    9 Greatest Canadian Athletes Of All Time

    Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, or, as they call it, “Thanksgiving.” While the Canadians have much to be thankful for, like a functioning government and tolerable crime and literacy rates, the nation largely lies in the shadow of its southern neighbor’s athletic output. No longer. Let this list serve as enduring reminder of Canada’s contribution to […]

    Yesterday some pretty awesome college football news leaked. In 2016, an anonymous source confirmed, the University of Tennessee Volunteers will play the Virginia Tech Hokies at one of the most awesome sports venues in America: the Bristol Motor Speedway.

    22 Awesome Baseball Celebration GIFs

    Well, it’s that time of year again—the time when grown men in stretchy pajama pants gather together in a room with walls covered in plastic to waste tons of perfectly good alcohol. I am referring, of course, to the MLB postseason and the spraying of bubbly liquids in the locker room after a team has (a) […]

    15 Athletes with a Special Fondness for Prostitutes

    If there’s one thing that’s become clear to me in the years that I’ve been writing about sports, it’s that athletes generally do not have a difficult time finding love. And of course, by “finding love” I mean finding extremely hot women willing to get busy with and/or marry them. You therefore would not think […]

    Dante Hitner and 17 Other Athletes Who Changed Their Names

    After the 49ers’ week 4 destruction of the Rams, the NFL hit San Francisco safety Donte Whitner with a hefty $20,000 fine for what they deemed was an illegal hit on St. Louis receiver Chris Givens. As you would expect, Whitner wasn’t very happy about this, so he did what anyone in his situation would […]

That said, during football season, there are always countless wonderful games to wager upon (legally), and we’ve picked a few here that offer HUGE spreads. A game with a huge spread isn’t any more […]

  • 9 Most Memorable One-Game Playoffs And Tie Breakers In MLB History

    9 Most Memorable One-Game Playoffs And Tie Breakers In MLB History

    “One-game playoff” or “tie-breaker?” The nomenclature here can get a little confusing, so let’s clear things up before we get into the best examples in baseball history. However, because either term is basically an instance of the regular season failing us (How DARE you, regular season?), the device can be a little convoluted. All one-game […]

    9 Worst Stanley Cup Finals Hangovers of the Last 20 Years

    The 2013 NHL season was shortened because of the lockout, which was totally necessary. But the Blackhawks were dynamite right out of the gate, then they went on to beat the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals and get their names engraved on the Holy Grail for the second time in four years. It was […]

    The 2013 Major League Baseball Postseason gets underway tonight with the first of the two Wild Card games. How is it all going to play out?

    9 Worst College Football Coaching Hires of the BCS Era

    On Sunday, USC athletic director Pat Haden announced that USC had fired coach Lane Kiffin after an embarrassing 62-41 loss to Arizona State. If this were any other coach at any other school the timing would have been a little surprising, given that there is so much season left to right the ship. However, this […]

    9 Reasons Why Baseball Fans Do Not Like Bud Selig

    Yesterday it was announced that Allan Huber “Bud” Selig, the commissioner of Major League Baseball since 1992, will be retiring at the end of the 2014 season. This is big news.

    27 Animated GIFs of Kids Playing Sports

    Everyone knows that children are the future (unless they come between you and a home run ball). But guess what? It’s not the future yet, and until it is we are in charge of everything, including the Internet.

    25 Athlete-Celebrity Power Couples

    It’s not easy being married or otherwise romantically attached to a professional athlete. Or at least, I assume it’s not. I’ve never dated one. Sure, they usually make lots of money, but they basically are required to be workaholics, and during the season (whichever sport we’re talking about) they’re away from home half the time. […]
