    13 Sexiest Spring Break Sports

    Every year at this time, every college student on every college campus in America has his or her mind on only one thing: March Madness. And I’m not talking about the basketball tournament. Only 68 schools get to participate in that. No, I’m talking about the other kind of March Madness: spring break. It’s right […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Sure Does Like Swimming

    It goes without saying that hockey players love playing hockey, football players love playing football, soccer players love playing soccer and basketball players love playing basketball.  However, if the above picture is any indication, it appears as though none of those athletes love their sports as much as a swimmer loves to swim.

    9 Obscure Sports Museums

    In the past seven weeks, the sporting press has spilled a lot of ink (both real ink and, in the case of sports websites like this one, virtual ink) covering the 2011 inductions to both the baseball and football halls of fame. It makes sense, of course, since these are some of the most popular […]

    9 Most Boring Sports to Watch on TV

    Sometimes, the “next best thing to being there” can be pretty damn boring. Many sports hinge on atmosphere or a sense of intimacy that the camera just can’t capture. And sometimes, boring sports are just made more boring by not being there. The good news is, if you’re watching a boring sport on TV, you […]

    Blind Swimmer Inspires His Teammates (Video)

    Counting each and every one of your strokes as you race across your lane can be difficult while in the heat of the battle, but it is what Jason Polansky must do every time he jumps into the pool.  Not because it helps him stay focused, or because it is some crazy superstition, but because […]

    Picture Of The Day: She’s Paid To Do That!

    You would think that this synchronized swimmer’s position is one of discomfort, but after taking a look at her facial expression, I can’t help but believe that she is actually enjoying herself, in an arousing sort of way. As for the females on the bottom, they appear to like what they see as well. And […]

    That’s An Odd Looking Dive (GIF)

    I’m not sure what to be more amazed about:  The fact that this guy actually believed the diving board would support his fat ass properly, or the giant splash that was still created even though he simply spilled over into the pool.  I can’t help but believe that if this GIF had been a few […]

    Free Diver Free Falls into Blue Hole (Video)

    I’m not sure how far underwater one can go before his or her head explodes (I think 1,000 feet), but this free diving world champ doesn’t seem to mind flirting with death. World famous French free-diver Guillaume Nery decided to take on the task of free diving into the Blue Hole in the Bahamas, which […]

    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: 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, […]

  • Female Diver Smashes Face against Diving Board (Video)

    Female Diver Smashes Face against Diving Board (Video)

    We’ll call this dive the single somersault face plant.  Its degree of difficulty is quite high, but I think it is fair to say that this young female nailed it, literally! Diving board faceplants have to be one of the most frightening sports catastrophes.  Think about it.  You are about to dive into a deep […]

    Total Pro Sports – Michael Phelps, arguably the greatest swimmer ever has decided to splurge on himself and get a car that may or may not be faster then him.  We just hope that this time he can control the speed and not end up crashing like he did his last vehicle. Following in the […]

    Ricky Berens’ Bare Butt Exposed At World Swimming Championships

    Total Pro Sports – Records weren’t the only things breaking during the World Swimming Championships in Rome. The swimsuit of Ricky Berens was as well, making him the latest victim of a swimming wardrobe malfunction. Last time it was Flavia Zoccari exposing her butt to the world at the Mediterranean Games.  This time it is […]
