    15 of the Most Influential Women in Sports

    Every once in a while, we hear about how women’s sports are growing faster than ever.

I […]

    11 Most Dominant Championship Runs in NBA History

    We’re almost halfway through the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and so far the San Antonio Spurs have yet to lose a game. In fact, going back to the end of the regular season, they’ve won 18 straight. That’s what I call hot. If the Spurs maintain their dominant play, they have a chance of joining some […]

    15 Pro Athletes Who Could Be Playing Other Sports

    Most of us sitting on the couch watching pro sports at home can’t imagine what it would be like to be so good at a sport that someone would actually pay us to play it. And I’m not saying, “we can’t imagine being LeBron.” I’m saying, “we can’t even imagine what it would be like […]

    9 Classic Sports Conspiracy Theories

    You gotta love the versatility of sports. When things go the way we want, it’s exhilarating, incredible, inspiring, and heartwarming. When things don’t go the way we want, it’s boring, depressing, disenchanting, and heartbreaking. In either case, sports fans tend to lose their minds a little bit. In victory, people jump up and down, hug […]

    21 Epic Sports Nut Shots (GIFs)

    There are a lot of ways to get injured playing sports. And sometimes, the injuries can be pretty weird. But the mother of all sports injuries is the dreaded nut shot. It usually doesn’t leave any permanent damage—well, not physical damage; psychological maybe—but in terms of shear pain there is no comparison. Personally, I’d rather tear […]

    11 Classy Baseball Wives of the 50s and 60s

    It’s always seemed to me that baseball wives of the 1950s and 60s, in addition to being beautiful, were so classy and dignified when compared to the baseball wives of today. But I kind of figured this was probably a false perception—chalk it up to black and white still photography and the mystique of “the […]

  • 11 Pro Athletes Turned Team Owners

    11 Pro Athletes Turned Team Owners

    Do athletes make good team owners? Well, at the very least, pro athletes (successful ones, anyway) do gain a certain kind of experience that very few people have. They know what it feels like to win and, theoretically, what it takes to win. Moreover, you would think that, having played themselves, they could bridge any […]

    9 Terrifying Cases Of Athletes Who Were Attacked By Animals

    Top athletes often have to overcome obstacles and endure hardships to succeed. That, of course, is why we often find them so inspirational. But it’s one thing to have to overcome disease, heartbreak, car crashes, or some other horrible thing that regular people experience every day. It’s quite another to have to overcome out-of-the-blue attacks […]

    22 Weird (And Funny) Baseball GIFs

    I love baseball, but I’ll be the first to admit that, when you think about it, it’s a pretty weird game. For starters, there’s no clock, so the game moves about as fast as the pitcher and manager want it to. Which can be pretty slow. And, unlike most pro sports, but very much like […]

    Every year on the first Saturday of May, millions of people who otherwise have no interest in horse racing suddenly become captivated by so-called “most exciting two minutes in sports”—the Kentucky Derby.

    16 Celebrities Who Own Sports Teams

    UPDATE: Celebrities just can’t stop buying sports teams. Maybe it’s because of the prestige involved, or because sports teams (at least the successful ones) have a way of making a decent amount of money, which makes them what financial experts refer to as “a good investment.” So with plenty of celebs putting down money on […]

    I love soccer. Always have. That’s why I wish the old European dudes who oversee the world’s most popular sport would make it easier for me to defend “the beautiful game” to the haters here in North America by coming down hard on dives. You see, it’s hard to make a case for the game […]
