So Snapchat has chosen to celebrate 4/20 with a totally advisable Bob Marley filter that gives you blackface and dreadlocks. They’ll be pulling it and humbly apologizing any time now; I am typing this as fast as I can. Anyway, here are some experiments I’ve conducted. Thank you for your time, which I realize is…
ESPN’s Zach Lowe just dropped a short, fun oral history about the time the New Jersey Nets tried to change their name to the Swamp Dragons. Why would they do this? Because as former Nets president Jon Spoelstra put it, “Every time I look out the window here, I see this swamp... Dragons are mythical, and fun.”
I don’t work out, but I still feel comfortable saying that this looks like a pretty dumb way to exercise:
This old dude right here is apparently known as “Boogieman,” and is a fixture at Kentucky basketball games. Someone please tell Boogieman that he is far too old to just go around scooping people up:
Welcome back to Ask a Lawyer, wherein I, a lawyer, respond to your questions. Got a vexing legal issue? Send it over, or drop it in the comments below.
If you’re unversed on decades-old Pro Bowls, you’d be forgiven for thinking Fall Out Boy’s 2014 performance was the most offensive halftime show in the history of the NFL’s all-star game. But no! The 1967 Pro Bowl “The Taming Of The West” halftime show featured a tribute to Indian massacres, as noted by Bryan Curtis.…
This video comes with a pretty long lead up to the climax, but I’m urging you to watch the whole thing from beginning to end. You’ll appreciate the payoff that much more if you do.
Those little electric scooter thingies that everyone insists on calling hoverboards are a well-known menace, but that hasn’t stopped the Carolina Panthers from doing very unwise things with them.
Here’s a helpful tip for any New York City government employees who have ever worked with the NFL: don’t accept those free Super Bowl tickets.
Hey, did you know that taunting a police dog in the state of Pennsylvania is a felony? I’m willing to bet Ray-Ray Armstrong, the Raiders linebacker who is reportedly under investigation for doing just that, didn’t know it was a felony.
This is why the celebratory Gatorade bath is usually a two-man operation:
Serena Williams just posted a highly entertaining story about her brush with a possible thief to her Facebook page. This is what happens when you are dumb enough to try and steal Serena Williams’s cell phone:
There comes a point in any 24-hour movie marathon when you’re bleary-eyed, you reek of jet-black coffee and unnatural foodstuffs, and you’re dreaming of nothing more than a hot shower and the soft embrace of a down comforter. You’re thinking to yourself, “Why the hell did I do this?” And you have no answer.
The Houston Astros, who just lost Game 4 of the ALDS 9-6, were up by five runs on the Royals in the seventh inning. That’s when Texas Governor Greg Abbott decided to send a very bad tweet.
Oh, you have a tribal band around your bicep? I can tell you were cool in 1997. Maybe it’s a butterfly on the small of your back or a shamrock on your foot to celebrate your shred of Irish heritage. They might call up feelings of regret, but bad tattoos are nothing if not stories to tell. So tell us about yours.
The son of Jets tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson learned a valuable lesson about Twitter yesterday. The lesson, as always, is to never tweet.
One of the lamest things a guy can do when confronted with a question such as, “Hey, man, what’s up with you and [woman you’ve been seen hanging out with]?” is bashfully dance around the question in a way that suggests that, yes, there is indeed something going on with that. NBA player Matt Barnes recently learned…
Here is a very bad tweet:
Deadspin is nominally a sports blogsite. There are no major sports in action right now unless you want to count baseball, which is a bad and weak sport. So we at Deadspin started talking about comic books, because at least 100 grim, gritty trailers for superhero movies came out over the weekend. Eventually, we…
