A Naval Special Warfare platoon has been recalled from the war zone after their leader lost trust in their ability to carry out their mission -- an extraordinary move for a command that has faced recent troubling discipline problems. The commander of the Special Operations Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq ordered a SEAL team platoon to return to San Diego "due to a perceived deterioration of good order and discipline within the team during non-operational periods," officials with U.S. Special Operations Command announced in a Wednesday night release. "The Commander lost confidence in the team's ability to accomplish the mission," the release ...

LaVar Ball’s Big Baller Brand Seemingly Just Hit Rock Bottom By Dave Kovaleski Published July 17, 2019 at 10:25am LaVar Ball’s Big Baller Brand debuted in 2017, selling basketball sneakers for $495 — or $995 for a pair autographed by his son Lonzo. The price was obviously too high, reflecting, perhaps, an inflated sense of self-worth by the owner. But now that Big Baller Brand is on its last legs, it is practically giving its merchandise away. A tweet Sunday from LA Sports Radio shows just how far the brand has fallen. It had a booth at a local volleyball tournament in Los Angeles where its wares were being sold for next to nothing. The whiteboard shows T-shirts, ...

Dubious Domination

Why has the American national women’s soccer team won its version of the World Cup four times, while our national men’s team hasn’t made it past the quarterfinals since 1930? It’s not that the American women are better in an absolute sense than the American men. In 2017, for example, the U.S. women’s team was beaten 5–2 by a team of Dallas boys no older than age 15. But Americans aren’t sophisticated enough soccer fans to notice how much worse the quality of play is in women’s soccer than in men’s soccer. No, America dominates women’s soccer for the same reason South Korea dominates women’s golf: because nobody else has much cared. ...

Yankees pitcher and “Ball Four” author Jim Bouton dies at 80 Brian Niemietz, Larry Mcshane 2 hrs ago © Getty Ex-Yankees pitcher Jim Bouton was a 20-game winner, won two World Series games, spent 10 years in the big leagues — and made a bigger impact with a pen in his hand than a baseball.

The Newark, N.J., native died in the home he shared with his wife Paula Kurman after weeks of hospice care. He was 80. Bouton, wearing No. 56 for the Bombers in the 1960s, threw so hard in his early years that his cap routinely flew ...

These horrible women are an embarrassment to the United States of America. The United States women’s soccer team has made it to the final match of the Women’s World Cup. They will be playing the Netherlands in the final game on Sunday. Normally, this would not be something worth commenting on, except for the fact that this team is filled with some of the most obnoxious millennial feminist cunts imaginable. Throughout the tournament they have behaved in a reprehensible manner and have not only embarrassed themselves but embarrassed the country they’re supposed to represent. Their behavior on the world stage is a window into the generally awful behavior regularly displayed ...

And Ross’ name was subsequently dragged through the mud. But before Kaepernick — a man who once donned socks that depicted police ...

If you're an adult baseball fan, there's room for debate about the proper etiquette of keeping a foul ball. If the ball is hit right at you (and you make the catch), it's generally fine if you want to keep a $20 baseball. But if the ball is either clearly intended for a child or requires racing against a child to retrieve the baseball, um, let the kid keep the ball. ...
