The New Yorker Looks To A Stupid Man To Answer An Even Stupider Question The New Yorker Looks To A Stupid Man To Answer An Even Stupider Question

Sports and politics cannot be separated. Sports expresses, iterates, and interacts with politics at basically every point of their intersection. Even apart from the myriad ways sports, specifically, contain and are shaped by politics, as parts of what we’re still obliged to call a society even as it unravels around…

Hypothetical Grievances Presented By An Australian Newspaper To Defend Its Big-Lipped Serena Williams Cartoon, Ranked Hypothetical Grievances Presented By An Australian Newspaper To Defend Its Big-Lipped Serena Williams Cartoon, Ranked

To riff on Serena Williams’s spat with umpire Carlos Ramos in the U.S. Open final, the Melbourne Herald Sun published an illustration of the tennis player, drawn by editorial cartoonist Mark Knight, which has since been met with international disgust. Today, like any normal newspaper, the Herald Sun opted to dig in…

Report: Detroit Tigers Announcers Had A "Physical Altercation" After Game [Update] Report: Detroit Tigers Announcers Had A "Physical Altercation" After Game [Update]

Play-by-play man Mario Impemba and color commentator Rod Allen have been calling Tigers games on Fox Sports Detroit together for over a decade—and they make a great on-screen duo, for what it’s worth. But apparently, putting two men together in a small box and forcing them to talk for several hours 162 games a year…

CORRECTION (7:51 p.m.): Though the announcement of Edwards’s suspension was made after Harbaugh’s press conference, Pat Kenny of Big Ten Network tells Deadspin that Edwards was informed of his suspension Sunday, before Harbaugh made his comments, and that “Coach Harbaugh’s comments had no bearing on the decision…

L.A. Weekly Co-Owner Sues Other Owners, Alleges Wild Ethics Violations L.A. Weekly Co-Owner Sues Other Owners, Alleges Wild Ethics Violations

It’s been eight months since a group of rich people from Orange County bought L.A. Weekly and ritually sacrificed the paper’s entire award-winning staff in an altogether embarrassing attempt to peel off a chunk of media power for themselves without having to understand the industry or care about it beyond putting a…

Washington Post Op-Ed: John McCain Will Haunt Donald Trump Into Defeat From The Mirror Dimension Washington Post Op-Ed: John McCain Will Haunt Donald Trump Into Defeat From The Mirror Dimension

An increasingly prominent part of my life in 2018 is the urge to grab and cling onto anything that seems, even a little bit, like it might be the thing that Finally Defeats Donald Trump. No small portion of my day is spent managing my relationship to that urge, struggling against its downward pull, reminding myself…

It Doesn't Matter If Michelle Beadle Doesn't Watch Football It Doesn't Matter If Michelle Beadle Doesn't Watch Football

You probably don’t care about ESPN’s new-ish morning talk show, Get Up, because why would you? It’s a glossy, inoffensive talk show meant to be half-watched by people who fell asleep watching a game on ESPN the night before and are too lazy to change the channel in the morning while getting ready for work.

Former Colts Announcer Who Used N-Word Was Quoting Auto Racing Analyst, And Now That Guy's Been Fired Former Colts Announcer Who Used N-Word Was Quoting Auto Racing Analyst, And Now That Guy's Been Fired

This is an intricate little piece of modern-day racial insensitivity and old-school racism, so let’s start slow. Bob Lamey, who worked as radio play-by-play announcer for the Indianapolis Colts for over 30 years, retired suddenly on Sunday. News station 13 WTHR later revealed that he had used the N-word off the air,…

The Athletic, the venture capital-backed digital sports media venture that’s plundering sportswriters from news organizations all over the country and has said it wants to brutally kill newspapers, finally announced on Monday that it is turning its gaze to Washington, D.C.

Jason Witten Doesn't Quite Have This Telestrator Thing Down Yet Jason Witten Doesn't Quite Have This Telestrator Thing Down Yet

Former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is easing into his post-NFL career as a color commentator, and he’s still got some kinks to work out. During last night’s preseason game between the Ravens and Colts, Witten whipped out his telestrator pen to break down a simple edge rush for the fans watching at home:

Mike Lombardi Wrote Doug Pederson A Letter Apologizing For Being A Dummy Mike Lombardi Wrote Doug Pederson A Letter Apologizing For Being A Dummy

Football Knower Mike Lombardi infamously said that Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was “less qualified to coach a team than anyone I’ve ever seen” before the start of last season. Pederson went on to win the goddamn Super Bowl, and Lombardi has been eating crow ever since. Today, Pederson served him another helping.

MLB Network Falls For Joke Report That Trevor Bauer Is Treating Himself For "CIA Nanites" MLB Network Falls For Joke Report That Trevor Bauer Is Treating Himself For "CIA Nanites"

It’s possible to believe a lot of whacky stories about Trevor Bauer, who is both a big old dummy and also a too-online crank who once wanted to use a soldering iron to cauterize a finger wound. A report that Bauer wants to use alternative methods to treat the stress fracture in his right fibula would surprise exactly…

Athletic Writer Throws Fit Over Rhode Island Not Giving Into Stadium Financing Scheme Athletic Writer Throws Fit Over Rhode Island Not Giving Into Stadium Financing Scheme

A hot new sports media startup may not be the place you’d expect to find a braindead take lifted straight from a dead-tree columnist’s 1996 notebook, but then you remember that The Athletic, in its quest to destroy all print sports sections, did hire plenty of middle-aged white guys. One of those guys is Joe McDonald,…

The Constantly Stupid Braves Announcing Booth Has Infected Jeff Francoeur The Constantly Stupid Braves Announcing Booth Has Infected Jeff Francoeur

Even in a profession that asks old men to talk about baseball non-stop for four hours a night, the Atlanta Braves’ announcing team stands out for its dedication to infuriating dumbassery. Most often, it’s the duo of Joe Simpson and Chip Caray who do the heavy lifting, running their mouths about suitable batting…

Please, God, I Can't Handle A Preseason Deflategate Please, God, I Can't Handle A Preseason Deflategate

Try to imagine the worst possible NFL preseason storyline. If you think hard enough, you’ll probably come up with the vague outlines of something involving... the Pittsburgh Steelers... deflated footballs... and... sports radio dingus Howard Eskin? Well guess what, asshole, that’s the shit we’re in right now:

Yankees Play-By-Play Guy Michael Kay Is In Hot Water With Clint Frazier Yankees Play-By-Play Guy Michael Kay Is In Hot Water With Clint Frazier

In an animated discussion on his radio show Monday, about the four-game weekend series sweep that all but knocked the Yankees out of contention in the AL East, Yankees television play-by-play man Michael Kay was at the very least clumsy with his choice of words while bitching about which Yankees were available and…

Braves Announcers Throw Exquisitely Awkward Tantrum Over Dodgers Batting Practice Attire  Braves Announcers Throw Exquisitely Awkward Tantrum Over Dodgers Batting Practice Attire 

Braves announcers and crusty old fuddy-duddies Joe Simpson and Chip Caray threw the saddest little mid-game tantrum Saturday night, during a Braves loss to the Dodgers.

Craven Columnist: Various Circus Clowns Say Jimmy Garoppolo Should Not Date A Porn Actress Craven Columnist: Various Circus Clowns Say Jimmy Garoppolo Should Not Date A Porn Actress

Several great-grandparents were deeply scandalized this month by the revelation that 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had dinner with porn actress Kiara Mia, despite it being 2018 and there just being nothing lamer than wringing your hands over the social life of a fucking football player.
