    NBCOlympics.com’s Curling Headline Racist?

    NBC has delivered some rather inappropriate scenes to its viewers before, but it may be fair to say that their Olympic coverage on NBCOlympics.com has gone a bit too far after headlines after the American women’s curling loss to Japan read, “Japan nips U.S. women in opener.” Had they been playing Canada, Great Britain, Germany, […]

    As the Olympic joint torch made its way across Canada towards Vancouver for the start of the 2010 Olympic Games, several people came out to witness the event and become part of this memorable experience.  Unfortunately, some were looking to become too much a part of it all, and suffered the wrath of some overly […]

    Steve Nash Wants a Spot on the Canadian Men’s Hockey Team (Video)

    He had his nose broken, and still has the scar.  He’s chipped his tooth and has since had it replaced.  And he thinks he is ugly.  According to Steve Nash, when you combine all these attributes possessed by the Phoenix Suns guard, he should at least get some consideration to play for the Canadian Men’s […]

    Alex Ovechkin’s Skate Blades Are On Fire

    There should be no questioning Alex Ovechkin’s pride for his home country, Russia.  After all, the Washington Capitals’ sniper has made it clear to the world that he intends to leave the NHL, if need be, in order to play at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

    What’s Team China preparing for here — some ice dancing or some gang banging?  Take a look at these two Chinese Olympic athletes stretching by the closed concession stand in preparation for Lord knows what competition it is they’re participating in.

    Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis Nyquil Ad is, um, Depressing

    I’m not quite sure what to make of the following Nyquil advertisement.  The medicine is supposed to help with a cold and give you a better night’s rest “for a better [looking] tomorrow.”  However, they’ve depicted U.S. snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis as if she has just overdosed on the medicine (like a few celebrities have in […]

    If you’re taking your kitten out for a little stroll in the dead of winter, why not try giving it some Olympic ski goggles?  Then your little kitty can feel like Lindsay Vonn as it saunters about in the snow.  Heck, even the gold bell around its neck can be the pseudo gold medal.  If […]

    Georgian Luger Dies after Horrifying Crash at Olympics (Video)

    Tragedy has struck the Winter Olympics. I can’t imagine the 2010 Vancouver Games starting off on a more sour note than it has with this horrific, heart-wrenching, accident that occurred to a Georgian Luger, Nodar Kumaritsashvili, during a trial run. Coming around one of the bends, his luge flung him off the track, sending him […]

    Balance Beam Somersault Face Plant (GIF)

    We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again.  There may not be a better GIF than the failed gymnastics GIF.  The popular example is the backflip that just doesn’t work out as planned, but if you want to take things to the next level, why not throw in a balance beam? That is exactly […]

    Italian Skier Wipes Out and Screams in Pain (Video)

    We are coining a new term here at Total Pro Sports today. It’s called “Ski-reaming”. “Ski-reaming” is when you crash badly while skiing then scream extremely loudly because of the massive pain from the wipe out. Unfortunately for her, Nadia Fanchini is the first example of this new term, demonstrated after she loses balance and […]

    When Ski Jumping Meets Freestyle Aerials (GIF)

    The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver are only a few weeks away, and although much of the talk heading into the Opening Ceremonies has revolved around the ice rinks (thanks to Stephen Colbert’s US Speed Skating sponsorship and Canada’s undeniable love for hockey), that shouldn’t take any attention away from the action on the slopes. […]

    Dubai Marathon Winner Pukes as Crosses Finish Line (picture)

    Caveat: These pictures are not for the faint of heart.  As you can see it’s a lady crossing the finish line (first, no less) of a marathon (the Dubai Marathon) and puking at the same time.  Oddly enough, for as unhealthily frail as she looks, the puke looks like it has some chunks in it […]
