    High School Hockey Player Scores, Presses The Easy Button (Video)

    When David Goodwin of De Smet Jesuit High School’s varsity hockey team toe-dragged the puck into the center of the ice and roofed it over the opposing goaltender, he couldn’t have made it look any easier.  And in an effort to ensure that everyone in attendance was aware of just how easy scoring that goal […]

    They may not be 0-16, but with a 2-9 record, the Detroit Lions are still bad enough for The Simpsons to poke fun at them.  However, when bartender Moe Szyslak is among those doing the insulting, you know your franchise has hit rock bottom. While most football fans were likely watching the Chargers thrash the […]

    Picture Of The Day: The Sky Is The Limit

    Watching professional athletes compete at high levels every day may cause some people to take for granted some of the basic abilities that many of us share, such as walking and running.  Unfortunately, there are those that were born without such abilities, but rather than use their so-called “disabilities” as an excuse, some individuals use […]

    The Breakfast of Champions: 15 Iconic (and, or Ironic) Wheaties Boxes

    “Better eat your Wheaties,” was once a common response to a child saying they wished to be a professional athlete. Originally, it was a marketing slogan, but it became a popular refrain, which must have put the Wheaties ad guys on cloud nine. Few products are so closely linked with champions (sorry, Buick) as Wheaties, […]

    Lukas Podolski Delivers A Kick To The Groin (Video)

    Perhaps the only play in soccer more devastating than the violent kung-fu kick to the chest is the ever-so-excruciating front kick to the groin.  Don’t believe me?  Just ask Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko, whose midsection was on the receiving end of Lukas Podolski’s cleats during a 1-1 draw with Cologne. Podolski was assessed a yellow card […]

    Those who decided to gut it out and watch the final quarter of the San Francisco 49ers blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals likely witnessed ESPN commentator and former NFL head coach John Gruden chew out Cards quarterback Derek Anderson for laughing with offensive lineman Deuce Lutui on the sideline as his team trailed 24-6.

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/29/10 — Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant may be the new young face of the NBA and an MVP candidate, but he may not even be the best player on his team.  Russell Westbrook has been having an outstanding start to the season and some say he may be more of a reason for the Thunder’s success than even Durant himself.  […]

    With three games being played on Thanksgiving Day, and a total of six games being played later on in the afternoon and evening on Sunday, that left Sunday’s one o’clock slate with only six games, but what an amazing six games they turned out to be.  Of those six games, five were decided by four […]

    Cortland Finnegan wasn’t the only Tennessee Titan getting beat up by the Houston Texans yesterday afternoon.  Rookie quarterback Rusty Smith was also on the receiving end of a rather harsh ass-kicking.  Although his came in the form of three interceptions, rather than a few punches to the face.
