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

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...

Here Are Some Potential Locations For FIFA's New Headquarters

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. The Times speculates that potential host countries could potentially engage in an Amazon-style competition of who can most thoroughly debase themselves for the rights to host Gianni “John Baby”...

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

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?

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

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.

Is This Kyrie Irving Scolding Celtics Fans Under An Alias On Boston Talk Radio?

Thursday morning a man going by the name of Mikey in Waltham called in to the Zolak & Bertrand radio show on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston to participate in a wide-ranging conversation about the state of the Boston Celtics. 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]

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

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...

Help Me Figure Out Which Team Scored 11 Runs In One Inning In Marlins-Brewers

Help Me Figure Out Which Team Scored 11 Runs In One Inning In Marlins-Brewers

The Miami Marlins opened a series against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night, in Milwaukee. The Brewers come into the series sitting atop the NL Central; the last-place, aggressively “rebuilding” Marlins come into the series having scored the fewest total runs in baseball and 35 fewer runs than the next worst offense in the National League. And so it should not surprise you too much to learn...

Prayers Up For The Pirates' Tarp Man

Prayers Up For The Pirates' Tarp Man

As the Pirates’ grounds crew struggled to spread the tarp on the field in inclement weather Tuesday night, one man was nearly consumed by the polyethylene menace before Andrew McCutchen and Sean Rodriguez came to help. Before today’s game, someone created a respectful memorial for Tarp Man.

He died doing what he loved: putting a tarp on a field.

The Aliens Are Not Real, And Also They're Total Cowards

Maybe you have seen the news that ... well, what, exactly? Near as I can tell the “news” is that lots and lots of Navy pilots have seen UFOs, but that somehow none of them have recorded anything but grainy, indistinct, Classic Arts Showcase–ass video of blurry dots which we’re meant to believe are traveling very fast and/or making extreme flight maneuvers at speeds that ought to be...

How The Hell Did Rudy Giuliani Select This Obscure Atlanta Hawks GIF?

How The Hell Did Rudy Giuliani Select This Obscure Atlanta Hawks GIF?

Rudy Giuliani, a poorly preserved bog corpse, burped up a response of some kind to a video that was disrespectful to Nancy Pelosi.

That’s the only sentence I want to waste on the words Giuliani chose to hunt-and-peck with the base of his thumb this morning. Let’s instead focus on the extremely obscure GIF of the Atlanta Hawks’ bench celebrating a Trae Young-John Collins alley-oop this past...

Counterpoint: A Little Scuffle Only Means The Sharks Are Ready To Shock The World

Counterpoint: A Little Scuffle Only Means The Sharks Are Ready To Shock The World

I have been a lifelong Sharks fan for at least two weeks, and if there’s anything my hours of fandom have taught me it’s this: Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky is wrong to underestimate the mighty Sharks .

Yes, a sea of troubles stands between my allegedly beloved, cartilaginous hockey dudes and the first Stanley Cup of the Joe Thornton era (or any other era). Tomas Hertl and Erik Karlsson are both...

It Is Time For The Steph Curry Seth Curry Power Rankings

Three games into the Western Conference Finals, it’s time to update the Steph Curry Seth Curry Power Rankings. Things are getting awfully tense as the Currys play hard against each other. Their mom Sonya Curry even skipped her pregame cocktail because of the stress of watching them compete. Talk about a relatable experience watching this exciting series!

The Warriors took Game 3 on the road,...
