    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?

    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 […]

    Filip Polasek’s Incredible Winner Makes Doubles Tennis Interesting (Video)

    Filip Polasek’s no-look spin-o-rama backhand winner was not quite as good as Victor Hanescu’s US Open trick shot or Roger Federer’s thru-the-legs winner.  It was better! There was little reason to care about the ATP doubles match taking place Tuesday at the Zagreb Indoor court, but Polasek’s brilliant winner against the team of Goran Ivanisevic […]
