    Fighting in hockey is all well and good when two combatants looking to do battle in order to ignite their respective teams decide to drop the gloves.  However, there is little room in the league for meatheads who feel inclined to throw fists at an unwilling participant, whether it be a player standing behind a […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/19/10 — Matt Cain

    Matt Cain is not exactly known as an ace, but he’s been a solid pitcher on the Giants staff for a few years now.  Last night he had to battle Cole Hamels to break a 1-1 tie in the NLCS.  Generally the winner of Game 3 is in the driver’s seat for most playoff series, […]

    2010 NFL Fantasy Football: Weekly Waiver Wire (Week 7)

    Another week.  Another hand-full of fantasy starters that look like they are headed for extended stays in the trainers room.  The likes of DeSean Jackson, Joseph Addai, Antonio Gates and Malcolm Floyd are just a few of the players that went down this week.  Perhaps the NFL’s initiative to take care of helmet-to-helmet hits will […]

    Some people say winning isn’t everything.  Try telling that to the coaches of the Peruvian second-division’s Sport Ancash, who decided it would be a good idea to drug members of the opposing team in a effort to win their match.

    Leeds United Player Swears During Live Interview (Video)

    We all know that the first words most people learn in foreign languages are the expletives.  And with that being said, it is probably not the best idea to ask an Italian speaking soccer player to do a post-game interview for an English speaking television network. Sky Sports made that mistake following Leeds United’s 2-1 […]
