  • 9 Ways to Spend Your Sundays Now That Football Is Over

    9 Ways to Spend Your Sundays Now That Football Is Over

    I would say that adjusting to time changes are about as tough as adjusting to the end of football season. In both instances, you see people milling about aimlessly, unsure of what is happening, let alone what they should do about it. The loss of football affects us all differently, but together, we can get […]

  • The 9 Most Humiliating Losing Streaks in Sports

    The 9 Most Humiliating Losing Streaks in Sports

    Cleveland may not be the most tortured sports city, but they sure do get a lot of press for it: Major League, the Browns, and of course, the Cavs sans-LeBron. Last night’s loss marked the Cavs’ 26th straight loss, tying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for most consecutive losses by a professional team in North America. […]

  • 15 Female Athletes That Could Snap You Like A Twig

    15 Female Athletes That Could Snap You Like A Twig

    We spend a lot of time at TPS talking about the hottest women in sports, but of course there is a totally different facet to female athletes that merits discussion – many of them could beat the crap out of you. Granted men have a genetic advantage when it comes to strength, but that advantage […]

  • 9 Worst National Anthem Gaffes (Videos)

    9 Worst National Anthem Gaffes (Videos)

    I would like to take a moment to defend the people on this list. The national anthem is damn near impossible to sing. Christina’s goof at the Super Bowl was a screw-up, but she fixed it and got over it, and I actually think she did a pretty decent job. But that’s no fun for […]

  • The 11 Best (and 6 Worst) Super Bowl XLV Commercials

    The 11 Best (and 6 Worst) Super Bowl XLV Commercials

    Everybody loves the Super Bowl. Actually, a few people don’t, but they’re all terrorists and communists. After all, what’s not to like? It’s a great excuse to party with friends, get drunk, and eat junk food. And even if you could care less about the game itself, the commercials are usually pretty entertaining. Sure, they’re […]

  • 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 […]
