Marvel Vs. Star Wars: WHO YA GOT???!!?!?!?! Marvel Vs. Star Wars: WHO YA GOT???!!?!?!?!

The new Avengers movie drops tonight and so, bereft of better ideas, we thought now would be a good time to kick up a needless fanboy argument and ask: Do you prefer the Star Wars movies, or the Marvel MCU movies? Which one has your childhood stored in a crystal locket, soon to be crushed by an incompetent…

I’m Getting Pretty Fed The Fuck Up With James Comey

Former FBI director and self-appointed beacon of rectitude James Comey is currently in the midst of barnstorming the country’s numerous morning show sets to plug his new tell-all. And while I will gladly side with Comey in any tiff with the President or with Meghan McCain, I think I’ve had just about enough of his…

Should The Giants Trade Odell Beckham? Should The Giants Trade Odell Beckham?

Odell Beckham is the only reason you should ever watch a New York Giants game, but he also happens to be in the final year of his contract and coming off a busted ankle. He wants to get paid, but it’s hard to see the Giants ponying up when MISTER MARA is out there with a clenched jaw, openly fuming about his wideout…

Holy Diapers, It’s Time For Your Name Of The Year Deadcast

Every year we make a point of reading the Name of the Year bracket out loud, and every year the bracket succeeds in reducing me to a puddle of tears. But THIS bracket … my god man, this year’s bracket nearly killed me. I know I say every bracket is the strongest bracket ever, but holy shit. When you got Chardonnay…

23 Things I Say To My Kids Every Goddamn Spring Break 23 Things I Say To My Kids Every Goddamn Spring Break

I am a dad at all times but Spring Break is when I am, without fail, at my MOST dad. It combines all the prime elements of flustered dadding: travel, overpriced food, renting things, lines, dealing with people behind counters, frantic searches for alcohol, and such and such. It’s not so much a vacation as it is a…

Which MLB Teams Will Be The Most Fun, And Which Will Watch The Least Porn? Which MLB Teams Will Be The Most Fun, And Which Will Watch The Least Porn?

Opening Day is today, which means a bunch of middle-aged sportswriters get to put on their propeller beanies and clap their hands like trained seals and cry out YAY BASEBALL! to a relatively indifferent public. But I promise not to meh my way through this somewhat half-assed preview to the season. As someone who…

What Do We Do With Tiger Woods?

Tiger Woods is the favorite to win next month’s Masters, both from a gambling standpoint and a sentimental one. He hasn’t won a tournament in five years. He hasn’t won a major in 10. He’s attempting to come back not merely from personal disgrace, but also from a series of crippling back injuries and an even scarier …

How Not To Write About Movies How Not To Write About Movies

Black Panther is the biggest hit of 2018 and stands poised to become one of the five highest grossing movies in the history of this continent. It’s a rare movie that serves as both an artistic and financial success and has absolutely destroyed any preconceived boardroom notions about a movie with a nearly all-black…

The 2018 Hater’s Guide To The Field Of 68 The 2018 Hater’s Guide To The Field Of 68

The tournament starts today and, in accordance with sacred Deadspin tradition, it is our solemn duty to say a bunch of ignorant, awful shit about all of the teams in this year’s field. Like Tennessee! You think I’m buying Tennessee men’s basketball doing ANYTHING worth a shit? I don’t think so. That team is gonna get…

Now We Get To See If Kirk Cousins Is Really Worth A Shit Now We Get To See If Kirk Cousins Is Really Worth A Shit

So… Kirk Cousins. It is extremely difficult—impossible, even—to evaluate Kirk Cousins solely as a quarterback when, for the past six seasons, he has plied his trade in the middle of Dan Snyder’s never-ending diarrhea rodeo. He was drafted by Mike Shanahan in the fourth round as an insurance policy for the quarterback…
