  • ‘Super Marion Bros.’ makes an appearance in Dallas

    Suns fans surely remember forward Shawn Marion. A four-time All-Star, Marion earned a reputation for being an outstanding rebounder for his size as well as excellent finisher on the fast break. He also had one of the ugliest looking jumpshots in the history of the game. Still does, actually. Anyway, what does all this have […]
  • ‘Modern Family’ tackles the Fiesta Bowl

    OK, so some of us have never seen the ABC show “Modern Family.” That doesn’t make us bad people, right? Oh wait, it does? Shoot.

  • Want to see every fan in the NHL? Of course you do

    Yes, we know the NHL is still locked out, but that doesn’t mean the league cannot provide us with a chuckle or two. The comedy people over at NOC, who have done a great job with their “Every Fan of the ____” series, are at it again. This time they take on the NHL, and […]

    D-backs’ Brandon McCarthy’s driver’s license snafu

    Who knew the Arizona Diamondbacks acquired a 6’7″, right-handed female pitcher this winter? According to Deadspin, Brandon McCarthy was mistaken for a woman on his new Texas driver’s license.

  • Tempe ‘A’ turns Navy blue

    It’s pretty customary for football fans visiting Tempe to scale up ‘A’ Mountain just west of Sun Devil Stadium with paint brushes and rollers in hand to turn the normally gold letter to their own school colors. It’s not customary for that to happen when there’s not a football game going on in Tempe. That […]
  • Cardinals offensive lineman calls out lazy football website

    Early Wednesday morning the website known as “ProFootballTalk” posted a story with the headline: “Adam Snyder would like to see Alex Smith in Arizona”.

  • ASU’s Jahii Carson salutes himself

    Arizona State frosh Jahii Carson is off to a fantastic start to his collegiate career. The point guard is averaging 17.9 points and 5.3 assists per game for the upstart Sun Devils, and needless to say he’s in conversation when folks discuss the country’s best freshmen. Carson, though, believes he’s not just good for a […]
  • Just call him ‘Samta Claus’

    It’s been a long, draining season for everyone involved with the Arizona Cardinals. Losing nine straight games after starting 4-0 will do that to a person. But not even chronic losing can dampen the spirit of Arizona linebacker Sam Acho, who is one of the nicest, most genuine pro athletes you’ll ever meet. Fox Sports […]
  • ‘Bama Grandpa’ gets a special Christmas gift

    Here’s hoping Santa delivered those of you who celebrate Christmas something special this holiday season.

And if the man’s reaction of pure joy doesn’t bring a smile to your face, well maybe you’re a Scrooge. Take a look:
  • Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl simulation bad news for ASU

    The folks over at Sports Gaming Universe are simulating all 35 bowl games this season. If their simulations are accurate, it’s bad news for Arizona State fans. The Sun Devils, who are preparing to take on Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl December 29 in San Francisco, were beaten by the Midshipmen 17-7 in […]
  • P.J. Tucker ruins Alvin Gentry’s suit during courtside run-in

    Talk about an expensive collision. During the second quarter of the Phoenix Suns’ win Wednesday night, PJ Tucker ran into Alvin Gentry courtside and damaged his head coach’s pricy suit in the process. The play made ESPN’s “Not Top 10 Plays” afterwards. On Friday, Gentry and Tucker talked to the media about the accident after […]
  • Yes, this guy is the best kicker in the history of the world

    Think of the best kicker you’ve ever seen. Soccer, football, fútbol — it doesn’t really matter what the sport, just think of the person. And now realize he’s nowhere near as good at kicking anything as Håvard Rugland, who is the guy in the video below kicking a football ever so awesomely.

    Kevin Towers: The sexiest GM in baseball

    The Oakland Athletics addressed their opening at shortstop by signing Japanese star Hiroyuki Nakajima, who was introduced in the Bay Area Wednesday. During the press conference, Nakajima said he was excited to play for Oakland because A’s GM Billy Beane “is extremely sexy and cool.” OK Yahoo! Sports took Nakajima’s comments to the next level, […]
  • Apparently ‘Kaepernicking’ is childspeak for ‘rapping poorly’

    Colin Kaepernick has taken the Bay Area by storm. The second-year pro from Nevada took over as the San Francisco 49ers’ starting quarterback in a Week 10 tie against the St. Louis Rams, and has led an already good team to four wins in its last five games. Kaepernick, 25, has thrown seven touchdown passes […]
  • Fifth grade basketball phenom starting for HS team

    If you pore over recruiting reports to find out who the best varsity basketball point guards in the country and where they’re headed to college, you won’t find the name Julian Newman on the list. Newman is averaging 12.4 points and 11 assists per game for tiny Downey Christian School in Orlando — certainly worthy […]
