    Last Wednesday, just two days after the Boston Marathon Bombing, Bruins fans encapsulated the strength of their city by coming together and singing the Star Spangled Banner in unison during the B’s first home game since the tragic act of terrorism.

    Baseball Is Back, and So Are the Drunken Dancing Fans (Video)

    Drunk dancing baseball fans are back. Thank goodness. Of course, you can see drunk fans dancing like idiots at lots of different sporting events—hockey games, basketball games, football games, you name it.

    This past offseason, the Boston Red Sox signed outfielder Shane Victorino to a three-year, $39 million deal.

    12 Epic Home Plate Collisions

    Ever since Buster Posey broke his leg in a brutal home plate collision at the start of the 2011 season, there has been a lot of talk about eliminating that play from baseball. In fact, the debate flares up pretty much every time we see such a collision now, whether anybody gets injured or not. […]

    This Day In Sports History (April 12th) – Frank Robinson

    It was on this day in 1988 that Frank Robinson replaced Cal Ripken Sr. as general manager of the Baltimore Orioles.  The Orioles lost their first six games of the season, which led to the firing.  They would go on to lose the next 15 games under Robinson to begin the season at 0-21, the […]
