The Clog

"Our Greatest Year," the official hybrid comic-play about Cleveland sports and what they do to people, is having a one-night New York City revival on Thursday, and we have a new video from the show. All of the aforementioned are eminently worth your attention.

MMA fighter Brett Rogers beat his wife in front of his kids, which is awful. He also had the strange, nauseating gall to try to spin the experience into a redemption narrative, which is also awful. The least that anyone writing about him can do is not help him out.

The Reds are what they are. That is to say, the trollin'est team in baseball.

With the sabermetric revolution, the value of the stats that encompass the Triple Crown has greatly diminished, but what does that mean the value of the Triple Crown itself?

Keith Hernandez is many things: one of the better first basemen of his era, one of the better Seinfeld guest stars of any era, and an American original. First and foremost, though, Hernandez is a mustachioed man. Or was: before Thursday's game against the Mets, Hernandez shaved his mustache in front of CitiField, for charity. SNY's Ted Berg was there.

The NFL's hilariously (or depressingly) overmatched scab refs have, after three weeks, belatedly handed a game from one team to another. This is worth shouting about, but the problem at the eye of the shitstorm—and the reason we keep having this conversation—hasn't changed, and isn't changing.

Among NFL goofballs, New York Giants TE Martellus Bennett stands out not just for his extreme goofery and progressively less-untapped on-field capacities. There's that, of course, but the player who nicknamed himself "The Black Unicorn" is also probably the only NFL player both willing and able to put his love for specific types of breakfast cereal into rap form. It's a compliment, mostly.

The internet may or may not be good for us. But it's the only place where we're going to find this gif of Shaq's dramatic/self-amused point from his Buick commercial, and that's something.

There are memes, and then there are memes. While anyone can put some LOLCAT letters over a picture of an athlete or fuming coach, only Brandon Freeberg was astute enough to recognize just how much photos of Jay Cutler can be improved—can in fact be perfected—by a Photoshopped-in cigarette dangling off his frowny mug.

Guillermo Rigondeaux is more than just the WBA super-bantamweight champion, although he's that, too. The Cuban defector is both one of the best fighters to come off the island in years, and a reflection of that star-crossed, Castro-afflicted islands contradictions and conflicts. In short, he's a great topic for a movie, which is why Brin-Jonathan Butler is making Split Decision.
