    15 Female Athletes We’re Thankful For In 2013

    Obviously, there are a lot of things for which we all should be very thankful—things like freedom, family, 21st century medicine, the internet, football, and beer. However, way, way up at the top of the list, right in between combination Pizza Hut-Taco Bells and the iPhone 5S, there’s this: attractive female athletes. Not only does […]

    10 NHL Franchises Worth Less than the Dallas Cowboys…Combined

    Yesterday Forbes released their annual list of the NHL team values, and there’s good news and bad news. First the good news: the average value of an NHL team rose 46% in the last year, and it wasn’t just the big fish pulling everybody up. Even the little guys increased in value. Now the bad […]

    13 Least Thankful People in Sports Right Now

    Thanksgiving is coming up this week, and you know what that means: we have the watch the Dallas Cowboys play the Oakland Raiders. No, I’m totally just kidding! Well, not about the Cowboys-Raiders part. That really is happening. But I’m kidding when I say that’s all Thanksgiving means. Obviously, Thanksgiving really means pausing from the […]

    9 Reasons Why Brady vs. Manning is the Best Rivalry in the NFL

    Yesterday, while clicking around the internet trying to avoid doing actual work, I came across an article talking about this weekend’s marquee NFL matchup between Tom Brady’s New England Patriots and Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos. The main argument of that article? That the rivalry was overblown, and everyone is tired of hearing about it. Well […]

    29 GIFs of Ridiculously Terrible Basketball Shots

    When it’s played well, basketball is graceful and beautiful and a joy to watch. And of course, when it is played poorly, it is downright ugly. Fortunately, the absurd is funny, and ugly things can sometimes be just as amusing as beautiful things—especially when you group all those ridiculous ugly things together in one place. […]

    Every NFL Team’s Biggest Celebrity Fan

    The NFL, as everyone knows, is the biggest pro sports league in the world. Sure, no one outside North America really knows anything about it, but 20 of the 30 most valuable sports franchises in the world are NFL teams, and all 32 teams are in the top 50. Even the Jaguars. So in economic […]

    14 Awesome NHL Player of the Game Trophies

    You may not have realized it if you don’t follow the NHL that closely (or if your team is no fun), but there’s a really awesome trend sweeping the league these days: player of the game trophies. I’m not talking about official awards handed out by media or the league. I’m talking about handmade and/or found items […]

    15 Biggest Season-Destroying Injuries of the 2013 NFL Season

    Every year, come the end of November, injuries become the biggest stories of the NFL season. This year is no exception. We’re now heading into Week 12, and once again it’s looking like half the playoff spots will go to the teams that manage to keep their biggest role players healthiest the longest. Today we’re […]

  • 11 NBA Mascots That Will Haunt Your Nightmares

    11 NBA Mascots That Will Haunt Your Nightmares

    Everybody loves a good mascot. Their zany antics are just what you need to keep things light when your team really sucks, or when you’re at the game with kids, or when you’ve run out of beer money. However, as we’ve seen before, there is a pretty fine line between “quirky and whimsical” and “freaky […]

    21 Awesome Punt Return GIFs

    Earlier this week I was writing about the Rams’ shocking upset of the Colts, which turned on three huge plays from rookie Tavon Austin, one of which was a 98-yard punt return touchdown. And I asked myself, “what the hell is more exciting in a football game than a punt return touchdown?” Well, I thought […]

  • 8 NFL Players Who Have Been Arrested Since The Season Began

    8 NFL Players Who Have Been Arrested Since The Season Began

    The NFL is not enjoying a great year PR-wise. Not that it matters. Football is like crack to Americans, so it’s no big deal that Aaron Hernandez is arrested for having murdered over 52,000 people, Richie Incognito is threatening to steal Mel Gibson’s title of America’s Sweetheart, and Pacman Jones is still allowed to live […]

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that. I think the regular fights we see today—the ones where guys agree to fight each ahead of time, for no reason, and then throw down as soon as the puck drops—those […]

  • 15 of the Biggest Racist D-Bags in Sports History

    15 of the Biggest Racist D-Bags in Sports History

    Somehow, since this whole Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin story broke last week, the conversation seems to have shifted from the subject of racism to the subject of bullying and the overly machismo culture of NFL locker rooms. Is this discussion important to have? Of course it is. But to be quite honest, I still am not […]

    9 Most Overpaid Coaches in College Football Right Now

    This week, USA Today released their annual list of the highest-paid coaches in college football. The results, as always, were interesting. There are 17 coaches making $3 million or more. There are 50 making $2 million or more. And there are only 22 making less than $500,000. So yeah, coaching college football pays pretty well. […]

    21 Ridiculous Football Flopping GIFs

    To be honest with you, I never really thought this list would be possible. Flopping? In football? American football? “Ridiculous,” I would have said in 1990…if I weren’t just a kid. But alas, unless you’ve been living under a rock (and that rock doesn’t have the NFL Network), you know that flopping has become a […]
