    With the Winter Game in Sochi, Russia, less than seven months away, and the country’s anti-gay laws drawing plenty of ire from around the world, many athletes have used sports as a platform to voice their displeasure with Russia’s lack of concern for the safety and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals […]

    The 2013-14 Premier League season kicked off over the weekend, and it couldn’t have gone any worse for Arsenal. Not only did they lose their match at home to Aston Villa by a score of 3-1, but Gunners defender Laurent Koscielny was issued a red card, while fellow Frenchman Bacary Sagna was the victim of […]

    Viral Vine: Watch a Gymnast Go Flying Off a Springboard

    When Twitter first released Vine, their video-sharing platform, I was a little confused. Instagram? That kind of made sense. YouTube? That makes all kinds of sense. But what was the point, I wondered, of a video sharing site that only lets you make six-second, looping videos? Then it dawned on me: Vine videos are like […]

    12 Creepiest College Football Mascots

    The 2013 college football season kicks off in just under two weeks. But before everyone gets preoccupied with the important storylines—like what Johnny Football ate for breakfast, or who will earn the right to lose to an SEC team in the BCS National Championship Game—we really should take a moment to pay tribute to one of the […]

    This Unexpected Karate Knockout Is Ridiculously Awesome (Video)

    The following karate knockout video is the best kind of karate knockout video. It starts out really boring. You begin watching the thing and almost immediately remember that profound sense of disappointment you experienced as a child when you realized taking actual karate was nothing like The Karate Kid movies. There was no Cobra Kai […]

    Reggie Wayne Provides THE Highlight of the NFL Preseason (GIF)

    Well I guess not all off the balls thrown on Sunday night in Indianapolis wound up hitting Pam Oliver in the face. At least one of them was caught in spectacular fashion by the Colts’ superstar wide receiver Reggie Wayne. With just under three minute remaining in the first quarter, Indy QB Andrew Luck threw […]

    If you’re a sideline reporter, it’s a pretty safe bet that, sooner or later, you’re going to have something bad happen to you. You never know when, and you never know what. You could get hit by a puck, hit by a ball, run over by a football player, drenched by a bucket of Gatorade, […]

    This Day In Sports History (August 19th) — Guy LaFleur

    It was on this day in 1988 that the New York Rangers signed ex Montreal Canadiens superstar Guy LaFleur.  LaFleur came out of his four year retirement to join the Rangers on a one-year contract. From the 1974-75 season to the 1979-80 season, LaFleur was the NHL’s most productive player, amassing 50 goals and 100 […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/18/2013 — Chris Davis

    Few would argue against the fact that Miguel Cabrera owns the most feared bat in the Major Leagues these days.  As for the second most feared bat, that would have to belong to Chris Davis. The man they call “Crush Davis” was doing some more crushing on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, as he went […]

    Prancercise Is the Greatest Fitness Movement Ever! (Video)

    To all you who’ve been going to the gym to run on treadmills, or going to your local CrossFit establishment to lift tires, or even going to yoga studios to point your dog downward, I’ve got some really bad news: you’ve been going at it all wrong. You don’t need to pay money to get […]

    Streaker at Browns-Lions Game Get’s Drilled By Security Guard (Videos)

    Pitch invaders have become commonplace in sports these days, but one thing we rarely see is a full-on streaker, complete with full-frontal nudity and all. During last night’s preseason match-up between the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions at FirstEnergy Stadium (formerly known as Cleveland Browns Stadium), we were treated to just that, as one […]

    The 40 Jerseys of the 2013/14 English Premier League Season

    Here in North America, when it comes to sports jerseys, we like continuity. We may tear down our stadiums every 20 years, but the idea of the Yankees or Packers or Celtics or Red Wings changing uniforms every single season just sounds ridiculous. This is not the case in England. There, it’s pretty much expected […]

    How Many People Are In Space Right Now?

    Have you ever gazed off into space and wondered exactly what is out there?  I’m sure you have .  We all have! Unfortunately, no one knows what the exact answer to that question is, what with all of the unknowns that remain within not only our own universe, but those beyond it as well; however, […]
