    Discovery Channel Burns Pittsburgh Penguins on Twitter

    It’s bad enough that the Pittsburgh Penguins only lasted five games before being eliminated by the New York Rangers during the opening round of the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs. Now they’re being burned for their early exit by none other than The Discovery Channel… That’s right. The Discover Channel. Or, more specifically, the Discovery Channel’s […]

  • Patriots Release Their Official Point-by-Point Wells Report Rebuttal

    Patriots Release Their Official Point-by-Point Wells Report Rebuttal

    The lawyer representing the New England Patriots has released the team’s official Wells Reports rebuttal. It’s a 20,000 word point-by-point analysis and commentary, and it’s got its own damn website. Did I read all 20,000 words? No. Did I read the abstract at the top and then skim the rest? Yes. Does that make me […]

    Mike Trout Put on a Defensive Show in Extra Innings Last Night (GIFs)

    We spoke of Mike Trout about a week ago after his killer game-winning catch. In case you were wondering, it’s not looking like that was a fluke. Last night, tied with the Rockies 1-1, the Angels went into extra innings, and Mike Trout did a pretty good job of singlehandedly stopping Colorado from drawing blood. First […]

    35 GIFs of NBA Fans at Their Best (and Worst)

    If I had to rank the fans of the four major North American pro sports leagues from most awesome to least awesome—and I don’t—I’d probably put NBA fans at the top of the list. They’re still not in the same league as college basketball and football fans, who are mostly college students and therefore expected to […]

    Warriors Fans, Being Decent People, Booed Floyd Mayweather at Game 5 (Video)

    Floyd Mayweather might be among the most recognizable athletes on the planet these days, but that doesn’t mean he’s always welcome. The reviled pugilist made an appearance at the Oracle Arena for last night’s Grizzlies-Warriors game, where he was promptly booed by Warriors fans. I guess they’re not huge fans of illiterate multimillionaires who have about a […]

  • People Think John Wall Was Throwing Up Gang Signs Last Night (Video)

    People Think John Wall Was Throwing Up Gang Signs Last Night (Video)

    I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between gang signs and sign language, so I promise to keep my opinion and thoughts out of this one. Some folks are thinking that John Wall was throwing up gang signs last night during Game 5 of the Wizards-Hawks series. He was certainly doing something with his fingers, but Doug Christie used […]

    J.J. Watt Does a Killer Schwarzenegger Impression (Video)

    Add a “far above-average Arnold Schwarzenegger impression” to the list of J.J. Watt achievements. Not only can the man jump super-high, but he could maybe pass for the Austrian movie star to a blind person with a mild ear infection. The Texans recruited several of their players to give their best Schwarzenegger impression for the camera. […]

    Man Caught Stealing Tablet after Soccer Press Conference (Video)

    If you’re going to steal a tablet, maybe don’t do it in the background of a broadcast following an Argentinian soccer press conference. Just some advice to you thieves-in-training out there. Wait until the cameras are off so millions of people don’t see you. And don’t look RIGHT INTO the camera like you’re guilty as […]

    This Hawks Kiss Cam Beer Spill Has to be Staged, Right? (Video)

    The kiss cam is a wonderful, funny innovation that provides cheap and easy entertainment for tens of thousands of sports fans. But with that entertainment comes a sacred bond, a trust, that the love we’re seeing is real. I believe that trust was betrayed last night during the Hawks-Wizards game. The framing, the reactions, and the […]

    Check Out the Terrifying Helmet Cam Footage of the Helio Castroneves Crash (Video)

    Helio Castroneves has won the Indianapolis 500 three times, putting him among the 10 greatest drivers in the race’s 104-year history. However, while taking his practice runs at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday, Castroneves demonstrated that, in auto racing, not even the all-time greats are immune to death-defying crashes. While coming around a turn, Castroneves suddenly lost […]

    RIP Harrison Barnes’ Groin, 1992-2015 (Videos)

    If you heard a weird noise last night around 11:30 ET, that was the sound of hundreds of thousands of men around the country yelling in agony as they watched Harrison Barnes’ groin get annihilated on live television. Late in the first half of Game 5 between the Warriors and Grizzlies, Golden State’s third-year forward […]
