    Vince Wilfork Plays Basketball, Calls Himself “The Real MJ” (Video)

    The season premiere of HBO’s Hard Knocks is set to air tonight, and with the cameras focused on the Houston Texans training camp this time around, you can expect newly-acquired defensive tackle Vince Wilfork to get plenty of airtime. The producers of the show don’t seem to be shying away from that notion.  Rather, they […]

    Here’s the Trailer for HBO’s Will Ferrell Spring Training Documentary (Video)

    Remember when Will Ferrell played 10 different positions for 10 different teams and earned his very own Topps baseball card during MLB Spring Training? At the time it seemed like just another sports-related publicity stunt from the world’s funniest sports fanatic. (Well, maybe the world’s second-funniest sports fanatic.) But as it turns out, it was not just […]

    Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Shatters PPV Records

    We all knew that the highly-anticipated (and incredibly underwhelming) Mayweather-Pacquiao fight would break many of boxing’s previous revenue records, but I’m not sure anyone expected this, via a press release from HBO: The boxing blockbuster event, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, shattered the previous record for total pay-per-view buys and now ranks as the highest-grossing […]

    After the lackluster Mayweather-Pacquiao fight (which we’re all ready to stop writing/talking about, I think) we could use a little excitement in the ring. Fortunately, Canelo Alvarez was able to bring just that in his matchup against James Kirkland. After landing some stiff punches in the opening rounds, sending Kirkland to the mat several times, […]

    “Game of Thrones”: NBA Edition (Video)

    The big trend at the present moment is mashing up the HBO series Game of Thrones with other things —the availability of a word that rhymes with “thrones” being only a bonus.  So it figures that we now have Game of Zones, an animated Game of Thrones spoof featuring characters from the NBA. Game of […]

    Like most iconic fictional characters, you see a little bit of Kenny Powers in a lot of places. But one intrepid photographer has found someone who embodies Kenny Powers to a much greater extent than you might have even thought possible. The photo, which you can see up above, shows this “Latino Kenny Powers” doppelganger […]

    Lolo Jones Is The Hottest Virgin At The 2012 Summer Olympics (Pics & Video)

    The London Olympic Committee will be providing athletes at this year’s Summer Games with 150,000 condoms.  Chances are not one of those condoms will be used by American sprinter Lolo Jones.  And it isn’t because she doesn’t practice safe sex.  In fact, Lolo happens to practice the safest form of sex: celibacy. During a recent […]

    Ilya “Universe” Bryzgalov Shines Again (Video)

    Something tells me that this may soon turn into a weekly segment titled, “What Kind of Crazy Thing Did Ilya Bryzgalov Say This Week?” During the first episode of HBO’s 24/7 Flyers/Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic, Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov enlighten us all about the universe, Russian alcohol, tigers and Chinese laws.  This […]
