  • Picture Of The Day: Take That Beijing!

    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?

    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

    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. […]

  • Shawn Johnson’s Opening Pitch That Barely Made It (Video)

    Shawn Johnson’s Opening Pitch That Barely Made It (Video)

    Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson may be able to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, but she can’t throw a ball three feet. In attendance to throw out the opening pitch at an Iowa Cubs game, the American gymnast gave us what may very well be the worst performances from the mound ever.  […]

  • When Bobsledding And Skateboarding Collide (Video)

    When Bobsledding And Skateboarding Collide (Video)

    We here at TotalProSports are all about taking your average sport to the next level.  Wherever there is someone willing to turn any athletic activity into something extreme, we are always prepared to show it some love.  This case of bringing skateboarding and bobsledding together is no different. Most people assume that once the snow […]

  • Only Two People In The World Can Do This (GIF)

    Only Two People In The World Can Do This (GIF)

    This is absolutely crazy.  I would have a tough time finding someone who could do this trick using their hands, so to witness someone execute it so flawlessly with the help of only their index fingers is nothing short of ridiculous.  And to think that I thought gymnastics was only interesting when it involved face […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Have You Not Heard of Michael Phelps?

    Picture Of The Day: Have You Not Heard of Michael Phelps?

    Interesting choice by the National Drugs Campaign to pick a somewhat chubby swimmer to serve as its “marijuana wastes potential” poster child.  You know, because there’s this guy whose won a zillion gold medals and just so happens to smoke the reefer, too.  I’m not entirely sure, but that guy certainly looks like the chiseled, […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Crouching Tiger, Folding Table

    Picture Of The Day: Crouching Tiger, Folding Table

    This gymnast has more flexibility in her than a team of NASCAR drivers.  I’m not sure what this stretch is called, considering I would tear both hamstrings completely if I ever remotely attempted such a maneuver, but my guess is it’s called something like “crouching tiger, folding table.”

  • Picture Of the Day: Get Back Here You Pussy

    Picture Of the Day: Get Back Here You Pussy

    I didn’t know it was legal in wrestling to run away during a match, but that’s exactly what it seems like this guy is doing in this picture.  Like a parent trying to drag their last kid out of the car in the parking lot at the dentist’s office, his opponent is pulling on his […]
