    Hulk Hogan Revs The Flyers Fans Up For Game 3 (Video)

    Prior to their crucial Game 3 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal battle against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday, the Philadelphia Flyers used the real Hulk Hogan (not the fake one, like you may have seen in Pittsburgh earlier this month) to get their fans amp’d up for the game.  That plan seemed to work, as the Philly […]

    Those who got to Joe Louis Arena early for the pregame festivities prior to Sunday’s playoff home opener against the Nashville Predators may have thought that they had accidentally stumbled into a rave, as red glow sticks lit up the entire building. Fans in attendance were given the red glow sticks upon arrival, and it […]

    With the final seconds winding down during Game One of the opening round playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Nashville Predators, Shea Weber had two things on his mind.  The first was to kill the final five seconds off the clock and ensure that his team earned the important opening game victory.  […]

    9 NFL Prima Donnas Who Didn’t Make The Playoffs

    Not much of an intro is required here, except the Germans have a word for what you feel when these high-maintenance NFL prima donnas don’t get the glory they so desperately seek. It’s called schadenfraude, and it means “pleasure derived from the misfortune of others.” Yup. That’s what this list makes me feel. “Schadenfraude.” I […]

    MLS Playoff Game Between LA Galaxy And NY Red Bulls Ends In A Brawl (Video)

    The visiting Los Angeles Galaxy frustrated the New York Red Bulls throughout the duration of their 1-0 victory during the first leg of their Western Conference semi-final.  It showed following the final whistle, as tempers flared and players from both teams exchanged pleasantries, resulting in two post-game red cards being issued. Seconds after the game […]

    Picture Of The Day: Luongo Doesn’t Always Play Like A Bag Of Sh…

    …  But when he does, he prefers the playoffs. Brilliant! I couldn’t have said it any better myself.  When it comes to the regular season, there aren’t many goalies in the league that you would rather have over Roberto Luongo.  However, that all changes once the playoffs roll around.  Sure, his numbers in the regular […]

  • 5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    5 Reasons to Kill the BCS

    The reasons to drop the BCS system have been bandied about since the program was instituted. I’ve never heard a compelling argument in favor of the current system. In fact, I’ve never heard anyone except athletic administrators and BCS “officials” (whatever the hell they do) even try to validate the system. And their reasons stem […]

    Picture Of The Day: Revenge Of The Nerds?

    I’m not sure I would be so quick to call Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook nerds, but they sure do seem to be playing the part during their post-game press conferences.  So with the Oklahoma City Thunder now headed to the Western Conference Finals after getting a big Game 7 win yesterday against the Memphis […]

    Red Wings Fan Does Some Serious Playoff Redecorating (Pics)

    At Michael Tyler’s home in Livonia, Michigan, NHL playoff time is a lot like Christmas time.  With the hometown Detroit Red Wings making an appearance in each of the past 20 post-seasons, April has always been a time to celebrate for this die-hard fan.  And much like Christians celebrate Christmas by decorating their houses with […]

    LeBron James And Delonte West Hug It Out (GIF)

    I probably don’t have to remind you about all of those rumors that circulated late last season stating that Delonte West slept with LeBron James’ mom, Gloria, while both players were still playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  It was believed to be the cause of the Cavs’ playoff collapse and some also believe that it […]

    Kenny Smith Gets Spooked By Giant Haunted Screen (Video)

    During the NBA post-season, Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson Jr. have had a good time poking fun at Kenny Smith every time he takes the long walk over to “the wall” for another segment of “Kenny’s Pictures.”  That “wall” we are referring to is the giant screen behind the TNT broadcast desk, where Kenny often […]

    Picture Of The Day: Unanimously Wrong

    Yesterday afternoon the Dallas Mavericks accomplished what may have been one of the most unexpected feats in NBA history when they completed their four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers entered the 2010-11 regular season as favorites to win it all, and they were still considered among the top contenders once the post-season […]

    Paul Pierce Gets A Technical Foul For Setting A Pick (Video)

    Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics could have been a lot more interesting down the stretch had it not been for what may very well be the softest (and worst) call of the playoffs thus far. Everyone knows that the intensity of the games gets […]
