    9 Older Stadiums That Need To Go

    For any huge sports fan, the stadium his or her team plays in, even if brand new, should be a of kind of shrine to legendary accomplishments, players, and memories. Unfortunately, some stadiums aren’t up to the task. Rather than serving as monuments to past achievements or future hopes, a handful of run-down stadiums suck […]

    9 Sexiest Sports-Themed Commercials

    In today’s piece, we’re going to show you a ton of commercials, and we’re not getting a dime. Why? On account of their sexiness. Sports commercials have long dabbled in the flash trade, which makes total sense, considering guys like sports and guys like pictures of naked girls. Well, most guys do. So we’ve assembled […]

    The 9 Greatest Sports Podcasts

    Face it: We are knee-deep in the digital age, and podcasts have fast become a viable way of getting your sports news regardless of geography or area of interest. The good news is anyone can do one. The bad news is anyone can do one. So here’s a brief guide to let you know a […]

  • 5 Notorious Sports Groupies

    5 Notorious Sports Groupies

    Perhaps “groupies” is too strong a word, considering these girls’ identities don’t exactly hinge on who they date. But “serial athlete daters” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, so let’s run with groupies, no? For one reason or another, these women have found comfort in the arms of athletes, and, strangely enough, not […]

  • 9 Most Memorable Sports Riots

    9 Most Memorable Sports Riots

    In light of the stupid Vancouver riots that took place earlier this week, we decided to investigate some of the most memorable riots in history, seeing how fans (and players) can react so violently and dangerously to both winning and losing. While none of these actions are forgivable, some were certainly foreseeable (see entry number […]

  • 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: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    Picture Of The Day: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    So let me get this straight.  Whoever created this chart, which analyzes balls in sports, is trying to tell me that basketball players and bowlers have bigger balls than football players? Bowlers?  Seriously?  And where does the soccer ball fit into this entire equation?  Even their ball is bigger than a football.  I’m not sure […]

    Picture Of The Day: Royal Family Trading Cars?

    I was about to purchase a pack of Upper Deck 2010 baseball cards to see if I could get lucky and snag myself an autographed jersey card of St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols, but then I saw what was in the C4 slot. How could I possibly resist the urge to purchase a pack […]

  • 9 Ridiculous Sports-Related Urban Legends

    9 Ridiculous Sports-Related Urban Legends

    Don’t tell me if they’re not true. They’re true as long as we choose to believe them. And I choose to believe these because they’re hilarious. Don’t tell me otherwise, and certainly don’t let a stupid inconvenience like truth get in the way of a good story. As a “journalist,” I can say with absolute […]

  • The 9 Greatest (Dumbest) Sports Toys

    The 9 Greatest (Dumbest) Sports Toys

    Sports toys. It’s a weird phrase. Sports are competitive, and, by definition, toys are not. So where does one draw the line? It’s a tricky question, and one that retailers have not been able to draw. In hindsight, they all seem pretty silly. I rag on pretty much every toy on this list, as a […]

    The 9 Goofiest Names in Sports

    I always felt like there were more, but in boning up on this list topic, I found that there aren’t quite as many funny names as one would think. But the March Madness tournament is always a great place to mine at least four funny names per year. Combine that with college football, and it […]

    9 Awesome Videos of Animals Playing Sports

    I’ll be the first one to admit that this daily piece is culturally biased. For almost a year now, I have been focusing almost exclusively on human athletes. Well, that stops now. I have overlooked a large segment of the sporting population, and with today’s piece, I would like to move the spotlight to some […]

  • 9 Ways to Get Her Interested in the Game

    9 Ways to Get Her Interested in the Game

    Without context, if you’re a girl or guy, watching a pro sports game isn’t that much different than watching an elementary school version of the same sport. The reason we care is because we know these people are the best. When they’re not the best, as college athletes aren’t as good as their pro counterparts, […]

  • 9 Best Sports/Games to Play While Drinking

    9 Best Sports/Games to Play While Drinking

    The criteria for a good drinking game are pretty intuitive. Games should be turn-based, require little to no exertion, and require little to no attention while waiting for your turn. Bonus points if the game requires little to no specific equipment or location. By those accounts, tennis is a really crappy game to play while […]

    9 Worst Excuses to Give Your Bookie

    Ho ho ho! ‘Tis the season for gambling debts. Between tonight’s BCS Championship game and the NFL playoffs, fortunes will be won and lost in the next three months. (Spoiler alert: lost) The smart move is not to gamble, but “addiction” means that you don’t listen to nonsense like that, so come armed not with […]
