In A Twist, Bengals Player Embarrassed By Fan's Crime

In A Twist, Bengals Player Embarrassed By Fan's Crime

Police in Florence, Kentucky, are searching for a man allegedly stole a case of beer from a store. At the time, he was barefoot and wore a Bengals jersey, so be on the lookout for a guy who really hates shoes and loudly talks about how happy he is that Marvin Lewis is gone.

As for the jersey, there are a few options. Rudi Johnson wore No. 32 for the Bengals, as did Jeremy Hill and Cedric...

Pete Alonso's Charming "English Muffin" Quote, Like Most Precious Things In Life, Was A Sham

Pete Alonso's Charming "English Muffin" Quote, Like Most Precious Things In Life, Was A Sham

Before Mets slugger Pete Alonso participated in the Home Run Derby during the all-star break, he earned a little moment with this seemingly off-the-cuff quip: “It doesn’t matter how much jelly you have in the jar, it’s about how you spread it on your English muffin.” That’s funny. Well, guess what? That shit came from one of Jimmy Fallon’s writers!

For about a week now, I thought Alonso was a...

Children's Birthday Party Gets Much Cooler After New Jersey Devils' Mascot Runs Through Glass Window

Children's Birthday Party Gets Much Cooler After New Jersey Devils' Mascot Runs Through Glass Window

When you’re a child, it’s surely cool to have the New Jersey Devils’ mascot show up to your birthday shindig, but what’s much more impressive is when NJ Devil gets overwhelmed by the play parachute, starts running around, and shatters a glass window. How many kids get to say that happened at their party?

Come for the utter silence once NJ Devil makes a boo-boo, but stay for one mom’s scathing...

Olympic Champion Swimmer Uses Dogsitter, Comes Home To Find Two Shirtless Guys On Couch With Lube And Camera 

Former Olympic swimmer and two-time gold medalist Klete Keller used the app Wag to find a dogsitter, and very much regretted it when he came home to find two shirtless men on his couch with “personal lubricant” and a camera.

Keller spoke with Colorado Springs–based Fox 21 News and described the scene when he arrived home. His house stunk; there were the aforementioned shirtless guys; there...

Former NFL Linebacker's Solution For The Struggling Eagles: Hump Less

Former NFL Linebacker's Solution For The Struggling Eagles: Hump Less

The Eagles are 2-3, but fortunately for them, their division sucks. Former NFL linebacker and Philly news anchor Garry Cobb has a suggestion to get the team back on track: Don’t let the players fuck.

As the Fox 29 crew discussed the Eagles’ slump on Monday, Cobb proposed that the team go to “drastic measures.” “I think they need to go on a fast,” he said. “Not food fast.” He means ... sex??

Two NFL Offensive Linemen Working Together Still Cannot Block Aaron Donald

Two NFL Offensive Linemen Working Together Still Cannot Block Aaron Donald
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

Trying to stop Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald with one blocker has the same effect as trying to stop a bowling ball with a piece of tissue paper. Using two offensive linemen doesn’t seem to be doing the trick, either.

At a crucial moment in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s Rams-Lions game, Donald took on Detroit...

Australian Rules Footballer Receives Nasty Comments, Then Support, Over Photo Of Her Kicking

Australian rules football is dealing with quite the kerfuffle this week after a network gave in to the creeps who left nasty comments on a photo of Carlton footballer Tayla Harris as she kicked a goal in Sunday’s match against the Western Bulldogs.

Here’s a sampling of what those comments looked like. For context, Hannah Mouncey is an Australian handball player who is trans:

Max Kepler Kept Calling Trevor Bauer's Bluff

Max Kepler Kept Calling Trevor Bauer's Bluff

Twins outfielder Max Kepler was fantastic in Thursday’s 5-4 win over Cleveland as he went 4-for-4 with three home runs and a walk. There are two ways to look at this performance, and they’re not mutually exclusive. You could say that Kepler had a hell of a night, and you could say that opposing pitcher Trevor Bauer was insistent on serving up meatballs like he worked at a trattoria.

Kepler,...

Over at the Atlantic, Adam Serwer wrote about how the character of heavyweight champion Apollo Creed was treated as a stand-in so audiences could receive the fantasy of Muhammad Ali getting whooped, and how Creed changed that. Use it as an excuse to watch Eddie Murphy’s bit on Rocky. [The Atlantic]

Jets defensive back Jamal Adams had a little fun—or thought he was having a little fun—by delivering the boom on his division rival’s mascot Pat Patriot at the Pro Bowl festivities Wednesday. It was a solid hit, and the person in the suit played it off like everything was okay.

Although Pat Patriot seemed fine in the...

Joey Votto Treats Heckler With The Appropriate Level Of Respect

Joey Votto Treats Heckler With The Appropriate Level Of Respect

By now, hecklers should know better than to mess with Reds first baseman Joey Votto. There are enough documented instances of him clowning opposing fans (and Cincinnati’s own) that the best strategy is to just let him be. One Angels fan at Tuesday night’s game chose not to do that, and although it’s unclear what the person said to get Votto to respond, his reply came through loud and...

The Mets Did It Again

The Mets Did It Again

Oh brother, what are those freaking Mets up to this time?

In Monday’s game against the Giants, with two outs in the top of the 13th and runners on the corners, Mets pitcher Tyler Bashlor induced what looked to be a catchable pop fly. Not for these morons! Left fielder Dominic Smith and shortstop Amed Rosario ran into each other, allowing the Giants’ Andrew McCutchen to easily score the...

Madison Bumgarner And Ryan Braun Started A Nice Little Feud

Madison Bumgarner And Ryan Braun Started A Nice Little Feud

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun had a tense standoff Sunday with Giants workhorse Madison Bumgarner, after the latter threw inside and pegged the former. With this, Bumgarner loaded the bases with two outs and paid dearly.

The initial beef seemed to stem from Bumgarner’s first inside pitch. Before the pitch that actually plunked him on the elbow, Braun appeared to say, “Just throw the ball,...

Braves' Mallex Smith Gets Caught Stealing Second, Bloodies His Face

Braves' Mallex Smith Gets Caught Stealing Second, Bloodies His Face

Braves outfielder Mallex Smith, who has an excellent first name, made his MLB debut in Monday’s game against the Nationals, and was bloody by the fourth inning.

Smith slid as he tried to steal second base, which caused his helmet to fall off and hit him in the forehead. When he stood up, there was blood dripping down his face.

The Braves listed Smith as day-to-day. At least he...
