Time to take a look back at our most popular posts of 2015. We have our own thoughts about what our best posts were, but these are the ones that brought in the most readers.
Barefoot and frightened, Nicole Holder walked as fast as she could through the darkness, and the moment she saw the cops she ran. She headed west on Fifth Street toward North Church, away from the Charlotte., N.C., apartment of Greg Hardy, a star defensive end then with the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. Minutes earlier he had, she said, thrown her against a tile bathtub wall, tossed her on a futon covered in assault rifles, and choked her until she told him to “kill me so I don’t have to.”
The Wall Street Journal has put together a cool split screen video comparing American Pharoah’s Triple Crown winning Belmont race to Secretariat’s historic Belmont victory in 1973.
It sure appears ABC caught LeBron James making an adjustment just before tipoff of tonight’s Game 4:
So, the Florida Gators are playing East Carolina today in the Birmingham Bowl, and at half, Florida’s giving the Pirates the business. But that, comrades, is not why we are here.
Zack Morris! Kelly Kapowski! A.C. Slater! Jessie Spano! Mr. Belding! They’re all here (okay, no Screech, because he’s probably in jail). The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon spent eight whole minutes on a Saved By The Bell sketch featuring the original cast, almost 25 years after the NBC Saturday morning kid-com made its premiere. Everybody looks pretty good! Sadly, Jim Harbaugh couldn’t make it.
I should have known better. I should have known that the fight would suck. I have lived long enough to know that the whole point of spending $100 on a pay-per-view boxing match is so you can complain about spending $100 on a pay-per-view boxing match. There were people back in the day who used to bitch about Mike Tyson knocking out people too quickly, which seems like a groundless complaint now after watching Mayweather bore the world to death. Mike Tyson either knocked you out, or got knocked out trying. Floyd Mayweather is his diametric opposite.
Leicester City players James Pearson, Tom Hopper, and Adam Smith are under fire after video of a strange orgy during the team’s recent end-of-season trip to Thailand has made its way public.
Kentucky’s Andrew Harrison is not a particularly big fan of Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky, and expressed that fact on a more-sensitive-than-he-thought mic during the postgame press conference. The full thought sounds like “Fuck that nigga, oh my god” to me.
A video has popped up on LiveLeak of a woman who appears to be ESPN reporter Britt McHenry dressing down a towing company employee, making fun of the woman’s features, and using the “do you know who I am?” argument.
Floyd Mayweather’s serial battery of women is well-documented, but no single piece of evidence is as chilling as the one that came from the hand of his own son. In the early hours of Sept. 9, 2010, Mayweather brutally beat Josie Harris as their children watched.
