    9 Devoutly Religious Athletes

    “Here are some athletes that were known for being pretty religious.” Not the most compelling lead for an article, but what can be said? Athletes find themselves answering to a higher power (sometimes) because they live off the bounty of gifts. What does that mean to the fans? Well, normally it doesn’t mean a damn […]

    9 Restaurants Owned by Athletes

    Athletes owned restaurants rarely succeed. Like athletes and music, or athletes and acting, or basically athletes doing anything but athletics is a recipe for disaster.

    9 Athletic Scandals We Couldn’t Make Up If We Tried

    These might not all be the worst scandals in sports, or the funniest, but they’re pretty damn crazy. A few are within the realm of possibility, but would require a crack writing team to craft the stories any better than fate did. Some of them are funny, some are sad, all are weird as hell. […]

    I’ll be honest. We probably wouldn’t be running this list if it wasn’t St. Patrick’s Day. But it is, so we are. The history of Irish athletes is far from fabled. Despite the large population of Irish-Americans, only reside 4 million people on the Emerald Isle, so don’t get your hopes up for a smorgasbord […]
