    18 GIFs of Sports Fans Flipping the Bird

    Sports provide us with a nice diversion for the worries of everyday life, but of course sometimes we all get a little carried away. One bad call, one bone-headed play, or one epic flop, and all of a sudden we’re a bunch of angry douchebags doing things we would never do in “real” life. For […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 2nd) — Lou Gehrig

    It was on this day in 1939 that Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games streak ended.  The streak was halted at 2,130 after Gehrig sat out a game against the Detroit Tigers, which the Yankees would go on to win by a score of 22-2. Gehrig’s consecutive games streak would be one of his greatest achievements and […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/1/2013 — Jordan Zimmerman

    Shutting down the Atlanta Braves’ potent line-up is no easy task, but don’t tell that to Washington Nationals pitcher, Jordan Zimmermann.  He was able to do just that during last night’s game at Turner Field, and he actually made it look quite easy. Zimmermann would allow a single in the first inning and a double […]

    Lingerie Football Team Hotness Index 2013

    Does the Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, have some talented athletes? It absolutely does. For example, there is Philadelphia’s Marirose Roach, who is actually a gifted football player with a serious love for the game. That being said, the league does not really exist to showcase female football talent. This is “sports entertainment,” and putting […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 1st) — Ricky Henderson

    It was on this day in 1991 that Ricky Henderson stole the 939th base of his Major League career.  That broke Lou Brock’s previous record of 938 stolen bases, giving Ricky the new MLB record. Henderson was the most prolific base stealer to ever play in the Majors, as he led the MLB in steals […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/30/2013 — Alexander Steen

    The St. Louis Blues entered Game One of their first round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings having lost each of the last eight meetings between these two teams.  That streak of futility dates back to last year’s second round playoff series, where the Blues were swept in four straight by the eventual Stanley […]

    20 Longest Active Playoff Streaks in Pro Sports

    Earlier this year, the Miami Heat fell just six games short of breaking the NBA’s record for longest winning streaks. Was that an impressive accomplishment? Absolutely it was. A team doesn’t win 27 games in a row without being extremely deep and talented. However, while you wouldn’t expect them to put together another historic winning […]

    This Day In Sports History (April 30th) — Monica Seles

    It was on this day in 1993 that Monica Seles was stabbed in the back by an obsessed fan during her quarterfinal match against Magdalena Maleeva.  The incident occurred in Hamburg, Germany at the Citizen Cup tournament. Monica Seles entered the 1993 season as the world’s top ranked female player.  She was the three-time reigning […]

      Even with Russell Westbrook out of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s line-up, the Houston Rockets still don’t stand much of a chance of coming back from 3-0 down to win their best-of-seven series against the Western Conference’s top-ranked team.  But they can at least make things interesting with a few victories, and they got one […]

    The Likelihood of Each of the 16 NHL Playoff Teams Winning the Cup

    After a strange, lockout-shortened regular season, the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs get underway Tuesday night. So who will win the greatest championship tournament in pro sports? Well, I personally am against making straight forward predictions. One of the best things about sports and one of the reasons we get so worked up about it is […]

    This Day In Sports History (April 29th) – Roger Clemens

    It was on this day in 1986 that Roger Clemens became the first pitcher in MLB history to strikeout 20 batters in a nine inning major league game.  Clemens accomplished the feat against the Seattle Mariners in a game played at Fenway Park. Clemens would achieve this mark in only his third full season, at […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/28/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    When Clayton Kershaw won the Cy Young award back in 2011, he put together a 21-5 record to go along with a 2.28 ERA.  He still has a long way to go if he hopes to replicate that success in 2013, but after yesterday’s performance against the Milwaukee Brewers, he appears to be well on […]
