    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.

    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.

  • 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

    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

    The title of this piece probably sounds harsher than it is. Of course, everyone who appears here is an extraordinary athlete.

  • 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

    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

    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. […]

    15 Sexiest Workout Girls of All Time

    9 Classic Sports Biographies Every Fan Should Read

    It can be really hard to find a good book about your favorite athlete.

  • 12 Sexiest Korean LPGA Golfers

    12 Sexiest Korean LPGA Golfers

    The LPGA doesn’t get enough respect. Sure, you’ve probably heard that conventional argument dozens, if not hundreds of times before, but there’s another angle that transcends athletic ability. There are some bona fide hotties on the LPGA tour and elsewhere. And a disproportionate amount hail from South Korea. Why is that? I don’t know. We’re […]

    9 Professional Athletes With Extremely Weird Hobbies

    It can’t just be about sports. It can’t. Sure you can focus on just sports, but then you wind up boring and creepy, like Kobe Bryant. Variety is the spice of life, and these guys certainly have variety in spades. It’s hard to get further away from the world of athletics than bow ties, S.W.A.T. […]

    The Kiss-Cam might be the single best innovation of the live sports experience in the past 25 years…or at least since the dot races. No other spectacle provides such opportunity for humiliation, lust, comedy, and humiliation again.
