    ESPN2 Airs Live Video Game Competition, Twitter Goes Nuts

    Ask any habitual channel-flipper to name some of the crazy stuff they’ve seen on ESPN2, and they’ll probably have multiple interesting answers. There are the old standbys like World’s Strongest Man or sumo wrestling, or something that I believe was called “Airwave,” a kind of summer ski jump competition that I saw in high school (unless […]

    Arsenal Keeper Lays Bone-Crushing Tackle on Chelsea’s Oscar (Video)

    Looks like Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina got his footballs mixed up during Sunday’s crucial English Premier League battle between the Gunners and Chelsea, as he leveled the Blues’ Oscar with a bone-crushing tackle.  And we’re not talking about the association football-type of tackle you typically see during a soccer match—usually referred to as a slide-tackle.

    This Weightlifting Spotter Has the Best Move Ever (Video)

    In weightlifting, spotters exist for three reasons: to encourage and motivate, to protect from injury, and to monitor form. While the guy in this video TECHNICALLY does all three of those things, it’s easy to see that this spotter isn’t exactly world-class. However, he is the funniest human being you’ll see on the Internet today. […]

  • Collision Between Runner and 1st Baseman Floors Both (Video)

    Collision Between Runner and 1st Baseman Floors Both (Video)

    When you think of nasty collisions between defensive players and baserunners in baseball, you almost always think of catchers and big plays at home plate. You almost never think of first base, because the 1st baseman doesn’t have to block the bag. It’s a force out, so it makes more sense for him to be […]

    Pair of ’84 Game-Worn Jordan Nikes Fetch $71,000

    The game-worn Michael Jordan Nikes that sold for $71,553 this weekend aren’t the most expensive pair of Jordan’s shoes that have ever sold.  Then again, they weren’t even his signature Jordan brand shoe. Given to a Lakers ball boy in late 1984, these Jordan shoes were actually Nike Air Ships that Jordan used as holdovers […]

    Rick Carlisle Responds to Game 3 Fine with a Taped Mouth (Video)

    Rick Carlisle got hit with a $25,000 fine after Friday’s loss to the Rockets when he criticized the officiating, so after game 4′s desperate victory, he took measures to ensure it wouldn’t happen again. Those measures included putting duct tape over his mouth, abduction-style, to prevent him from saying anything that might cost him some […]

    Ben Crane Uses Adjacent Fairway as a Shortcut off Tee (Video)

    The Zurich Classic of New Orleans may not be as esteemed a tournament as many of the others on the PGA tour. So while that means that golfers may not study their course strategy as much, there will also likely be some hacks that go unnoticed by the crew and the field. Ben Crane found […]

    Is this Wizards Fan the Worst Dancer in the World? Yes. (Video)

    It’s one thing to dance like an idiot at a sporting event. That’s fine. Everyone does that when their team is winning. It’s another thing to do what this Wizards fan did and just break out every crappy dance more there is to put on display in earnest. If this guy was doing these things […]

    Paul Pierce Trolls Raptors and Drake Following Series Sweep (Pics)

    Prior to his team’s opening-round NBA playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards veteran Paul Pierce claimed that the Raps didn’t have the “it” factor needed to instill fear into their post-season opponent. Pierce was obviously spot-on with his pre-series comments, as his Wizards swept the higher-ranked Raptors with ease. And following the Washington’s […]

    9 Old Athletes Who Deserve a Late-Career Comeback

    It’s hard to watch old athletes, especially the iconic ones. It’s only natural that skills and health fades over the course of a sports career, but it’s still a tough pill to swallow. Which is way a late-career comeback helps soften the pain of fading away. To paraphrase the adage, athletic careers end poorly, otherwise they wouldn’t end. […]

    Adrian Peterson has served his suspension for recklessly assaulting his 4-year-old son last summer.  Having been officially reinstated by the NFL, the Minnesota Vikings running back is probably looking forward to moving on and putting that horrible incident behind him, but before he does so, the writers of Family Guy figured they’d take the opportunity […]
