I'm a featured contributor, and occasional editor, at SB Nation. The movie "National Treasure 2" was based on events that actually happened to me. I live in Louisville, Kentucky, and I am never not wearing a suit and tie.

Vote for your favorite GIF of the week


It's our first THIS WEEK IN GIFs of the baseball season, and the Astros have wasted no time in building their astoundingly crappy GIF legacy. Vote, and help us decide the best of the week.


We at SB Nation posted tens of thousands of comments as we watched this year's NCAA Tournament. Most were fun. Many were posted in blind fits of fury. Here, we examine the phenomenon of "ref rage," and see who got the maddest.

Sports video games are difficult to make


Inspired by games such as NBA 2K14, Jon Bois decided to create a video game of his very own. It went terribly.

Sometimes, a man grins


Quarterback Rusty Smith has started only one game in the NFL. But on YouTube, there stands a humble relic in his honor. It is full of mystery, and it is meant for no one.
