  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    Entering last night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Washington Nationals had lost six straight against their division rivals.  They were looking to break out of that losing streak and they did so in a big way, thanks to the hot bat of Danny Espinosa. The Nats’ second baseman terrorized Phillies starter Cliff Lee to […]

    Dad Crushes Kid To Catch A Foul Ball (Video)

    Is it really worth diving across a few seats, crushing your son and making him cry, just to catch a foul ball?  To this father it was, but at least he came away with a souvenir via the great grab, unlike the dad at the Dodgers game, who dropped both his daughter and the ball […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    We could have easily given this “Stat Line of the Night” to “Disco” Dirk Nowitzki for scoring 40 points and dancing all over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s NBA championship hopes last night, but we simply could not ignore the performance put forth by the Milwaukee Brewers’ Corey Hart yesterday afternoon. Hart had yet to hit […]

    Picture Of The Day: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    So let me get this straight.  Whoever created this chart, which analyzes balls in sports, is trying to tell me that basketball players and bowlers have bigger balls than football players? Bowlers?  Seriously?  And where does the soccer ball fit into this entire equation?  Even their ball is bigger than a football.  I’m not sure […]

  • There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There isn’t much to get excited about when the Florida Marlins and the Chicago Cubs meet up these days.  But don’t tell that to this fan, who got  a little too excited during last night’s game at Sun Life Stadium, to say the least. According to the commentators, he was performing backflips in the outfield […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Ouch!!!

    Picture Of The Day: Ouch!!!

    I am not quite sure how this baseball card of the Las Vegas Stars’ Keith Comstock didn’t make our list of the “9 Most Iconic Baseball Cards You Wish You Still Had.” I mean, that Billy Ripken card with the words “F**k Face” written on the bottom of his bat is cool and all, but […]

  • Picture Of The Day: A Souvenir For The Kid

    Picture Of The Day: A Souvenir For The Kid

    “Nice catch mom!” That is what the child of this Gold Glove caliber mother would probably say, if he could talk.  Unfortunately he can’t.  And he is probably much to young to ever remember this moment.  Thankfully, his mother will always have this image to remind her son of the day she caught him a […]

    Shirtless Fat-Man Does The Chicken Dance At Baseball Game (Video)

    For some, the game of baseball can be a little slow at times.  As a result, fans are always looking for a way to entertain themselves and those around them.  Running onto the field and eluding security is one way to accomplish that.  Serenading your favorite player with a Biz Markie classic is another. And […]

    Field Intruder Makes Great Escape At Astros Game (Video)

    Everyone loves watching a fan make their way onto the playing field and run around aimlessly before finally being tackled by stadium security, but when will we ever be treated to the sight of a field intruder that successfully gets away? Today! Yes, the wait is over thanks to this Astros fan, who made his […]

    Picture Of The Day: Is This Worse Than Kissing Your Sister?

    This has to be worse than kissing your own sister, right?  I mean, when it comes to rivalries in sports, Yanks vs. Sox is certainly among the most hated in North America.  It may even be among the most hated in the world, although, you have to believe with all the hooliganism and diehard soccer […]

  • This Excedrin Baseball Commercial Is So Cheesy, It’s Good! (Video)

    This Excedrin Baseball Commercial Is So Cheesy, It’s Good! (Video)

    Some commercials are so cheesy it actually hurts to watch them.  Then there are those that are so cheesy, they are actually entertaining and funny.  I’d say this commercial for Excedrin headache relief pills, which documents the life of a baseball umpire, falls under the category of the latter. Whether it is the face of […]
