    This Day In Sports History (May 12th) – New York Knicks

    It was on this day in 1985 that the NBA held its first ever Draft Lottery.  The New York Knicks won the lottery and would go on to select Patrick Ewing out of Georgetown University with the#1 overall pick. Ewing was a superstar at Georgetown, as they reached the championship game of the NCAA tournament […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/11/11 — Dwyane Wade

    Game Five last night between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics may have very well marked the passing of the torch from one “Big Three” to another.  After acquiring Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen during the summer of 2007, the Celtics “Big Three,” which also includes Paul Pierce, dominated the Eastern Conference for the […]

    Picture Of The Day: Watch The Eyes Ref!

    During Monday’s game between Slovakia and Denmark at the 2011 IIHF World Hockey Championships, Miroslav Satan and Jesper Jensen (you can guess which one is Slovakian and which is Danish) mixed it up after the whistle, leading to this rather vicious eye-gouge from one of the linesmen.  I guess with so little fighting taking place […]

    7 Famous Athletes Who ‘Dated’ Porn Stars

    No one is surprised by the coupling of athletes and porn stars. They’re both performers, they’re both (largely) fit and attractive, and they’re both kinda famous. Rather, I was surprised by how FEW instances there were of relationships or even liaisons between the two professions. In fact, two of the entrants on this list have […]

    Cops On Horses Play Basketball At Ohio University’s Palmerfest (Video)

    Palmerfest, an annual block party held on Palmer Street near Ohio University, has gotten out of hand at times over the past few years, as students light couches on fire and riot with police and fire fighters.  This year’s event was said to be a somewhat uneventful one, as increased police presence and a continuous […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/10/11 — Valtteri Filppula

    Through the first 50 minutes of Game 6 last night between the San Jose Sharks and the Detroit Red Wings, Antti Niemi was busy making a strong case for our “Stat Line of the Night.”  The Sharks goaltender was easily the busier of the two netminders, as he continued to frustrate the Red Wings’ shooters, […]

    High School Lacrosse Player Scores 80-Yard Goal (Video)

    With only 20 seconds remaining in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference boys’ lacrosse championship game, Matt Borda of Gonzaga College High School was looking to waste time with his team leading by a goal.  Little did he know that his 80-yard pass/dump into Good Counsel’s zone would somehow find the back of the net, giving […]

    Ines Sainz Thinks Michael Irvin Is Michael Vick…And A Boxer (Video)

    Last weekend’s boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Gardens Arena in Las Vegas brought out some big name sports reporters, celebrities and athletes. Among the big name sports reporters was the always sexy Ines Sainz.  As for the athletes, Michael Irvin was among the many, however, if you ask […]

    Picture Of The Day: Guess Who Won This Battle?

    Unless there is a couple quarts of blood blending in perfectly with his karate gi, I think it is fair to say that the man in the red uniform won this battle/tournament/beatdown rather easily.  As for his opponents, I don’t believe I have ever seen a more demoralized bunch in my life.  The depressed look […]

    9 of the Most Charitable Athletes of All Time

    Professional athletes worked hard to get where they are, and they continue to work hard day in and day out to stay on top of their game. However, the guy who picks up my garbage works pretty damn hard, too. Same goes for the dude who drives the bus down my street and the lady […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/9/11 — LeBron James

    After leaving Miami with a 2-0 series lead, the Miami Heat did not want to return to the friendly confines of American Airlines Arena with the series tied at 2-2.  In order to prevent such a scenario from happening, they would need to win Game 4 on the road in Boston. They did just that, […]

    Man With No Arms Or Legs Throws Out Opening Pitch In Japan (Video)

    This clip is amazing, awe-inspiring and hilarious all in one. During a Japanese League baseball game on May 6th between Seibu and Rakuten, sportswriter Hirotada Ototake threw out the opening pitch.  What makes this both amazing and awe-inspiring is the fact that Ototake was born with no arms or legs.  He is popular in his […]

    11 Popular Pop Songs That Name-Check Athletes

    Sports and music go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Both professions garner notoriety, breed a culture of financial indiscretion, and both are just kind of awesome. So it’s no wonder that the two bleed together, like when LeBron James refused to acknowledge a beef with DeShawn Stevenson, saying that would be like “Jay-Z getting […]
