    Mariano Rivera Tears ACL While Shagging Fly Balls (Video)

    Being a Toronto Blue Jays fan, there are plenty of players on the New York Yankees that I would love to see pull up lame with a serious knee injury while shagging fly balls in the outfield during batting practice.  Mariano Rivera is not one of them. Rivera suffered a torn ACL during Yankees batting […]

    Picture Of The Day: NY Post 1, A-Rod 0

    Yesterday we informed you that a New York Yankees fan may have been responsible for killing former Libyan tyrant Moammar Gadhafi.  The New York Post was sharing similar information on their front cover this morning, and in doing so, they decided to take the opportunity to throw in a cheap-shot at the Big Apple’s favorite […]

  • 15 Highest Pro Athlete Salaries of 2011

    15 Highest Pro Athlete Salaries of 2011

    The annual salaries commanded by pro athletes seem to be growing exponentially, don’t they? It just seems like every year, in every sport, somebody is breaking a record for most money paid to a grown man for playing a game. Some of us don’t really have a problem with this, and instead fantasize about what […]

    11 Athletes We’d Like to Punch in the Face

    This list could be a thousand entries long. Of course, everyone has their own athletes they want to punch. I’m sure someone out there hates Dirk Nowitzki with a passion and wants nothing more to see him hurt, but that’s not what this list is about. Some athletes, seemingly universally, just rub everyone the wrong […]

    9 Athletes Who Need Their Own Reality Show

    Athletes are not, by and large, interesting people. It’s not their fault – most people aren’t interesting. However, some athletes warrant a closer look for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they’re awful (see directly below), crazy, wildly entertaining, or just too good to be true. I wouldn’t wish a reality television show upon my worst […]

    Cameron Diaz Was Feeding Popcorn To A-Rod At The Super Bowl (Video)

    Get your popcorn ready! If you put your money on Alex Rodriguez being the first one to score at last night’s Super Bowl, congratulations!  You probably won yourself a boatload of cash. And by score, of course, we mean being hand-fed popcorn by Cameron Diaz on national television.  I am fairly certain the two are […]

    Wait…What? The 20 Funniest Sports Headlines

    The sports world is rife with double entendre and pun opportunities, so it should come as no surprise that, intentionally or accidentally, print media can perhaps string some words together in a headline that might come across as a little…odd or unfortunate. Factor in headlines about a sex scandal and you’ve go the trappings of […]

    9 Common Sportscaster Clichés

    This list could easily be one hundred entries long. It’s not that announcers are lazy, uneducated guys; by and large, they’re not. However, when you have to speak for three hours, there’s only so much original thought you can shoehorn in before you have to go back to the deep well of clichés. Some clichés […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/22/10 – Alex Rodriguez

    Yankees fans were treated to some fireworks last night as the lowly Royals came to town. Journeyman Bruce Chen took the bump for the hapless Royals, and the Bronx Bombers wiped off their drool long enough to batter him around. Chief among them was the surging Alex Rodriguez. ARod went off on Chen and the […]

  • Yankees Turn First Triple Play Since 1968

    Yankees Turn First Triple Play Since 1968

    The Yankees have done a lot of things since 1968, which includes seven World Series titles, 11 American League pennants, and 16 East Division titles, but they have failed to turn a triple play over the past 42 years.  Yesterday afternoon they put an end to that drought, completing one of baseball’s most difficult plays […]
