Here's Will Ferrell's At-Bat In Ferrell Takes The Field, Which Was A Drag Otherwise

Spoiler Alert: They don’t really let Will Ferrell pitch in Ferrell Takes the Field, his stunt HBO doc where he plays every position (plus designated hitter) for 10 different MLB teams during one day of 2015 spring training action in Arizona. No, in his 90-second stint with the Dodgers, he throws one quote-unquote… »9/14/15 10:30am9/14/15 10:30am

Vote In The Only College Football Poll That Matters—The Deadspin 25

Preseason polls are inherently stupid. But instead of wasting our time arguing with the power-mad beat writers of America, Deadspin proposes that it’s time for the right to determine college football’s best teams—or perhaps just its most interesting—to be taken away from the idiot writers and given to you, the idiot… »8/04/15 10:32am8/04/15 10:32am

Trevor Bauer Imitates Three Teammates' Batting Stances In One At-Bat

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had some fun last night with his rare opportunity to make some plate appearances, and made the most of his third trip to the plate in Pittsburgh by mimicking three of his teammates’ batting stances: Mike Aviles, Jason Kipnis, and Ryan Raburn.

Monster Truck Pulls Off Double Backflip

Monster truck driver Tom Meents pulled off a double backflip tonight at Gillette Stadium, something which is apparently a pretty big deal (Meents failed on his previous three attempts) and looks pretty cool, regardless. Like most Monster Jam events, it’s another example of destroying an automobile in the most… »6/20/15 8:08pm6/20/15 8:08pm

Let's Try Joy Of Cooking's Worst Recipes. First Up: Quick Fish Loaf

I like to eat. Most of you do, too, I’m fairly sure, because I’ve seen you all doing it out at restaurants and in front of, behind, or under food trucks, and I daresay you looked quite pleased with yourselves. But due to the finite geometry of intestines and other guts, as well as the unwelcome but omnipresent… »5/11/15 11:26am5/11/15 11:26am

What Happens When A 38-Year-Old Man Takes An AP History Test?

I never took an AP course in high school. I'm pretty sure it was because I never qualified for it (I went straight B-minuses throughout my high school career), but it was also because I went to school back when taking AP courses wasn't the dire necessity that it is for today's students. According to this article,… »3/18/15 11:42am3/18/15 11:42am

Get Bent: I Watched The Simpsons Marathon For 24 Hours Straight

I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons growing up. It wasn't until I was 10 or so that my parents let my sister and I watch a single episode, and then only because they'd heard it had some kind of moral: "Bart learns a lesson," something along those lines.
