These New Basketball Sneakers Are Stupid These New Basketball Sneakers Are Stupid

Five years ago I was in a gaggle of journalists on Nike’s campus. There must’ve been hundreds of us. It felt like overkill at the time. I struck up a conversation with a reporter from the Portland Business Journal, and he was just as mystified as I was. “Where’d they put you up?” he asked me. I told him: “The Nines.”…

President Trump: I’m Going To Serve Fast Food Burgers And Pizza To The Clemson Football Team [Update] President Trump: I’m Going To Serve Fast Food Burgers And Pizza To The Clemson Football Team [Update]

The Clemson Tigers, 15-0 and national champions, will make the traditional national championship team visit to the White House tonight. That this visit is happening during a government shutdown has rankled some, especially since not every team is even invited anymore. (Villanova didn’t get one. The Red Sox did. The…

Chiefs Fans Threw Snowballs During Their Playoff Game

The Kansas City Chiefs rolled over the Indianapolis Colts, 31-13, to advance to the AFC Championship Game. To keep themselves amused during the blowout, Chiefs fans threw snowballs onto the field at least three different times.

Royals Employees Were The Ones Playing Mario Kart On The Kauffman Stadium Jumbotron Royals Employees Were The Ones Playing Mario Kart On The Kauffman Stadium Jumbotron

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Indianapolis Colts in this weekend’s playoff matchup, so Kansas City’s KCTV5 sent a helicopter out to get aerial shots of the city’s football stadium before the game. What the cameras ended up seeing was much better than shots of a 50-year-old stadium could have ever hoped to be.

Clemson Can’t Hold A Candle To The Last College Football Team To Go 15-0 Clemson Can’t Hold A Candle To The Last College Football Team To Go 15-0

Dabo Swinney was ecstatic, and wrong. After his Clemson Tigers routed Alabama to win the national title, he shouted to the crowd: “There ain’t never been a 15-0 team in college football history.”

The Ravens Fumbled Three Times In Their First Eight Offensive Plays

The Ravens did not have the best start to their postseason, at least on offense.

Eagles’ Third-String QB Throws Touchdown Pass, Negotiates With Kid To Get Football Back

Nate Sudfeld entered the Eagles’ playoff-clinching 24-0 win over Washington yesterday after Nick Foles got hurt and threw just one pass. It was a 22-yard TD toss to Nelson Agholor, the first touchdown throw of Sudfeld’s career.

Maddie Meyer from Getty Images photographed today’s Jets-Patriots game. She got some excellent photos of Tom Brady, like the one above.

Week 17 Is A Great Week To Watch Quarterbacks Catch Touchdowns

The early games on Week 17 Sunday are not that interesting. Everything with some drama was flexed to 4 p.m., so fans are left watching a bunch of blowouts and meaningless games.

Temple Royally Fucked Up This Fake Punt

The Temple Owls were once beating the Duke Blue Devils by 13 points in their bowl game. It looked like the Owls might get a win for their perpetually fired-up interim coach, Ed Foley.

Duquesne Coach Keith Dambrot Lost His Mind Over A Late Blocking Foul

Duquesne, a 5.5-point underdog, played a back-and-forth game with Penn State last night. The Dukes led by seven at halftime, and they tied it on a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left.

Finally, A Philly Team Beat Villanova Finally, A Philly Team Beat Villanova

PHILADELPHIA—He was obviously going to miss. Phil Booth had three guys on him when he took the shot, and one of them was 6-foot-8 Penn forward A.J. Brodeur. The shot left Booth’s hands wrong. The arc was too high.

Jason Witten retired in May after 15 NFL seasons, leaving for a job as a color commentator on Monday Night Football. Jason Garrett has apparently been trying to get him to un-retire.

Cross Country Runner Faceplants Across Finish Line

Congratulations to Jimmy Gressier, a 21-year-old French runner who defended his title in the Under-23 European men’s cross country championships today. We’d also like to extend our apologies to Jimmy Gressier, the two-time defending Euro cross country champ who many people now know only because he face-planted while…

Here’s Bill Walton On Jay-Z, The Pacific Northwest, And Ex-Idaho Sen. Larry Craig’s “Wide Stance”

Gonzaga played Washington last night. It was a pretty good game! Rui Hachimura hit a foul-line jumper with less than a second left to give the Bulldogs the win. But, obviously, this exciting 81-79 game was overshadowed by Bill Walton’s announcing, who was working with play-by-play announcer Dave Pasch. He pontificated…

Monday Night’s Best Football Game Was Between Mascots

Philadelphia has a lot of new mascots. This year alone we’ve met Gritty, Phang, Wingston. Franklin is only three years old. Last night at halftime, the Eagles had a pro vs. college mascots football game and it was great. You can watch the whole thing here, or follow down below as I break down some of the all-22.

If Kendall Jenner Is Going To Drexel Basketball Games With Ben Simmons, It Really Is True Love If Kendall Jenner Is Going To Drexel Basketball Games With Ben Simmons, It Really Is True Love

I was once like you. I thought all celebrity relationships were a sham. Two celebrities “date” to get the news to say their names without having to pay for it. The old pro wrestling adage applies here: If it’s on TV, it’s a work.

This Is Too Many Stuffed Toys

I liked stuffed toys. I had a bunch when I was little and despite being 35, I still have Doggy—a stuffed toy that is older than I am, and which is missing its nose and one eye, and also may actually be a rabbit. I had to learn to sew to re-attach Doggy’s head recently.
