    11 Of The World’s Greatest Drunken Athletes

    Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day, the one day a year where we celebrate all things Irish. It also happens to be the one day a year where it’s perfectly acceptable to be drunk by ten o’clock in the morning—because we love cultural stereotypes and pretty much any excuse to get sloshed. Now, last year Total […]

    12 Aging Superstars Dropped Like Bad Habits

    Everyone’s talking this week about how the split between Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts was so classy and dignified. And I guess it was about as “classy” as an unwanted, unhappy ending can be. But it’s still sad. Pretty much everyone (besides the hopefuls in Miami, Arizona, Seattle, and Washington) would have preferred to […]

    9 Athletes You Never Thought You Would See In Another Uniform

    Yesterday it was announced that Albert Pujols agreed to a $254 million, 10-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, finally putting an end to months of speculation about the future of baseball’s greatest slugger.

    Here Is A Look At Brett Favre’s Boradcasting Debut (Video)

    During his 20-year career as an NFL quarterback, Brett Favre was usually the one making the plays, both good and bad.  Now that he has retired from the game, Favre has moved into the press box, where he will be calling the plays while others make them. Favre made his broadcasting debut for CSS alongside […]

    9 Greatest Athletes Over 40

    Growing old gracefully doesn’t really happen in sports. You get old, then the wheels come off. Which makes a lot of sense considering the toll taken on the bodies of almost all pro athletes. However, occasionally, some men and women through determination, become statistical outliers, owning the game well after most players are retired. Here’s […]

  • 9 Instances When It Was (Sort Of) Okay for Athletes to Cry

    9 Instances When It Was (Sort Of) Okay for Athletes to Cry

    That title is a little misleading. I”m not sure it’s ever truly “okay” for athletes to cry. Sure, there is the drama of competition, and of course emotions run high, but it’s still somewhat uncomfortable to see these modern-day gladiators break down in tears. I understand it, but I really don’t like it. Fortunately it […]

    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 […]

    Brett Favre Asks “What Should I Do?” (Nike Rise Parody Video)

    The original LeBron James “Rise” commercial was good.  The response from the people of Cleveland was better.  And the spoofs by both South Park and the UFC were equally impressive.  But they all take a backseat to the latest “Rise” parody, which features none other than Brett Favre and his purple helmet. Not only is […]

    A Closer Look At Brett Favre’s $50K Fine

    With Brett Favre’s NFL career likely coming to an end Sunday afternoon as he watched his Vikings from the sideline in street clothes, the attention of most NFL fans will likely be on the legacy that the 41-year-old gunslinger is about to leave behind.  But while they will be busy looking back on the past […]

  • 10 Greatest Sports Bloopers of 2010

    10 Greatest Sports Bloopers of 2010

    “Bloopers” might be the wrong term for this list, but it’s the best-known, so we’re using it anyway. A blooper is generally taken in with humor. Lots of the screw-ups on this list are funny, but a few are awful. But still kinda funny. When professional athletes are beset with bad fortune, it makes us […]
