The New York Giants became the San Francisco Giants in 1957, and all that remains of the stadium they used to play in, the Polo Grounds, is an old staircase that once led to the stadium’s entrance. Tucked within a nearby housing development are two plaques, one denoting where home plate used to be, and another marking…
When Rick Ankiel’s long, strange career ended in 2013, he was left with a .240 batting average in almost 2,000 at-bats, a 3.90 ERA over 242 innings, and a place in the record books next to Babe Ruth as the only other player to start a playoff game as the pitcher and hit a home run in the postseason as a position…
Marshall Faulk picked in an inopportune time to dredge up his 2002 Super Bowl beef with New England. The Hall of Fame running back and NFL Network Analyst insisted that Tom Brady’s claim as the greatest quarterback ever should come with an asterisk on the same day that Brady and the Pats pulled off the craziest…
Spoiler alert: the chair and person are not thrown through any sort of furniture.
All the Los Angeles Rams’ special teams unit had to do was catch a punt. That’s it. Just wave for the fair catch so Jeff Fisher’s offense can figure out a new way to go three-and-out. Instead, Pharoh Cooper had to deal with his own teammate laying a hit on him.
What prompted this fight in the stands at Sunday’s 49ers-Dolphins game is unclear—the uploader’s description shares his account of the events—but there’s a lot going on.
We’re taught to give it our all in tasks, regardless of the outcome, because even if the effort doesn’t produce the desired result, at least you tried your best. This line of thinking does not apply to Green Bay Packers linebacker Kyler Fackrell.
Thirty-four-year-old Liam McGeary is undefeated over the course of his MMA career.

This week’s episode of Foodspin takes us to the fabled (and somewhat controversial) Ben’s Chili Bowl, which has been an institution here in Washington, D.C. for nearly 60 years. There, Burneko and I discover the wonders of the Ben’s half-smoke, which is a big fucking sausage smothered in chili and onions. No wonder my…
According to the man himself, Mo Vaughn is not much of a slugger any more. On a recent trip to the batting cages with his son, the former AL MVP says, he made contact with just three of 14 pitches—at 50 mph. Luckily, he was prepared for life after baseball when his All-Star career ended in 2003.
Odell Beckham Jr. has had an underwhelming start to the season and has been in a funk because of it, but the Giants receiver looked like his happy old self today after burning the Ravens for a 75-yard touchdown. He made the most out of his celebration.
The image above might be a tenuous representation of hockey, but that’s because it’s Vancouver Canucks hockey, baby.
The Chargers squandered an eight-point advantage in the second half and allowed the Raiders to claw back and take a 34-31 lead late in the fourth. No worries, however; San Diego had an opportunity to tie the game with a field goal. Surely nothing disastrous could happen on an attainable, 36-yard attempt.
Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee would have had the Chicago Bears pinned inside the five-yard line with his kick in the third quarter, but running back Jordan Todman, who plays on the punting unit, screwed it all up.

Novak Djokovic livestreamed a visit Monday to some childhood tennis courts that were struck by the 1999 NATO bombing campaign in what was then Yugoslavia.
