Bill Simmons launched a new podcast this week called Bill Don't Lie (groan). It's the latest place to find Simmons giving endless dissertations of his basketball theories, and there's something a little off about it.

Aaron Rodgers Shuts Down Manbaby Reporter

Aaron Rodgers and his girlfriend, Olivia Munn, were sitting courtside at Wisconsin's Elite 8 victory over Arizona on Saturday, and because Rodgers is basically royalty in the state of Wisconsin, they got to go onto the court and join the postgame festivities.

Hey, Look, It's Jay Mariotti Posing For Some Glamour Shots

It's been a while since we've heard from Jay Mariotti, an unspeakably bad writer and stain of a human being who once pleaded no contest to misdemeanor stalking and assault charges after getting into a physical altercation with his then-girlfriend.

Colin Cowherd Loves Oregon Because Of All The Wonderful White People

On his radio show today, butt-faced shitbag Colin Cowherd dropped the dog whistle for once while yakking his way through a segment in which he seeded all of the states in order of how much he likes them.

Even The Chicago Cubs Are Owning Darren Rovell

You would think that after a career full of attempts at being clever on Twitter backfiring, living BrandBot Darren Rovell would give up the bantering aspect of the platform and stick to reporting on whichever 8,000 calorie food abomination is being introduced in a minor league ballpark near you.

Attention: Stop Taking Photos In The Locker Room Of Half-Naked LeBron

Common courtesy dictates that you don't take photographs of half-naked strangers without their permission. Also, when you get caught doing so by said strangers, you should fess up instead of lying. This advice might seem obvious, but not so to three unnamed members of the basketball media. » 3/17/15 9:12pm 3/17/15 9:12pm

Don Lemon Is Great At His Job

Last night, Don Lemon took to his show, CNN Tonight, to host a discussion of, as he put it, The N-Word. It wasn't the first time he'd done so; nearly two years ago, he devoted an entire special to this topic. Famously, note cards were used, and the question of whether the words "cracker" and "nigger" hold the same… » 3/17/15 3:07pm 3/17/15 3:07pm

Retiring From NFL To Juggle Grenades Is A Bad Idea, Says Mike Florio

Bright and promising 24-year-old 49ers linebacker Chris Borland announced his retirement yesterday, after just one season in the NFL. He wants to preserve his neurological and cognitive functioning, and figures a decade of smashing his head into things isn't the best way to do it. Seems reasonable! Might I… » 3/17/15 11:57am 3/17/15 11:57am

Did Dan Snyder Kill A Redskins Critic's Radio Show?

Bruce Allen is the Washington Redskins' president and an unwitting jokester, well-known for such thigh-slappers as his claim that no matter how bad the team is, they're "winning off the field." He accidentally inspired more guffaws last week by claiming that his boss, team owner Dan Snyder, "doesn't get involved" in… » 3/16/15 7:30pm 3/16/15 7:30pm

This Bill Walton Tangent Is One For The Ages

Bill Walton has carved out a nice space for himself as the Harry Caray of basketball broadcasts, and he went on one of his weird tangents during last night's game between Stanford and Utah. I don't want to spoil anything, but make sure you stick it out to the end. » 3/13/15 10:08am 3/13/15 10:08am

Jim Boeheim Doesn't Give A Fuck, And Why Should He?

Syracuse lost by 14 to NC State today, which ends their season, given that they have banned themselves—more on that in a bit—from playing in the postseason, which includes the ACC tournament.

TSN Will No Longer Air Tweets On Live Broadcasts

TSN sure screwed up when they broadcast a joke tweet saying that Joffrey Lupul was sleeping with Maple Leaf teammate Dion Phaneuf's wife, Elisha Cuthbert, but they've come up with a foolproof plan to prevent this type of situation from ever occurring again: they're going to stop airing "public" tweets on live… » 3/04/15 8:44pm 3/04/15 8:44pm
