    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/16/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most baseball fans expected the Philadelphia Phillies to dominate this season due in large part to their incredible starting rotation.  They have done just that, as they entered last night’s game against the Florida Marlins with a league-best 43-26 record and a six-game winning streak.  And thanks to a brilliant performance by starter Cliff Lee, […]

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

    This Day In Sports History (June 16th) – Phil Jackson

    It was on this day in 1999 that the Los Angeles Lakers hired Phil Jackson as their next head coach.  After leading the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles, Jackson took a year off from coaching before returning to coach the Lakers. In his first year in L.A., Jackson produced immediate results, as the Lakers […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/15/11 — Tim Thomas

    Yes, I am well aware of the fact that Josh Beckett pitched a one-hit shutout last night.  Kudos to him, but before you begin to tell me about how he deserves the “Stat Line of the Night,” let me ask you the following question.  Did he receive two trophies for his accomplishment afterwards?  No, he […]

    Yesterday we showed you a glimpse of how LeBron James has transformed over the past eight years from a humble rookie to a cocky veteran.  Today we look at another famous athlete’s transformation. Ladies and gentlemen, Tiger Woods. As for things Tiger wouldn’t do these days, I’d say you can scratch that last one off […]

    Was This Tweener Shot From Andy Murray Really Necessary? (Video)

    After losing the first set and leading 6-5 in the second set of his finals match at Queen’s Club against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, England’s Andy Murray decided it would be a good time to give the crowd something to get excited about.  From his point of view, a tweener shot was just what the doctor ordered.  […]

    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. It was surprising to see how much of it there was. People were calling him a failure and saying that his legacy was tarnished, labeling […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
