Chris Sale didn’t pitch today against the Mets, but he did have time for a little pregame rock-paper-scissors with an autograph-seeking Mets fan. My man lost, like the White Sox have in his last two starts, and he graciously signed the autograph.
Or else you might end up at the bottom of a big pile of rabid Jazz fans.
On Nov. 2, someone on Twitter claimed that his uncle asked former Skins quarterback Joe Theismann for an autograph, and Theismann told the man to grow some tits. Wow, that’s harsh. Did Joe really do that? He responded today:
Did you like Pete Rose’s commentary work during the World Series? Well, either way, he didn’t work last night’s Game 4, and you won’t have a chance to see him work any more games for Fox. As it turns out, Rose left the booth rather suddenly—in the middle of the World Series—due to a “prior commitment.”
Okay, so there is no way to know for sure whether, "Pffffft, fuck it," is what Michael Jordan said to himself while misspelling Barack Obama's name on a birthday present for the goddamn President of the United States, but you wouldn't put it past him, would you?
Reader Chad sent along a photo of his friend's baseball, autographed by Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong. Under his signature, Wong referenced a Bible verse: "Psalms 3:16." That verse does not exist.
If you are in the market for a classic piece of baseball memorabilia, might we suggest this baseball signed by none other than the Bambino himself, Buld...Luly?
Save for a brief stint alongside Victor Martinez, John Lackey has worn No. 41 his entire professional life. But ahead of the deadline, he was traded to the Cardinals, who already had a No. 41 in reliever Pat Neshek. Favorite numbers don't come cheap.
Here's an RSVP posted on Reddit this morning, in which Peyton Manning regretfully declined to attend a fan's wedding. Such a polite young man!
We received this email from reader Philip, about a run-in last week with a certain NASCAR driver:
A reader named Joe sent this our way. It's an autograph he got on a bar napkin from Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Joe explained what happened in an email. This is that story, unedited. Be warned: There are no heroes here. There's a guy being a dick to Haley, and Haley being a dick right back, and…
Big-time college football! Where a university system chancellor can be indistinguishable from a Paul Finebaum caller. Administrator John Sharp sent out a bizarre screed that decried the biased and untrustworthy media, and declared Johnny Manziel innocent of all the allegations against him, before admitting he hadn't…
Ray Robinson? Terrific guy—great guy, in fact.
Dwayne Bowe seems to have a very strong relationship with the ladies who work at his dentist's office.
This comes to us from reader Andrew, whose friend received this autographed photo from former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Pete Mitchell. I doubt Mitchell signed too many autographs throughout his eight-year career, but it looks like when he did get the opportunity to do so, he made it count.
Josh Hamilton tossed this autographed ball to one lucky fan in the right field bleachers during last night's Angels-A's game. It's kind of weird.
Yesterday, former Atlanta Braves star and beloved-by-the-internet old dude Dale Murphy decided to celebrate President's Day by showing his Twitter followers a picture of one of his prized pieces of memorabilia: a baseball with Richard Nixon's autograph on it. The autograph reads, "To Dale Murphy, from one of his…
If you're getting ready to judge an athlete for something they said or did, take a breath. Are you outraged because their actions were morally indefensible? Or are you outraged because a columnist says you should be outraged? Because it's a columnist's job to read the paper and find something to get outraged about.…
