    The 10 Greatest Plays of 2010 (Videos)

    While the holidays are cluttered with annual year-end lists, there are few I anticipate more than the ones commemorating the best plays of the year. While it’s impossible for a play to encompass the tone of an entire year of sports, running through the best plays of the year always seems to serve as a […]

  • 10 Greatest Sports Bloopers of 2010

    10 Greatest Sports Bloopers of 2010

    “Bloopers” might be the wrong term for this list, but it’s the best-known, so we’re using it anyway. A blooper is generally taken in with humor. Lots of the screw-ups on this list are funny, but a few are awful. But still kinda funny. When professional athletes are beset with bad fortune, it makes us […]

  • 10 Awesome But Unofficial Sports Mascots

    10 Awesome But Unofficial Sports Mascots

    Recently, it’s been a bad time to be an unofficial mascot. Half of the guys on this list have passed away in the past three years, and that’s not even counting the Hogettes, whose ranks probably grow thinner by the hour. While wearing an “outfit” to a sporting event is pretty ridiculous for kids and […]

    The 11 Sexiest Sports Photo Shoots of 2010 (Pics)

    When you’re discussing the hottest photo shoots of the year, you expect the Swimsuit Issue to come up. You don’t really expect PETA to enter the conversation. However, their naked-celebrity-anti-fur stance has made them contenders year after year. Never write off how much hot girls love animals. Beyond that entry, there were a few other […]

  • 11 Creepy Wax Statues of Great Athletes (and Gilbert Arenas)

    11 Creepy Wax Statues of Great Athletes (and Gilbert Arenas)

    This piece might as well be titled “11 Wax Statues.” “Creepy” and “wax statues” go together like beer and pizza. It appears that Madame Tussaud’s is simply giving away wax representations of athletes and celebrities these days (Gilbert Arenas? Really?). But as long as rube tourists are willing to shell out $20 a pop to […]

  • The 19 Greatest Sports-Related Sex Euphemisms

    The 19 Greatest Sports-Related Sex Euphemisms

    Sports, aside from the world of construction, probably has more clichés and vocab that lend themselves to double entendre than any other occupation in the world. Sex and sports share many common themes, those of conquest, heartbreak, ambition, and a whole lot of sweat. Even something as basic a concept as scoring has become one […]

  • 9 Idiotic Sports Cartoons You Probably Loved as a Kid

    9 Idiotic Sports Cartoons You Probably Loved as a Kid

    Since most cartoons feature protagonists that can leap tall buildings in less than two bounds, it’s not hard to see why there aren’t more cartoons featuring athletes. Being able to backhand a fast grounder deep in the hole doesn’t really compete with being able to solve crimes out of a van or even sell Krabby […]

  • 11 Football Terms Every Guy Should Know

    11 Football Terms Every Guy Should Know

    While much of the football lexicon has been instilled in our brains from a young age, there are certain terms that occur infrequently enough that we might not necessarily know what they mean. While the announcers pretty much have PhD in football, often times the audience does not. Next time the announcers extol the virtues […]

  • The 15 Hottest International Sports Reporters

    The 15 Hottest International Sports Reporters

    While the US may be crazy about sports, that doesn’t mean it holds the monopoly on hot female sports correspondents. While the talent pool is deep stateside, there are about 2.85 billion other women to draw from. And wouldn’t you know it, there’s a disproportionately high number of them are from England. More specifically, on […]

    Perfect Hindsight: The 9 Biggest Fantasy Football Busts of 2010

    If you drafted any of these guys and still have them on your team, don’t feel too bad (except for Moss and DeAngelo Williams, then you should feel bad, cause they’re done for the season). No matter how good the stats are behind a decision, unforeseen circumstances abound in Fantasy Football. Injuries are obvious examples, […]

  • 9 Overlooked Players Who Should be in the MLB Hall of Fame

    9 Overlooked Players Who Should be in the MLB Hall of Fame

    Baseball, being so rich in nostalgia and steeped in tradition, holds sacred the Hall of Fame in a manner that no other sport does. Consequently, any snubs at the hand of the induction committee are seen, justifiably, as slights against a given player’s legacy. However, there are only so many spots that can be handed […]

  • What a Time To Be Alive: 9 Ways Technology Changed Sports Forever

    What a Time To Be Alive: 9 Ways Technology Changed Sports Forever

    Sports, despite being steeped in tradition, are certainly not exempt from the forward march of technology. Every day, people are designing racquets that hit harder, shoes that prevent injury, and sports drinks that fuel more. However, these constant, but small innovations are often punctuated by larger ones that are so massive, we don’t even recall […]

  • 7 Cheaters Who Basically Got Away with It

    7 Cheaters Who Basically Got Away with It

    This is a tough topic to address. The most egregious cheaters make for the most entertaining stories. However, egregious cheaters generally don’t fly under the radar for very long. People taking taxis during marathons and biting ears in boxing matches aren’t exactly suave. However, there have been a few people and teams that are known […]

    The 30 Most Googled Female Athletes in The World (Pics)

    Unsurprisingly, the women populating this list of most Googled female athletes are not entirely different than a regular list of the hottest female athletes. It’s almost like people have a tendency to Google good-looking people (Susan Boyle excepted). Well, at least the denizens of this countdown are bonafide athletes and aren’t ring girls or professional […]

  • 9 Archaic/Obscure Sports Rules Every Guy Should Know

    9 Archaic/Obscure Sports Rules Every Guy Should Know

    Taking a trip down memory lane looking through antiquated sports rulebooks is always good for a laugh, with their quaint notions of fairness and right and wrong. However, there exists a special level of anger and rage when you realize that your team has been hung up by a rule that hasn’t been applied since […]
