Connor Cook, long projected to be picked in the early rounds of the NFL Draft, ended up slipping to the Raiders in the fourth round. A report about why he fell despite his obvious talent pointed to attitude problems and a bad rap from his teammates. According to the Detroit News, there wasn’t one incident that turned…
One of the grossest things in all of sports is big-time college football recruiting: educational institutions groveling and begging high schoolers to attend, adults directing slush funds towards 17-year-olds, college graduates harassing kids on social media to consider their alma mater. And last night saw just the…
Nascent Blues fan Anthony Holmes, who learned about hockey when he watched Game 7 of Blackhawks-Blues last week, was St. Louis’s guest for Tuesday’s Game 3 against the Dallas Stars. He had better seats than you’ll ever have.
The Lakers are very, very bad. But Lakers legend Magic Johnson has thought it through, and if the front office is willing to listen, Magic has a way to turn the team’s fortunes around.
Unemployed athlete and alleged domestic abuser Johnny Manziel took offense to a photo posted last night of the former Browns quarterback watching the NFL draft from a Columbus bar, and used Twitter tonight to voice his displeasure at the nature of Johnny Football-related discourse these days:
Laremy Tunsil is expected to be one of the first players selected in tonight’s NFL Draft. Minutes before the draft began in Chicago, his Twitter account posted a video of someone who appears to be Tunsil smoking an unknown substance out of a gas mask.
Ohio State’s Eli Apple is one of the top cornerbacks available in this week’s NFL draft. But he’s not, in fact, the most impressive talent to emerge from his own family. That honor is reserved for his mom, Annie Apple, who is a LeBron James-, Andrew Luck-type superstar-in-the-making at the all-important position of…
Here is a story of love, hacking, misspellings, “Becky”, and tattoos, in seven tweets:
The NHL convinced one more person to please like its sport last night. A man on Twitter tuned into Game 7 of Blackhawks-Blues, the first hockey game he had ever seen. He tweeted as he watched, and his enthusiasm was delightful.
If you have a weak constitution or are unsettled by the sight of gore, you may not want to look at this brutal and graphic Twitter owning.
When you run the Cincinnati Reds’ Twitter, and the team loses in a 16-0 no-hitter, it’s tough to find a silver lining. But, you have a job to do. Those sad fans need their recap. Thursday’s final result:
The Christmas season is all about peace on Earth, goodwill towards your neighbors, and defending the honor of your favorite basketball player by driving 35 minutes to go fight some chump who talked shit online. Two Christmases ago, Twitter user @MyTweetsRealAF made the drive down to Temecula, Ca. after @SnottieDrippen…
Here’s the New York Giants’ schedule for the 2015-16 season. Notice which two games are not like the others?
Plenty of athletes found a way to congratulate Kobe Bryant after his 60-point performance Wednesday. Bills running back LeSean McCoy praised Bryant, cracked jokes at Bryant’s former teammates hugging him after the game, and called currently active Laker Lou Williams “soft.” Williams didn’t like that.
Incredible run, Cincinnati!
Giving you one fewer reason to stop staring at the internet, the NFL announced this morning that Twitter had won the rights to stream 10 Thursday Night Football games next season. Those 10 games will still be broadcast on CBS or NBC as normal, for those that somehow prefer football on a big screen.
Deep in the lowest levels of the English soccer pyramid, the modern club needs its players to fill multiple roles in order to survive. Your backup striker might need to double as the electrician when the lights in the locker room go out. Your utility defender might be called upon to check the team bus’s engine when…
The internet is, generally speaking, a garbage dump suffused with vitriol and poison. “But surely,” some might ask, “the one, tiny corner of Twitter devoted to Cool Pope Francis would be a respite for our bitter, blackened hearts?” To which the answer is: of course not, no.
