    9 Most Memorable One-Game Playoffs And Tie Breakers In MLB History

    “One-game playoff” or “tie-breaker?” The nomenclature here can get a little confusing, so let’s clear things up before we get into the best examples in baseball history. However, because either term is basically an instance of the regular season failing us (How DARE you, regular season?), the device can be a little convoluted. All one-game […]

    9 Worst College Football Coaching Hires of the BCS Era

    On Sunday, USC athletic director Pat Haden announced that USC had fired coach Lane Kiffin after an embarrassing 62-41 loss to Arizona State.

    Yesterday it was announced that Allan Huber “Bud” Selig, the commissioner of Major League Baseball since 1992, will be retiring at the end of the 2014 season. This is big news.

    25 Athlete-Celebrity Power Couples

    It’s not easy being married or otherwise romantically attached to a professional athlete. Or at least, I assume it’s not. I’ve never dated one. Sure, they usually make lots of money, but they basically are required to be workaholics, and during the season (whichever sport we’re talking about) they’re away from home half the time. […]
