  • Jalen Rose NBA Draft Player Comparisons: Not So Great (Tweets)

    Jalen Rose NBA Draft Player Comparisons: Not So Great (Tweets)

    Jalen Rose gets paid actual money to watch the NBA Draft and tell the viewers at home a little bit about the players as they get picked. To do this, Jalen Rose compares the players getting picked to other players in the league with whom viewers are already somewhat familiar, which in theory is a […]

    Stephen A. Smith Makes Sexist Comment About Women’s Soccer (Video)

    As if Stephen A. Smith didn’t already have enough of the female population pissed off at him for his insensitive remarks regarding domestic violence following last year’s Ray Rice incident. Now the ESPN analyst and First Take host is back in the spotlight (for all the wrong reasons) after making some male chauvinist remarks while commentating […]

    Did LeBron James Just Flash His Junk on Live TV? (Video)

    LeBron James‘ play has been the story of the first three games during these NBA Finals.  It looks like his junk may be the talk of Game 4, after he flashed it on live television prior to the start of tonight’s contest. You can see the action that revealed King James’ junk to the viewers […]

    Iman Shumpert Offers Up a ‘First Take’ Remix Rap (Video)

    In case you were wondering if there was anyone left that will go to bat for Stephen A. Smith, Iman Shumpert will, dammit. The Cavs guard likes the show enough to have recorded a First Take remix rap, and it’s…it’s… …it’s…not great. And not just because Stephen A. Smith has said a lot of stupid stuff […]

    Check Out ESPN’s NBA Finals Stuart Scott Tribute (Video)

    The late great Stuart Scott was a fixture at the NBA Finals, doing court-side interviews, providing pre-game analysis, and serving as MC for the presentation of the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Sadly, Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals happened to fall on the five-month anniversary of Scott’s passing after a protracted battle against cancer, and […]

  • ESPN Defends Choice of Caitlyn Jenner for Arthur Ashe Courage Award

    ESPN Defends Choice of Caitlyn Jenner for Arthur Ashe Courage Award

    A lot of folks were outraged this week when ESPN announced they would award their Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Caitlyn Jenner. Seriously. Outraged about an ESPY award, something ESPN invented to give themselves something to talk about during the MLB All-Star break. Ostensibly, the reason for this outrage was that there were at least […]

  • There Will Be a John Daly 30 for 30, and It Will Be Fantastic

    There Will Be a John Daly 30 for 30, and It Will Be Fantastic

    ESPN announced this week that they are making a John Daly 30 for 30 film, which will obviously be absolutely fantastic. John Daly has been the most interesting and entertaining man in golf for the last quarter century. The overweight, heavy-drinking, heavy-smoking, long-driving, platinum blonde broke onto the scene way back in 1991 when he […]

  • 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)

    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)

    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. […]
