    Unless you’re from Canada, you probably had no idea that the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship is taking place right now in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta.  While a heartbreaking defeat in the semi-finals has the host Canadians playing Finland for the bronze medal this afternoon, tonight’s gold medal game will feature an interesting match-up between […]

    Russia Brings Us One Of The Worst Fights In Hockey History (Video)

    When it comes to fighting in hockey, we all know that Russians haven’t exactly made an art of it.  Alexander Semin made that quite obvious during a fight with the New York Rangers’ Marc Staal a few years ago, and we were reminded of it once again after witnessing this bout between two seemingly unwilling […]

  • Ovechkin Spending Off-Season Taking Hits From The Bong

    Ovechkin Spending Off-Season Taking Hits From The Bong

    Okay, so it isn’t exactly a bong.  It’s a hookah.  And what he’s smoking from it is probably shisha.  Not weed.  However, that wont stop us from questioning Alex Ovechkin’s off-season regimen.  Not after hearing that in addition to the hookah, the Caps’ forward also ordered two dozen large glasses of beer, fried steaks and […]

    Roy Jones Got Knocked The F*ck Out On Saturday (Video)

    This weekend boxing fans witnessed the tale of two fighters in their 40s who stepped into the ring and experienced two completely different outcomes.  At one end of the spectrum we have Bernard Hopkins, who became the oldest boxer to ever win a championship title at the age of 46 when he defeated Canadian Jean […]

    Super Mario Themed Figure Skating Routine Is Actually Pretty Cool (Video)

    An elbow to the face is one way to make figure skating interesting.  Super Mario-themed routines is another. Russia’s Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov provided us with a glimpse of the latter during the 2011 World Championships in Moscow earlier this week.  Tatiana is clearly playing the role of Mario here, but I am still […]

    Fan Joins In During Canada vs. Russia Hockey Brawl (Video)

    The rivalry between Canada and Russia on the ice appears to be so intense that even the fans can’t keep themselves from getting involved. During a minor league game between teams from the two countries, tempers began to flare, causing players from both teams to exchange shoves, punches and headlocks, much like you would expect […]

    Picture Of The Day: Maria Sharapova Wears Granny Panties!

    Of all the hot female athletes in the world, Maria Sharapova is one of the last I would expect to see in a pair of granny panties.  After all, don’t Russian women only wear sexy lingerie, or no lingerie at all?  So what is with the foot-long lace tighty-whities? Leave it to a pair of […]

    Just a few days ago we provided you all with a stunning gallery of the gorgeous Irina Shayk, who we introduced as Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest girlfriend.  Now we are reintroducing her, this time as the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl.  The 25-year-old Russian first appeared within the pages of SI’s Swimsuit Issue back […]

    Okay, so those aren’t actually Orcs celebrating an IIHF World Junior Championship gold medal.  That would actually be Team Russia, as they were busy celebrating a 5-3 victory over Canada Wednesday night after trailing 3-0 heading into the third period. Although they may not be Orcs, some of the Russian players do bear a striking […]

    Russian PM Vladimir Putin Takes On F1 Racing (Video)

    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has developed an image of himself that involves a life of action and adventure.  He has been pictured in the past shooting whales with a crossbow, piloting a fire fighting plane, and demonstrating his judo skills to the Japanese officials within the popular Kodokan Institute. Now he has decided to […]

    Picture Of The Day: Looks Like Russia Created A New Sport

    So what should we call it?  I was thinking something along the lines of “Rockin’ Soccer.” As for the rules, I believe every player is required to play a couple of riffs after each shot.  And as you would probably imagine, goal celebrations include headbanging, flashing the devil horns, and in some cases, you may […]

    Russian Goalkeeper Embarrassed By 70 Yard Goal

    I don’t speak much any Russian, so I can’t really tell you which teams are playing in this game, who scored the goal, and what the name of that poor unfortunate keeper is.  But what I can tell you is that even in Russia they would probably refer to this as an embarrassment…in Russian of […]
