Clay Travis, a Fox Sports contributor and man who has tried to build his latest persona around the phrase “Don’t be a pussy,” spent over 2,800 words complaining on his blog because an airline wouldn’t let his son, who had lice, fly on the plane.
Yesterday morning, SB Nation’s Cowboys blog, Blogging The Boys, published an article about the NFL’s ongoing investigation into domestic violence allegations against Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott. The post was a reaction to reports that the league may be getting ready to hand Elliott a one- or two-game…
On Tuesday night, the editor of SLC Dunk, SB Nation’s Utah Jazz blog, posted an article about Gordon Hayward signing with the Boston Celtics. The post contained two attempted jokes that came off as homophobic, and it was deleted following the appendage of two lengthy editor’s notes. Now it appears that the editor who…
By now, you know the saga of the Trump CNN tweet: a clumsy wrestling .gif the president sent out (with no hat tip!) that triggered the usual round of establishment tut-tutting and, at first, promised to be yet another disposable Trump mini-scandal that occupied everyone for two minutes before moving on to the NEXT…
David Price has been extra salty with reporters this year. Right off the bat, he declared that he wouldn’t be speaking to the media except on days when he starts, and then he got into a strange shouting match with CSNNE’s Evan Drellich after a game last month. Lately, it’s been more of the same.
ESPN human ringtone Stephen A. Smith is responding tonight to a letter from Lamar Odom’s lawyer, tweeted Friday by Odom with the hashtag “#slander,” saying that his comments were meant solely to attack Phil Jackson and not the former NBA star’s struggles with drug addiction.
Until he got swept away by the recent round of layoffs, Ron Jaworski dissected Xs and Os for several of ESPN’s NFL-related programs.

Maybe you have heard that some or all of the Golden State Warriors may decline an invitation to celebrate their NBA championship at Donald Trump’s White House, if Donald Trump chooses to invite them, which he has not yet. Maybe you have also heard that yesterday morning, an angry man with Bernie Sanders themes on his…
The Big Lead’s Stephen Douglas has done the world a service today by discovering some old clips of Stephen A. Smith talking about sex, relationships, and what an accomplished sex-doer he is.
Without hyperbole, we have found one of the worst major-newspaper columns since Mark Whicker left the yard.
The thing about having known for more than a calendar year how the 2017 NBA Finals would go is that by the time it actually happened, man, the Well of Takes was sending up buckets of straight-up mud. The basketblogs are bad this week, my friends! They’re bad.
The biggest chess story of the year is uplifting—and bogus.
Hank Williams Jr., a man who has served for decades as living proof of just how far you can go in America simply by sharing a name with your more talented father, is returning to ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast to open the show with his “Are You Ready For Some Football?” theme song.
Barstool Sports, a blog for dipshits, by dipshits, caught hell Tuesday after senior director of editorial strategy and growth—this does not sound like a real job—Chris Spagnuolo wrote a blog about how Rihanna might be fat. Spagnuolo believed the criticism came because no one read past the headline, which was “Is…
A hail-mary apology couldn’t save former ESPN and, now, former Denver Post columnist Terry Frei after the seven-time state sportswriter of the year tweeted his disapproval of Japanese driver Takuma Sato winning yesterday’s Indy 500.
