    Flyers Mock The Lightning’s Defensive Trap (Video)

    No one is a fan of the 1-3-1 neutral zone trap in hockey.  Not the fans.  Not the media.  And certainly not the Philadelphia Flyers.  That was evident during last night’s game between the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, as it didn’t take long for the trap to take over.

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/9/11 — Craig Smith

    In a rematch of last year’s Western Conference first round playoff series between the Nashville Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, the Preds were looking for a similar result against their foes from California.  They would get the result that they were looking for, thanks in large part to a player who wasn’t involved in last […]

    9 Hottest Winter Sports Girls

    Well, it’s November, and there’s no basketball in the foreseeable future, so that means that the more esoteric winter sports will get more love than they normally do this time of year. It’s hard to keep up with winter sports athletes in non-Olympic years because there’s just not the exposure. Well, we strive to do […]

    Old Philadelphia Eagles Fan Freestyle Raps (Video)

    From the “Yup, this is totally real” file comes this video of an old man freestyle rapping in the parking lot of a Philadelphia Eagles‘ game. Apparently he learned how from the inmates at the correctional facility where he works. You can’t make this stuff up, kids. Watch as grandpa busts a funky lyric and […]

    Croatian Basketball Player Goes Nuts, Punches Ref (Video)

    Life is different in the former eastern bloc. Take this video for example. In Croatia, it’s apparently common to punch a ref when you don’t like a ruling. We’re kidding, of course. Supposedly, this player was banned for life from basketball, and probably forced to return to life as a fishmonger and machinist at the […]

    Post-Game LSU/Alabama Brawl Better Than Actual Game (Video)

    The next time your NFL-loyalist friend talks trash on college football, show him this. Not only was the LSU / Alabama game top notch, this epic brawl followed it. Maybe it’s a Southern thing, we’re not sure, but this fight is everything that’s great about college football. The best part might be the guy telling […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/8/11 — Niklas Backstrom

    The Minnesota Wild may not have been the best team on the ice at the Saddledome last night, but they had the best goalie, and that was all they needed. After backing up Josh Harding for four straight games, all Wild wins, Niklas Backstrom was given the opportunity to return to the starting role, and […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McQuaid vs. Martin — 11/7/11

    For the first time all season, the Boston Bruins appear to be clicking on all cylinders.  Their scores have been scoring, their goalies are making saves when called upon, and their fighters are getting the job done as well.  All of these factors were evident during last night’s game against the New York Islanders, as […]

    Listen To Ron Washington’s Profanity-Laden Game 7 Pep Talk (Audio)

    Remember when accomplished dancer Ron Washington said the Texas Rangers didn’t need a pep talk for Game 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals? He was lying. This profanity-laden speech is truly priceless. Knute Rockne he’s not, but it’s interesting to get a glimpse at what goes on behind closed doors in the Texas Rangers clubhouse […]
