Carlos Santana Smashed A TV With A Bat Because The Phillies Were Playing Fortnite During Games Carlos Santana Smashed A TV With A Bat Because The Phillies Were Playing Fortnite During Games

Over at ESPN, Jeff Passan has a breakdown of the clubhouse issues the Philadelphia Phillies faced in the first season of Gabe Kapler’s management last year, and it turns out they might be more relatable than you thought—when their jobs got pointless and shitty, the Phillies slacked off and played video games instead.

Florida and LSU had split a pair of overtime games in the regular season, so it’s no surprise their battle today in the SEC Tournament went down to the wire. The teams traded clutch shots in the final minute before the Gators came out on top, 76-73.

Wizards Descend On Minor-League Hockey Game To Cause Impossible Goal

The Manitoba Moose beat the Texas Stars 4-3 in AHL play on Wednesday night, but the Moose’s continued dominance on home ice is not the story here.

Connor McDavid Is Having Another Hell Of A Wasted Season Connor McDavid Is Having Another Hell Of A Wasted Season

The Oilers maybe could’ve tricked themselves into believing they were still in the playoff hunt if they had won Wednesday night, as two points would have kept them dead even with the newly optimistic Chicago Blackhawks in the wild card chase. Instead, they lost 6-3 at home to the New Jersey Devils—who had lost seven…

Every girl spends her youth dreaming of that perfect proposal from her dream guy. You know what I’m talking about. The one where you and Prince Charming are visiting fans at a March NBA game between two below-.500 teams. Harry The Hawk is there. A woman with a microphone is narrating to a semi-engaged crowd.

An Embarrassing Collapse And A Bad Whistle Might Keep Clemson Out Of The NCAA Tournament

Two NCAA Tournament candidates right on the fringe of the field of 68 faced each other on Tuesday afternoon in a second-round ACC Tournament match-up that possibly doubled as a play-in game, and it was NC State who came away victorious. Markell Johnson made a pair of free throws with 2.6 seconds remaining to give…

Artemi Panarin Very Stupidly Got In A Fight With Charlie McAvoy Artemi Panarin Very Stupidly Got In A Fight With Charlie McAvoy

Of course, this is an incredibly dumb thing for Artemi Panarin to do as his all-in team tries to claw its way into the playoffs. If someone on the Blue Jackets is going to fight Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy, it better be someone disposable, just in case it goes horribly wrong a la Matt Dumba.

Miguel Cabrera Nabs A Poor Sucker With A Very Easy Hidden Ball Trick Miguel Cabrera Nabs A Poor Sucker With A Very Easy Hidden Ball Trick

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera pulled off a neat bit of old-man trickery in today’s spring training game against the Twins. Minnesota’s Ehire Adrianza was on first and got lulled into a false sense of security from a lazy pickoff move, so Cabrera pretended to throw the ball back to the pitcher. But…

It Feels Like This Is It For Felix Hernandez It Feels Like This Is It For Felix Hernandez

For 10 straight years, Felix Hernandez has been the Seattle Mariners’ starter on Opening Day, making him one of only seven MLB pitchers to start a decade’s worth of season openers. Since debuting for the Mariners in 2005, Hernandez has become synonymous with Seattle baseball like Ichiro and Edgar Martinez, but in a…

Garrett Wilson Got DDT-ed Into The Ice And Picked Up A Nasty Gash Garrett Wilson Got DDT-ed Into The Ice And Picked Up A Nasty Gash

The surging Penguins beat the stumbling Blue Jackets 3-0 on Thursday, but it was not a bloodless victory. Little-used Pittsburgh winger Garrett Wilson—who’s scored one goal in 35 games this year—had a classic fourth-liner night all-around, injuring himself in a couple different ways despite only 4:40 minutes of ice…

Report: The Lakers Are Giving Up Report: The Lakers Are Giving Up

This has been an awfully shocking season for LeBron James and his Lakers, and it’s only getting worse, as L.A. currently sits 6.5 games out of the playoffs, having lost eight of their last ten. Still, this team hadn’t fully packed it in yet, or at least “sources” told Shams Charania on Wednesday that LeBron would keep…

The Pistons Are Really Trying To Make Me Fall For This Again The Pistons Are Really Trying To Make Me Fall For This Again

Remember when the Detroit Pistons waived Josh Smith in December of 2014, suddenly rattled off seven straight wins, and went 12-3 over the next 15 games? Then they finished the season in 12th place in the East.

Matthew Tkachuk Sparked A Big Ol' Scrum By Being Matthew Tkachuk Matthew Tkachuk Sparked A Big Ol' Scrum By Being Matthew Tkachuk

Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk, one of the most annoying dudes to play against in the NHL, picked up a ticky-tack goalie interference call that disallowed a goal in the first period of the Flames’ eventual 2-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Wednesday. So naturally, Tkachuk decided to go back out and try to do…

ESPN Zooms Way In On Adam Silver To Avoid Broadcasting Bill Simmons's Face ESPN Zooms Way In On Adam Silver To Avoid Broadcasting Bill Simmons's Face

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and The Ringer CEO Bill Simmons had a surely scintillating discussion at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference last weekend, where Silver said something mildly newsworthy and kind of bizarre about how players today are unhappy and anxious as “a direct product of social media.”

Micheal Ferland's Body Check Sent Marcus Johansson To The Hospital

Recent Boston Bruins pickup Marcus Johansson had to leave Tuesday night’s eventual 4-3 win against the Carolina Whalers with an upper body injury, after Micheal Ferland crunched him with a clean but brutal body check in the game’s opening minutes. Johansson would stay down on the ice for a brief time, and then exited…

Wake Forest Was A Mild Breeze Away From Upsetting Duke Wake Forest Was A Mild Breeze Away From Upsetting Duke

Wake Forest, a lowly 4-12 ACC squad that Kenpom said had a 99.6 percent chance of losing tonight, came achingly close to beating Duke on “Senior” night at Cameron. The Demon Deacons held with the Blue Devils all night, and even jumped out to a 10-point lead in the second half, but in the end the determination of R.J.…
