    9 Insane Sports of the Ancient World

    The sports that we decry as violent today really aren’t so bad in the context of historical competitions. Sure, a fat drunk Phillies fan threw up on a little girl, but, on the bright side, at least he didn’t ritualistically sacrifice her to the baseball gods. Football might be facing a concussion crisis, but until […]

    Roy Jones Got Knocked The F*ck Out On Saturday (Video)

    This weekend boxing fans witnessed the tale of two fighters in their 40s who stepped into the ring and experienced two completely different outcomes.  At one end of the spectrum we have Bernard Hopkins, who became the oldest boxer to ever win a championship title at the age of 46 when he defeated Canadian Jean […]

    Bo-Taoshi Is My New Favorite Sport (Video)

    The clip below will likely have you asking yourself two questions: What is Bo-Taoshi and why have I never seen this amazing sport before? In response to the first question, Bo-Taoshi is a game played between two teams of 75 individuals.  The role of the team on defense is to protect a giant pole that […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/22/11 — Henrik Sedin

    After taking a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference Finals series against the San Jose Sharks, the Vancouver Canucks did not want to return home after yesterday’s game with the series tied up at 2-2.  That meant they would have to put together a spirited performance in Game 4 and they did just that, led […]

    Deja Vu (GIF)

    For those still wondering, no, these two side-by-side clips are not of the same goal.  Instead, they are two different goals cored by Finland’s Jarkko Immonen during a IIHF World Championship game against Norway that look exactly alike.  Both came in the second period, with the first tying the game at 1-1 and the second […]

    Picture Of The Day: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    So let me get this straight.  Whoever created this chart, which analyzes balls in sports, is trying to tell me that basketball players and bowlers have bigger balls than football players? Bowlers?  Seriously?  And where does the soccer ball fit into this entire equation?  Even their ball is bigger than a football.  I’m not sure […]

    Steady, Steady, Steady…(GIF)

    Some people might say that this girl has terrible balance, but I would argue that her balance is actually quite extraordinary.  After all, there aren’t many people who could flail around on a balance beam like that, but somehow avoid falling off it.  You might call this gif a “blooper” or “fail,” but in my […]

    Picture Of The Day: Need A Spot?

    There are some women whose presence in a gym are enough to make me scrap my entire workout just so I can get a closer look at them.  This woman would certainly fall into that category.  Sure, I may have originally planned on working out my chest muscles, but if she is going to be […]

    Pam Oliver Went Through A 3-Year Dry-Spell At ESPN

    While several excerpts from the book “ESPN: Those Guys Have All The Fun” has made it seem as though just about everyone at the “Worldwide Leader in Sports” was “getting some,” that was clearly not the case for Pam Oliver during her time with the network. During an interview with one of the authors of […]

    Picture Of The Day: Indy 500 Planking

    With rain washing out some of this week’s practice runs leading up to Sunday’s much anticipated Indy 500, many of the drivers took to their garages to take part in a competition that has seemingly captured the attention of most IndyCar teams and drivers. It’s called “planking,” and according to Wikipedia, it involves “the action […]

    Macho Man Randy Savage Dies In Car Accident

    Professional wrestling has lost one of its greatest legends today as Macho Man Randy Savage died following a car accident in Tampa, Florida.

    9 Greatest Athlete Music Video Cameos

    Nothing gets my “inessential cross-promotion” engine going like a good athlete cameo in anything, be it TV show, film, or music video. Music videos are the best avenue for athletes because the allow them to appear their athlet-iest, looking like big shots, wearing sunglasses indoors, and just looking awesome. And athletes like their cameos cause […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/19/11 — Jason Giambi

    It has been a while since Jason Giambi’s glory days with the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics, but for those who are unaware, the 40-year-old is still kicking around the Majors with the Colorado Rockies, and it appears as though he still has some power left in that bat of his. With Todd Helton […]

    Watch Terrell’s Leg Snap Like A Twig (Video)

    There are two incredible things about this clip. First is the break.  We have seen some nasty ones in the game of soccer recently, but I don’t believe that any were worse than what Terrell experienced here.  I almost puked when I watched this for the first time, and I was still a little nauseous […]
