According to a report from the Portland Press-Herald, the football coach at Gray-New Gloucester High School resigned after instructing his players to taunt a Yarmouth player with gay parents during a game last Friday, telling them to ask the player “Who’s your daddy?” every time he was tackled.
Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher is 6-foot-7 and weighs 315 pounds. Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack is also quite large, coming in at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, but not so large, one might think, as to be able to turn a man of Fisher’s size into a Jenga tower in pads. And yet, we can all see the GIF at the top of this post.
WASHINGTON—Realizing with a shudder that he was being watched, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt reportedly picked up his pace while walking home Tuesday as hundreds of whooping cranes began silently perching around him. “Stay calm, Scott, they’re just birds,” said Pruitt, fumbling for his…
The Dodgers are going to the World Series for the first time in nearly 30 years and we already know who will be on the mound on for Game 1 in Los Angeles. It will be the face of the franchise, Clayton Kershaw. It couldn’t be anyone else.
We see a lot of deals on home theater bias lights, but even by our standards, $9 is insanely cheap for an RGB model. Just stick it to the back of your TV, plug it into a USB port, and control it with the included remote.
After Marshawn Lynch was ejected from last night’s game against the Chiefs for making contact with an official, there were reports that he had immediately changed into street clothes in the locker room and left the stadium. That turned out to not be quite true; Lynch did indeed leave the locker room and never returned…
In perhaps the most predictable turn of events of the NBA’s early season, Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley held Lakers rookie sensation Lonzo Ball to three points on 1-of-6 shooting. Also predictably, Beverley was pleased with his handiwork after the game, according to ESPN’s Marc Spears:
The Remington MB4900 has everything you need to to groom your beard or maintain your sexy stubble, and you can take advantage of two nice discounts right now. First and foremost, its $50 list price is the best Amazon’s ever listed. Then, a $10 clippable coupon sweetens the deal even further.
The list of players with three home runs in a postseason game is fairly short. There’s Babe Ruth, twice. There’s Mr. October, Albert Pujols, George Brett. José Altuve, who did it two weeks ago, and Pablo Sandoval, who did it five years ago, and Adrián Beltré and Bob Robertson. Weirdly, there is Adam Kennedy, in a year…
Oakland topped Kansas City tonight in yet another improbably entertaining Thursday night game, though one that had a finish marred (to some) or spiced up (to others) by errors committed by, in order, the officials, the Raiders, the Chiefs, and the Chiefs again:
For the first time in this series, the Cubs failed to score first. The Dodgers took full advantage, with an 11-1 victory to win their first pennant in nearly 30 years.
Albert Wilson hauled in a tipped pass to go 63 yards and give Kansas City a 27-21 lead over the Raiders in what’s been a very interesting Thursday night game; subsequently, some very un-FCC-friendly language made its way onto the broadcast, which is what we’re all here for, right?
It has become impossible to ignore the American flag at sporting events. This is, in part, because of the increasingly elaborate performance that is the pregame ceremony for the national anthem, in which the flag works as symbolic shorthand to represent whatever you want it to about the country, the troops, and only…
Some dogs are very good dogs, and those very good dogs might want to dash off the hiking trail or you know, chase squirrels in a city park not during off-leash hours. Rad Dog’s Release N Run Leash is a great treat for those good dogs and their owners.
NFL rules stipulate that star players must hold court with the press each week before games. Cam Newton skipped out on his press duties this afternoon, and the NFL has apparently decided to investigate, according to a spokesman for the league. Neither the Panthers nor coach Ron Rivera said why Newton didn’t speak to…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. I’m not trying to give my life meaning by demeaning you.
On Valentine’s Day in 1988, Leandra Reilly Lardner became the first woman to serve as a play-by-play commentator on an NBA game. It was a live telecast between the New Jersey Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers on SportsChannel, she recalled recently for the Chicago Tribune. It was a key moment—followed by decades more of…
