Let's Relive Mary Carillo's Great American Badminton Rant

If you've watched any of NBC's Olympic coverage, you've probably found yourself enjoying the work of Mary Carillo, whose woman-on-the-scene reports are one of the more enjoyable parts of the network's coverage of the games. But Carillo's never been better than she was at the 2004 summer games, when she unleashed one… » 2/11/14 9:59am 2/11/14 9:59am

Why Your Cardinals Suck

The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates last night, because the Cardinals don't like it when another team like the Pirates or Nationals dares to threaten their self-appointed status as America's Baseball Sweethearts. They'll move on to face the GLORY BOY Dodgers in the NLCS, and somehow the Cardinals and… » 10/10/13 2:20pm 10/10/13 2:20pm

The Greatest Yankees Meltdown Ever Captured On Tape [NSFW]

Here's a cool old relic from the last great era of Yankees dysfunction. It's a clip of Hall of Fame reliever Goose Gossage losing his shit in front of the New York media in 1982—the beginning of a miserable, drawn-out decade for the organization, when all that '70s glory turned to pinstriped shit. This year has… » 8/19/13 6:18pm 8/19/13 6:18pm

Fuck You, Bill Belichick

I was close, Bill Belichick. I was thissss close to spending an entire NFL season free of Tebowmania, or Tebow Time, or whatever fucking brand stamp ESPN decides to put on all its coverage of the Jesusback. I was really looking forward to it, too. I was gonna watch every game safe in the knowledge that Tim Tebow and… » 6/11/13 10:03am 6/11/13 10:03am

Is Drive-By Masturbation At 90 MPH A Sign We've Made Cars Too Easy To…

Driving a car isn't as difficult as it was just a few years ago thanks to a focus on driver aids and electronic intervention designed to make us safer. But we've now gotten to the point where people can drive and masturbate out the window at high speed. It might be time to dial things back a little. » 4/09/13 4:24pm 4/09/13 4:24pm

Taste Test: Will Dorito-Sheathed Tacos Be The End Of Us All?

You saunter up to the counter at your local Taco Bell, you order your Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco (taking care not to actually say all of that, for fear of creating the accurate impression that you have paid rapt attention to the television advertisements and planned this trip in advance; instead affecting your best… » 3/16/13 3:00pm 3/16/13 3:00pm

We’ve Translated This Apoplectic Irish Soccer Fan's Rant For Those Not…

A few weeks ago, Juventus defeated Celtic 3-0 in Champions League play. Soon after, this video of a mildly distressed Celtic fan appeared on the internet. We do not know who this young woman is, and we do not have any idea what she is saying in this video, but we do know that her grief is very real and also very loud. » 2/25/13 2:50pm 2/25/13 2:50pm

"What A Joke This Sport Is!" Jeff Van Gundy Is Not A Fan Of The…

The Thunder's beat-down of the Lakers last night got a little boring towards the end, as beat-downs will, and unlike some spectators, Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy were contractually obligated to remain in their seats. Naturally, talk turned to the designated hitter, and—like many people, but in his inimitable way—Van … » 1/12/13 2:15pm 1/12/13 2:15pm
