    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

    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 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 […]

  • 9 Greatest Modern Jock Jams

    9 Greatest Modern Jock Jams

    Everyone and their dog has gone over “We Will Rock You,” “Eye of the Tiger,” and the like for most of their adult lives. Thanks to “The Sopranos,” you can dump Journey into that pile of dinosaur rock as well. But what of the newer guard of arena rock? While years of psychotherapy can’t get […]

  • 9 Memorable Masters Moments (Videos)

    9 Memorable Masters Moments (Videos)

    “A tradition unlike any other.” Kind of arrogant, but true. While golf is steeped in tradition from Pebble Beach to St. St. Andrews, no course or tournament pays tribute to the past with the jackets, the unchanging concession prices, and other controversial traditions. Well, it’s not all just a bunch of smoke. This is the […]

  • The 9 Greatest (Dumbest) Sports Toys

    The 9 Greatest (Dumbest) Sports Toys

    Sports toys. It’s a weird phrase. Sports are competitive, and, by definition, toys are not. So where does one draw the line? It’s a tricky question, and one that retailers have not been able to draw. In hindsight, they all seem pretty silly. I rag on pretty much every toy on this list, as a […]
