During yesterday’s Hearthstone matches at DreamHack Denver, the commentators mentioned a player called “MTGKid” between matches. A young kid, MTGKid is actually Quinn Kiefer—a 12-year-old Magic: The Gathering player.
One of the bad things about the USMNT missing out on the World Cup is that there will now be a generation of youngsters who won’t fall in love with the team and the sport. And while it’s only been days since the U.S.’s ouster became official, we’re already seeing examples of this phenomenon. Case in point: the above…
Boxers will usually preen and maybe even scuffle with each other at weigh-ins to scare up interest for their match, but when has a fighter’s small child ever punched his rival in the penis?
Serena Williams has given birth to a baby girl with fiance Alexis Ohanian, according to her sister, Venus Williams. Us Weekly also reported the news.
“Try not to drop your baby,” said pediatrician Tricia Jean Gold, who practices at Tribeca Pediatrics in New York City, when I call to ask her advice.
Hey, don’t do that!
Charlie Blackmon is one of the best center fielders in baseball and has an extremely large beard. Both of these things have put him in good position to be a favorite among Rockies fans, and it looks like the formula is working for him:
Is a water balloon fight sports? Of course it is.
This kid had his shirt signed by Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, and he was absolutely overwhelmed by the moment while being interviewed by Pittsburgh’s WTAE.
OXON HILL, Md.—A row of metal detectors guards the hotel ballroom that stages the Scripps National Spelling Bee. There’s less than an hour until the final day kicks off with Round 4, but this main entrance is nearly empty—a trio of security guards are the only people here. I ask the woman who searches my bag if they…
This is great. Last night, the Pirates’ broadcast touted Sunday’s kids day, where all fans 14 and under in attendance would be given a free baseball glove. To go along with the promotion, the broadcast showed kids in the stands.
The accuracy of this tyke’s shot is obviously impressive as hell, but what I am here for is the taunting of the candle. This child is going to have a long and polarizing career, at least unless the candle comes back at him studs-up.
Spring is here. The weather is warm and the flowers are blooming and we, the too-lucky denizens of the hockey internet, are once again blessed with a bumper crop of names from the 14- and 15-year-old hockey players taken in yesterday’s WHL Bantam Draft. We have delighted in these drafts for a couple of years, and it…

Before Jordan Mathews was a basketball player on Gonzaga, he was a slightly smaller basketball player on the children’s show Teletubbies. There he is, practicing with his dad Phil, former coach of the San Francisco Dons and current coach of Riverside City College. Jordan’s shooting percentage wasn’t as great back…
It’s honestly surprising that this doesn’t happen more often with remote interviews from subjects’ houses.
If you’d like to see what the sentence “Oh my god, this is the coolest thing that has ever happened to me!” looks like when played out in real life, this Russian kid’s reaction to seeing José Mourinho in the tunnel before yesterday’s Rostov-Manchester United match will do the trick:
Who could blame the kid with a matchup like Oregon Tech vs. Saint Francis in front of him!
One of my midlevel life regrets is that I’ve never gotten to Florida or Arizona for Spring Training, because it seems like it offers the things I like most about live baseball: Sitting outside in nice weather, eating and drinking, and just absorbing the entire sensory experience—the smells, the sounds—without…
