It Only Took Four Bears To Make Jared Goff Look Like A Chump It Only Took Four Bears To Make Jared Goff Look Like A Chump

Jared Goff had maybe the worst game of his career on Sunday night against the Bears, putting up just 180 passing yards on 44 attempts and tossing three non–Hail Mary interceptions and zero touchdowns in L.A.’s 15-6 loss. For a Rams team that had scored at least 29 points in each of its past six games, including 54…

Really? These Fuckin' Guys? Really? These Fuckin' Guys?

Relief pitcher Lee Smith and right fielder/DH Harold Baines were both elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday night by the Today’s Game Era Committee. Its voters gave Smith its unanimous approval, while Baines just hit the 75 percent threshold with 12 out of 16 votes. (Lou Piniella fell just one vote short.)…

Elias Pettersson Made Another Sick-Ass Play

Nashville Predators netminder Pekka Rinne may be the best goaltender in the NHL. Last season, he led the league in goals saved above average, and so far this year, his goals against average is tops in the league at 1.96, with a .931 save percentage to boot. Rinne is incredible at his job, in short, but when he’s…

The Diamondbacks Dealt Paul Goldschmidt For Peanuts The Diamondbacks Dealt Paul Goldschmidt For Peanuts

The St. Louis Cardinals became a much more fun team yesterday, and they barely gave up anything to pull it off. On Wednesday, baseball’s most uptight franchise sent three fairly irrelevant players to the Arizona Diamondbacks, who in return gave them big-time slugging first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who was…

Zion Williamson Is Human

Zion Williamson had 18 and 12 and Duke won 84-54 on Wednesday night—which would have been impressive if they hadn’t been playing the Hartford Hawks (apparently a real college basketball team and not, like, a D-League franchise). As per usual, there were powerful, highlight-reel dunks from the Blue Devils’ mighty…

Ryan Reaves Injured Tom Wilson On A Blindside Hit

In a rare departure from routine, Capitals enforcer Tom Wilson was on the receiving end of multiple crushing hits from one of the few NHL players who can claim to be as bruising as he is—Golden Knights winger Ryan Reaves. Reaves went after Wilson on multiple occasions in Vegas’s 5-3 victory, eventually getting both…

White Sox Attempt To Impress Bryce Harper By Introducing Him To Cleveland Indians Legend Jim Thome White Sox Attempt To Impress Bryce Harper By Introducing Him To Cleveland Indians Legend Jim Thome

The offseason recruitment of marquee free agent Bryce Harper by the handful of MLB teams that are actually trying to be good has begun in earnest, and Jeff Passan has a report detailing a few teams’ strategies for enticing the 26-year-old former MVP. It’s going to take a shitload of money to sign Harper, to be sure,…

The NHL Is Coming To Seattle The NHL Is Coming To Seattle

Following a unanimous vote from the league’s board of governors on Tuesday morning, the NHL has approved an expansion franchise for the city of Seattle, set to play in a renovated KeyArena. According to TSN, the team will begin play in the 2021-22 season.

Thanks for your continued support of Deadspin. Good night.

The Mariners Have Pulled The Plug The Mariners Have Pulled The Plug

After a couple of trades in the past 24 hours or so, the Seattle Mariners officially suck again, and they don’t even have fond memories of recent playoff runs to keep them warm over what promises to be several years worth of rebuilding. A run of aggressive, win-now spending—or, anyway, intermittent blips of…

Fred Hoiberg's Disappointing, Forgettable Time With The Bulls Has Come To An End Fred Hoiberg's Disappointing, Forgettable Time With The Bulls Has Come To An End

The Chicago Bulls have fired head coach Fred Hoiberg today, after three full seasons, one playoff series, and a 5-19 start to the 2018-19 campaign. Yes, he was still there.

The NCAA Will Never Give UCF A Chance The NCAA Will Never Give UCF A Chance

The College Football Playoff bracket was set yesterday—pitting Alabama against Oklahoma and Clemson against Notre Dame—and for the second year in a row, the undefeated UCF Knights are nowhere to be found. Just as they had to settle for the Peach Bowl against Auburn last season, UCF will play LSU, another three-loss…

William Nylander And The Leafs Have 26 Hours To Figure This Out [Update] William Nylander And The Leafs Have 26 Hours To Figure This Out [Update]

The Toronto Maple Leafs, with the newly acquired John Tavares leading the way, are enjoying a strong start to the 2018–19 season. With 36 points from 26 games and the best goal differential in hockey (+26), a team that lost a hard-fought seven-game first-round playoff series to the Bruins last spring now looks to be a…

Johnny Boychuk Returned A Lost Tooth And Got Absolutely No Thanks For It

At the end of the second period of a tense, tied Islanders-Bruins game that Boston eventually won in a shootout, New York defenseman Johnny Boychuk made a selfless and nice gesture by picking up his old teammate David Krejci’s tooth when it fell to the ice. And in return, the ungrateful Bruins just called him “weird”…

Iggy Brazdeikis Is God's Honest Truth Iggy Brazdeikis Is God's Honest Truth

Wednesday night’s game between North Carolina and Michigan featured two of the most hyped freshmen of this college basketball season, and both of them played for the Tar Heels. There was UNC’s starting point guard Coby White, a five-star from the state with great hair who has come into a Top-15 program and…

The Slow Dismantling Of The Cavs Marches On The Slow Dismantling Of The Cavs Marches On

While everyone was waiting on the Cavaliers to trade old-ass sharpshooter J.R. Smith, a different old-ass Cleveland sharpshooter was instead told to ship out, as Woj is reporting that the Cavs have traded Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz:

Thanks for your continued support of Deadspin. The new 1975 album is great.

I Can't Stop Watching This Video Of Purdue Wrecking Its Fancy Clock Face

Before we begin: Yes, those appear to be two actual human workers on a cherry picker getting clocked by this falling clock face at Purdue University, but according to the clock contractors, nobody was injured. So please enjoy this mini-disaster with the sound cranked loud and your conscience clear:

The Sabres Are The Hottest And Most Stressful Team In The NHL The Sabres Are The Hottest And Most Stressful Team In The NHL

The Buffalo Sabres—yeah, the Sabres, worst team in the league last season—just keep on winning, and they did it again Tuesday night. After a scoreless opening half hour, the Sabres got out to a 2-0 lead against the Sharks at home with a couple of slick scores. But in the final 10 minutes of the third, Buffalo suddenly…
