Yesterday’s Champions League match between Bayern Munich and Besiktas experienced a brief interruption in the second half, courtesy of a friendly little kitty-cat scampering onto the pitch:
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of Skeeter Duffy, baseball’s most notable fat cat and one of its best. Matt Duffy—presently in the Rays’ organization and previously the Giants’ third baseman—announced the passing of his beloved fatso due to illness this weekend at the age of 15.
The era of shitty Thursday night games has returned to our world. Except for this part. This was good.
I love that you love your cats, but your cats hate you.
It was all fun and games when a cat ran onto the field during a St. Louis Cardinals game earlier this month. An employee wrangled him, the cat bit him, and Yadier Molina hit a grand slam on the next pitch. Rally cat!
Yesterday, we brought you an update on the Cardinals’ arrogant claim to the cat that ran across their stadium field last week. A local nonprofit, St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach, is caring for the feline until the organization finds it a suitable new home—with the Cardinals as just one of “thousands” of groups and…
The Cardinals are planning a “Welcome Home” ceremony for a cat the team is publicly calling “ours,” even though they have not yet been granted custody by St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach, the local organization currently responsible for the feline and the process of finding it a new home.
Cardinals Cat, the kitten that invaded a Royals-Cardinals game at Busch Stadium Wednesday night and inspired the Cardinals to victory, has been found. And you know what? They threw the little asshole in jail, where he belongs:
Despite the efforts of two different people, the kitten that invaded Wednesday’s Cardinals game and battled a hapless team employee apparently could not be tamed. It’s on the loose.
A cat ran onto the field in the bottom of the sixth inning in St. Louis tonight. It was adorable, and kind of sad. Poor kitty! Then it bit a Cardinals employee trying to take it off the field, and it was pretty funny. The announcers made fun of him. Poor guy! After the employee finally wrangled the cat into the…
When the Sixers announced in 2014 that they’d be building a new practice facility in Camden, N.J.—just across the Delaware from Philadelphia—team president Scott O’Neill was asked if the team was committed to hiring Camden residents for jobs at the building. After all, Camden County NAACP president Kelly Francis…
JaVale McGee has had a resurgent season with the Golden State Warriors, playing in more games than he has since 2012-13 and averaging seven points per game in the playoffs. He’s emerged as a reliable alley-oop muse within the Warriors hyperkinetic offense, and he has rescued a once-moribund career. Last season, he…
A small gray cat somehow managed to invade the Marlins’ outfield tonight in the top of the sixth inning. The game against the Atlanta Braves was briefly delayed as the kitty slunk around the base of the wall, scaled it like a ninja, and posted up on the eyesore that is the Marlins’ home-run statue.
Hello. The internet says that today is National Pet Day, the day for pets. Bring forth the pets!
With spring training no longer a novelty and no actual games to cover, baseball’s news cycle is stuck in a brief rut where it has to rely on waterskiing squirrels to stay alive. Today’s example comes to you in the form of a hairless cat named Mr. Delicious. He belongs to Yankees first baseman Greg Bird.
I went to the set of this year’s annual Puppy Bowl, and I made sure to bring a camera. The more I type, the more you’ll have to scroll past to see the baby animals, so I’ll cut that shit out.
On October 18th, 1963, the Centre national d’études in France was set to send a small cat named Félix into space. After lagging behind its Soviet and American competitors, France was eager to stake its claim in the space race—with cats, for some reason. But on launch day, the mischievous little beast went missing—and…
A soccer match between Pachuca and Jaguares in Liga MX was briefly and adorably interrupted by a happy-go-lucky doggie that just wanted to enjoy an open expanse of grass. What a good dog!
After getting his internet privileges taken away by the Ecuadorian government in October, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is evidently bored. Currently in exile from the United States and facing rape charges in Europe, without internet, Assange has found a better way to pass the time: playing dress-up with his kitty…
