    Check Out this Amazing Color Footage of the 1939 World Series (Video)

    People generally assume that, since most of the movies and photographs we have from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s are in black and white, color photography wasn’t even around. But that’s not true. Technicolor (for movies) was invented all the way back in 1916 and radically improved in 1929, and Kodachrome (for photographs) was invented […]

    The 15 Worst Championship Rings Of All Time

    Over the last month or so I’ve looked at a lot of really amazing championship rings. And while it’s been fun looking at the best the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB have to offer, I’m ready for something different. So today I’m doing a list of the 15 worst championship rings of all time. Now, […]

    Baseball Bling: 15 Best World Series Championship Rings

    This past Saturday was “Ring Day” at Busch Stadium in St. Louis—the day every member of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals (plus every other employee of the franchise) had been waiting for since the team won its 11th World Series Championship back in October. And as it turns out, it was well worth the wait. Rubies, […]

  • The Rally Squirrel Is On The St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series Rings

    The Rally Squirrel Is On The St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series Rings

    Last year we were introduced to the St. Louis Cardinals’ “Rally Squirrel” during Game 3 of the NLDS.  The Cards would go on to win that series against the Philadelphia Phillies, and a few weeks later they would claim the franchise’s 11th World Series title by beating the Texas Rangers in seven games. The Rally […]

    The Best Sports Moments of 2011

    2011 was not a bad year for sports. Sure, there may not have been any historic contests that will go down in history like Rudolph, but basketball, baseball, football, soccer, and hockey brought us VERY exciting championship series/games, which is pretty much all you can ask for as a fan. Some of these moments might […]

  • Listen To Ron Washington’s Profanity-Laden Game 7 Pep Talk (Audio)

    Listen To Ron Washington’s Profanity-Laden Game 7 Pep Talk (Audio)

    Remember when accomplished dancer Ron Washington said the Texas Rangers didn’t need a pep talk for Game 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals? He was lying. This profanity-laden speech is truly priceless. Knute Rockne he’s not, but it’s interesting to get a glimpse at what goes on behind closed doors in the Texas Rangers clubhouse […]

    Picture Of The Day: Too Soon, Part II

    I thought Houston Texans’ fan Chris Brown was stupid when he decided to get a tattoo of his team’s logo with “Super Bowl XLVI Champions” written on it.  Apparently, he isn’t the only over-confident sports fan in Texas that is missing a few brain cells.  I believe this guy’s “Texas Rangers 2011 World Champs” tattoo […]

    The 2011 World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals has been an entertaining one, with two games finishing within one run, another finishing with a total of 23 runs, and the Rangers holding a 3-2 lead as the series shifts back to St. Louis for the final two games.  But despite […]

    9 Most Unlikely World Series MVPs

    The 2011 World Series is in full swing, with the Rangers headed back to St. Louis for Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead over the Cardinals thanks to a huge 4-2 victory last night. And in such a tightly contested series—it looks like we have a pretty decent shot at a Game 7 for […]

    Derek Holland Is A Man Of Many Impersonations (Video)

    On Sunday night Rangers pitcher Derek Holland was giving us his best impersonation of Cliff Lee from last post-season, as he took to the mound and pitched 8.1 innings of two-hit baseball to lead his club to an important World Series Game 4 victory.  Last night Holland had the night off on the mound, but […]
