Yes the whole “pivot to video” thing was based on maliciously faked data, but it also brought us Dom wielding that stupid fucking chopstick so I say it was worth it.

What is the exact point when malicious actors become apathetic as to just how transparently and grotesquely malicious their actions are? Is it after earning a specific dollar figure, or does it just become a matter of practice over time? Read more

And on top of all this, Gordon had microfracture surgery early in his career, likely affecting his post-age-28 career even more so than the average running back.

Please be patient in waiting for your file. The script is as efficient as it can be, but this is still a CPU-intensive task!

Dom thank you for putting this out here. So great to get first hand account of a former player who not only was in a similar situation as a teammate but also a friend of a star player who could give the proper perspective. If only major outlets like ESPN could offer this counter viewpoint to give people an actual Read more

Mayock has played this poorly. You wanted this super-diva, and you got him. Now that he’s acting like a super-diva, you leak to your guy Mike Silver that he had (shocker!) a “different set of rules” and “imagine if another employee...” stuff — nope. He’s not just another employee; he gets another set of rules — Read more

We all chewed and dipped tobacco on my high school baseball team. It was the 80s, a more gentle, innocent time when chewing was viewed as the healthy alternative to smoking with those Walt Garrison “just a pinch ‘tween yer cheek an’ gum” Skoal commercials. That was before the mouth and gum cancer research started to Read more

HS football game late in 4th quarter. We had a late lead and need to bleed the clock so coach tells us to take time getting up after each play. 1st play after being told this, I pop right up, see everyone else getting up like it’s the end of Thanksgiving dinner, so I...fall back down. Fast forward a few weeks and we Read more

Freshman year of high school, varsity baseball (we only had 1 team tho), and I was the worst player. Straight up dogshit, couldn’t hit, couldn’t catch, couldn’t pitch. In the middle of a blowout game during the preseason, I get subbed in for the top of the 6th in right field. I grew up in the SF Bay Area, and the Read more

Playing in the Big XII Championship I hit a shitty punt and dude is returning it and is getting forced to the sideline and I am there and he is acting like he is about to just run out and then the last second lowers his shoulder and just plows me where I go flying heels over head like a little bitchass rag doll on Read more

High School Swim Team. My gal K and I are swimming in the same race. We’re in lanes next to each other, so we can keep an eye on each other as we’re swimming. I hit the water and I am FEELING IT. I’m freaking cruising. Even better, I can see K is keeping time with me. We are both killing it, and both feeling that Read more

High school football. We were doing a version of the Oklahoma drill, where both players lie down, and when the coach says “GO!” or whatever, you have to scramble up as fast as you can and hit the other player. Read more

Mine’s from youth league tackle football. I was probably 12 or 13 and on a team with my twin brother, who was much better than me at football (and basketball, and baseball). Read more

7th grade football. First game of the season. I felt a rumble in my lower abdomen during warmups. Right before kickoff I had to sprint to the bathroom. The stalls didn’t have doors on them, but I had barely made it to the toilet in time so I didn’t have a choice. Read more
