    Daniel Ralston

    There's a big difference between the criteria for a perfect song and the criteria for the perfect karaoke song. This can be proven through a simple test: Swing by Duet 53 north of Times Square, Cafe Brass Monkey in L.A., or any othe...

    The college football postseason contest headquartered in St. Petersburg* has only operated since 2008, but has rapidly gained market share in the national consciousness as a reliable source of peculiar entertainments. There is the game itself, played...

    Emily Yoshida

    Coachella weekend is nearly upon us! I'm not sure if I'm saying that in a gleeful cry or a conspiratorial whisper, because many of us face a strange conundrum leading up to The Big Fest: Nobody likes the guy/girl who won't shut up abou...

  4. Cousin Sal’s March Madness Prop Bets

    Sal Iacono

    March Madness. Absolutely my favorite betting event of the year. Unless you count the NFL preseason, NFL regular season, NFL postseason, and, of course, the July Fourth Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Despite my gridiron and pork bias, I remain...

  5. NBA Overnight: Evil Klay Thompson, Good Russell Westbrook, and No...

    Chris Ryan

    A quick look at last night's NBA action. This game kind of sucked to watch. At one point Jordan Crawford and Lance Stephenson got into it and I thought the world was going to end. This was one of those contests where you feel like -- despite ...

  7. The Lions Can't Seem to Help Themselves

    Bill Barnwell

    In the end, the Lions were the Lions and the Ravens were the Ravens. A must-win Monday Night Football contest between Detroit and Baltimore saw both teams stay true to form, as the Lions wasted opportunities and played sloppy football before taking a...

  8. How's Victor Oladipo Doing So Far?

    Sean Fennessey

    This is how he's doing. Victor Oladipo is not the most efficient rookie in his class. He is not the most efficient 2-guard in the NBA. He is not even the most efficient 2-guard on his own team. But that isn't the point. The Orlando Magic have ...

  9. How Should Ottawa Fans Handle Daniel Alfredsson's Return?

    Sean McIndoe

    The biggest game on this week's NHL schedule will be one of the last: Sunday night's matchup between the Senators and Red Wings in Ottawa. While there will probably be better contests, there won't be a more emotional one, as the game will mark the fi...

  11. Tuesday Night Lights: On the Precipice of Perfection

    Shea Serrano

    I would like to frame this as a contest more interesting than it was. I would like to write that School J. was surprisingly talented, that our schools were evenly matched, and that wills were tested. I would like to write that, up until the last mome...

  12. Box Office Top Five: Gravity Stays on Top, Carrie Falls Flat

    Zach Dionne

    1. Gravity, $31 million (last week: no. 1; $170.5 million cumulative) Alfonso Cuarón's weekend-movie-contest winning streak is untouchable right now. Gravity isn't just stronger than Tom Hanks anymore — it's stronger than Hanks, Carrie ...

  13. College Football, Week 7: Who Made This Mess???

    Holly Anderson

    Give thanks for the actual playing of college football contests, because without laboratory disasters like Week 7’s meat extruder explosion, we'd have to be worlds more demented to create these story lines on our own. Missouri perches precariou...

    Zach Dionne

    It's hard for the half-dozen or so megawatt rap stars on planet Earth to each stunt about being the best out there and for us to take it seriously, but this round goes to Drake, no contest. Nothing Was the Same topped the Billboard chart with 658,000...

    Week 3 was weird wire to wire, but not without warning. There was spectacle in College Station. There was fantasy in Tempe. The signs were there: Kicking off play with a Thursday-night contest in reliable bat country like Lubbock is just asking for i...
