Watch those consonants.
I was a little bit worried about those Giants fans who had to leave Monday’s game in shame after one of them accidentally grabbed a fair ball. Fortunately, I was able to talk to Travis, the dude who made the mistake, and he assures me that they are doing just fine.
Going to an empty football stadium to lay on the grass and watch a movie on the jumbotron sounds like a perfectly pleasant way to spend a spring evening. It becomes remarkably less pleasant when the stadium forgets to shut off the automatic sprinklers:
Dwight Howard ended his presser after Houston’s 104-78 thrashing at the hands of the Warriors by dropping the mic. He didn’t pick it back up.
I’m not one of those snot-nosed shits who will say stuff like, “Golf? Bleehhhhhh. Golf is so boooooring!” while doing a sick ollie. I like watching golf! It’s a perfectly pleasant way to pass a Sunday. Having said that, I was riveted by the video above, and now wish golf was always played like this.
The Tampa Bay Rays still have dumb catwalks at the top of their dumb stadium, and they still occasionally wreak havoc on high fly balls. During last night’s game against the Indians, one catwalk prevented shortstop Francisco Lindor from catching a foul ball with two outs in the ninth inning.
Jordan Spieth’s quadruple-bogey at Augusta National’s par-3 12 shocked viewers around the world and cost him the Masters. How could such an incredibly talented golfer melt down like that? We went back into the video to see exactly what happened—and found something bizarre.
There are no Canadian hockey teams in this year’s NHL playoffs, and I’m sure a lot of Canadian hockey fans are very sad about that. The good news is that I have a special message for my bummed-out friends in the north:
Every now and then, you see some shit so crazy that you momentarily forget where you are and what you’re supposed to be doing. We’ve all been this security guard before:
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.
There was a very hard-to-believe bit of gossip buried in a NOLA.com article this morning. Columnist Roy Higgins cited a source who told him that the University of South Carolina Gamecocks were initially invited to the NCAA tournament by the selection committee, only to have that invitation rescinded a short time…
I’ve gotten a good deal of enjoyment out of this video, created by the News & Observer, in which UNC head coach Roy Williams spends 68 seconds saying old-timey grandpa curses:
Happy Easter everyone!
Attention: Steve Francis, former star point guard for the University of Maryland and the Houston Rockets and not-star point guard for the New York Knicks, needs one of his boats moved from Sarasota, Fla. to “the Harbor.” (Presumably, if you’re the sort of person who can get a boat moved out of Sarasota, you know which…
If you think today’s big-leaguers are a bunch of disrespectful rapscallions, wait until you get a load of Bryce Harper Jr. over here:
Please look at the photograph above.
It took some effort, but the Duke Blue Devils dispatched UNC-Wilmington in the first of today’s 16 NCAA tournament games. Grayson Allen, Ted Cruz, and Colin Mochrie await their next-round opponent.
