Who Hacked The Nudes? A Working Theory

Everyone likes a good mystery, and the best one around right now involves the leak of hundreds of celebrity nudes onto the internet. The prevailing theory is that some hacker cracked Apple's iCloud service and then uploaded the nudes to the image-based bulletin board 4chan. We suspect that's not what happened, for… » 9/01/14 12:36pm Yesterday 12:36pm

It's unfortunate because Michael Sam is attempting to become the first openly gay player in the NFL, something of enormous symbolic importance, and while no one wants him to be judged by anything but his merits as a football player, many sports fans were and are rooting for him to succeed. » 8/30/14 4:30pm Saturday 4:30pm

Yes, this commenter has a good point—except for the brewmaster stepping down and the brewery outsourcing much of its production to New York and New Hampshire, nothing much changed at all. (I still like Goose Island just fine, as others have noted it's pretty much our Sam Adams and since the sale 12-packs have been… » 8/29/14 3:50pm Friday 3:50pm

The UFC Fucked Up Badly This Weekend, Says The UFC

On Saturday, the UFC held a fight card in Macau, which would in no way be notable if not for the fact that UFC figurehead Dana White, not liking the way judge Howard Hughes scored the first two bouts, actually made him stop judging during the event.

Haughty Dipshit Gregg Easterbrook Makes Terrible Book Recommendations

For today's Buffalo News, columnist Greg Connors did a neat thing, asking a bunch of sports media people—some local, some national—to name their favorite sports books. They listed some really good titles, and it's fun to see what writers like Bryan Curtis, Will Leitch, and Josh Levin came up with. You should go check… » 8/26/14 11:39am 8/26/14 11:39am

I would probably try the patience of Kinja users if I tried to steer this discussion toward what editors—who are useless!—actually do, but it may be worth noting that a lot of what good editors do really just involves listening to people until they've talked themselves into realizing what they'd like to or should… » 8/18/14 1:56pm 8/18/14 1:56pm

I think you may be misreading "Haha Spurs suck because they sold their cow and used the money to buy magic beans except they weren't really magic and now don't look like contenders, which they could have been if they'd played things differently" as "Pip pip cheerio, I—a true Arsenal supporter—loathe those dastardly… » 8/15/14 5:21pm 8/15/14 5:21pm

Russian MMA Card Features Armored Knights Battling With Swords

We're ... not entirely sure what this is, but we watched, rapt, after learning it was happening via Twitter user @grabakahitman. This battle took place on the undercard of a show being held today by M1, a more or less reputable (?) Russian fight promotion, and features dudes in armor battling with swords and shields,… » 8/15/14 1:03pm 8/15/14 1:03pm
