    9 Professional Sports Teams That Should Pack Up and Move

    There’s nothing worse than seeing a historic sports franchise pack up and move to another city. For fans, the experience is similar to watching a loved one pass away, or in some cases, going through a bitter divorce. But the fact of the matter is that money talks and B.S. walks. Besides, not all franchises […]

  • 15 Female Athletes Who Belong in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

    15 Female Athletes Who Belong in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

    Sports Illustrated released its 2011 Swimsuit Issue, and like always, the women were ridiculously hot. And while I’m certainly not complaining about the models they used, I can help but think a magazine that’s all about sports could have better utilized some female athletes. From time to time, women like Danica Patrick and Anna Kournikova […]

    10 Athletes Whose Lives Were Cut Too Short

    Few things are more tragic than not being able to see someone deliver on the promise of their passion or their career. On no stage is that more evident than in that of professional sports, in which careers are tracked from an early age and the hopes of fans, friends and family alike hinge on […]

  • 9 Athletes Who Need Their Own Reality Show

    9 Athletes Who Need Their Own Reality Show

    Athletes are not, by and large, interesting people. It’s not their fault – most people aren’t interesting. However, some athletes warrant a closer look for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they’re awful (see directly below), crazy, wildly entertaining, or just too good to be true. I wouldn’t wish a reality television show upon my worst […]

  • 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, […]
