Announcer Calls Black UNI Player "Best Athlete ... Flashiest Player"

Northern Iowa is playing Wyoming right now in the NCAA Tournament, and as you would guess, there are a whole lot of smart, gritty gym rats on the court. Two and a half minutes into the game, though, Northern Iowa subbed in Wes Washpun, a black player. Spero Dedes, calling the game alongside Mike Gminski, introduced… » 3/20/15 3:00pm 3/20/15 3:00pm

Ref Goes Down With Injury; Soccer Player Uses Spray To Outline His Body

Hartlepool played Oxford United yesterday in England's League 2, which is not great. Midway through the second half, referee Patrick Miller collapsed, clutching his knee with what appeared to be a serious injury. Not great, either.

If You Like Overrated Teams That Will Let You Down, Root For Georgetown

Listen. My dad grew up in DC. My mom went to Georgetown, and was an extra in The Exorcist. College Allen Iverson is, in my opinion, the greatest basketball player of all time. I grew up playing ball with Austin Freeman. One of my best friends went to Georgetown, and another one is an assistant coach on the team, right… » 3/19/15 1:05pm 3/19/15 1:05pm

Holy Mother Carlos Tevez Just Bombed Germany With This Rocket Golazo

Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are playing today, right now. A few minutes ago, they kicked off. Then two minutes passed. Then Juventus's Carlos Tevez got the ball. Then he blew up Germany's hopes, and also Germany. No more high-quality vehicles for anyone. Because there's no more Germany. Germany's gone. » 3/18/15 4:00pm 3/18/15 4:00pm

Don Lemon Is Great At His Job

Last night, Don Lemon took to his show, CNN Tonight, to host a discussion of, as he put it, The N-Word. It wasn't the first time he'd done so; nearly two years ago, he devoted an entire special to this topic. Famously, note cards were used, and the question of whether the words "cracker" and "nigger" hold the same… » 3/17/15 3:05pm 3/17/15 3:05pm

Stephen A. Smith Floats The Theory That Maybe Chip Kelly Is A Racist

Listen. First Take is a trashy, cynical show that exists so that Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless, two of the widest talking sphincters in sports punditry, can take turns spouting fake and bad shit to the masses. Most of the time, it's so disingenuous that it's depressing, but sometimes, one of these two fellas comes… » 3/09/15 12:45pm 3/09/15 12:45pm

Ronda Rousey Isn't The Female Anyone; She's The First Ronda Rousey

On Saturday night, undefeated UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey took on Cat Zingano, a strong and undefeated fighter in her own right, and one of maybe two women alive who, on paper at least, possibly had a chance to at least maybe show Rousey something. Then the fight started, and it became immediately… » 3/02/15 3:40pm 3/02/15 3:40pm

Jimmy Kimmel Got Some Doctors To Take An Educated Crap On Anti-Vaxxers

When Jimmy Kimmel isn't being a quasi-comedian whose life mission is to think up ways of lying to as many people as possible simultaneously in his quest for easily YouTubeable viral sensations that he can then sell ads against so as to turn a larger personal profit, the dude makes sense.

Oh My God Oh My God I Think Russell Westbrook Could Beat Up My Dad

Last night, while we were all arguing about a black-and-blue dress, Russell Westbrook and a gaggle of tall men who were not Kevin Durant were a half-hour down the road from where the llamas were dodging the cops, playing the Phoenix Suns. If you missed it, or forgot, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost a heartbreaker in… » 2/27/15 2:55pm 2/27/15 2:55pm
