    9 Most Delusional NFL Fanbases

    All serious sports fans are delusional to some extent. Do you think that anyone put any rational thoughts into being a Winnipeg Jets or Charlotte Bobcats fan? No, of course not.

    9 Most Shocking Coach Firings of All Time

    In the wake of the NFL’s “Black Monday,” where seven NFL head coaches rang in 2013 on the unemployment line the mind wanders to silver linings, assurances to the losers that as bad as it is, they could have lost a lot worse. To anyone that thought Andy Reid’s let go was unfair, or that […]

    It’s that time of year again! And by that, I mean it’s time for professional cheerleaders to dust off their holiday outfits.

    15 Pro Athletes Who Joined the Enemy

    It’s one thing when one of your favorite athletes leaves your team. It’s another thing altogether when he leaves and goes to your most hated enemy.
