Tom Brady's New App Will Give You Terrible Wellness Advice For $199.99 A Year Tom Brady's New App Will Give You Terrible Wellness Advice For $199.99 A Year

Tom Brady, in his quest to become the NFL’s answer to Gwyneth Paltrow, has just launched the TB12 Method mobile app. The TB12 Method is the dubious lifestyle brand that Brady cooked up with Alex Guerrero, a truly dangerous and dishonest quack who is Brady’s personal trainer.

Report: Yu Darvish Tipped His Pitches In The World Series Report: Yu Darvish Tipped His Pitches In The World Series

Remember how awful Dodgers starter Yu Darvish was in the World Series? He only made it through 10 outs in two starts. He allowed nine hits, eight earned runs, and two homers. He sucked big-time! Now, thanks to Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci, we know why.

Here’s a fun thing from Baseball Savant, which shows you any player’s teammate history. I will probably spend the next 30 minutes messing with this.

Giancarlo Stanton Acknowledges That The Marlins Are A Clown Show Giancarlo Stanton Acknowledges That The Marlins Are A Clown Show

Giancarlo Stanton was officially introduced as the newest member of the New York Yankees today, and he didn’t bother feigning any reverence for the team he spent the first eight years of his career with. Under normal circumstances, that might be seen as callous, or just poor form. But Stanton has just escaped the…

Golf No Longer Wants To Hear From Snitches Golf No Longer Wants To Hear From Snitches

One of the worst things about professional golf is that tournaments have long had the potential to be completely derailed by armchair rules officials. Such was the case earlier this year when a TV viewer emailed the LPGA’s fan feedback address to tattle on Lexi Thompson for misplacing her ball by an inch at most. The…

Derek Jeter Won't Even Show His Face  Derek Jeter Won't Even Show His Face 

Over the weekend, the Miami Marlins sent Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees for a package of players that is honestly not even worth mentioning here. The transaction that took place was made in such profoundly bad faith that “trade” seems too kind a word to attach to it. This was nothing more than the Marlins’ new…

Sean Payton Claims He Doesn't Remember Shit-Talking Devonta Freeman Sean Payton Claims He Doesn't Remember Shit-Talking Devonta Freeman

There was a weird moment during last night’s game between the Saints and Falcons, when Saints head coach Sean Payton did some premature gloating. With his team up 17-10 and 12:30 left to play, Payton gave the “Choke!” sign to Falcons running back Devonta Freeman after Freeman had run for no gain near the Saints’…

Browns Fire Brown, Are Still The Browns Browns Fire Brown, Are Still The Browns

The Browns are less than two years removed from firing their coach, cleaning out the front office, and handing the reins over to baseball guy and analytics darling Paul DePodesta. They also hired Hue Jackson as head coach and Sashi Brown as general manager, and this was supposed to signal a new, more sensibly guided…

We Live In Hell We Live In Hell

Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been multiply and credibly accused of sexually preying on teenage girls, recently sent a mailer to voters in order to convince them that his opponent, Doug Jones, is the wrong man for the job. Please take note of the first bullet point here:

Electric Guitar National Anthem Is The Best National Anthem Electric Guitar National Anthem Is The Best National Anthem

As Vince Staples once wisely put it, the national anthem doesn’t even slap. However, it can sound pretty rad when in the hands of a guitarist who can just really freakin’ shred, man.

It was announced yesterday that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had agreed to a five-year contract extension with the owners. None of the contract details were shared, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting what everyone probably already assumed: Roger Goodell will make so much goddamn money.

Donald Trump's Weird Teeth Create The Worst Possible Combination Of Images And Sounds Donald Trump's Weird Teeth Create The Worst Possible Combination Of Images And Sounds

It’s rude of me to do this, but I’m going to ask that you both watch and listen to this clip of Donald Trump giving a speech today, in which our wet, slurring load of a president seems to be struggling to keep his own teeth in his mouth:

Herm Edwards Flabbergasted By Small Football Jersey Herm Edwards Flabbergasted By Small Football Jersey

Herm Edwards hasn’t been a professional football coach since 2008, and he hasn’t worked for a college team since the 1980s. Fashions and customs have certainly changed since then, apparently to Edwards’s surprise.

Give This Camera Person A Raise Give This Camera Person A Raise
