It's been two weeks of downtime, and now Blaseball is back for season 15 and I have no idea what's going on but apparently they did something with snacks and also maybe there are time-fish that can rewind innings? Come on in! [more inside]
Run On: Run On Season 1, Ep 0
Veering off course from his preset path, a track star follows his own pace and heart for the first time after a film translator steps into his life. (Netflix, jTBC Korea) [more inside]
The schedules are a little unusual this year, with all the games in central locations and being played later in the week. Schedule is subject to change if needed. Teams need 5 healthy players to be able to play in the tournament. (They don't even need coaches.) In case you've forgotten, Virginia (men) and Baylor (women) are your defending national champions. [more inside]
Season 14 is now underway! Play ball! [more inside]
Blaseball is quite recently back! As we head into what is obviously an extremely lucky and not incredibly dangerously cursed at all Season 13, the two biggest pieces of news of the Internet Blaseball League are (1) teams will now be getting their own official in-game blallparks with who knows WHAT implications, and (2) there are new expansion teams in the league: the Ohio Worms, the Core Mechanics, and the Atlantis Georgians. Rounding things out, the infamously Ascended and thereafter absent Baltimore Crabs are back in the league, raising the total team count from 20 to 24. [more inside]
Kansas City Chiefs (Mahomes!) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Brady!). The Buccaneers will be the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium, and it's Brady's 10th Super Bowl. Only 25,000 people in a stadium which seats 65,000 people. Also there are commercials!
I don't quite understand what's been going on during the extended siesta, but soon a mid-siesta Coffee Cup tournament will be held on the Blaseball site. It seems like a one-off All-Star + special guests tournament, with 16 brand-new teams. [more inside]
Season 11 of Blaseball is kicking off and, geez, where to start! The Crabs won their third championship, and thus (after immmmeadiately losing their fight with The Shelled One's Pods) have ascended out of the ILB, to be replaced by newcomer team Tokyo Lift. Also the squid ate? the Peanut, and then The Boss, who presents as an ancient Roman coin bearing a sigil of justice, ushered in the age of Peace & Prosperity. All the new blessings are Tarot Major Arcana, all the new decrees are about destroying the Forbidden Book, and none of them have any explanatory text. Here comes some Blaseball. [more inside]
Blaseball hits double digits, as season 10 kicks off! Strange weather, five bases for most teams, and a lot of weird Peanut God hijinks coming off last season including a team of undead thralls! Come on in and try to sort it all out. [more inside]
Another week, another year of Blaseball: season 8 opens with the entire Los Angeli Tacos pitching rotation encased in giant peanut shells, Jaylen Hotdogfingers apparently still around and pitching deadly bean balls, and a huge squid rising from the Trench looking for eggs to eat. The Hall of Flame has been revealed, and every incinerated player lurks there (in what state?!), waiting for tribute. We have literally no idea what's going to happen. Play ball! [more inside]
New week, new season: between the resurrection of Jaylen Hotdogfingers, the postponement of the Blood Bath, and the imprisonment of league powerhouses Jessica Telephone and Nagomi Mcdaniel inside giant peanut shells, season 7 of Internet League Blaseball is starting off weird. Which is normal? Anyway, here we go. [more inside]
Another week, another year of Blaseball: season 6 is about to kick off, with a whole new set of leagues and divisions and a lot of Sunday-election changes to players and teams. Have you chosen an idol? Come on in and let's talk blases and balls. [more inside]
Here we are, heading into season 5 of the immaterial plane's favorite and only splort: Blaseball! Get your ablative armor on, put in your anti-Feedback earplugs, careful consume a peanut, and let's talk blases. [more inside]
Well, here we are, most of the way through season 4 of Blaseball's regular season but with a lot of games left to go and pretty much everybody still having at least a slim shot at a playoff slot. Eat some peanuts—carefully—and let's talk blases and balls. [more inside]

Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE SIDEHACKERS Rewatch Season 2, Ep 2
Rewatch! On Thursday: Rommel is a mechanic who participates in weird motorcycle races in his off time. He introduces the unstable J.C. and his gang to his sport, but events take a violent turn. A grimy and depressing take of shattered love and revenge. How did this episode become one of Mystery Science Theater 3000's earliest beloved classics? A lot of it has to do with the sport of sidehacking depicted in the movie, which is two-person motorcycling on a dirt track, with a driver and a rider who leans their butt way out on a sidehack to balance the bike out on sharp turns. An obviously extremely dangerous sport that's the subject of some hilarious extended riff runs. Previously.
