    A Soccer Goalie Trick Shot Video? Why Not? (Video)

    If a third-string college quarterback and an NHL superstar can have their own trick-shot videos, why can’t a soccer goalkeeper, right? That was what Lassi Hurskainen was probably thinking when he decided to grab a camera, a soccer ball and a pair of cleats, and put together a rather impressive trick-shot video of his own.  […]

    Picture Of The Day: Volleyball Rules!

    Most people will say that beach volleyball is among the sexiest sports in the world.  I, on the other hand, remain quite the fan of female indoor volleyball.  After all, who needs skimpy swimwear when you’ve got shorts like these? Ever since I watched the USA take on Brazil in the gold medal match at […]

    Big Baby Comes Up A Little Short (Video)

    As big as Glen “Big Baby” Davis may be, he is not quite big enough to make any dunk attempt a guaranteed success.  That was evident on Sunday afternoon when the Celtics’ forward/center found himself all alone on a break following a turnover against the Miami Heat, only to have his dunk attempt rejected by […]

    9 Athletes Who Need Their Own Reality Show

    Athletes are not, by and large, interesting people. It’s not their fault – most people aren’t interesting. However, some athletes warrant a closer look for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they’re awful (see directly below), crazy, wildly entertaining, or just too good to be true. I wouldn’t wish a reality television show upon my worst […]

    Wayne Rooney’s Spectacular Goal vs. Samuel Eto’o ‘s Incredible Miss (Videos)

    This past weekend in European club soccer action brought us some incredible highlights and some rather embarrassing lowlights. Most notable among the highlights was the unbelievable overhead strike from Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, which many are now referring to as the “wonder goal.”  Not only was it a wonderful display of execution from the Man […]

    Tiger Woods Spits On Green, Upsets The Golf World (Video)

    Tiger Woods was once regarded as a model citizen, but that image has since given way to one that portrays him as a cheating husband with a rabid potty-mouth…and now a disrespectful spitter as well? That is what some were left thinking after Woods unleashed a mouth full of saliva onto the 12th green during […]

    Things Get Punchy Between No. 4 Pitt And No. 9 Villanova (Video)

    It was one of those elite performances that should at least get the Pittsburgh Panthers some consideration for top spot among voters, if it doesn’t end up putting them there when the latest NCAA men’s basketball rankings are released.  They did something that hadn’t been  accomplished in over four years, despite taking one on the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/13/11 — Rajon Rondo

    The Heat and the Celtics hooked up in Boston on Sunday in what may very well be a preview of this year’s Eastern Conference finals.  The Celtics would likely invite such a scenario as they have dominated LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the South Beach boys this season, beating them […]

    Here is a lesson for you all.  Motor vehicles are not toys.  They are not meant to be used for stunts and tricks, unless done so within the proper setting.  The public streets of a busy downtown core is certainly not among those “proper settings” we speak of.  Thankfully, the only one who appears to […]

    Picture Of The Day: Wrong Board Dude

    Wrong climate my skater friend… Someone should probably tell this guy that tis the season to put that skateboard away and get yourself a snowboard.  Either that, or you can simply move to sunny California, where skateboarding season runs 365 days a year.  Sure, he may want to believe that skateboarding season never ends in […]

    Look At Me! I’m J.R. Smith! (GIF)

    Despite his ability to score points, drain three-pointers and contribute in many other ways on the basketball court, the Denver Nuggets’ J.R. Smith continues to be left off his team’s starting rotation.  That has resulted in a lack of playing time for the sixth year guard (24 minutes per game), leaving him looking for some […]

    Picture Of The Day: Legs Aren’t Supposed To Bend Like That

    Ouch! This is pretty much what it looked like the moment Keith Ballard’s healthy right knee turned into a sprained right knee that is expected to keep him out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup for three to four weeks.  During Monday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Ballard became the latest in a long line […]

    One-And-A-Half Backflips Results In A Cheerleading FAIL! (Video)

    What better way to cap off a long post-Super Bowl week than by providing you with footage of this high school cheerleader who apparently didn’t get the playbook that said “two complete backflips,” rather than “one-and-a-half.”  That slight miscue would prove to be both painful and embarrassing, as it is never a good feeling when […]
