    WWE Stanley Cup Twitter Beef Between CM Punk and Hulk Hogan? Yes Please (Pic)

    CM Punk, the longest-reigning WWE Champion of the “modern era,” was born and raised in Chicago. Hulk Hogan, the longest-reigning WWE Champion of the ’80s and third-longest reigning champion all-time, grew up and still lives in Tampa. What does that mean? Given the Blackhawks and Lightning are battling it out in the 2015 Stanley Cup […]

    Barehanded Line Drive Caught on Weirdo Fan’s GoPro (Video)

    If you were at the Biloxi Shuckers game on June 7th (AND WHY WEREN’T YOU?), you may have seen some strange soul with a GoPro strapped to his head, sitting around, doing nothing in particular. Turns out the oddball with the camera attached to his head had the last laugh, as he ended up getting […]

    Jimmy Kimmel Asks ‘Can Michael Jordan Palm It?’ (Video)

    In a bit that harkens back to his hero David Letterman’s “Will It Float,” Jimmy Kimmel, in the spirit of the NBA Finals, went remote to Michael Jordan on a golf course to find out exactly what MJ can palm. The name of the skit, of course, is “Can Michael Jordan Palm It?” And there’s […]

    $315K in American Pharoah Winnings Still Unclaimed

    I guess the fairweather fans at the Belmont Stakes were so swept up in the moment of triumph for the Triple Crown winner that they forgot to collect on their bets. Either that, or the American Pharoah backers valued their $2 betting tickets as souvenirs more than they did the $3.50 that their tickets were […]

    Dansby Swanson Celebrates Being MLB’s #1 Pick with Vandy Teammates (Video)

    A lot isn’t made of the MLB draft. That’s probably because virtually no college players are prepared to go straight into the Major Leagues, so getting picked is pretty much just a graduation to minor league ball with a big signing bonus. But that didn’t keep Vanderbilt shortstop Dansby Swanson from celebrating pretty hard with his […]

    Billy Hamilton Steals Second, Third, then Home…Because He Can (Video)

    Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton came to the Major Leagues with some pretty high expectations. The kid stole 155 bases in the minors in 2012, breaking Vince Coleman‘s Minor League record by 10 and eclipsing Rickey Henderson‘s Major League record by 25. Unfortunately, his rookie season in 2014 was a little bit of a […]

    Watch Footage of American Pharoah vs. Secretariat (Video)

    American Pharoah was impressive during his Triple Crown-clinching run at Belmont on Saturday, as he posted the sixth-fastest time in the history of the race. But as good as the Bob Baffert-trained horse was, he would have been no match for Secretariat and his record-breaking time of 2:24.00 from 1973. Interested in seeing what an American […]

    Most people were already writing off the Tampa Bay Lightning’s chances of winning the Stanley Cup after they lost Game 1 of the finals to the Chicago Blackhawks in dramatic fashion.  But they’re all singing a different tune now, as Cedric Paquette‘s goal late in the third period of Game 3 gave the Bolts a 3-2 victory […]

    Robby Gordon Runs Over Spectator at Baja 500 (Video)

    Apparently safety was not a concern during last weekend’s SCORE Baja 500, as the race featured two separate accidents involving spectators. One of those incidents saw a truck lose control and hit eight spectators.  Thankfully, none of them were seriously injured. As for the other incident, it involved former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, who hit an […]
