    Watch People Flopping Like Soccer Players in Everyday Life (Video)

    We’ve become so desensitized to flopping in soccer (and basketball) that we just consider it part of the game now. No longer is it a trait that’s definitively “European.” And that should sadden us, because flopping is ridiculous and cheap. It’s also very funny. Funny because it’s not like athletes are stuntmen who know how […]

    The 11 Biggest Blowouts in World Cup History

    The margin of victory needed for a loss to be considered a blowout varies by sport. In baseball we’re generally talking about a loss of seven runs or more.

    The 40 Craziest Fans at the 2014 FIFA World Cup

    The 2014 FIFA World Cup may not be over, but seeing as how 28 of the 32 teams have been sent packing, the majority of the fans who travelled to Brazil from all around the world have now gone home. And this fact, combined with the realtive lull in the action this week, makes today the […]

    When you send an attractive female reporter out to be “on the scene” with a bunch of drunk sports fans, you have to expect a little blowback. I mean, it’s not like the surrounding fans shouldn’t be responsible for their behavior, but drunks are RARELY holding themselves responsible for their behavior. With that fun little […]

    11 Most Heartbreaking Losses in USA Sports History

    American sports fans are pretty bummed today after watching the USA got eliminated by Belgium yesterday  at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
