    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/14/11 — Justin Verlander

    Talk about Deja Vu!  On May 3rd this year, the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano pitched the first no-hitter of the season.  Only four days later it was Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers pitching a no-hitter of his own, becoming the second pitcher to do so this season. Fast forward to this past Sunday, when […]

    5 Reasons The LeBron Backlash Is Total Bullsh*t

    Looking at the coverage 24 hours after the Mavericks twisted the dagger and the Miami Heat bled out, it’s not surprising to see LeBron James be the recipient of vitriol.

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/13/11 — Hunter Pence

    Having lost eight of their last nine games heading into yesterday’s finale of their four-game series with the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros have been one of the coldest teams in baseball.  Oddly enough, they also currently have one of the hottest hitters in baseball in their line-up.  That would be right fielder Hunter Pence, […]

    Cow Crossing Causes Cycling Pile Up (Video)

    Holding a cycling race on a street that passes through the grassy fields where cows graze may not seem like such a bad idea, but it turned out to be a catastrophic mess during the Critérium du Dauphiné cycling race in France this weekend. The race is said to be a tune-up for cyclists prior […]

    9 Reasons The Heat Are Still the Team To Beat

    Recently, there’s been a lot of hate on the Heat, culminating in last night’s Finals loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Some of it was deserved, and some simply piled on because expectations were so high. Well, they have a few months to lick their wounds, get back to gelling and prove to the skeptics that […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/12/11 — Francisco Liriano

    Francisco Liriano managed to come away with his fourth victory during yesterday’s start against the Texas Rangers, but it was what he failed to come away with that had most people talking following the game. Keeping the Texas Rangers’ bats quiet has not been an easy task for pitchers around the American League lately, but […]

    What Did I Do? (GIF)

    That is Barry Hall of the AFL’s Sydney Swans – now with the Western Bulldogs – delivering a knockout punch to the chin of West Coast Eagles defender Brent Staker a few years back.  While most would call this type of act a “cheapshot,” the Australian media prefers to refer to them simply as “brain […]

    Sexy Wipeout (GIF)

    This gif would be worth watching even if this fit, tanned, sexy young lady didn’t get sent flying off her board and into the water.  But the fact that she does suffer such an unfortunate incident only makes it that much more fun to watch.  Now if only we could get a shot of her […]

    The internet has been abuzz over the recent photo that has surfaced of a greasy, tanned, muscular Tim Tebow teeing off at the driving range prior to the St. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis.  Many people seem impressed with how lean and mean the Broncos quarterback is looking this off-season, but many people should […]

    9 Restaurants Owned by Athletes

    Athletes owned restaurants rarely succeed. Like athletes and music, or athletes and acting, or basically athletes doing anything but athletics is a recipe for disaster. Sadly, this list proves that, with few exceptions, athletes should stay the hell out of the kitchen. “The kitchen” being a metaphor for “any aspect of hospitality development.” Prepare yourself […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/9/11 — Dirk Nowitzki

    No matter what the outcome, the Dallas Mavericks knew that they were playing their final home game of the season last night and they made the most of it.  Leading the charge, as always, was Dirk Nowitzki. It may not have been Dirk’s best offensive output of the season.  Heck, last night’s performance may not […]

    Picture Of The Day: Derp Throwing Face

    Bill Simmons coined the term “Manning Face” to describe the expression one often finds on the face of Peyton or Eli Manning following a frustrating or disgusting play, such as an interception.  With his new website “Grantland” now taking the internet by storm, we have another quarterback’s face that Simmons may want to take a […]

    9 Coaches With Trademark Fashions

    At most sporting events, there is little opportunity for the principals to really flex much muscle in the arena of fashion because, quite simply, all the players are wearing uniforms. Well, the coaches don’t have to. Except in baseball. And baseball managers look ridiculous in uniforms. In the more advanced sports, coaches don’t have to […]
