Conor McGregor Sucker-Punches Old Man After Whiskey Argument In Dublin Pub

Conor McGregor still hasn’t decided on his next fight, but in the meantime he’s won an exhibition bout against an old guy who was just trying to have a pint.

TMZ has acquired surveillance footage from April 6 at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin, when McGregor showed up to buy patrons a round of his own whiskey. When the MMA fighter set an empty glass in front of the victim, he pushed it away. The...

Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Prompted by The Ringer’s unionization, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, whose site uses the tagline “By the common man, for the common man,” has spent a lot of his time yesterday and today coming out as a big anti-union guy. This was a predictable shtick from the guy who sold MAGA hats and yuks it up with Tucker Carlson, but what was actually disheartening was the sight of his employees...

Curt Schilling Once Again Threatens To Run For Office

Curt Schilling Once Again Threatens To Run For Office

Curt Schilling, former major-league pitcher and World Series hero who squandered away so much goodwill that the Red Sox no longer want anything to do with him, has for the umpteenth time floated the idea of running for office. What makes this time different is that Donald Trump gave him a signal boost.

Schilling has repeatedly threatened to run for Senate in Massachusetts, and in 2016...

Jim Breuer And Barstool Sports Chuckleheads Yuk It Up Over Racist Joke About Mets Pitchers

Jim Breuer And Barstool Sports Chuckleheads Yuk It Up Over Racist Joke About Mets Pitchers

How about those freakin’ Mets, eh? Their relievers stink! They’re bums! Those guys are probably losing games on purpose because of the damn Mexican drug cartel!

Hm, my delivery’s not coming through on this one. Maybe it’ll land better if Jim Breuer, actor and Mets fan, tells the joke with an accent on a Barstool Sports radio show as two white guys laugh like it’s the funniest thing they’ve...

Lucas Giolito's Wife Calls Out Anthony Swarzak's Wife For Being Ignorant Toward Tim Anderson's Wife

Lucas Giolito's Wife Calls Out Anthony Swarzak's Wife For Being Ignorant Toward Tim Anderson's Wife

Bria Anderson, wife of White Sox shortstop Tim, had a heated Instagram discussion with Elizabeth Swarzak, wife of Braves reliever Anthony, about gun violence and race, the impetus being last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton . Swarzak, whose IG account is now protected, came off sounding very dumb.

Swarzak resorts to bringing up gun violence in Chicago despite heavy gun control (

Uh Oh: This Meaningless NBA Ranking Has Kobe Bryant Fans, The Biggest Losers In The World, Up In Arms

Uh Oh: This Meaningless NBA Ranking Has Kobe Bryant Fans, The Biggest Losers In The World, Up In Arms

In an effort to fill space in the period of the year when nothing’s going on in the world of basketball, NBA.com released its All-Decade teams for the 2010s era. Kobe Bryant was placed on the third All-Decade team, and this caused Kobe Bryant fans, possibly the most wretched group of people affiliated with anything related to pro basketball—excluding the Knicks—to get a little grumpy over...

Jets Rookie Quinnen Williams: "I'mma Go Play With Myself Today ... That Came Out Weird"

Jets Rookie Quinnen Williams: "I'mma Go Play With Myself Today ... That Came Out Weird"

While Quinnen Williams was still a player at Alabama last December, he had a funny moment on press row where he overrode his impulse to say something interesting about his team’s Orange Bowl opponent, then-Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray. Now with the New York Jets, Williams is still struggling with his sound bites.

This past weekend, the defensive lineman was asked about his rating in Madden....

MLB Suspends Four Pirates, Three Reds, One Guy Who's Now On A Different Team For Brawl

MLB has announced the fallout for Tuesday night’s brawl during Pirates-Reds: Six players and both managers have been suspended. Pittsburgh relief pitcher Keone Kela “won” with the longest punishment at 10 games, but all the players are appealing theirs.

Here’s the league’s breakdown, along with reasons for each case. Three Pirates and two Reds were suspended, but new Cleveland Indian Yasiel...

Code Red: Jon Gruden Says Nathan Peterman "Is Growing On Me"

Code Red: Jon Gruden Says Nathan Peterman "Is Growing On Me"

When Nathan Peterman finished his tour of pain with the Buffalo Bills last November, he wasn’t sent to football prison, even though that clearly would’ve been the right decision. Peterman earned a second chance with the only team that would make sense for him to give him one. (“Sense” is used lightly here.) Raiders head coach Jon Gruden was eager to find something good in the worst QB of...

Numbers Defeat Florida State In Out-Of-Conference Matchup

Numbers Defeat Florida State In Out-Of-Conference Matchup

What the fresh hell’s going on here?

There are four days until “Noles football” starts, but because some dingus put a player in a No. 15 jersey next to the actual number, it seems that the season won’t actually kick off for 154 days, which is December 30. Or is it 15 multiplied by 4, and the jersey is acting as parentheses? You know how college football algebra can get. Presumably the tweet is...

Jimmy Pitaro Says The Research Shows Viewers Like ESPN Best When It's A Bland Paste

Jimmy Pitaro Says The Research Shows Viewers Like ESPN Best When It's A Bland Paste

ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro’s purpose has been clear from the start —he is the massager of the balls , there to soothe the company’s corporate interests, the reactionary to predecessor John Skipper . But with employee Dan Le Batard’s honest and true radio rant two weeks ago about how a “stick to sports” philosophy is “cowardly,” Pitaro’s had to defend his strategy. To do so, he resorted to...

Jennifer Lopez Surprised Alex Rodriguez With A Birthday Cake, But He Didn't Eat It

Alex Rodriguez was in his usual spot in the Sunday Night Baseball booth for Yankees-Red Sox when he was surprised by fiancée Jennifer Lopez and his two daughters. Saturday was his 44th birthday, and they had brought him a cake. The baked good itself was ... understated.

Perhaps A-Rod had been all caked out from earlier in the weekend. During her concert on Friday, J-Lo had brought out a...

Your Football Team Has All The Pieces To Make A Run This Year

NFL training camps are underway, and it’s hard not to get excited already. Your favorite team has shown some energy right out of the gate. The roster is full of talent, the depth is there, and there are no weak spots to be found. This might be the season.

That first day of camp started off strong, eh? The QB had some zip on his throws and looked totally healthy—he got banged up last season,...

Swimming Controversy Lasts About A Day Before Lilly King Says She Deserved To Be Disqualified

Swimming Controversy Lasts About A Day Before Lilly King Says She Deserved To Be Disqualified

Olympic gold medalist Lilly King was tossed from her preliminary heat at the 2019 FINA World Championships when the organization ruled that she performed a non-simultaneous touch on her first turn—that is, she didn’t touch both hands on the wall at the same time. Although the ruling denied her a chance to medal in the 200-meter breaststroke, and although USA Swimming appealed (and lost), King...

Bison Gets Irritated By Tourists, Tosses Child Into Oblivion

Bison Gets Irritated By Tourists, Tosses Child Into Oblivion

Look, if you’re going to hunt bison to the brink of extinction, you can’t be surprised when one of them takes an opportunity for revenge. The creature would’ve garnered more sympathy if it had picked on one of the larger tourists, though.

A 9-year-old from Florida was singled out and flung into the air by a charging bison bull at Yellowstone National Park on Monday. The NPS report, which...

Phil Kessel's Pittsburgh House Is For Sale, And It Has The Loneliest Home Theater In The World

Phil Kessel's Pittsburgh House Is For Sale, And It Has The Loneliest Home Theater In The World

Former Penguins winger Phil Kessel was traded to the Coyotes earlier this summer, which means that he’s put his Pittsburgh-area house on the market. For a mere $2.1 million, you can enjoy any film you’d like in the cavernous solitude of this home theater. Now that’s luxury.

Some photos in the Realtor.com listing show rooms which are still furnished, while others are bare, so it’s unclear if...
