    Gatorade Under Fire For New Michael Jordan Commercial (Video)

    On June 11, 1997, Michael Jordan turned in one of the greatest and most memorable athletic performances the history of modern pro sports. I am talking, of course, about Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, more commonly referred to as “the flu game.” Despite suffering from the nausea, aches, pains, and a 103 degree […]

    It was on this day in 1986 that Michael Jordan set an NBA playoff record with an incredible 63 points.  Jordan broke the mark that was previously held by Elgin Baylor who scored 61 points in the 1962 NBA finals. Jordan was able to play in only 18 regular season games that year due to […]

    11 Fantastic Sports Statues

    Sports statues are like pizzas: sometimes you don’t know how truly bad one is until you get a taste of the really good stuff. Thus, maybe you checked out our list of bad sports statues yesterday and thought to yourself, “these aren’t that bad, are they?” But they really are bad. And once you see […]

    This Michael Jordan Portrait Hairstyle Is Amazing! (Video)

    Every artist has a preference when it comes to canvases.  For Joe Barber of San Antonio’s Razor Sharp Cutz, his preference is the head or any other area of a person’s body where hair is present. I’m not quite sure how many chests, backs, butts or legs he has worked on in the past, but […]

    9 Athletes You Never Thought You Would See In Another Uniform

    Yesterday it was announced that Albert Pujols agreed to a $254 million, 10-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, finally putting an end to months of speculation about the future of baseball’s greatest slugger. And while I’m glad that the sports world can now finally move on, I must admit that it will […]

    When I’m 48-years-old, I’ll be happy if my knees aren’t completely shot, my liver is still intact and I’m not on my third replacement hip.  As for Michael Jordan, in addition to a clean bill of health, he still appears to have his high-flying abilities.  He demonstrated some of those abilities in a gym recently, […]

    This Is The Only Argument We Need LeBron! (Video)

    Scottie Pippen and the rest of the LeBron James fan club can now crawl back into the holes they came out of.  The mighty Heat have been slain.  And LeBron’s NBA Championship count is still stuck at zero.  So for those who would still like to make the argument that LeBron is better than Michael […]

    This Is One Video Scottie Pippen Should Probably Watch (Video)

    During an interview with ESPN radio last Friday, Scottie Pippen said that Michael Jordan “is probably the greatest scorer to play the game” but LeBron James “may be the greatest player to ever play the game.” After watching James and the Heat begin the celebration early, only to  blow a 15-point fourth quarter lead to […]

    11 Popular Pop Songs That Name-Check Athletes

    Sports and music go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Both professions garner notoriety, breed a culture of financial indiscretion, and both are just kind of awesome. So it’s no wonder that the two bleed together, like when LeBron James refused to acknowledge a beef with DeShawn Stevenson, saying that would be like “Jay-Z getting […]

    9 Instances When It Was (Sort Of) Okay for Athletes to Cry

    That title is a little misleading. I”m not sure it’s ever truly “okay” for athletes to cry. Sure, there is the drama of competition, and of course emotions run high, but it’s still somewhat uncomfortable to see these modern-day gladiators break down in tears. I understand it, but I really don’t like it. Fortunately it […]

    Picture Of The Day: Michael Jordan And The Crew

    For today’s “Picture of the Day” we take you back to 1989, when the epitome of everything cool in the universe met in the same room for a brief moment.  Thankfully, that moment was captured in an image, as a much younger Michael Jordan posed with Kid ‘n Play, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff. […]

    6 Sports Rumors That Are Total Bullsh*t

    Few things lend themselves to exaggeration and hyperbole like the world of sports. People always want to believe that their athletes are superhumans or that magical forces are at work, guiding them to victory or striking them down with injury. Well, that’s not really the case, no matter how many people believe it. And according […]
