Recently, the readers of the esteemed Wall Street Journal were given an opportunity to share their opinion on “dunking,” the high-flying activity that has become all the rage of the basketball world.
This is the front page* of the Post on a day when one of the two or three most powerful men in New York state politics was arrested on corruption charges.
The Jets have chosen their next head coach, former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. He may or may not be the right man for the job, but he's sure as hell got the right name for it.
Here's today's Virginian-Pilot sports front, and it honors Stuart Scott with headlines referencing the late ESPN anchor's most well-known catchphrases.

Newspaper reporter Ed Castro was on the scene last night for Arrowhead Christian Academy's (Redlands, Calif.) home game against Western Christian. He had the ideal spot for getting video of ACA's tunnel entrance, up until the moment when he did not.
The best opinion of the day can be found among the Washington Post's letters to the editor. (The worst opinions of the day, as per usual, can be found in the Washington Post's opinions section.)
Dan Le Batard, as part of a stunt for his radio show, attempted to purchase a full-page ad in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. (A mockup, via @itsleooo, can be seen below.) It would have been paid for by interested Miamians via Kickstarter, and poked fun at LeBron James for not, as of yet, publicly thanking Miami fans.
According to the readers of the New York Daily News, these are the 15 (actually 17) most powerful people in New York sports:
After LeBron James announced that he was returning to Cleveland, The New York Times ran one of the coolest covers we've ever seen on its Saturday sports section. It turns out that the idea behind the cover was indirectly inspired by Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, because of course it was.
If there's one thing to be thankful for in the wake of Brazil's World Cup meltdown, it's that the host country's stunning 7-1 defeat gave Brazilian newspaper editors a chance to cut loose and really go all-in with the despair. With that in mind, let's survey (via Newseum) today's best, saddest Brazilian newspaper…
Everyone is gearing up for this afternoon's colossal clash between the U.S. and Germany, and the Germans are no exception. The cocky bastards that they are, almost all of the coverage in their papers pretty blatantly take shots at our boys.
It's full-on postmortem time in Spain and around the soccer world, as people grapple with La Roja's ignominious exit from this year's World Cup. One of the finest international runs the sport has ever seen went out not with a whimper, but with an embarrassing, well-documented shriek.
Today's New Orleans Times-Picayune features five pages of coverage of last night's WrestleMania at the Superdome—an event which managed to bleed over into the public consciousness more than usual, thanks in large part to the end of the Undertaker's streak. Still, it's odd to see wrestling get the front page of any…
[The Dayton Daily News' front page has some fun at Ohio State's expense.]
You'll find this full-page ad in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and it seems the Red Sox aren't done trolling everyone. "Your region, its people, and the entire Cardinals organization represent everything that's great about baseball." Damn it. We just spent a month breaking them down, and now Cards fans are going to…
It's since been deleted (of course), and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has yet to offer an apology or an explanation, but some announcement about their account being hacked will probably hit the Twitter machine any moment now.
Years of prayers were finally and officially answered: as of Friday, the Maloofs are no longer NBA owners. Sure, they drove the team into the ground, and sure, they did everything possible to sell the franchise to an owner who would move it from Sacramento, and sure, just two weeks ago George Maloof was hiding in a…
