    How Did Tom Brady Avoid Breaking His Back On This Touchdown? (Video)

    While most people were busy trying to figure out how Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard game-tying field-goal attempt with 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of yesterday’s AFC Championship Game, I was still busy trying to figure out how Tom Brady didn’t break his back during his go-ahead touchdown leap on fourth-and-goal from just […]

    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 […]

    Here’s Danny Coale’s Amazing Catch That Was Ruled No Catch (Video)

    While watching the first overtime of last night’s All-State Sugar Bowl between Michigan and Virginia Tech, I thought I had just witnessed the greatest catch of the 2011-12 NCAA Bowl season when Hokies wide receiver Danny Coale made a diving grab at the edge of the end zone, as he secured the ball in his […]

    This Luiz Adriano Dive Is Just Pathetic (Video)

    I just don’t understand soccer players sometimes.  Do some of them have so little respect for themselves that they are willing to have the entire world laugh at their diving antics so that they can get nothing more than a free kick, and maybe a yellow card, out of it?  Do they enjoy being the […]

    Perhaps one of the biggest knocks on the game of soccer is the excessive diving.  Even the sport’s most loyal fans can’t seem to stand the sight of its players flipping, flopping and rolling all over the pitch following the slightest bit of contact, or in some cases, no contact at all. Therefore, it is […]

    Check Out LeBron James’ Oscar-Worthy Flop (Video)

    The Stat Line of the Night wasn’t the only award LeBron James received for his performance last night during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  He also earned an Oscar for best dramatic performance after drawing a foul on the Bulls’ Derrick Rose following this phantom face-poke. This was just one of the many […]

    Joe Thornton Does His Best Soccer Player Impression (Video)

    The NHL playoffs often provide stories about heroic performances from players who demonstrate an impressive ability to sacrifice their bodies and play through injuries.  However, at times the story during this year’s playoffs has been the continuous efforts of players to embellish even the slightest infraction in order to earn a power-play. Players from just […]

    Is This Guy The Epitome Of Soccer Sissies? (Video)

    It is stuff like this that gives soccer players a bad name. Don’t get me wrong here.  I enjoy watching the sport, but there is only so much flopping and diving that I can stand to watch before I have had enough.  And after watching this embarrassing display, I think I have had enough. For […]

  • Chris Bosh Flops Following A Phantom Elbow (Video)

    Chris Bosh Flops Following A Phantom Elbow (Video)

    You could have put Chris Bosh in a soccer uniform last night and the Miami Heat forward wouldn’t have looked even the slightest bit out of place, thanks to a rather embarrassing flop he took while defending the Chicago Bulls’ Carlos Boozer. Midway through the second quarter, it appeared as though Boozer had elbowed Bosh […]

    Rate This World Cup Dive (Video)

    Nigeria held a 1-0 lead and were dominating the run of play thirty minutes into their match with Greece yesterday afternoon at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, South Africa.  Then with one swift kick of the boot, the tables turned on the African side. Chasing down a ball that was headed out of bounds, […]

    Iraq Goalie Mohammed Gassid Proves That Soccer Dives Never Get Old

    Total Pro Sports – After watching this video, I can’t help but think that the only thing move painful than a real soccer kick to the face is a fake one.  It is one thing to fake being hurt when you are actually touched, but Iraq goalkeeper Mohammed Gassid looked to have been shot after […]
