Lawsuit: NCAA Athletics Violate Labor Laws

Add this to the growing number of legal shots fired at the NCAA: A lawsuit filed in federal court says the current setup violates federal labor laws and athletes should be paid.

How Much a Bottle of Whiskey Costs in Every State

It is Friday, which means it is an excellent day for a whiskey drink. Inspired by The Awl's quest to catalog the cost of cigarettes in every state, we decided to hunt down the price of a bottle of liquor in every state so you can know exactly how much more or less that stiff pour is costing you than neighboring… » 10/24/14 5:48pm Today 5:48pm

You'll See This Car Crash Coming And It's Still Intense As Hell

The video is cued for about 30 seconds of buildup, but you might want to watch the whole thing to properly let the tension build. It's two men filming the car in front of them as the driver drifts and swerves. The video ends exactly how you expect it to—which doesn't mean you won't shit your dick when it happens. » 10/24/14 5:17pm Today 5:17pm

Hey, The Falcons And Lions Are Playing At 9:30 A.M. ET Sunday

Yeah, we did a post touching on Sunday's Lions-Falcons game in Wembley Stadium, but an informal poll showed that most of us didn't know it would air on the East Coast at 9:30 a.m. We thought it'd be at 1 p.m. like usual.

I'm gonna tell the Price Is Right story now, because I don't think I've ever told it in full, so here goes (deep breath): I had just transferred to a new college, and my roommate was a year ahead of me.

27 Pumpkin Beers, Ranked

There are two kinds of people: those who embrace Pumpkin-Spice-Everything Season for the miracle that it is, and the godless, gourdless heathens who reject it and live a bland, spiceless life. I fall into the former category, which means it's time to combine two of my favorite activities: drinking pumpkin beers and… » 10/24/14 3:56pm Today 3:56pm

Grizzly Bear Steals One Of Those Cameras You Strap To Your Head

Some guy put one of those dumb cameras that people are always strapping to their heads on a bridge in an effort to scope out some bears. Some bears did indeed get scoped, but one of them got the last laugh when he snatched the little camera and took off with it. » 10/24/14 3:45pm Today 3:45pm

Texas Should Declare Independence And Make This Their National Beer

Yesterday, one of my idiot friends told me that certain South Floridians have expressed interest in seceding from the rest of the state. Roughly 11 seconds of exhaustive Googling just now failed to turn up much evidence, but let's say it's true. Makes sense. The government's way up north, and apparently run by a… » 10/24/14 1:14pm Today 1:14pm

History Doesn't Lie: Offense Wins Games, Defense Wins Championships

Over the past several years, thanks to rule changes that have given quarterbacks more protection and allowed receivers to run rampant through the secondary, football fans have been conditioned to expect dynamic aerial battles and skyrocketing scores. Great offenses can thrill fans and rack up points, but the old adage… » 10/24/14 12:00pm Today 12:00pm
