Report: The Chargers Have Fans??? In Tennessee???

Report: The Chargers Have Fans??? In Tennessee???

With 3:38 remaining in the first half, Philip Rivers connected with Melvin Gordon on a one-yard touchdown pass to complete a 14-play, 94-yard drive. None of what happened during that play was out of the ordinary—a top-tier quarterback scoring with a throw to a talented running back rarely is. But see if you can hear something at the end of this clip that sounds like something you’ve certainly...

Anthony Davis Let Me Measure You, Coward

So there’s this thing:

And this thing:

NBA player heights have been a matter of mild controversy and wild speculation for years. One thing everybody has just sort of generally understood, for a long time, is that the officially listed heights are a bunch of bullshit—that they’ve been subject to such stuff as “Kevin Durant not wanting to be seven feet tall, even though he is.” Now they are...

Let Me Explain This Hilarious Cycling Scandal To You

Let Me Explain This Hilarious Cycling Scandal To You

Let us now chronicle the rise and sort-of fall of British YouTuber and now-former national e-cycling champion Cameron Jeffers. Unfortunately, the nouns in this story do not become that much easier to understand as we proceed, but please bear with me.

The story begins in March, when Jeffers won the first-ever British virtual racing national championship. The race was broadcast on BT Sport, and...

Lions' No. 35 Unmasks Eagles' No. 26, Reveals Him To Be Miles Sanders

Lions' No. 35 Unmasks Eagles' No. 26, Reveals Him To Be Miles Sanders

None of us can ever know the true identities of those who play in the NFL. Shrouded in armor—with helmets covering most of their faces, and jerseys that reveal merely half of their true names—American football players work in the shadows, anonymous to all but their closest friends and family members.

But No. 35 for the Detroit Lions—the mysterious special teamer who goes only by...

NBA Considers Raising Fine For Tampering To Four Times The Fine For Being Donald Sterling

NBA Considers Raising Fine For Tampering To Four Times The Fine For Being Donald Sterling

Tampering is the gripe of the hour among NBA owners, which explains why the league’s board of governors will vote on new measures this coming Friday. “It’s pointless, at the end of the day, to have rules that we can’t enforce,” reads a quote by NBA commissioner Adam Silver in the middle of an ESPN story about a number of proposed rules that seem basically impossible to enforce. These...

Which Is Less Impossible: Scoring In An NBA Game, Getting A Hit In An MLB Game, Or Getting A First Down In An NFL Game?

Which Is Less Impossible: Scoring In An NBA Game, Getting A Hit In An MLB Game, Or Getting A First Down In An NFL Game?

As often happens when you work with highly opinionated idiots, the Deadspin staff got into a lengthy argument yesterday over, what else, a Twitter question:

It was stupid, it went on for too long, everybody was wrong, and we had several members of each group hunkering down for the Slack fight to end all Slack fights. In the end, with no unanimous consensus among our writers and editors, Luis...

As A Formerly Decent Middle School Athlete, I Can Relate To This 13-Year-Old Who Won The European Diving Championships

As A Formerly Decent Middle School Athlete, I Can Relate To This 13-Year-Old Who Won The European Diving Championships

This week in Ukrainian diving news: 13-year-old diving prodigy Oleksii Sereda has captured gold in the 10-meter European Diving Championships in Kiev, a historic feat I would definitely be significantly more impressed with if I too had not enjoyed athletic success as a 13-year-old. Sereda finished fourth at the world championships in July, which is the same place that the Sutter Miners Eighth...

Here Are Some Other Potential Locations For MLB Games

On Thursday, the Yankees, White Sox, and MLB announced a partnership to play a regular-season game next year at—or, more precisely, near—the iconic Field of Dreams. This follows the recent trend of the league scheduling meaningful games in non-traditional places like Japan, Mexico, and London .

This celebration of the 31-year anniversary of Kevin Costner’s saccharine baseball epic got us...

According to a report from the New York Times, soccer federation and bribe repository FIFA is considering moving away from its longtime headquarters in Switzerland and setting up shop elsewhere.

Baseball Players, Listen To Me: Stop Wearing Shirts Under Vest Jerseys

Attention all baseball men! Have you been outside? It is thousands of degrees outside and somehow even more humid. Terrible! It is almost August. And so I say to you: it is time to stop wearing these ridiculous t-shirts under your jerseys.

There are only two (2) Major League Baseball teams with a vest jersey in their rotation currently. The Colorado Rockies have a black vest that they wear...

Most Exciting Incidental Things To Happen At A Sporting Event, Ranked

Most Exciting Incidental Things To Happen At A Sporting Event, Ranked

I went with my family to a collegiate summer league baseball game last week, because tickets were cheap and because we needed a decent excuse to leave the house. If you’ve ever been to a summer league game—or to a much bigger professional sporting event—you know that there are things that occur within the stadium that are only interesting to the people IN the stadium. Anyone at home can watch...

Let The Alligator Throw The First Pitch

Let The Alligator Throw The First Pitch

Chance the Snapper—a Chicago alligator who gained fame last week when he was first noticed living in the Humboldt Park lagoon—was taken into custody Tuesday morning by reptile expert Frank Robb, who was hired specifically to grab the creature. Before he was apprehended, the 5-foot-3 Chance captured the attention of Chicagoans—who descended on the lagoon to catch a glimpse—as well as the...

Hair-Pulling Considered Rude In Every Sport But Football

Hair-Pulling Considered Rude In Every Sport But Football

In the midst of play a few weeks ago, WNBA player Liz Cambage’s arm got all wrapped up in her opponent Kalani Brown’s hair. At first the tangle seemed to be an accident, but soon there was pushing and shoving and intentional hair-pulling, and Cambage walked away from the encounter with a flagrant foul.

Anyone who has ever had long hair (or a very determined younger sister) knows that...

Does Jared Dudley Control The Defense With His Communication And Tell His PGs What Plays To Run By Seeing The Flow Of The Game And Who Needs Shots? Is There A Reason Why He's Always Atop The Plus-Minus Of His Team, Is It The Little Things, Screen To Get Guys Open Boxing Out, If I Only Knew?

Jared Dudley was a solid pickup for the Lakers in free agency, but I had some questions lingering in my mind. Just the other day, in fact, I was folding some laundry and wondering whether he’s capable of controlling a defense with communication, telling a point guard what plays to run by seeing the flow of the game and who needs the shots, doing the little things, screening to get guys open...

I Went To SoHo To Find Kevin Durant And All I Found Was A Bunch Of Clothes I Can't Afford

I Went To SoHo To Find Kevin Durant And All I Found Was A Bunch Of Clothes I Can't Afford

Where in the world in Kevin Durant headed? is one of the most interesting questions in the NBA right now. Where in the world is Kevin Durant currently? is a much less compelling cousin of that question, but one we are somewhat better equipped to answer. Assuming that older brother Tony is posting his photos in a timely fashion, the Durants were this week walking around Manhattan’s SoHo...

Grand Junction Humpback Chubs Game Postponed, Which Means The Grand Junction Humpback Chubs Will Play A Double-Header Today

The Grand Junction Humpback Chubs, a minor-league baseball team associated with the Colorado Rockies, had their game against the Ogden Raptors canceled last night due to an “outfield surface issue.” This was bad news for local Chubs fans who had purchased tickets to the game. Not only were they denied a chance to watch their Chubs play, but to receive a free wine glass.

It’s been a rough time for Celtics fans —their team disappointed last season, then failed to swing a long-anticipated blockbuster trade for Anthony Davis, and now it...

Kawhi Said "Fuck" [Update]

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told a story ahead of Monday night’s potential series-clincher Game 5, one that demonstrates the confidence and competitive spirit of basketball robot and Finals MVP frontrunner Kawhi Leonard. Shockingly, it has to do with Kawhi Leonard saying something aloud. Even more shockingly, when Kawhi allegedly said these words aloud, he said them without someone...

Welcome To The Jason La Canfora USMNT U-20 Minute

The Jason La Canfora Orioles Minute was an irregularly recurring feature in which we checked in with the NFL reporter’s thoughts on the O’s. Then we stopped, mostly because he did. Now he tweets about soccer, so welcome to the Jason La Canfora USMNT U-20 Minute.

The U.S. team made a thrilling run in the Under-20 World Cup, but fell 2-1 to Ecuador in the quarterfinals.

This has been the Jason...
