James Harrison Has An Unconventional Solution For Le'Veon Bell: Fake Injuries James Harrison Has An Unconventional Solution For Le'Veon Bell: Fake Injuries

James Harrison, the Steelers all-time sack leader, went on Second Take Tuesday, to talk football and the ongoing Le’Veon Bell situation with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe. Harrison was reliably anti-authority and pro-players looking out for their money during his playing days, and here he was firmly on Team Bell,…

Max Scherzer Just Keeps Making History Max Scherzer Just Keeps Making History

Max Scherzer struck out 10 Marlins over seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday night to earn his 18th win of the season. The 10 strikeouts brought Scherzer to an even 300 on the season, the highest season total of Scherzer’s prolific career and just the 36th 300-strikeout season in the majors since 1901.

UFC welterweight Abdul Razak Alhassan was indicted Monday in Tarrant County, Texas, for charges related to the alleged rape of two women in one night in March 2018.

Jake Faria Averts Disaster With Miraculous Catch Of 109-MPH Aaron Judge Comebacker

Comebackers are some of the scariest events in sports. A comebacker fractured Juan Nicasio’s skull and broke his neck in 2011; a comebacker broke Mike Mussina’s nose in 1998 and for a while poisoned him with the fear that every pitch was going to come rocketing back at his face; last season a Joe Mauer comebacker…

Thibs Is Still Working On Jimmy Butler Thibs Is Still Working On Jimmy Butler

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is turning up the heat on Scott Layden and Tom Thibodeau to move quickly on a deal to move a disgruntled Jimmy Butler out of town. But that doesn’t mean Thibodeau is ready to abandon the zombie Bulls project just yet—according to Woj, Thibs is staying after Butler while he’s still got…

Ryan Fitzpatrick Is Finally Ryan Fitzpatricking Ryan Fitzpatrick Is Finally Ryan Fitzpatricking

Oh boy. Last weekend Ryan Fitzpatrick was strutting around like a Times Square Conor McGregor impersonator, looking very secure as Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback after consecutive 400-yard performances. It’s now halftime of his team’s Monday Night Football matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Fitzpatrick is…

Vance McDonald Buries Chris Conte With Devastating Stiff-Arm

The longest walk back to the sideline of Chris Conte’s life had to come after this 75-yard Vance McDonald touchdown catch-and-run. Bring in the Eternal Sunshine machine to wipe this moment out of Conte’s memory forever:

Seattle Somehow Reaches New Arena Deal Without Horribly Screwing Generations Of Taxpayers  Seattle Somehow Reaches New Arena Deal Without Horribly Screwing Generations Of Taxpayers 

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve a plan to let a group of private investors build a new stadium on the site of the current home of the Seattle Storm and the former home of the Seattle Supersonics, as part of a push to land an expansion NHL franchise later this year.

Add "Not Getting Ejected" To List Of Bryce Harper's Missed Goals For 2018 Add "Not Getting Ejected" To List Of Bryce Harper's Missed Goals For 2018

It’s been a shit year for Bryce Harper, measured against expectations, and even aside from the Nationals being an even bigger disappointment than usual. He came on in the second half, but he’s still gonna finish the year batting around or below .250, and with a growing reputation as a guy who can be neutralized by the…

Browns ... Win? Browns ... Win?

Well that was exhilarating. Baker Mayfield came into Thursday night’s game with the Browns down 14–0 and their offense doing just nothing, and he played a brilliant half of football to bring his team back, and the Browns secured their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.

Baker Mayfield Is Playing Like He's Not A Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield Is Playing Like He's Not A Browns Quarterback

Tyrod Taylor was pulled late in the second quarter and ruled out for the second half after suffering a concussion against the Jets Thursday night. He was having a shitty game, completing just four of 14 passes for 19 yards, and leading the Browns to just four first downs and zero points. Taylor being unavailable could…

Browns Fan Saves Possum From Having To Watch The Rest Of Thursday Night Football Browns Fan Saves Possum From Having To Watch The Rest Of Thursday Night Football

A poor, foolish possum somehow made its way into the stands at Thursday night’s Jets-Browns game, in Cleveland. Maybe he’s a big Baker Mayfield fan! It’s unlikely the little fellow had a valid ticket—as such, he was captured and put into a box by a jersey-clad gentleman who seems really admirably comfortable handling…

Angels' Francisco Arcia Makes Baseball History In Demoralizing Ass-Whupping Angels' Francisco Arcia Makes Baseball History In Demoralizing Ass-Whupping

History was made in Thursday afternoon’s Angels-Athletics game. Surprisingly, it was not made by the Athletics, who beat the absolute shit out of the Angels by the football score of 21–3. No, it was made by Francisco Arcia of the Angels, who became the first MLB player ever to pitch, catch, and smoke a dong in the…

Isaiah Crowell Has A Special Gift For Browns Fans

Former Brown Isaiah Crowell scored a couple touchdowns in the first half of Thursday night’s Jets-Browns game. On the second of these Crowell used his touchdown celebration to do something very rude to the football, before throwing it into the end zone stands, to be caught by Browns fans:

Conor McGregor Hypes Whiskey, Talks Wild Shit In Suitably Batshit Press Conference

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov sat for a press conference Thursday afternoon, a little more than two weeks ahead of their October 6 showdown at UFC 229. You will be pleased to learn that settling in for this nearly hour-long video is very much worth your time, as an enjoyer of absurdity and shamelessness (jump…

Timberwolves Drama Turns Into Spicy Internet Beef Somehow Featuring Stephen Jackson Timberwolves Drama Turns Into Spicy Internet Beef Somehow Featuring Stephen Jackson

You’re going to have to put a little effort into keeping up, here, because it involves multiple different social media platforms, and I am getting too old for this shit.

Beefiest Chum Luke Voit Has To Do Something With All That Surplus Power

The one-armed bench press seems like a fine strength training exercise, although probably there are better ways of doing it than with a full barbell smashing off your chest. At any rate, if you were going to pick a baseball player to show up in a video doing one-armed 135-pound bench presses with a full barbell, you’d…
