Add Baker Mayfield To The List Of People Who Think It Was Dumb To Draft Daniel Jones

Add Baker Mayfield To The List Of People Who Think It Was Dumb To Draft Daniel Jones

At this point you are not exactly going out on a limb when you say it was stupid for the New York Giants to draft Daniel Jones. Everybody is already saying this, and will likely continue to say it up until the point Jones throws a bunch of touchdowns and leads the Giants to the playoffs. With that in mind, we can give points for honesty to Baker Mayfield for saying the following to GQ, but he...

Old Man Wayne Rooney Is Sick Of These Damn Refs And All This Damn Traveling

Old Man Wayne Rooney Is Sick Of These Damn Refs And All This Damn Traveling

Old Man Wayne Rooney’s MLS stint is just about done. At the conclusion of this season he’ll leave DC United to become a player-manager for Derby County back in England. Perhaps this is a good time for him to make an exit from American soccer, because he seems pretty fed up with the whole enterprise lately.

During Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to the Vancouver Whitecaps, Rooney was subbed off in the...

When he gets upset about poor umpiring, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner has been doing ... whatever it is he’s doing in that GIF above. Some might call it a healthy venting of frustration, but others might call it obnoxious tantrum-throwing. Someone who is definitely on Team Obnoxious is umpire Phil Cuzzi, who...

Vacation Home Beset By Legion Of Barfing And Shitting Vultures

Behold the Palm Beach vacation home that was recently purchased for $702,000, and behold the great many winged beasts who have shat and barfed their way to becoming the home’s true lords and masters:

What we have here, via the Palm Beach Post, is a story about the eternal conflict between humankind and nature. The particulars of the story are this: The Casimano family paid a pretty...

Rex Ryan Is Still Thinking About Those Feeties

Rex Ryan Is Still Thinking About Those Feeties

Rex Ryan loves feet—specifically his wife’s feet, and we have all known this for years and years. What’s inspiring about Ryan is not that he has an admiration for feet, but that he is extremely comfortable with the entire world having knowledge of that admiration.

With that in mind, please enjoy this moment from today’s episode of Get Up:

Every episode of Get Up should just be Rex Ryan making...

Kyle Long Tried To Beat A Teammate With His Own Helmet And Then Barfed

Kyle Long Tried To Beat A Teammate With His Own Helmet And Then Barfed

Training camp fights are a relatively common occurrence, but few are as eventful as the scrap that took place on Wednesday between Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long and defensive lineman Jalen Dalton. Here is a description of the fight that is just packed with evocative imagery:

Long seems to be having a rough go of it lately. He also got into a fight with Akiem Hicks on Sunday, and head...

That Sure Blew Up In Mickey Callaway's Face

That Sure Blew Up In Mickey Callaway's Face

The Mets have somehow gotten themselves into playoff contention, which is both good news and bad news for them. The good news, obviously, is that they may yet have a successful season after a very lame first half. The bad news is that now people are actually paying attention to the Mets, and that means any Mets-flavored cock-ups that occur from now until the end of the season will have a big...

The Athletic Can't Stop Humping Useless Butter Coffee

The Athletic Can't Stop Humping Useless Butter Coffee

Here’s a question: What would happen if you combined the vapidity of ubiquitous trend pieces about athletes eating and drinking things with the cravenness of brand subservience? You’d probably end up with something like this article from The Athletic.

On one level, the point of this article is simply to pretend like the fact that Nick Foles is no longer around to brew coffee for the rest of...

Would You Fight And Die For Titan, The New Dog-King Of Baseball?

Would You Fight And Die For Titan, The New Dog-King Of Baseball?

Look upon Titan, your new sovereign. Titan began his reign at last night’s Rockies game, leading a legion of hounds into the ballpark and laid claim to all lands within it.

Footage of Titan’s conquest can be seen below. At the 1:50 mark, you can see him deliver a rousing speech to his new subjects:

Listen to Titan’s words, and know what it feels like to have all fear banished from your heart....

Antonio Brown Is Now Desperately Searching Twitter For The Helmet He Wants

Antonio Brown Is Now Desperately Searching Twitter For The Helmet He Wants

Antonio Brown is due back at Raiders training camp today, following an extended absence that was caused by his accursed feet and his displeasure at no longer being able to wear the kind of helmet he prefers. Brown’s appeal to the NFL to allow him to go on wearing his old helmet failed, but that doesn’t mean he’s given up on finding a solution.

The problem, as we are all far more aware of than...

Fernando Tatis Jr. Is The Most Powerful Of All The Baseball Sons

Fernando Tatis Jr. Is The Most Powerful Of All The Baseball Sons

This has been the year of the baseball sons. Vlad Jr. and his tremendous rump have been around since April, and some big taters have been mashed. Bo Bichette and his feathered locks joined the fray about two weeks ago, and he has been a delight. Cavan Biggio has been... around... doing stuff. However! No baseball son we’ve seen this season has been as powerful and spectacular as Fernando...

Kenny Stills Isn't Buying Stephen Ross's Bullshit

Kenny Stills Isn't Buying Stephen Ross's Bullshit

After getting called out by his own player, Kenny Stills , for hosting a fundraiser for wet racist Donald Trump, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross attempted to perform some damage control with a limp-dick statement about being buddies with Trump despite disagreeing with him about certain issues:

The statement, which essentially says, “Look, I don’t agree with all the racism, however, Donald Trump...

Dolphins Receiver Kenny Stills Calls Out Team Owner For Hosting Trump Fundraiser

Dolphins Receiver Kenny Stills Calls Out Team Owner For Hosting Trump Fundraiser

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is an old rich white guy, which means he is also a fan of Donald Trump, or at least he is the kind of person who appreciates Trump’s policies enough to throw the man a fancy fundraiser in the Hamptons. One person who does not appreciate Donald Trump, nor his boss cozying up to him in public, is Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills.

Stills made his displeasure...

Report: Some Guy Broke A Teen's Head For Not Properly Respecting The National Anthem

Report: Some Guy Broke A Teen's Head For Not Properly Respecting The National Anthem

From the moment “respecting the flag” became a piece of gristle floating in the soupy brains of people who watch a lot of Fox News and burn their Nikes, we began heading towards this moment. At long last, someone has allegedly assaulted a teenager over perceived disrespect for the flag and national anthem.

The story comes to us from the Mineral County Fairgrounds in Superior, Montana.
