Scott Radinsky of Pulley and Ten Foot Pole has been hired by the Los Angeles Angels as a bullpen coach.
Perhaps more noteworthy of anything else, though, is Radinsky's punk rock roots. Yes, that guy that's running the Angels' bullpen used to be a punk, and was the singer of the early Epitaph stalwars Ten Foot Pole(formerly Scared Straight) as well as being the current singer of Pulley, who was also on the vaunted Epitaph imprint.

ESPN has shut down Grantland.
Effective immediately we are suspending the publication of Grantland. After careful consideration, we have decided to direct our time and energy going forward to projects that we believe will have a broader and more significant impact across our enterprise.

Now that football season is (finally!) here, Billboard interviewed the DJs for the Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks. The piece is an interesting glimpse into how music gets selected to play at workouts and warm ups, but the most interesting bit might be the Seahawks' DJ saying that it's frequently awkward when players request Future songs, who you might remember is the ex of QB Russell Wilson's girlfriend Ciara. Also, Atlanta Coach Quinn's first requests were Tupac and Rick Ross. Hell yeah, football baby. The whole interview is here, and it comes with a Spotify playlist curated by each team's DJ.

The NFL has reportedly narrowed down a shortlist of Super Bowl halftime performers: Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay. More importantly though, the Wall Street Journal reports that the league has inquired about a "pay to play" type of deal.
While notifying the artists' camps of their candidacy, league representatives also asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.

LeBron James is once again a Cleveland Cavalier. If you like sports talk, check out the sports forum and the NBA Thread.
I’m not promising a championship. I know how hard that is to deliver. We’re not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but I’m realistic. It will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010. My patience will get tested. I know that. I’m going into a situation with a young team and a new coach. I will be the old head. But I get a thrill out of bringing a group together and helping them reach a place they didn’t know they could go. I see myself as a mentor now and I’m excited to lead some of these talented young guys. I think I can help...

Following Drake's "incident" last week the Toronto Raptors distributed 1,200 free OVO/Drake-branded lint rollers during game five of their playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets last night. Life has begun to parody itself and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Bruno Mars and The Red Hot Chili Peppers set a new record with 115.3 million viewers watching, passing Madonna having 114.0 million in 2012 and 110.8 million for Beyonce in 2013. Too bad the Chili Peppers didn't even have their instruments plugged in.
