    Stat Line of the Night – 12/10/2013 – Alex Ovechkin

    Remember three years ago when Alex Ovechkin lost his scoring touch and people were wondering if he’d ever be a prolific scorer again? Well, as it turns out, those “bad” seasons in which he averaged “only” 35 goals were merely aberrations. Last year he returned to form and cranked out 32 goals in 48 games. […]

    Drunk Jets Fan Launches F-Bomb Tirade And Pees Pants??? (Video)

    Some stories are just too good to be true. Take this one, just as an example – an incredibly drunk and angry Jets fan (and given the Jets’ performance this season, we can’t really blame him for being either of those things) went on an equally incredibly entertaining tirade that included liberal use of NSFW […]

    This Day In Sports History (December 10th) — C.C. Sabathia

    It was on this day in 2008 that the New York Yankees signed free agent starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia to a seven-year, $161 million contract.  This remains the largest contract ever signed by a pitcher in Major League Baseball history.

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/9/2013 – Josh McCown

    The Chicago Bears weren’t expected to be big contenders this year. But as it turns out, their whole division sucks. Adrian Peterson is having a “down” year (meaning he is only second in the league in rushing), Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, and Detroit is…well, Detroit. So people started wondering if the Bears had a […]

    9 Greatest Snow Games in the History of the NFL

    Yesterday, the Philadelphia Eagles played the Detroit Lions at Lincoln Financial Field under conditions that, at times, could only be described as blizzard-like. Only light snow showers had been forecasted, but mother nature ended up dumping a half foot of the white stuff on the Philadelphia area. And while it played havoc with the coaches’ […]
