Mike Leach Is Taking The Football-As-War Metaphor To The Classroom Mike Leach Is Taking The Football-As-War Metaphor To The Classroom

People in football love to compare the sport to war. Look at all the shared terminology—“in the trenches,” “field general”—the similar sense of ritual bluster, the contrived partnerships between the NFL and the military, the cynical propagandizing of Pat Tillman, and, of course, Kellen Winslow’s speech about being a “…

For whatever reason, the UFC has seen a real run on sudden, violent first-minute finishes in high-profile fights. Amanda Nunes led us into 2019 by ending Cris Cyborg’s 20-fight win streak in 51 seconds and, one month later, Henry Cejudo upended sweaty weirdo Dana White’s plan to kill the flyweight division by …

Remember the Colorado runner who killed a mountain lion with his bare hands earlier this month? He spoke to KUNC about the ordeal, detailed how he choked it to death with his right foot, and said that owning a cat gave him an idea of how the mountain lion would fight. [KUNC]

Two weeks ago, Georgia businessman Ketan Shah was accused of scamming almost a dozen people out of over $750,000 when he promised to sell them Super Bowl tickets, then simply vanished.

John Elway Will Trade A Pick He Would've Screwed Up Anyway For Joe Flacco John Elway Will Trade A Pick He Would've Screwed Up Anyway For Joe Flacco

Last season’s Denver Broncos went 6-10 with an unimpressive 30-year-old quarterback, putting them in position to pick in the top 10 for the third time in the last 27 years. Their poor record, formidable division, and need to actually rebuild would seem to make them a curious candidate to pay up for an aging QB who…

The Sacramento Kings Are Done Waiting The Sacramento Kings Are Done Waiting

The Mavericks traded Harrison Barnes last night, in a transaction that chiefly made news because it happened in the middle of a game and later drew the ire of a man who has casually shipped out entire rosters of his teammates ahead of trade deadlines past. How could an NBA team, LeBron James asked, be so cruel as to…

The Eastern Conference Playoffs Are Going To Be Good As Hell The Eastern Conference Playoffs Are Going To Be Good As Hell

The Eastern Conference has been dogshit since I started watching basketball, and though the conference’s 2019 Finals participant will surely be skiing uphill in pursuit of a title, the three most significant trades of deadline week all featured Eastern Conference teams getting better by acquiring players from the…
