    Jordan Spieth Wins US Open After Dustin Johnson 3-Putt on 18th (Video)

    Jordan Spieth won his second consecutive major title today when he followed up this year’s Masters victory with a first-place finish at the US Open.  Sadly, the story was as much about this year’s second-place finisher, Dustin Johnson, as it was about the 21-year-old phenom from Texas.

    You’d think after last year’s Kentucky Derby, Wes Welker would shy away from horse racing. The Oklahoma native was seen a bit out of sorts last year, tossing cash around. Later on, it was determined that he failed a drug test due to some molly (MDMA) he took at the affair. However, the chemical romance […]

    Alex Rodriguez has been public enemy #1 in the baseball world over the past couple of years, but he’s done anything and everything he can to change that this season.  And is seems to be working, as the Yankees slugger was cheered, not booed, after he drilled a home run off Justin Verlander on Friday […]

    Warriors Owner Declares Golden State Über Alles at Rally (Video)

    I’m sure that the Warriors owner, Joe Lacob, throwing up a pretty egregious Nazi salute was just an accident, but come on. Be careful, Joe. You’re a really public guy. In the Bay Area. You can’t go around throwing up hateful gestures during rallies. Even if you’re the Warriors owner after an NBA Championship. You […]
