    9 Of The Worst Beatings in Boxing/MMA History

    In honor of Mark Hominick’s acquisition of a gigantic forehead this past weekend, here’s a collection of some of the worst beatings in the history of fighting sports. Of course, I’m sure worse beatings have been both doled out and taken, but we wanted to give you, dear reader, graphic evidence of these beatings. Plus, […]

  • 9 Greatest Fictional Athletes

    9 Greatest Fictional Athletes

    Real athletes are okay, I guess. But I don’t like to relegate myself to the world of non-fiction when selecting the greatest of all time. There are just too many great athletes that benefit from cuts, favorable editing, and many other tricks of the trade in order to rise above the realm of reality to […]

    9 BestWorst Draft Day Outfits of All-Time

    To celebrate last night’s opening picks of the NFL draft, we’ve decided to bring you a bunch of pictures of NBA draft picks dressed ridiculously. Doesn’t make much sense, does it? Well, actually it does. Draft season is upon us, which means we get to see a collective of autonomous, 18-20 year-olds who are essentially […]

  • 9 Greatest Steals in NFL Draft History

    9 Greatest Steals in NFL Draft History

    Let’s not get bogged down with the negative and all the draft busts this time of year. (Though they are WAY more fun to talk about). We’ve addressed those. Now let’s talk about the flip side of that coin. The steals. The players that defied expectations and, from their lowly stations, managed to capture greatness […]

    15 Hottest Actresses in Sports Films

    When women get involved in sports movies, it’s not always the best marriage, if only because most sports films are about men. As such, the women usually serve as the love interest, which has a way of dragging down the pace of the film and basically just ruins everything for everyone. But there are more […]

  • 9 Biggest NFL Draft Busts

    9 Biggest NFL Draft Busts

    Every year, around draft time (right now), names get bandied about as precautionary tales of how not to utilize your draft picks. It should be no surprise, either, as NFL draft picks are worth their weight in gold in a league where the average career hovers somewhere around 16 minutes. This list is a little […]

  • 9 Ridiculous Sports-Related Urban Legends

    9 Ridiculous Sports-Related Urban Legends

    Don’t tell me if they’re not true. They’re true as long as we choose to believe them. And I choose to believe these because they’re hilarious. Don’t tell me otherwise, and certainly don’t let a stupid inconvenience like truth get in the way of a good story. As a “journalist,” I can say with absolute […]

  • 9 Best NBA Arenas to Watch a Playoff Game

    9 Best NBA Arenas to Watch a Playoff Game

    This is/was a more difficult to assemble than those for baseball, football or even hockey. Though crowd plays a big role in the performance of a home team, NBA action is largely bird’s-eye. So on TV, the casual observer, or even the astute one, won’t really distinguish one from the other. Even fan noise is […]

  • 9 Obnoxious People You Might See At An NHL Playoff Game

    9 Obnoxious People You Might See At An NHL Playoff Game

    It’s playoff time. And that means that getting to live hockey is a mandate. However, live playoff matches aren’t without their caveats. For instance, you can get caught in a run-in with any of the 9 personality types you see below. That can cast a shadow on even the most exciting barnburner of a game. […]

    10 Hottest WAGs of the NHL

    Women don’t always go for the bad boys. Don’t get me wrong, hockey players are tough as nails, but they simply don’t in the same sandbox as basketball and football players when it comes to bad behavior. They also have some truly awful hair and myriad dental problems. It must be their slapshots that reel […]

  • 9 Greatest ‘Barns’ To Watch An NHL Playoff Game

    9 Greatest ‘Barns’ To Watch An NHL Playoff Game

    The season is upon us. The Stanley Cup Playoffs are back. But not all playoff environments are created equal.

  • 9 Team Owners Who Look Like the Crypt Keeper

    9 Team Owners Who Look Like the Crypt Keeper

    Ghouls and professional sports franchise owners have a lot in common. Both are usually evil, despised, feared, and stuck somewhere between this world and the next. As such, we thought we’d compare some well known sports owners to one of the most well known ghouls of all: the Crypt Keeper from HBO’s “Tales From the […]

  • 9 Gayest-Sounding NBA Team Names

    9 Gayest-Sounding NBA Team Names

    There’s only 32 teams in the NBA, and practically a third of them conjure up some sort of homoerotic undertones or phallic imagery. Why is that? With other sports, it’s still uncannily high (like 20%), but the NBA really seems to go the extra mile. I’m not going to speculate as to why. That’s for […]

  • 11 Athletes We’d Like to Punch in the Face

    11 Athletes We’d Like to Punch in the Face

    This list could be a thousand entries long. Of course, everyone has their own athletes they want to punch. I’m sure someone out there hates Dirk Nowitzki with a passion and wants nothing more to see him hurt, but that’s not what this list is about. Some athletes, seemingly universally, just rub everyone the wrong […]

    The 9 Hottest Softball Players: Female Edition

    Softball. It’s not just for drunken corporate drones anymore. Well, it still kinda is. But bear in mind, no matter how agro and nasty you get while playing, deep down, softball is a girl’s sport. And trying to shake that connotation is like trying to fight the sunrise. So leave the gratuitous wind-ups and underhanded […]
