The Bulls were eliminated from the playoffs last night, which meant exit interviews today. These are understandably but almost invariably boring, rehashed collections of clichéd athlete-speak. Unless you bring along your delightfully relaxed giant fluffer of a dog, Muppet, as Robin Lopez did this afternoon:
Adam “Armada” Lindgren, considered one of the “five gods” of competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee, has dropped out of this weekend’s DreamHack Austin due to a malfunctioning controller.
Down by as many as eight runs at their lowest point last night, the Yankees managed to pull off quite the comeback against the Orioles—going from being down 9-1 in the sixth to winning 14-11 in the tenth.
Before Game 2 of the Predators’ second-round series against the Blues last night, P.K. Subban was seen on camera dancing, trying out some tricks, and generally being a happily relaxed player during warmups.
George Coetzee eagled the 18th today at the China Open by ricocheting a shot into a once-in-a-lifetime situation—and taking the South African from one-over to one-under after the third round.
Roger Goodell’s appearances on the NFL Draft stage have been met with boos for years, but Phillyfans saved their most vicious jeers for Drew Pearson, who announced the Cowboys’ second-round selection—booing him so fervently that the name was all but unintelligible.

Allow me to remove my foot from my mouth: Rafael Nadal is still the King of Clay, fine. He claimed his 10th title at Monte Carlo last week, and looks set to take his 10th Barcelona Open title too, unless Andy Murray snaps out of his daze or Dominic Thiem manages the upset. Maybe his 10th French Open lies just a few…
Courtrooms are the place where we find Truth. We know that from many fine movies and television shows, such as Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Over the last two weeks, the custody trial of radio provocateur Alex Jones, in Austin, has been cast as an opportunity to find the truth…
Weber’s Kettle charcoal grill is iconic, versatile, and basically perfect, and Amazon’s running a $20 discount on it today, the best deal we’ve ever seen. Discounts of any size on this grill are so rare, they’re still bloody, so place your order before it burns itself out.
