Why Do Tennis Players Say "Come On!" So Much?

On Tuesday, in front of a small crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the inconsistent Serbian Ana Ivanoivc had an early lead on Victoria Azarenka in the fourth round at the U.S. Open.

OK, these guys have now become way too internet famous to not be identified. We must know who they are. How did they afford those seats? Are they brothers, or just bros? Did they wear matching t-shirts to the game and buy matching jerseys to wear over them? » 11/20/12 2:12pm 11/20/12 2:12pm

We're Searching For The Greatest Clip In College Gameday History

Back when I was going to school in the early 1990s, watching College GameDay was one of the highlights of my week. It still remains a rare diamond in the ESPN shitpile, left relatively unchanged since the early days of Chris, Lee, and Kirk (adding Desmond Howard to the mix was bullshit). But the show was at its… » 10/11/12 1:25pm 10/11/12 1:25pm

The top of the fifth inning of tonight's Yankees-Twins bout in Minneapolis was extra-spicy for Yankee fans viewing on WWOR (or on MLB Network's simulcast) as a voice seemed to interrupt Jayson Nix's at bat to talk about "play-in games" and someone or something being "fucking hot." » 9/25/12 10:09pm 9/25/12 10:09pm

Deadspin I-Team: What's The Story Behind Cole Hamels's Giant Bulge?

Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino puts on an annual fashion show to raise money for his foundation, which seems like a pretty neat thing to do. There are models, glitz, glamour, and a lot of Phillies players dressed up in fancy clothes. What a time! » 6/19/12 3:10pm 6/19/12 3:10pm

Which Mets Player's Dong Did SNY Broadcast After Santana's No-Hitter?…

Do You Know Any More About Patrick Kane's Drunken Saturday In Wisconsin?

Earlier today, we gleefully shared with you a compendium of photos of a blotto Patrick Kane. He was having good, clean fun at Saturday's Mifflin Street block party in Madison, or so we thought, anyway. We've since heard some things that don't reflect so well on Kaner. If you were at the Kollege Klub on Saturday, and… » 5/07/12 5:40pm 5/07/12 5:40pm
