    Soccer Fans in Prague Get Pretty Worked Up Over the Prague Derby (Video)

    We’re pretty accustomed to seeing soccer fans brawl and riot before, during and after significant matches. And since few matches are as significant to fans as a derby match–i.e., a match between a heated intercity or regional rival—these matches often surpass all others in fan violence. We saw this last week in Newcastle, England, where […]

    25 Animated GIFs of Kevin Durant Being Awesome

    Here at TotalProSports we’ve done GIF tributes to LeBron James and Kobe Bryant already, so we figured the next guy up would have to be Kevin Durant. He may not be the biggest star in the game today, but he’s close. And if you asked all the GMs what player they would choose to build […]

    Shane Victorino Steals Some Peanuts from a Fan (Video)

    This past offseason, the Boston Red Sox signed outfielder Shane Victorino to a three-year, $39 million deal. That’s not Josh Hamilton or Zack Greinke money, but $13 million a year is still a pretty nice chunk of change. Divide that total by 365 and that works out to an income of $35,616 per day, which […]

    This Day In Sports History (April 18th) — Joe Montana

    It was on this day in 1995 that quarterback Joe Montana announced his retirement from the NFL.  It would officially mark the end of Montana’s 16-year Hall of Fame career. Montana spent the first 14 years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers, and the final two years with the Kansas City Chiefs.  Throughout […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/17/2013 — Pau Gasol

    The Lakers entered their season finale on Wednesday not knowing whether they would be taking part in the 2013 NBA playoffs, but a loss by the Utah Jazz assured them of at least the eighth spot in the Western Conference, and a victory over the Houston Rockets later that night was enough to bump them into seventh. Leading the […]

    Irina Shayk Refuses to Cut a Lionel Messi Jersey (Video)

    Since 2010, Russian model Irina Shayk has been dating soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, and because of that we’ll simply assume that she is now a big fan of CR8 and his Spanish club team, Real Madrid.  And that should probably make her a big hater of Lionel Messi and Barcelona—but not a big enough hater […]

    9 Sporting Events Impacted by Terrorism

    As tragic as the events were that unfolded at the Boston Marathon on Monday, this was not the first time a major sporting event has been negatively impacted by an act of terrorism. In fact, this wasn’t even the first time a marathon had been impacted by an act of terrorism. All across the globe, […]

    Bouncer Won’t Let Drunk Arsenal Player Andrey Arshavin in Da Club (Video)

    You might assume that a professional soccer player who plays on one of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League could get into pretty much any nightclub he wanted anywhere in the UK. However, this is not the case. Just ask Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin. Actually, on second thought, don’t waste your breath asking Arshavin. […]

    Clippers Fan Hits Half-Court Shot to Win a Car (Video)

    Blake Griffin may be able to jump over cars, but I bet he couldn’t hit a half-court shot to win a car, much like Kevin Liao did during a break in the action at last night’s game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers at the Staples Center. Liao was informed that […]
