    The 13 Best Game 7s in the History of the Stanley Cup Playoffs

    This week we were treated to two Game 7s in the Stanely Cup Playoffs. One of them was between the Rangers and Capitals; the other was between the Bruins and Leafs. And while the former was a boring blowout—sorry, Capitals fans—the latter, on first glance, was an all-time classic. Or at least it that’s how […]

    Tennis tirades are fairly common. Unlike team sports, where responsibility for wins and losses is shared, in tennis all the pressure falls on one person. And, quite understandably, sometimes they buckle. That being said, some players have become legends for taking tirades to another level. John McEnroe is obviously the best example, and Serena Williams […]

    Dunk Fail: Florida Student’s Jam Goes Horribly Wrong (Video)

    Most NBA players make dunking a basketball look so easy, but believe me when I tell you that it’s not.  In addition to being tall enough with a high enough vertical to actually reach the basket in the first place, you also have to be able to grip the ball with one hand and your timing has […]

    It was on this day in 1985 that Michael Jordan was named the NBA rookie of the year.  He would beat out the likes of Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, Sam Perkins and Sam Bowie to win the prestigious award.

    Last night the Memphis Grizzlies put an end to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s season with an 88-84 win in Game 5 of their Western Conference Semifinal series.

    The Memphis Grizzlies had the opportunity to close out their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five last night.  Doing so would earn them a spot in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history, and that is exactly what they did. Leading the way for the Grizzlies was […]

    Dude Catches a Bird With His Hand (Video)

    Real or fake? That is the first question that comes to mind while watching this video of some dude catching a bird with his bare hands.  Either way, I’m impressed. If it’s real, my reason for being impressed is quite obvious, as catching (not swatting, Manu) a bird with one’s bare hand is something I […]

    Did you know there actually are arm wrestling competitions? Because I didn’t. I thought they only existed in the make-believe world of the classic Sylvester Stallone film, Over the Top. But I was wrong. There is such a thing as competitive arm wrestling. In fact, the 2013 European Arm Wrestling Championships were held from May 8-11 in […]

    If you’ve watched Bloodsport, the Rocky series, or any other boxing, kickboxing or martial arts movie, you are probably well aware of what a fake punch looks like.  You know, the one that knocks an opponent off their feet, before sending their lifeless body to the canvas?  Well, apparently, sometimes that sort of knockout punch […]
