    This Might Be the Worst Competition Dive Ever (Video)

    I feel sort of bad about calling out this diver for their terrible dive. I mean, I know they did it publicly and everything, but no one, not even athletes, are immune from having their brain lock up in a big moment. And when you’re diving, it’s just you out there. It’s likely this isn’t […]

    Newspapers Went Crazy with Deflategate Headlines (Pics)

    After it was ruled that Tom Brady‘s four-game suspension would stand, media outlets braced themselves for the culmination of the Deflategate blitz that was headed their way. They did this in a fairly obnoxious, but familiar fashion: By writing lots of really bad puns for their Deflategate headlines. The NY Post is the most frequent […]

    LeBron James Did a Twitter Q&A (That Didn’t Go Awry)

    As most Internet denizens are aware, the concept of a Twitter Q&A for public figures or companies almost always backfires. People tend to crucify their subjects, and it almost never results in the positive press they may have initially anticipated. One would think the same thing would have happened to polarizing NBA star LeBron James, […]

    Golfer Shanks His Drive and Destroys a GoPro (Video)

    While GoPros are supposedly built to be durable for most sports, they are no match for an extremely bad golfer. A duffer teed up in front of the camera (why would you want an ant’s-eye view of your shot?) and knocked his drive right into the turf-mounted device. Here’s the video. It’s quick, to the point, […]

    Tom Brady Releases Statement Regarding NFL’s Decision on Facebook

    It’s quite obvious that Tom Brady is not happy about the NFL’s decision to uphold his four-game suspension for his involvement in DeflateGate following his appeal.  The fact that he and the NFLPA intend to appeal that decision in a federal court should tell you that much, but in case you were still wondering exactly […]

    Tom Brady Suspension Upheld by Roger Goodell, Now Everybody’s Suing Everybody

    Roger Goodell finally made a decision regarding the Tom Brady suspension on Tuesday. After carefully weighing all the evidence and testimony pertaining to Brady’s role in the Deflategate scandal, Goodell rejected his appeal and upheld the original four-game suspension. That means Brady will miss as many games for letting air out of some footballs as Cowboys […]

    The late Manute Bol was known during his NBA as the tallest player in the league, and an occasional leader in blocked shots. After his career wound down, awareness of his many philanthropic works spread, and his legacy became much more. Now, that legacy has a chance to grow even more after the player’s untimely […]

    In what might be a case of questionable judgment, Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones took to an apartment complex pool to show off some pretty sick wrestling moves. Everyone seems to be having fun, but that’s a wet surface, folks. NO HORSEPLAY IN OR AROUND THE POOL! DOOOOOOOO HEEEEMMMMMM!!! @CJ12_ pic.twitter.com/fOH7qbSX6X — Tyvis Powell (@1Tyvis) July […]

    John Oliver Went on Another, Shorter FIFA Rant Sunday (Video)

    John Oliver is no fan of FIFA. I don’t think anyone is, really, but he seems to be a pioneer in the field of hating FIFA, as this earlier rant shows. Oh, and there’s this rant, too. Please don’t ignore this one, either. He’s on a tear as of late, as he’s a soccer fan […]

    Nick Saban Would Only Cheat on His Wife with…Hillary Clinton (Pic)

    Just when you think you know something about your favorite coach, you read their biography and find out something new, and kind of weird. For instance, in Nick Saban‘s biography, likely sold exclusively in the state of Alabama, he manages to turn a story around to teach a lesson to his kids. Of course, this […]
