Just over one year ago, I wrote an op-ed with the headline “Fuck Your Air Conditioner, Ceiling Fans Forever.” Yesterday, as temperatures in New York began creeping into the 90s, I bought a window A.C. unit. Yes, America, it finally happened: I was wrong.
Noted doofus and Stickum enthusiast Dwight Howard appeared on Inside the NBA Tuesday night, which had much of our staff preemptively dreading his appearance. What followed was a surprisingly self-aware and measured assessment of his own reputation and motivations. While we shouldn’t overcorrect and absolve him of any…
Chicago ABC station WLS issued an on-air apology last night after using a McDonald’s restaurant over-the-shoulder graphic to illustrate a story on Laquan McDonald, the 17-year-old killed by police in 2014:
Clippers star Blake Griffin spoke to the media today for the first time since he broke his hand punching friend and Clippers’ equipment staffer Matias Testi in the face, and apologized profusely for it.
The NBA suspended Sacramento Kings guard Rajon Rondo for one game without pay after he called referee Bill Kennedy a “faggot” in a Dec. 3 game. (Kennedy publicly came out after the incident.) Rondo tweeted a statement, which wasn’t actually an apology, but the weirdest part is that his statement reads like a condensed…
So here’s the thing about romantic relationships: They’re work.
The tough thing about writing a definitive guide to anniversaries is that every couple should, quite rightly, handle them differently.
The popular Christian vlogger Sam Rader—best known for “surprising” his wife with her own positive pregnancy test in a viral video—has admitted to using an account on the cheating website Ashley Madison. In a YouTube video with his wife Nia by his side, Sam claims that God has forgiven him for seeking extramarital…
Boy meets girl. Boy and girl date. Boy and girl break up. Boy, desperate to get his girl back, makes a batshit insane website. We have found that website and it is gut-wrenchingly pathetic, mind-bogglingly clueless. It wouldn't be out of place in a police report.
My first Drunkspin post was last summer's "36 Cheap American Beers, Ranked." It will almost certainly be the most widely read thing I ever publish. Kurt Loder and Steve Inskeep tweeted about it, and it got me booked onto one really cool AM-radio show in Minnesota and one really obnoxious beer podcast in Brooklyn.…
Last week, a gross, rapey email sent to the entirety Georgia Tech's Phi Kappa Tau fraternity by the house's social chair went viral. Rightfully so; it was a rapey, misogynistic piece of trash that referred to getting women as "luring rapebait." Now, the author of the infamous letter has offered an apology— and a damn…
Oh, that hurts.
Paula Deen's first vague video apology didn't go over so hot, so she's just released another. This version is more rambling and finds her sitting before a giant tray of make-up—presumably the same make-up that was used to render her skin a fetching shade of burnt sienna for the prequel.
So Paula Deen recorded ANOTHER video. This one seems targeted to the Today show.
On Sunday, the Jets had the ball deep in Arizona territory and a one-point lead. The directive came in from the Cardinals' sideline: Let them score a touchdown, so Arizona could get the ball back down eight with more than a minute remaining. Sound advice, though it was mooted when Shonn Greene intentionally slid at…
Ben Roethlisberger may be a "jagoff" notorious for his barroom antics, but when an item showed up in ESPN's televised rundown before Monday Night Football tonight titled "Roethlisberger Drink & Drunk," it caught many viewers by surprise.
Charlotte reporter Dan Tordjman offered a Twitter apology yesterday and his employer, ABC affiliate WSOC, issued an on-air mea culpa in the aftermath of his spreading a false rumor about Robinson Cano being busted for performance-enhancing drugs by MLB.
Car seats are used to safely secure children inside of automobiles. They are not baseball gloves and should not be used for such a purpose. When SportsCenter showed the highlight of a Houston Astros fan attempting to utilize such a device for exactly that, an exasperated Bram Weinstein asked, "Is it Trailer Park Day?"
