    Every NFL Team’s Biggest Celebrity Fan

    The NFL, as everyone knows, is the biggest pro sports league in the world. Sure, no one outside North America really knows anything about it, but 20 of the 30 most valuable sports franchises in the world are NFL teams, and all 32 teams are in the top 50. Even the Jaguars. So in economic […]

    14 Awesome NHL Player of the Game Trophies

    You may not have realized it if you don’t follow the NHL that closely (or if your team is no fun), but there’s a really awesome trend sweeping the league these days: player of the game trophies. I’m not talking about official awards handed out by media or the league. I’m talking about handmade and/or found items […]

    15 Biggest Season-Destroying Injuries of the 2013 NFL Season

    Every year, come the end of November, injuries become the biggest stories of the NFL season. This year is no exception. We’re now heading into Week 12, and once again it’s looking like half the playoff spots will go to the teams that manage to keep their biggest role players healthiest the longest. Today we’re […]

  • 11 NBA Mascots That Will Haunt Your Nightmares

    11 NBA Mascots That Will Haunt Your Nightmares

    Everybody loves a good mascot. Their zany antics are just what you need to keep things light when your team really sucks, or when you’re at the game with kids, or when you’ve run out of beer money. However, as we’ve seen before, there is a pretty fine line between “quirky and whimsical” and “freaky […]

  • 21 Awesome Punt Return GIFs

    21 Awesome Punt Return GIFs

    Earlier this week I was writing about the Rams’ shocking upset of the Colts, which turned on three huge plays from rookie Tavon Austin, one of which was a 98-yard punt return touchdown. And I asked myself, “what the hell is more exciting in a football game than a punt return touchdown?” Well, I thought […]

  • 8 NFL Players Who Have Been Arrested Since The Season Began

    8 NFL Players Who Have Been Arrested Since The Season Began

    The NFL is not enjoying a great year PR-wise. Not that it matters. Football is like crack to Americans, so it’s no big deal that Aaron Hernandez is arrested for having murdered over 52,000 people, Richie Incognito is threatening to steal Mel Gibson’s title of America’s Sweetheart, and Pacman Jones is still allowed to live […]

  • The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that. I think the regular fights we see today—the ones where guys agree to fight each ahead of time, for no reason, and then throw down as soon as the puck drops—those […]

  • 15 of the Biggest Racist D-Bags in Sports History

    15 of the Biggest Racist D-Bags in Sports History

    Somehow, since this whole Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin story broke last week, the conversation seems to have shifted from the subject of racism to the subject of bullying and the overly machismo culture of NFL locker rooms. Is this discussion important to have? Of course it is. But to be quite honest, I still am not […]

  • 9 Most Overpaid Coaches in College Football Right Now

    9 Most Overpaid Coaches in College Football Right Now

    This week, USA Today released their annual list of the highest-paid coaches in college football. The results, as always, were interesting. There are 17 coaches making $3 million or more. There are 50 making $2 million or more. And there are only 22 making less than $500,000. So yeah, coaching college football pays pretty well. […]

  • 21 Ridiculous Football Flopping GIFs

    21 Ridiculous Football Flopping GIFs

    To be honest with you, I never really thought this list would be possible. Flopping? In football? American football? “Ridiculous,” I would have said in 1990…if I weren’t just a kid. But alas, unless you’ve been living under a rock (and that rock doesn’t have the NFL Network), you know that flopping has become a […]

  • The 30 Most Iconic Hairdos in NBA History

    The 30 Most Iconic Hairdos in NBA History

    Last Wednesday, Allen Iverson announced his retirement from the NBA, making official what had been unofficial for three whole years. Most people, of course, will miss Iverson’s killer crossover, his clutch shooting, and his insane determination to win. And that’s fine. But me? I’m going to miss his sweet hair. Sure, technically the NBA is losing an […]

  • 9 Reasons LeBron James Should Go Back to Cleveland

    9 Reasons LeBron James Should Go Back to Cleveland

    The 2013-14 NBA season underway, and there are lots of interesting storylines to follow. Will the Miami Heat three-peat? Will the return of Derrick Rose make the Bulls serious contenders? Will Stephen Curry and the Warriors take the next step? Can Kevin Durant keep the Thunder going all by himself while Russell Westbrook recuperates? Will […]

  • 9 Most Insufferable Things About “Red Sox Nation”

    9 Most Insufferable Things About “Red Sox Nation”

    It’s safe to say that there’s no fan base that comes close to getting the attention of (and making as much noise as) Red Sox Nation. It’s like if Packers fans won the lottery, moved to Miami, and got a reality show. And the recent championship for Boston means that these guys aren’t going anywhere […]

    25 GIFs That Will Make You Hate The Miami Heat More Than You Do Already

    Well, the 2013-14 NBA season is officially underway, and everyone is pretty excited. There’s just one problem: LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the favorites to win it all. Again. Does that thought put a scowl on your face? Yeah, you’re not alone. For a variety of reasons, the Miami Heat are one of the […]

    35 Sexy NFL Cheerleader Halloween Costumes [2013 Edition]

    There are a handful of things you can count on to happen every year around this time. One, you will eat way more candy in a five-day period than any grown adult ever should. Two, Hollywood will release a handful of hastily-put-together horror movie sequels. Three, the hardworking cheerleading squads of the NFL will don […]
