    LeBron James Did a Twitter Q&A (That Didn’t Go Awry)

    As most Internet denizens are aware, the concept of a Twitter Q&A for public figures or companies almost always backfires. People tend to crucify their subjects, and it almost never results in the positive press they may have initially anticipated. One would think the same thing would have happened to polarizing NBA star LeBron James, […]

    Golfer Shanks His Drive and Destroys a GoPro (Video)

    While GoPros are supposedly built to be durable for most sports, they are no match for an extremely bad golfer. A duffer teed up in front of the camera (why would you want an ant’s-eye view of your shot?) and knocked his drive right into the turf-mounted device. Here’s the video. It’s quick, to the point, […]

    Tom Brady Releases Statement Regarding NFL’s Decision on Facebook

    It’s quite obvious that Tom Brady is not happy about the NFL’s decision to uphold his four-game suspension for his involvement in DeflateGate following his appeal.  The fact that he and the NFLPA intend to appeal that decision in a federal court should tell you that much, but in case you were still wondering exactly […]

    Tom Brady Suspension Upheld by Roger Goodell, Now Everybody’s Suing Everybody

    Roger Goodell finally made a decision regarding the Tom Brady suspension on Tuesday. After carefully weighing all the evidence and testimony pertaining to Brady’s role in the Deflategate scandal, Goodell rejected his appeal and upheld the original four-game suspension.

    Manute Bol’s Son Is a Hell of a Basketball Player at 15 (Video)

    The late Manute Bol was known during his NBA as the tallest player in the league, and an occasional leader in blocked shots. After his career wound down, awareness of his many philanthropic works spread, and his legacy became much more. Now, that legacy has a chance to grow even more after the player’s untimely […]

    OSU QB Cardale Jones Shows Off WWE Moves at a Pool (Video)

    In what might be a case of questionable judgment, Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones took to an apartment complex pool to show off some pretty sick wrestling moves. Everyone seems to be having fun, but that’s a wet surface, folks. NO HORSEPLAY IN OR AROUND THE POOL! DOOOOOOOO HEEEEMMMMMM!!! @CJ12_ pic.twitter.com/fOH7qbSX6X — Tyvis Powell (@1Tyvis) July […]

    John Oliver Went on Another, Shorter FIFA Rant Sunday (Video)

    John Oliver is no fan of FIFA. I don’t think anyone is, really, but he seems to be a pioneer in the field of hating FIFA, as this earlier rant shows. Oh, and there’s this rant, too. Please don’t ignore this one, either. He’s on a tear as of late, as he’s a soccer fan […]

    Nick Saban Would Only Cheat on His Wife with…Hillary Clinton (Pic)

    Just when you think you know something about your favorite coach, you read their biography and find out something new, and kind of weird. For instance, in Nick Saban‘s biography, likely sold exclusively in the state of Alabama, he manages to turn a story around to teach a lesson to his kids. Of course, this […]

    While pranks are really more of a baseball thing, when teams have 162 game seasons, meaning that no particular game really means that much until mid-August, it’s possible for football teams to have some summer fun as well. Take this prank at Ohio State, for instance. A staff member got all dressed up in the […]

    This Appliance Race at a Minor League Game Was a Debacle (Video)

    Minor league games aren’t known for their high production values. Tickets are roughly a nickel, and the little money the teams find generally has to fund the players. So there’s not a lot left when it comes to in-game entertainment. That will be obvious after you see this clip. At the home stadium of the […]

    Here’s the Trailer for HBO’s Will Ferrell Spring Training Documentary (Video)

    Remember when Will Ferrell played 10 different positions for 10 different teams and earned his very own Topps baseball card during MLB Spring Training? At the time it seemed like just another sports-related publicity stunt from the world’s funniest sports fanatic. (Well, maybe the world’s second-funniest sports fanatic.) But as it turns out, it was not just […]
