    This Day In Sports History (October 13th) – Bill Mazeroski

    It was on this day in 1960 that the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the New York Yankees in game seven of the World Series.  Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo home run off of Yankees pitcher Ralph Terry. The Yankees entered the series as […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Never!

    Picture Of The Day: Never!

    Since 1908, fans of the Chicago Cubs have been asking themselves “When,” as in “When will the next World Series come?”  And with each passing year, it seems more and more likely that the answer to that question will be an emphatic “Never!” But as the image above indicates, that clearly won’t stop Cubs fans […]

    Picture Of The Day: Sign Of The Apocalypse?

    The Cubs have defeated the Yankees in the 2011 World Series?  Where have I been for the past seven months?  Who won the Stanley Cup and the NBA Championship?  What else did I miss? Has hell frozen over?  Are pigs flying yet? Perhaps I am dreaming? Or maybe I slipped into a coma last night […]

    1950s Civil Defense Movie Predicts World Series Game 2 Score (Video)

    After creating a huge buzz last week, the Charlie Chaplin time traveler mystery was quickly debunked as the supposed cell phone turned out to be nothing more than an old hearing aid.  Fair enough!  But how do all these experts expect to explain the latest case of “time traveler sightings”, which was discovered during a […]

  • Giants Fans Brawl Inside McDonalds (Video)

    Giants Fans Brawl Inside McDonalds (Video)

    I’m no detective, but I think I can figure out what caused this brawl to erupt at a San Francisco McDonalds following the Giants victory. A bunch of drunk fans were too cheap to buy some over-priced food at AT&T Park, so immediately following the game they all rushed over to the nearest McDonalds.  Unfortunately, […]

    Sweet October: The 9 Most Memorable World Series Moments

    Rather than consisting of a constant flow of players moving up and down a basketball court or hockey rink, baseball’s roots are situational, with the memorable moments being defined not so much by the actions themselves as they are by the anticipation of the moment and the moments leading up to it. This has long […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/19/10 — Matt Cain

    Matt Cain is not exactly known as an ace, but he’s been a solid pitcher on the Giants staff for a few years now.  Last night he had to battle Cole Hamels to break a 1-1 tie in the NLCS.  Generally the winner of Game 3 is in the driver’s seat for most playoff series, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee has been one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball over the last few years, if not the most dominant, and he went out and showed it once again in a deciding Game 5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Rangers acquired Lee for just this type of stage, so they could […]

    It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A Derek Jeter Fan!!!

    The only thing better than watching your favorite home town sports team win their league’s championship is going to the parade a few days later.  With thousands of fans in attendance looking to cheer on their newly found heroes, and some even willing to put on a show, these types of events are simply a […]

    2009 World Series Championship Hats Make Strange Statement

    The hats worn by Yankee players last night were…interesting to say the least.  Those hats, created for the Yankees to honor their World Series Championship, had an interesting symbol on the back.  Before we start, if it were me wearing strange merchandise after the Series, it would be those Phillies World Series t-shirts that were […]

    New York Yankees Win First World Series in 9 Years

    The battle between crafty veteran pitchers Andy Pettitte and Pedro Martinez in Game 6 of the 2009 World Series was won by the lefty, Pettitte.  He was superb in the 7-3 win, leading his Yankees to their first title in 9 years.  After going up 3-1 in the series, the Yankees dropped one to the […]

    Spank Him Yanks – Daddy To Whup Pedro Tonight

    When Pedro Martinez takes the mound tonight for the Philadelphia Phillies during game six of the World Series in front of a hostile New York crowd, you can expect to hear them reminding the former Red Sox pitcher who his daddy is. But just in case he forgot, the New York Post was kind enough […]

  • Last Night’s Phillies Victory Means We May Get To See More Fights

    Last Night’s Phillies Victory Means We May Get To See More Fights

    Last night’s 8-6 win by the Phillies means the World Series will now shift back to New York for game six on Wednesday, and quite possibly game seven on Thursday.  It also means hostilities between the fans of both clubs will continue to escalate. That can only mean one thing.  More fighting! It is not […]

    After winning the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Phillies fans were overcome with a great deal of joy, and perhaps even a bit of lust. Now they can’t wait to take home the World Series against the New York Yankees.  Only problem is they currently find themselves down three games to […]
