The Most Thrilling Drama In The NBA Tonight Is Gregg Popovich And Kawhi Leonard Possibly Having A Meeting The Most Thrilling Drama In The NBA Tonight Is Gregg Popovich And Kawhi Leonard Possibly Having A Meeting

The Kawhi Leonard trade saga has so far been short on specific news about the possibly still-injured Spurs forward’s future home, though the Lakers are supposedly the California native’s preferred destination. But it’s getting long on ridiculously specific media reports, which is really what’s necessary in the NBA…

On his walk back to the dugout after blowing his team’s lead, Strickland exchanged words with Giant-killing Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson after Brinson both tagged Strickland for a game-tying…

In an obvious, inevitable move, the Ottawa Senators dumped longtime forward Mike Hoffman this morning in a trade to the San Jose Sharks.

Cocky Millennial Busted By Bartolo Colon's Pick-Off Move

The Royals’ Whit Merrifield has 15 stolen bases on the year, and Rangers pitcher Bartolo Colon had yet to pick off a baserunner this season heading into tonight. In this case, one would think that the 29-year-old on first base would have the clear advantage over the 45-year-old on the mound. But that’s the problem…

Oh Cool, We're Doing The "Puto" Controversy Again Oh Cool, We're Doing The "Puto" Controversy Again

Mexico supporters pulled out the “Ehhhh.....Puto!” chant once again in their 1-0 World Cup win over Germany on Sunday, with the homophobic slur audible on the TV broadcast during Manuel Neuer’s goal kicks. The chant is potentially going to earn the Mexican federation another fine from FIFA, which is investigating the…

MLB On Ejection Video Scrubbing: Our Ass Would Be In The Jackpot If We Didn't MLB On Ejection Video Scrubbing: Our Ass Would Be In The Jackpot If We Didn't

It’s only been a few days since MLB umpire Tom Hallion introduced the phrase “our ass is in the jackpot” in a leaked video that contained full audio of a 2016 Terry Collins ejection. While we’re still no closer to understanding why Hallion used the word “jackpot” instead of something more normal like, “Our ass is on…

This Might Be Belgium's Last Chance, So They Better Not Fuck It Up This Might Be Belgium's Last Chance, So They Better Not Fuck It Up

The word “underachievers” will haunt this Belgium group for the rest of their lives unless they seriously impress at this World Cup. Even just a glance at their roster should strike fear into most opponents’ hearts, but in practice, this dream team has yet to really gel, playing much more like a loose collection of…

Costa Rica Will Try Their Best To Relive The Glory Of The Last World Cup Costa Rica Will Try Their Best To Relive The Glory Of The Last World Cup

The undisputed second-best team in CONCACAF isn’t flying under the radar anymore, not after a 2014 World Cup appearance that saw Costa Rica win a deadly group that included Uruguay, Italy, and England, then make a quarter-final run that was only stopped by a penalty shootout loss to the Netherlands. Almost all the…

Iceland Are Still Underdogs, But They Can't Be Counted Out Iceland Are Still Underdogs, But They Can't Be Counted Out

No nation as small as Iceland (population: 337,479) has ever qualified for the World Cup before, but simply getting to Russia won’t be satisfying enough for this team. After a couple of miraculous wins in Euro 2016 that put Icelandic soccer on the map, this Scandinavian group will be forced to experience outsized…

Peru Just Might Have Enough To Make This Their Lucky Year Peru Just Might Have Enough To Make This Their Lucky Year

This is the first World Cup since 1982 for Peru, but that doesn’t mean they’re here just to play three games and go home.

Kevin Durant Won The NBA Finals Tonight Kevin Durant Won The NBA Finals Tonight

Even if everyone already knew the Warriors were eventually going to win the NBA Finals regardless of what happened tonight, Game 3 was actually pretty fun.

Chowdahead On The Field At Fenway Park Gets Blindsided By Security In The Outfield Chowdahead On The Field At Fenway Park Gets Blindsided By Security In The Outfield

An idiot on the field at Fenway Park during tonight’s Tigers-Red Sox game made it all the way to center field in his mad dash to ... well, I don’t know exactly. Whatever he was looking for, I don’t think it was a security guard takedown as bone-shaking as this one:
