    9 College Football Teams to Look Out For in 2010

    For such a tumultuous off-season in college football, it doesn’t seem like much has changed. Realignment was supposed to decimate the Big 12 and concentrate the power even more. That didn’t happen. Rockstar quarterbacks from Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida all went pro, but they still all sit pretty in the preseason polls. USC is playing […]

  • 9 Douchebags You’ll Find At a College Football Game

    9 Douchebags You’ll Find At a College Football Game

    College football is awesome. College football fans… not so much. It’s fine to root for your alma matter or adopt the hometown team in a non-NFL city like Norman, Baton Rouge or, say, Los Angeles. However, with college football fans there is a line of douchebaggery that is crossed with great frequency. On the other […]

  • 9 Reasons College Football Is Better Than the NFL

    9 Reasons College Football Is Better Than the NFL

    Thank God we don’t have to pick between one or the other.

    9 Awesome Baseball Manager Tirades We Will Never Forget

    As Lou Piniella lays down his spikes this week and retires from the Cubs, he gives us a legacy to look back on unlike any other active manager.

  • 9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    While athletes have the ability to amaze us on the field, the advent of viral videos allows many of those same athletes to blow us away just by screwing around. Be it during practice, outtakes during commercials or photo shoots, even when the pressure’s off and nothing’s at stake, the best of the best can […]

  • 9 Defunct Sports Venues We Wish Were Still Around

    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.

    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.

    9 Classic Michael Jordan Commercials

    From the late 80’s to mid-90’s, no corporation was more renowned for their marketing and advertising efforts than Nike. They turned footwear and sports apparel into culture and athletes into bona fide celebrities in a way not seen since the days of Broadway Joe Namath.

    7 Sports Figures Possibly Hated More Than Lebron

    Right now, LeBron James is one of the most polarizing figures in sports. Even Michael Jordan in talking smack about him, which must be humiliating. But LeBron is far from unique in the pantheon of hated sports figures. Here’s a look at seven others who are possibly hated more than Lebron.[...]

  • 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. Then, when the player leaves town, changes his number or doesn’t pan out they cast it aside like a used condom. They literally […]

    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. Some immediately draw a parallel to what is essentially team-sponsored torture, some think about the harmless pranks that […]
