In the 13 years since Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, he has become a symbol of the supposedly tight bonds between American football and American militarism and American patriotism. There’s no clearer evidence of Tillman’s symbolic potency than Donald Trump retweeting the…

In his new pseudo-health book, Tom Brady warns readers not to drink tap water. “Even when you use tap water for steaming vegetables,” he writes, “it’s better to filter it first.” Sunday, the Patriots ran out of Brady’s precious bottled water at the Gillette Stadium concession stands, and then had the gall to charge…
There are surely more powerful drill/drivers out there, but this 20V model from Black & Decker includes 100 accessories, and a battery that lasts for 18 months all for an all-time low $47. For basic tasks around the house, it’s more than enough.

Billy Hamilton, who leads MLB in stolen bases, was a little too eager to get another one Sunday against the Red Sox, as the Reds’ center fielder found himself in a pickle after he jumped on a pickoff throw.
