    The Flyers Ice Girls, unsurprisingly, had their share of fans. I don’t know what it is about hot girls on ice, scantily clad, bending over to shovel ice, but they were pretty popular. Wait.

    Ron Artest made some ripples in the news a few months back by letting the world know that he wanted to be known as Panda Friend. He was playing in China, so…okay. There’s no context that makes wanting to go by “Panda Friend” seem like a logical choice. However, he seems to have gotten off […]

    Yasiel Puig took matters into his own hands against the rival Giants by absolutely smoking a runner at the plate with a huge throw from the outfield.
