    Gordeeva And Bure Win Battle Of The Blades Trophy, Break It (Video)

    What an embarrassing way to end the competition.  After announcing Valeri Bure and Katia Gordeeva as the Season 2 winners of Battle of the Blades, Ron MacLean handed the victors their trophy.  After admiring it for a few seconds, the credits began to roll and Gordeeva skated away with the trophy in her hands.  However, […]

    Schweinsteiger Honks On Muller’s Bobo Following Bayern Goal (Video)

    A few days ago I mentioned that I am really not surprised by anything I see within the game of soccer these days.  The crazy kung-fu kicks don’t surprise me.  The player-on-player biting doesn’t surprise me.  The headbutting doesn’t surprise me.  And I am certainly not surprised by the homoerotic goal celebrations. A couple of […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    It took Dirk Nowitzki’s entire arsenal, and some help from his teammates, for the Dallas Mavericks to overcome the lowly Detroit Pistons last night.  Thankfully for Dallas, Dirk’s arsenal is enormous and effective.  He was his usual self last night, scoring on a variety of 3-pointers, jumpers, layups, and post moves.  After trailing by as […]

    2010 NFL Fantasy Football: Weekly Waiver Wire (Week 12)

    With few big name players getting hit by the injury bug this weekend and the bye weeks a thing of the past, the waiver wire cupboard suddenly seems quite bare.  Most teams should have their starters set for the final playoff push, but for those less fortunate, there does happen to be some names that […]

    Marc Staal Rocks Matt Stajan With Hard Open-Ice Hit (Video)

    The NHL may be looking to crack down on blind-sided hits, but that is no excuse for players not to keep their heads up at all times.  Unfortunately for Matt Stajan, he would be forced to learn that lesson the hard way last night. With just over ten minutes remaining in the game, the Flames’ […]

    Picture Of The Day: Best Seat In The House!

    Do you think this guy even knows that there is a football game going on right in front of him?  On second thought, allow me to rephrase my question…. Do you think this guy even CARES that there is a football game going on right in front of him? I wouldn’t bet on it.  At […]

    9 Reasons Why We Love Thanksgiving Day NFL Games

    Asking most Americans why they love Thanksgiving Day football is like asking most humans why they are so fond of oxygen. It’s been with us so long that we take it for granted. We just know that one special Thursday in November would be really strange without it. Not content with that explanation? Here are […]

    Lindsey Vonn Plays Sharon Stone From “Basic Instinct” (Video)

    Last week we gave you a sneak peak of Ryan Miller playing the role of Carl Spackler from “Caddy Shack” for ESPN: The Magazine’s film issue.  The Sabres’ goalie appeared to make a great Spackler, but his resemblance to Bill Murray pales in comparison to the semblance shared by world class skier Lindsey Vonn and […]

    Spectacular Goal And Celebration FAIL! From Ibrahimovic (Video)

    We will start with the goal, which was perhaps the best this weekend’s slate of soccer action had to offer.  With the score tied nil-nil near the end of the first half, AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his stellar play by receiving the ball just outside the 6-yard box, and flicked it up before scissor-kicking […]

    Mace And Tasers Used To Stop High School Football Brawl (Video)

    With only 14.6 seconds remaining in the game, things got out of hand between players from the South Charleston and Hurricane high school football teams. Following the exchange of a few punches between players, both benches cleared and an all-out brawl ensued.  The fighting continued for the next 30 seconds before a Charleston police officer […]

    Alex Ovechkin Trades In Skates For Some Dancing Shoes (Video)

    Many of us have grown accustomed to watching Alex Ovechkin dance around defenders on the ice.  And after watching this clip of him busting his moves on the dance floor, may I be the first to say that he looks a whole lot smoother on skates. Those who know Ovechkin know that he is not […]

    Sidney Crosby’s Amazing Puck-Pyramid Trick (Video)

    Sidney Crosby is nothing short of magnificent with the puck on his stick.  The guy is a magician on ice.  If that wasn’t already evident following his slap-shot-net-adjustment drill, it is now after watching him pick off pucks along the ledge of the boards with his shot. Knocking off that pyramid is cool and all, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/22/10 — Philip Rivers

    So this is what the San Diego Chargers were supposed to look like.  I wasn’t sure after watching them stumble their way to a 4-5 start.  The 35-14 shellacking they handed Denver on Monday Night Football last night seemed more appropriately matched to the expectations of this season.  As inconsistent as they have been, however, […]
