With the trade deadline looming, we have before us a Red Sox team with style (well, at least when Papi homers) but not enough substance to win. So what pieces do the Sox move? And if they trade Jon Lester, will they be able to sign him in the off season? (Spoiler alert: no chance.) Chad Finn, Steve Silva and I broke it all down. More
Fresh off the slowest week of the sports calendar, there's no shortage of knuckleheads. Coaches and players alike can barely go one full 24-hour news cycle without doing or saying something ridiculous/asinine/pick your adjective, which is why The Knuckles not only survives week after week, they thrive. This week features angry losing pitchers, buffoon NFL coaches and homophobic hypocrites. So bring us your tired, your poor, your huddled knuckleheads. We've got room for 'em all!
Usually when you think rugby, you probably think sweaty, European men in short shorts, running and huddled up around a ball that has some semblance to our country's native pigskin. However, the Harvard Women’s Rugby team has published a photo project that not only celebrates everything they love about the sport and the teammates they spend tireless hours with in training, but that shares their message of creating a positive body image for women.

These Red Sox. We just can't quit on them. Because they don't seem ready to quit on this season. Chad Finn joined me earlier to talk about the road ahead, who we'd like to stay (and go), Jon Lester, Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and more. More
On the heels of Monday night's Home Run Derby and last night's endless, "Martian Chronicles"-length retirement party for Derek Jeter masquerading as the MLB All-Star Game, we could have had a lot of fun at baseball's expense in this week's Knuckle Awards. But that fruit hangs a little bit too low, so in an effort to challenge ourselves, and you, our faithful followers/award show flunkies, we decided to examine another prevalent, ongoing occurrence in the world of sports this past week, NBA free agency . Thus, without further ado, we present to you an all NBA edition of the Knuckles. Ball don't lie.
Bike polo is not for the faint of heart. Though it's an international sport, played at the highest caliber around the world since the nineteenth century, hardcourt bike polo (played on concrete rather than grass) is a game that remains obscure for many— but it's right in our backyard. More
We talked Red Sox round-robin style this week with Steve Silva and Chad Finn from Boston.com Sports, shining a light on the few bright spots of the season so far, listing changes we'd like to see in the second half, and reminiscing about the Good Olde Days, when the All-Star Game was actually a blast to watch.

Forget about that NASCAR race up in New Hampshire this weekend. Forget that Argentina and Germany are clashing in the FIFA World Cup final on Sunday. Forget about how the NFL preseason is creeping closer and closer. More
Back after a break for the holiday, but the layoff barely phased the Knuckleheads of the sports world. Independence Day be damned, The Knuckles are stronger than ever. This week we stay on an international level, tackling bad World Cup officiating, and some more domestic and local Knuckleheads as well. One thing is for sure: Even with a week off, there's no shortage of worthy Knuckles recipients. Knuckleheads are everywhere and we know where to find 'em! So without any further ado, let's get right into this week's winners.
