    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/12/10 — David Ortiz

    He is known affectionately as “Big Papi” around the league, but David Ortiz’s bat was anything but big to start the season.  In fact, in April his offensive numbers were so bad that there were rumors he might be traded.  Fast forward to last night and things had completely changed.  After that abysmal April Ortiz […]

    Perhaps this kid is practicing for a trip off the edge of Niagara Falls.  Or maybe he was just bored.  Whatever the case may be, I think he has just helped us add to our list of hybrid sports.  It may not be quite as extreme as some other others we have seen in the […]

    Wheelchair Man Invades The Field During CFL Game

    Seeing fans storm the field at a sporting event is nothing new.  Even within the Canadian Football League, where games have been interrupted before by some rather dramatic antics.  But does it get any more dramatic than a man on a motorized wheelchair zipping across the field?  How the hell did he even get that […]

    Perhaps it is a good thing Germany did not win the World Cup, else there may have been plenty more Deutschland douchebags falling out of cars and ending up on the ground, like this guy. What was he celebrating anyways? A quarterfinal victory? Your team didn’t win, and you had to suffer the pain of […]

    It was a marvelous World Cup run that ended in triumph.  And no, we are not talking about the Spaniards, who captured their first ever World Cup title with a 1-0 extra time win over the Netherlands on Sunday.  Instead, we are referring to Paul the Octopus, who correctly predicted all eight of the games […]

    How Many Useless Talents Can One Man Have? (Video)

    I don’t think I have ever seen a man with so many useless talents before in my life.  I mean, his parkour skills are quite impressive, as are his juggling and yahtzee rolling abilities, but can any of these actually earn you a decent living?  I wouldn’t count on it. At first I was in […]

    Is The LeBron-Bosh-Wade Intro Sports’ Most Pitiful Moment?

    It was pathetic enough to see LeBron James decide to abandon Cleveland and “take [his] talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat,” but it doesn’t get any more embarrassing than the introduction of the Heat’s new “Big Three”, which took place the following day in Miami. These guys haven’t even won a game […]

    Less than one week from securing a Stat Line of the Night, Carlos Quentin has done it again, this time propelling his red hot Chicago White Sox into first place in the AL Central.  The White Sox had a terrible start to the season and had some people calling for the heads of front office […]

    It is a great feeling for any soccer player to be playing in the finals of a World Cup, unless you are Spain’s Xabi Alonso, who was on the receiving end of this devastating kick from the Netherlands’ Nigel De Jong. It was the type of kick that is capable of breaking ribs and collapsing […]

    Is Jousting Back? (Video)

    I thought the only place you could see jousting these days was at Medieval Times.  I guess I was wrong.  Apparently it is alive and well in the southern United States, and if the New York Times is correct, it may very well become the next big extreme sport. After taking a look at this […]
