Deadspin Up All Night: Heard It On My Radio Deadspin Up All Night: Heard It On My Radio

Thanks for your continued support of Deadspin. These lyrics are kind of dumb but the song is still great.

Zach Smith Is Having Another Meltdown On Twitter Zach Smith Is Having Another Meltdown On Twitter

Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith—who was fired this summer after an alleged history of domestic violence against his ex-wife, Courtney, came to light—is back to melting down on Twitter in an effort to prove, I suppose, that the reports about his anger issues are totally inaccurate. Today, Smith attempted…

Josh Norman On Washington's Home Fans: "They're Not Really Behind Us" Josh Norman On Washington's Home Fans: "They're Not Really Behind Us"

With a bend-don’t-break defense and adequate offense, Washington took down the Tampa Bay Bucs on the road today, 16-3. After the game, Skins cornerback Josh Norman, who had a cool interception in the win, got asked about the difference between his team playing at home vs. on the road. Washington is 3-1 on the road,…

The Jets Defense Somehow Made Matt Barkley Look Competent The Jets Defense Somehow Made Matt Barkley Look Competent

Before today, every Bills quarterback who had played in a game this season was either injured or deeply flummoxed by the game of football, so Buffalo’s had to dig deep into the scrap heap to find new guys to trot out. Fishing around with a rubber-gloved hand a few weeks back, they eventually grabbed hold of Matt…

Nick Chubb Ran All Over The Falcons For The Longest Play From Scrimmage Of The Season Nick Chubb Ran All Over The Falcons For The Longest Play From Scrimmage Of The Season

The Browns are pummeling the Falcons defense this afternoon, and one of the main culprits has been Cleveland running back Nick Chubb. Having already caught a receiving touchdown earlier, Chubb added to the damage by running through a hole, making one man miss, and ripping off a 92-yard rush to the end zone in the…

FitzMagic Isn't Strong Enough To Make This Pass Legal

Tampa Bay Bucs QB Ryan Fitzpatrick almost made a magical play on a long third down in the first quarter of today’s game against Washington. With the ball at midfield, Fitzpatrick dropped back, did a supernatural job of escaping the pass rush, then took off running before he, uh, threw a forward pass about 10 yards in…

Louisville To Pay Bobby Petrino At Least $13 Million To Get The Hell Out Louisville To Pay Bobby Petrino At Least $13 Million To Get The Hell Out

After a solid run of several fairly relevant seasons, the Louisville Cardinals are a horrifying disaster in 2018. Not only are they winless in ACC play, but almost all of their games have been pathetic blowouts that have served no good purpose besides making Lamar Jackson look like the greatest college football player…

Tomas Tatar Spoiled Max Pacioretty's Return To Montreal

Max Pacioretty’s first career season playing outside of Montreal isn’t exactly going how he hoped. While the former Canadiens captain appeared to be exiting a rebuilding franchise when he got traded to the Golden Knights this off-season in the final year of his contract, Vegas has endured a bumpy start to the season…

Zach LaVine Couldn't Stop Dunking

The mediocre Bulls defeated the flailing Cavaliers in a nail-biter last night, holding on to a 99-98 win when Collin Sexton couldn’t put home a game-winner. Zach LaVine was the night’s leading scorer, getting 24 points along with eight boards and five assists, and even though he struggled down the final stretch, he…

The Kings' Arena Was Filled With Wildfire Smoke Before Last Night's Game The Kings' Arena Was Filled With Wildfire Smoke Before Last Night's Game

Smoke from the Camp Fire raging in Butte County, California—which has killed 23 people since it began early on Thursday—made its way into the Sacramento Kings’ arena ahead of the team’s game against the Lakers on Saturday night. The game was not delayed, but smoke was visible above the court before tip-off, and it…

Carmelo Anthony Was Putrid In His Return To Oklahoma City Carmelo Anthony Was Putrid In His Return To Oklahoma City

Carmelo Anthony made his return to Oklahoma City tonight as a member of the Rockets, surely bringing back fond memories in Thunder fans’ minds of the time he ... well, he didn’t really do anything on the floor in his year with the franchise besides miss a bunch of shots, but, uh, he shouted some curse words on live TV…

Even The Cameraman Swooned Over Vince Williams's Pick-Six

The Steelers are enjoying an explosive start to their game against the Panthers tonight, and after a 30-second sequence that saw the teams score a combined 21 points, the excitement proved to be too much for one Fox cameraperson.

The Flyers Suffered Through An Absolutely Miserable Powerplay

In the second period of a 2-2 tie game against the Flyers, Arizona Coyotes forward Vinnie Hinostroza got a two-minute minor for tripping and took a trip to the penalty box. It became the best thing that’s happened to his team all night.

Nine Months After ACL Surgery, Kristaps Porzingis Still Can't Run [Update] Nine Months After ACL Surgery, Kristaps Porzingis Still Can't Run [Update]

New York Knicks coach David Fizdale provided a very bleak update today about the status of team centerpiece Kristaps Porzingis, who hasn’t played since he tore his ACL in a game against the Bucks on Feb. 6 last season. Even after nine months of recovery, Porzingis still isn’t fully able to run, and—perhaps even more…

T.J. Oshie Had A Very Rough Night That Ended Perfectly

The Penguins and Capitals were tied 1-1 through 58 minutes of play tonight, but the real loser of the night already appeared to be Washington winger T.J. Oshie. Oshie found himself on the receiving end of a couple of hard knocks by Pittsburgh, which took him out of the game twice even though the poor guy was just…

The Good Version Of Hassan Whiteside Shut Down The Spurs

Miami Heat big man Hassan Whiteside struggles at times and has had some trouble getting along with Erik Spoelstra and Pat Riley, particularly after last season’s playoffs when Riley publicly called out Whiteside’s readiness and conditioning. But there was no question whatsoever about Whiteside’s motivation and ability…

Edmonton Oilers bruiser Milan Lucic got hit with a $10,000 fine but no suspension by the NHL this afternoon, a day after he went after Lightning rookie Mathieu Joseph in the final period of a 5-2 Edmonton loss. With about 10 minutes remaining and the Oilers already down three, the veteran stalked the kid in his own…
