    Hooters Ball Girl Picks Up Fair Ball, Gives it to a Fan (Video)

    It seems as though every year, you can count on us to provide our readers with at least one update on the Hooters ball girls that can be seen patrolling the foul grounds during Philadelphia Phillies spring training contests.

    Watch Russell Westbrook Get Rejected by the Rim (Video)

    How often does an NBA player miss an uncontested layup or dunk? Like, once every fifty chances—or something like that? That’s just a guess. I don’t know the numbers, but I know it is rare.

    In the world of pro sports, athletes get 99% of the attention. And that’s probably fair, since without them nobody would watch. But there are a lot of other people involved in making sports happen, and every once in a while it’s nice to give them a shout-out. A few months back we tried to […]

    21 Ill-Advised Sports Tattoos

    Remember last week, when we told you about the rather interesting tattoo New York Jets coach Rex Ryan showed off on his Christmas vacation in the Bahamas?

    Is This the Worst Free Kick Ever? (Video)

    In recent months we have seen some pretty terrible penalty kicks. There was the terrible one by Jonathan Soriano of Red Bull Salzberg in Austria.
