The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Scottish Dog's Soccer Mastery The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Scottish Dog's Soccer Mastery

There are many dogs out there in the world who can fetch, or can, say, run after a kicked soccer ball and pounce on it while their owner yells, “Look, she’s playing soccer!” None of those dogs are nearly as cool as this Scottish pooch:

The Blazers Really Want Russell Westbrook To Keep Shooting The Blazers Really Want Russell Westbrook To Keep Shooting

Russell Westbrook’s jumper has never been his best friend, but the relationship between the two has become particularly standoffish in the Thunder’s first-round playoff series against the Blazers. Westbrook keeps asking his jumper if he wouldn’t mind pitching in this time around, maybe help him advance out of the…

Report: MLB Suspends Tim Anderson One Game For Calling Honky The N-Word Report: MLB Suspends Tim Anderson One Game For Calling Honky The N-Word

The Royals and White Sox had a brief scuffle Wednesday after Royals pitcher Brad Keller hit White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson in the tush with a pitch in bottom of the sixth inning. The plunking was obvious retaliation for Anderson’s jubilant reaction to a home run he had hit two innings prior, and so everyone got out…

Let Us Hope Jayson Tatum Has Won His Long Battle Against Kobe Brain Let Us Hope Jayson Tatum Has Won His Long Battle Against Kobe Brain

Celtics star Jayson Tatum scored 26 points on 11-of-20 shooting during last night’s Game 2 victory over the Pacers. He was very good, but the best play he made, and the one that should have Celtics fans most encouraged moving forward, involved him passing on what could have been a game-deciding dagger.

Nikola Jokic Showed Gary Harris How To Soothe His Bashed Testicles

While Jamal Murray was catching fire late in the fourth quarter and leading the Nuggets to a dramatic playoff win over the Spurs, his teammates, Nikola Jokic and Gary Harris, were dealing with a separate problem.

Nothing Could Have Shaken Mike Malone's Faith In Jamal Murray Nothing Could Have Shaken Mike Malone's Faith In Jamal Murray

It’s hard to overstate just how bad Jamal Murray was through the first three quarters of Game 2 against the Spurs. The numbers are as plain and grim as numbers get: 0-of-8 from the field, two assists, and a plus-minus of -18 in 24 minutes. But even those numbers don’t quite capture the depths to which Murray had…

Yu Darvish Fucked Up Three Guys With A Magic Fastball Yu Darvish Fucked Up Three Guys With A Magic Fastball

There are many things a pitcher can do on the mound that are cool as hell—we’re talking about throwing bending sliders and disappearing splitters, here. But the absolute cruelest thing a pitcher can do is smoke three guys with one 99 mph fastball.

I Hope Giannis Makes These Cowards Weep On National Television I Hope Giannis Makes These Cowards Weep On National Television

The start of the NBA playoffs always brings a series or two that, when seen on the schedule, elicits a collective cry from fans all over the world: “Can we just skip this one?” At first glance, the Bucks-Pistons series, which has the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed going against a Blake Griffin-less 8 seed, falls into…

Bryson DeChambeau Foiled By Dumbass Stupid Flagstick And Dumbass Stupid Hole Bryson DeChambeau Foiled By Dumbass Stupid Flagstick And Dumbass Stupid Hole

Bryson DeChambeau leads the field after shooting six under par in the opening round of The Masters. Despite this, he has as much reason as anybody to feel bitter about how the course treated him on Thursday.

In His Fifth Appearance Of The Season, Trevor Rosenthal Finally Recorded An Out In His Fifth Appearance Of The Season, Trevor Rosenthal Finally Recorded An Out

If you haven’t spent all of your pity on walking tragedy Chris Davis, whose hitless streak reached 50 at-bats last night, spare some for Nationals reliever Trevor Rosenthal. After missing an entire season to Tommy John surgery and getting released by the Cardinals, Rosenthal landed in Washington this offseason with…

Alvin Gentry Thinks Anthony Davis "Got Some Bad Advice" Alvin Gentry Thinks Anthony Davis "Got Some Bad Advice"

While some NBA teams were busy making a dramatic push for a playoff spot or sending off a beloved superstar last night, the New Orleans Pelicans were just trying to get their final game against the Warriors over with and slink away from what’s been a disastrous season. The game itself was unremarkable, but head coach…

Heat Fans Made Sure To Give Paul Pierce A Memorable Send-Off, Too Heat Fans Made Sure To Give Paul Pierce A Memorable Send-Off, Too

Dwyane Wade’s year-long retirement tour reached its climax last night, when Wade started and played 34 minutes in his final home game as a member of the Miami Heat (this thanks to the Detroit Pistons, whose comeback win against the Grizzlies eliminated the Heat from the playoffs). Wade said goodbye to his home fans in…

Mike Trout Absolutely Wore Out The Rangers Mike Trout Absolutely Wore Out The Rangers

Mike Trout’s career is definitive proof that no matter how singularly great a baseball player is, he cannot carry the other 24 schlubs on the roster to postseason glory. He can, however, spend four days making life miserable for an opposing team.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Proved Something To Joel Embiid Giannis Antetokounmpo Proved Something To Joel Embiid

Everyone’s just waiting for the NBA playoffs to hurry up and start already, but last night’s game between the Sixers and Bucks promised to be the last regular-season contest worth checking in on. It did not disappoint.

Report: The Packers Fell Apart Because Mike McCarthy Is A Dolt And Aaron Rodgers Is Petty Report: The Packers Fell Apart Because Mike McCarthy Is A Dolt And Aaron Rodgers Is Petty

It’s no secret that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy did not get along during their 13 seasons together in Green Bay, but it’s always great when we get a new batch of details showing just how wide and deep the rift between the two really was. Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne…

The Dodgers Simply Cannot Stop Dingering The Dodgers Simply Cannot Stop Dingering

The Los Angeles Dodgers went crazy on Opening Day, setting a record by becoming the first team to mash eight home runs in the first game of the season. We’re now one week removed from that historic performance, and the Dodgers have played six more games. They have not stopped bashing balls out of the park.

Luke Voit Was Steamed About Getting Hit And Then Shown Up Luke Voit Was Steamed About Getting Hit And Then Shown Up

The Yankees lineup is all busted up, so you can understand why the remaining healthy players might be a little more sensitive than usual about potentially getting hurt themselves. This is how we ended up with Yankees first baseman Luke Voit appearing to call Tigers pitcher Joe Jimenez a “fucking fat fuck.”

This Is The Face Of A Man Getting Pulled In The Seventh Inning Of A No-Hitter This Is The Face Of A Man Getting Pulled In The Seventh Inning Of A No-Hitter

It didn’t take too long for the Baltimore Orioles, who came into this season with one of the most clown-ass rosters ever assembled in the history of clown-ass rosters, to do away with whatever good will might have been earned by taking two of three from the Yankees to open the season. They did so by yanking a shot at…

England Keeper Jordan Pickford Goes Out Drinking, Gets Mercilessly Heckled, Gets Into Brawl England Keeper Jordan Pickford Goes Out Drinking, Gets Mercilessly Heckled, Gets Into Brawl

Everton and England keeper Jordan Pickford, who is nearly a year removed from becoming a certified World Cup hero, returned to his home city of Sunderland, England over the weekend for a night out. Perhaps he was hoping to celebrate Everton’s 2-0 victory over West Ham with some of the local lads, but instead he got…
