    Sometimes we call professional athletes “heroes,” but that is just an exaggeration. They’re not real heroes. At the end of the day, you don’t want your kids looking up to those rich prima donnas. You want them looking up to real heroes like firefighters and police officers—people with character and honor who won’t hesitate to […]

    When your hockey team is in the midst of an eight-game losing streak, there are only two things that will help you feel good about yourself again.

    Hockey is infamous for the frequency and intensity of the fights that break out between players, but it’s rare even in this sport for the referees to get involved in the brawls.  After all, it’s generally the ref’s job to break them up, not make them worse.

    Hockey fans in Astana, Kazakhstan, have never seen their local pro team win a KHL playoff series. So when Barys Astana swept Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg in the opening round last week, they were excited. How excited were they? So excited that a group of them went to meet the team’s plane at the airport, then proceeded […]

    As far as selfies go, the one Twitter user @RayFoy4 got on Saturday night at the Devils-Lightning game in Tampa Bay was pretty damn good. It isn’t quite as historic as the one Ellen Degeneres took at the Oscars a few weeks ago, but it’s probably better than any you’ve ever taken. You see, the guy had […]
