What is there to gain from having Ben Shapiro on your platform of choice? Is it the possibility that he shares his appearance with his audience, and hopefully some of that traffic drips down to you? Is that tradeoff worth it? On the latest episode of his podcast for The Ringer, Larry Wilmore chose to have the…

Rick Reilly, Samosa Combine For Powerfully Dull Lede Rick Reilly, Samosa Combine For Powerfully Dull Lede

Report: Kevin Durant's "Expected" To Play Game 5 Report: Kevin Durant's "Expected" To Play Game 5

The Golden State Warriors are facing elimination, but Kevin Durant, who hurt his leg a month ago, isn’t a sure thing for tonight’s game against the Raptors. At today’s practice, head coach Steve Kerr wouldn’t say anything beyond calling his player a “game-time decision” for Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Max Kepler Kept Calling Trevor Bauer's Bluff Max Kepler Kept Calling Trevor Bauer's Bluff

Twins outfielder Max Kepler was fantastic in Thursday’s 5-4 win over Cleveland as he went 4-for-4 with three home runs and a walk. There are two ways to look at this performance, and they’re not mutually exclusive. You could say that Kepler had a hell of a night, and you could say that opposing pitcher Trevor Bauer…

Here's The Sports Highlight Of The Day Here's The Sports Highlight Of The Day

Although this video’s a nice callback to the first entry for Sports Highlight of the Day, it also blazes its own trail. There’s a man doing pushups, while a rascally dog thrusts like it’s never thrusted before.

Half-Naked Australian Man Uses Didgeridoo To Ward Off Intruder, Then Reenacts The Whole Thing

Thieves in Australia, beware: Do not try to break into the house of Adelaide’s Kym Abrook. Though he’s 52 years old, he teaches Brazilian jiu-jitsu and has the ability to destroy you with a didgeridoo if it comes to that. He doesn’t even need pants to do it.

Hank Haney Pretends His Casually Racist Take On Korean Golfers Was Informed All Along Hank Haney Pretends His Casually Racist Take On Korean Golfers Was Informed All Along

Hank Haney, who was formerly Tiger Woods’s swing coach, earned some attention last week when his assessment of the field for the LPGA’s U.S. Women’s Open was essentially Hell, I don’t know any of them, but I think a bunch of them are Korean. Haney, who made the comments on his radio show about golf, admitted he…

Fake Steve Berthiaume Twitter Account Leads To Random Family Crashing Diamondbacks' Booth During Game Fake Steve Berthiaume Twitter Account Leads To Random Family Crashing Diamondbacks' Booth During Game

Arizona Diamondbacks broadcaster Steve Berthiaume doesn’t use Twitter, but someone on the site is pretending to be him. The account @BertDbacks is clearly fake—and also rude—but it convinced a family of D-Backs fans that they could come visit the Fox Sports Arizona booth during Thursday’s game against the Rockies.

Raiders Give Richie Incognito His, What, 50th Chance Raiders Give Richie Incognito His, What, 50th Chance

Offensive lineman Richie Incognito, last with the Buffalo Bills, retired before the 2018 season and said his liver and kidneys were “shutting down.” Today the Oakland Raiders convinced him to return to football and take a one-year, prove-it deal. What that means is that if the signing doesn’t work out, the team can…

Daniel Vogelbach Hit A Homer So Meaty It Could Feed A Family Of Four Daniel Vogelbach Hit A Homer So Meaty It Could Feed A Family Of Four

Look at the faces. No, not at the mugs of the guy at the plate or the guy on the mound, although you’ll find expressions of optimism and helplessness, respectively. Look into the stands, and gaze at all the “O”s on those fans’ faces, their expressions turning them into some kind of poorly organized choir, as they…

Aaron Rodgers Loses Chugging Contest Among Milwaukee-Area Sportsmen Aaron Rodgers Loses Chugging Contest Among Milwaukee-Area Sportsmen

Since the Toronto Raptors have Drake cheering them on, the Milwaukee Bucks need their own celebrity row. Green Bay lineman David Bakhtiari has filled a spot more than once, and he’s excelled at acting as a Rally Packer for the crowd. All he has to do is chug beers, and the crowd gets fired up.

Marcus Stroman And The Red Sox Had Themselves A Little Squabble Marcus Stroman And The Red Sox Had Themselves A Little Squabble

What happened between Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman and the Red Sox in Tuesday’s game doesn’t rise to the level of a feud or beef. It could better be described as a tiff, or perhaps a bunfight.
