The narrative around Dwight Howard, as codified most recently in a kind of silly but enjoyable Lee Jenkins Redempt-O-Matic profile that appeared on Sports Illustrated’s website yesterday, casts the 31-year-old center as something like a failure, a wayward basketball soul in need of hoops atonement and redemption. That…
Most of the planets are good, very good. But some are better than others. Here are the planets of our solar system, ranked from best to worst.

Manchester United and the anti-racism group Kick It Out are cracking down on a supporters’ song about recently acquired striker Romelu Lukaku, which is one big racist stereotype:
Handsome Dutch genius Tom Dumoulin capped off a tremendous year with his first ever world championship, as he dusted Chris Froome and everyone in the time trial to take the rainbow jersey in Bergen this morning. He rules and I can’t wait to see him don his stripes at the Tour de France next year.
Pat Neshek, who currently plays for Colorado Rockies, has been a top-notch reliever over the past six years. He’s made two All-Star appearances, including one this season (while with the Phillies). He’s a good pitcher!
At this point, more than a decade into one of the greatest careers of all time, there is no use trying to encapsulate Lionel Messi’s performances in writing. It has been tried millions of times. We’ve tried it dozens of times. And every single rhapsody penned in Messi’s name has failed to approximate what it’s like to…
Hunter Pence put the Giants ahead of the Rockies in the fifth inning of last night’s game with a two-run home run to center. Unfortunately for him, the man on base was pitcher Johnny Cueto.
The guests standing alongside Utah Governor Gary Herbert on April 19, 2016, were as puritanical as their topic of discussion was—in their minds, anyway—lascivious. Squeezed shoulder-to-shoulder behind a podium for a press conference, they had come to the Utah state capitol to talk about porn.
NASCAR Cup Series driver Chase Elliott’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team was penalized Tuesday for unapproved aerodynamic modifications to his car at Chicagoland Speedway. While that isn’t good for Elliott’s playoff hopes, what’s more interesting is that it was caught by fans on live TV.
Getting puked on is disgusting. Getting puked on and then getting punched in the face by the person who puked on you is what you get when you go to an NFL game. The guy in the white shirt learned this the hard way at Monday’s Giants-Lions game.
NFL games are hell and I don’t know why anyone would want to attend, but it’s even worse when you’re not safe even after it’s over. From Sunday’s win over the Jets, here’s a brawl near the Coliseum BART station, which the video uploader says started as a dispute over whose Uber ride had just pulled up.
A few months ago I attended a Ring of Honor/New Japan Pro Wrestling show at the 2300 (née ECW) Arena in South Philly. When a Japanese ref entered the ring, someone in the stands yelled “Mr. Miyagi!” The crowd immediately booed, then began chanting “That was racist!” (That one of the wrestlers in the match began it by…
Robert Grays, a sophomore cornerback who played for Midwestern State, died Tuesday from a neck injury suffered during a game on Saturday.
The thick, black-and-white rulebook packaged with every copy of the 1979 war-game The Campaign For North Africa is full of obtuse decrees, but the tabletop community always had a special appreciation for entry 52.6 - affectionately known as the “macaroni rule.” The Italian troops in World War II were outfitted with…
Chase Headley was, incredibly, relatively fine after being hit with a pitch in the dick. May we all be able to walk things off so quickly.
Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Small Ball Multi Floor are down to $220 on Amazon, one of the best prices we’ve seen.
