    Mark Lisanti

    The first day is always the hardest. But we're through it now. It can't hurt us anymore. That's a lie. As a now-six-time Grantland Bracket participant, as someone who has watched good soups die facedown in the minestrone muck and stood by impotent...

  10. USMNT 'B' Team Looks to Impress Klinsmann at Gold Cup

    Noah Davis

    The CONCACAF Gold Cup is a silly tournament with a rather goofy name. It serves as the regional championship, which means a bunch of teams play a bunch of games, then the United States and Mexico meet in the finals. The structure of the tournament, w...

  11. On Marion Bartoli, a Perfect, Weird Wimbledon Champion

    Louisa Thomas

    The weirdest thing about this year's Wimbledon is that the tournament isn't like this more often. Yes, nine of the 10 top women's seeds lost before the semifinals. Yes, Nadal, Federer, Serena, Azarenka, Sharapova, etc. Yes, the women's winner didn't ...

  15. Romain Bechu Is Coming for Tiger Woods's Golf-Trick Crown

    Shane Ryan

    The first golf tournament I ever saw in person was The Players Championship. This was sometime in the late '90s, I think. I was probably 12. Sorry, my records from that time are woefully incomplete. The point is, we went on a Saturday, and I have two...
