    Bubba Watson Trash Talks a Spectator at the Travelers Championship (Video)

    Here’s a piece of advice for all you golf spectators out there: If you’re in attendance at a PGA tournament and you find yourself following Bubba Watson‘s group around, you may want to refrain from offering the 36-year-old professional any advice on which club to use.

    Going from being a broke college athlete to being a millionaire professional basketball player will change a lot of people, but not Sam Dekker.  The former Wisconsin forward was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 18th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, but that doesn’t mean he was excused from lawn-mowing duties this weekend: From NBA […]

    Jahlil Okafor was chosen by the Philadelphia 76ers with the third-overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, after being passed on by the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Lakers.

    What’s the Stanley Cup’s stance on LGBT rights? I think its appearance at the 46th Annual Chicago Pride Parade will answer that question for us: A big hit in the #Pride2015 parade today. #StanleyCup #BecauseItsTheCup @NHLBlackhawks @HockeyHallFame (Hhofarchives) pic.twitter.com/2OZzxEoQWC — Philip Pritchard (@keeperofthecup) June 28, 2015

    Odell Beckham Throws Heat at a Charity Softball Event (Video)

    Odell Beckham showed the world that he’s got an array of talents that transcend just football. He can throw some wicked heat from the pitching mound as well. Beckham made an appearance at a children’s hospital fundraising softball event, and wouldn’t you know it? The guy can pitch. Not just fast. Accurate. According to his temporary teammate […]

    This Rugby Tackle Will Knock the Wind Out of Ya (Video)

    If you needed one more exhibit to go with the thousands of others to support the assertion that rugby players are the toughest bastards in the world…here you are. This rugby tackle on Dave Tyrrell by Steve Matal is absolutely insane. I don’t think you could square up the circumstances any better to lay a […]

    As if it wasn’t enough that defensive monster J.J. Watt was raising a ruckus on opposing offenses, he now threatens to dominate another sport as he took to the ice at the University of Wisconsin. Granted, there were no defenders, but the Houston Texans’ lineman still managed to impress as he used some pretty fluid […]

    When we think of Bob Costas, we think of an idealistic Cardinals fan or the guy that hosted the nightly Olympics show with his eye hanging out of his face. However, we were treated to a new, vindictive side to the multi-sport announcer as he called the Cubs-Cardinals game on Friday. During the contest, Cubs pitcher […]

    C.C. Sabathia Doesn’t Like When You Throw at His Teammates (Video)

    While A-Rod may get a bum rap among both press and fans, he should take comfort in knowing that at least someone has his back. And that someone is giant Yanks pitcher C.C. Sabathia. On Saturday, A-Rod was catching a little heat from Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer, and C.C. Sabathia was the first guy out […]

    The 9 Worst Number One NBA Draft Picks of All Time

    Yesterday we discussed in our daily list the greatest steals in NBA draft history. Those are stories of success through some combination of great planning and luck. But there’s a flip side to those stories, and they involve teams squandering their position in the catbird seat due to some combination of bad planning or luck. Sometimes it’s […]

    Michael Rapaport Didn’t Like the Knicks’ Draft Choice, Either (Video)

    Word came from the draft last night that Knicks fans booed their team’s #4 selection, Kristaps Porzingis. That’s understandable. Foreign big men have always been a risky proposition in the early rounds, and it’s not like Knicks fans have a lot of faith in their front office these days. Add actor Michael Rapaport to the roster […]
