    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

    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 […]

  • 11 Creepy Wax Statues of Great Athletes (and Gilbert Arenas)

    11 Creepy Wax Statues of Great Athletes (and Gilbert Arenas)

    This piece might as well be titled “11 Wax Statues.” “Creepy” and “wax statues” go together like beer and pizza. It appears that Madame Tussaud’s is simply giving away wax representations of athletes and celebrities these days (Gilbert Arenas? Really?). But as long as rube tourists are willing to shell out $20 a pop to […]

    25 Years of Greatness: 14 Awesome Air Jordan Commercials

    It’s been 25 years since the launch of Nike’s Air Jordan line. And there’s is no better example of how to situate a star in a product line than the Air Jordan ad campaign, which has been running since 1985, and now runs without the man himself. With these ads, and the later Bo Jackson […]

    The Breakfast of Champions: 15 Iconic (and, or Ironic) Wheaties Boxes

    “Better eat your Wheaties,” was once a common response to a child saying they wished to be a professional athlete. Originally, it was a marketing slogan, but it became a popular refrain, which must have put the Wheaties ad guys on cloud nine. Few products are so closely linked with champions (sorry, Buick) as Wheaties, […]

  • Like Father, Like Son…Marcus Jordan Slams One Home (Video)

    Like Father, Like Son…Marcus Jordan Slams One Home (Video)

    We probably shouldn’t expect Marcus Jordan to provide us with as many highlight reel dunks as his father, Michael, delivered throughout his college and professional basketball career.  However, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t expect anything from the son of “His Airness.” Marcus gave us a little glimpse of things to come last night when […]

  • Picture Of The Day: What If…

    Picture Of The Day: What If…

    John Elway with the Raiders? Michael Jordan a Knickerbocker? Larry Bird in LA LA Land? Derek Jeter on the BoSox? These images are enough to bring a tear to the eyes of Broncos, Bulls, Celtics and Yankees fans alike. However, the real question we should all be pondering is just how would the fans of […]

  • Marcus Jordan Blew $56k in Vegas of His Dad’s Money

    Marcus Jordan Blew $56k in Vegas of His Dad’s Money

    Only a spoiled, rich kid would actually tell the world about he spent too much of his Daddy’s money on a bunch of nothing. And such is the case with Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan’s son. In a tweet that has since vanished, Marcus thought it must have been cool to describe his escapades in Vegas. […]

    9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    While athletes have the ability to amaze us on the field, the advent of viral videos allows many of those same athletes to blow us away just by screwing around. Be it during practice, outtakes during commercials or photo shoots, even when the pressure’s off and nothing’s at stake, the best of the best can […]

    9 Classic McDonald’s Happy Meal Sports Toys

    Upon writing this article, I was both shocked and dismayed to find out that McDonalds has recently been bullied by politicians to stop including toys in their Happy Meals. Their claim is that the inclusion of toys encourages children to eat unhealthy food. Which is odd, because seeing as how McDonalds is a fast food […]
