    21 Greatest Peyton Manning Commercials

    Yesterday, as you may have read somewhere, Gatorade unveiled a new series of commercials starring Peyton Manning as a gas station manager who refuses to sell gatorade to anyone unless they’ve broken a sweat and, therefore, earned it—because “Gatorade is for guys and gals who sweat.” Of course, this is just Peyton’s latest effort in one […]

    Pinch Pitchers: Every MLB Position Player to Take the Mound in 2014

    It’s never fun to see your team get blown out—unless it’s baseball, and your team runs out of pitchers before the game is over. Then it actually is kind of fun, because you get to see a position player pitch. I bring all this up because, in case you haven’t noticed, 2014 has been a historic […]

    13 Sports Teams Named After Sharks

    In case you didn’t realize it, it’s Shark Week.You should have realized it, of course, because it’s basically the third-best week of the year after the week between Christmas and New Years and spring break. But I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you’ve been really busy at work, or you belong to some weird […]

    40 Ridiculous Athlete Food Products

    Everyone knows one of the best things about being a professional athlete is getting the to create your very own food products with your likeness on the label. It’s pretty much what every little kid dreams of (right after all the money, cars, houses, and women). Of course, not every pro athlete gets a condiment with his picture on the label. […]

  • 21 Crazy Minor League Baseball Jerseys

    21 Crazy Minor League Baseball Jerseys

    Minor league baseball teams have been coming up with crazy ballpark promotions since the dawn of time. However, right now, we are in the middle of a golden age of wacky jerseys.  Major league ball clubs can’t just wear all kinds of goofy promotional jerseys, of course, because it would hurt their brand. But minor league clubs? With […]

  • 20 Cheerleaders Who Dated Athletes

    20 Cheerleaders Who Dated Athletes

    It should come as a surprise to no one that cheerleaders date and sometimes marry athletes. Cheerleaders are hot, athletes are hot, and they’re around each other all the time. It’s actually surprising that there aren’t more cheerleader-athlete hookups. When I decided to do this list, I assumed I’d find more such relationships than I could handle. […]

    Did you here the news? After four years of wearing no. 6 in South Beach, LeBron is going to wear his old no. 23 again when he takes the court for Cleveland in the fall. That means the good people of Cleveland will not have to be reminded that James went to Miami and won two championships for […]

    9 Winningest NASCAR Drivers of the Modern Era

    Yesterday, Jeff Gordon won his fifth Brickyard 400, becoming the first person in NASCAR history to win five races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and tying him with Formula One’s Michael Schumacher as the only other person in any racing discipline to do so. However, the win in Indianapolis was more than just a somewhat arbitrary record. […]

    Beer & Sports: 33 Awesome GIFs

    Life is full of winning combinations—spaghetti & meatballs, peanut butter & jelly, ice cream trucks & hot summer days, christmas & eggnog. However, my personal favorite combo is beer & sports. I don’t know what it is, but there is no more satisfying place to enjoy a nice cold one than a sporting event. Baseball is my favorite beer sport, but I […]

  • 11 Sports Reporters Who Dated Athletes

    11 Sports Reporters Who Dated Athletes

    In the world of journalism, covering sports isn’t as important as covering wars, elections, natural disasters, or celebrity meltdowns. However, you still want your coverage to be as unbiased as possible. And that means it’s usually preferable if the sports reporters don’t shack up with the athletes. Nevertheless, sports reporter-athlete hookups are pretty much inevitable. Any time […]

    The 10 Worst Baseball Movies of All Time

    No American sport is more romanticized than baseball, which is why baseball makes such a fantastic subject for movies. The audience is already primed to accept the dramatic narrative. All the filmmakers have to do is not blow it. Sadly, many filmmakers do blow it. For every classic baseball film out there—your Bull Durhams, your […]

    15 Hottest MLB All-Star WAGs of 2014

    Getting picked for the MLB All-Star Game isn’t as big a deal as it used to be now that 75 guys make the team every year and the thing is managed like a company softball game. (Everybody gets a turn, you guys!) And while I’ve tried in to get MLB to make some tweaks that would breath new […]

    9 Best Soccer Players to Never Win the World Cup

    Well, Argentina lost to Germany in extra time of the finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

    The 15 Best Goals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup

    Goals have not been in short supply at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. So far 167 of them have been scored, and there are still two games left to play. That’s just four shy of the all-time record set back in 1998. However, Brazil 2014 won’t just be remembered for the quantity of goals scored. […]

    30 Hottest Female Fans Spotted at the 2014 FIFA World Cup

    The 2014 FIFA World Cup has given us a lot of exciting moments over the last four weeks. However, let’s not pretend that it hasn’t given us some pretty dull moments as well, because this is soccer we’re talking about, and there are always a few dull moments. So what did the soccer fans of world […]
