    9 Oldest Soccer Clubs in the World

    Football, soccer, calcio, fútbol, Fußball—whatever you want to call it, “The Beautiful Game” has a long and rich history. What’s interesting, however, is that this history is not very well known, given that we’re talking about the world’s most popular sport. You see, “football” was a widely popular sport in England in the mid 19th […]

    Picture Of The Day: I Went To A Wedding And A Football Game Broke Out

    There are two things in life that Joe Flacco loves most; his longtime girlfriend, Dana Grady, and football.  The Baltimore Ravens quarterback married one of those things last weekend (I’ll let you guess which one), but he couldn’t leave the other behind.  Wedding photographer Jason Prezant knew this, so he decided to incorporate both into […]

    Darnell Dockett Gets Stopped By The Cops, Tweets Play-By-Play

    While in Maryland for a free football camp on Monday, Arizona Cardinals’ defensive end Darnell Dockett was stopped by police for speeding in his Cadillac Escalade.  Rather than give Dockett a ticket for driving over the speed limit (an accusation Dockett claims was false), the officers seemed more interested in searching his vehicle.  However, Dockett […]

    Picture Of The Day: Grampa High-Steppin’ Into The End Zone

    This is what I’d imagine Al Bundy would look like at the age of sixty.  Just stiff-arming his grandchildren to the ground and high-steppin’ his way into the end zone as he recreates those memories of his glory days at Polk High. Stiff-arming your grandchild sure does seem awfully harsh.  Then again, you don’t score […]

    Lionel Messi Attempts His Own Version Of The “Hand Of God” Goal (Video)

    Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of Diego Maradona’s world famous “Hand of God” goal, which he scored during a quarter-final match against England at the 1986 World Cup.  Maradona scored two goals that game, one being the controversial handball goal and the other coming after he successfully dribbled the ball around and through six England […]

    Picture Of The Day: Derp Throwing Face

    Bill Simmons coined the term “Manning Face” to describe the expression one often finds on the face of Peyton or Eli Manning following a frustrating or disgusting play, such as an interception.  With his new website “Grantland” now taking the internet by storm, we have another quarterback’s face that Simmons may want to take a […]

  • 5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    The reasons to drop the BCS system have been bandied about since the program was instituted. I’ve never heard a compelling argument in favor of the current system. In fact, I’ve never heard anyone except athletic administrators and BCS “officials” (whatever the hell they do) even try to validate the system. And their reasons stem […]

    Most athletes are forced to undergo some form of off-season surgery, whether it is to repair damage to their knee, or to help improve the strength of their rotator cuff.  As for Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, he had a little off-season procedure of his own last week – a hair transplant. The balding 25-year-old […]

    Picture Of The Day: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    So let me get this straight.  Whoever created this chart, which analyzes balls in sports, is trying to tell me that basketball players and bowlers have bigger balls than football players? Bowlers?  Seriously?  And where does the soccer ball fit into this entire equation?  Even their ball is bigger than a football.  I’m not sure […]

    Picture Of The Day: She Said It, Not Me

    It is amazing how teams like the Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins, Chicago Blackhawks, Florida State Seminoles and North Dakota Fighting Sioux have come under fire for using  Native American nicknames and mascots, all the while the South Carolina Gamecocks are allowed to keep their name and raise giant signs with the word “COCKS” on them.

    Getting drafted in the first round, despite most experts projecting you as nothing more that a second round pick and having a hot girlfriend with an incredible body to celebrate the event with?  Yes, things certainly are looking good for Christen Ponder these days. With a solid defensive unit and Adrian Peterson penciled in at […]

    Reggie Bush Tweets Goodbye To New Orleans After Saints Draft Mark Ingram

    When the New Orleans Saints traded away their 2011 second-round selection (56th overall) and their 2012 first-round selection to the New England Patriots so that they could move up to the 28th spot and pick Alabama running back Mark Ingram, it marked the beginning of what could very well be a promising professional career for […]

    The Tennessee Titans’ Justin Gage has given a whole new meaning to the term “ball tease” in this clip.  Did that Pittsburgh Steelers fan really think he would be the recipient of a souvenir from a member of the opposing team?  If so, I’d say he got what he deserved.
