  • Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    It’s pretty funny to see a dog look himself, long and hard, in the mirror and then tilt his head to the side because he’s not sure if it’s him or another dog, whose heiny he should be sniffing.  Well, it’s about ten times funnier seeing a confused left fielder looking into the outfield wall […]

  • Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    After 27 years of calling the Metrodome their home, the Minnesota Twins had undergone a makeover heading into the 2010 MLB season.  Not only do they have themselves a new ballpark, the outdoor confines of the Target Center, but they also have a new ballpark menu. One of the featured new additions to that menu […]

  • Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Should we consider this to be just another case of “When Mascots Attack”? In a rather ironic twist of fate, Tampa Bay Rays’ second baseman Sean Rodriguez was taking a stroll down the beach when he was stung by an actual stingray.  Rodriguez was with his two-year-old daughter, Sofia, behind their rental condo in Redington […]

  • Stephen Strasburg Baseball Card Inexplicably Going for Over $10,000 on Ebay

    Stephen Strasburg Baseball Card Inexplicably Going for Over $10,000 on Ebay

    The hype surrounding Washington Nationals’ pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, is inordinate.  He’s never pitched an inning in the big leagues and he’s already being touted as the next Nolan Ryan on steroids (not really, as far as I know, but I say that for hyperbole). Well, it appears one Ebay user is trying to take advantage […]

    Picture Of The Day – Jay Bruce Flips Off His Dugout

    Last month when Jay Bruce was in a bit of a hitting skid, no doubt his teammates were giving him a hard time about it.  So, naturally, when he got a hit in the top of the 2nd inning to raise his .130 batting average, he turned to his dugout and had a little message […]

    Nyjer Morgan Drops Fly Ball, Throws Temper (Video)

    It’s always fun seeing an athletic outfielder dead sprint to the track and rob a home run ball or extra base hit.  Even in failing to make the grab, they are one of the more entertaining plays in baseball due to the natural suspense as to whether or not a hitter’s glory will wind up […]

  • Fans Brawl at U.S. Cellular Field (video)

    Fans Brawl at U.S. Cellular Field (video)

    At the end of last week a pretty intense bleacher brawl broke out at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago during the middle of a White Sox/LA Angels game.  A group of dudes were talking jive with the fans behind them, and getting beer poured on them, as they were leaving.  Within the group there looks […]

  • Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Okay, so let’s get one thing straight.  A tattoo paying tribute to Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup game winning goal in 1970 is cool.  A tattoo paying tribute to Dallas Braden’s perfect game in May of 2010 is not. Sure, a perfect game in baseball is quite the accomplishment, but is it tattoo worthy?  I wouldn’t […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Nice Jersey

    Picture Of The Day – Nice Jersey

    Personalized jerseys are becoming quite the phenomenon in the sports fan world.  “He Hate Me” in the now defunct XFL would be so proud of his trend-setting ways.  Okay, it probably started before him, but I feel like sports jerseys with a personal name or something original are popping up more now than ever.  When […]

  • The Nazis Beat The Mets…WTF???

    The Nazis Beat The Mets…WTF???

    Stuart Scott seems to have a way with words.  Unfortunately, that is not always a good thing.  For example, we have these highlights from Wednesday’s game between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals.  That’s right!  I said the Nationals!  But it seems as though Stuart has his own way of saying it. “The […]

  • Dodgers Chick Moons The Camera on Live TV (Video)

    Dodgers Chick Moons The Camera on Live TV (Video)

    Perhaps there should be a rule in sports that forbids any sexy females from sitting in the front row.  They are already enough of a distraction to the men playing the game, and things only seem to get worse when they start taking of their clothes. With the Dodgers fans on their feet in the […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Enjoy What???

    Picture Of The Day: Enjoy What???

    Coca-Cola has made a name for themselves by telling customers to “Enjoy” their product.  Prior to every sip you take of the world’s most popular beverage, you can’t help but recognize the phrase “Enjoy Coca-Cola” that appears on the millions of bottles and cans it comes in.  But do we really need to be told […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Who Are You Cheering For?

    Picture Of The Day – Who Are You Cheering For?

    Let’s do a little analysis of this photo to try and figure out who this woman is.  The positives are this lady is comfortable enough to wear a hat, head to a baseball game, and drink a nice cold brew — awesome.  She also appears to have a small star tattooed on her wrist, which […]

  • Yankees The Latest Victims Of The SI Jinx

    Yankees The Latest Victims Of The SI Jinx

    The Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Halladay was lucky enough to have his Sports Illustrated jinx last for only one spring training game.  The New York Yankees have not been so fortunate.  And to make matters worse, the May 3, 2010 issue of the popular sports magazine featured not one, but four of the Bronx Bombers’ top […]

    Phillies Fan Tased During Game (Videos)

    It’s all fun and laughs when you hop the wall to run on the field at a sporting event. The chubby security guards are always a step too slow, the crowd is going nuts cheering for you and you feel faster than Usain Bolt. But then you are dropped to the ground faster than you […]
