Attention people of Dallas: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton desperately needs your help.
Like Liverpool fans, Borussia Dortmund supporters are also in the midst of a cold war against ticket pricing hikes. The German fans made their feelings perfectly evident yesterday by boycotting the first 20 minutes of the BVB-Stuttgart cup match, then interrupting the game by lobbing a bunch of tennis balls onto the…
The Canucks’ moms are with the team on their two-game road trip (compare the happy picture above with this one of the Leafs’ dads), and everyone was having a good time in Vancouver’s 3-1 win at Colorado. No one more so than Beth Bartkowski, who saw her son score his first goal in more than three months.
Warriors forward Draymond Green fell a bit short of his standard triple-double output against the Rockets last night, but he appeared to accomplish a rare NBA feat after having a clean block erased by a bad foul call.
Flames leading scorers Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, along with forward Lance Bouma, were not in the lineup for Calgary’s last night’s 4-3 win over the Leafs. There was a whole thing at practice the day before, with people showing up late, and maybe being under the weather, and the benchings were chalked up to…
What inspired Maude Perchey of Rouen and Bordeaux’s Eva Sumo to cease competing against one another within the strictures of soccer’s rule book and instead elect to get into some gangsta shit, we don’t know. What we do know is that Perchey throws punches like she’s trying to decapitate her opponent, and Sumo appears…
UNC coach Roy Williams says he’s “alive and kicking” after a bout with vertigo that forced him to leave the Tar Heels’ eventual 68-65 win over Boston College with 15 minutes remaining.

The Warriors and Rockets are engaged in an absolute barn burner in Oakland—it was 93-93 at the end of the third quarter—full of unlikely threes and great offense. But even within the context of an already hyperkinetic game, this amazing sequence by the Warriors is one of the prettiest things I’ve seen all season.
Killing time before votes from the New Hampshire primary started trickling in, Bernie Sanders showed off some of the skill that helped his Brooklyn elementary school win the borough championship. I’d make a joke here, but that’s bigger than any basketball accomplishment I have.
Six unnamed women sued the University of Tennessee in federal court Tuesday, alleging numerous Title IX violations by the school, an adjudication process heinously biased against victims, and a pattern of sexual assault by male athletes.
Oh surprise, Heat center Hassan Whiteside is doing dirty things again. This time it’s elbowing gigantic Spurs center Boban Marjanovic in the head while the two were fighting for position:

ESPN and DraftKings have ended their exclusive advertising agreement, according to a Yahoo report. Daniel Roberts reports that it was likely DraftKings—who are facing dozens of class action lawsuits, as well as engaged in a major legal battle with the State of New York—who asked to end the agreement.

A former Kent State softball player is suing the university and its former softball coach, Karen Linder, accusing Linder of pressuring the player to cover up her rape allegation against the coach’s son.

The New Yorker has a nice profile of Kevin Castille, who will compete in this weekend’s Olympic Marathon Trials as the oldest ever men’s qualifier. Castille’s success at 43 might be because of the low mileage on his legs: he spent most of his 20s selling crack cocaine, and then in jail.
Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson is the UFC’s flyweight champion and arguably one of the greatest fighters on Earth. He blends speed and technique in ways that’ll make your eyes say, “huminahuminahwhaat?” Naturally, he wants to play video games for a living.
