    Historic Weekend: For First Time Ever, Three NBA Game 7s In One Day

    If you love the drama of a Game 7, man, this is your week. On Wednesday there were three Game 7s in the Stanley Cup Playoffs: Rangers-Flyers, Wild-Avalanche, and Kings-Sharks. That was awesome, but it wasn’t quite uncharted territory for the NHL. There were also three Game 7s on the same day in 2003, 1997, […]

    Check Out the Golden State Warriors Fat Guy Acrobat (Video)

    Apparently Golden State Warriors fans were sick and tired of watching incredibly fit physical specimens perform acrobatic tricks and stunts during breaks in the action at Oracle Arena in Oakland. So the team went out and got a fat guy acrobat instead. Where do you find a fat guy acrobat? I don’t know. McDonalds? This […]

    Carlos Gomez Robs Joey Votto of Home Run…Again (Videos)

    Last July, Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez gave us one of the most exciting endings to a baseball game we saw all season. With the Brewers up 4-3 and trying to close out the Reds in the top of the 9th, Joey Votto came to the plate with a runner on first and two […]

    Donald Sterling Has Prostate Cancer

    Reviled Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been battling prostate cancer for at least two years. Apparently it was so bad at one point that some people who knew about it back then thought his death was immanent. I thought about giving this post a really snarky headline like, “NBA Cancer Donald Sterling Has Cancer.” But […]

    George Costanza may have had his fair share of troubles during his time with the New York Yankees, but he never had to deal with anything other than accidental racism. So it’s fun to imagine how he’d mesh with recently disgraced Clippers owner Don Sterling, in some kind of parallel universe where George moves to […]

  • This Day In Sports History (May 2nd) — Lou Gehrig

    This Day In Sports History (May 2nd) — Lou Gehrig

    It was on this day in 1939 that Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games streak ended.  The streak was halted at 2,130 after Gehrig sat out a game against the Detroit Tigers, which the Yankees would go on to win by a score of 22-2. Gehrig’s consecutive games streak would be one of his greatest achievements and […]

    Alabama Grocery Store Advertises “Jameis Winston King Crab Legs”

    When Jameis Winston got busted for trying to steal crab legs from a Publix grocery store, I imagine that everyone in the crab industry immediately started seeing dollar signs and hearing cash register sounds. But the first retailer to cash in on crab leg mania is Jack’s Foodland in Alabama. The manager of Jack’s Foodland is reportedly […]

    ‘Oklahoman’ Newspaper Apologizes for Kevin Durant “Mr. Unreliable” Headline

    Kevin Durant disappointed many with his 40 percent shooting in the first five games of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies—including, apparently, hometown paper The Oklahoman, which dubbed Durant “Mr. Unreliable” in a big, bold headline earlier today. The headline drew a storm of controversy, enough so that the paper released a […]
