  • US Olympians are freaking out over one small detail at the Olympic Village in Rio

    With just eight days until the start of the Summer Olympics, athletes from around the globe are moving into Rio's Olympic Village in droves.  But the Village is not exactly in tip-top shape. Australian athletes are living in nearby hotels after a stress test resulted in flooding and power outages, calling the housing for the Olympic teams "uninhabitable." Over in the Dutch quarters, a small fire broke out.  Perhaps worst of all, there's also apparently have a dearth of power outlets, a potentially huge problem in today's technology-laden society. According to the Snapchats of American gymnasts and Olympic Village roommates Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez (as excavated by FTW) their room in

  • Here's Karl-Anthony Towns dunking on all the children

    In 2005, my friends and I took great interest in a McSweeney’s article titled “A Realistic Assessment of How Many 12-Year-Olds I Could Beat Up Before They Overtook Me.” It is exactly what it sounds like — author Matt Schweiger investigates how he, a 21-year-old of fairly average size, would do in a fight against an ever-growing number of pre-teen boys. Minnesota Timberwolves center and reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns is apparently trying to test his own version of this game. Honestly, they should just turn the camp into a full-on experiment to see how many kids Towns can take on.

  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

  • NBC’s Jeff Burton, Steve Letarte discuss Brad Keselowski’s comments about Watkins Glen

    Former NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski raised safety concerns about road courses in general and Turn 1 at Watkins Glen in particular a few days after he walked away from a crash in testing there. Keselowski lost his brakes and crashed nearly head-on into tire barriers Tuesday during a test session. Friday at Pocono, Keselowski said: “I’m not comfortable with tracks that have run-offs that lead to very harsh angles and that’s certainly the situation that (Watkins Glen) has and always has had it. Road courses remain the most dangerous tracks in motorsports for good reason because of that. We know that going in. Some place has to be safest and some place has to be the most dangerous.

  • Carmelo Anthony predicts Knicks-Bulls on Christmas or opening night

    Carmelo Anthony said the Knicks should have gotten a Christmas game last year. In hindsight, the NBA reportedly agreed. So, Anthony expects New York to get a marquee matchup — against the Bulls — on either Christmas or opening night. Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal: The storylines are overflowing. The Knicks added Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah — two former Bulls — to join Anthony, who strongly considered Chicago in his last free agency. The Bulls answered with a couple big names: Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. They’ll join Jimmy Butler, whose stature is only growing — just like Kristaps Porzingis in New York. Those are plenty of attention-drawing players, and the league will want to capitalize,

  • Report: Clippers exploring leaving Lakers at Staples Center, getting their own arena

    The Clippers don’t just play second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles. They play second fiddle to the Lakers in their own arena. Unless the Clippers want to move from the NBA’s second-biggest market, the former isn’t changing. The Latter? Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN: The Clippers want to escape the Lakers’ shadow. Leaving the Staples Center wouldn’t turn the Clippers into L.A.’s team, but it’d give them a new avenue for attention — and revenue. Of course, if the Clippers stay in the Staples Center, they’ll want the best terms possible. Leaking interest in a new arena only helps their bargaining position.
