    Happy 25th Anniversary: The 25 Best NES Sports Games

    Yesterday, Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) turned 25, which makes everyone over 30 feel really, really old. Here at TPS, rather than rue the march of time, we have decided to embrace it with this list of the 25 best NES sports games. While modern games have rendered many of these titles unplayable due to their […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The nickname “Mr. October” may currently belong to Reggie Jackson, however, should Cliff Lee continues his run of playoff dominance, that may have to change. Rangers’ manager Ron Washington ordered his starting rotation so that Lee would pitch Game 3 and give his team the opportunity to steal a game in New York, and that […]

    Phillies Fans Celebrate Game 2 Victory With Some Fisticuffs (Video)

    The Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Oswalt seemed to be his usual self last night as he delivered eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball, on route to a 6-1 Game 2 NLCS victory over the Giants.  As for the Philly faithful, they appeared to be their usual selves as well, throwing fists at one another whether their […]

    How About Showing Some Effort Next Time? (Video)

    Here is a look at the laziest, most uninterested fan you will ever see at a ballgame. This effort may be even poorer than the one we saw from the Camden Yards security a few months ago.  All he had to do was extend his arm a little more, or maybe even lift his ass […]

    Jays’ Players Sport Mustaches In Cito Gaston’s Farewell Game

    In 1982, Cito Gaston joined the Toronto Blue Jays coaching staff as a hitting coach.  In 1989 he was named the club’s manager and only three years later he would begin a run of back-to-back World Series Championship seasons with the Jays.  Those two league titles would be the last the city would see from […]

    9 Cities That Deserve the Devil Rays More Than Tampa Bay

    Two nights ago only 12,000 people turned out to see one of baseball’s best teams take the field with a chance to clinch a playoff spot. Last night they clinched in front of 17,000. The people of Tampa Bay should be ashamed of themselves, but they probably aren’t which is why they shouldn’t have a […]

    Phillies Fan Picks A Winner, Eats It (Video)

    As a parent, sometimes it seems like no matter how hard you try it is simply impossible to keep your child’s finger out of their nose.  You can tell them a million times, “Don’t pick your nose Kelly, else it is going to start bleeding”, but the second you turn your back, or leave her […]

    Tyler Colvin Impaled By Broken Bat (Video)

    In baseball, standing 90 feet from home plate is supposed to be a good thing, but it turned out to be a nightmare for the Cubs’ Tyler Colvin.  Sitting safely at third base, Colvin was awaiting a hit from teammate Welington Castillo to bring him home, but he surely was not expecting what would happen […]

    Celebrating Bobby Cox’s Retirement With A Giant Corn Field Maze

    When Atlanta Braves Manager Bobby Cox announced that this would be his final year as a bench-boss in the MLB, many of those who knew and loved the 69-year-old legend began to think of ways to honor his storied career and thank him for a job well done. First there was that embarrassing spelling mistake […]

    Here Is Yet Another Baseball Brawl (Video)

    What is going on with baseball players these days?  It almost seems as though every week we have new footage of another bench-clearing brawl that has occurred.  What do they think this is, hockey? Here is the latest brawl to hit the ball park.  It comes from Greenville, South Carolina, where the Greenville Drive and […]

    We here at TPS have given you all several awe-inspiring foul ball catches by baseball fans across America, and throughout the world.  At times, we have also provided a glimpse at the more shameful (or to some, hilarious) side of spectator catches in the game as well.

    Sidney Crosby Hits A Homer At PNC Park (Video)

    It is no secret that Sidney Crosby is the best hockey player in Pittsburgh, but he may also be the best baseball player in the city as well.  Especially when you consider the fact that his toughest competition comes from the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates. When was the last time you saw a player […]

    Picture Of The Day: Where Did His Neck Go?

    Great work by the photographer.  He somehow managed to capture this image at the perfect moment. But what exactly is going on here?  From the looks of it, it appears as though the player with the base in his hands has just smacked his teammate so hard on the head that it literally knocked his […]

    Picture Of The Day: Hu’s On First?

    John: So what’s going on in the baseball game? Mike: Hu’s on first. John:  I don’t know.  You tell me. Mike: Hu’s on first. John: I don’t know who is on first.  I’m not watching the game.  That’s why I am asking you to tell me what’s going on. Mike: Hu’s on first! John: I […]
