    The Breakfast of Champions: 15 Iconic (and, or Ironic) Wheaties Boxes

    “Better eat your Wheaties,” was once a common response to a child saying they wished to be a professional athlete.

Few products are so closely linked with champions (sorry, Buick) as Wheaties, […]

    9 Reasons Why We Love Thanksgiving Day NFL Games

    Asking most Americans why they love Thanksgiving Day football is like asking most humans why they are so fond of oxygen. It’s been with us so long that we take it for granted.

    You Ain’t Got No Alibi: 9 Ridiculous Cheerleading Scandals

    In lines of work that breed depravity, “cheerleader” might be neck and neck with “athlete.” Both are entitled, receive special treatment for their genetic gifts, and are mired in competition and fast living.

  • 9 Most Hateable Teams in Pro Sports

    9 Most Hateable Teams in Pro Sports

    It’s fun to hate sports teams. We LOVE to hate sports teams. If there weren’t hateable teams out there, every game would be the equivalent of the Seattle Mariners versus the Sacramento Kings. No one would care. Sports consist of compelling stories, and every compelling story needs an antagonist. And no one is more antagonistic […]

    Brought to You By: The 9 Lamest NASCAR Sponsors

    In the world of sports, sponsorship is inherently lame. It reduces the efforts of the participants to figures and cheapens everything from the stadiums to the fields on which they play.

    16 ‘Athletes’ Featured on the Cover of Playboy

    The archetypes of the female athlete’s body and the Playboy cover girl’s body don’t overlap much. The assets of a successful female athlete aren’t exactly the body parts that your typical Playboy reader would prize, so when an athlete fits the Playboy mold, it’s a pretty big deal.

    As the recent Breeder’s Cup has shown us, much like a rabid toddler, a jockey can be small, yet vicious.
