When former Funky Bunch boss Marky Mark claimed to Mike & Mike that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had contacted him personally to lodge complaints about HBO’s Ballers, we called bullshit. Not only is Goodell too busy with more important things to bother with that kind of task, but even if he weren’t he’d call someone…
Yeah. Can you feel it baby? Thus start the lyrics to Marky Mark’s 1991 and only hit “Good Vibrations,” but if the former Funky Bunch leader is to be believed Roger Goodell’s answer is “No. I am not feeling it,” if the inquiry is in regard to HBO’s series Ballers, of which the retired rapper is an executive producer.
The opening sequence of Any Given Wednesday, HBO’s new weekly talk show about things Bill Simmons thinks are cool and fun, follows a bunch of stray objects floating inside a vacuum, which must be a metaphor for something. As the rapidly cut segment goes on, we watch all the sports balls, sports shoes, and sports…
Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons’ new weekly sports talk show, debuted this evening on HBO. It was ... exactly what you’d expect. It opened with a segment on the NBA Finals and LeBron’s greatness (featuring a Teen Wolf comparison less than two minutes in) before Charles Barkley joined the show to lay down his takes…
Jim Lampley closed last night’s live boxing telecast with a final word on what Muhammad Ali meant to him—and the world—with an observation about The Greatest that choked up the longtime HBO announcer.
There are plenty of conspiracy theories surrounding the Rams’ selection of Michael Sam in the 2014 draft, all centering around the NFL’s desire to avoid the PR of watching the league’s first openly gay prospect go undrafted. But this is a new one.
With just over a month and a half to go, we finally have it—our first proper look at Game of Thrones’ sixth season. Without the books to guide us, we don’t really know what’s going to happen (or, we’re not supposed to). But we can still break down a lot of what we can see in this new trailer. Care to join us?
Last season’s Hard Knocks brought us Vince Wilfork showin’ off that bod underneath some overalls, Brian Cushing chucking, and a solid Macho Man impression. The latest team to bring us training camp fights, barfs, and hopefully those two at the same time could be the New Orleans Saints. According to a report from Pro…
Spoiler Alert: They don’t really let Will Ferrell pitch in Ferrell Takes the Field, his stunt HBO doc where he plays every position (plus designated hitter) for 10 different MLB teams during one day of 2015 spring training action in Arizona. No, in his 90-second stint with the Dodgers, he throws one quote-unquote…
The first season of Ballers started with a car crash, and its final episode featured Dwayne Johnson’s butt. Between those two important milestones, some other stuff happened.
True Detective’s chaotic, absurd second season wrapped up last night, but if you didn’t watch—or gave up early into the show’s run—we collected the best scenes from the entire season into a neat, two-minute compilation. This is all you really need to know.
19. “That’s one off the bucket list. Mexican standoff with actual Mexicans.”
Apologies if these thoughts on last night’s penultimate episode of True Detective come off as disjointed and confusing, though that would be a fitting homage to this entire season, but man, this show is a marvelous disaster. That lousy first episode was a sign of things to come.
We know that in the game of thrones, you win or you die. And we know who’s dead. So...who’s winning? We’ve put together a comprehensive video tracking all five seasons of HBO’s grimly set jawline spectacular Game of Thrones, so that you can quickly and easily know who’s winning, and who’s dying.
Last night’s tim-tam flim-flam Ballers, Baby, Ballers! television program on premium network HBO was either exactly what you needed after a holiday weekend or a bludgeoning to your skull, and possibly both. And the ballers? Well, this Independence Day weekend: They finally balled. And they balled hard.
It’s been another week, and another episode of HBO’s confidently bad and conspicuously drama-free football whatchamacallit Ballers, and the viewer is now being forced to reckon with a question: was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson cast in this role because his head so closely resembles a football? Discuss.
Okay, so here we’ve got the last scene from tonight’s True Detective, in which an Unexpected Event of Great Significance happens, which I will be wildly speculating upon in 1.5 paragraphs or less, so don’t get all sassy with me re: spoilers. Okay.
