The Real Legacy Of The Legendary Kurt Angle Vs. Shane McMahon Match Is WWE Doing Whatever It Wants

On Sunday, fans found that WWE Network’s streaming service had chosen to devote the sixth entry in the WWE Untold series to a match that’s legendary for none of the right reasons. It’s hard to know why the promotion chose to make a documentary about the infamously and gratuitously brutal and violent match between Kurt Angle and Shane McMahon from the 2001 King of the Ring pay-per-view event...

Thirty Years Ago, WWE Admitted It Wasn't A Sport To Try And Dodge Regulation

Thirty Years Ago, WWE Admitted It Wasn't A Sport To Try And Dodge Regulation

It’s never been a secret that pro wrestling isn’t on the level, with plenty of stories on the subject going back all the way to the 1850s. The true reason it was a prearranged exhibition may have changed from fleecing gamblers to increasing entertainment value and maximizing box office revenue with more compelling rivalries, but regardless, it’s always been this way. While “everyone” knew,...

High School Ref Says Hockey Dad Beat Him Up After He Ejected His Son And Wife

Last weekend, Howell High School and Manalapan High School played to a 1-1 tie in boys hockey at Howell Ice World. The game got wild in the third period when a Howell player was given a ten minute penalty for cursing at referee Dave Brown. There was only five minutes left in the game, so this essentially constituted an ejection. The Howell player’s mother then started yelling profanities at...

Normal Joe Flacco Bought A Mattress From Sean Payton's Brother Down The Jersey Shore

Normal Joe Flacco Bought A Mattress From Sean Payton's Brother Down The Jersey Shore

The Saints beat the Ravens on Sunday on the rarest of rarities . So there would’ve been a lot to potentially talk about in the postgame meet-and-greet, but Joe Flacco got right to the important stuff: He needed to let Sean Payton know that Payton’s brother sold him a mattress on the Jersey Shore a few years ago.

Flacco’s a New Jersey native, so that makes sense. It’s unclear if Payton’s...

You Can’t Bet On Rutgers To Win The National Title: The First Day Of Sports Gambling In New Jersey

I almost didn’t get to place a bet that ended up winning me $100.

I had gone to Delaware for the start of sports gambling there last week, and won a $100 bet on the Rockies . I figured I’d test my luck again. For the start of sports gambling in New Jersey—which began at two sites on Thursday—I wanted to bet on Russia to win its first World Cup game. My colleague Billy Haisley wrote that...

Supreme Court Ruling Overturns Ban On Sports Betting

The Supreme Court just released its ruling on the state of New Jersey’s challenge of a federal law that prevented sports gambling from being legalized on the state level. In a 7-2 decision, the court ruled that the federal anti-sports gambling law was unconstitutional, giving New Jersey, and every other state for that matter, the authority to legalize sports gambling.

It was December 14, 1999. The Delaware River Port Authority would vote the next day on whether to authorize the construction of a baseball stadium on the waterfront. The new stadium would be just to the south of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Directly to the north was a...

Anyone who had hoped to one day call Chris Christie on the radio and tell him he’s a corrupt piece of shit will be sorely disappointed to learn that they’ll have to settle for tweeting at him, as the outgoing governor of New Jersey will not pursue an on-air gig at WFAN.

Jerry Jones And Chris Christie Enjoy Passionate, Slow Motion Embrace

Cowboys fans around the globe celebrated the team's controversial comeback win over the Lions yesterday, and no Dallas fan is bigger than Chris Christie.

We GIFed this yesterday, but it really called for the full slow-mo video treatment. It's especially revealing! (We don't blame you, Jerrah. We wouldn't want to touch the Guv' in that state of sweat saturation either.)

Here Are Some Photos Of Chris Christie Playing Softball

Chris Christie (and some other people) played in a softball game at Yankee Stadium last night. There’s video of famous people saying nice things about the NYPD, if that’s your thing, but still photography remains the best way to capture great sports memories. Here are some photos from the game.

(All wire photos by Frank Franklin II for the AP, who probably enjoyed his evening in the Bronx.)

WFAN Caller Tells Chris Christie To "Put Your Fat Ass In A Car" And Go To A Public Beach

It didn’t take long for someone to berate Chris Christie on radio today. Infamous WFAN caller Mike in Montclair took him to the cleaners, and the New Jersey governor’s defense amounted to a bunch of spluttering.

“Governor, next time you want to sit on a beach that is closed to the entire world except you, you put your fat ass in a car and go to one that’s open to all your constituents,” the...
