    Sochi Is Hilariously Unprepared to Host the Winter Olympics (Photos)

    Let’s start with the good news: the main athletic complex and all the venues for the 2014 Winter Olympics seem to be sparkling and ready to go, and they certainly look impressive. From there, however, it’s all downhill. The Athlete’s Village? That’s ready. But the Olympians had better not be expecting deluxe accommodations. The rooms […]

    With the start of the Olympics right around the corner, you know that Steve Yzerman, Mike Babcock and the rest of the Team Canada coaching staff will be keeping a close eye on their goaltending situation. Perhaps the one goaltender they’ll be watching closest is Montreal Canadiens netminder Carey Price.  And if they were watching […]

    The 25 Funniest Broncos Super Bowl Memes

    Just as soon as the Seahawks were done thrashing the poor Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII—or probably before—the internet got to work making  memes for people to post on their Facebook timelines, just like it always does.

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/3/2014 — Patrick Kane

    Patrick Kane was playing last night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with a heavy heart after learning that his grandfather had passed moments before taking the ice at the Staples Center.  But that heavy heart would not weigh Kane down on this night.  Rather, it would propel him to a three-point performance, as the […]

    The 9 Biggest Super Bowl Blowouts of All-Time

    I don’t know about you, but last night my Facebook newsfeed was completely dominated by people whining about Super Bowl XLVIII. The gist of these complaints? That this was the “worst” and/or “most boring” Super Bowl ever.  Now, my immediate reaction to these complaints was that none of these people remembered the 80s and 90s, […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/2/2014 — Malcolm Smith

    One day after the Super Bowl you were probably expecting to see Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson, or maybe even Marshawn Lynch‘s name here. Rather, it’s Malcolm Smith who receives the honors, as his fumble recovery, interception for a touchdown, and 10 tackles were a key factor in the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 blowout victory over the […]

    The 11 Best Quarterbacks Never to Win a Super Bowl

    So far 30 different quarterbacks have won the Super Bowl. Some of them—like Montana, Unitas, Bradshaw, Manning, and Brady—are NFL legends. Others—like Plunkett, Williams, Dilfer, and Johnson—are not. If Denver wins Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, Peyton Manning will have his second championship. However, if Seattle wins this exclusive club will induct a new member […]

    Not many teams have gone into Indianapolis to play the Pacers and come out with a victory—only one heading into Thursday’s action, to be exact.  And the Phoenix Suns would become the second thanks to the solid play of Goran Dragic. Taking on the Eastern Conference’s top team, Dragic drained a game-high 28 points to […]

    Middle School Basketball Player Tries to Poison Visiting Team with Bleach

    How’s this for disturbing? Apparently a middle school basketball player in Gaffney, South Carolina, has been “disciplined” by his school district after spiking an opposing team’s Gatorade with bleach. Oh, don’t worry. It was only a capful of bleach dumped into an entire jug, so nobody had to go to the hospital. The only symptoms […]
