WEEI radio host Kirk Minihane said Thursday night that he’d be stepping away from his show Kirk and Callahan indefinitely, as he was “still battling mental health issues.”
Former Browns linebacker Mychal Kendricks pleaded guilty today on federal charges of insider trading. “I know that I made the decision to accept information, secret information, and it wasn’t the right thing to do,” he reportedly said in court. [Philly.com]
This week, Deadspin and Jezebel swap beats to celebrate America’s most dangerous and controversial pastimes: football and fashion, two sports that have far more in common than you think.
The 39-year-old version of Adrian Beltre has more hamstring injuries and isn’t as powerful as his previous iterations, but when he connects on a pitch, it sounds lovely. And regardless of his age, the Rangers third baseman will always have the same reaction when someone tries to touch his head.
The San Diego Padres have been out of contention since—well, since 2011, so it makes sense that the team would have nothing more interesting going on in September than a Fortnite-adjacent kerfuffle involving a player and his manager.
The most repulsive thing at the U.S. Open this weekend wasn’t John Millman’s shirt or Tennys Sandgren’s personality, but this chicken tender dipped into a soda by a woman in the stands. Fox 5 found Alexa Greenfield, the bold flavor revolutionary (or gross weirdo, depending on your worldview) and got an explanation.
Former Olympic swimmer and two-time gold medalist Klete Keller used the app Wag to find a dogsitter, and very much regretted it when he came home to find two shirtless men on his couch with “personal lubricant” and a camera.
Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez will always have a gun on him, according to his 2013 Instagram post featuring a quote never actually said by Hitler. Wouldn’t that be dangerous if he dove for a fly ball?
Earlier this month, Marlins pitcher Jose Ureña spiced up the team’s divisional rivalry with the Braves by plunking the white-hot rookie Ronald Acuña Jr., who at the time had hit three consecutive lead-off dingers. (The HBP didn’t technically snap Acuña’s streak, although he didn’t hit a lead-off HR the next day.) The…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Drink water.
Papa John, the person, has constructed his latest weapon against Papa John’s, the pizza company: the blog.
With the Dodgers down by three in the bottom of the ninth, Justin Turner looked like he had a sure hit to possibly spark a rally. Then Kolten Wong happened.
Oh brother, what are those freaking Mets up to this time?
A 77 MPH Little League fastball might not be equivalent to a 100 MPH major-league fastball, but a pitch to the crotch is painful at any level of baseball.
By the low standards of baseball, Indians starting pitcher Mike Clevinger is an interesting personality. He loves good vibes, has a flowery tattoo sleeve on his left arm, and frequently wears customized cleats, even if that means pushing back on MLB’s dour uniform rules. Clevinger also has long hair, which means he’s…
In February of 2017, at some conservative event in Maryland, Donald Trump said that Paris was a ruined city because too many brown and black people live there now. (I’m giving you the gist.) He attributed this opinion to his friend “Jim,” a “very, very substantial guy.” Is this jogging your memory?
Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler were previously teammates on the Chicago Bulls, so this could be a lighthearted gag between friends. Uh, maybe.
Notre Dame football will play at Yankee Stadium in November, so to commemorate what will surely be a memorable game against Syracuse, the Fighting Irish will wear these pinstriped uniforms. The price is quite steep at $95, but anyone who’d buy one would be doing so drunk anyway.
Donny Aaron, the husband and coach of UFC fighter Andrea Lee, received attention in June when an Instagram photo showed the swastika tattoo on his arm. This month, police say he assaulted Lee and is on the run.
