In the spring of 2014, I paid a woman $200 for permission to let my eight-month-old son cry himself to sleep. Technically, what she did was (1) spend an hour drawing up a “sleep evaluation” based on a “walk-through audit” of my apartment and (2) have a brief chat with my husband and me. Those were nice touches, and…
One of the best things about basketball is that it is not baseball. I enjoy both sports equally, but basketball has always had an edge in the not-employing-humorless-dickwads department, which means you rarely ever see NBA players or coaches talking about “class” or “playing the right way.” The Atlanta Hawks are…
This proud papa is a Pirates fan, but he wasn’t too proud to celebrate the feat of hauling in Welington Castillo’s fourth-inning homer in Arizona tonight. Multitasking? Call me when he does it while holding a baby in one hand and a beer in the other.
For an exercise in learning compassion, a Durham, N.C. transitional kindergarten teacher had her class write letters to members of the North Carolina men’s basketball team, who lost the national championship in spectacular fashion. A good idea for a lesson, but more importantly, The News & Observer shot video of these…
The quickest way to improve your cooking—besides throwing a stick of butter into everything—is to throw onions into everything. Onions work with every cuisine, they’re versatile, and they taste amazing. However much onion a recipe calls for should be doubled, at least, no matter the recipe.
Having a new baby sounds, to put it lightly, terrifying. I imagine this is especially true at first, when particularly helpless infants are sent home with necessarily inexperienced parents. Baby-wise friends and family members can help, but it’s still pretty dangerous to put a total neophyte—like you, for example—in…
The Sacramento Kings treated fans to a baby race during halftime of yesterday’s game, and oh man did those babies shame themselves.
Complex ran a fun feature today, where they asked 18 different journalists who have covered the Lakers for their favorite Kobe story. There are some gems in there—like the time Kobe and the team’s play-by-play announcer raced down the freeway—but the best entry comes from Los Angeles Times writer Eric Pincus, who got…
Hey, Landon Donovan has spawned!
Cam Newton recently became a father, and revealed that his son’s name is Chosen. Why that name? In part, because Newton didn’t want his kid to have to live with the pressure of being named Cam Newton Jr.
Last week, we were treated to the story of Cavaliers swingman Iman Shumpert channeling MacGyver in order to help his wife, Teyana Taylor, give birth to their daughter in the bathroom. Thanks to the Daily Mail, we now have audio of a 911 operator walking Shumpert through the process.
Cavaliers swingman Iman Shumpert’s wife, Teyana Taylor, just posted a rather incredible birth announcement on her Instagram page:
Would you listen to 10 minutes of Vin Scully talking about happy babies? Of course you would. Unfortunately, we only have half a minute here, but listen to it anyway. It’s quite relaxing.
Iman Shumpert and singer Teyana Taylor are having a baby. The Cleveland Cavalier posted the sonogram on his Instagram, and announced plans to name the girl Iman Shumpert Jr. Relax. It’s not a big deal.
The biggest controversy in sports this summer, maybe even this year, occurred last week at the prestigious Pan-O-Prog baby Crawl-A-Thon in Lakeville, Minn.
We had another baby-in-hand catch Tuesday night. I don’t see this trend of fathering ending well! This particular catch was also ruled fan interference. Here’s video of all the shenanigans:
The NHL offseason just started, but a dumb/fun conspiracy has already bloomed: Does Jonathan Bernier’s baby’s onesie hint at him leaving the Maple Leafs?
We like sports babies around here, because sports babies are cuter than regular babies. That’s a fact. So it is with great pleasure that we welcome Steph Curry’s daughter, Riley, into the ranks of the world’s great sports babies.
If there’s one thing you can always count on a baseball player in a high-stress situation to be, it’s a sensitive weenie. Allow me to direct your attention to this moment, from yesterday’s game between the Giants and Padres.
