    ESPN personality Britt McHenry has been given some time to think about what she’s done as the Worldwide Leader suspended her one week after an angry rant was captured on tape.

    While we head into the playoffs, fresh off of stories like this, it’s pretty easy to get lost in the glitz and flash of the NBA. That’s not to say that the best NBA footwork isn’t glitzy or flashy—it often is. But it also tends to play second-fiddle to the high-flying dunks and thunderous alley-oops. However, we are […]

    MMA Fighter Has To Convince Ref Opponent Is Out Cold (Video)

    Here’s something you don’t see every day. MMA fighter Chad George was squaring up against Mark Vorgeas at Bellator 136, when he noticed that his opponent, after a long and certainly excruciating headlock, was unconscious. I’m not an MMA expert, but I’m pretty sure that is one of the ref’s main responsibilities: Make sure the MMA […]

    Pacquiao-Mayweather Will Charge for Weigh-In Tickets

    Because there’s always a buck to be made, the camps from the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight will be charging for tickets to the weigh-in before the fight.

    College Outfielder Makes an Amazing Catch over a Wall (Video)

    Baseball’s got its share of exciting moments, but nothing quite compares to a player making an insane catch.

However, University of Evansville gave us an amazing catch last night, […]

    Things Got Weird During a UNC-High Point Rain Delay (Video)

    I’m all for having fun during baseball games. The monotony of the season can lead to a bit of cabin fever, making players act out in really juvenile ways with pranks, slip-n-slides, and all that. However, things got downright bizarre during a rain delay between UNC and High Point this week. I’d seen a bunch […]

    Here’s Every Time Jordan Spieth Talked to His Ball at Augusta (Video)

    Jordan Spieth isn’t your typical Masters champion, but he does have a few of the tendencies that it seems most great golfers have. For instance, he talks to his ball mid-flight. A lot.
