I don’t watch American Ninja Warrior all that often, but every time I do I find myself enjoying it far more than I expected. Last night, NBC aired Week 1 of the National Finals, and it was a rad time. Bunches of seasoned competitors were undone by a particularly difficult course, and Jessie Graff became the first…
Ilia Zakharov won the gold medal in the 3m springboard event at the 2012 Olympics. He made it all the way to the semi-finals at this year’s games, and that’s where his quest to win back-to-back golds went very wrong.
It’s Wimbledon, man. Everyone’s excited. I’m excited, you’re excited, and so is this line judge who wants to get the pre-match juices flowing with a few well-struck fist bumps:
Randy, welcome to the Steph Curry Ruined My Life support group. Why don’t you grab a coffee and a donut and have a seat next to Paul Allen.
You ready for some grim baseball, my friends? Then let me tell you about Steve Delabar, the Reds reliever who walked four straight batters with the bases loaded last night.
This one-on-one game, which Patrick Beverley decided to dominate, is like that scene in Rushmore where Bill Murray blocks the shit out of that kid, but for five minutes straight.
The Philadelphia Sixers invite you to enjoy the “scrap, hustle, drives, step-backs, and spirit” that define T.J. McConnell, a rookie point guard who averaged six points and 4.5 assists in 19 minutes per game this season, and starred in the grimmest of all 76er anecdotes.
Robert Horry, whose career scoring average is equal to the number of championship rings he has, did Tracy McGrady very dirty on today’s episode of The Jump.
You know that sickly feeling you get you’re watching a particularly violent scene in a horror movie that just goes on for way too long? That’s how watching Ernie Els seven-putt his way to a sextuple bogey on the first hole of the Masters will make you feel.
Of all the teams involved in this offseason’s game of Mediocre Quarterback Musical Chairs, the Cleveland Browns had the most options. Of course, this only meant that the Browns had an array of sinkholes to fall into, and they seem to have finally chosen the one with Robert Griffin III at the bottom.
Are you ready for this shit? I don’t think you’re ready for this shit. Okay, sit down, put this video on full screen, and make sure you have a cigarette handy. You’re going to need it after watching these mind-blowing highlights.
What’s worse than watching your team bone itself out of a playoff victory with a missed 27-yard field goal? Celebrating because you thought the kick was good.
If not for all the bad vibes coming off the 76ers and Lakers, there’s a good chance that the 12-14 Rockets would be wearing the Saddest Team in the League crown. This team was supposed to be a Western Conference superpower, but their coach has been fired, their superstar often plays like he’s been dosed, and reporters…
The Philadelphia 76ers, now in year three of their shameless rebuild, are 0-15. Playing for an 0-15 team that ranks dead last in points per game and leads the league in turnovers can’t be much fun, so it’s no surprise that 76ers Players Looking Really Sad has started to become an internet genre of sorts.
Will from Queens was feeling a little emotional yesterday morning, and who can blame him? His Mets are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, he just watched Ruben Tejada get his leg broken on a dirty play, and Matt Harvey? Don’t even get Will started on Matt Harv—[stifles oncoming sobs]—Matt Harvey, man!
The Washington Nationals, the saddest and most dysfunctional team in the league, are somehow still playing baseball games. I kind of assumed that everyone had already packed up their shit and gone home for the winter, but nope! They’re still out there, pitchin’ and hittin’ and catchin’. At least Max Scherzer and Bryce…
Here is an internal memo that was recently sent to ESPN employees:
That damn slant route that cost the Seahawks the Super Bowl was hard for anyone to comprehend, but I can’t imagine any Seattle fans had a worse time watching it unfold than these crab fishermen:
The video above—which comes to us from A Walk In The Park—is narrated by NYC parks worker Daniel Roca. When Roca arrived at his job at Sara D. Roosevelt Park yesterday, he found the basement of his building flooded with poop. And then the poop almost killed him.
The Los Angeles Lakers held a press conference today to introduce new players Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams, and Brandon Bass. It was boring, up until the point one reporter asked the trio if they’d heard from Kobe Bryant yet.
