    9 Worst Pre-Game and Halftime Gimmicks

    While sporting events are always intended to be spectacles to be embraced by fans and non-fans alike, it’s easy to get carried away and offer up some pretty asinine pre-game and halftime ceremonies (some official, some…not) that just make everyone groan.

    The 9 Most Annoying Players In The NHL

    They’re not the worst guys in the NHL (though there might be a little overlap), and they’re not necessarily the best defenders, but their combination of energy, tenacity, and a general predilection towards disruption makes these entrants the pests of the league. So without further ado or ceremony, in tribute to Mr. Esa Tikkanen, let’s […]

    12 Awesome Sports Fan Halloween Costumes

    Well, Halloween is here again. If you’re like me (i.e., a grown man), then chances are the only reason you’re even considering dressing up this year is because you want to go a costume party where there will be a bunch of chicks dressed up as “slutty nurses” or “slutty cops” or…well, pretty much “slutty” […]

    I’m not really sure what gave me the idea to do a list of the hottest female pro cyclists out there. Maybe it’s just because hottest female anything always goes over well. Maybe it was something I saw on TV. Or maybe I saw a hot girl riding a bike on my way to work […]

    A lot of people like to talk about how the rampant use of steroids in baseball during the 1990s and early 2000s tarnished records and ruined the sanctity of “America’s pastime.” But of course, the reality is that baseball players—and all athletes, actually—have been cheating since…um, forever.

    11 Athletes Who Lied About Their Age

    In high-level sports, age matters. What’s interesting, though, is that the way it matters and why depend on the sport. In soccer, for example, players lie and make themselves younger so as to compete in youth-only competitions. In baseball, on the hand, players want to be younger, but not so as to compete against kids, […]
