Congratulations to Conan O’Brien, who managed to take the hot-take superfund site that was Cam Newton’s press conference and make it a set-up for a very enjoyable bit. I promise, this won’t annoy you at all!
The only good thing to come out of the week leading up to the Super Bowl so far is the latest installment of NFL players being subjected to very bad lip-reading voiceovers.
The Los Angeles Lakers announced that they will be building a statue to honor Shaquille O’Neal, and it will be unveiled outside of their home arena some time during the 2016-2017 season. All we have to go on now is an artist’s rendering, but it’s a bad-ass looking concept:
Vince Staples is a very talented and funny rapper who also happens to be a big NBA fan. So, obviously, putting him on camera and asking him to make fun of the way NBA players dress was a great decision.
Much like that Gainesville cop who dunked on those kids earlier this week, these Washington D.C. cops took a little time off from policing last night as the blizzard was roaring into D.C. to play some sports. This may or may not be an attempt to ride the wave of goodwill that the Gainesville cop set off, but that…
Some no-fun-haver called in a noise complaint against these kids in Gainesville, Fl. for having the audacity—the nerve—to play basketball loudly in what appears to be the damn woods, or somewhere close to the woods anyway.
People put a lot of weird shit on the internet. Most of it is bad, but some of it is very, very good. @WWESubway falls into that second category.
After a first-grade class at an elementary school wrote encouraging letters to Blair Walsh, who duffed a kick that would have allowed the Vikings to beat the Seahawks, he visited the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minn. The meet-and-greet featured autographs, conversations, and a question about…
Los Angeles Rams (that’s going to take getting used to) defensive lineman Chris Long appears on television in millions of home each week, but that still didn’t prevent him from getting excited about making the local news in Charlottesville, Va. NFL stars, they’re just like us!
The guy who does the voiceover work for NBA.com’s daily highlight packages is a true gem. This morning, he filled his daily highlight package with references to the late, great David Bowie.
Out of all the jamokes currently attending the Guns ’N Camo sleepaway camp in a remote and unspectacular administrative building in Oregon, the guy in the video above might be the jamokiest. Click play, and you’ll see Jon Ritzheimer tearfully inform his children that he won’t be home for awhile because, “Your daddy…
Today is a day to celebrate, among other things, the birthday of Rickey Henderson, a man who embodies baseball at its best so completely that it’s hard to do him any justice. Here’s to you, Rickey.
Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves visited the Boston Celtics last night, and the home team gave its former star a warm welcome. They reunited him with Gino!
During last night’s Cavaliers-Celtics game, Special Olympian Aaron Miller was honored during a timeout. LeBron James was in a team huddle while Miller was cheered at midcourt, but later went out of his way to run over to the kid and show him some love.
Gregg Popovich is notorious for hating just about all interviews, but especially the league-mandated ones that take place during nationally televised games. But somewhere under that gruff exterior is a very kind man who has built a relationship with longtime TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager, and was incredibly…
The late-night standoff/sleepover that wooed DeAndre Jordan away from the Mavericks and back onto the Clippers will forever be one of the funniest moments in sports. So I’m cool with this silly ESPN promo for tomorrow night’s game between the Mavericks and Clippers, because nobody should ever stop making jokes about…
Giants tight end Daniel Fells was released from the hospital yesterday, 18 days and seven surgeries after being admitted with a MRSA infection that threatened the amputation of his foot. The infection is under control—Fells will get to keep his foot—but the best part might have been when his kids got to see him for…
I don’t know what’s more endearing: the way Didier Drogba coaxes these Montreal Impact academy kids into an impromptu dance circle, or the way the kids take to it with such gusto. Drogba may well have found his second calling.
A fan at Kauffman Stadium posted photos on Facebook which show Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte giving away baseballs and his gear to fans after Wednesday night’s loss to the Royals.
