ESPN spent this week caving to the most cynically motivated people on the fringes of sports media and their manufactured outrage at SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill’s accurate comments about the president. Thus the network finds itself in the midst of a culture war that’s activated every reactionary attack dog out…
During today’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to comment on SportsCenter host Jemele Hill’s recent tweets about Donald Trump, in which she described the President and his policies as white supremacist. Hill was publicly reprimanded by ESPN for her tweets.
Also being hit by a bunch of unwanted pitches right now? Equifax customers.
When you are fleeing your home, and perhaps your state, and perhaps your former life, as a historic hurricane bears down on you, it’s a good idea that you take a few moments to remember what’s really important in this lifetime: that the Jets are a bunch of junk:
Last Friday, former Notre Dame linebacker Douglas Randolph filed a lawsuit against Notre Dame, Brian Kelly, head Notre Dame football trainer Rob Hunt, and a handful of doctors, alleging that the Notre Dame football and training staff deliberately concealed a serious spinal injury from him, which he played with and…
The San Francisco Giants currently have the worst record in all of Major League Baseball, and are running Pablo Sandoval, whom they dragged out of the Boston Harbor earlier this year, out to third base every day. If there’s one stat to capture just how bleak this season has been, it might be this: Sandoval is hitless…
This morning, a day after news broke that the Red Sox allegedly used technology to steal signs from the Yankees, I called up executives from both teams to ask about how the smartwatch-assisted, sign-stealing operation came to be and what they thought would and should happen next.
Thank you for your continued support. Please enjoy a song significantly less sad than our shit-ass national men’s team.
The Trump administration is moving ahead with its retraction of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy, which allowed people who’d immigrated to the United States as children the opportunity to receive work permits and two-year deportation deferrals. This is horrible, breathtakingly…
Is this the holiday when across the country we remember those who labored to make us what we are today?
Do not hate LaVar Bell. You are playing right into Lavar Bell’s hands if you hate Lavar Bell. You are giving him more power by hating, you are enhancing his image if you hate him, you are making him larger if you hate him. Like Freddy Krueger in the first Elm Street.
There are times—yes, there are—when LaVar Ball is right. Often he is a grandstanding buffoon who gets the benefit of the doubt for drumming up attention for his sons, without any particular concern for whether his sons much want that attention, and with even less concern for whether the gains earned by that attention…
Cleveland’s police union will refuse to participate in the raising of the flag during the national anthem ceremony at the Browns home opener, to protest Browns players kneeling during the national anthem.
Tell ‘em, Nature Boy:
If there was one thing the ongoing Colin Kaepernick unemployment saga really needed, it was a flaccid, incomprehensibly contrarian op-ed in the dear old New York Times. Boy does this one, from Colin Fleming, not disappoint:
You’re thinking of water into wine, not shit into blood. A common mistake.
Jesus Christ, that was great. I’m now going to burn all my columns and not write anything else until I can do something like this (never).
ROCKLAND, Maine—The New Hampshire/Maine split on I-95 in Portsmouth, N.H., is unpredictable. Sometimes you’re able to breeze through to your final destination—back to your shit hole of a dorm room in Durham, or off to the Kittery Trading Post to buy a crossbow and a bottle of deer piss—but other times you’re forced to…
