    J.J. Jegede Jumps Over Three MINI Coopers (Video)

    J.J. Jegede will be looking to earn his country a gold medal during the 2012 London Games, and if there is a competition that involves jumping over MINI Coopers, we like his odds of doing just that. In an effort to promote the all new London 2012 MINI Cooper models – which feature the symbol […]

  • This Day In Sports History (August 4th) – Carl Lewis

    This Day In Sports History (August 4th) – Carl Lewis

    It was on this day in 1984 that American Carl Lewis won the men’s 100 meter race to capture his first gold medal.  The race took place at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. This race marked the beginning of a wonderful Olympic career for Lewis that saw him win nine gold medals and […]

    9 Olympic Flash-In-The-Pans

    It’s hard to call any Olympic athlete a “flash in the pan.” First off, they clearly had a lot of success to get to the Olympic games. Secondly, the inability to achieve Olympic success doesn’t necessarily mean that one hasn’t achieved lot of success in other venues. However, there have been plenty of athletes that […]

    Picture Of The Day: Take That Beijing!

    I hope your sarcasm detector was on while reading that. Drawing/creating a perfect circle is not an easy feat to accomplish.  China came close during the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics (right).  As for the performers on the field during Sunday’s halftime show at Super Bowl XLV (left), it appears as though they […]

    Picture Of The Day: Can I Get In On That Hug?

    You simply have to love the camaraderie that is often on display during team sports.  Whether it is a high-five or a slap on the ass, there may be nothing better than seeing a team come together and take on the challenges placed in front of them.  And speaking of team’s coming together, wouldn’t it […]

  • Picture Of The Day: You Just Did What?

    Picture Of The Day: You Just Did What?

    Meet Takeshita.  Daughter of Gottapissa and sister of Wannacrapa. Talk about a name that gives us too much information.  I think this female’s bowel movements is something I could have gone without knowing about.  But I guess for some, when you gotta go, you gotta go.  Hopefully she doesn’t run into Soilmypantsa on her way […]

  • Picture Of The Day: The Finest Olympic Moment?

    Picture Of The Day: The Finest Olympic Moment?

    If I asked you what your finest Olympic moment was, what would you say?  Would it be Nadia Comaneci’s perfect 10 at the 1976 Montreal Olympics?  How about Sidney Crosby’s overtime game-winning goal during the gold medal hockey game at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver?  Or perhaps it was Muhammad Ali’s lighting of the […]

  • 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: That’s One Painful Way To Get A Piercing

    It may not be quite as bad as getting gored by a bull through the mouth, but having a javelin pierce through the skin on your shin doesn’t look all that pleasant either.  I’m still trying to figure out how the hell that happened.  Perhaps this guy was simply trying to get a better look […]

  • Tyson Gay Breaks 200-Meter Record Headline FAIL (w/Video)

    Tyson Gay Breaks 200-Meter Record Headline FAIL (w/Video)

    For 44-years, Tommie Smith’s 200-meter record time withstood the test of timed track.  His 19.5 hand-timed record has survived some mighty big names over the years, but it couldn’t hold off American sprint star, Tyson Gay. Gay lowered Smith’s record time by 0.09 seconds on the straight track created at the Manchester Great City Games. […]
