    The 11 Biggest Blowouts in World Cup History

    The margin of victory needed for a loss to be considered a blowout varies by sport. In baseball we’re generally talking about a loss of seven runs or more. In hockey it’s a loss of five or more goals. In basketball we’re usually talking about deficits of around 20 points. And in football—the American kind—a team is looking at a […]

    14 Biggest Villains of the 2014 FIFA World Cup

    With three huge games left to play, it’s still a little too early do a list of the biggest heroes of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. For all we know, some dude named Otto Von Schlitterbahn will score four goals in extra time to help Germany beat Argentina in the final. (FYI, I just made that name […]

    11 Most Heartbreaking Losses in USA Sports History

    American sports fans are pretty bummed today after watching the USA got eliminated by Belgium yesterday  at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

It’s happened before, and it will […]

    27 Wonderfully Ridiculous Hulk Hogan GIFs

    Yesterday, while working on a post about how Hulk Hogan has become the official mascot of the USMNT for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, I thought it would be fun to link to a list of Hulk Hogan GIFs. So I went into the old archives and had a look around only to make a horrible discovery: […]

    9 Teams That Have Absolutely No Chance of Landing LeBron

    Now that LeBron has officially opted out of the last two years of his contract with the Miami Heat, lots of writers, bloggers, pundits, and other experts are talking about where he’s most likely to end up.

    As soon as Luis Suarez took a bite out of Giorgio Chiellini yesterday during the final winner-take-all group stage game between Uruguay and Italy, you knew right away it would become an internet meme. After all, Suarez is one of the most polarizing figures in soccer, a guy who already had two biting suspensions in his career. And whenever something really […]

    The 10 Stupidest Championship Trophies in Sports

    Back in the day, before advanced telecommunications and social media, championship trophies were pretty practical.

    No sport on earth has hotter female reporters than soccer. This is a scientific fact. Don’t get me wrong, the other sports all have gorgeous women covering them.

    You can have neon shoes on your feet, diamond studs in your ears, and cute little short shorts covering your massive quads.
