Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Here comes Monday back again.
South Florida defensive back Hassan Childs was shot three times in a road rage incident after reportedly pulling a gun on a man and his family Saturday night. The 22-year-old fifth-year senior is recovering and in stable condition.
You may remember that UFC golden boy Sage Northcutt tried his hand at trash talking before his December fight against Mickey Gall. Highlights included, “I’m going out there to win, and that’s how it is,” and “Sometimes people ask for things, and they gotta be careful what they say.”
Have you ever watched curling and thought, man, this is great, but what if the stones were replaced with Soviet-era cars? A Russian insurance agent has! Here is the debut of the resulting sport, from last week:
Cleveland has made a point of getting out in front of free agency to lock down their young talent with early contract extensions—Jason Kipnis three years ago, Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco two years ago, José Ramírez just this week. So it completely stands to reason that they’d be after the same thing with star…
With NFL owners set to vote this week on the Raiders’ relocation to Las Vegas, Roger Goodell has sent one more it’s over message to the city of Oakland. Though the move is reportedly all but officially a done deal, the city presented one final plan to keep the team this week, with a proposal for a $1.3 billion stadium…
The “odds are” that Carlos Rodon will start the year on the disabled list, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn told reporters yesterday.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Let’s go.
Brock Boeser is only just barely no longer a hockey teen. (He turned 20 last month.) Yesterday, he was playing for the University of North Dakota. This morning, the first-round draft pick signed a contract with the Canucks, and this afternoon, he scored his first goal:
The Albanian soccer federation has denounced a group of fans who threw flares and smoke bombs during yesterday’s World Cup qualifying match against Italy, suspending play for several minutes. The match was stopped for nine minutes in the second half and both teams were sent off as one end of the pitch filled with…
Ryan Zimmerman showed off his scrambling skills to somehow avoid what should have been a pretty straightforward Brian McCann tag at home plate in today’s spring training game against the Astros:
In South Carolina coach Frank Martin’s postgame press conference last night, preteen Sports Illustrated Kids reporter Max Bonnstetter asked an interesting and well-formulated question—one that, somehow, upset a handful of “adult” journalists:
If you have a soft spot for ridiculous comic book concepts, you may remember the NHL’s failed superhero tie-in from a few years ago. (If not, never fear, the full set of team-themed heroes is still available here and includes such glorious taglines as “underworld maverick of the Garden State” for the New Jersey Devil…
With less than a week until the World Championship begins, negotiations between USA Hockey and the women’s national team have only gotten rockier. An attempt to find replacement players has been publicly embarrassing, with dozens turning down the request and instead declaring their support for the women’s national…
Devin Booker’s 70-point game last night was special, insofar as it was rare. Booker is now one of just six players in NBA history to hit the 70-point mark, joining one-name legends like Wilt and Kobe, and any club that exclusive is inarguably something pretty cool. But the fact that it was rare doesn’t necessarily…
Joakim Noah will be suspended 20 games for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy—reportedly for unknowingly taking an over-the-counter supplement, which is currently banned by the league but would no longer be punished under the next season’s new collective bargaining agreement.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Have a swell week.
No. 2 Kentucky just barely held on to thwart an upset attempt from No. 10 Wichita State with a 65-62 win Sunday afternoon.
A group of protesters are flying the confederate flag above a parking garage next to the basketball arena in Greenville, S.C., that will host this evening’s Duke-South Carolina and UNC-Arkansas games.
There are five hockey games that have yet to begin today, but I feel confident in calling this the NHL highlight of the weekend. Behold Phil Kessel flipping the puck over the back of the net for teammate Patric Hornqvist to tap in:
