Oh yeah baby, oh yeah! Someone give me a high-five!
After Teddy Bridgewater crumpled to the ground with a non-contact injury this afternoon, reports out of Vikings camp were grisly yet unspecific. Everyone on the scene had players forming prayer circles, barfing, and crying, but word on a specific diagnosis didn’t come for a while longer. This evening, the Vikings…
Playground folk culture is oddly, comfortingly consistent. Small children laugh themselves stupid over the same dumb material, then grow up and move on while their dumb jokes and rhymes stay behind, to be discovered by new generations.

On Sunday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ AAA affiliate Indianapolis Indians beat the Toledo Mud Hens, the Tigers’ AAA club, 6-2.

Bernard Tomic is mad! How mad? Mad enough to tell a heckling spectator, in front of the on-court mics and everyone, to suck his balls.

Ishmael Zamora, the Baylor receiver caught on film whipping and stomping his Rottweiler, has been suspended three games by the university for animal abuse.
The thing about me is that I don’t care that Anthony Weiner is in the news again for sexting. Sorry, but I fail to see how him taking a photo of his dick near his kid and then separating from his wife is a series of events I’m supposed to care about.

Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 13 Michigan.
Osa Masina, USC’s back-up weakside linebacker, has been suspended from this Saturday’s season-opener against Alabama for what the Trojans’s athletic department is deeming “a violation of team rules.”
Last week, U.S. Soccer suspended Hope Solo from the USWNT and canceled her contract with the team in a move clearly meant as a very public, quite possibly permanent distancing of the national team from their long-serving goalkeeper. After taking an indefinite leave of absence from her club team, the NWSL’s Seattle…
A former tennis player at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville filed a lawsuit August 22 alleging the university mishandled a Title IX investigation and subsequent expulsion of a fellow student-athlete and one-time Olympian whom she says sexually assaulted her on campus in 2014.
NASCAR was about at its peak in 2008. It had some of the highest television ratings it had ever received and track attendance was skyrocketing. Behind the scenes, the series’ public relations team was preoccupied with jingoistic complaints from its most vocal shitheads about national anthems, Confederate flags,…
If you hurry over to Amazon, you can score a 16 ounce Contigo Autoseal West Loop travel mug in white for $12, the best price we’ve seen.
Update: At a press conference this afternoon, the Vikings announced that Teddy Bridgewater suffered a “significant” knee injury, but that the full extent of the injury is still unknown. The team did not give a timetable for how long Bridgewater might be out.
