    15 Great Olympics Commercials

    As everyone knows, the Olympics are about more than sports. They’re about the human spirit and the whole world coming together as one.

    It was on this day in 1984 that Pete Rose collected his 3,053rd career single, passing Ty Cobb for the all-time record.  Rose recorded the hit off of future hall of famer Steve Carlton while playing for the Montreal Expos.

    Throughout the entire season, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson has sworn to shut down pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg once he reaches his 160-inning limit.  But with the Nats sitting atop the NL East and looking primed for a playoff birth, shutting Strasburg down won’t be an easy move to go through with, especially when the […]

    As a Toronto Raptors fan, I wasn’t all that impressed when the team used their fifth-overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft to pick Lithuanian center Jonas Valanciunas.  After all, there were still some big-name NCAA players on the board, like Kentucky’s Brandon Knight and UConn’s Kemba Walker.
