    This Day In Sports History (July 6th) – 1983 MLB All-Star Game

    It was on this day in 1983 that the 54th annual Major League Baseball All-Star Game was played.  The game took place at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois, home of the Chicago White Sox. This game took place exactly 50 years to the day that the first All-Star Game was held, also at Comiskey Park.  […]

    Let’s Watch The Chicago Bulls Flop Around The Court (Video)

    I enjoy watching the Chicago Bulls play on a regular basis.  With players like Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer occupying the floor for them, they always seem to provide some excitement.  Last night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks was no different, as the Bulls erased a 14-point fourth quarter deficit to beat Atlanta […]

    Patrick Kane Scores An Incredible Shootout Goal (Video)

    Patrick Kane is accustomed to using his blazing speed and accurate shot in order to score goals, but he didn’t need either to beat Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom during last night’s shootout.  Moving towards the goal at a snail’s pace, all that the Blackhawks’ All-Star forward needed was some wicked stickhandling in order to […]

    Cross ‘Em Off the List: 11 Best Sports Cities (To Visit)

    If you’re traveling to a city for a sporting event, a great game will only get you so far. Watching your team trounce its rival is good for something, but before and after, there has to be a scene that further validates your trip in a way that athletic accomplishment can’t. Where’s the party? If […]

    Weightlifter Attempting To Squat 1008 lbs. Projectile Vomits On Judge Before Passing Out

    Barbell with 1008 pounds of weight attached?  Check!  Hard rock-n-roll music playing in the background?  Check!  Team of five spotters standing by?  Check!  Breathing?……Yeah, I though he forgot something. This 21-year-old was preparing to assert himself among the top powerlifters at the Sr. Nationals in Chicago when he forgot one simple and incredibly important rule; […]

    Boyz II Men Are Dwyane Wade’s Karaoke Go-To Group

    Total Pro Sports – It is great to see professional athletes give something back to the community through charity work, and basketball players have become especially involved over the summer.  Several of the NBA’s stars played a little soccer in Chinatown, New York a few months early, and just recently Dwyane Wade took the time […]

    14,641 Gatorade Bottles Used To Create Michael Jordan Mosaic

    Total Pro Sports – They say a picture can tell a thousand words, but when it is a giant image of Michael Jordan constructed from 14,641 Gatorade bottles, it seems to say so much more.  Just don’t ask Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zombrano what he thinks about Gatorade. Gatorade teamed up with American advertising agency […]

    2008/09 Columbus Blue Jackets Season Preview

    4. Columbus Blue Jackets I really like what GM Scott Howson has done with this team.  However, I’m unsure of just how well this team will gel together so that’s why I have them ranked this low.  Their forward group is solid with Rick Nash, R.J. Umberger, Kristian Huselius, Derick Brassard, Fredrik Modin, Raffi Torres […]

    You’re not Jordan! NBA Finals Game 6

    Sitting in the TD Banknorth Garden last night with two of my friends, I realized that I had just witnessed a game most people could only dream about seeing. It didn’t matter to us that we paid $1,300 a ticket, $450 for a plane ride and $385 for a hotel room, for me, it was […]
