    Check Out NFL Player David Carter’s Vegan Diet

    You might not know David Carter from his accomplishments as a defensive lineman on the field, but you might know him now as one of the few (if not the only) 300-lb vegan player in the NFL. Originally with the Raiders, Carter was struggling with tendonitis throughout his body. After watching a documentary on veganism, […]

    Bills Claim IK Enemkpali Off Waivers, Because Rex Ryan

    No reasonable person would suggest IK Enemkpali should be expelled permanently from the NFL. If the league can forgive drunk drivers and wife beaters, surely it can also forgive the guy who punched Geno Smith and broke his jaw. However, you might have thought Enemkpali would have to sweat it out a bit. You might […]

    For the First Time Ever, MLB Home Teams Went 15-0 on Tuesday Night

    If you like mind-blowing stats, this post is for you. Because last night, when the Seattle Mariners finished off the Baltimore Orioles in 10 innings at Safeco Field, their victory marked the first time in the history of Major League Baseball that all 15 home teams won.

    Scorching Texas Heat Melts HS Player’s Shoe During Practice (Pic)

    High school football is a well-documented obsession in Texas. Teams prepare for the season year-round, which can be problematic in mid-August when temperatures can reach up to 110 degrees in the afternoon during two-a-days. Not only does the Texas heat have a tendency to, you know, kill players, but it can also raise some hell […]

    Drone Shows How Close Sharks Are to These Surfers (Video)

    A drone flying over the coast in Pismo Beach, CA, showed a few surfers riding waves and enjoying the ocean. It also showed how oblivious they were that sharks were milling about around them the whole time. Maybe they weren’t in danger, and maybe the sharks were friendly sharks. Or maybe they were angry sharks […]

    University of Buffalo Long Snapper’s Got Some Accuracy (Video)

    You probably don’t know the name Corbin Grassman. He’s a long snapper at the University at Buffalo, so he’s likely a fairly anonymous guy in the world of sports. But he’s probably a little more famous today than he was yesterday since he put up this quick Twitter video of him long-snapping a bottle right […]

    Drew Brees Shows Off Laser Beam Accuracy at Practice (Video)

    Drew Brees doesn’t really seem like the type of guy who would show off for the cameras. I mean, maybe he is, but we just don’t know that much about him. After yesterday, one thing we do know about the Saints QB is that he’s got a rifle for an arm. While screwing around (I […]

    Fat QB Jared Lorenzen Tells The Jets He’s Available

    Now that Geno Smith is out of action for anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks, the New York Jets have some decisions to make at the quarterback position. Perhaps their most likely option is to just go with veteran play-caller Ryan Fitzpatrick, who wasn’t all that bad with the Houston Texans last season, accumulating 17 […]
