For 18 years, the New York Yankees have played Kate Smith’s 1939 recording of “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch at home games. They began the tradition after 9/11, and kept it going until this season, when they swapped it out for a different recording of the song. According to Stefan Bondy of the …

James Harden Is Just Toying With Poor Ricky Rubio James Harden Is Just Toying With Poor Ricky Rubio

The Houston Rockets have encountered little resistance through their first two games against the Utah Jazz. They’ve hung 240 points on the NBA’s second-best defense and hit 32 three-pointers. (Those would’ve come in handy last May.) Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker are getting theirs, the weird bench unit is playing…

Russell Westbrook Is Struggling Russell Westbrook Is Struggling

The sixth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder were such a popular pick to upset the third-seeded Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs that it’s hardly fair to even call them the underdogs. Only one of ESPN’s panel of 20 analysts picked the Blazers to take the series, and the thinking was fairly…

Skateboarder Touches The Sky, Destroys Unsuspecting Passerby Skateboarder Touches The Sky, Destroys Unsuspecting Passerby

The red-haired skater drops in from the highest launch ramp. He accelerates through the bottom of the halfpipe, hurtling towards the lip only to launch himself into the air before cresting the wave. For a brief moment, our hero kisses the sky. It is at this point that something terrible happens.

Montrezl Harrell Is Very Finicky About His Free Throw Routine Montrezl Harrell Is Very Finicky About His Free Throw Routine

Clippers center Montrezl Harrell is a giant dude who will try to dunk on anyone and scrap for every rebound. He’s spent the first two games of the playoffs succeeding in both areas, going 20-for-24 from the field and causing trouble for the Warriors. He’s also rather fussy about how he is presented with the ball…

Goddammit, DeMarcus Cousins Is Probably Done For The Playoffs With A Torn Quad Goddammit, DeMarcus Cousins Is Probably Done For The Playoffs With A Torn Quad

DeMarcus Cousins might be the unluckiest player in the NBA. After eight seasons on two of the NBA’s most cursed franchises, Boogie’s first-ever playoff run is almost certainly over after 25 minutes and 11 points, as the Warriors announced Tuesday that Cousins has a torn left quadriceps.

Don't Worry, The Sacramento Kings Are Still Dumb As Dogshit Don't Worry, The Sacramento Kings Are Still Dumb As Dogshit

The Sacramento Kings—the NBA’s most laughable franchise and, by ESPN’s estimation, the most miserable team in pro sports—finally had a good season. They didn’t make the playoffs, but they finished 39-43, a 12-win improvement over the previous season. De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield took big steps up, the rest of the…

This afternoon, MMA Junkie obtained a copy of an Oct. 2018 restraining order filed against UFC hall-of-famer B.J.

A judge…

Dirk Nowitzki's Championship Stands Alone Dirk Nowitzki's Championship Stands Alone

Dirk Nowitzki is finally retiring after two decades with the Dallas Mavericks, and is secure in his legacy as the greatest-ever player from outside the United States thanks to 31,540 points scored, the iconic fadeaway jumper, his 14 all-star teams, and the 2007 MVP award. His once-reviled, or at least widely side-eyed…

Today, Chris Mullin announced that he was stepping down as St. John’s basketball coach after four seasons at the helm. Jon Rothstein first broke the news that Mullin was leaving last night.

Here's One Of The Weirdest Penalty Kicks You'll Ever See Here's One Of The Weirdest Penalty Kicks You'll Ever See

Chivas U-17 player Diego Campillo probably thought he’d screwed his team when he bounced his penalty kick off the crossbar against Lobos BUAP last weekend. Fortunately for him, he missed the first go in such spectacular fashion that the ball wound up going in after a nice little trip to the ionosphere.

Jameson Taillon Somehow Kept Pitching After Taking A 102-MPH Line Drive To The Head Jameson Taillon Somehow Kept Pitching After Taking A 102-MPH Line Drive To The Head

The Cubs kicked off their home opener in style this afternoon, hanging 10 runs on the Pirates within the first four innings. Pirates starter Jameson Taillon was on the mound when the Cubs scored the first six, though all of them went down as unearned runs. He lasted just two innings, which was remarkable, since…
