Report: WWE Hall Of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper Is Dead

Roddy Toombs, best known for portraying “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in both the former WWF and WCW, is dead at the age of 61 according to a TMZ report. He was central to the explosion of WWF’s popularity, with his feuds against Hulk Hogan and Mr. T playing prominent roles in the creation of the first Wrestlemania and its 1986… » 7/31/15 6:20pm 11 minutes ago

Lounge Like Royalty In This $25 Hammock Chair

A hammock is my preferred method of laying motionless outdoors (followed closely by drunken beach napping), but it’s not great for, say, sitting up and reading. This hammock chair seems to address that shortcoming, and even comes with a hanging footrest! [Hammock Chair, $25. Multiple colors available]… » 7/31/15 6:15pm 17 minutes ago

The David Foster Wallace Movie Gets Our Vision Of Him Right, At Least

The End of the Tour, a drama about a five-day interview/road trip that took place between novelist David Foster Wallace and Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky in 1996, has already received significant pushback from those closest to the late author, who committed suicide in 2008. Wallace’s estate announced in April it… » 7/31/15 4:14pm Today 4:14pm

The First Photos Of Jason Pierre-Paul's Bandaged, Blown-Up Hand 

The Giants have no idea how many fingers Jason Pierre-Paul has left, and JPP hasn’t called to tell them. Reports earlier this month were that he’d lost his index finger, but that’s still unconfirmed. New photos from the NY Daily News don’t have hard evidence one way or another, but they make his hand look sort of, uh,… » 7/31/15 4:00pm Today 4:00pm

Taylor Swift Is Seinfeld's Daughter, And The Diplomat NYC Deserves

Across the ’90s, few pieces of music were more ubiquitous than a winding slap-bass jingle composed by studio musician Jonathan Wolff. Every week, tens of millions of Americans heard it open and close Seinfeld, a sitcom so beloved that even its kitschy theme song has become iconic. At the beginning of Season Three,… » 7/31/15 3:48pm Today 3:48pm

Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer Prequel Will Thrill Fans, At Least

Even in this brave new world of micro-niches and fan service as a legitimate business model, the very existence of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is unexpected, somewhat unnecessary, and more than a little odd. But these are exactly the circumstances in which creators David Wain and Michael Showalter best… » 7/31/15 2:56pm Today 2:56pm

Why Are Dogs So Insanely Happy to See Us When We Get Home?

Unlike a certain companion animal that will go unnamed, dogs lose their minds when reunited with their owners. But it’s not immediately obvious why our canine companions should grant us such an over-the-top greeting—especially considering the power imbalance that exists between the two species. We spoke to the experts… » 7/31/15 2:36pm Today 2:36pm

Laundry School: Death To Rumpled, Wrinkled Clothes

Here we are, friends, at the end of our Laundry School coursework. We covered a ton of ground this month, from explaining the difference between liquid and powder detergents to an overview of washer and dryer settings and cycles.

A Norwegian Hero Has Been Shitting In A Golf Club's Holes For A Decade

There are keyboard warriors out there, like myself, who will write all these words about how golf is a classist and racist and sexist and bullshit sport and how actually fuck that it’s not even a sport and how the easiest way to tell if you’re in the presence of a Grade-A, grass-fed fuckboy is to ask if he owns Hush… » 7/31/15 1:30pm Today 1:30pm

Truly I Say To You Today That Bono Is An Asswipe

At the intersection of all the annoying things a rock star can be—messianic, pretentious, vapid, dumb, old, creatively bankrupt, grandiose, utterly bereft of self-awareness, calcified into a grotesque oily wire-rack-in-the-grocery-store knockoff of himself, part of U2, et cetera—there sits Bono in his stupid housefly… » 7/31/15 1:06pm Today 1:06pm

This Is The Refusal Roberto Clemente Got When He Asked For A Raise

Following his 1959 season—his fifth full year in the bigs—Hall-of-Fame outfielder Roberto Clemente asked for a raise, to $23,000. GM Joe L. Brown, architect of those great Pirates teams of the ‘60s and ‘70s, replied with a letter politely but firmly telling Clemente that he wasn’t good enough. » 7/31/15 12:57pm Today 12:57pm

The Cardinals' Charity Really Doesn't Want To Answer Our Questions

Here is a mystery: Cardinals Care, the official charity of the St. Louis Cardinals, is making hundreds of thousands of dollars in unusual payments to the St. Louis Cardinals every year. Presumably there’s some straightforward explanation for this, but we can’t tell you what it is, because Cardinals Care really doesn’t… » 7/31/15 12:48pm Today 12:48pm

The First Mission: Impossible Movie Is Very '90s And Very Necessary

There has never been a bad Mission: Impossible movie. They’ve all been ridiculous. They’ve all strained credulity. They’ve all had dense, convoluted plots that don’t really stand up to any scrutiny. They’ve all functionally served as Tom Cruise stunt reels, the plots reduced to incoherent connective tissue propping up… » 7/31/15 12:31pm Today 12:31pm

No Hops-Having Keeper Lets Pass Bounce Over His Head For An Own Goal

You had three options here, goalkeeper: 1) run out to the incoming back pass and meet it right after it bounces, 2) step back a few steps and take the ball off your chest after it took that towering though perfectly predictable skip off the turf, 3) loiter around in the box and find yourself standing directly… » 7/31/15 12:17pm Today 12:17pm

Gilbert Arenas's LeBron Scouting Report Is Insane, But Also Perfect

Gilbert Arenas measured up as a rival to LeBron about as well as Ricky Davis did as a sidekick. This is unfair to a player as good as Gil who, had he not self-medicated a torn-up knee with packing tape and a staple gun, would probably be out here killing, since he was a shorter, stronger Jamal Crawford with like 20… » 7/31/15 11:57am Today 11:57am
