Here's The Steve Gleason Bit That Got Three Atlanta Radio Hosts Fired

Today, former Saint Steve Gleason guested on SI's MMQB—no mean feat since he's in the later stages of ALS. He types using a program that tracks movements of his eyes, and his 4,500-word column took him four hours to compose. Around the same time the column was published, an Atlanta sports talk radio show did an… » 6/17/13 5:58pm 6/17/13 5:58pm

Legendary Homer Jack Edwards Compares One Bruin's Shot-Block To D-Day

So Gregory Campbell blocked a shot, broke his leg, and finished a shift. It was courageous, in the way these things are, and—to state the obvious—unworthy of this hallowed analogy, which Edwards presented (naturally) on WEEI. There will forever be a great gulf between the sacrifices of soldiers and hockey players,… » 6/07/13 6:15pm 6/07/13 6:15pm

Listen To Manti Te'o's Voicemails From Lennay Kekua/Ronaiah Tuiasosopo

In advance of this afternoon's interview, Katie Couric's show has released recordings of three voicemails provided by Manti Te'o. The messages were left on Te'o's phone by who he believed was Lennay Kekua. As the Daily News reported this morning, hoaxer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo claims he disguised his voice over the phone,… » 1/24/13 1:20pm 1/24/13 1:20pm

Mike Francesa Forgot To Turn In His Heisman Vote

The Heisman Trophy winner will be announced this Saturday, and it's going to be a good one. Will it be Johnny Manziel, the dual-threat QB who had to win the starting job and ended up setting SEC passing records? Will it be Manti Te'o, who anchored the defense that led Notre Dame back to the title game and national… » 12/07/12 1:25pm 12/07/12 1:25pm

Mitch Albom Was "Phony Sweet" And Other Highlights Of PTI's…

ESPN helpfully publishes an audio podcast of its popular Pardon The Interruption program daily for viewers who can't find their way to a television at 5:30 p.m. Eastern. Yesterday, though, we received numerous emails alerting us to the bizarre nature of yesterday's podcast. For one, it was more than three and a half… » 11/21/12 3:40am 11/21/12 3:40am

Here's A Radio Ad Using Smooth R&B To Sell Tactical Firearms To Women

The Paul Finebaum radio program is a must-listen on Mondays after Alabama losses, but almost as good as the panicked redneck phone calls are Finebaum's advertisers. Here's one we're told has been running a few months, from Hoover's Tactical Firearms in Birmingham. (That's the gun range that made news last week as the… » 11/12/12 5:05pm 11/12/12 5:05pm

Profane Rant By D-III Christian College's Golf Coach Is A Thing To…

You could forward through the first 1:55 of this clip to get to the yelling and the screaming and the oh-so-many bad words. You could. But you shouldn't, because the buildup is what makes the explosion so great. Calm, helpful strategy gives way to praise for the one player who shot a decent round, to violently… » 11/08/12 11:20pm 11/08/12 11:20pm

Packers Lineman Josh Sitton Is More Upset With Pete Carroll And Golden…

Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton, whose angry postgame tweets made him an Internet superstar (and quadrupled his follower count overnight), appeared on The Jim Rome Show today and remarked that while replacement officials "have no idea what they're doing" and stated he'd go on strike if it was possible, he… » 9/25/12 1:55pm 9/25/12 1:55pm

Bobby Valentine Goes Apeshit On A Boston Sports Radio Host

Bobby Valentine's tenure as Red Sox manager is, in all likelihood, coming to an end, which is sad, because whatever faults you can find with the favorite son of Stamford, Conn., at least he's genuine. Yeah, he might be a genuine nutcase, but such candor and expression should be considered refreshing in an age of… » 9/05/12 4:15pm 9/05/12 4:15pm

An Online Fantasy Football Gambling Site Is Using An Impersonator To…

When your company's website features a prominent "Is This Legal?" link on its homepage, it's probably in an industry engaging in some kind of questionable behavior. But there it is on the front page of fantasy football gambling site FanDuel, in which we're told that yes, it is legal (in 44 of the 50 states). » 8/29/12 5:10pm 8/29/12 5:10pm
