  • The 9 Most Iconic Baseball Cards You Wish You Still Had (1985 – 1995)

    The 9 Most Iconic Baseball Cards You Wish You Still Had (1985 – 1995)

    Allow me to preemptively strike any criticisms that come part and parcel with trying to hone an entire beloved industry into 9 examples. Your favorite player may not be on this list. My favorite player isn’t on this list either. However, during about a decade of collecting baseball cards (1986-1994, give or take), some cards […]

  • The 9 Goofiest Names in Sports

    The 9 Goofiest Names in Sports

    I always felt like there were more, but in boning up on this list topic, I found that there aren’t quite as many funny names as one would think. But the March Madness tournament is always a great place to mine at least four funny names per year. Combine that with college football, and it […]

  • 9 Most Hilarious Mascot Pranks

    9 Most Hilarious Mascot Pranks

    Oh mascots. You pretty much just appeal to little kids and the mentally handicapped, but every so often, you do something that’s very unbecoming (and normally a little mean) that makes us fall in love with you all over again. The more out of line, the better, as it’s a perfect linear relationship. Under the […]

  • 9 Best Cities To Watch An MLB Home Opener

    9 Best Cities To Watch An MLB Home Opener

    Opening day is something special, even for the most casual of baseball fans. It serves to let us know that winter is over, and we can shed our layers and get back outside. For the more die-hard fans, it represents the optimism of a new season and a look at the team you’ll be spending […]

  • 15 Hottest MLB Babes

    15 Hottest MLB Babes

    Baseball is rarely regarded as a “sexy” sport. That’s probably due to its close associations with both Kevin Costner and chewing tobacco. But it’s a bum rap, regardless. There are hot MLB fans and fan bases, no doubt, but it’s hardly a universal phenomenon. For instance, would you believe that out of the below entries, […]

  • 9 Awesome Videos of Animals Playing Sports

    9 Awesome Videos of Animals Playing Sports

    I’ll be the first one to admit that this daily piece is culturally biased. For almost a year now, I have been focusing almost exclusively on human athletes. Well, that stops now. I have overlooked a large segment of the sporting population, and with today’s piece, I would like to move the spotlight to some […]

  • 9 Worst TV/Movie Appearances By Athletes

    9 Worst TV/Movie Appearances By Athletes

    There are many, many, many horrible athlete cameos, stemming from the 1980’s, when athletes would show up on very special episodes to tell little kids not to smoke pot or start gambling. Which is ironic, because so many pro athletes love to smoke pot and gamble. Well, they also like to act, which isn’t always […]

  • 9 College Stars Who Fizzled in the NBA

    9 College Stars Who Fizzled in the NBA

    Oh, nothing like college draft busts to remind us how different the two games are. It’s one thing to see a high school or international player get picked up and fail when making the leap to the NBA, but when it’s an NCAA player, who has existed under our very noses, it makes us wonder […]

  • 9 Greatest Porn Staches In Sports History

    9 Greatest Porn Staches In Sports History

    What delineates a porn ‘stache from a regular mustache? Virtually nothing. That’s a like discerning between a very fat man and an obese man. I believe that every type of mustache has a place in pornography, though some are more apt (Adam Morrison has a very traditional porn ‘stache, and if he was a better […]

  • 9 Hottest Female Surfers

    9 Hottest Female Surfers

    Here are some really hot surfer girls. The hottest, actually. Hmm. What else can be said about these girls? They’re almost all blonde, tan, in great shape and the median age is hovering around 20. If you’re still reading this and not scrolling down for the pictures yet, you’re weird. I’m going to berate you […]

  • 9 Biggest Sports Meltdowns, Temper Tantrums, and Blowups

    9 Biggest Sports Meltdowns, Temper Tantrums, and Blowups

    Emotions run sky-high in sports, so it’s not hard to scroll through hundreds of instances of mouthing off and water cooler-tossing. Sometimes these tirades are scathing beratings, hilarious acts of violence against inanimate objects, and, at their worst, episodes of “When Animals Attack.” I chose a smattering of all three types because variety is the […]

  • 9 Lamest Excuses For Why Your NCAA Bracket Is In Shambles

    9 Lamest Excuses For Why Your NCAA Bracket Is In Shambles

    Well, the first weekend of the 2011 NCAA Tournament is in the books. Now you have to go to work and face your co-workers, who will not let you forget that you are currently in last place in the office pool, right behind the temp who filled out her whole bracket according to the cuteness/scariness […]

  • 9 Biggest Crybabies in Sports

    9 Biggest Crybabies in Sports

    Allow me to clarify this title. It’s not about actually who actually cry (as we covered last week), but rather about men who simply won’t stop whining. People that won’t stop complaining about calls, bitch to the media about clubhouse affairs, etc. They are among the most destructive and obnoxious types of personalities, so we’ve […]

  • The 9 Greatest Irish Athletes

    The 9 Greatest Irish Athletes

    I’ll be honest. We probably wouldn’t be running this list if it wasn’t St. Patrick’s Day. But it is, so we are. The history of Irish athletes is far from fabled. Despite the large population of Irish-Americans, only reside 4 million people on the Emerald Isle, so don’t get your hopes up for a smorgasbord […]

  • 9 Hottest Female Sports Uniforms

    9 Hottest Female Sports Uniforms

    Fortunately for dudes, female athletic gear made for performance is normally tight and there isn’t much of it. So, there are quite a few uniforms from which to pick the cream of the crop, though anything with pads or helmets are automatically disqualified. No one thinks pads or helmets are sexy. They’re dorky, actually. That […]
