  • Indians Celebrate Anniversary of “Major League” Movie

    Indians Celebrate Anniversary of “Major League” Movie

    Total Pro Sports – Last night marked the 20th anniversary of the popular baseball comedy “Major League”.  A movie about a dysfunctional Cleveland Indian baseball team that goes on to win the pennant, it is referred to by some as the greatest baseball movie ever, or at least one of the best comedies of the […]

  • K-Rod And Bruney Stir Things Up In Subway Series Finale

    K-Rod And Bruney Stir Things Up In Subway Series Finale

    Total Pro Sports – If Yankees reliever Brian Bruney thought K-Rod’s celebrations were a little overdone, then just imagine what he thinks of the Mets reliever’s reaction to such comments. The two combatants had to be separated by teammates during batting practice yesterday prior to the final game between the Yankees and the Mets at […]

  • Milton Bradley’s Kindness Results In Terrible Error

    Milton Bradley’s Kindness Results In Terrible Error

    Total Pro Sports – Friday June 12th may go down as Milton Bradley’s worst day of work ever.  When considering the types of days this Chicago Cubs outfielder has had, that can be quite scary.  If he is looking for ways to deal with the expected taunting from fans, he will likely want to avoid […]

    Angels Ervin Santana Says “F*ck It, Lets Pitch” On Live TV

    Total Pro Sports – When a reporter puts his mic to the mouth of a professional athlete, there is no telling what will be said next.  Often we are faced with the same boring questions, which produce the same boring answers, but following a game against the Detroit Tigers last week, Anaheim Angels pitcher Ervin […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/08/09 – Sean West

    Total Pro Sports – After getting off to the best start in the entire league, the Florida Marlins have fell on rather tough times.  They now find themselves in fourth place in their division, with only the lowly Washington Nationals under them.  In desperate need of a turnaround, Sean West did all he could on […]

    When Umpire Mike Winters Calls A Strike, He Is Not F*cking Kidding!

    Total Pro Sports – Technology in sports is a beautiful thing.  Not only have we been blessed with great angles and views to watch every home run, goal, basket, or whatever other outstanding play can be made in sports, but now we can hear the action as well thanks to the notion of players and […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/07/09 – Roy Halladay

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/07/09 – Roy Halladay

    Total Pro Sports – One start after throwing 133 pitches in a complete game effort, Jays coach Cito Gaston was keeping a close eye on his ace, Roy Halladay.  How would the Doc respond?  How about another complete game, but this time it only took 97 pitches to close out the Kansas City Royals. With […]

  • Have We Entered The Age Of Sports Entertainment?

    Have We Entered The Age Of Sports Entertainment?

    Total Pro Sports – If 80s’ quasi sci-fi movies are to be believed, our bloodlust will eventually overcome us and instead of paying to see Matt Millen butcher a franchise, we’ll get to see ex-convicts disembowel each other on roller skates. Obviously/hopefully these ideas are firmly within the realms of fantasy, but have we come […]

  • Detroit Tiger Fans Don’t Want Tiger Stadium To Go

    Detroit Tiger Fans Don’t Want Tiger Stadium To Go

    Total Pro Sports – Less then 2 hours into the demolition of Tiger Stadium, destruction was halted after Wayne County Circuit Judge Isidore Torres issued a temporary restraining order until Monday. I have no idea why any Detroit fan would want to keep Tiger Stadium around? After being 60% demolished last year, only the stands […]

  • Jays Alex Rios Is Clearly Not In The Mood To Sign Autographs

    Jays Alex Rios Is Clearly Not In The Mood To Sign Autographs

    Total Pro Sports – When a big leaguer turns down an autograph request from an older man, it is often understandable.  They do not want him to go and sell it (like he probably will) in order to make a profit.  After all, the only ones who should be making the big bucks are the […]

  • Randy Johnson Gets Win 300.  Will He Be The Last?

    Randy Johnson Gets Win 300. Will He Be The Last?

    Total Pro Sports – Last night was a historic day in baseball as Giants pitcher Randy Johnson became the 24th pitcher to reach 300 wins in his career.  Take in the moment folks because we may never get to celebrate such an accomplishment again. The wait for Randy to reach the milestone has been that […]

  • Avril Lavigne Throws Opening Pitch At Blue Jays Game

    Avril Lavigne Throws Opening Pitch At Blue Jays Game

    Total Pro Sports – Hopefully Gary Dell’Abate, a.k.a. Baba Booey, wasn’t watching last night’s Toronto Blue Jays game.  If he was, he may be asking himself two things: 1.  “Do I really throw like a girl?”  The answer which would be an emphatic NO.  Sorry Gary.  Girls have a much better arm than you.  Don’t […]

  • Chicago Cubs Bleacher Boys Have Some Fun

    Chicago Cubs Bleacher Boys Have Some Fun

    Total Pro Sports – Some sports fans always seem to want the most expensive seats in the house, assuming that the front row is the best place to catch the game from.  Contrary to what the ticket price may have you believing, that isn’t always the case. Meet the Chicago Cubs Bleacher Boys.  They sit […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/03/09 – Jeff Niemann

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/03/09 – Jeff Niemann

    Total Pro Sports – Maybe this is the turn around game for the World Series finalists Tampa Bay Rays.  They are now one game below .500 after handing a devastating 9-0 loss to the lowly Kansas City Royals.   You would think that with the season that the Rays had last year they would be better […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/02/09 – Roy Halladay

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/02/09 – Roy Halladay

    Total Pro Sports – Roy Halladay has been as close to unstoppable that MLB pitchers get.  If his 9-1 record doesn’t prove that, then maybe one should consider the fact that his last two starts were no decisions, even though one was seven shutout innings and the other he handed his bullpen a 5 run […]
