    9 Defunct Sports Venues We Wish Were Still Around

    Generally speaking, time brings progress. A forty year-old ball park should be replaced by a new one that is more comfortable, better looking, and presumably, more interesting. This is almost always the case. Almost always. Below are a few of the rare instances in which a ballpark, arena, or stadium has proven itself superior to […]

  • 9 Greatest Simpsons Sports Cameos

    9 Greatest Simpsons Sports Cameos

    The Simpsons’ charm is the fact that it’s a topical geeky show. And geeky shows aren’t the type to treat athletes reverentially. Rather than treat legends like Namath, Frazier, Madden, and Pele like brightly burning stars, they grant them no exception to the ribbing they give everyone else on God’s green earth. Not sure you […]

    9 Athletes Who Are More White Trash Than Kenny Powers

    Amid the return of “Eastbound and Down” (the anti-”Friday Night Lights”) and the recent partnership between Kenny Powers and K-Swiss, which is laid out in beautiful glory here, we got KP on the brain.

    9 Classic McDonald’s Happy Meal Sports Toys

    Upon writing this article, I was both shocked and dismayed to find out that McDonalds has recently been bullied by politicians to stop including toys in their Happy Meals.

    From the late 80’s to mid-90’s, no corporation was more renowned for their marketing and advertising efforts than Nike.

  • 9 Sports Jerseys You’ll Probably Find at the Thrift Store

    9 Sports Jerseys You’ll Probably Find at the Thrift Store

    Sports jerseys are a funny thing. Those who choose to buy them shell out $200+ for an authentic jersey of their favorite player and wear it all over town with intense pride.

    9 Hazing Incidents That Didn’t Go Unnoticed

    Over 80% percent of college athletes claim to have been hazed at some point. The extent to which they are hazed isn’t defined, but hazing has a pretty big scope and elicits different responses from different people.

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

    9 Coaches Who Should Call It Quits

    We live in the era of www.fire_____.com (fill in the blank with your local sub .500 coach). Since that’s the way it is, and considering the amount of effort it would take to change it, who am I to buck the trend?

    9 Sideline Reporters Who’ve Probably Been Texted a Dong Pic

    Being a sideline reporter is a pretty thankless gig.

    Fierce Competitors: 9 Awesome Animals Playing Sports

    This is a really boring time of year for sports. Baseball isn’t quite in a pennant race. Football is in training camp. Hockey players are shaving their beards and basketball is months way.

    9 Vintage Basketball Sneakers

    Few things get twenty and thirty-somethings more fired up about their youth than sports and fashion. This affinity explains the recent spike in interest in the throwback jersey and shoe, and nowhere is that more clear than in the realm of basketball. It seems as though many sneaker aficionados are more interested in reissues from […]

    9 Classic Sports Video Games We Loved As a Child

    There is something to be said for being first. While video games now are presented in HD, with supercomputers rendering graphics to the point where it looks like I’m staring out my window, the bar is being raised so often that very few games are shocking or even pleasantly surprising.
