Hello darkness, my old friend
Watch those consonants.
Here’s an email from Elliott:
Yesterday, director and planet-eater James Cameron announced his intentions to make not one, not two, but FOUR sequels to 2009's Avatar, the second-highest-grossing film of all time. In the wake of that announcement, there was a fake quote passed around, with Cameron stating that one of the reasons for the sequelkakke…
He’s been in the NBA since the 90's, has made multiple All-Star games, had his best years in Los Angeles in the mid-2000's, and after tomorrow, he’s most likely hanging up his shoes for good.
WMBC’s evening news presented some highlights of last week’s Knicks-Bulls game, and anchor Mark Fontes of the New York City-area independent station struggled a bit with a certain unfamiliar Montenegrin pro basketballer’s name.
The MMA Tournament of Bad, an amazing tournament/excuse to review the dumbest and most ludicrous stories from the year in MMA, is ongoing. Go vote for Anthony Pettis’s multi-level marketing scheme. [MMATOB]
Today, at 3:43 EST, Deadspin received one of the better tips we’ve seen in a while. Reader Zain was checking to see if the City of San Francisco owed him any money from parking tickets that he overpaid. Unfortunately for him, they did not. But fortunately for us and Tim Lincecum, Zain discovered that the city owes the…
It’s late February and not much is going on in sports, so the press conference the UFC held today to promote Conor McGregor’s upcoming fight against Nate Diaz was the most entertaining happening of the day largely by default. Even so, it was really something, every bit as dumb as could be hoped.
At some point tomorrow, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will play against each other in the Super Bowl. However, a much more widely-contested game, between, oh, every publication, has already started.
So a couple hours ago, Cristiano Ronaldo—who is one of the greatest players in the history of the game of soccer because he is also one of the most physically dominant athletes of all time in any sport anywhere—posted a photo of himself dunking a soccer ball on a basketball hoop. My colleagues, a den of the most…
Of all of Cristiano Ronaldo’s various behavioral quirks, which have brought us so many laughs over the years, one of the funniest and most puzzling is his curious attachment to being the most expensive player alive. When he first came to Real Madrid, the club paid what was then a world record transfer fee for him; by…
We have previously put forward the theory that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is in fact a fancy dog. For those of you who scoffed at our perfectly sound reasoning, I present more irrefutable evidence that Tom Brady is indeed a dog, and a fancy one at that.
Aggrieved biking viking Ragnar, who was the Vikings mascot since 1993 until this year, turned his back on Minnesota today for good. In a short video, he committed the cardinal sin of backing the Green Bay Packers and drew the ire of fellow former Viking Randy Moss.
Over the course of the last week or so, you may have noticed some version of this puzzle popping up in one of your social media feeds:
Sam Farmer wrote a column which started with the recent spate of injuries to playoff-bound NFL quarterbacks for Tuesday’s edition of the Los Angeles Times. The copy’s fine, but the headline has puzzled me and others on the Deadspin staff for a couple of days now.
Shayne Graham, the newly signed Falcons kicker, is in the midst of the best fantasy football performance of all time, as his 16 field goals are good for 48 points in Yahoo leagues. This first came to our attention as our alleged former colleague Kyle Wagner talked some shit online.
Brook and Robin Lopez are notoriously tight. They hosted an NBA blooper reel show for Disney this summer, once skipped out on Stanford practice together to head to Disneyland, and they are apparently writing partners who are working on a pilot or two. So you’d think that they would want to live together once Robin…
