Speed Read: An Evening Of Florida Pillow-Fighting

Normally, you don’t see a broadcast booth spend a plurality of a football game raving about the “time of possession” statistic. Then again, normally, you don’t see a team win said battle by a full 30 minutes of game time, which is precisely what Miami did to Indianapolis last night. And then again, you don’t […]

Rugby’s ‘Bloodgate’: New, Messy Ways To Cheat

One of the main reasons a lot of Americans don’t care for soccer is flopping. In a meritocracy like the United States that prides itself on rugged individualism and ascetic Puritan roots, the idea of gaining an unfair advantage by theatrically throwing oneself on the field at the lightest touch is abhorrent. The stereotype of […]

Going Topless On Venice Beach? Bring The Kids!

From my travels along Venice Beach on Sunday:

Actually saw two topless women on the boardwalk that day (other after the jump). Unfortunately, they might as well have been Eddie Vedder with botched implants.

(Hard times for Jim Gray. Hard times.)
More after the jump.

Danica Patrick Autographs BIG Fan’s Bare Boobs

Christina Romer is an IRL fan? Who knew?

(Breaking: Man v. Food guy to feature Danica at St. Elmo’s in season two?)

Holy Tramp Stamp! SI Airbrushed Anna K. Too?!

While sifting through some recent photos of Anna Kournikova at a charity event yesterday, I happened upon this photo:

Kournikova over the past decade is one of the most photographed women in the world, but I don’t recall ever seeing that monster tramp stamp. Turns out I was a little late to the party - her […]

Man Utd Star Rio Ferdinand Prefers A Snugger Fit

Soccer has always had a tough time gaining legitimacy as a sport amongst a large portion of Americans. Maybe it’s Americans’ latent isolationist bent, maybe it’s the flopping, maybe it’s the frequent 0-0 matches. Or maybe it’s stuff like this:

(He appears to be a Florida fan to boot.)
No, your eyes do not deceive you. That […]

“Ladies’ Swimsuit Guy” Continues Reign of Terror

Yes, America is a land of sweeping opportunity and self expression, but here’s a sobering reminder that sometimes our freedoms have horrifying consequences. Police in Sugarcreek Township, Ohio, near Dayton, are still searching for a man who is harassing young girls while wearing a one-piece women’s bathing suit.

Speed Read: Braves Get Their Man (& Ditch One)

Credit the Atlanta Braves for knowing how to manage a news cycle. They flipped three prospects to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Nate McLouth to answer the need for outfield help (which they failed to answer correctly the first time by not signing Adam Dunn in the offseason), and called up Tommy Hanson (pitching phenom) and […]

Nude, Cold Hikers Overrun Hamlet In Swiss Alps

Apparently there is such a thing as “nude hiking enthusiasts” - personally, I can’t imagine anything more uncomfortable, unappetizing and wrong, and I’m just talking about hiking with my clothes on. I don’t want to know where you might get poison ivy or ticks if you go hiking nude, and I certainly don’t want to […]
