  • Mr. T: Hockey sniper

    He’s known for the mohawk, gold chains and catchy phrases like “I pity the fool.” Hockey? Not so much. Mr. T on ice is not a new reality show coming this fall to Fox. It was a reality Tuesday night at United Center in Chicago. During the second intermission, the 80s icon was on the […]
  • Minor league team to let you play while you pee

    The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are going to make a game out of going to the restroom. The Triple-A team for the Philadelhpia Phillies is set to debut a “urinal gaming system” at its ballpark in Allentown, PA. It consists of a video display mounted above each urinal. When a fan approaches, the video console will […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald hobnobbing with Pac-Man in Manila

    We all know it by now — Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald racks up offseason frequent flier miles like he racks up receiving yardage in the regular season (except for 2012, but that wasn’t your fault, Fitz). Fitzgerald takes many pleasure trips as well as a number of humanitarian missions. Earlier this month, he […]
  • D-backs’ Daniel Hudson not fond of baseball card that shows reaction to injury

    There’s little doubt that Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson is not happy about an elbow injury that forced him to miss most of the 2012 season. Hudson tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow on June 26, 2012 in a game against the Atlanta Braves, which is likely a moment Hudson will remember […]
  • Sergio Garcia climbs tree to hit ball and yes, it’s better than most of your shots

    Anyone who has ever played a round or two of golf has hit a shot that leaves them with a pretty terrible lie. We mean, even the best golfers occasionally see their ball sail a direction they did not hope for it to or end up watching it take a bad bounce towards certain despair. […]
  • Keeping up with the Kardashians: Jump ball edition

    Jump balls aren’t considered all that interesting, in fact the college game opts for a possession arrow when needed. However, a jump ball in the Nets vs. Clippers game Saturday night sent the Staples Center crowd into a frenzy. Why? Because former brothers-in-law Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries were at the center of it. We’re […]
  • UA band member lets loose after Saturday’s win over Harvard

    The UA Wildcats are back in the Sweet 16 for the second time in three years after Saturday’s 74-51 rout of Harvard in the Round of 32. If you root for Sean Miller and Co., Saturday’s accomplishment probably didn’t go without some type of celebration. But our guess is your dance moves paled in comparison […]
  • Poster victim Vincent Smith cashing in on brutal hit

    If there is one play that stands out from the rest during the 2012 college football season, it was South Carolina defensive JaDaveon Clowney absolutely crushing Michigan running back Vincent Smith during the Gamecocks’ Outback Bowl win. The beauty is, if you missed it live on New Year’s Day, ESPN has shown the replay of […]
  • Adrian Wilson hoping to trade diapers for number

    Adrian Wilson played 12 seasons for the Arizona Cardinals, and he wore number 24 in the last 11. Now a New England Patriot, Wilson would like to keep those digits, but there’s a bit of a problem. It already belongs to cornerback Kyle Arrington. So, as is customary in sports, Wilson is trying to make […]
  • Florida International creates a very ugly basketball court

    You know that basketball court in Oregon, with the trees and other forest-like stuff? Well, Florida International University is trying to do them one better. Or one worse. Whatever. You can decide. Their proposed monstrosity court can be seen to the left. But we have to warn you, it can never be unseen.
  • Devils goalie scores a goal…for real

    Generally, goalies are the ones preventing goals, not scoring them. But not always. New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur scored the third goal of his career Thursday in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes, and he did it without ever leaving the goalie crease. So lazy.
  • L.A. Kings credit ‘Some Guy’ with two Coyotes goals

    The Phoenix Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings have a solid rivalry going. That is, of course, if a rivalry does not include the teams winning an even number of games. At any rate, the latest dust up between the squads occurred Tuesday night in L.A., with the Kings winning a heated contest by a score […]
  • President Obama picks Belmont to upset Arizona

    President Obama does not like Arizona. The basketball team, the basketball team! Yeesh, folks, no need to get political here. As he’s done in each of the last four years, the president put together an NCAA bracket for ESPN. And he’s got no love for the Arizona Wildcats, picking them to lose in the first […]
  • New Sparky is not the only notable short-timer in Arizona sports history

    On March 1, 2013, Arizona State unveiled a new Sparky. On March 19, 2013, Arizona State put the kibosh on new Sparky, instead deciding to let the ‘ASU community’ design the new look. The mascot’s tenure lasted fewer than three weeks, though the reaction to him was, well, pretty negative (but very funny). Anyway, new […]
  • Gonzaga basketball was very bored

    What do you do when you’ve wrapped up your conference tournament along with a likely number one seed in the NCAA Tournament with time to spare? Obviously you make a video for Youtube, and that’s precisely what Gonzaga did.
