    9 of the Most Charitable Athletes of All Time

    Professional athletes worked hard to get where they are, and they continue to work hard day in and day out to stay on top of their game. However, the guy who picks up my garbage works pretty damn hard, too. Same goes for the dude who drives the bus down my street and the lady […]

    Less money, decreased popularity and the level of competition are just a few things preventing many of the world’s elite soccer players from taking the trip across the Atlantic to play in the MLS.  I am going to assume that the sudden rise in gruesome leg-breaking tackles isn’t helping the North American soccer league’s cause […]

    The Vancouver Canucks entered Game 6 in Nashville last night needing a win to end their second-round series and move onto the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 1994.  They held a 2-1 lead after two periods, but with only nine shots on goal at that point, and an embarrassing total of two […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/9/11 — LeBron James

    After leaving Miami with a 2-0 series lead, the Miami Heat did not want to return to the friendly confines of American Airlines Arena with the series tied at 2-2.  In order to prevent such a scenario from happening, they would need to win Game 4 on the road in Boston. They did just that, […]

    The NHL playoffs often provide stories about heroic performances from players who demonstrate an impressive ability to sacrifice their bodies and play through injuries.  However, at times the story during this year’s playoffs has been the continuous efforts of players to embellish even the slightest infraction in order to earn a power-play.

    This clip is amazing, awe-inspiring and hilarious all in one. During a Japanese League baseball game on May 6th between Seibu and Rakuten, sportswriter Hirotada Ototake threw out the opening pitch.  What makes this both amazing and awe-inspiring is the fact that Ototake was born with no arms or legs.  He is popular in his […]

    Picture Of The Day: Unanimously Wrong

    Yesterday afternoon the Dallas Mavericks accomplished what may have been one of the most unexpected feats in NBA history when they completed their four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers entered the 2010-11 regular season as favorites to win it all, and they were still considered among the top contenders once the post-season […]

    11 Popular Pop Songs That Name-Check Athletes

    Sports and music go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Both professions garner notoriety, breed a culture of financial indiscretion, and both are just kind of awesome. So it’s no wonder that the two bleed together, like when LeBron James refused to acknowledge a beef with DeShawn Stevenson, saying that would be like “Jay-Z getting […]

    Earlier this year we showed you a brilliant replica of Ohio Stadium that 42-year-old Ohio State professor Paul Janssen created in his Dublin basement using one million Lego pieces. Seeing as how Fenway Park has a capacity of only 37,500, compared to Ohio Stadium’s 102,000, I think it is fair to assume that this Lego […]

    There were questions surrounding the health and availability of Pavel Datsyuk entering Game 5, as he was listed as questionable with a wrist injury.  However, with the Wings in a must-win situation, Datsyuk not only took part in last night’s game, but he would prove to be the difference in the Wings’ 4-3 comeback victory.

    This is one way to tenderize your steaks! One second thought, I think I’d rather opt for the more traditional process of simply pounding away at the meat with a metal meat tenderizer .  Not only is it safer, but it is probably a lot cheaper as well.
