I got trolled by Ian’s poor screenshotting so now you have to be trolled too. (He has since deleted and fixed it.)

An Empty Net Made Back-To-Back Saves On Chris Wagner An Empty Net Made Back-To-Back Saves On Chris Wagner

Bruins winger Chris Wagner had an excellent game in Thursday’s 5-2 home win over the Blues, scoring the go-ahead goal on a pretty breakaway and assisting on another. But the fourth-liner’s not much of a scorer, so when St. Louis pulled its goalie and Wagner found himself in on an empty net with a good shot at the…

Michigan Attorney General Wants To Question Disgraced Former MSU Interim President John Engler Michigan Attorney General Wants To Question Disgraced Former MSU Interim President John Engler

Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel has requested an interview with John Engler, who resigned as Michigan State University interim president earlier this week to avoid being fired the next day. The AG’s office has accused Engler and MSU of “stonewalling” its investigation into the university’s handling of Larry…

Reporter In Ghana Shot Dead After Exposing Soccer Corruption Reporter In Ghana Shot Dead After Exposing Soccer Corruption

Ghanaian undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale was murdered Wednesday night in Accra, when two men on a motorbike fired into the car he was driving. Hussein-Suale was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The Manny Machado Sweepstakes Is Kind Of A Mess The Manny Machado Sweepstakes Is Kind Of A Mess

It was not all that long ago that baseball people—smart, evenhanded baseball people—were wondering if Manny Machado would become MLB’s first $400-million man. Now we’re all wondering if he’s going to make that much more than Chris Davis.

Reports: MSU Board Of Trustees Will Vote To Fire Interim President John Engler If He Doesn't Resign First [UPDATE: Engler Has Resigned] Reports: MSU Board Of Trustees Will Vote To Fire Interim President John Engler If He Doesn't Resign First [UPDATE: Engler Has Resigned]

Update, 3:02 p.m. EST: John Engler will resign as MSU interim president, according to the Detroit Free Press. The original story is below.

Six days to go until the announcement, but the Baseball Hall Of Fame Ballot Tracker is getting really interesting. Mussina’s a toss-up right now, but the more fascinating projection could be that we’re looking at a 2020 class of Bonds, Clemens, and Schilling. 

Marc-Andre Fleury Got Busted Building A Snow Wall

When they talk about veteran savvy, they are usually referring to little (often unnoticeable) things an athlete does, gleaned through years and years of trial-and-error, but entirely legal. No more. From now on, any mention of veteran savvy will be specifically referring to Marc Andre-Fleury building a little snow…

Antti Niemi Came Up Huge Antti Niemi Came Up Huge

Antti Niemi has been around a long time. Eleven NHL seasons, six different teams. And not once in all of that did the 35-year-old netminder experience what happened last night in Montreal: 20,000 people chanting his name.

I Am Very Excited About The Freddie Kitchens Era I Am Very Excited About The Freddie Kitchens Era

Freddie Kitchens beat out a host of strong candidates for the Browns’ head coaching job, including Joey Bathrooms, Bobby Closets, and, of course, Gregg Williams.

The Saints' Forever Drive Was Unstoppable  The Saints' Forever Drive Was Unstoppable 

“That was a long-ass drive,” Saints guard Larry Warford said of the relentless march down the field that took up nearly the entire third quarter and gave New Orleans its first lead, the only one it would need in a 20-14 win over the Eagles. And my goodness, yes it was.

A Miracle Just Slipped Through The Eagles' Hands

Alshon Jeffery is going to be the scapegoat only because every close game seems to end up with one—something to do with human psychology, I suppose. Yes, he let the ball go through his hands for a game-sealing interception in the Saints’ 20-14 playoff win. But there are plenty of other things to blame, or credit.

Tell Me Again Why Kyler Murray Would Ever Want To Play Baseball? Tell Me Again Why Kyler Murray Would Ever Want To Play Baseball?

Heisman-winning-QB-but-also-A’s-draft-pick Kyler Murray has a choice to make, and it looks like he’s going to forego a baseball career (for now) to enter the NFL Draft, and it looks like he’s going to announce that as soon as tomorrow. Both the A’s and Major League Baseball have sent envoys to Dallas to convince him…

Filip Forsberg Goes Between The Legs For One Clever Goal Filip Forsberg Goes Between The Legs For One Clever Goal

The Predators capped their season’s longest road trip with a 6-3 loss at Carolina, but not before Filip Forsberg scored one of the niftiest goals of the year. It wasn’t particularly flashy—it’s tough to even see what happened at full speed—but it was smart as hell.

Tom Brady Is Absolutely Toasting The Chargers' Zone D Tom Brady Is Absolutely Toasting The Chargers' Zone D

It’s 28-7 Patriots as I write this midway though the second quarter, and New England is taking apart the Chargers defense that looked so impressive in last week’s win over Baltimore. But what works against Lamar Jackson doesn’t work against Tom Brady.

Sean Payton Is Trying To Motivate The Saints With More $1 Bills Than You've Ever Seen In Your Life Sean Payton Is Trying To Motivate The Saints With More $1 Bills Than You've Ever Seen In Your Life

Football coaches have tried a lot of motivational techniques over the years. Tony Sparano dug a hole and buried a football. Jay Norvell wore a blue shirt. Jon Gruden sends players who play well to good teams. Jack Del Rio did whatever he did that resulted in his punter suffering an ax wound. Most of these are very…

Kyrie Irving Was Pissed He Didn't Get The Last Shot Kyrie Irving Was Pissed He Didn't Get The Last Shot

The Celtics fell 105-103 in Orlando on Saturday, and they are, by their own high standards, scuffling. Boston is 25-17, only good enough for fifth in the East. It’s a real comedown for a team that came within a game of the Finals last year without two of their best players. So it’s hard to separate Kyrie Irving’s…

Lacrosse Team Apologizes After Fans Threaten To "Scalp" Native Opponent Lacrosse Team Apologizes After Fans Threaten To "Scalp" Native Opponent

The National Lacrosse League’s Georgia Swarm moved to 4-0 with a 13-11 win in Philadelphia on Saturday, led by star forward Lyle Thompson’s three goals and three assists. But the game was marred by comments from Philadelphia Wings’ PA announcer, as well as from some fans:

They Blew Up The Bradley Center

The Bradley Center, home to the Milwaukee Bucks for 30 years, as well as Marquette hoops and the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals, was partially imploded Sunday morning, as workers detonated charges to bring down the roof. It wasn’t a full demolition, as the arena is too close to nearby buildings (including the Bucks’ new…
