The Pittsburgh Steelers have been the NFL’s most reliable source of post-touchdown fun since the league relaxed its celebration rules, and after a JuJu Smith-Schuster score today, they showed off another move in their arsenal. For the enjoyment of all, Smith-Schuster and Le’Veon Bell put on a choreographed game of…
The Phoenix Suns are truly awful. They’ve played three games this season, and lost them by a combined 92 points; their best young players are hilariously incapable of playing winning basketball; and their best veteran player, Eric Bledsoe, seems to have seen enough of this shit:
During yesterday’s Hearthstone matches at DreamHack Denver, the commentators mentioned a player called “MTGKid” between matches. A young kid, MTGKid is actually Quinn Kiefer—a 12-year-old Magic: The Gathering player.
A vintage defensive performance from the Chicago Bears and a complete lack of trust in their rookie quarterback were enough to soundly beat the Carolina Panthers today, 17-3. Chicago achieved a win with a pair of Eddie Jackson defensive touchdowns, while QB Mitchell Trubisky threw only seven passes, completing four.
With Chicago up on Carolina 17-3 late in the fourth quarter today, an impending Bears win faced a slight delay when, just before a Panthers punt, an idiot ran out onto the field.

Overshadowed, somewhat, by the ejections of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, and the general improbability of the Warriors ever losing—let alone losing to a team starting both Andrew Harrison and Jarell Martin—was another instant classic performance by Marc Gasol, who is wonderful.
The Vikings’ Andrew Sendejo drew an early unnecessary roughness penalty today against the Ravens when he went in head first against Baltimore receiver Mike Wallace, who was already in the process of being tackled. Wallace’s helmet flew far away from him after the hit, and he stayed down while being attended to by team…
A U.S. District Court Judge in California has allowed a class-action lawsuit against Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. to proceed after agreeing that the league increased the danger to youth football participants by failing to institute league-wide safety protocols and guidelines, according to Law360.com.
Coming to you from Decatur High School in Texas is what has to be one of the best amateur sports highlights of the year, courtesy of senior Autumn Finney.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Roger Goodell’s contract extension—which has been in the works for months, now—has been held up by the attention drawn by ongoing player protests during pregame national anthem ceremonies.
