Padraig Harrington goes Happy Gilmore at long drive contesst

The PGA Championship held its annual Long Drive Competition yesterday at Valhalla in Louisville. Some guys take the competition a little more seriously than others – the top-three finishers receive $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 in charity donations, respectively – but it tends to be pretty entertaining for fans regardless. Padraig Harrington did his best to entertain the crowd...

Chrissy Teigen Tosses Out Solid First Pitch At Dodgers Game

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen was invited to throw out the first pitch before last night’s Dodgers-Angels game, and she didn’t do too bad for herself. Her pitch didn’t quite make it to the glove on the fly but it one-hopped off the plate and into catcher Drew Butera’s glove. She thanked him by running and giving him a giant hug, and now we’re super jealous. Here are some more...

A fan noticed this week that Nolan Arenado’s name was misspelled on souvenir cups, ones that are distributed throughout the season. It is unclear if the organization realized...

Adam Fu*king Dunn Pitched On Tuesday Night

There was quite the position player pitching alert on Tuesday night, and it involved Adam Dunn who surprisingly had some solid movement on a few of his pitches. Adam Dunn came in to pitch the 9th inning of a 15-0 game which involved his White Sox not doing so well.

Dan Snyder Thinks “Redskins” Means “Honor” And “Respect”
