    This Day In Sports History (December 11th) — Joe DiMaggio Retires

    It was on this day in 1951 that Joe DiMaggio announced his retirement from baseball.  The “Yankee Clipper” was 37-years-old when he made the announcement.

    Last night in college hoops action, the No. 19 Florida Gators handed the No. 13 Kansas Jayhawks their second consecutive loss, and their third in the last four.

    Some stories are just too good to be true. Take this one, just as an example – an incredibly drunk and angry Jets fan (and given the Jets’ performance this season, we can’t really blame him for being either of those things) went on an equally incredibly entertaining tirade that included liberal use of NSFW […]

    Just about every year we see at least one or two superstar athletes call it a career.

    This Day In Sports History (December 10th) — C.C. Sabathia
