    The New Red Wings Arena Looks Insanely Cool (Video)

    Detroit might be facing some pretty serious municipal issues, but don’t tell their sports fans when it comes to the under-construction Red Wing arena. However, of the $650 million development for the new currently-nameless arena and its surrounding area, “only” $285 million or so will be borne by the public. In an effort to drum up […]

    Michael Jordan Goes Super Saiyan After Hitting ‘The Shot’ (Video)

    I know that headline might not make a lot of sense to people who are older than about 30, so allow me to elaborate. Super Saiyan is a transformation in Dragonball Z that makes a character super-powerful. A reddit user by the name of noise_filter put the graphic on Michael Jordan after he hit “The Shot” […]

    LeBron May Have Given a Sneak Peak of the Nike LeBron 13s (Pic)

    LeBron James was wearing some new, unfamiliar shoes on the court at a Nike Basketball Academy event. Normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal, but because the celebrity in question is LeBron James, and the curious parties are sneakerheads, this is a VERY big deal. You see, the word finding its way through the Internet […]

    Brett Favre, At 45, Thinks He Could Still Play in the NFL

    It’s been four years since Pac-Man, Brett Favre, took a snap in the NFL. Even then, it was clear that his best years were way behind him.  He’s now 45 years old. When asked by Sports Illustrated if he could still play, he said yes. Then no. Then yes again. It was kind of confusing, […]

    Dee Gordon Shows His Wheels with an Inside the Park HR (Video)

    Normally, it takes a well-hit ball and a pretty monumental screw-up to tally an inside-the-park home run. However, Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins is so fast that it only takes a well-hit ball and a MEDIUM-SIZED screwup for him to get a four-bagger. Yup, the Giants outfielders seemed to need a second pass on […]

    You probably didn’t ask for some US Soccer Twitter beef, but we have some for you anyway. It all started with this Tweet from Landon Donovan following the USWNT’s 2-0 semi-final victory over Germany at the Women’s World Cup on Tuesday: Love the enthusiasm and veteran presence of @AbbyWambach despite not playing much.

  • Luke Ridnour is Being Traded to Every NBA Team This Summer

    Luke Ridnour is Being Traded to Every NBA Team This Summer

    Okay, so that title is a little misleading.  Luke Ridnour hasn’t been traded to every NBA team (at least not yet), but he has played for five teams in less than a week after being traded four times in the past week (including three times in two days last week). Ridnour began last week as […]

    Pro Golfers Exchange Twitter Beef Over Drake Music

    I’m not sure what’s crazier about this story: The fact that one professional golfer complained to PGA officials at the Travelers Championship about another pro golfer who was blasting Drake on the driving range, or the fact that a pro golfer was actually blasting Drake beats on the range? The two pro golfers in question are 29-year-old […]

    A Swarm of Seagulls Descended Upon Oakland Coliseum (Video)

    The Oakland A’s trounced the Rockies last night 7-1, but the circumstances of their victory is far more interesting than just another lopsided regular season baseball game. A swarm (flock?) of seagulls invaded Oakland Coliseum and… …didn’t really do anything. Needless to say, it was pretty much the most exciting part of the game. They […]
