76ers Also Deny Affiliation With Wingnut Dinesh D'Souza

Earlier today, we reached out to the Sacramento Kings to find out if they really were running an in-arena promotion with disgraced '80s relic/wingnut Dinesh D'Souza, as D'Souza had claimed on his Twitter account. The Kings told us they were not affiliated in any way with D'Souza, who then sent another tweet promoting… » 10/31/14 6:26pm 10/31/14 6:26pm

James Dolan And His Dopey Band Went On TV And Things Got Awkward

James Dolan went on Good Day New York this morning to talk about his corny-ass blues band and play multiple(!) songs in studio. He was on the show for so long, but the highlight of his appearance was when co-anchor Rosanna Scotto couldn't remember the name of Dolan's band while introducing them for the last song.… » 9/16/14 12:53pm 9/16/14 12:53pm

Danny Amendola Draws Ire Of Insufferable Boston Media

Boston sports media sucks, and a good way to make it worse is to toss it some mildly controversial chum while the boredom of the NFL offseason has it itching for something to be shitty and annoying about. That's what Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola did on Tuesday when he hung up in the middle of an interview… » 6/05/14 4:11pm 6/05/14 4:11pm

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. It was the kind of thing that was written specifically to rile up… » 1/02/14 2:43pm 1/02/14 2:43pm

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 1:21pm 12/27/13 1:21pm

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

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. But we wanted to give Reilly's poetic skills a chance to stand on their own… » 5/21/13 2:42pm 5/21/13 2:42pm
