Why it’s OK for Oregon fans to root for Washington Saturday

...This season is lost. The Ducks need to rebuild. And U-Dub is the lone team from this timezone to have a shot at the playoff... But those aren’t the only reasons for loyal Ducks to don some Dawg Pound gear this weekend. By Andrew J. Pridgen Forget, for a minute, about the last two decades. Forget about The Pick. Never happened. The...

I’m so pumped to watch the NL Wild Card with the sound down and Van Halen’s Fair Warning playing on a loop in the background it’s ridiculous

“We’ve got our guy. They’ve got their guy. It’s going to be a great matchup" — Bruce Bochy By Andrew J. Pridgen The Nats and their Vegas-bred Mormon mashing robot. The Dodgers trying to shake those one-and-done playoff blues. Cleveland and that newly minted title town (<-- lowercase) swagger. Chicago and its pasty fans and all their expectations who will only be...

The End

More than a half decade of miracles on the shores of Mission Rock washed up bad on Tuesday night. Now it can be said, the Giants were a great ride but it’s someone else’s turn. By Andrew J. Pridgen Whether it was because of marketing, ignorance or sheer strength of will, there was a part of me that believed the...

Outside Bozeman poorly attempts to address ski town rape culture in terrible Trump era post-election archive post

Whether irresponsible, ignorant or just poorly timed, one mountain town lifestyle magazine's quest for Friday click bait backfires. By Justin Broglio Here’s one you may have missed on the internet yesterday. (Note: Not fake news). In a very poorly thought-out attempt to possibly lighten the mode in our country or strike a “conversation” about how women are constantly sexualized, threatened and treated...

HBO’s Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons is objectively bad, but not for obvious reasons

The boy-king of sports and pop culture chat is now an older man who has run out of ideas ...and apparently wardrobe and set options. Update: HBO announced Friday, Nov. 4 that the last episode of the show, “Any Given Wednesday,” would be broadcast next week, just four and a half months after its debut. The show had poor...

Jamie Whitmore’s long, tough trail to gold

The former XTERRA World Champion takes home a gold and silver from Rio’s paralympic games. By Andrew J. Pridgen I don’t care much for movie stars or models, mostly because any adulation from me would go unreturned — famous people are like the opposite of dogs. I don’t get the butterflies if I run into a politician or a financier — and I...

Matt Bush, Shithead Hero

Baseball is a complicated sport...played by even more complicated individuals. Written by Kyle Magin Lost amid the #ourmoment celebrations in Toronto on Sunday night was the gutsy/freakish outing by Rangers’ losing pitcher Matt Bush. Bush, for those of you unacquainted with his story, is a washed-out 2004 first overall pick of the San Diego Padres. He’s also a demonstrable shithead. Picked originally as...

The Oregon Ducks will go 5-7 this season. Here’s how (and why)

Hint: It’s not just Mark Helfrich. Well, it’s mostly Helfrich...but not all Helfrich. By Andrew J. Pridgen Every civilization has its rise, apex, then demise. Unfortunately, for reasons he can’t 100-percent control or articulate, Oregon football coach Mark Helfrich will be the man fingered for destroying the Ducks’ unprecedented two-decade run to big-time college football prominence, and—perhaps more importantly for...

The NFL Does Not Make A World Class City

You could argue that San Diego will be just fine without the NFL. We’ve done that. Now we’re gonna do it again. Written by Kyle Magin “Do we want to be a world-class city, or just a small town?” - Fred Maas, San Diego Chargers Special Adviser. Maas, a wealthy Republican consultant and San Diego developer, utters that sentence at the...

Why the f*ck are you still a 49ers fan?

I try and I try and I try...but I can’t seem to understand the point of rooting for the present-day 49ers unless you have that disease Drew Barrymore had in 50 First Dates where you maybe got knocked out sometime in the early ‘90s and every day you wake up thinking the team is great while at the same...
