    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’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

    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, […]

    A Complete Primer On Fantasy Football (Infographic)

    Fantasy football is a fantasy sports game in which participants (called “owners”) are arranged into a competitive league, earning “Fantasy Points” by using statistics of real football players.  The owners of each league draft real-life NFL players, filling a roster containing the various offense or defense positions on a team. Word of advice from the […]

    2010 Fantasy Football: Monday NFL Rewind (Week 11)

    What a weekend it was in the NFL! Although the Chicago Bears and the Miami Dolphins’ Thursday night battle would prove to be one of the worst games of the season, it was clearly not an indication of what we should come to expect from the remainder of the week 11 schedule.  Sunday’s slate of […]

    Colorado Rapids Win MLS Cup On Own-Goal (Video)

    What a way to win your first MLS Cup!  Seventeen minutes into extra time, Colorado forward Macoumba Kandji made a move around a defender along the end line before chipping a shot towards the FC Dallas goal, which ricocheted off George John and into the back of the net.  That would be enough to give […]

    Texas A&M’s Tony Jerod-Eddie Probes Nebraska’s Ben Cotton (Video)

    Didn’t Tony Jerod-Eddie’s parents ever teach him to keep his hands to himself?  I doubt it, else he probably would have thought twice before digging his left hand deep into the mid-section of Nebraska’s Ben Cotton during Saturday night’s game. And if the feeling of being violated wasn’t bad enough for Cotton, he was also […]

    AHL Goalie Barry Brust Gives Us His Best Ron Hextall Impersonation (Video)

    What was with all the sports impersonations this weekend?  First there was Inter’s Samuel Eto’o, who unleashed his inner Zinedine Zidane as he headbutted Chievo’s Cesar in the chest.  And if that wasn’t enough, both the Raiders Richard Seymour and Ajax’s Luis Suarez decided to perform their own unique impersonations of “Iron” Mike Tyson, with […]
