We'll Pay For Video Of Dana Jacobson Chugging Vodka From The Bottle And…

Yesterday, upon hearing the news that Dana Jacobson intends to leave ESPN, we hoped to pay our respects by posting a video clip of our favorite moment from her time in Bristol. Alas, actual footage of Jacobson chugging vodka from the bottle and "cursing like a sailor," in the words of the Press of Atlantic City, has… » 3/28/12 6:55pm 3/28/12 6:55pm

How Drunk Football Fans Used To Get Their World Series Fix

Yeah, we're a pretty spoiled bunch these days. Smartphones and tablet computers allow us to catch real-time video wherever we are. It wasn't so easy back in 1986. If life, the universe, and everything decided that two of your favorite teams just had to play on the same night, you had some big decisions to make. And… » 3/06/12 10:50pm 3/06/12 10:50pm

Here's What It Looks Like To Accidentally Flip Your Dirtbike While…

We don't have a lot of information on this video, other than that it stars someone named "Junior" who pulls a wheelie while riding his Yamaha YZ450F with some buddies and accidentally flips his bike all the way around. "New tires" are blamed, and the GOPRO camera catches everything—including Junior's pained reaction… » 2/14/12 12:30pm 2/14/12 12:30pm

The C-Roll's Happy Ending: A Back-Row Handjob At A Marlins Game (NSFW)

The finale of the C-Roll brings us, presumably, to what we now call Sun Life Stadium, where young love once possibly blossomed in the back row of some forgotten section—the details are now lost to history. There's no game audio attached to this one, so there's no way to determine when it was shot, or what kind of… » 9/27/11 8:00pm 9/27/11 8:00pm

C-Roll Stash: Cleavage At The Ballpark, Cleavage At The Boxing Match,…

We are nearing the end of the C-Roll footage, America. After today, only a single clip remains, so please, gather 'round to celebrate this disgusting national treasure. We've seen it all, haven't we? SkyDome sex, cheap seat sex, bleacher blowjobs, and possible flagpole sex. And you can't un-see any of it! » 9/23/11 8:00pm 9/23/11 8:00pm

More From The C-Roll Stash: Boobs And People With Boobs Eating Ice…

The origins of the C-Roll, from which we've been posting excerpts all week, are a bit of a mystery. We know, thanks to our anonymous contributor, that the video had "been passed around throughout the years" and added to by various production assistants and cameramen. Somewhere along the way, though, one of those… » 9/21/11 8:00pm 9/21/11 8:00pm

Broadcast People: We'll Pay For Old Footage Of Things Like That Fenway…

Over the years, Deadspin has hosted some ESPN footage that was never intended for air: There was Chris Berman berating the MNF production staff, and more recently a Fenway fingerblast from 1995. (You might also recall the Bill O'Reilly "Fuck it, we'll do it live" video.) These videos first popped up, unheralded, on… » 8/31/11 4:10pm 8/31/11 4:10pm

At Last, Video Evidence That Mike Laga Really Did Hit A Foul Ball Out…

This is great. On Sept. 15, 1986, Mike Laga, one of those light-hitting Cardinals players whom St. Louis fans are always applauding for moving the runners over, supposedly knocked a foul ball clear out of the old Busch Stadium. Because we have all lost our capacity for wonder, this feat has lately gone in for a bit… » 8/11/11 11:55am 8/11/11 11:55am

In 1995, An ESPN Cameraman Captured Fenway Fans Having An…

Oh, 1997. Back when we thought murdering Vince Foster was the worst our government could do. Back when we could watch both Mad About You and Caroline in the City. Back when the Red Sox were so mediocre and uninteresting that over-the-jorts horndoggery could occur in a half-empty Fenway Park. These were the lean years… » 8/07/11 3:00pm 8/07/11 3:00pm

Here's John Sterling and Clyde Frazier Calling A 1989 Hawks-Bulls Game

Walt "Clyde" Frazier and John Sterling, for better or worse, respectively, are two of New York's most recognizable sportscasters. Sterling has called literally every Yankees game in my lifetime, and Frazier has been on Knicks games even longer. Putting these men in a booth together in 2011 would be some combination… » 7/08/11 3:30pm 7/08/11 3:30pm
