Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio seems to be a man willing to a hear out a broad variety of opinions on a topic. Maybe that’s a common attribute for football coaches, an occupation that demands approaching a problem with multiple possible solutions and can reward unconventional thinking. That also might be why…
Grayson Murray, one of golf’s up-and-coming talents, has spent the past month pushing golfers to take a more active role in showing off their personalities online. On Wednesday, Murray shared a little too much of his.
Okay so the Nashville Predators upset the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round of the NHL playoffs, and Gnash, the Preds’ mascot that has an official Twitter account for some reason, is angry that nobody at ESPN predicted the upset:
On Wednesday the New York Times sports desk tweeted out two group photos of the New England Patriots at the White House, one from their post-championship visit with then-President Barack Obama in 2015, the other from yesterday’s visit with President Donald Trump. Lots of people, including us, jumped on the apparent…
Sound the Twitter drama foghorn, because you’re about to read about something incredibly stupid and meaningless.
Wizards center Marcin Gortat is a little more outspoken online than the average athlete. For instance, there’s the time he discussed the benefits of a porn subscription. So when someone told Gortat he was acting like a dick at a bar last night, the NBA player responded.
Who’s ready for #TealTuesday in Arizona??? These guys!!!
Thursday Night Football, which features tired NFL teams playing in ugly jerseys, tried out an experiment last season and streamed 10 of its games on Twitter. I tried watching once and promptly saw Twitter’s wonderful “social” integration alert me that someone had scored a touchdown before I saw anything had happened…
The fastest-growing career in America is not, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics would have you believe, in installing and repairing wind turbines. The fastest-growing career is doing 63 tweets in a row about why Donald Trump is a Manchurian president.
Digital security and its discontents—from Hillary Clinton’s emails to ransomware to Tor hacks—is in many ways one of the chief concerns of the contemporary FBI. So it makes sense that the bureau’s director, James Comey, would dip his toe into the digital torrent with a Twitter account. It also makes sense, given…
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh sat down with GQ to talk about peanut butter, treating his eight-year-old kids like his football players, and some other stuff—you can read the full interview here. What really jumped out from the piece, though, was the fact that the Wolverines head coach really, really loves scrolling…
If Curt Schilling’s going to eventually run for office, he’s doing a bang-up job of following in his political idol Donald Trump’s footsteps. Last night, the former baseball pitcher got into an argument with Rosie O’Donnell.
When Jerry Rice isn’t busy in front of the camera or sipping mimosas and snapping photos with an increasingly bothered bartender, he spends his time distributing his thoughts to his fans via Twitter. While all current and former athletes should generally avoid tweeting Rice proved (once again) that there are…
Last night, Bleacher Report tweeted out a video of Dirk Nowitzki shooting an air ball, captioned “DIRK FOREVER”:
Here is a ... well, here is something:
NBA fans have voted on All-Star starters for decades, and have voted for them online since 2001. This year fans were able to vote on the NBA’s website, app, and a variety of social media platforms. But as Zaza Pachulia’s near-All-Star appearance showed, it’s a pretty easy system to game, right?
Here is a great petty tweet from the Portland Trail Blazers during last night’s game against the Grizzlies:
In an attempt to show his pride for The Ringer’s productivity today, Bill Simmons tried to build a metaphor for content and was swept out to sea by a tidal wave of meat.
