    15 Olympians And Their Celebrity Look-Alikes

    The Olympics have a way of radically transforming the lives of athletes. One month a 17-year swimmer can walk down the street and nobody knows who she is. The next she’s a bona fide celebrity appearing on cereal boxes and doing interviews on the Today Show. Of course, not every Olympian needs success at the […]

    13 Athletes With Weird Eating Habits

    We have this romantic notion (usually propagated by Gatorade commercials) that the bodies of professional athletes are high-performance machines that require meticulous maintenance and high performance fuels to achieve peak performance. And for some athletes this is true. In fact, some are so particular about the foods they put in their bodies that you might […]

    20 Awesome Athlete-Celebrity Look-Alikes

    It’s funny how athletes always want to hang out with celebrities, and celebrities always want to hang out with athletes. There’s a weird kind of synergy between the two sets of super wealthy people—each seems to understand the other, and yet each also wants to be like the other. Meanwhile, the rest of us would […]

    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 Sports Record Holders Every Guy Should Know

    There’s only so much room in our feeble human minds to retain all the knowledge we come across as sports fans. So how do we decide what to keep and what to throw out? That’s easy. Listen to us at TPS. There is no shortage of athletes who merit remembering, but since you can’t keep […]

    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, […]

    Hey Four Eyes!: 9 Athletes that Seriously Rocked Goggles

    Guys who need glasses don’t comprise a huge portion of the athletic community. These pointdexters are more at home in a library or science lab than on the playing field. However, every once in a while, a genetic freak comes along with athletic ability AND poor eyesight. However, in order to make this list, you […]

    Michael Phelps and McLovin Party in Vegas (Pics)

    Michael Phelps was out getting his party on in Las Vegas for McLovin’s 21st birthday. It was a huge bash for McLovin, real name Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and some stars were in attendance. But the big question is this: is McLovin kind of like Menudo? Now that he is officially grown up will we still think […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Balance

    Picture Of The Day – Balance

    If you ever hear somebody giving swimmers crap about their sport, step in and call them an idiot.  Swimming isn’t my first sport of choice, by any means, but it’s pretty physically taxing and I respect anybody who can do it well (especially smoke weed and do it well).  After seeing this picture, I guess […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Have You Not Heard of Michael Phelps?

    Picture Of The Day: Have You Not Heard of Michael Phelps?

    Interesting choice by the National Drugs Campaign to pick a somewhat chubby swimmer to serve as its “marijuana wastes potential” poster child.  You know, because there’s this guy whose won a zillion gold medals and just so happens to smoke the reefer, too.  I’m not entirely sure, but that guy certainly looks like the chiseled, […]

    Shaq To Join The Cleveland Police Force

    Shaquille O’Neal, also known as “The Big Shaqckle“, loves the limelight.  He also loves dunking the ball, alienating teammates to the point of forcing a trade, challenging Michael Phelps in a swimming race, and Twitter.  But there is one thing Shaq also seems to like as much as those other things: Being a cop. It […]

    Usain Bolt Sets New 100-meter Record At World Championships [Video]

    Total Pro Sports – Call him a Cheetah, call him a Gazelle, or just call him the one and only Usain Bolt.  This freak of nature out of Jamaica’s career has been one that would be read in a fictional novel, comparable to Michael Phelps in swimming. Today in Berlin at The World Championships Usain […]
