  • Michelle Beadle Shares Her Thoughts on Getting Banned from Mayweather-Pacquiao

    Michelle Beadle Shares Her Thoughts on Getting Banned from Mayweather-Pacquiao

    As you may have heard, last week Floyd Mayweather revoked press credentials for CNN’s Rachel Nichols and ESPN’s Michelle Beadle ahead of his big fight against Manny Pacquiao. And while no one actually came out and admitted it—The Money Team in fact denied that it happened at all, saying it was just some sort of misunderstanding—it […]

  • TNT’s Ernie Johnson Gave His Sports Emmy to Stuart Scott’s Daughters

    TNT’s Ernie Johnson Gave His Sports Emmy to Stuart Scott’s Daughters

    The 35th Annual Sports Emmy Awards were held at the Lincoln Center in New York on Tuesday night. Normally, that would not be news. Charles Barkley, Terry Bradshaw, and Tim McCarver are all multiple Sports Emmy winners, so it’s hard to take the awards too seriously. However, this year was different. In January, the sports broadcasting world lost a […]

  • ESPN2 Airs Live Video Game Competition, Twitter Goes Nuts

    ESPN2 Airs Live Video Game Competition, Twitter Goes Nuts

    Ask any habitual channel-flipper to name some of the crazy stuff they’ve seen on ESPN2, and they’ll probably have multiple interesting answers. There are the old standbys like World’s Strongest Man or sumo wrestling, or something that I believe was called “Airwave,” a kind of summer ski jump competition that I saw in high school (unless […]

    Check Out David Spade’s Solid Britt McHenry Parody (Video)

    ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has taken a lot of heat this week after that video of her being a jerk to a tow lot attendant hit the web. Because apparently the internet just doesn’t like people who say things like, “I’m in the news, sweetheart, I’ll f***ing sue this place,” or “I’m on television and […]

    Jameis Winston Explains His Crab Leg Theft to Jim Harbaugh (Video)

    I can’t say I watch the ESPN show Draft Academy, but I think I know what it’s about. It follows NFL draft prospects around and gets them in front of coaches to explain their way of thinking and, presumably, prepare them for the draft. It sounds like a terrible idea for the players and a great one […]

    ESPN Suspends Britt McHenry after Angry Rant Surfaces (Video)

    ESPN personality Britt McHenry has been given some time to think about what she’s done as the Worldwide Leader suspended her one week after an angry rant was captured on tape. McHenry was at a tow lot (not a lot of happy people visit those), when a surveillance camera recorded her berating and threatening a tow lot employee. […]

    Jeff Van Gundy Calls Out The Masters’ Bigotry During Telecast (Video)

    A lot has been said of ESPN losing its bite when it comes to critical talk of sports that serve as the networks’ on-air content. Well, Jeff Van Gundy didn’t get that memo. During last night’s Phoenix-Dallas game, he abruptly and beautifully chimed in on why he doesn’t watch The Masters tournament after simply stating, “I can’t.” […]

    After the opening round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament, there’s only one perfect March Madness bracket remaining on ESPN’s Tournament Challenge.  And while there’s still hope for user Malaquias4394 to get each of his remaining picks correct, we can at least tell you right now that he won’t get the final score correct—he has Kansas beating Duke, […]

    How Many Perfect Brackets Remain After Day 1? Find Out Here

    This year, ESPN’s NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge had 11.57-million entrants. After just the first three games of the tournament (two of which saw No. 3 seeds lose to No. 14 seeds), only 0.7% of those brackets (or 86,737) were still perfect, according to ESPNU’s Twitter account: 11.57 million brackets entered in the ESPN Tournament Challenge.

    Stephen A Smith Questions Chip Kelly Moves, Suggests Racism? (Video)

    Did Stephen A Smith call Chip Kelly a racist?  First, the backstory. It started on today’s edition of ESPN’s First Take, when Stephen A Smith questions Chip Kelly and the Eagles’ decision to let players like LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, and DeSean Jackson go, while keeping players like Riley Cooper around.  During their conversation, Smith made comments like, […]
