    Run, Moron, Run: 11 Epic Takedowns of Field-Crashing Fans

    It takes a special kind of person to want to rush the field or court in the middle of a sporting event. They could simply be overrun by passion, they could be just drunk, or they could have deep psychological issues that require attention from TV and stadium audiences alike. The cause doesn’t really matter. […]

  • 9 Common Sportscaster Clichés

    9 Common Sportscaster Clichés

    This list could easily be one hundred entries long. It’s not that announcers are lazy, uneducated guys; by and large, they’re not. However, when you have to speak for three hours, there’s only so much original thought you can shoehorn in before you have to go back to the deep well of clichés. Some clichés […]

    21 Intentionally (and Unintentionally) Hilarious Sports Jerseys (Pics)

    Jerseys are a double edged sword. In the right context, they’re a perfectly acceptable thing to wear. But in the wrong context, they make you look like a fool. In some cases, fans themselves have cut out the middle man to make intentionally hilarious jerseys. Other times, people are just blissfully unaware of why the […]

    9 Regrettable Sports Fan Tattoos (Pics)

    Sports loyalty is displayed in many ways. Many stupid, stupid ways. From painting your 1993 Mitsubishi 300GT silver and blue with the Cowboys star to naming your first son, born in 2005, Seamus David Ortiz McMulligan, the ability to cross the line from “tasteful support” to “clinical compulsion” gets grey in the realm of tattoos. […]

    9 Most Iconic Songs from the World of Sports (Audio)

    While there are a few exceptions (“One Shining Moment” at the end of CBS’ NCAA tourney coverage comes to mind), most of the songs we equate with sports are the soundtracks to the arenas and stadiums where we go to see live events. While variety isn’t exactly the name of the game when it comes […]

    The Walking Wounded: 9 Star Athletes Plagued By Injuries

    After seeing the perennial week-one injury bloodbath in the NFL that has left fantasy owners reeling and fans cursing their luck, many wonder if players’ tendencies to get injured are the result of playing style, physical composition, or simply bad karma for not tipping their valet. While their doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or […]

  • 9 Douchebags Wearing Starter Jackets

    9 Douchebags Wearing Starter Jackets

    Few things are more comical than outdated fashions. And while someone’s high school yearbook photo from 1976 might have them in an afro and a corduroy jacket, it’s far funnier to see people in the ridiculous fashions of the recent past. One prime example of this is the Starter jacket, which were generally huge, bright […]

  • 9 Calls Worse Than Yesterday’s Bears/Lions Decision

    9 Calls Worse Than Yesterday’s Bears/Lions Decision

    Whenever we get too comfortable with the job our referees are doing, there’s always a play like the one in yesterday’s in Bears/Lions game to shake things up and merit new discussions on how much our refs suck. While the call seemed to be inline with the rule, the fact remains that any rule declaring […]

    9 Reasons Why Reggie Bush Should Keep His Heisman

    Over the past few weeks, you couldn’t swing a dead virtual cat on the Internet without hitting a story on the Reggie Bush Heisman scandal/decision. Reports yesterday indicate that he will be stripped of his Heisman for the first time in the history of the award. Yes, he broke NCAA rules. Yes, he would have […]

  • 9 Reasons Madden Football is Better Than the NFL

    9 Reasons Madden Football is Better Than the NFL

    The NFL is great. But the NFL as played in the Madden franchise of video games has surpassed it. It’s time the real NFL fired their human players and made the switch to a 100% digital league. It would do wonders for the salary cap. Am I being serious. My heart says no, but this […]

  • 9 NFL Teams to Watch in 2010

    9 NFL Teams to Watch in 2010

    Over the course of the past decade, parity in the NFL has all but killed the idea of an underdog. Thanks to obsessive fantasy football and absurd amounts of preseason analysis, enough homework gets done every summer that predictions and expectations generally don’t yield many surprises at the end of the season. I inserted the […]

  • 9 Douchebags You’ll Find In Your Fantasy Football League

    9 Douchebags You’ll Find In Your Fantasy Football League

    It is estimated that there are nearly 30 million fantasy football players in the United States. We estimate that at least 20 million of them are total douchebags. While this may not statistically run too far out of line with the general population, it does seem that fantasy football has a tendency to bring out […]

    9 Colleges with the Hottest Sports Fans

    While most every state school has its share of talent due to enrollment alone, what we are looking for in this list is concentration of talent. I’m sure Amherst has some hot girls, but if you go to one of their football games, are you going to feel awash in a sea of hotties? Probably […]

    9 Most Embarrassing Sports Celebrity Endorsements (Videos)

    Can you put a price on dignity and integrity? For many, that answer is no. Fortunately for us, for the vast majority of athletes, that answer is a resounding yes. Judging by the caliber of businesses that many of these athletes represent, the price of their dignity doesn’t seem to be particularly high. These nine […]

    9 of the Greatest College Stadiums for Tailgating

    Make no mistake, the greatest stadiums for tailgating have nothing to do with the stadiums themselves, but everything to do with the people, atmosphere, and importance of the game. They could turn the Parthenon in Greece into a college football venue, but if Colorado St. is playing UNC-Asheville, it loses to Saturdays in Madison every […]
