A guide on what to expect when the Brood X Cicadas come this summer, a look at the legacy of Kevin Garnett, and the definitive ranking of pop culture bugs.

Summer Is Coming. So Are Trillions of Brood X Cicadas.

Jay Torres

A once-every-17-year cicada emergence is about to take place. To prepare, we set out to find the massive insects—and learn all about how they live, sound, and taste.

[Here's Lex Pryor on what to expect when the cicadas arrive this summer.]

Will the Lakers Be a Play-in Team This Postseason? | The Mismatch

Kevin O’Connor and Chris Vernon discuss the possibility of the Lakers falling to a play-in seed and what the Western Conference play-in matchups could look like.

The Night the Bugs Came for Joba Chamberlain

When the rookie phenom took the mound in Game 2 of the 2007 ALDS, he seemed poised to deliver the Yankees a victory. Then the midges swarmed—and created one of the most indelible moments in baseball history.

[Jake Kring-Schreifels looks back on a buggy night in 2007.]

The Sound of Summer

Cicadas sound like ice cream trucks, the whistle of a whiffle ball, the clink of ice in a glass of lemonade—stealthily singing in the backdrop as if they were there all along.

[Join Aric Jenkins as he ruminates on the nostalgic sound of cicadas in summer.]
