    The 15 Best Stories From The 2012 Summer Olympics

    The Olympics always give us a wide variety of stories to tell—stories about legendary performances, human perseverance, or athletes overcoming adversity.

    Usain Bolt Wants To Try Out For Manchester United

    So apparently the World’s Fastest Man, Usain Bolt, thinks he could cut it as a professional soccer player on one of the best teams in the greatest league in the world.

    I think maybe the folks in charge of the Samsung IAAF Diamond League and the organizers of the Bislett Games in Oslo, Norway, might want to review their policies regulating who is allowed on the track after a race before their next meet. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the 100-meter race yesterday in a solid […]

    11 Terrible Sports Statues

    A couple weeks back, the Pittsburgh Penguins officially unveiled a new statue of Mario Lemieux outside the Consol Energy Center.

Perhaps they’re awful (see directly below), crazy, wildly entertaining, or just too good to be true. I wouldn’t wish a reality television show upon my worst […]

    Usain Bolt Wants To Play For Manchester United

    The fastest man on Earth now wants to become the fastest man on the pitch. Usain Bolt has decided to take the rest of the 2010 track-n-field season off to rest his back, but perhaps his real motive behind this leave of absence is to work on his soccer skill in an attempt to play […]

    If Jesus Were Alive Today, He’d Be A Liquid Mountaineer!
