  • Larry Fitzgerald: Catches passes, climbs ice

    No one will ever accuse Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald of being a homebody. The seven-time Pro Bowler typically travels the world during the offseason, and this one is no different. Fitzgerald’s latest location appears to be Slovenia, and as posted on his Instagram page, it appears he’s been doing some climbing. On ice. We […]
  • Off the back, on top of the backboard and in

    If you’ve watched basketball for any amount of time, surely you’ve seen a wily player bounce the ball off the back of an unsuspecting defender on an inbound pass and go up for a shot. Markel Walker of the UCLA Women’s team did just that during the 17th-ranked Bruins’ 63-58 win over arch-rival USC Sunday […]
  • Raging Bull, Rocky and Robin Lopez

    Former Sun Robin Lopez has seen his career rejuvenated since being traded to the New Orleans Hornets last July. The former No. 15 overall pick out of Stanford is averaging career-highs in points (11.4), rebounds (5.3) and blocks per game (1.6). Now Lopez hasn’t exactly developed into one of the premier centers in the league […]
  • Diamondbacks spoof GEICO commercial

    You know those GEICO commercials that feature some random scene followed by a couple of guys playing a banjo talking about how happy the person is? They’re kind of funny. Especially this one with a slinky going down an escalator. Or this one with a witch in a broom factory. Or this one with Dikembe […]
  • ‘Charles Barkley, come on down!’

    He hasn’t played in an NBA game in 14 years, but Charles Barkley is just as visible as he’s always been. Don’t believe us? Thursday, Barkley appeared on “The Price is Right” — as a contestant, an advice giver and the host. Sir Charles bid on items related to his career, both on the court […]
  • Amazing half-court shot…by cheerleader

    We’ve seen players, fans, heck, even mascots attempt half-court shots at college basketball games. Usually, the results are predictable — a bad miss and a groan from the crowd. But at William Carey College in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the cheerleaders get into the act. And one cheerleader in particular may have made the shot of the […]
  • Bar Mitzvah rap invite goes viral

    Paper invitations are so yesterday. A 12-year-old boy sent a rap video invite to friends and family for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah in May. Daniel Blumen, aka D Mazel Tov, did a remake version of “Welcome to Atlanta” with some prominent famous faces making appearances in the video. We wonder how young Daniel’s party can […]
  • The Cardinals logo if all NFL logos were British

    Your prayers have been answered. Like us, we’re sure you’ve always wondered what NFL team logos would look like if the teams were British. And like us, now you have the answer.

  • Deadspin makes fun of new Cardinals coach Arians

    Bruce Arians has style. Now, whether or not you like his style is up to you, but there is no arguing he’s got some. Photographed with various different types of headwear since being named the new coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Arians seems to prefer the old-school golf cap look. The folks over at Deadspin.com […]
  • Nets PR department transforms into Captain Obvious

    Statistics don’t always tell the whole story when it comes to sports, unless of course, you’re the Brooklyn Nets PR department. Following the Nets’ 113-111 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night, the department’s Twitter (@Nets_PR) treated fans to a particularly humorous, yet pretty obvious factoid. #Nets now 32-0 when outscoring opponent this season […]
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Coyotes? We dig it

    They’re heroes in a half shell. Or a Phoenix Coyotes sweater. A quartet of Coyotes fans attended Monday night’s game against the Calgary Flames dressed in TMNT shirts with bandanas around their eyes. But if that wasn’t enough, each of them held signs relating Ninja Turtles to Coyotes players. There was Laurinardo Korpikoski (Leonardo), Mikelangelo […]
  • Johnny Manziel: virtually unstoppable, virtually teachable

    With great power comes great responsibility. Apparently with great fame comes great hassle. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, is a popular figure around campus. According to USA Today, Manziel is currently taking all his classes online and shows up on campus once a month. Though the arrangement might seem odd, […]
  • A new candidate for worst free throw ever

    It’s like an epidemic. Embarrassing free throw attempts have popped up all over college basketball this season. Remember this gem from Brian Okam of Appalachian State last December? Yeah, it was bad. But this women’s player from Georgia College has her own nominee in the dubious category. Somewhere, Rick Barry is rolling over in his […]
  • Ole Miss star delivers a rather short post-game interview

    It’s no secret that most athletes don’t enjoy media interviews. They often do so because they are required to, or because they don’t want their image to take a hit. Whatever the case may be, it’s hard to blame them, after all who wants several microphones and recorders shoved in their face after a physically-draining […]
  • Football players kicked off team for ‘Harlem Shake’ video

    The ‘Harlem Shake’ has quickly become the internet sensation of 2013, especially in the sports world. This past week, football players at Division III Susquehanna University (PA) decided to get into the act, turning a routine day of weights into an all-out dance party.
