    This Day In Sports History (May 20th) — Mike Piazza

    It was on this day in 2008 that Oakland Athletics catcher Mike Piazza officially announced his retirement.  Piazza was somewhat forced into retirement, as no team offered him a contract for the 2008 season. Piazza began his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he would spend his first seven seasons, taking home the National […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/19/2013 — Miguel Cabrera

    It’s not often that we award the “Stat Line of the Night” to a player on the losing team, but it also isn’t everyday that you see a Major Leaguer put together a three-home-run game in a losing effort.  That is exactly what Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers did last night, as he went […]

    9 Crazy Fans from the 2013 NBA Playoffs

    The word “fan” is a shortened form of the word “fanatic,” so it stands to reason that sports fans are pretty crazy. But there’s always a few in the bunch that take their crazy fan antics above an beyond the norm. Add the playoffs to the mix, and you’re bound to see some pretty weird […]

    Check Out This Incredible Office Hole-In-One Putt (Video)

    Setting up an elaborate mini putt course at the office? Sounds like a great idea for a Friday afternoon when the boss is away. I’m sure it’s been done many times. However, most of the time the employees aren’t going to goof off and then post the footage on YouTube. It’s a sure-fire way to […]

    This Video of an Acrobatic Rodeo Clown Will Make Your Day (Video)

    I always thought rodeo clowns were like the cheerleaders of rodeos, just there to distract the bulls when riders fall and then keep the crowd entertained in between events. However, it turns out that they actually have rodeo clown competitions at rodeos now. They call such events “freestyle bullfighting,” but basically they’re just guys dressed […]

    It was on this day in 1998 that David Wells pitched the 15th perfect game in baseball history.  Wells accomplished the feat against the Minnesota Twins in a game played at Yankee stadium.

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/16/2013 — Zdeno Chara

    Zdeno Chara’s biggest impact on a hockey game is usually his defensive play and his physicality, however, he has been getting the job done in the offensive zone as well thus far this post-season, and he continued that trend during Game One of the Bruins’ second-round series against the New York Rangers. Chara opened the […]

    The 13 Best Game 7s in the History of the Stanley Cup Playoffs

    This week we were treated to two Game 7s in the Stanely Cup Playoffs. One of them was between the Rangers and Capitals; the other was between the Bruins and Leafs. And while the former was a boring blowout—sorry, Capitals fans—the latter, on first glance, was an all-time classic. Or at least it that’s how […]

    Viktor Troicki Has a Tennis Tirade for the Ages at the Rome Masters (Video)

    Tennis tirades are fairly common. Unlike team sports, where responsibility for wins and losses is shared, in tennis all the pressure falls on one person. And, quite understandably, sometimes they buckle. That being said, some players have become legends for taking tirades to another level. John McEnroe is obviously the best example, and Serena Williams […]

    Dunk Fail: Florida Student’s Jam Goes Horribly Wrong (Video)

    Most NBA players make dunking a basketball look so easy, but believe me when I tell you that it’s not.  In addition to being tall enough with a high enough vertical to actually reach the basket in the first place, you also have to be able to grip the ball with one hand and your timing has […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 16th) — Michael Jordan

    It was on this day in 1985 that Michael Jordan was named the NBA rookie of the year.  He would beat out the likes of Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, Sam Perkins and Sam Bowie to win the prestigious award. Jordan averaged an incredible 28.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.4 steals per game that […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/15/2013 — Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies had the opportunity to close out their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five last night.  Doing so would earn them a spot in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history, and that is exactly what they did. Leading the way for the Grizzlies was […]

    Dude Catches a Bird With His Hand (Video)

    Real or fake? That is the first question that comes to mind while watching this video of some dude catching a bird with his bare hands.  Either way, I’m impressed. If it’s real, my reason for being impressed is quite obvious, as catching (not swatting, Manu) a bird with one’s bare hand is something I […]

    Women’s Arm Wrestler Screams Like a Maniac (Video)

    Did you know there actually are arm wrestling competitions? Because I didn’t. I thought they only existed in the make-believe world of the classic Sylvester Stallone film, Over the Top. But I was wrong. There is such a thing as competitive arm wrestling. In fact, the 2013 European Arm Wrestling Championships were held from May 8-11 in […]
