    Did the Broncos Try to Trade Peyton Manning to the Texans?

    There’s been a dearth of juicy sports news since the NBA and NHL both wrapped up their seasons last week. That means it is the perfect time for a juicy NFL trade rumor. Conveniently enough, that’s what we have for you today. According to Benjamin Albright of 94.1FM in Denver, the Broncos tried to trade […]

    Cubs Fan Catches Foul Ball While Carelessly Holding a Baby (Video)

    During the second inning of Tuesday night’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, a Cubs fan seated behind first base made what he thought was a great one-handed grab on a pop fly in foul territory. Here’s why it wasn’t so great: 1. After reviewing the play, it was determined […]

  • POV Video: What It’s Like to Catch a Derek Carr Pass

    POV Video: What It’s Like to Catch a Derek Carr Pass

    Derek Carr isn’t among the NFL’s top quarterbacks at the moment.  Far from it.  But the Oakland Raider did have an impressive rookie season in 2014, leading all rookie quarterbacks in yards (3,270) and touchdowns (21), while throwing just 12 interceptions. Those are pretty good numbers for any first-year quarterback, let alone one that had […]

    Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis Go Dutch on Pizza Bill in Italy

    If you were to ever take a model like Hannah Davis out for dinner, chances are you’d be footing every bill that came your way throughout the evening, from the meal, to drinks afterward, to the cab ride home at the end of the night (hopefully to her place). That’s what a real man would do. […]

    Watch Sal Alosi Trip P. Diddy In Hilarious Vine (Video)

    Prior to yesterday’s kettlebell brawl with P. Diddy, UCLA Strength and Conditioning coach Sal Alosi was best known for an incident back in December 2010, when he tripped the Dolphins’ Nolan Carroll along the sidelines during a special teams play while working for the Jets. Alosi was fined $25,000 by the Jets and suspended for the remainder […]

    Nina Agdal and Bryce Harper Get Flirty in this New Era Ad (Video)

    If you’re going to be forced to fake chemistry with someone for an ad, it might as well be someone who’s really, really attractive. And if you’re Nina Agdal, it might as well be Bryce Harper. I mean, he’s pretty accomplished, right? I’ll be honest, the whole ad is pretty cut-rate, and the premise is […]

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia Has Chuck Norris on His Bat (Video)

    There are all sorts of superstitions that athletes adhere to, with baseball players often regarded as being among the most superstitious. And though I can’t say that’s the reason that Jarrod Saltalamacchia has a picture of Chuck Norris on the end of his bat, it seems to just make sense. I mean, if you want to hit […]

    Ultimate Frisbee Player Makes Jaw-Dropping Catch (Video)

    For all of those who thought that ultimate frisbee was one of those sports that was for stoners in Boulder…I’m not going to say you’re wrong. But I will say that there are very athletic exceptions to that stereotype. Like this guy, AJ Nelson, who not only got down the field in a hurry to […]

  • ‘Fox and Friends’ Host Hit a Person with a Flying Axe (Video)

    ‘Fox and Friends’ Host Hit a Person with a Flying Axe (Video)

    I love it when the headline has the reader begging for more info, as this one does. Yesterday, the regular Fox and Friends crew had the day off, so the JV squad stepped up. Leading that crew was Pete Hegseth. It seems appropriate now to mention that Hegseth was in the military. But it’s pretty […]

  • Turns Out Gronk Is Actually Really Smart with Money

    Turns Out Gronk Is Actually Really Smart with Money

    So Rob Gronkowski wrote a book. Or I guess I should say, Rob Gronkowski “wrote” a book, since his agent Jason Rosenhaus also gets an author credit. It’s a pseudo-memoir called It’s Good to Be Gronk, and it ships on July 14. Obviously, since this is Gronk we’re talking about here, the book is filled […]

    There’s a Matthew Dellavedova Movie (or TV Show) in the Works

    The 2015 NBA Finals produced a number of interesting storylines, like the monster Finals performance of LeBron James and the unlikely but much-deserved MVP win by Andre Iguodala. However, the only storyline that’s inspired a Hollywood movie (so far) is the rise of Matthew Dellavedova. That’s right. A Matthew Dellavedova movie is currently in the […]
