    This Day In Sports History (December 17th) — Chris Henry

    It was on this day in 2009 that Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry passed away due to blunt force trauma to the head.

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/16/2013 – Justin Tucker

    If the Baltimore Ravens had to name their team’s MVP for the season today, who would it be?  Does Torrey Smith get the honors?  Maybe Daryl Smith?… …Or how about Justin Tucker?  After last night’s performance against the Detroit Lions, picking a field-goal kicker as the team’s MVP may not be such a bad idea […]

    Normally I love seeing a punter or kicker get clobbered on the football field. Maybe it’s because I grew up watching violent cartoons in which characters regularly got shot with cannons and dropped off cliffs, but there’s just something hilarious about seeing a (relatively) skinny little guy get run over by a 300-pound monster. However, […]

    No, Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots did not wet his pants. Why would you think that? Rather, it was rainy in Miami during Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, and all that water on the field had an unsettling effect on the opaqueness of his pants. It happened after Edelman was tackled in the […]

    Steven Jackson, running back for the Atlanta Falcons, recently showed the value in a larger running back during Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

    It’s not too rare to read about wardrobe malfunctions in sports nowadays. Let’s face it, all that strenuous physical activity is strenuous on the athletes’ clothes, as well as the athletes’ body.  So accidents are bound to happen.

    The Atlanta Hawks currently find themselves in third place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. However, that’s nothing to get excited about. Their record is just 12-12, and they’re only in third place because everyone else had the sense to gut their team and try for a high pick in the 2014 draft since there’s no […]

    Only a Canadian would ever say, “gee, I wonder if I could play hockey in a helicopter?” And only a Canadian would ever say, “oh man, that’s an awesome idea. I’ll help!” One morning in early December, somewhere in the Canadian Rockies, helicopter pilot Bradley Friesen woke up and decided it would be fun to […]

    Here’s an incident from yesterday’s Patriots-Dolphins game that the producers of Football Follies would probably enjoy. Brandon Fields, punter for the Miami Dolphins (and also the holder during field goals), looked away from a snap at exactly the wrong moment and ended up getting hit in the face with the ball. The snafu belies Fields’ in-game […]
