Get Ready To Endure Bud Selig's Season-Long Victory Lap

Remember when Mariano Rivera turned the 2013 baseball season into a goodbye tour of sorts, and everyone loved it because Mo is one of the most universally admired baseball players in history? Well now you're going to hate it forever, because it set in motion the worst idea ever: a Bud Selig goodbye tour. » 1/14/14 4:19pm 1/14/14 4:19pm

Murray Chass Is Everything That's Wrong With The Hall Of Fame Election

Murray Chass, a once-great baseball reporter turned bitter crank, recently revealed his 2013 Hall of Fame ballot in a blog post in which he proudly stated that he did not vote for Craig Biggio or Mike Piazza because he believes that they used steroids.

The Redskins' Incompetent PR Guy Is Also A Giant Cry Baby

We've met Tony Wyllie—the Washington Redskins' deeply stupid, duplicitous shitbag of a PR flack—around these parts before. He's the man who once compared Dan Snyder's ridiculous libel suit against Dave McKenna to the plight of Egyptian protestors in Tahrir Square. He's also the guy who threatened to sue a a radio… » 12/27/13 2:21pm 12/27/13 2:21pm

Donald Sterling Is Still Doing What He Can To Sink The Clippers

Clipper fans, here is a sobering reminder that despite the fact that your team is better than it has ever been and is poised to supplant the Lakers as the toast of L.A., you are still rooting for a franchise that is owned by a racist shitbag who will always be this close to ruining everything. » 10/29/13 10:20am 10/29/13 10:20am

Hey, Everyone, Check Out Pete Prisco's Tim Tebow Impression

Here's Pete Prisco, odious football columnist and wearer of cargo jorts weird shorts, getting into a little tête-à-tête with some Jaguars fans at this month's "Sign Tim Tebow" rally.

Has Any Coach Ever Done Less With More Than Lane Kiffin?

Watch enough football for long enough, and eventually you'll see everything. I believe this: In this calendar year alone we've seen a one-point safety, a Heisman finalist cop to having an imaginary girlfriend, and a 300-pound left tackle score on a hook-and-lateral, among other improbable feats. And I believe that, at… » 9/12/13 4:00pm 9/12/13 4:00pm

Jay Mariotti Has A Website And A Shitty Radio Show [CORRECTED]

We Had A Seventh-Grade English Teacher Grade Rick Reilly's Poem

Remember last week, when Rick Reilly tried to pass off this stupid poem as a sports column? Since he's an adult who gets paid an exorbitant amount of money to write about sports, Reilly was rightly lambasted by most everyone who saw his poem.

Report: James Dolan Fired A Security Guard Who Didn't Recognize Him…

Knicks owner James Dolan is an asswipe and a schmuck, and according to the New York Post, he is also a giant asshole.
