Is Rickie Fowler Dating Pole Vaulting Hottie Allison Stokke? (PICS)

Fowler Stokke

One of the most sought after single male athletes dating one of the most sought after single female athletes?

That appears to be what we have on our hands here, if we’re to believe Instagram, as professional golfer Rickie Fowler and American pole vaulter Allison Stokke have recently been sharing photos of the two of them together on social media.

Stokke has been quite the attraction in the sports world ever since she broke onto the scene as one of the nation’s sexiest college track-and-field stars.  As for Fowler, he’s been known to surround himself with gorgeous women.  And you can now add Allison Stokke to that very long list.

Here’s a look at the happy couple(?).

I won!

Robin Lopez Untied Jae Crowder’s Shoe After His Own Shoe Was Tossed (Video)

Lopez untie Crowder shoe

All of this over a shoe.  That’s right.  A shoe.

During Game 4 between the Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics, Bulls center Robin Lopez lost his shoe.  As he went to grab it, Celtics forward Jae Crowder scooped it up first and gave it a toss.  Lopez didn’t appreciate that much, so as we went to grab his own sneaker, he decided he’s untie the laces on Crowder’s sneaker while he was down there.

The result was a delay of game violation for Crowder, and a good laugh for the rest of us.  Check it out:

The San Francisco Giants’s 2017 season was already off to a rough start, and it got that much worse on Friday when it was announced that the team has placed starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner on the disabled list following a dirt bike accident.

The incident occurred on Thursday during the team’s off day in Denver.  The 27-year-old ace is said to have suffered bruised ribs and a Grade 1 or 2 sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder.  He’s been released from the hospital and is resting in the team’s hotel.  He’ll be reevaluated next week, but early reports suggest he’ll miss 6-8 weeks.

In four starts this season Bumgarner had an 0-3 record, a 3.00 ERA, and 28 strikeouts.  This marks the first time in his career that he’s been placed on the DL.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Blocked a Shot…WITH HIS ELBOW! (Video)

Giannis Block

Blocking shots is nothing new for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Last night, during the Bucks’ 104-77 beatdown of the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series, the “Greek Freak” had two rejections, but one of them was unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

What was so special about it? Oh, just that fact that Giannis made the block with his elbow.

Yeah, that’s right. Not his hand. HIS ELBOW.

Do you know what kind of hangtime you need to block a shot with your elbow? If not, allow Giannis Antetokounmpo to show you:

That right there sums up last night’s game. Better luck next time, Raps.

Internet Reacts to Pacers Blowing 26-Point Lead to Cavs in Game 3 (TWEETS)

Another day.  Another crazy comeback in the sports world that has set Twitter on fire.

This one comes from the opening round NBA playoff match-up between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Pacers took a 25-point lead into halftime against the Cavs, and at one point the lead was as large as 26 points.  But the Cavs cut that deficit to 7 by the end of the third quarter.  And when the final buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read, “Cleveland 119, Indiana 114.”

As it was all happening, people across the country were taking to Twitter to talk about another crazy sports comeback—and do some trolling of the Pacers in the process.

Here’s a look at some of the best reactions to the Pacers’ choke job:

Bills OT Cyrus Kouandjio Found Without Pants in a Field, Tells Cops “Shoot Me,” Probably High AF

As much as some people may want to blame this on 4/20, there’s no marijuana on earth that will get you this high.

According to reports from The Buffalo News, Bills offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was taken by police to Erie County Medical Center for observation following a bizarre incident on Wednesday morning.

As the story goes, a farmer called 911 when he noticed Kouandjio wandering around in his field without his pants on. The second-round pick from 2014 had allegedly pulled his car over on Route 400 in Elma, got out, and climbed a nearby electric fence. When police officers arrived on the scene, Kouandjio yelled at them, “Shoot me!” However, they realized the 6’7″, 322-pounder was no threat, so they simply detained him and took him in for examining.

Kouandjio was not arrested and no charges have been filed.

The Bills have released a statement regarding the incident:

“We are aware of the matter involving Cyrus and are carefully monitoring his condition and gathering more information. We don’t have all of the details, so we won’t have any further comment at this time.”

Stay safe, kids. And don’t do drugs!

Drugs are bad

Ronda Rousey Announces Engagement to Travis Browne (Video)

Ronda Rousey Engaged

If Ronda Rousey is in fact done with mixed martial arts and the UFC, she shouldn’t have any trouble finding something to keep herself occupied…now that she has a wedding to plan for!!!

Rousey and her fiancé, fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne, were stopped on the street by a TMZ cameraman, who noticed the giant rock on Ronda’s finger and couldn’t help but ask, “What’s up?”

After thinking about it for a split second, the couple decided to spill the beans.  Check it out:

No word yet on the wedding date, but apparently the whole thing has Dana White’s approval.  When asked to comment on the news, Dana told TMZ, “I’m very happy for Ronda and I’m looking forward to the wedding!”

Maybe they can have the ceremony in the middle of the octagon during one of the UFC’s upcoming pay-per-view events.

Fake News!: Donald Trump, Patriots Call Out NY Times For Misleading Photo From White House Visit

When sports meets politics…

Yesterday, the New England Patriots made their way to the White House for an honorary visit with President Donald Trump following their Super Bowl LI victory earlier this year.  As you’ve probably heard by now, many members of the organization did not make the trip for various reasons.  That includes quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady, who had to bail at the last second due to family matters.

Never one to pass up some negative Trump publicity, the New York Times were quick to point out the decline in attendance between the Patriots’ White House visit two years ago (when Obama was President), and this year’s visit (with Trump occupying the White House):

Interesting, but there’s one big factor that the NY Times forgot to point out—and that the Patriots’ Twitter account was quick to correct them on: 

They then posted a photo with ALL of the members of the organization in attendance:

And one final tweet, for those interested in a more accurate comparable: 

Of course, Trump wasn’t just going to stand by and remain silent while the New England Patriots’ Twitter account defended his honor. He hopped on the social media platform to do some NY Times-blasting of his own:

Serena Williams’ Reps Confirm Tennis Star’s Pregnancy

0419-serena-williams-instagram-4

First Serena Williams posted an image of herself in a swimsuit with the caption, “20 weeks,” on Snapchat, giving everyone the impression that she was pregnant. Then she deleted the snap, leaving us wondering exactly what’s going on.

Well, we’re happy to tell you that we now have confirmation. Serena, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, is expecting a child this fall.

Via TMZ:

No shocker here … our sources told us it was true when Serena posted the shot of herself with the caption, “20 weeks.” Her rep just released this statement: “I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this Fall.”

If all this is true (and we have no reason to believe it’s not), it means Serena Williams was actually pregnant when she won the Australian Open back in January.

Impressive? Yes. But I’ll be even more impressed if she can win the French Open while sporting a baby-bump.

Russell Westbrook On His 51-Point Triple-Double: ‘I Don’t Give a F*ck…We Lost’ (VIDEO)

Russell Westbrook press conference

After a disappointing effort in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s playoff opener, Russell Westbrook went off in Game 2 against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, scoring 51 points along with 13 assists, 10 rebounds, 4 steals and one block.  Unfortunately, the rest of his team still stinks and the Thunder still lost the game by a score of 115-111.

After the game, Westbrook was asked about his impressive 51-point triple-double.  What did he think?

I don’t give a f*ck about the line.  We lost.

REPORT: Aaron Hernandez Lawyer Claims Death Could Be Murder, Not Suicide

Aaron Hernandez prison letter

Many sports fans woke up this morning to the surprising news that convicted murderer and former New England Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez, had committed suicide in his jail cell after hanging himself with a bed sheet.  But despite the fact that this appears to be a suicide to most, Hernandez’s lawyer, Jose Baez, is not entirely convinced.

Via TMZ:

We’ve learned attorney Jose Baez — who just got a not guilty verdict for Aaron last week in the double murder case — has launched an investigation on behalf of Hernandez family and they are not buying the suicide story.

We’re told Baez believes this could be a murder either by inmates or the folks who run the prison.

While it may seem a little far-fetched, murder is not exactly out of the question. Hernangez was serving a life sentence at the maximum security Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Massachusetts after being convicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

He certainly had a lot of enemies thanks to his violent past and gang-related activities, but whether or not that caused someone to kill Hernandez in his jail cell and stage it like a suicide remains to be seen.

WWE Ring Collapses After Braun Strowman Suplexes The Big Show Off the Top Ropes (Video)

WWE Ring Collapse

This poor WWE ring had to endure quite the blow during last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw when Braun Strowman suplexed The Big Show off the top ropes and onto the matt.

Seeing as how these are two of the organization’s biggest wrestlers, and two of the biggest humans in this world, it’s no surprise that the ring immediately collapsed upon impact.

Check it out, and keep a close eye on the referee’s reaction.  It’s hilarious!

How Did This Kyle Schwarber Bunt Stay Fair? (Video)

Kyle Schwarber bunt

I’ve watched this video a million times and I still don’t know how in the world this Kyle Schwarber bunt stayed fair.

Leading off the bottom of the first, Schwarber attempted to beat the shift with a surprise bunt, and it worked to perfection, straddling the third-base line all the way until it hit the base, making it a fair ball.

It was Schwarber’s first bunt of his career, but judging by how good it was, I doubt it’ll be his last.  Check it out:

Rockets Troll Russell Westbrook During Game 1 With Jumbotron Infographic (PIC)

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook and the Houston Rockets’ James Harden have been locked in a battle for MVP honors throughout the course of the 2016-17 NBA season.  Some people have Westbrook out in front because of his record-breaking 42 triple-doubles, while others believe the Rockets’ 55 wins (compared to the Thunder’s 47) give Harden the edge.

As for the Houston Rockets’ in-game operations crew, they seem to believe that Westbrook can’t even hold a candle to Harden.  Rather, they see Harden’s teammate, Patrick Beverley, as the better comparable to Westbrook.

Check out the graphic they posted on the jumbotron during Game 1 between the Rockets and Thunder at the Toyota Center last night:

Ruthless.

And to make matters worse for Westbrook and company, they’d go on to lose Game 1 to the Rockets, 118-87.
