    Some people don’t mind a little showboating in sports. Other people can’t stand it. But one thing I think we can all agree on is that, if nothing else, showboating has a time and place.

    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? Well, that got me thinking: where does Ryan’s tattoo of his wife in a Mark Sanchez jersey rank in the pantheon of ill-advised sports tattoos? Now, by “ill-advised” […]

    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.

    Basketball is getting more popular in Europe every year. More and more players are getting drafted by NBA teams, and the professional Euroleague is getting better all the time.

    Watch This Referee Give the Miami Heat a Helping Hand (Video)

    Maybe Mark Cuban is right after all. I always thought the Mavericks owner was just a hotheaded loudmouth spouting ridiculous conspiracy theories about how refs fix NBA games for certain teams. But I now have to admit that, after seeing the following play, at the very least I can kind of see where the guy […]

    Usually when cheerleading squads perform acrobatic aerial stunts, we hold our breath for the chick getting thrown 10 feet into the air.  After all, they are the ones defying gravity.  And, in fact, not too long ago, a cheerleader for the Orlando Magic named Jamie Woode suffered precisely the kind of thing you fear during […]

    20 Awesome Sports High Five GIFs

    The high five has been a part of sports since time immemorial. It is the primary form of congratulation during a sporting event, right ahead of the traditional sports butt slap.

    Check Out Neymar’s Epic Penalty Kick Fail Against Colombia (Video)

    There have been lots of horrible, embarrassing penalty kicks taken over the years.
