    Top NFL Prospect Shane Ray Cited For Marijuana Possession

    Here’s a good way to absolutely destroy your draft stock: Go speeding down an interstate highway while carrying some weed in your car on the same week as the NFL Draft.

    ESPN2 Airs Live Video Game Competition, Twitter Goes Nuts

    Ask any habitual channel-flipper to name some of the crazy stuff they’ve seen on ESPN2, and they’ll probably have multiple interesting answers. There are the old standbys like World’s Strongest Man or sumo wrestling, or something that I believe was called “Airwave,” a kind of summer ski jump competition that I saw in high school (unless […]

However, he is the funniest human being you’ll see on the Internet today. […]

    Collision Between Runner and 1st Baseman Floors Both (Video)

    When you think of nasty collisions between defensive players and baserunners in baseball, you almost always think of catchers and big plays at home plate. You almost never think of first base, because the 1st baseman doesn’t have to block the bag. It’s a force out, so it makes more sense for him to be […]

    Pair of ’84 Game-Worn Jordan Nikes Fetch $71,000

    The game-worn Michael Jordan Nikes that sold for $71,553 this weekend aren’t the most expensive pair of Jordan’s shoes that have ever sold.  Then again, they weren’t even his signature Jordan brand shoe.

    Rick Carlisle Responds to Game 3 Fine with a Taped Mouth (Video)

    Rick Carlisle got hit with a $25,000 fine after Friday’s loss to the Rockets when he criticized the officiating, so after game 4′s desperate victory, he took measures to ensure it wouldn’t happen again.
