Matt Dumba Might Be Out For The Year Because He Threw A Bad Punch Matt Dumba Might Be Out For The Year Because He Threw A Bad Punch

Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba, a 24-year-old point producer who was shaping up to have a career-best year through his first 32 games of this season, instead hasn’t played for the Wild since a Dec. 15 contest against the Calgary Flames. That’s when Dumba had to leave the game after just one period with what…

Ja Morant Is The Coolest NBA Prospect You're Never Going To Watch Ja Morant Is The Coolest NBA Prospect You're Never Going To Watch

Murray State blew out Eastern Illinois on Thursday, 83-61, and improved to a 5-0 start to Ohio Valley Conference play in the process. And while I am 99.9 percent sure that virtually all living sports fans could not possibly care less about that result, I am equally confident that you will love watching Murray State…

This Is Only The Start Of The Ducks' Makeover This Is Only The Start Of The Ducks' Makeover

No matter what they do, the Anaheim Ducks cannot grab a win to save their lives. The franchise-worst 12-game losing streak that this team has been suffering through since Dec. 18 has featured a cavalcade of leads slipping through their fingers. In just the past week, the Ducks have blown 3-0 and 4-3 leads against the…

Marcus Smart "Dunked" Onto An Injured Kyle Lowry

The Celtics are playing in a pretty big game against the Raptors right now, and Marcus Smart added two points for his team and a ton of humiliation for his opponents on a “dunk” that ended with the guard landing a forearm drop on a hurt Kyle Lowry.

Would You Let Alex Ovechkin Bite You?

A new start-up called Ambrosia, profiled today in Business Insider, is offering olds the opportunity to fill their veins with young people’s blood, which provides vague and questionable benefits for the vampiric elderly. At current prices, one liter of youthful blood will run you $8,000, while two liters are a steal…

The Warriors Outdid Themselves With A Supernova First Quarter The Warriors Outdid Themselves With A Supernova First Quarter

Technically, the second-place Golden State Warriors were playing against the best team in the West when they took the floor tonight against the Denver Nuggets. But it took them only 12 minutes to show just how misleading the standings can be, absolutely exploding for a franchise-record 10 three-pointers and 51 total…

Every Austin FC Chant Is Lame As Hell Except For The One That's A Tom Petty Song Every Austin FC Chant Is Lame As Hell Except For The One That's A Tom Petty Song

MLS had a big ceremony today to announce that the league’s 27th club, Austin FC, will start playing in 2021. The franchise is an expansion team, not a relocated Columbus Crew (thank god), and although their debut MLS game is more than two years away, the branding process has already begun. There’s a green-and-black…

Can Somebody Besides The White Sox Please Give Manny Machado An Offer? Can Somebody Besides The White Sox Please Give Manny Machado An Offer?

MLB’s slow trudge towards the signing of top free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper may at last possibly be nearing a conclusion. It also may not be! But at the very least the speculation concerning those two stars’ final destinations seems to have narrowed dramatically. Unless any of the ubiquitous and possibly…

Kyler Murray Is Entering The NFL Draft Kyler Murray Is Entering The NFL Draft

After a little bit of uncertainty over whether he would wind up choosing the Oakland Athletics’ farm system instead of an immediate shot at the NFL, Oklahoma QB and Heisman winner Kyler Murray has picked football over baseball and will enter the NFL draft, as reported by Murray himself in this refreshingly blunt tweet:

Erik Gudbranson And Micheal Haley Fought A Proper Boxing Round On The Ice Erik Gudbranson And Micheal Haley Fought A Proper Boxing Round On The Ice

For unexperienced hockey fighters, there may not be any real strategy to winning a brawl other than “flail more intensely and accurately than your opponent” and “hold on so you don’t fall on your ass.” But when two properly trained punchers square up on the ice, the resulting competition can be as calculated as it is…

We're Approaching The Endgame Of The Machado/Harper Negotiations We're Approaching The Endgame Of The Machado/Harper Negotiations

Depending on how much you’re willing to believe the reported rumors, there appear to now be clear frontrunners in what seems to be at best to be three-team races for top free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.

Rick Nash Retires To Avoid The Risk Of Further Brain Injury Rick Nash Retires To Avoid The Risk Of Further Brain Injury

Fifteen-year NHL veteran Rick Nash, who hasn’t played since suffering a concussion in March 2018, has retired from hockey because “the risk of further brain injury is far too great if (he) returns to play,” according to a statement released by his agency Friday morning.

The Superstars Were Feisty Last Night

A couple of the best players in the NHL were feeling strong and violent on Thursday night: While Connor McDavid and Alex Ovechkin each netted a pair of goals in their teams’ wins, they also showed up to the rink ready and willing to dish out more visceral pain.

Save Yourself The Embarrassment And Stop Guarding Markus Howard Save Yourself The Embarrassment And Stop Guarding Markus Howard

It was a miracle of a shot from Marquette’s Sam Hauser that sent the 21st-ranked Golden Eagles’ game against Creighton into overtime on Wednesday night. But it was the guy who inbounded and assisted on that dramatic buzzer-beater who utterly dominated the proceedings, and who did the most to get Marquette a 106-104…

Brewers Improve Team Through Novel Strategy Of Spending Money On Talented Player Brewers Improve Team Through Novel Strategy Of Spending Money On Talented Player

After a long, icy stretch in which the most noteworthy signing was probably Troy Tulowitzki, the hot stove finally flashed some sparks on Wednesday night, as the Milwaukee Brewers got out their checkbooks to pick up a top-notch free agent. Former Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal is moving over to the NL…

Jets Hire Adam Gase In Hopes Of Going 7-9 Jets Hire Adam Gase In Hopes Of Going 7-9

The New York Jets’ head coaching search has reportedly come to an end with the selection of perhaps the most boring name on the market. Despite a list of potential candidates that included exciting assistants like Kansas City’s offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy or hotshot Cowboys d-backs coach Kris Richard, the Jets…

What's Wrong With North Carolina's Nassir Little? What's Wrong With North Carolina's Nassir Little?

Twelfth-ranked North Carolina pulled off an impressive and highly entertaining 90-82 road win against 15th-ranked rivals NC State on Tuesday night. The breakneck UNC squad is off to a 2-0 start in the ACC, and looks like a team that could be both fun and dangerous in March. With the exception of their home win against…
