    Former Rugby Star Jarryd Hayne Gets 53-Yard Run in 49ers Debut (Video)

    We’re in the first week of NFL preseason “action,” and while familiar faces aren’t making many appearances on the field, we’re getting a good glimpse at some new ones. Last night, the 49ers lined up Jarryd Hayne, a former rugby star from the Australian league, in the backfield, and they didn’t regret it. Hayne managed to […]

    Just Trent Richardson being Trent Richardson, running into the crowd of defensive players to his right for the one-yard gain instead of choosing to take the wide open path to the end zone on his left. Watch: This is THE most frustrating thing about Trent Richardson. He cuts it up field that’s 6 #RaiderNation pic.twitter.com/WdRNi2klCn — Blackhanside […]

  • Mike Aviles’ Daughter Throws Out First Pitch at Indians Game (Video)

    Mike Aviles’ Daughter Throws Out First Pitch at Indians Game (Video)

    Earlier this summer we told you how members of the Cleveland Indians were shaving their heads in solidarity with Mike Aviles‘ daughter, four-year-old Adriana, who is battling leukemia. However, the team’s support did not end there. Aviles, a versatile utility man, will be a free agent at the end of the season and thus would have made […]

  • World’s Largest (Known) Great White Shark Caught on Camera (Video)

    World’s Largest (Known) Great White Shark Caught on Camera (Video)

    Some old footage turned up from 2013 that shows what experts are saying is a 20 foot long, 50 year old pregnant female shark known as Deep Blue. Assuming those numbers are right (which some are contesting), it would be the largest great white shark caught on film. Another estimate is that she’s as wide […]

  • The J.J. Watt Diet Is Roughly 9,000 Calories per Day

    The J.J. Watt Diet Is Roughly 9,000 Calories per Day

    It doesn’t seem like J.J. Watt half-asses a lot of things, so when the star defensive end went to “fuel up” with his training coach since high school, he did it in true J.J. Watt-ian fashion—which, of course, means a diet consisting of 9,000 calories a day. ESPN doesn’t give us the fun meal-by-meal breakdown that […]

  • Brandon Weeden Slaps Away Fumble Hilariously in Preseason Game (Video)

    Brandon Weeden Slaps Away Fumble Hilariously in Preseason Game (Video)

    Brandon Weeden isn’t exactly competing for the Dallas Cowboys‘ starting job at QB. I think Tony Romo has that gig on lockdown. But still, Weeden probably could have made more of an effort to recover this botched snap from last night’s preseason (can we just call them scrimmages?) game against the Chargers, which kicked off their slate […]

    The Bills Duct Taped and Drenched Rookie Ronald Darby (Video)

    It’s been a whole season since the ugly Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident, so I guess we’ve healed enough to get back to some good-natured NFL hazing, eh? The Buffalo Bills thought so as they duct-taped rookie cornerback Ronald Darby to the goal posts and dumped some ice water on him. An age-old tradition for rookies […]

    Klay Thompson Nutmegs DeMar DeRozan in USA Game (Video)

    We might be in the dregs of the basketball offseason, with free agency over and a while before training camps, but Klay Thompson managed to still sneak in a moment of excitement in the White vs. Blue game for the USA national team. On something resembling a fastbreak, Klay Thompson saw that the shortest distance […]

    Rogers Cup Crowd Boos Nick Kyrgios On And Off The Court (Video)

    At the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday, Aussie tennis player Nick Kyrgios created a firestorm of controversy when he told Stan Wawrinka that another player “banged” his girlfriend. The problem, of course, was not merely that the comment was crude. It was that Wawrinka’s girlfriend is 19-year-old Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic, and Kyrgios […]

    Johnny Manziel Looks Good During 12-Yard TD Run (Video)

    Thursday night marked the start of a highly-anticipated sophomore season for Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. Has he improved his game?  Will we see a more mature Johnny Football in 2015? While we didn’t get any definitive answers during the Browns’ 20-17 loss to Washington, Manziel did give us reason to be optimistic with an impressive […]
