    With Wimbeldon in full swing, we’ve got tennis on the brain. But rather than focus on the high level of play going on at the All England Club, we’ve decided to set our sites a bit lower.

    15 Sexiest Women Of Wimbledon 2012

    I was going to write an exciting article about Prince Charles attending Wimbledon, and how rain delays have pushed back some of the matches. But then I remembered that Prince Charles and rain don’t exactly make for sexy reading, and it would be hard to work in pictures of attractive women into such an article. […]

    9 Of The Greatest Wimbledon Upsets Of All Time

    Yesterday, 79th-ranked Elena Vesnina of Russia upset tennis superstar Venus Williams. Williams’ loss came as a surprise to many. While no one expects the now 32-year-old veteran to play at the same level she did in her prime, a first-round loss at Wimbledon had to hurt. Even so, Venus can at least say she’s in […]

    Animal Interference: 11 Critters Who Interrupted Sporting Events

    Ever since that squirrel ran across home plate just as Philadelphia’s Roy Oswalt was delivering a pitch in Game 4 of the NLDS between the Phillies and Cardinals (a game which St. Louis went on to win), people in St. Louis have been going nuts for the Busch Stadium Rally Squirrel. It’s become a symbol […]

    While most tennis fans were focused on the incredible Men’s Finals match-up between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic this past weekend at Wimbledon, the greatest highlight from the weekend at the All England Club came via the racquet of Iran’s Mansour Bahrami during Saturday’s Senior Gentleman’s Semifinals. After watching his partner, Andrew Castle, field the […]

    Pippa Middleton Is Looking Good At Wimbledon

    How slow has the sports world been the last few days?  So slow that I am actually writing about Pippa Middleton attending Andy Murray’s quarter-finals match at Wimbledon. Yes, with the Dog Days of Summer upon us, the hot weather has quickly dried up the sports scene, causing us to report on members of the […]

    Having won nine of the last 11 Wimbledon Championships, including the last four in a row, there is no denying the fact that the Williams sisters are scary-good on the grass courts at the All England Club.  But with Serena and Venus now eliminated from the 2011 Wimbledon Tournament, there is now something new striking […]

    Andy Murray Gives Us Another Unnecessary Tweener (Video)

    Last week Andy Murray provided us with what may very well have been the most unnecessary tweener shot in tennis history, until now. Murray was at it again earlier today during a third round match against Croatia’s Ivan Ljubicic.  Already leading two sets to one, Murray found himself up 4-2 in the fourth set when […]

    Dick Enberg Talks About “Bloody Blue Balls At Wimbledon” (Video)

    During Venus Williams’ match versus Kimiko Date-Krumm yesterday, Dick Enberg talked about how one of the leaders at the All England Club felt that the combination of yellow balls with green grass stains would result in “bloody blue balls at Wimbledon.”  Unfortunately, the man seemed to have his color wheel mixed up, as green and […]

    10 Must-See Venues for a Diehard Sports Fan

    The nice thing about compiling a list like this is that it’s likely to be just as relevant in 20 years as it is now. Good teams of course come and go, but few places can be regarded as true sports Meccas. Once that distinction is earned, it isn’t quick to go. The best part […]

    Meanwhile At Wimbledon… (GIF)

    This kind of reminds me of the epic three-day, five-set, 11-hour match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut at this year’s Wimbledon tournament:  Two individuals battling back and forth with no end in sight.  Obviously their marathon battle, which will likely remain in the tennis record books for quite some time, was a little more […]

    We All Saw You Pick Your Nose And Eat It At Wimbledon (Video)

    Perhaps it is something about the air in Wimbledon that makes those boogers taste that much better.  Or maybe the lineup at the Food Village was just too long.  How else would you explain this snot-eating incident which was caught during a live broadcast of today’s first-round match between Nicolas Mahut and John Isner. Picking […]
