Family Feud Is The Best (And Dirtiest) Thing On TV

For someone who spends an inordinate percentage of his waking life staring at screens, I don't watch a lot of television. What a lot of folks consider to be a godsend—the so-called Golden Age of TV—is to me more of a pain in the ass: Just how many shows am I expected to watch? Also, no matter how many great shows get… » 10/20/14 1:45pm 23 minutes ago

Earl Thomas Says The Seahawks "Are Playing The Referees Too"

The Seahawks were particularly pissed about a single call, a late-game fumble that appeared to end up in the hands of Richard Sherman but which officials were unable to overturn because no replay angle conclusively proved possession.

This Shameful Display Of Mass Injury-Faking Is The Pinnacle Of Diving

Here it is, soccer haters. If any of you needed that one crucial piece of evidence that the sport's players were a bunch of diving, playacting wimps, this video showing five Defensor Bolívar players faking injuries, forcing the ref to end the match eight minutes early, should be just what you've waited for. » 10/20/14 11:57am Today 11:57am

Pumpkin Fest Lady, TV Reporter Wrestle Over Mic Live On Air

Independent journalist Jared Goodell covered the riots (along with other events) at this year's Pumpkin Fest in Keene, N.H., and at one point during his broadcast, festival organizer Ruth Sterling tried to cut him off in attempt to let everyone know that all was well.

Reviewer Jump-Kicks Macho Steakhouse's Dick And Balls Into The Sun

Beast is a self-consciously primal London steak-and-crab restaurant, all ludicrously oversized tables and steaks and crab legs and prices, presented gravely as though in mourning of the fallen at Helm's Deep; a display of such over-the-top machismo that even Vladimir Putin rolls his eyes at it when he flies overhead… » 10/20/14 11:24am Today 11:24am

Soccer Player Dies After Goal Celebration Goes Horribly Wrong

In the 62nd minute, the goal finally came. Bethlehem Vengthlang FC were trailing Chanmari West FC, 1-0, last Tuesday in India's Mizoram Premier League, but midway through the second half, a free kick bounced inexplicably through the box, past Chanmari West's keeper, off the post, and back to an awaiting BVFC player:… » 10/20/14 11:05am Today 11:05am

How Homegrown Stars Like Gyasi Zardes Are Transforming MLS

Gyasi Zardes is one the best attacking players in MLS right now, and he is neither a wrung-out superstar cashing in chips on an American soccer vacation nor a USMNT star boomeranging back home for regular playing time. His 16 goals for the LA Galaxy are the most of any American (and fifth-most in MLS) and he's a big… » 10/20/14 9:48am Today 9:48am

Manning's Keep-Away Celebration Was Planned, Practiced, Therefore Corny

After Peyton Manning tossed his record-breaking 509th career touchdown last night, the Broncos' receiving corps took the newly historic ball and razzed their quarterback with a seemingly impromptu game of keep-away. It was fun to see the stoic and anal-retentive Manning hopping around like a kid on a playground, for… » 10/20/14 9:44am Today 9:44am

Report: Brandon Marshall Called Out Jay Cutler In Bears' Locker Room

After a loss to an underwhelming Dolphins team, the 3-4 Bears had it out in a closed locker room—yelling, shoving, everyone right on down to the kicker getting blasted in turn. But as far as postgame meltdowns go, this has the potential to be one of the more constructive ones: behind Brandon Marshall's criticism for… » 10/20/14 9:03am Today 9:03am
