Fifty eggs is a lot of eggs, it turns out. Maybe you knew that already, without having to learn it by eating them; congrats, your smart-guy medal is in the mail.
A 24-year-old Red Sox fan, on his way back to New England from Yankee Stadium after watching Boston play the Yankees on Wednesday night*, was electrocuted and died after climbing on top of the train and touching overhead wires.
Some 53 days after the Red Sox won the AL East, they made it official. With a back-and-forth 11-6 win at Yankee Stadium, Boston put the finishing touches on a regular season that’s all but assured to end with the most wins in franchise history.
The Raiders are 0-2, and Bears pass-rusher extraordinaire Khalil Mack has:
NHL opening night is less than two weeks away, and it’s safe to assume the Canadiens, mired in mediocrity and dysfunction, feel like they have a lot to prove. They’re also not going to be very good at hockey, which is often a recipe for a team eager to scrap. Yes, even in preseason.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Treasure this weather.
Those were good times, weren’t they? When that big ESPN report on a schism between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, driven in part by Brady’s shady nutrition “guru” Alex Guerrero, dropped right before the playoffs and set off rounds of denials and non-denials and recriminations, and a whole lot of screaming from…
Iowa State golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena, the 2018 Big 12 champion, was found dead on a golf course Monday morning in Ames, Iowa. On Monday evening, Ames police announced the arrest of Collin Daniel Richards, who has been charged with first-degree murder.
A Seattle NHL team for the 2020–21 season is now a fait accompli. There’s a city council vote next week to move forward on the KeyArena renovation, then a pair of NHL votes, but by December’s board of governor’s meeting, it’ll be official. [Seattle Times]
The Browns lost by three points in a game they missed eight points’ worth of kicks. A particularly painful loss even for a team that’s had a lot of them, and a miserable game for second-year kicker Zane Gonzalez. This is of no consolation to anyone involved, but it’ll be Gonzalez’s last game as a Brown.
I don’t want to hear a single reader complain about having to watch the Giants in primetime. Buddy, I live here; I’m forced to watch them every week. And yes, based on this extensive firsthand knowledge, they absolutely are this bad.
The Bills came into Sunday’s game against the Chargers, an eventual 31-20 loss, with just four cornerbacks dressed. After Phillip Gaines was carted off with an elbow injury, they were down to three. And then Vontae Davis just disappeared. Not on the field. Not on the sidelines. No reported injury. Just: gone.
The Jaguars’ home opener is a rematch of the AFC Championship, and the kickoff temperature for that one was a balmy 48 degrees. But that was at Foxboro. This is Jacksonville, a.k.a. Satan’s armpit, and temperature at kickoff is 97 degrees—with the humidity making it feel more like 107. It is the hottest NFL game since…
In a very special Sunday presentation of Thursday Night Football, the Titans beat the Texans 20-17 in a game that saw Blaine Gabbert throw for 117 yards and have the third-highest passer rating on his own team.
Hello, welcome to the Week 2 meeting of the Patrick Mahomes fan club. I know it’s early. But our boy is throwing bolts.
If the Browns’ announcement that they’re done with Josh Gordon came as a shock, well, things moved quickly. According to multiple (and not always concordant) reports, Gordon showed up to work on Saturday late, injured, and maybe a little messed up.
The Raiders are bad. But on the other hand, they’re also old. The strangest roster in the NFL is also the most dysfunctionally run, with no one really sure who’s making the decisions. “Some of [GM Reggie] McKenzie’s own personnel staffers,” Yahoo sports reported earlier this month, “were not entirely clear on what he…
Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold was perfectly okay in his NFL debut last week, a 48-17 Jets win over the Lions more notable for the Jets defense knowing “everything” the Lions were running before they snapped the ball. But Darnold, following a first-ever-pass pick-six, got it together and looked as good as any Jets QB has…
