  • The Seattle Sonics’ Fate Is in the Hands of the Oligarchs

    The Kings may soon be sold to a bunch of rich guys from Seattle, which underscores the fact that no matter how passionately ordinary fans feel about our teams, we don’t have a say in making sure they stay in our towns, or even in whether they exist. "Your" team isn't really yours…

  • All Around Losing - How to Be a Man

    Harry normally evades conflict by running away or nervously laughing. He would like to become a man someday, so he endured a physically draining work out with a Krav Maga expert and went to a shotgun-training session at a gun range with an NRA-certified Israeli. Watch as Harry's

    What I Want from the NFL in 2013

    First of all, I want football to continue to happen and not cease to exist because the world has been swept by disease/war/starvation/robots and we no longer care about frivolous things like what large men do with an oddly shaped ball. Then I want Tim Tebow to be happy.

    The NFL Is Terrible This Week

    A whopping 13 games this week feature either two miserable teams flailing at each other like a bitter married couple going through the motions during an argument, or a really good squad that’s already secured a place in the playoffs and a toxic, tumor-ridden failure of a franchis…

    "Will we remember this game any more or less than another when we are taking stock of our lives in our twilight years? Or is true meaning found in pursuits distant from the field: raising children, loving a wife, helping our neighbors in times of need? Ah, well, another day…”…

  • Hey Justice Scalia, Are These Sex Acts OK?

    Antonin Scalia told Princeton students that bans on murder were equivalent to bans on homosexuality and that laws that prohibited "immoral" activity were fine. So what other sex acts would he be OK with us banning? Would Scalia like to make it illegal to masturbate in front of a

    RGIII Is Number I in Our Hearts

    The Redskins quarterback is something to feel good about in football, finally—it’s fun to watch a star bring a franchise back into the public eye, it’s fun to see an offense utilize an individual’s talents that effectively, and it’s fun to see a set of quirky formations triumph…

  • Coffee, Coca, and Government Favors

    If you hate the War on Drugs, Ricardo Cortés should be one of your favorite illustrators. I talked to him about his book, 'A Secret History of Coffee, Coca, & Cola,' which documents the cozy relationship that Coca-Cola had with the US government's drug-enforcement arm.

  • All Around Losing - Stand-Up Comedy Is HARD

    Harry attempts to follow in the footsteps of Louis CK and other schmucks-turned-comedy-idols by trying to become a stand-up comic. He starts at the very, very bottom, subjecting himself to New York's brutal open-mic scene, and quickly discovers that 1) making people laugh is nigh…
