    Defying Stereotypes (Sort of): 9 Athletes That Don’t Look Like Athletes

    By their very nature, most athletes don’t stand out from one another. By and large, most are physical specimens with short hair and few remarkable characteristics otherwise. These guys aren’t image consultants, they’re athletes, so it stands to reason that most of their efforts are put towards their craft rather than towards maintaining a distinct […]

    15 Most Atrocious Sports Logos That Ever Existed

    Designing or redesigning a team logo is a tightrope walk, as you want them to be captivating, but at the same time, as simple as possible to get the point across. The entries below run the gamut from simple to needlessly complex, with most entries running towards the latter. While there are tons of great […]

    10 Athletes Who Might Not Be Total Douchebags

    How hard is it to find likable athletes? Harder than you would think. I’m sure there are many out there, but the best of the best usually end up making headlines off the field for all the wrong reason. To the players’ credit, the media and readers would seemingly rather read about a sex scandal […]

    Maybe Next Year: The 9 Worst Sports Cities in America (To Visit)

    Without the sour, you can’t appreciate the sweet. Or some-such horseshit. Actually, I think we can all agree that our sports appetites would be just fine if these cities would know their role and just shut their mouths for a mad minute, as they’re not hanging banners and frankly, with a couple of exceptions, aren’t […]

    Cross ‘Em Off the List: 11 Best Sports Cities (To Visit)

    If you’re traveling to a city for a sporting event, a great game will only get you so far. Watching your team trounce its rival is good for something, but before and after, there has to be a scene that further validates your trip in a way that athletic accomplishment can’t. Where’s the party? If […]

    Jock and Awe: 30 Athletes Grabbing Their Junk

    We’re feeling a little homoerotic here at Total Pro Sports (must be a weekday). In honor of our confusing yet titillating feelings, we’ve put together this compilation of athletes who were caught grabbing their junk (and sometimes other people’s junk). It’s not the classiest picture compilation we’ve ever put together, but hey, they can’t all […]

  • 10 Ridiculously Racist Remarks from Sports Personalities

    10 Ridiculously Racist Remarks from Sports Personalities

    Everyone says stupid stuff. However, when you’re in the public eye, you can expect that stupid stuff to echo around for a long, long time. Just ask Jessica Simpson. Well, silly comments or brief moments of stupidity are often made fun of, then quickly forgotten. But anything having to do with a social or political […]

    20 Overzealous and Over The Top Celebrations (Videos)

    Passions run high in sports, especially in moments of triumph, but at some point, you have to say “enough is enough.” You may be taken by the moment, but that doesn’t give you license to act like an escaped mental patient during your celebration. There is no better example of such misguided zeal than the […]

    Uniform Malfunctions: 10 Awesome Athlete Camel Toes

    Women in sports are generally a little more “on display” than their male counterparts.

And, due to both their apparel and their anatomy, unfortunate things can happen. Topping […]

    So Close, Yet So Far: 25 of the Luckiest Male Cheerleaders Ever

    Are male cheerleaders lucky? Most people would probably say “no”. They have an inferiority complex to the guys on the field, they are (presumably) relegated to “friend” status by the minxy little coeds that they might as well be neutered. Yes, they get to handle supple young coeds, but the action is so commonplace that […]

    Whenever an argument breaks out over the virtues of pro football vs. the college game, one of the first cards to be played is the presence of college bands.
