  • Youth coach trips opponent, gets jail sentence

    Remember your days as a youth athlete when coaches would mandate that you’d shake your opponents’ hands — win or lose?

  • Brent Musberger autographs photo of Katherine Webb

    Brent Musberger made a celebrity out of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend. You probably know her as “Katherine Webb”.

  • 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.

  • 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.
