Today marks the first full day of baseball’s Winter Meetings, that wonderful annual gathering in which baseball executives text each other trade proposals in closer physical proximity to one another than is usually the case while baseball writers repeatedly get drunk at the same hotel bar. This special event comes…
Yes, our dingus mingus of a President said something dumb and wrong, and once again he is being owned online for it. This time, in an effort to protect his image from the indignity of, umm, not being on the cover of one specific issue of one specific magazine, he made some shit up about “actually, I dumped them”:
It’s opening night of the NBA season! It’s time to enjoy basketball, the best sport. But if you’re planning on attending an NBA game and getting up close and personal with your favorite players, you should know what objects not to bring to the arena.
Earlier today, All Takes Matter co-host Jason Whitlock sent a tweet that was genuinely mystifying:
Members of the administrative commission of dipshit also-ran-ass airport Brainerd Lakes Regional reportedly spoke out against NFL anthem protests Thurdsay, while discussing air travel contingencies for the 2018 Super Bowl, to be held in Minneapolis. This world is a goddamn toilet.
Conor McGregor, who’s currently luxuriating in the afterglow of getting his ass kicked for money, recently saw a big boat. He was just hanging out on a boat of his own in Ibiza, but this boat was even bigger. The Irishman was struck dumb by the presence of the Big Boat, and yearned to learn more about it.
This morning, a day after news broke that the Red Sox allegedly used technology to steal signs from the Yankees, I called up executives from both teams to ask about how the smartwatch-assisted, sign-stealing operation came to be and what they thought would and should happen next.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is boxing Conor McGregor this weekend, and the whole thing is completely awesome. While the traditionalist fight press sees this simply as a capitalist exercise with an inevitable result and no titles on the line, that’s not exactly the case—at least not officially, that is.
Relentlessly positive UFC golden boy Sage Northcutt has had a rough time of it lately, what with losing two of his last three and having had his most recently scheduled bout called off due to injuries to him and his opponent. Earlier tonight, though, Twitter user Zombie Prophet revealed a discovery suggesting that the…
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio announced yesterday that he had a giveaway for his readers: eight codes for a free copy of a football video game. This gesture turned out to be easier promised than executed.
Boston College head football coach and best Vine user in history Steve Addazio had an interesting take on yesterday’s solar eclipse. While everyone else was fretting about possibly going blind by staring directly into the sun, Addazio refused to be cowed by fear:
Hair loss, like death, is coming for us all. No matter how strong your genes are, life eventually steals your flowing locks and turns them white, or, worse yet, takes them altogether. You can fight it, but nature always wins. Which brings us to Manchester City attacker David Silva.
Bill Simmons had his buddy Hench on his podcast yesterday. They ranked the best 25 Patriots wins since 2001. It took almost two hours and I listened to all of it. Here is the correct ranking of Simmons’s rankings, honorable mentions excluded.
Folks, what you have here are two warriors, hungry to compete on every play.
After a lengthy layoff, the nation’s favorite TV show is coming back, and with it, the return of intense fan scrutiny, wild theorizing, and mass pandemonium.
It’s really happening.
The San Diego Padres had the third pick in this evening’s MLB Draft. They chose MacKenzie Gore, who is a pitcher from North Carolina born in 1999. Gore’s first and last names are both cool, but that’s not why we’re here in this blog post. No, the important thing to note here is his foot. Look at that dang foot.
