Damian Lillard Smacks Down A Twitter Troll

Damian Lillard was one of four casualties of Team USA roster cuts late Friday night, losing out on a spot at a stacked position: point guard. Lillard was the odd man out of a group including Derrick Rose, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The cut was somewhat predictable, considering Lillard didn’t play a single minute in the final tune-up for Team USA on American soil. After Lillard...

Ricardo Lockette is a former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver who now plies his trade as the Seattle Seahawks’ 5th or 6th receiver (depending on how the roster shakes out after final cuts). He’s also made a bit of a name for himself on special teams, after a couple nice takedowns of punt returners in 2013. Friday night, late in the Seahawks’ 34-6 thrashing of the Chicago Bears...

Unaware PGA Golfer Pays Dearly For Playing Ball Off The Wrong Green

We’re not sure what Seung-Yul Noh’s plan was at the 11th hole during the second round of The Barclays on Friday. His tee shot went wide — waaaaay wide — and landed on the green of the third hole. By rule, Noh gets a free drop. Except that’s not what he did. Instead, Noh casually pulled out an iron and whacked a huge divot in the green. That’s a no-no in golf because,...

Doug McDermott’s Rendition Of ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ At Wrigley Just Set Baseball And Music Back 50 Years

Your browser does not support iframes. Chicago Bulls first round pick Doug McDermott was the guest of honor at last night’s Cubs game at Wrigley, where he sang ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ during the seventh inning stretch. Well, “sang” is pretty generous. I don’t know what the hell that was, but I wouldn’t classify it as singing. I’ve heard farts that can carry...

How FIFA Is Ruining The 2015 Women’s World Cup

FIFA has a problem. This specific problem isn’t corruption, thought that’s certainly an issue worth talking about. This specific problem isn’t racism, though that’s certainly worth a conversation too. No, this specific issue is about the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. Because FIFA is on the verge of ruining it. Prior to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil (the men...

Floyd Mayweather Attempting To Read A Radio Promo Is Kind Of Sad

By now you’re probably aware of 50 Cent’s challenge to Floyd Mayweather, calling on the champion boxer to read one page of a Harry Potter book. Fiddy later revised the challenge, allowing Mayweather to only read Dr. Suess’ “The Cat In The Hat”, and do so on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It appears 50 Cent knew exactly what he was doing, and Charlamagne the God played along with it...
