    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/19/10 – Paul Konerko

    Just when Joe Mauer and the Twins were beating up on the White Sox and extending their AL Central lead to 5 games, the White Sox decided to break out their big sticks and take it to the Twins — big time. Leading the White Sox hit attack was Paul Konerko. Konerko had five hits […]

    Bull Leaps Into Crowd, Injures 40 Spectators In Spain (Video)

    We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: “If you mess with the bull, you get the horns.” And while these spectators at a bull riding event in Tafalla, Navarra, were not exactly “messing with the bull”, they were in attendance to watch others do just that, and they were left to suffer the […]

    9 Greatest Simpsons Sports Cameos

    The Simpsons’ charm is the fact that it’s a topical geeky show. And geeky shows aren’t the type to treat athletes reverentially. Rather than treat legends like Namath, Frazier, Madden, and Pele like brightly burning stars, they grant them no exception to the ribbing they give everyone else on God’s green earth. Not sure you […]

    Flaming Stuntman Does A Home Run Trot (Video)

    Many baseball fans will tell you that 2010 has been the year of the pitcher, but I would argue that is has in fact been the year of the home run trot.  And what would lead me to believe such a thing?  Well first there was Kendry Morales’ broken leg following a walk-off celebration.  And […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/18/10 – Joe Mauer

    Joe Mauer may not be dominating like he did last year in his MVP season, but he’s still having a tremendous year for the first place Minnesota Twins. Last night he helped his ballclub increase their lead over the flailing White Sox. Mauer gave Gavin Floyd and the rest of the Sox pitchers fits. He […]

    The Fight Football League Is Not For The Faint Of Heart (Video)

    Last time I checked, American football was a pretty grueling sport, but even hits like the one Eli Manning took during the Giants’ preseason opener on Monday cannot compare to what takes place in the Fight Football League. Inspired by the ancient Roman game of “Harpastum”  (little is known about this game besides the fact […]

    NASCAR’s Deafening National Anthem…Listen At Your Own Risk

    We have heard some terrible national anthems before, and this one by Saving Abel prior to Sunday’s Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at the Michigan International Speedway was among the worst of them.  Perhaps they should have considered “saving Abel”, and the rest of us, from this terrible rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” I […]

    9 Athletes Who Are More White Trash Than Kenny Powers

    Amid the return of “Eastbound and Down” (the anti-”Friday Night Lights”) and the recent partnership between Kenny Powers and K-Swiss, which is laid out in beautiful glory here, we got KP on the brain. Though the show is surely a satire, what’s truly funny (and scary) is that Kenny F*ckin’ Powers DOES in fact represent […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/17/10 — Jim Thome

    What may have looked like a normal divisional series between the White Sox and Twins before the season started has become the series to save the White Sox season, or destroy it.  When the Twins came to town on Tuesday, they were holding a 2 game lead over the Sox in the AL Central.  After smoking […]

    OH OH OH… That Was Close (GIF)

    A sports car turned uncontrollable hover craft, coming around the corner at plus-speeds, almost certainly caused this roadside worker to soil himself. Luckily for the worker, that tree was in the way to allow him to narrowly escape a crushing death. Not so lucky for the driver, the tree was in the way to block […]

    Amazing Basketball Shot From Free Fall Ride (Video)

    Those good ol’ boys from Alabama, “The Legendary Shots”, have been at it again recently. This time they were trying to make a basket from the top of a ride at a local amusement park called “Alabama Adventure”. Check out the video: I think that one of the rides there is called “Go On a […]

    9 Classic McDonald’s Happy Meal Sports Toys

    Upon writing this article, I was both shocked and dismayed to find out that McDonalds has recently been bullied by politicians to stop including toys in their Happy Meals. Their claim is that the inclusion of toys encourages children to eat unhealthy food. Which is odd, because seeing as how McDonalds is a fast food […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/16/10 – Victor Cruz

    Can you hear that?  It’s the sound of footsteps rumbling down the gridiron.  Sure its preseason football, but at least the long wait is over to watch some NFL on television.  The New York Giants played the New York Jets at the new Meadowlands last night and as usual in a preseason game, the starters […]

    Mike Tyson’s Brutal Honesty (PIC)

    When in search for some words of wisdom, few would expect them to come from Mike Tyson.  After all, this is the same man that had previously threatened to eat Lenox Lewis’ children.  Well much to the surprise of everyone, Iron Mike has something rather intelligent to say about his struggles with fame and fortune.

    Meet Hungary’s Skateboarding Priest (Video)

    The reputation of priests from the catholic church may have taken a hit over the past decade or so, but there is one man who is making it his mission to change that.  That man is the Reverend Zoltan Lendvai, a 45-year-old priest who has been preaching the word of God in Redics, a small […]
