    It was on this day in 1997 that Hartford Whalers owner Peter Karmanos officially announced that the team would be relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina, and be known as the Carolina Hurricanes. Karmanos was frustrated with the team’s poor attendance figures as well as a lack of corporate support, which prompted the move to North […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/5/2013 — Jean-Gabriel Pageau

    While most of us will probably remember Game 3 of the first round playoff series between the Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Canadiens for the ridiculous number of penalties that were handed out in the third period, Jean-Gabriel Pageau will always remember it as the game when he scored his first career NHL playoff goal and recorded […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 3rd) – Big Brown

    It was on this day in 2008 that Big Brown won the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby.  Big Brown entered the race as a 2-1 favorite and would defeat Eight Belles by four and three-quarter lengths.

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/2/2013 — Craig Anderson

    Hockey goaltenders that allow two goals against over the course of a 60 minutes game are rarely awarded the “Stat Line of the Night,” but there is always the occasional exception. Take Craig Anderson‘s performance during Game One of the Ottawa Senators’ first round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens, for example.  You see, while […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

      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 […]
