    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/31/10 – Ubaldo Jimenez

    Ubaldo Jimenez has had an unbelievable season this year.  He has looked liked a Cy Young pitcher in every single outing  he’s had.  In just 11 starts, the pitcher has now accumulated a 10-1 record.  He is just the third pitcher to win 10 games in his first 11 starts with an ERA under 1.00 and the […]

    With the Chicago Blackhawks taking Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, it was a near given that the Philadelphia Flyers were going to turn up the grit and toughness a notch in Game 2 and try to steal home ice.  Flyers coach Peter Laviolette knew if the Flyers were going to bring the nasty, […]

    He Did What? (GIF)

    I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that this is the same guy who used a trampoline to dress himself. After all, both tricks showed the same levels of creativity and athleticism, and were executed to perfection.  Come to think of it, I would be surprised to hear that it wasn’t the same guy! Hmmm…I wonder […]

    Picture Of The Day: Argh, My Groin!

    Perhaps the best images in sports are those taken at a perfect moment.  Sometimes that moment may occur when a biker has fallen off his bike, when a baseball player watches himself in the outfield jumbotron, thus creating an optical illusion, or when Jay Bruce decides to flip off his own dugout. I think it […]

    Mike Conway Goes Airborne In Wild Indy 500 Crash (Video)

    Motorsports and crashes seem to go hand in hand, so it was therefore not much of a surprise to see a crash at yesterday afternoon’s Indy 500, but the manner in which Mike Conway’s car went spiraling into the air did leave many spectators in awe. With only one lap remaining in the race, the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/30/10 – Albert Pujols

    When it comes to hitting home runs, Albert Pujols has somewhat struggled thus far this season, at least by his standards.  Coming into yesterday afternoon’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals first baseman had only managed to hit nine out of the park through the first two months, but a big game against the Chicago Cubs […]

    Picture Of The Day – Balance

    If you ever hear somebody giving swimmers crap about their sport, step in and call them an idiot.  Swimming isn’t my first sport of choice, by any means, but it’s pretty physically taxing and I respect anybody who can do it well (especially smoke weed and do it well).  After seeing this picture, I guess […]

    Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    It’s pretty funny to see a dog look himself, long and hard, in the mirror and then tilt his head to the side because he’s not sure if it’s him or another dog, whose heiny he should be sniffing.  Well, it’s about ten times funnier seeing a confused left fielder looking into the outfield wall […]

    How Long Before We See This Move In MMA? (GIF)

    The inverted triangle choke applied by Toby Imada on Jorge Masvida at the Bellator V Championships was perhaps one of the most impressive submissions I had ever witnessed…until today. I am not even sure what you would call this shoulder lock, but I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before we are […]

    Wheel Him Outta Here! (Video)

    I can’t help but think that this may be just about the greatest exit from a baseball game ever.  Forget about all those guys who want to throw beer and punches at one another before having security take them by the arm and usher them out.  This guy knows how to exit a party in […]

    Picture Of The Day: This Is How You Make A Corvette Disappear

    I am going to assume that somewhere under the back of his truck this guy had one of those bumper stickers that reads “If you can read this, you’re too close.”  Unfortunately, once the guy in the Corvette got “to close,” it was “too late.” I am still trying to figure out how this happened […]

    Is ‘Air Jordan’ Now ‘Ice Jordan’?

    Throughout the 90s, Chicago was a town fixated on the Bulls and their six NBA championships.  Much of that was the result of Michael “Air” Jordan, and for all the winning he brought to the Windy City, they decided to give a little something back; a statue of His Airness in his most popular pose.

    This Stanley Cup Commercial Will Leave You Speechless (Video)

    For soccer fans,  Nike’s most recent commercial for the upcoming World Cup likely left goosebumps on your skin.  And for hockey fans, the NHL’s most recent Stanley Cup commercial will undoubtedly leave you speechless. After six weeks of grueling playoff action, the finals are set as the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks will do […]
