"Cool Runnings was not good, and it is definitely not a 'cult classic.'" — A headline from Slate.com, which can go straight to hell, on the sensational 1993 film about the Jamaican bobsled team.

Chloe Kim, Shaun White dazzle


17-year-old American Chloe Kim won gold in the women’s halfpipe on Monday. She had it locked up before her final run and hung a 98.25 out of 100 to top her previous two attempts just for fun. She's the first woman to land back-to-back 1080s. And tweeted about breakfast sandwiches between runs. A millennial superstar indeed.

American Shaun White followed Kim with a fantastic performance in men's halfpipe qualifying, scoring a 98.5. He won gold in the event in 2006 and 2010 but has some stiff competition this time. All three gold medal contenders had unusually strong qualifying runs; they often don't go too hard since they know they'll reach the final.

What's on tonight (8 p.m. ET, NBC)?

  • White goes for gold in the halfpipe final.
  • American skier Mikaela Shiffrin begins her medal chase in the giant slalom; she won gold in 2014. Windy conditions have delayed her events.
  • Short program pairs figure skating, where Team USA is represented by husband-and-wife duo Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim.

Medal count:

  1. Norway, 9
  2. Germany, 7
  3. Netherlands, 7
  4. Canada, 7
  5. United States, 6

Johnny Football says he's bipolar


Johnny Manziel’s redemption tour started Monday. Two big takeaways — he’s really trying to get back into football and he’s been diagnosed as bipolar.

Manziel flamed out of the NFL two years ago after bouts with alcohol abuse, excessive partying and an arrest for domestic violence. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has been working out and trying to convince NFL teams to give him another chance.

Esteban Loaiza, drug kingpin


Former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza was arrested with 44 pounds of cocaine worth about $500,000 in San Diego over the weekend. Police stopped him for a minor traffic violation after suspecting his vehicle was being used to smuggle drugs.

Loaiza played 14 seasons for the eight different teams, including the Yankees. He made $43.7 million in his career and has the second-most wins ever by a pitcher from Mexico.

Loiaza lasted pitched in 2008 and finished second in 2003 AL Cy Young voting.

Lawsuit: MLB agency is giving players steroids


An ex-employee at one of baseball's biggest player agencies is suing the bosses for providing under-the-table payments and performance enhancing drugs to players.

It's a long and winding lawsuit, but the 3 most specific allegations against ACES are:

  1. The agency set up a fake website selling a topical cream that caused client Melky Cabrera to fail a drug tust. They tried to trick MLB into believing that Cabrera ordered the cream from the phony site and thought it was safe.
  2. It provided illegal kickbacks to reliever Fernando Rodney when he tried to leave in 2009.
  3. It gave PEDs to Nelson Cruz, who broke out as a star at age 33.

ACES has a star-studded client list that includes the Rockies' Charlie Blackmon, Nationals' Daniel Murphy and Indians' Carlos Carrasco, so we'll wait and see if anyone else gets implicated.

Let's check in on Markelle Fultz's shot


PhillyVoice.com spent 6 months digging into the real reason behind Markelle Fultz's absence from the Philadelphia 76ers. He was the No. 1 pick in last year's draft but has played in four games.

It's an excellent story that ends without a conclusive answer. The best guess is that Fultz began tinkering with his mechanics because he wasn't a good free-throw shooter, then developed a shoulder injury and a monster case of the yips. And can't shake it. So the team doesn't want to play him even though he's now "healthy."

The weirdest part is this, as Deadspin notes. A coach had "three different sized balls for Fultz to use while going through various shooting motions" during a workout. When did the NBA introduce varying ball sizes? And isn't consistency important when developing a shooting motion?

Fultz has been working with a trainer outside the 76ers organization who may not know what the hell he's doing.

Northeastern wins first Beanpot in 30 years


Northeastern won the 2018 Beanpot Tournament on Monday with a 5-2 win over Boston University to capture its first title in the event in 30 years.

What the hell's a Beanpot?

It's a college hockey tournament between the four Boston schools — Harvard, Boston University, Boston College and Northeastern. It's the first time in the tournament's 66-year history each team has won once in a 4-year span.

It's a huge deal in Boston — maybe an even bigger deal to fans than the NCAA Tournament.

Stat of the day


Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich took the Indianapolis Colts head coaching job this weekend.  He’s the 10th assistant to take a head job right after winning the Super Bowl.

Just 2 of those 9 coaches have had winning records — Mike Shanahan (San Fran to Denver in 1994) and Buddy Ryan (Chicago to Philly in 1986).

The Miami Marlins' fire sale continues.

After trading their three best players this winter, they're also dumping the horrifying sea creature race between innings. Kids everywhere rejoice.
