  • 9 Ridiculous Ways to Spice Up Your Super Bowl Party

    9 Ridiculous Ways to Spice Up Your Super Bowl Party

    Nothing’s worse than a bad Super Bowl party. Well, genocide and poverty are worse, but bad Super Bowl parties are pretty awful. It’s like having a bad New Year’s Eve: staying home and doing nothing is exponentially better than a bad night out. I’m not saying these suggestions are either good or bad. That will […]

  • 15 Sexiest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time (Including 4 Banned Ads)

    15 Sexiest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time (Including 4 Banned Ads)

    Normally, Super Bowl commercials are pretty anticlimactic. People anticipate staggering works of clever comedic genius, and they end up getting sassy cartoon penguins or something. But since everyone’s in a big group and kinda drunk, they laugh and enjoy the commercials nonetheless. But recently, in an effort to differentiate their ads from the others, a […]

  • The 30 Sexiest SI Swimsuit Photos of All Time

    The 30 Sexiest SI Swimsuit Photos of All Time

    It should come as no surprise that when considering the hottest women from any era, the current crop usually wins out. As hot as Marilyn was, I’d rather see Megan Fox. If you don’t agree, you’re probably really, really, old. However, we at TPS strive to honor the old guard, so as we work our […]

  • 9 Reasons the Steelers Will Take Down the Pack

    9 Reasons the Steelers Will Take Down the Pack

    Well, we’ve discussed what the Pack has going on. Now let’s talk about the Steelers. Is Ben an edge over Aaron? Late in the game, if things are close, probably. But the night and day discrepancy is defense. Yes, Green Bay has a hell of a defensive squad, but no team in the league plays […]

  • 9 Reasons the Pack Will Beat Pittsburgh

    9 Reasons the Pack Will Beat Pittsburgh

    The spread for the Superbowl is only 2.5 points (Green Bay being the favorite), which is a razor thin margin. Can both teams win? Not as far as I know. The Super Bowl historically only has one winner. This list doesn’t constitute a “pick” per se, but it is a pretty convincing list of reasons […]

  • 9 Examples of Fans Behaving Badly

    9 Examples of Fans Behaving Badly

    While this list could be comprised entirely of Philadelphia-area transgressions, I chose to broaden the horizons of the list a bit and include some other fan bases as well (even if the stuff Philly fans do is way, way worse). That said, it’s amazing how much of this behavior is contained in the Northeast. Sunny, […]

  • 9 Sporting Events Somehow Less Relevant Than the Pro Bowl

    9 Sporting Events Somehow Less Relevant Than the Pro Bowl

    This is probably my most difficult assignment in 6 months of making these lists. The task: Find 9 sports events that are less relevant than the Pro Bowl. Is anything less relevant than the Pro Bowl? That was rhetorical. No. Nothing is less relevant than the most anticlimactic event in sports. That’s my opinion. But […]

  • 20 Revolting Female Bodybuilders

    20 Revolting Female Bodybuilders

    When you think of female bodybuilders, the word “revolting” immediately springs to mind. For years, men have been drawn to taught, fit women. However, things get dicey when the line moves from taught and fit to “works out until one looks like an androgynous sea creature.” Well, guess which camp the residents of this list […]

  • 9 Lamest Off-the-Field Injuries

    9 Lamest Off-the-Field Injuries

    Sports are dangerous. There’s a reason these guys are pros. However, the risks involved may not be nearly as nasty as the risks that accompany every day l-i-v-i-n’. Facing Lawrence Taylor can be less daunting than washing your truck or training for reality television. While there’s nothing wrong with getting injured during your gladiator-like duties […]

  • 9 Most Boring Sports to Watch on TV

    9 Most Boring Sports to Watch on TV

    Sometimes, the “next best thing to being there” can be pretty damn boring. Many sports hinge on atmosphere or a sense of intimacy that the camera just can’t capture. And sometimes, boring sports are just made more boring by not being there. The good news is, if you’re watching a boring sport on TV, you […]

  • 9 Sports Record Holders Every Guy Should Know

    9 Sports Record Holders Every Guy Should Know

    There’s only so much room in our feeble human minds to retain all the knowledge we come across as sports fans. So how do we decide what to keep and what to throw out? That’s easy. Listen to us at TPS. There is no shortage of athletes who merit remembering, but since you can’t keep […]

  • 9 Smart Phone Apps That Are a Must For Every Sports Fan

    9 Smart Phone Apps That Are a Must For Every Sports Fan

    We are beginning to live in an age where we get any information we want as soon as we want it. This is troubling if you’re a covert spy, but pretty sweet if you’re a sports fan. Before, if you couldn’t make it to the game, you had to find a TV. Now, if you […]

  • The 25 Hottest (Female) Bodies in Sports

    The 25 Hottest (Female) Bodies in Sports

    It’s no surprise that sports and athletics breed hot bodies. What is hot is poring over this list and finding out exactly what sports breed the most hot bodies. There are four golfers on this list! Four! Since when do golfers have better bodies than surfers? There’s no accounting for the madness on this list, […]

  • 10 Must-See Venues for a Diehard Sports Fan

    10 Must-See Venues for a Diehard Sports Fan

    The nice thing about compiling a list like this is that it’s likely to be just as relevant in 20 years as it is now. Good teams of course come and go, but few places can be regarded as true sports Meccas. Once that distinction is earned, it isn’t quick to go. The best part […]

  • 9 Sports Marketing Gimmicks We’d Like to Forget

    9 Sports Marketing Gimmicks We’d Like to Forget

    Sports purists and traditionalists can be a pretty insufferable bunch, always talking about the integrity of the game and how any change will be the death of the sport. Well, as annoying as their rants may be, they’re not always wrong. Sometimes, change for the sake of change or to capture the public’s attention is […]
