Nick Young Is Clapping Back At Robert Flores For Ethering Iggy Azalea

As Jigga's Law states, for every "Ether" there is an equal and opposite "Super Ugly" as the offended party seeks to redress their injuries in diss form. And while Iggy Azalea herself has henceforth been quiet about the smackdown ESPN's Robert Flores laid on her today, her boyfriend Nick Young has come out swinging. » 3/02/15 2:06pm 3/02/15 2:06pm

Iggy Azalea Just Got Ethered On SportsCenter

ESPN's Hannah Storm: "What Exactly Does The NFL Stand For?"

Something Very Weird Happened During ESPN's Interview With Bill Polian

Former NFL executive Bill Polian was brought onto SportsCenter this morning to give some insight into the NFL's bungling of the Ray Rice situation.

Lil Wayne Freestyles Over The SportsCenter Theme, For Some Reason

Today was Lil Wayne Day on SportsCenter, or something, which means the rapper was on set all day to do zany things and promote his upcoming album. It also meant that he had to freestyle over the SportsCenter theme, which, given how that song goes, was a pretty raw deal for Lil Wayne. » 8/14/14 4:52pm 8/14/14 4:52pm

A Very Confused Stuart Scott Thought Bob Ley Was In Azerbaijan

ESPN2 aired tonight's USA-Azerbaijan friendly from Candlestick Park, but it seems SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott wasn't paying much attention—because the veteran newsman thought the match happened in Western Asia. » 5/28/14 12:24am 5/28/14 12:24am

Ken Griffey Jr. Did Not Enjoy This ESPN Interview

Ken Griffey Jr. did a spot on SportsCenter today to talk about a partnership with Upper Deck trading cards or something, and he acted like a guy who would rather have been anywhere else.

Ronda Rousey Curses On SportsCenter, Asked To Enter "Cuddle Tree"

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey went on SportsCenter today for a predictably ridiculous interview in which her Saturday bout against Miesha Tate was treated less like a title fight than as an opportunity to see two saucy broads who really don't like one another going at it. The best part came when a… » 12/26/13 2:50pm 12/26/13 2:50pm

ESPN Asks Its TV People To Stop Saying "Sucks" So Much

ESPN is a roll with these memos. Just yesterday the Worldwide Leader told its talent to be extra extra careful when talking about rape allegations ("Today's developments in the Jameis Winston investigation are likely to be emotionally charged.

ESPN Anchor Apologizes After "Lin Is Cooking With Peanut Oil" Joke

Remember when ESPN suspended Max Bretos for a month because he used a common colloquialism that, in the context of Jeremy Lin, seemed racist? Remember when media people saying racially obtuse things about Jeremy Lin was a thing? Lin's having a good game tonight against the Knicks, which means we're due for some good… » 11/14/13 10:28pm 11/14/13 10:28pm

The New SportsCenter Commercial You're Going To See Everywhere

It's been a rough stretch for ESPN and SportsCenter. Ratings for ESPN's flagship show have been sagging, bringing in about 828,000 viewers this year, down from about 1 million last year. Primetime ratings for ESPN and ESPN2 have seen declines too. ESPN's gotten really defensive about it, especially in the run-up to… » 9/23/13 10:15am 9/23/13 10:15am

We got a preview of this before, but here's a new video showing off SportsCenter's new set, narrated by Steve Levy. He says the set will be nearly 10,000 square feet.

"In New York, Keith Olbermann, ESPN."

Keith made his SportsCenter return after 16 years, about 104 miles southwest from Bristol. He looked orange. That Hershey's sign is soooo very distracting, as is all of Times Square. But Olbermann's Yankee fan/A-Rod essay was nice.
