raheem-sterling

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has made an extremely strong response to his being racially abused by a Chelsea supporter during his side’s 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge yesterday. Both police and Chelsea Football Club are investigating the incident, and now Sterling has taken to social media and made his first public remarks about the incident.

Raheem Sterling posted a deep and profound message on his official Instagram account where he hit out not at the Chelsea fan, but at media coverage in general. Sterling posted photos of Daily Mail stories about teammates Tosin Adarabioyo and Phil Foden in order to convey an example of the difference between how white and black players are covered by the media.

In Die Hard, What Christmas Eve Bowl Game has Notre Dame vs USC?

die hard christmas movie

This weekend begins the bowl season, and with it the crappy bowl games that very few of us care about. Saturday brings us a cadre of bowl games that are just as awful as whatever bowl game hosted Notre Dame and USC in the classic Christmas film “Die Hard.”

The total number of bowl games has multiplied at an absurd rate these past few decades, but one truth still remains- real bowl games don’t start until after Christmas, and for the most part well after Christmas. Genuinely desirable bowl games still adhere to tradition, and take place on New Year’s. (For a preview of #14 Notre Dame vs #17 LSU go to this link)

mega millions

Willy Wonka has nothing on this golden ticket. Someone in South Carolina, who picked the numbers 5-28-62-65-70, with a Mega Ball #5, has just beaten the odds, and won $1.537 billion. Last night, a South Carolinian (or someone visiting the Palmetto state) beat the odds (one in 302,575,350) and won the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The winner has not claimed the prize as of yet, and it could be weeks or months until he/she does. If they’re intelligent, they will do all they can to protect their anonymity.

As we speak, Kanye West is the top trending term of Twitter nationally due to his lunch at the Office and conversation about prison reform with President Donald Trump.

Attention that could be placed on the historic natural disaster tearing through the southeastern part of the United States today.

Revisiting Disco Demolition Night in Let’s Get Weird, Sports Episode III

“Disco Stu does not advertise,” but I do. The Let’s Get Weird, Sports” podcast is back with episode number three, centering on Disco Demolition night. Part of the Hammer & Rails Podcast Network, which is under the SB Nation umbrella, the latest edition of LGWS is the most popular episode yet, with 4,150+ listens and counting!

And why not? It is a classic tale of a baseball promotion that worked “too well.” The Chicago White Sox drew too many people, and the event got too much “notoriety” as it was an absolutely cataclysmic night at the old ballpark back in 1979.

ESPN College Gameday: How it Went From Transcendent to Unwatchable

espn-college-gameday-jadeveon-clowney

Republishing from 9-16-17

To pinpoint what’s so wrong with ESPN College Gameday in 2017, there are a couple different places from which you can start. You can begin with ESPN’s horrible bungling of the Jemele Hill and Robert Lee situations, and go from there. The same principle, that of “let’s try to never hurt anyone’s feelings ever, no matter what the cost, because hurt feelings means upset sponsors” applies across the board.

ESPN should have never apologized for what Jemele Hill said about Donald Trump.
