    9 Female Athletes Who Don’t Just Get By On Their Looks (But Could)

    Don’t hate them cause they’re beautiful. Hate them because they are beautiful and more successful than you are. And most of them could probably kick your butt on and off the court. Hate them for that. Though these ladies have looks, don’t write them off as eye candy, as they are among the most decorated […]

  • The 5 Most Ridiculous Names in Golf

    The 5 Most Ridiculous Names in Golf

    Every sport has its share of ridiculous names, but few sports have names and nicknames that are so in-line with the “aura” or the sport. For a long time, golf was for the upper-crust, but in recent years, we have seen a surge in the presence of southern players in the PGA. And where there […]

  • 9 Devoutly Religious Athletes

    9 Devoutly Religious Athletes

    “Here are some athletes that were known for being pretty religious.” Not the most compelling lead for an article, but what can be said? Athletes find themselves answering to a higher power (sometimes) because they live off the bounty of gifts. What does that mean to the fans? Well, normally it doesn’t mean a damn […]

  • 9 Most Memorable Sports Riots

    9 Most Memorable Sports Riots

    In light of the stupid Vancouver riots that took place earlier this week, we decided to investigate some of the most memorable riots in history, seeing how fans (and players) can react so violently and dangerously to both winning and losing. While none of these actions are forgivable, some were certainly foreseeable (see entry number […]

  • 5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

  • 5 Reasons The LeBron Backlash Is Total Bullsh*t

    5 Reasons The LeBron Backlash Is Total Bullsh*t

    Looking at the coverage 24 hours after the Mavericks twisted the dagger and the Miami Heat bled out, it’s not surprising to see LeBron James be the recipient of vitriol. It was surprising to see how much of it there was. People were calling him a failure and saying that his legacy was tarnished, labeling […]

  • 9 Reasons The Heat Are Still the Team To Beat

    9 Reasons The Heat Are Still the Team To Beat

    Recently, there’s been a lot of hate on the Heat, culminating in last night’s Finals loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Some of it was deserved, and some simply piled on because expectations were so high. Well, they have a few months to lick their wounds, get back to gelling and prove to the skeptics that […]

  • 9 Restaurants Owned by Athletes

    9 Restaurants Owned by Athletes

    Athletes owned restaurants rarely succeed. Like athletes and music, or athletes and acting, or basically athletes doing anything but athletics is a recipe for disaster. Sadly, this list proves that, with few exceptions, athletes should stay the hell out of the kitchen. “The kitchen” being a metaphor for “any aspect of hospitality development.” Prepare yourself […]

  • 9 Coaches With Trademark Fashions

    9 Coaches With Trademark Fashions

    At most sporting events, there is little opportunity for the principals to really flex much muscle in the arena of fashion because, quite simply, all the players are wearing uniforms. Well, the coaches don’t have to. Except in baseball. And baseball managers look ridiculous in uniforms. In the more advanced sports, coaches don’t have to […]

  • 10 Female Athletes That Get By On Their Looks

    10 Female Athletes That Get By On Their Looks

    The title of this piece probably sounds harsher than it is. Of course, everyone who appears here is an extraordinary athlete. But being an extraordinary athlete is not necessarily enough to give you a boost to international stardom, which is smack dab where all these ladies reside. Now that I’m done covering my ass, let’s […]

  • 5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    The reasons to drop the BCS system have been bandied about since the program was instituted. I’ve never heard a compelling argument in favor of the current system. In fact, I’ve never heard anyone except athletic administrators and BCS “officials” (whatever the hell they do) even try to validate the system. And their reasons stem […]

  • 9 Olympic Flash-In-The-Pans

    9 Olympic Flash-In-The-Pans

    It’s hard to call any Olympic athlete a “flash in the pan.” First off, they clearly had a lot of success to get to the Olympic games. Secondly, the inability to achieve Olympic success doesn’t necessarily mean that one hasn’t achieved lot of success in other venues. However, there have been plenty of athletes that […]

  • 9 Athletic Scandals We Couldn’t Make Up If We Tried

    9 Athletic Scandals We Couldn’t Make Up If We Tried

    These might not all be the worst scandals in sports, or the funniest, but they’re pretty damn crazy. A few are within the realm of possibility, but would require a crack writing team to craft the stories any better than fate did. Some of them are funny, some are sad, all are weird as hell. […]

  • 9 Greatest Athletes-Turned-Analysts

    9 Greatest Athletes-Turned-Analysts

    The leap from pro athlete to studio host or analyst is something of a no-brainer. “Hey, this guy played sports. He should have no problem talking about them in front of a national audience.” Of course, anyone who watches sports knows the success ratio here is like 14%. Becoming successful in this arena usually takes […]

    15 Sexiest Workout Girls of All Time

    The days of the hot fitness guru may have come and gone. But to a generation of boys without cable or internet, daytime workout shows and ads for workout videos were as hot as it got. They died out a few years after sexy flight attendants did, so this career path is not the bastion […]
