    Stat Line of the Night — 1/1/2014 — Jeremy Hill

    Jeremy Hill has been one of the most dynamic running backs throughout the 2013 college football season, and the LSU Tiger capped off his impressive campaign in style during Wednesday’s Outback Bowl against Iowa. Hill was handed the rock 28 times, and he turned that into 216 yards and two touchdowns during LSU’s 21-14 victory. […]

    It was on this day in 1988 that Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux scored five goals in five different ways.  Lemieux recorded a goal at even-strength, shorthanded, on the power-play, on a penalty shot and into an empty-net.

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/30/2013 — Jrue Holiday

    Tyreke Evans will receive plenty of the praise for the New Orleans Pelicans’ 110-108 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, and he should.  After all, he did sink the game-winning shot with 1.2 seconds remaining to cap off a 20-point performance. But it wasn’t just Evans who was leading the Pelicans on this […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/29/2013 — Peyton Manning

    Peyton Manning‘s 266-yard, four touchdown performance in just a single half of action during Sunday’s 34-14 victory over the Raiders was impressive, but this “Stat Line of the Night” has more to do with the Broncos quarterback’s stat line over the course of the entire 2013 season, rather than just a single game. In addition […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/26/2013 — Danny Green

    Every NBA player has those days when they simply can’t miss.  Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs is no exception. Taking on the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center, Green was perfect.  He made all seven of his field-goal attempts, including five from three-point land, and he also went 3-for-3 from the free-throw […]

    Skier Captures Horrifying Avalanche on GoPro (Video)

    Two Colorado skiers were recently at the East Vail Chutes backwoods, when the worst came close to happening. It was an avalanche, and luckily for the skier who got caught in it, his friend was there to find him and dig him out of the more than neck-deep snow he ended up buried under. And […]

    The Russians Have Mastered Twerking (Video)

    In the 1964 Cold War comedy Dr. Strangelove, George C.

The photographer/mountain biker/superhero in the video is Brendan Fairclough, who captured his awesome ride through a canyon at the Red Bull Rampage 2013 and uploaded it to […]

    Around this time of year, you can’t go to a sporting event without seeing at least one person dressed up as good old Santa Clause, whether it’s just some random fan in the crowd or someone the team has hired to make the fans merry.
