    This Day In Sports History (September 15th) – Muhammad Ali

    It was on this day in 1978 that Muhammad Ali defeated Leon Spinks to regain the heavyweight championship belt.  The fight took place in front of a sold-out crowd at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Shockfights Introduces Tasers To MMA (Video)

    I’ll be honest with you.  I’m not sure what to say about Shockfights, besides the fact that it may very well be the craziest, most barbaric sport man has ever created.  Not only does it allow all the kicking, punching and grappling that is common during your typical mixed martial arts bout, but Shockfights adds […]

    Picture Of The Day: Danny Amendola’s Dislocated Elbow

    I’m no doctor, but judging by the looks of this picture, it appears as though St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola could be out for quite some time.  After leading the NFL in all-purpose yards (2,364) in 2010, the Texas Tech alum’s 2011 campaign got off to a rough start, as he suffered a […]

    Carolyn Still Is Soccer’s Sexiest CEO

    Feminists will probably tell you that we should be praising Carolyn Still for being the youngest CEO in English football and for breaking a barrier that has allowed only one other woman, West Ham vice-chairwoman Karren Brady, to join the executive ranks within the men’s game.  However, as a male who appreciates the sight of […]

    Sparks Fly Off Alex Avila’s Mask (Video)

    Sparks were flying at U.S. Cellular Field last night, and surprisingly, it had nothing to do with Ozzie Guillen or the White Sox inability to get their offense going against Tigers’ starting pitcher Justin Verlander.  Instead, the sparks that could be seen flying behind home plate in the bottom of the eighth inning had everything […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/13/11 — Dustin Pedroia

    If you gave the Boston Red Sox batters a choice of which starting pitcher in the Majors they would like to face most, there is a good chance they would choose Brandon Morrow of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Going into last night’s game, Morrow was posting a 13.83 ERA in three games this season against […]

    In the game of football, players often find themselves doing everything in their power to inflict pain on their opposition.  We see this time and time again as defensive backs drive their helmets into defenseless receivers and giant defensive linemen drive unsuspecting quarterbacks into the ground. But for every 100 times we see one of […]

    Picture Of The Day: An Odd Accessory

    As far as accessories on automobiles go, a bike rack on a Lamborghini Gallardo has to be among the strangest.  Not only is it somewhat of an eyesore to see a bike hanging on top of such a beautiful machine, but since when does someone who drives a Lamborghini need a bicycle?  I always thought […]
