  • Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis Nyquil Ad is, um, Depressing

    Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis Nyquil Ad is, um, Depressing

    I’m not quite sure what to make of the following Nyquil advertisement.  The medicine is supposed to help with a cold and give you a better night’s rest “for a better [looking] tomorrow.”  However, they’ve depicted U.S. snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis as if she has just overdosed on the medicine (like a few celebrities have in […]

    If you’re taking your kitten out for a little stroll in the dead of winter, why not try giving it some Olympic ski goggles?  Then your little kitty can feel like Lindsay Vonn as it saunters about in the snow.  Heck, even the gold bell around its neck can be the pseudo gold medal.  If […]

  • Georgian Luger Dies after Horrifying Crash at Olympics (Video)

    Georgian Luger Dies after Horrifying Crash at Olympics (Video)

    Tragedy has struck the Winter Olympics. I can’t imagine the 2010 Vancouver Games starting off on a more sour note than it has with this horrific, heart-wrenching, accident that occurred to a Georgian Luger, Nodar Kumaritsashvili, during a trial run. Coming around one of the bends, his luge flung him off the track, sending him […]

  • Next Time Remember to let Go – Hammer Toss Fail (Video)

    Next Time Remember to let Go – Hammer Toss Fail (Video)

    I didn’t know hammer throwing was still a sport, but apparently it takes place during the summer Olympics.  Unfortunately, for the sport, it probably receives pretty low ratings.   Maybe it’s just me, but watching steroidal men throw a weight attached to a wire as far as they can doesn’t really get me pumped up. […]

  • Italian Skier Wipes Out and Screams in Pain (Video)

    Italian Skier Wipes Out and Screams in Pain (Video)

    We are coining a new term here at Total Pro Sports today. It’s called “Ski-reaming”. “Ski-reaming” is when you crash badly while skiing then scream extremely loudly because of the massive pain from the wipe out. Unfortunately for her, Nadia Fanchini is the first example of this new term, demonstrated after she loses balance and […]

  • When Ski Jumping Meets Freestyle Aerials (GIF)

    When Ski Jumping Meets Freestyle Aerials (GIF)

    The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver are only a few weeks away, and although much of the talk heading into the Opening Ceremonies has revolved around the ice rinks (thanks to Stephen Colbert’s US Speed Skating sponsorship and Canada’s undeniable love for hockey), that shouldn’t take any attention away from the action on the slopes. […]

    Kiira Korpi is a reason to Watch Figure Skating at the Olympics

    Do you think figure skating is lame? Well, take a look at Kiira “there are two i’s in hot” Korpi and reassess your  thoughts right this instant. Kiira Korpi is a 21-year old Finnish figure skater who will be competing in this year’s Winter Olympics.  She’s a 2007 European Bronze Medalist and took home the […]

  • Dubai Marathon Winner Pukes as Crosses Finish Line (picture)

    Dubai Marathon Winner Pukes as Crosses Finish Line (picture)

    Caveat: These pictures are not for the faint of heart.  As you can see it’s a lady crossing the finish line (first, no less) of a marathon (the Dubai Marathon) and puking at the same time.  Oddly enough, for as unhealthily frail as she looks, the puke looks like it has some chunks in it […]

    Female Bobsledder Rips Spandex on Live TV (Video)

    If you’re a bobsledder — and who isn’t? — you are probably most concerned cracks in the ice. Well now you better be careful for the spandex wardrobe malfunction — a whole different kind of crack concern. Check out what happens to UK female bobsledder Gillian Cooke as she gets ready for a run. A […]

  • Dude Passes Out After 329 Pound Deadlift (Video)

    Dude Passes Out After 329 Pound Deadlift (Video)

    Ever wonder why personal trainers will always tell you that the most important thing to remember while working out is to breathe?  This guy found out the hard way! It was just another day at the gym.  Or at least that’s what it seemed like, but after building up some courage this man decided to […]

  • Hot Archer Shoots Bow and Arrow With Her Feet

    Hot Archer Shoots Bow and Arrow With Her Feet

    I’m not an archery enthusiast and I’m guessing that most people would say the same about themselves.  Maybe you tried it a few times at summer camp as a child, maybe you’ve never held a bow and arrow in your life.  either way I think it is pretty clear that it is a difficult skill […]

  • This Back Flip Attempt Never Had A Chance

    This Back Flip Attempt Never Had A Chance

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell that this guy is not a gymnast (Check out these 25 Hot Flexible Gymnasts)  And if you couldn’t tell upon first glance, all you need to do is watch him perform this daring back flip.  I think it’s safe to say that this backflip attempt never stood […]

  • Snowboarder Clings to Edge of Cliff for His Life (PICS)

    Snowboarder Clings to Edge of Cliff for His Life (PICS)

    I know snowboarding and skiing is fun, and believe me I enjoy watching it on TV whenever the Olympics roll around, but these kinds of stories are what make me terrified of actually getting off the bunny hills.  There’s a difference between fearless and careless.  Fearless is what this photographer did when he snapped the […]
