    If you live somewhere in North America (and it’s not under a rock), then you probably know that the Super Bowl is this weekend. And I don’t know about you, but I love the Super Bowl. Of course, part of the reason for this is that, for the last decade or so, we’ve been treated […]

    17-Year-Old Boxer Tubagus Sakti Dies in the Ring in Indonesia (Video)

    I apologize in advance: this is the most depressing sports-related story you’ll read all week. On Sunday, January 27, in Jakarta, Indonesia, a junior flyweight title bout between two 17-year-old boxers was halted in the 8th round. Ical Tobida was handed the victory by technical knock-out after Tubagus Sakti threw up his hands and gave […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/30/2013 — Roberto Luongo

    Roberto Luongo may be on the trading block, but if he continues to play like he has, the Vancouver Canucks may want to consider keeping him and trading Corey Schneider instead. Luongo entered the game with back-to-back shootout losses, but he was able to limit the opposition to a very respectable two goals against in […]

    15 Super Hot Super Bowl WAGs [XLVII Edition]

    I have a hunch this is going to be a pretty good Super Bowl, and not just because it’s Ray Lewis’s last game, or because two brothers are coaching against each other. No, I just think the teams are evenly matched, and that we should see a competitive game. Of course, whether or not I am right […]

    With the Portland Trail Blazers sitting just outside the playoff picture, in ninth place in the Western Conference, every win is crucial at this point in the season.  Last night’s victory is certainly no exception, and they have LaMarcus Aldridge to thank for it. In addition to recording 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two […]

    11 Notable Injuries from the Last Two Winter X-Games

    Does it seem to you like the injuries at the Winter X-Games are getting a little out of control? Well, there might be a very good reason for that. You see, these are athletes who thrive on adrenaline, and the bigger the risk the greater the rush. But there’s no rush in doing the same […]

    One season after making the Western Conference Finals, thanks in large part to their solid defensive play and goaltending, the Phoenix Coyotes have struggled mightily to keep the puck out of their net.  Through their first five games of the season, they have allowed a total of 20 goals (an average of four per game), […]

    This past July at the Summer X-Games in Los Angeles we saw a run-away motocross bike. It ended up running over its rider—an Australian by the name of Clinton Moore. Now, at the Winter X-Games in Aspen, we have a run-away snowmobile. However, it didn’t run over its rider—another Australian. Instead, it ran over a […]

    Despite the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled mightily this season, putting together a 17-25 record through their first 42 games of the season.  That abysmal record had many suggesting that perhaps the team would be better off if their high-scoring superstar, Kobe Bryant, ditched […]
