    What’s A Packer? (Video)

    Now that the Green Bay Packers have won the Super Bowl for the first time in 14 years, perhaps we should begin to ask ourselves the question, “What exactly is a Packer?” Few people actually know the answer to this question, and that should come as no surprise seeing as how their symbol is a […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Lovejoy — 2/8/11

    Saved by the official.  That was how Derek Dorsett must have felt following a fight with Ben Lovejoy last night.  After delivering a flurry of punches to the face of the Penguins’ enforcer, Dorsett found himself with a jersey over his head.  Unable to see, the Blue Jackets’ tough guy was about to endure a […]

    UConn’s Johnny McEntee Is One Heck Of A Trick-Shot Quarterback (Video)

    As the third-string quarterback at the University of Connecticut, Johnny McEntee must be awfully bad at reading coverages and staying patient in the pocket.  With an arm like that, how else would one explain his poor position on the team’s depth chart? I’ll bet you Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Mallet can’t nail garbage cans and […]

    Picture Of The Day: Lingerie Bowl Wardrobe Malfunction

    This year’s halftime show at the Super Bowl was considered by many to be among the worst ever.  What the Black Eyed Peas probably could have used was a wardrobe malfunction.  That didn’t happen, as the NFL’s big game wouldn’t be providing any accidental nudity this year.  The 2011 Lingerie Bowl, on the other hand, […]

    Check Out This Incredible 90-Foot Buzzer-Beater (Video)

    Perhaps the only thing more incredible than this basket is the cheesiness of the accompanying graphics and effects.  Black & Yellow?  Are you kidding me?  I figured that song would have died along with the Penguins’ Stanley Cup hopes and the Steelers’ Super Bowl run. As for the shot, it was just about as remarkable […]

    15 Female Athletes That Could Snap You Like A Twig

    We spend a lot of time at TPS talking about the hottest women in sports, but of course there is a totally different facet to female athletes that merits discussion – many of them could beat the crap out of you. Granted men have a genetic advantage when it comes to strength, but that advantage […]

    Taxpayers Pay $450,000 For Fly-Over Cowboys Stadium’s Closed Roof

    If you thought a bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers, the under, or tails was the biggest waste of money one could experience on Super Bowl Sunday, think again. When it comes to spending unnecessary money on Super Bowl Sunday, few, if any, did a better job than the city of Dallas, who figured it would […]

    Following a dirty knee from the Penguins’ Matt Cooke on the Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin during the final minutes of Sunday afternoon’s game, Caps’ coach Bruce Boudreau had this to say: “It’s Matt Cooke. Need we say more?” Boudreau said. “It’s not like it’s his first rodeo. He’s done it to everybody. And then he goes to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/8/11 — Drew Stafford

    Heading into the third period trailing the Tampa Bay Lightning by a goal on the road, few gave the Buffalo Sabres a realistic shot at completing the comeback against the Eastern Conference’s second place team.  Those who counted them out, however, couldn’t have been more surprised with what they would witness next. The Sabres were […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Neil vs. Rome — 2/7/11

    Last night’s NHL action didn’t produce much in terms of exciting fights, but it did produce one somewhat interesting battle between the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Neil and the Vancouver Canucks Aaron Rome.  What made this fight interesting was how it started. After running over Henrik Sedin, Neil was confronted by his twin brother, Daniel, but […]

    Following the unveiling of his many acts of infidelity, Tiger Woods has seen plenty of endorsement opportunities fly out the window over the past year, but perhaps he may be on the verge of turning things around in 2011. As for his first new gig, it appears to be coming from Indian, where the mattress […]

    Picture Of The Day: Take That Beijing!

    I hope your sarcasm detector was on while reading that. Drawing/creating a perfect circle is not an easy feat to accomplish.  China came close during the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics (right).  As for the performers on the field during Sunday’s halftime show at Super Bowl XLV (left), it appears as though they […]

    The 16,300 Kansas Jayhawk fans in attendance during yesterday’s men’s basketball game against the Missouri Tigers were rocking the Allen Fieldhouse all night long.  And while the “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk” chant could be heard echoing throughout the building for much of the game, it was what happened during a stoppage in play that really sent […]
