    Stat Line of the Night — 11/24/2013 — Philip Rivers

    This edition of the “Stat Line of the Night” could have went to Knowshon Moreno of the Broncos (230 total yards, one touchdown) or Josh Gordon of the Browns (17 receptions, 237 yards, one touchdown), but both of their brilliant performance came in a losing effort.  That leaves the door open for San Diego Charges […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/21/2013 — Jonathan Toews

    The Chicago Blackhawks may have been playing on the road against the Winnipeg Jets last night, but for Jonathan Toews it must have felt at least somewhat like a home game.  You see, Toews was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and if his performance is any indication, I’d say he had a little extra motivation for […]

    29 GIFs of Ridiculously Terrible Basketball Shots

    When it’s played well, basketball is graceful and beautiful and a joy to watch. And of course, when it is played poorly, it is downright ugly.

    Last night, during a Texas-sized battle between the Houston Rockets and the Dallas Mavericks, there were plenty of impressive lines filling the stat sheet.  Two of those lines belonged to Dwight Howard (33 pts, 11 reb) and Dirk Nowitzki (35 pts, 7 reb, 4 ast), but neither of them would earn “Stat Line of the […]
