Sam Raimi wanted to make a superhero movie. After gifting the world with his absurdist 1987 horror-comedy masterpiece Evil Dead II, Raimi chased the rights to make movies out of both Batman and The Shadow. Both times, he failed. So he invented his own superhero—one who was really more of a deranged and revenge-crazed…
Here is a shot that Steph Curry made last night. These are the things about it that made me laugh:
Head over to Medium to read this lovely and unbearably sad piece from ESPN’s Ivan Maisel on the third anniversary of the death of his son, Max.
Nadezhda Sergeeva, the pilot for the Russian women’s bobsled team, has tested positive for a banned heart medication. The kicker to this story: Earlier this month, she showed off her “I Don’t Do Doping” sweatshirt.
The Ottawa Senators were a lost cause long before last night, but I think this play from Thursday was the official end, in which Victor Hedman faces only the mildest of resistance as he skates to the net for a goal that would give his Lightning a lead they’d never relinquish.

Russian 15-year-old Alina Zagitova gave a stunning performance in her free skate to win gold in women’s figure skating, retaining the tiny edge that she earned over fellow Russian and two-time world champion Evgenia Medvedeva in the short program.
Drexel fell behind 5-0 at the start of tonight’s game against Delaware, and for quite a while, it didn’t look like they’d be able to crawl out of that hole. With a few minutes remaining in the first half, they were down by 34, and by the break, they’d only managed to cut that to 27 points. But in the second half, they…
The Florida Panthers are playing their first home game since the mass shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
