Wit

One of the constant accolades Pixar receives about its movies is that they’re not made just for kids. This is meant as a compliment: While they’re animated and appeal to children, their emotional and thematic sophistication also makes them satisfying to grownups—maybe even more so. The downside to those hosannas is… »Today 2:39pm11/24/15 2:39pm

Johnny Manziel's Defense: "Videos Can Be Old" [UPDATE]

This weekend, a video surfaced of Johnny Manziel holding a champagne bottle and singing to Future, which would be a standard bit of athlete-out-on-the-town goofiness if not for the fact that the Browns quarterback spent two months in rehab earlier this year. The clip appears to be from a Friday party at a nightclub in… »Today 12:30pm11/24/15 12:30pm

If You Aren't Up On Ben Simmons Yet, It's Time To Change That

LSU freshman forward Ben Simmons played in his first nationally televised game last night, hanging a dominant 21-20-7 line in a one-point loss to Marquette. If you haven’t seen Simmons play, you might look at those 20 rebounds and seven assists and assume that he’s a big, overpowering forward who’s just really good at… »Today 11:39am11/24/15 11:39am

Florentino Pérez Is What's Wrong With Real Madrid

After seeing how summarily Barcelona dispensed with Real Madrid, the temptation is to lay the blame at the feet of their first-year manager, Rafa Benítez.

How To Get Four Offensive Rebounds In 11 Seconds, Starring Andre Drummond

This sequence, from last night’s Pistons-Bucks game, is just hilarious. That’s Andre Drummond—the biggest, baddest rebounder in the league—deploying his brute strength, nose for the ball, and lack of finesse in a way that perfectly encapsulates him as a player. »Today 10:13am11/24/15 10:13am

What's Wrong With NFL Officiating?

It’s getting exhausting emerging from each weekend with our choice of questionable and downright bad refereeing decisions to analyze, but it feels unavoidable these days. I don’t know if it’s confirmation bias or if it’s real, but NFL officiating feels as bad this season as it’s ever been. Last night’s 20-13 Patriots… »Today 9:26am11/24/15 9:26am
