The Cheesemonger Invitational Is Where Cheese Becomes A Sport

The public-facing component of The Cheesemonger Invitational is a dairy bacchanalia where ticket-buying attendees can consume their weight in unlimited cheese. But behind the scenes at the bright, industrial space on the Brooklyn waterfront, the pros have come to compete.

How Well Did The Belmont Stakes Crowd Know Triple Crown History? How Well Did The Belmont Stakes Crowd Know Triple Crown History?

The crowd at the Belmont Stakes was an uneven split between people who were just there to party and horse racing die-hards who make up the entire population of the Park the other 51 weekends of the year. On the morning before Justify won, we talked to representatives from both groups.

A Day At The Belmont Stakes A Day At The Belmont Stakes

ELMONT, N.Y.—From just about 20 feet back from the track at the Belmont Stakes, watching three year-old thoroughbred Justify and his jockey, Mike Smith, make history mostly looked like outstretched arms holding aloft cellphones with the cameras rolling. A normal-sized woman could look up and see, on those screens, ten…

Are These The Names Of Real Race Horses Or Just Nonsense Phrases?

If you’re a millionaire race horse owner who reads Deadspin, please consider yourself welcome to use any of these fake names for your next foal—with credit, of course.

How do you like them scrapple? How do you like them scrapple?

Last summer, five years after moving to New York City, I went looking for scrapple. I don’t mean in the form of an innovative reimagining added to a bougie menu because upscale offal is trendy (although: if you know of an especially worthwhile example of that, please tell me where I can find it).

Behold This Large Lad Hitting His First Home Run At The Most Opportune Moment

Cal State Fullerton lists freshman Jace Chamberlin—not “Chamberlain” and no relationship to Joba, that I can find record of—at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds. The Los Angeles Times writes that he “got the nickname ‘Jumbo’ earlier this year on a trip to New Orleans due to his affinity for jambalaya.” Emphasis added.

Keith Hernandez Has A Lot To Say And It's Not All On Twitter

Keith Hernandez played his last big league baseball game the same year I was born. I’ve never even seen Seinfeld—not just the arc in which Hernandez dates Elaine, but any episode at all. And yet, in the year two thousand and eighteen, Keith Hernandez is one of the baseball figures I would be most likely to recognize…

Lynx To Lynx: "AHHH."

They both make some good points.

The Deadspin Idiots Try To Build A Chair Faster Than A Chair-Building Robot

I’m concerned that it looks like I’m faking incompetence in this video in order to live down to my pre-build expectations for myself. The people with which I have shared apartments and furniture in the past can tell you that I am not faking it. I can tell you that I only wish that was the case. These chairs are…

"Tommy G?": People On The Street Try To Name A Famous Active Baseball Player

If the 2016 survey of 6,000 sports fans that found no active baseball players cracked the top 50 most popular athletes, the persuasive handwringing over Mike Trout’s likability, and the fact that we just considered this question last week to no definitive answer weren’t convincing, here’s more evidence for the…

The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Guy's Insane Two-Finger Push-up The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Guy's Insane Two-Finger Push-up

Don’t let the chest, arm, and shoulder strength distract you from the physical marvel that is his fingers not snapping under the stress.

Iranian Women Dress Up As Men In Order To Attend Soccer Match

Among the crowd that watched Persepolis top Sepidrood Rasht, 3-0, in Tehran last week was a group of six female fans who disguised themselves as men in order to get into Azadi Stadium.

Q&A With Two-Time Judo Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison On Post-Olympic Depression And Her Upcoming MMA Debut Q&A With Two-Time Judo Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison On Post-Olympic Depression And Her Upcoming MMA Debut

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Kayla Harrison became the first American to win a gold medal in judo. Four years later, she defended her title at the Rio Games. That’s the last time she competed in judo. Since then, Harrison has been training for a shift to MMA and working on a book about child sexual abuse, based on…

This Is The Biggest Wave Ever Surfed

Over the weekend, the World Surf League officially crowned Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa the new record-holder for the biggest wave ever surfed. He successfully rode an 80-foot wave off the coast of Portugal in November to overtake the previous record of 78 feet, set in 2011.

Don't Fuck With This Knife-Wielding Seal

Don’t litter; it arms the wildlife.

Varsity Blues Can't Decide How It Feels About The Cult Of High School Football

Varsity Blues works as long as you don’t think about it too hard. Which, I readily admit, probably means it works exactly as well as intended.

Umpire Jerry Meals Is Small, Most Baseball Men Are Large: Physical Comedy Ensues Umpire Jerry Meals Is Small, Most Baseball Men Are Large: Physical Comedy Ensues

Umpire Jerry Meals is five feet eight inches tall. This is a perfectly respectable height, and one that has not kept him from achieving what we can presume was his lifelong dream of being a Major League umpire. Jerry Meals has made it.

White Men Can't Jump Is A Lot Of Fun Masking What Appears To Be A Pretty Debilitating Gambling Addiction

If there’s a moral to be gleaned from White Men Can’t Jump, it’s that that if someone carrying many hundreds of dollars in cash—without a wallet in sight—challenges you to an expensive bet, it’s probably because they know something you don’t.
