  • 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)

    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 […]

  • Picture of the Day: Illegal Wrestling Move

    Picture of the Day: Illegal Wrestling Move

    Wrestling is full of homosexual innuendos.  What, with the tights, some of the starting positions (one man behind the other man on all fours) and, well, wrestling it’s hard not to think that these individuals are really enjoying rolling around on the floor together.  But the line is crossed when one sticks his or her […]

  • Picture Of The Day: What Are You Looking At?

    Picture Of The Day: What Are You Looking At?

    Most men will tell you that they have never watch figure skating.  They would also be quick to say that the men who do take part in this sport are sissies and likely prefer the company of men, rather than the women they toss and turn as they dance around the ice. However, I think […]

  • Let The Search Begin For Sidney Crosby’s Equipment

    Let The Search Begin For Sidney Crosby’s Equipment

    If you happen to be browsing eBay, don’t be surprised to see a pair of gloves and stick belonging to Sidney Crosby on there.  That is likely the next place they will end up after being reported missing following Canada’s gold medal victory over the United States in men’s hockey on Sunday. The last time […]

  • Let The Celebrating Begin! Canada Wins Men’s Hockey Gold!

    Let The Celebrating Begin! Canada Wins Men’s Hockey Gold!

    It is no secret that Canadians love their hockey.  Even the Phoenix Suns’ Steve Nash can’t get enough of it.  So when the Men’s Hockey Team completed Canada’s domination of the top of the medal podium at the 2010 Olympic Games by taking home the gold medal following an overtime winner by newly anointed national […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 2/28/10 – Team Canada Hockey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/28/10 – Team Canada Hockey

    As a Blackhawks fan, my initial feeling was to give this honor to Jonathan Toews.  That first goal was perfectly hit and he has done everything in this tournament besides scoring a goal of his own.  Then I thought, wait a minute, Sidney Crosby scored THE goal in overtime to win a gold medal in […]
