    10 Biggest FIFA Scandals of the Sepp Blatter Era

    Wednesday’s arrest and indictment of nine FIFA official on corruption charges shocked the sports world—but not because everybody thought soccer’s international governing body was so pure and innocent. FIFA scandals involving allegations of bribery and racketeering have been plaguing the beautiful game for decades. What was shocking about Wednesday’s turn of events was that, finally, somebody […]

    9 Greatest LeBron James Playoff Performances

    Today we’re going to have a little talk about LeBron James playoff performances. Or, to be more specific, the idea that there aren’t as many legendary LeBron James playoff performances as there are legendary Michael Jordan playoff performances. Because that idea is nonsense. Yes, MJ was sublime. Yes, he won six rings. But LeBron is now […]

    15 Highest Paid Coaches by Sport

    Last week, the Toronto Maple Leafs made history when they signed Mike Babcock away from the Detroit Red Wings. The historic 8-year, $50 million contract doesn’t just make him one of the highest paid coaches in the NHL. It makes him one of the highest paid coaches in sports, period. Today, in honor of Mike Babcock’s […]

  • 9 Most Iconic Sports Injuries of All Time

    9 Most Iconic Sports Injuries of All Time

    We could make a list hundreds of entries long that show the most graphic videos of injuries on the field. It would be pretty awful, honestly. So while this list takes inventory of in-game sports injuries, it doesn’t feature the terrible Paul George-type things that make you walk around all pale for the next four hours. Rather, […]

    Top 10 Letterman Top 10s Read by Athletes

    The Letterman Top 10 is one of the most iconic bits in the history of television. And over the last 33 years, a number of famous (and not-so-famous) athletes have had the honor taking part in it. Of course, most of them were pretty forgettable, because athletes are usually pretty terrible comedians. But there were exceptions, […]

    17 Thirsty Athletes Caught Staring at Gorgeous Women

    Today we’re going to take a look at thirsty athletes caught staring at gorgeous women. The point is not to shame them, though.

    American Pharaoh has taken the Preakness and the Kentucky Derby titles, so all that’s left to join the ranks of Triple Crown-winning horses is a win at the Belmont in New York. Should American Pharaoh be able to defeat the field there, he will join 11 other curiously named fellas in the annals of horseracing history. However, knocking down […]

    35 GIFs of NBA Fans at Their Best (and Worst)

    If I had to rank the fans of the four major North American pro sports leagues from most awesome to least awesome—and I don’t—I’d probably put NBA fans at the top of the list. They’re still not in the same league as college basketball and football fans, who are mostly college students and therefore expected to […]

  • The 23 Greatest NBA Playoff Buzzer-Beaters of All Time

    The 23 Greatest NBA Playoff Buzzer-Beaters of All Time

    Ask any NBA fan and they’ll tell you few things in life are more exciting than playoff buzzer-beaters. Clutch shots under enormous pressure on the game’s biggest stage? What more could you possibly want? Of course, not all playoff buzzer-beaters are created equal. Sometimes the defense blows it and your guy gets wide open for an easy trey. And sometimes your guy […]

  • 9 Reasons Tom Brady Should Forget All About Deflategate

    9 Reasons Tom Brady Should Forget All About Deflategate

    Last week we got a shocking reminder that Deflategate was a thing that still existed, despite the fact that the general public and football fans didn’t really care any more. An “independent” report, commissioned by the league found a number of things, and threw a bunch of stats and studies our way, but the big takeaway was that […]

    21 Best Athlete Movie Cameos of All Time

    Athletes tend to make terrible actors. Sure, there are a few who’ve managed to become legitimately successful in Hollywood—like Jason Lee, or Terry Crews—but they are the exceptions. For the most part, if you get paid to play sports but you also want to be in movies, you’re going to have to settle for athlete […]

    9 Ways Boxing Can Save Itself and Become Relevant Again

    For umpteenth time in a row, a high-profile boxing match left most fans a little disappointed.

However, this was the biggest letdown in a recent […]

    15 Things Floyd Mayweather Can Buy With His $180 Million Payday

    On Saturday night, Floyd “Money” Mayweather earned another $180 million dollars to maintain the legitimacy of his nickname. And the crazy thing it, he didn’t need to beat Manny Pacquiao to do it. Floyd Mayweather would have taken home that purse even if he had lost the fight. Anyone can see that’s an insane amount of money, but […]
