    Stanford’s Marching Band Got Weird at the Rose Bowl (GIF)

    In case you’re not up on your university marching bands, you should know that the Stanford University marching band (or “Stanford Band” for short) is known for their irreverent antics on the field. So their performance at the 2013 Rose Bowl was actually kind of restrained by their standards, but still worth reporting on here. […]

    Cody Zeller Starts Off 2014 With Terrible Missed Dunk (GIF)

    Hopefully your 2014 hasn’t had any major missteps yet, especially since we’re only on the second day and all. But unfortunately, there’s one member of the Charlotte Bobcats who can’t make any such claim.  That member is Cody Zeller, who had an already-bad New Year’s Eve turn worse when he missed an open slam dunk […]

    This Day In Sports History (January 2nd) — Notre Dame

    It was on this day in 1989 that Notre Dame defeated West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl to earn the 1988 NCAA National Championship title. The Fighting Irish and the Mountaineers both entered the game with perfect 11-0 records, which meant that for the second time in three years, the Fiesta Bowl would also act […]

  • The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The NHL’s Winter Classic is not about showcasing hockey’s speed and skill. The goal is to remind everyone—in the dead of winter—that hockey is the winter sport par excellence. And yesterday the annual New Year’s Day outdoor game did exactly that. With 105,491 fans at Michigan’s famous “Big House”—braving snow and a game time temperature […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/1/2014 — Jeremy Hill

    Jeremy Hill has been one of the most dynamic running backs throughout the 2013 college football season, and the LSU Tiger capped off his impressive campaign in style during Wednesday’s Outback Bowl against Iowa. Hill was handed the rock 28 times, and he turned that into 216 yards and two touchdowns during LSU’s 21-14 victory. […]

    Memphis Grizzlies Draft 8-Year-Old for Make-A-Wish Foundation

    In previous eras, getting drafted was no one’s idea of a wish come true. But times have changed, and now drafts are pretty much the exclusive domain of sports teams like the Memphis Grizzlies, who (along with the Make-A-Wish Foundation) used their drafting powers for an unusually good cause, drafting 8-year-old Charvis Brewer to the […]

    Georgia Tech Fake Punt Ends Disastrously (GIF)

    Football has often been likened to open warfare, as two teams square off to invade the other’s territory and so forth. Well, if you want to extend the combat metaphor to this fake punt by Georgia Tech from yesterday’s Music City Bowl, it was the equivalent of accidentally throwing the firing pin out of your […]

    Heat’s Norris Cole Falls and Smashes His Face on the Court (Video)

      One tough thing about basketball is that there just isn’t any give in that hardwood floor. Norris Cole of the Miami Heat learned this firsthand (or should I say “firstface”?) during last night’s game between the Heat and the Denver Nuggets in Denver. Cole was already feeling some pressure during the game as he […]

    New York Jets Players Celebrate Rex Ryan’s Return (Video + GIF)

    I’ve never been on a professional football team before, but I imagine that in at least one way it’s a lot like any other job—you’ve got some bosses that you like more than others. And if the sight of the New York Jets celebrating head coach Rex Ryan‘s return for another season is to be […]

    This Day In Sports History (December 31st) — Mario Lemieux

    It was on this day in 1988 that Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux scored five goals in five different ways.  Lemieux recorded a goal at even-strength, shorthanded, on the power-play, on a penalty shot and into an empty-net. Lemieux became the first, and remains the only, player to accomplish this impressive feat.  Along with scoring […]

    Hilarious Mock Text Convo Between Jerry Jones and Tony Romo

    Another disappointing season has come and gone for Tony Romo, Jerry Jones, and the Dallas Cowboys.  And while the Cowboys’ owner continues to show support for his starting quarterback in public, that same sense of support and confidence doesn’t appear to be present during Jones’ private text message conversations with Romo. Check it out: Hat […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/30/2013 — Jrue Holiday

    Tyreke Evans will receive plenty of the praise for the New Orleans Pelicans’ 110-108 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, and he should.  After all, he did sink the game-winning shot with 1.2 seconds remaining to cap off a 20-point performance. But it wasn’t just Evans who was leading the Pelicans on this […]
