    Sam Ponder Pets a Glorious Mullet on ESPN’s ‘College GameDay’ (Video)

    Sam Ponder should know that any time you interact with the college students on ESPN’s College GameDay, you’re going to get some weirdness. She probably did know that when she petted a South Dakota State student’s mullet. She just didn’t care. What a trooper. We’ve got the vine that shows, beyond the shadow of a doubt, […]

    Bill Simmons Is a Big Baby (Video)

    I like Bill Simmons. He’s a good writer, and Grantland is pretty great. That being said, he can be a bit of a baby sometimes, and last night was one of those times. During ESPN’s post-game wrap-up of Game 4 of the NBA Finals, it took a pretty long time for moderator Sage Steele to […]

    Meet Jacob Williamson, the Most Over-the-Top Spelling Bee Kid Ever (Videos)

    Normally the kids you see competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee are freakishly composed mini adults who wear sensible shoes and have 401 Ks. Jacob Williamson is not one of these kids. The 15-year-old from Cape Corporal, Florida, has absolutely no control over his emotions, and during the final round of the National Spelling Bee yesterday […]
