As part of his presumably lucrative financial relationship with Gatorade, Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper agreed to provide a virtual tour of his “locker” that fans can interactively poke around in on the sports drink’s website.

Giants lose rain-shortened game due to Cubs grounds crew’s ineptitude (vids/pics)

A far from competent effort by the Wrigley Field grounds crew covering up the field during a rainstorm at least partially precipitated — pun intended — a game between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants being deemed official after only four-and-a-half innings played. With the Cubs up 2-0 in the bottom of fifth inning […] The post Giants lose rain-shortened game due to...

Did the NFL send out a headline alert that read, ‘Manziel Fingers the Redskins’? (pic)

Given the subject and the semi-salacious nature of the incident in question, it’s hardly surprising that “Johnny Manziel Middle-Finger-Gate” is the prevailing NFL story of the day.

Huh. That’s … odd. Attempting to come up with any legitimate reason how this NFL.com headline about how the Seattle Seahawks were ‘Giving the Dick’ to the San Diego Chargers during Friday’s preseason game was the result of some terribly unfortunate typographical error may be an exercise in futility.
