WATCH: Bravest man in the world helps skunk with can on it’s head

As a guy born and raised in the city, anything dealing with the outdoors is a little much for me. Deer, raccoons, and squirrels still roam my backyard from time to time, making this “city boy” anxious. So when I saw this video with a man trying to help a skunk, I almost couldn’t look. A skunk with a pop can on it’s head shouldn’t be more compelling than half of the movies...

Benches clear in Yankees-Blue Jays game, Joe Girardi ejected

Tensions were high during Monday night’s Yankees-Blue Jays game after batters from each team were thrown at by opposing pitchers. It started when Josh Donaldson got plunked on the elbow by Luis Severino, which looked to be purposeful, although it’s hard to know for sure. The Jays clearly thought the intent was there, because they responded by having J.A. Happ hit Chase Headley...

Clinton runs ESPN ad mocking Trump as fantasy football player

While many sports fans may be tuning into Monday Night Football rather than the first Hillary Clinton-Donald Trump presidential debate Monday, the Clinton campaign’s still trying to reach them. They’re even tailoring their message to fantasy football fans, as evidenced by the ads they ran on ESPN.com’s fantasy football page Monday: That stereotype will certainly be familiar...

Perreault on Trouba’s trade request: “How much more does he want?”

It’s safe to say Mathieu Perreault isn’t a fan of Jacob Trouba’s recent request to be traded from the Winnipeg Jets. Trouba released a statement through his agent on Saturday, asking to be traded from Winnipeg due to his role and the Jets’ strong defense core. The restricted free agent didn’t see a future in the Peg’. Perreault wasn’t thrilled with the request. ...

Marlins’ Dee Gordon emotional after lead-off HR

The Miami Marlins are playing the New York Mets on Monday with Jose Fernandez on everyone’s mind. So, when Dee Gordon — a friend of Fernandez who was visibly overtaken with grief on Sunday — led off Monday’s game with a home run, it felt right. Understandably, Gordon’s return to the Miami dugout was quite emotional. Marlins dugout after Dee Gordon's HR. Surreal. pic...

WATCH: Ryan mocks Belichick during press conference

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan isn’t afraid of putting himself out there and taking a chance. Usually it happens on the football field, but Monday it came in front of the Buffalo media in a news conference, when he tried out his new Bill Belichick impression. Sometimes risks don’t pay off.

Patrice Bergeron woke up from his nightmare. The Boston Bruins announced Monday that the team signed Brad Marchand to an eight-year, $49 million contract extension through the 2024-25 season.

Michigan State vs. Wisconsin was more than just a game

I decided it would be a cool opportunity to watch a Big Ten showdown between Wisconsin and Michigan State, but before confirming that I would go, I checked the forecast. Michigan’s weather is fickle, and I had to make sure a blizzard wouldn’t be on its way to East Lansing. After I looked at the weather app on my iPhone and saw that it would be sunny and warm, making the 70-mile...

Kevin Garnett's unique career proves anything is possible

Kevin McHale walked off the court overcome with emotion. After a 101-89 victory over the Boston Celtics, Kevin Garnett walked over to McHale and embraced him for 18 seconds, unloading what can only be assumed was an avalanche of impassioned support for a man who just lost his daughter to lupus a month earlier.

Saban rips LSU for firing Miles in middle of season

Nick Saban does not agree with the way LSU went about firing Les Miles. Miles lost his job on Sunday in the wake of a loss to Auburn, which has the Tigers off to a 2-2 start — the worst start of Les Miles’ 12-year tenure with the program. As far as Saban is concerned, that is no reason to fire a coach with Miles’ track record in the middle of a season. Saban: A man wins...

New year, old curse: The Cleveland Browns are the same old Cleveland Browns

What did the Cleveland Browns do to be cursed by the football gods? As we know, curses have been around since the origin of sports. Some fans accept them, and others question Siri in pursuit of a remedy to cure them. The thought of having a sports curse is unnerving, and a curse is close to impossible to elude. For example, the Chicago Cubs have an eternal skirmish with the curse...
