    9 Tragic Tour de France Deaths

    Cycling is not a particularly popular pro sport here in North America. Outside the Tour de France, the sport isn’t followed very closely by the media or fans, and even then the only names we know are the guys who win or get caught doping.

    Remember when the New Yankee Stadium first opened in 2009, and all anyone was talking about was all the empty, $2000 field-level seats visible on TV?

    It was a bright, sunny day in Winder, Georgia yesterday.  For some, that meant taking the kids to the Winder Barrow Speedway to catch some rays and enjoy some street stock racing.  For others, it meant attending that same racetrack to engage in some good ol’ fashion brawling.

    Yesterday Kobe Bryant, never the most humble man in sports, made headlines when he made the laughable claim that this year’s USA Olympic Men’s Basketball Team could defeat the original Dream Team from 1992.

    20 Best-Dressed Celebs and Athletes at the 2012 ESPY Awards

    On Wednesday night in Los Angeles, the biggest names in sports and Hollywood converged for the 20th annual ESPY Awards. Well okay, maybe not the biggest names in Hollywood—it was more like the Hollywood second- and third-stringers.
