Loyola-Chicago cruised past Kansas State as the Ramblers found their first “easy” win of this year’s NCAA tournament and earned their first Final Four bid since 1963, when the team won its only national championship, with an 78-62 win over the Wildcats.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. The daffodils are back, my friends.
Rocket League is a game with very little randomness. It’s mostly about the physics of rocket-powered cars slamming into giant balls. But during today’s Rocket League championship series matches, the one aspect of randomness in the game made a surprise appearance: respawning.

You can always use a new pair of socks, so why not grab eight pairs for just over a dollar each? Pick up an 8-pack of no-show or dress crew socks for just $10, which means you can afford to lose one in the dryer or under your bed.
By the time Nathan Chen skated to center ice to start his free skate at the 2018 world championships, he really only need to stay upright and hit one or two quad jumps in order to win his first ever world championship gold. Chen, who entered the men’s free skate in first place, skated last in the final group. Each of…
However you happen to feel about Colin Kaepernick, it is for sure interesting to observe that in the same month in which Johnny Manziel got a workout in front of a hearty handful of NFL scouts, Kaepernick was also out throwing the old pigskin, in front of roughly no one. This dynamic, and its associated discussion,…
Monica Puig came roaring back after a dispiriting first set to beat Caroline Wozniacki, 0-6 6-4 6-4, in a Friday Round of 64 match at the Miami Open. Highlights make it seem like the crowd was broadly pro-Puig, which makes sense—Puig is American, by way of Puerto Rico, and lives in Miami, whereas Wozniacki is from…
Delta’s In2itions are our readers’ favorite shower heads, and this 2-in-1 model is just $40 today, easily the best price we’ve ever seen.

Chris Sale left today’s spring training game against the Astros two outs into the first inning after a J.D. Davis line drive up the middle struck the Red Sox ace in the leg.
Update, 5 p.m.: Current estimates say that more than 800,000 people participated in the March for Our Lives in the nation’s capital, plus more than 200,000 in New York City, and hundreds of thousands in other cities across the country. A couple thousand of them were in West Palm Beach, FL, where President Donald Trump…
A fun thing to track, this time of year, is NBA games that produce outcomes that, purely from a standings perspective, are catastrophic for both teams. This season offers plenty of potential on this front: 18 of the NBA’s 30 teams are firmly in the playoff picture; all but the top two of each conference are engaged in…
The Formula One season starts Sunday! Just at ungodly hours for some of us in the Western Hemisphere. Whether you’re waking up early, staying up all night or casually turning on the TV at noon because you live in a better time zone, there are a few things you should know about F1 this year. We’ll make sure you do.
This is wonderful: a forum thread on a Rupp Rafters, a Rivals.com page dedicated to Kentucky basketball, has produced a conspiracy theory that positions the Wildcats as the victims of a plot to undermine their success by granting them too many free throws in their Sweet 16 loss to 9-seed Kansas State:
BOOP BOOP BOOP. Puppy alert. Incoming puppy. Prepare yourself according to protocol for the viewing of a puppy video! Here is the puppy:
In the third quarter of Friday night’s Hawks-Warriors tilt in Oakland, JaVale McGee challenged a Mike Muscala shot at the rim and crashed to the floor. McGee’s momentum carried him directly into the lower legs of Steph Curry, who’d helped down into the paint on the play.
It sure as hell wasn’t pretty but Duke did what it had to do by scoring more than 60 points, and the Blue Devils sent Syracuse packing as they secured their spot in the Elite Eight.
We’re going to talk about figure skating. No, it’s not a month ago. You haven’t woken up in February in the middle of the Winter Olympics when everything Adam Rippon said or did made international headlines. Figure skating goes on even after the Olympics are over. It is March, which means it’s time for the world…
