  • The J.J. Watt Diet Is Roughly 9,000 Calories per Day

    The J.J. Watt Diet Is Roughly 9,000 Calories per Day

    It doesn’t seem like J.J. Watt half-asses a lot of things, so when the star defensive end went to “fuel up” with his training coach since high school, he did it in true J.J. Watt-ian fashion—which, of course, means a diet consisting of 9,000 calories a day. ESPN doesn’t give us the fun meal-by-meal breakdown that […]

    Brandon Weeden Slaps Away Fumble Hilariously in Preseason Game (Video)

    Brandon Weeden isn’t exactly competing for the Dallas Cowboys‘ starting job at QB. I think Tony Romo has that gig on lockdown. But still, Weeden probably could have made more of an effort to recover this botched snap from last night’s preseason (can we just call them scrimmages?) game against the Chargers, which kicked off their slate […]

    The Bills Duct Taped and Drenched Rookie Ronald Darby (Video)

    It’s been a whole season since the ugly Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident, so I guess we’ve healed enough to get back to some good-natured NFL hazing, eh? The Buffalo Bills thought so as they duct-taped rookie cornerback Ronald Darby to the goal posts and dumped some ice water on him. An age-old tradition for rookies […]

    We might be in the dregs of the basketball offseason, with free agency over and a while before training camps, but Klay Thompson managed to still sneak in a moment of excitement in the White vs. Blue game for the USA national team. On something resembling a fastbreak, Klay Thompson saw that the shortest distance […]

    Rogers Cup Crowd Boos Nick Kyrgios On And Off The Court (Video)

    At the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday, Aussie tennis player Nick Kyrgios created a firestorm of controversy when he told Stan Wawrinka that another player “banged” his girlfriend. The problem, of course, was not merely that the comment was crude. It was that Wawrinka’s girlfriend is 19-year-old Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic, and Kyrgios […]

    Johnny Manziel Looks Good During 12-Yard TD Run (Video)

    Thursday night marked the start of a highly-anticipated sophomore season for Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. Has he improved his game?  Will we see a more mature Johnny Football in 2015? While we didn’t get any definitive answers during the Browns’ 20-17 loss to Washington, Manziel did give us reason to be optimistic with an impressive […]

    Pierre Garcon Drops Wide Open TD Pass From RGIII (Video)

    The NFL preseason has just begun, and that’s a great thing for Washington wideout Pierre Garcon, because if this dropped pass is any indication, he’s got quite a bit of rust to shake off before his team’s season opener on September 13: You had one job http://t.co/vsk7Od9j6s — Nate Butler Jr. (@ATLSportsNate) August 14, 2015 […]

    Those who tuned into Tuesday’s season premiere of HBO’s Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Houston Texans may have noticed the segment focusing on Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins‘ battle with Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall.  During the 90-second piece, Hopkins and Hall are seen jawing at each other until the two of them line up and […]

    Most athletes will receive the occasional request to autograph a fan’s undergarment or body part .  Pretty standard stuff. And then there’s Tim Tebow, whose autograph requests can be more Godly at times—like on Wednesday, when the Eagles quarterback was asked to sign a bible at training camp. And being the nice guy that he is, Tebow […]

    James Harden Joins Adidas For $200-Million

    Goodbye Nike.  Hello Adidas. Houston Rockets guard James Harden has ditched the swoosh for the three stripes after Adidas offered the all-star a 13-year, $200 million deal that Nike refused to match. The partnership between Harden and Adidas does not begin until October 1, so don’t expect to see him in any of the company’s […]

    Steph Curry Nutmegs Coach at USA Basketball Training Camp (Video)

    In case you were wondering whether 2014-15 NBA NVP Steph Curry had suddenly gotten awful at basketball since we saw him hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy over his head about eight weeks ago, the answer is no, he has not. Like almost every other superstar in the NBA, from Kevin Durant to LeBron James, Curry […]
