    These LEGO Jordans Look Like a Disaster Waiting to Happen (Pics)

    If you thought sneakerheads freak out when you step on the top of their shoe, just wait until they accidentally kick the curb and are forced to pick up thousands of shards of their shoes.

    You probably won’t watch the Pro Bowl on Sunday because, well, why would you?  It’s probably the most meaningless, uninspiring game in all of sports.  So you’re likely better off spending that three hours of your life doing anything other than watching the Pro Bowl’s sixth alternate* quarterback, Joe Flacco, air it out against the game’s seventh […]

    2015 National Championship Uniforms for Ohio State and Oregon Suck (Pics)

    I think I speak for most when I say the following: I really hope the 2015 National Championship Game doesn’t end up being as unimpressive as the 2015 National Championship uniforms.  If it is, it’ll be a disappointing way to end what has been an otherwise impressive inaugural season for the College Football Playoff. Nike […]

    Odell Beckham didn’t put up a monster stat line (he had a modest 7 receptions for 90 yards), or make another miraculous one-handed catch.  But he did manage to make headlines once again this week thanks to Nike’s announcement of the commemorative Odell Beckham gloves, which the rookie wideout wore during Sunday’s loss to the […]

    Derek Jeter Ad Gets Disgustingly Parodied by Boston Company (Video)

    The Derek Jeter ad from Nike was parodied by Sully’s Brand in Boston, and boy, oh boy, is it tasteless. Is it funny? Eh. Maybe. But it’s also plenty gross.
