As some of the more astute observers have noticed, my name, title, email, and Twitter no longer appear on the Deadspin masthead. This isn't an error; I am leaving for...different pastures. I can now be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Sunday's NFL fight between Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson did not come out of nowhere. As this video shows, the two were getting testy with each other well before it advanced to blows.
This image, a screen-grab of veteran character actor Tommy Flanagan enjoying a Jameson booze box during this week's season finale of Sons of Anarchy is causing a relative stir, in part because such a booze box cannot be purchased.
During the Bulls annual "Circus Trip," two important events took place that may chart the course for the rest of the team's season: they shared Thanksgiving dinner together as a team, and Joakim Noah shared a hotel steam room with John Elway.
A Houston man was arrested Sunday for kicking a police horse outside of Reliant Park, thereby making Andre Johnson's beatdown of Cortland Finnegan the second most lopsided physical altercation in Texas that day.
Welcome to Surprisingly Congruous When You Think About It Mixtape Theater. Today's entry: Lions great Barry Sanders set to Clint Mansell & The Kronos Quartet's overture from the Requiem For A Dream soundtrack.
We received a LobsterGram, it's less delicious than a candygram, but it's more fun because it comes with live lobsters. We didn't know what to do with them (before cooking them) so we raced them on the Gawker HQ roof deck. Watch.
Stu Scott was hyping an upcoming replay of Derek Anderson's meltdown last night when, in describing the cough button that "bleeps" out curse words on TV, Scott accidentally used a curse word on TV.
Yet again, football fans took justice into their own hands. Here we have a mouthy (looking) Dolphins fan apparently insulting everyone around him before getting punched out by a Raiders fan. And you'd better believe the ethnographer confirmed he recorded it all.
During that famous Game 6 of the '86 World Series, a Mets fan parachuted onto the field with a "Go Mets" sign and a whole lotta balls. That Vin Scully—who celebrated his 83rd birthday yesterday—made a perfect call is gravy.
Last Wednesday, UConn and Kentucky faced off in the Maui Invitational Final. Kemba Walker had blown the tournament up in the previous games and saw his NBA Draft stock rising, so why was Celtics GM Danny Ainge so bored with the proceedings?
The Clasico match between Barcelona and Real Madrid was absurdly lopsided. Barca netted five goals in an utter domination of Cristiano and the rest of Jose Mourinho's crew. Enjoy our compilation of the bloodletting.
Leron Mitchell broke his leg during the Grey Cup last night. It's really awful, but the YouTube description is beautifully poetic: "Leron Mitchell snaps his leg during the CFL championship game. His team also lost." When it rains in Canada, it pours.
...and then the cops show up and everybody stands around for a few minutes before the person taping confirms that he recorded the whole thing.
Midway through last night's Thunder-Rockets game, Kevin Durant swung the ball out to Russell Westbrook who drove straight to the hoop and elevated for a dunk that straight embarrassed alleged defensive maestro Shane Battier.
While most of the country was being treated to a meaningless Notre Dame-USC game, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State had themselves a barn burner. Unseen by most of the country? This gem: a tag-team interception by State's Broderick Brown and Shaun Lewis.
