HBO producing sports mockumentary starring Andy Samberg

Before ESPN’s “30 for 30″ series essentially took the title away, HBO was the pioneer of quality sports documentaries. So it might stand to reason that the premium cable network would plow new ground in the making of sports mockumentaries. Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) will star in 7 Days in Hell, focusing on a marathon tennis match at...

Video: Gregg Popovich owns reporter who doesn’t know anything about basketball

Good news! We found the guy who congratulated Nicolas Mahut after losing his first round match at the French Open! The bad news for him is that he ran straight into Gregg Popovich. For some inane reason, this reporter admitted he knew very little about basketball and asked Pop why there’s been so many blowouts in this series.  It’s a question that has literally no answer except...

FRENCH OPEN: Massive Reporting Blunder Dominates…Uh, Little Mistake Goes Viral

VIDEO: Nicolas Mahut Congratulated On Win By Reporter…After Losing

Photo Credit: AP I’m no expert here, but I am going to go out on a limb and say an important part of being a reporter during a press conference after an event is knowing who won and who lost the game. Apparently a reporter, who has yet to be identified, didn’t get the memo at this year’s French Open. After Frenchmen Nicolas Mahut lost a four-set match to Kazakhstan’s Mikhail...

This guy is the worst sports reporter ever

You may remember Nicolas Mahut as the guy who lost the longest tennis match in the history of mankind at Wimbledon a few years ago.  This year he lost in the first round of the French Open and was the victim of a very different, but equally as peculiar, set of circumstances. In the post-match press conference, Mahut was told “congratulations” by a reporter after his defeat to Mikhail...
