This is a couple of weeks old, but it’s endearing: A diehard Vancouver Grizzlies fan went on a mission to find the defunct team’s reclusive center Bryant “Big Country” Reeves. Unlike a lot of quests in this vein, she actually reached a satisfying resolution. That resolution at one point includes Big Country saying…
Radio host Kirk Minihane, who stepped away from his morning show Kirk & Callahan because of mental health issues, is moving on from WEEI, although he will be staying within the station’s parent company Entercom. He’s getting his own show on a radio app next year.
Phil Kessel got into a fight? Phil Kessel got into a fight!
The Skins beat the Buccaneers 16-3 yesterday, and apparently a victory over a three-win squad gave some social media doofus the gumption to try to dunk on the losers online.
Seahawks offensive lineman Justin Britt is listed at 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds, but Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald—five inches shorter and 35 pounds lighter—was not going to let his opponent’s late shot go unpunished in Sunday’s game.
Whether Saints head coach Sean Payton was angry or just trying to hype up his team before Sunday’s game against the Bengals, he seriously fucked up the fire alarm in the visiting locker room at Paul Brown Stadium. What’d he use to do this damage? Does he have fists made of steel?
Carmelo Anthony has missed the Houston Rockets’ last two games with an illness. The only cure for it sounds like a buyout.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Enjoy the weekend.
Actor Woody Harrelson was in London for today’s start of the World Chess Championship between grandmasters Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana. Harrelson thought he’d lighten up the tense 12-game match with a little joke during the first move ceremony—chess’s version of a first pitch or puck drop, basically. Instead,…
This really sucks. Two days after Dez Bryant signed a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints, specifically so he could join a good team and prove he was worth a multi-year deal next offseason, he left practice with an injury that might be an Achilles tear, according to multiple reports.
Nathan Peterman had the best game of his career last Sunday against the Bears. Yes, he threw for three interceptions and no touchdowns as he averaged a horrendous 3.84 yards per attempt on 41 passes, and yes, the Bills lost 41-9, but ... it appears there is no positive point on which to end this sentence.
Worcester (Mass.) Technical High School announced Thursday that it had canceled the last two games of its football season as the school and police conduct an investigation into alleged hazing, according to Worcester Magazine.
KSNV News 3 sportscaster Randy Howe was arrested Tuesday morning for allegedly masturbating at an unnamed bar in North Las Vegas, according to a police report obtained by the Las Vegas Sun. Police have charged him with indecent exposure and open gross lewdness.
Pop culture gets absorbed by sports fairly quickly, but it has to travel light years farther to reach golf. That’s why some cruel person at the PGA is now making these senior tour pros try to recreate dances from Fortnite, the popular online video game that is also the reason you see all those kids flailing on the big…
Dez Bryant has finally found a team that’ll give him what he wants, and it’s a pretty good team, too. The New Orleans Saints have agreed to sign the former Cowboys receiver to a one-year deal for the rest of the season.
College football fetishizes the roles of its coaches as more than just coaches. They’re Teachers of Student-Athletes and Molders of Men. Always with the molding of men! In reality, the coaching pool is a mixture of bloated, irritable hicks and ancient, anal-retentive freaks. (Both categories are overpaid and suck at…
Before last Saturday’s Air Force-Army college football game, two dopey West Point cadets decided to prank their rivals by stealing their live mascots, which are falcons. Not knowing how to take care of an animal, these Army morons crammed the two birds into crates. It’s so unlike the military to use excessive force.
