    The Basketball Jones Presents a Very NBA Christmas (Video)

    The “Basketball Jones” video podcast, blog, and TV show has been cracking people up since it was founded as a regular old podcast by Tas Melas, J.E. Skeets, and Trey Kerby back in 2006.

    This Video of Fake NBA Trash Talking is Hilarious (Video)

    Lots of sports broadcasts are putting microphones on athletes and coaches these days to get an “insider’s perspective” on what’s happening in the game. However, if the game doesn’t happen to be completely meaningless (like an All-Star Game), they tend to edit and censor what the players say pretty frequently. So fans don’t really get […]

    Eagle Tries to Snatch Kid from Montreal Park (Video)

    So, everybody’s talking this morning about this insane video that was supposedly shot at a park in Montreal. What’s so special about it? Oh, not much.

    Brazil’s Falcao Scores Ridiculous Futsal Goal (Video)

    Futsal is a version of soccer played on a smaller field with fewer players, usually indoors. Though it’s not really that popular in North America, it is popular recreationally throughout the rest of the soccer-loving world. And of course, in soccer-mad Brazil they even have a pretty popular professional futsal league. The greatest superstar of […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/18/2012 — LeBron James

    Few NBA players are capable of filling a stat sheet like LeBron James is, and the 2012 NBA MVP was at it again last night during the Miami Heat’s home contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Looking to close the gap on the Knicks in their battle for top spot in the Eastern Conference, King James […]

    Watch Wade Boggs Dance at the Thunder-Spurs Game (Video)

    A smooth swing in the batter’s box doesn’t always translate into some smooth moves on the dance floor. Want proof?  Look no further than former Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs, whose smooth swing earned him five batting titles and a career average of .328 during his 18 seasons in the majors.  Unfortunately for him, […]

    Sidney Crosby Plays Goalie for Local Ball Hockey Team

    When Sidney Crosby played his last NHL game, he did so as arguably the league’s best player. When he plays his next NHL game, he may do so as the league’s best up-and-coming goalie. Okay, so that probably won’t end up happening, but who knows?  If this lockout lasts long enough, Crosby may get enough […]

    Is This the Worst Free Kick Ever? (Video)

    In recent months we have seen some pretty terrible penalty kicks. There was the terrible one by Jonathan Soriano of Red Bull Salzberg in Austria.

    Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere Receives an Epic Nutshot (GIF + Video)

    An epic sports nutshot is a paradox: it makes you cringe and squirm in your seat, and yet at the same time you simply cannot look away. Whether it’s a guy sliding crotch-first into a goal post, a 100 mph tennis ball popping a guy in the family jewels, or a football slipping through a […]

    15 Pro Athletes Who Joined the Enemy

    It’s one thing when one of your favorite athletes leaves your team. It’s another thing altogether when he leaves and goes to your most hated enemy. However, that’s what happened last week when former Red Sox Nation favorite Kevin Youkilis agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract with the—gasp!—New York Yankees. Sure, the Red Sox […]
