    The Trailer for the ‘Rocky’ Prequel ‘Creed’ Hits Hard (Video)

    It would have been pretty easy for the producers and cast behind the Rocky prequel Creed to just coast on name recognition. That’s what they did for Rocky 5 and Rocky Balboa.

    Shaq Completely Missed the Ball on a Pro-Am Drive (Video)

    Generally, the bigger someone is, the worse at golf they’re going to be. If that theory is applied linearly, then Shaq should be considered about a third as good a golfer as a regular-sized person. Because he’s three times as big.

    Detroit might be facing some pretty serious municipal issues, but don’t tell their sports fans when it comes to the under-construction Red Wing arena. However, of the $650 million development for the new currently-nameless arena and its surrounding area, “only” $285 million or so will be borne by the public. In an effort to drum up […]

    Michael Jordan Goes Super Saiyan After Hitting ‘The Shot’ (Video)

    I know that headline might not make a lot of sense to people who are older than about 30, so allow me to elaborate. Super Saiyan is a transformation in Dragonball Z that makes a character super-powerful. A reddit user by the name of noise_filter put the graphic on Michael Jordan after he hit “The Shot” […]

    Dee Gordon Shows His Wheels with an Inside the Park HR (Video)

    Normally, it takes a well-hit ball and a pretty monumental screw-up to tally an inside-the-park home run. However, Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins is so fast that it only takes a well-hit ball and a MEDIUM-SIZED screwup for him to get a four-bagger. Yup, the Giants outfielders seemed to need a second pass on […]
