Ohio State University president Michael Drake and Stanford University president Marc Tessier-Lavigne have joined that dipshit from Notre Dame and that dipshit from Texas as the latest university presidents to say that college athletes should not be paid. Young people should not be paid for their revenue-generating…
The idea of Marshawn Lynch coming out of retirement to play for the Oakland Raiders has been floating around for some time, and now it seems like this is actually happening.
I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting to swear off basketball forever after watching the fourth quarter of Game 5 between the Rockets and Thunder, which was defined by ill-advised foul calls and ill-advised shots, most of them coming from the Thunder’s star player, Russell Westbrook.
The best piece of basketball writing you will read today is by Dion Waiters at The Players’ Tribune.
According to multiple reports, the ownership group led by Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush has submitted the winning bid to purchase the Miami Marlins from disgusting rich person Jeffrey Loria.
One of the weakest things to happen in sports this year was Lexi Thompson losing an LPGA major because some asshole who was watching the tournament at home tattled on her for placing a ball no more than an inch away from where she had previously marked it.
Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines went to Rome for reasons that are unknown and uninteresting to me. What I am interested in are the various images of Jim Harbaugh enjoying his vacay that have been shared on social media.
Look at this shit. This shit sucks.
Over the weekend, the Boston Globe published a story about Tom Brady’s dealings with Best Buddies, a nonprofit dedicated to helping intellectually and developmentally disabled people that Brady has lent his time and image to. The Globe discovered that Best Buddies has been making regular payments to Brady’s personal…
Professional athletes do and say a lot of mean things to each other over the course of a game, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything as disrespectful as the Rockets’ bench treating Andre Roberson’s bricked free throw into a live comedy special.
Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams shared a postgame podium after yesterday’s loss to the Rockets. The first question came from Westbrook’s old rival, Berry Tramel, and even though it was addressed to Adams, it was Westbrook’s time to shine.
The bear wants to eat the girl.
Okay so the Nashville Predators upset the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round of the NHL playoffs, and Gnash, the Preds’ mascot that has an official Twitter account for some reason, is angry that nobody at ESPN predicted the upset:
The thing about Mike Pence subjecting an airplane full of reporters to an in-flight screening of Hoosiers is that you can’t even be mad at him for liking a bad sports movie.
Former Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer escaped the toilet factory in South Bend when he declared for the NFL draft. His draft prospects are currently a bit murky, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him selected in the first or second round. But based on Kizer’s own self-evaluation, which he shared with USA Today
German authorities have arrested a 28-year-old man of German and Russian descent who they believe tried to blow up the Borussia Dortmund team bus before a Champions League game earlier this month.

The Tiger Woods comeback season lasted all of four months. In December, Woods announced that he was once again healthy enough to play golf and even played in a PGA event. Two months later, he had to withdraw from a tournament due to back spasms. Today, Woods announced that he just had back surgery and will not be…
This morning, the Buffalo Sabres announced that head coach Dan Bylsma and general manager Tim Murray have been fired. Such a culling at the conclusion of a 33-37-12 season, a regression in the middle of what was supposed to be a rebuild, isn’t the most shocking thing to happen, but the timing of the firings has a lot…
Clayton Kershaw dominated the Rockies last night because he is the best pitcher in the world and striking out 10 guys in seven innings is something he can do while hungover. He’s good enough that a momentary delay at the start of the game shouldn’t bother him too much, and yet such a delay really bothered him last…
WBZ Boston is reporting that former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was found dead in his jail cell after apparently hanging himself early this morning, had “John 3:16,” a reference to the Biblical verse, written on his forehead when his body was discovered.
