Watching BlackBerry crash in slow motion has been kind of painful, but it was assumed the saga was over when it announced it was taking its ball off the stock market and going home. Only apparently, sticking with the small child metaphor, that home has burned to the ground. Eesh, OK, maybe that’s a bit bleak, but that might be suitable considering the problems at BlackBerry.
Roger Angell, who is blogging the Sox-Cardinals series, and who has been writing about baseball for this magazine since Casey Stengel was managing the Mets, is surely the bard of the thrown ball. His magnificent book on David Cone, “A...Show More Summary
Robert Lusetich analyzes how Brandel Chamblee "has met Woods’ fire with fire, which has turned him into a sort of Skip Bayless caricature, taking cheap shots.? None cheaper than his latest."
Remember the video clip of the guy dropping a red hot nickel ball onto stuff? We've featured a clip where the red hot nickel ball is put on top of a block of ice, but Youtube user carsandwater has put said nickel ball on things like meat, ballistic gelatin, a cup of water (nice!), watermelon and so on.

There was some tabloid fuss last week about a judge refusing Alberto Vilar permission to atten an opera because it finished after 11 pm and that might violate the terms of his parole. Well, Alberto did go to the ball… Onegin, to be precise. He was given two complimentary front row (A) tickets ($255 each) by […]
Last month, people were wondering where hedge fund manager Phil Falcone's wife, Lisa Maria, had disappeared to because she had been noticeably absent from society events ever since the Met Ball in May. The New York Post reported that...Show More Summary
And this is the OTHER Elizabeth Banks Show, thanks to the Met Ball gown that I will never, ever forget, as long as I live. Which maybe makes it a complete success despite what a fugshow it was. Last season’s Katrantzou collection was somewhat depressing — it reminded me of being lost in the woods Read More...
Is this really happening? After all of this time, and all of Anna Wintour‘s reported efforts — discouraging Kanye West from attending the Met Ball with Kim on his arm, refusing to deign to Yeezus’ request that North’s official unveiling come by way of a Vogue cover — is Kim Kardashian finally finding herself embraced, [...]
This Sunday, the clock will strike 12 (Arrowhead time), and the Kansas City Chiefs will ring in the new year versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the first ball that drops will be met with head-hanging anguish, not fist-pumpingShow More Summary
In the news: The parking garage where Bob Woodward met with Deep Throat is being torn down, D.C. Fire and E.M.S are getting new ambulances today, and the Bentzen Ball returns! [ more › ]
I have NO IDEA who decided it would be a good idea for Katy Perry to wear something to the VMAs that Coco Rocha already wore to the Met Ball, but WHY would you set yourself up to be in a Who Wore It Better with COCO ROCHA??!?! That is not going to end well Read More...
I can come over to New York today and help, and I’ll let you use my ball- as long as I get it back. Harlow the Weimaraner, from My Modern Met. Filed under: Uncategorized Tagged: dogs
I’m beginning with the U.S. Harper’s Bazaar subscriber cover, because it reminds me of what she wore to the Met Ball, looking like the sauciest ornamental footman in the world. Isn’t this arresting? I wish they had the guts to make this the newsstand version, to separate itself from every other tousled, tooth-whitened cover out Read More...

Fall is going to be all about punk (take a cue from a mohawked Sarah Jessica Parker at the Met Ball), and while you don't necessarily have to rock a Mohawk or pierce your nose with a safety pin (ouch!) we do recommend trying some version of the trend. Show More Summary
Warning: The following video is graphic in nature. In the eighth inning of his team's victory over the Mets last night, Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson covered first base on a ground ball hit by Eric Young. Unfortunately, Young's foot...Show More Summary
Braves starting pitcher Tim Hudson suffered a gruesome, season-ending injury on Wednesday when the Mets’ Eric Young Jr. stepped on Hudson’s ankle, rather than first base. Hudson was only covering first base after the ball hit by Young bounced off the chest of Freddie Freeman. Show More Summary
