Jordan Matthews signed with the Eagles today. The receiver, who was with Philadelphia for the first three seasons of his NFL career, was signed to boost the team’s depleted receiving corps. Matthews spent last season with the Bills—the Eagles had traded him and a draft pick for cornerback Ronald Darby—and today told…
Look, man, you’re not going to draw a walk here. You only get one crack at the baby sex reveal pitch, and while the father in question here does at least make a wise adjustment of trying to catch the wayward pitch instead of just letting it pass like this dude did, you have to swing. No hesitation.
A thing I’d like to impress upon you is how difficult it can be to get the Patriots to comment on a story. Let alone on a story that could be characterized as gossip. Let alone on the record. Trust me, I know. That said, here’s a statement from the Patriots, via the Boston Globe:
USWNT stalwart Sydney Leroux Dwyer and her husband, Orlando City striker Dom Dwyer, have produced one of the premier sports babies with their son Cassius. Sydney bolstered her 17-month-old’s growing reputation for reliable adorability yesterday with an Instagram video of a little trick she taught him that doubles as a…
Philadelphia is already out of control with Super Bowl fever, and this baby is no exception. This kid has likely heard the word “Eagles” 10 million times over the last few weeks, so why wouldn’t his first word be “Eagles”? The only thing that’s surprising is that he didn’t say “Go Birds.”
Calvin, no, that’s a basketball, you don’t hit a basketball with a baseball bat...oh.
Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated published a Q&A with Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins today. He discusses his new workspace at the stadium, his experience golfing with Donald Trump and his perspective on the protests during the national anthem. He also discusses this, regarding the birth of his son last month:
A little less than two weeks after Serena Williams gave birth to a baby girl with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, she posted a photo of her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., to Instagram.
Free-agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie’s wife, Terricka, recently gave birth to the couple’s sixth child. This is the 14th child that Cromartie has fathered, and the third that has been born after he had a vasectomy.
In the eighth inning of last night’s 6-3 Dodgers win, one Mets fan decided he could make a one-handed play on a foul ball with a baby already in the other arm. He did, I suppose, though I’m not sure the baby’s mother would agree with his decision-making.
Yesterday, our own Lindsey Adler sent me this BuzzFeed story about a married woman in her early 30s who cares for a robot baby for a week because she feels ambivalent about children. “Just like high school!” I said. “Ha,” Lindsey replied, but I could tell she meant, “What the fuck are you talking about?”
The Phoenix Suns lost a tank battle to the Nets tonight out in Brooklyn and set an NBA record in the process. They started rookies Tyler Ulis, Marquese Chriss, and Derrick Jones Jr., as well as fourth-year player Alex Len and sophomore Devin Booker. Len is the elder statesman of the bunch at 23, while Chriss and Jones…

Heads up, we’ve got two new sports babies on the scene, and they don’t believe in the offseason.
An errant basketball took a desperate break in the name of freedom this evening and tried to escape a game between Boise State and Fresno State. Referees tried to dislodge it; didn’t work. Players tried to retrieve it; no dice.
Last week, Deadspin released its favorite sports moments of the year. The collection is beautifully written and well-curated on the whole, but it has one glaring flaw—there are no baby races.
Donald Trump doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to babies. Which is weird for a man with such a close, natural bond to his own children.
There are 4.3 babies born in the world every second. Maybe there’s 1.0 new baby in your world and you need to appease it with a gift. How?
One of the best things about basketball is that it is not baseball. I enjoy both sports equally, but basketball has always had an edge in the not-employing-humorless-dickwads department, which means you rarely ever see NBA players or coaches talking about “class” or “playing the right way.” The Atlanta Hawks are…
