What's more American than beginning the Major League season spread over four days in two weeks on two continents? How about an American singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" in Sweden? Here's the first in a series of exclusive renditions of our national pastime's theme song we'll be featuring on Deadspin throughout…
Ken Burns's The Tenth Inning has a lot going for it. However, thorough as he may be, Burns missed out on one of the biggest stories of the last two decades in baseball.
Shaun Smith's humorous, ungentlemanly conduct the last two weeks has been an endless source of joy, so why not set video of Smith's junk twisting to Da Lench Mob's "All On My Nut Sac?"
Brett Favre held a press conference today to officially announce he was returning to the Vikings for one more failed Super Bowl run. While he discussed the physical toll that the game has taken on him, it became clear: Brett's really old.
Brandon Morrow became the pitcher he never was for the Mariners yesterday, bedeviling the Tampa Bay Rays and striking out 17 in maybe the most dominant pitching performance of the year. Music via Annie.

It's been a wild ride this past month, hasn't it? Let's take one last look at the goals from the third-place and final games of the World Cup with some assistance from music that isn't even close to being culturally sensitive.

Before our first semifinal match today, let's look back on the weekend's action with all the goals scored to music that might offend the more culturally sensitive among you. Enjoy.
Two hard-fought games today. Paraguay bested Japan on PKs and Spain grinded out a 1-0 victory over Portugal. Grinded, schminded. Let's relive the "ese" countries' ousters with goal videos wrapped in a tight layer of cultural insensitivity. To the tape!
The Netherlands and Brazil did what we expected yesterday and dominated Slovakia and Chile, respectively, each side managing a handful of very fancy goals. But fancy, schmancy. Their athletic prowess is no match for our cultural ignorance. Let's go to the video.
The U.S. and England bowed out of the tournament this weekend, while Germany and Argentina showed they might be the two best squads left. Exciting as it was, everyone seemed to act sensitively—in regards to culture, that is. No more!
