  • Josh Collmenter makes circus catch vs. Marlins

    The Arizona Diamondbacks couldn’t complete their three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins Sunday, falling 2-1 in South Florida. But during the course of the game, the team produced one of the best catches in baseball this season. Leading off the eighth inning, Adeiny Hechavarria tried to bunt against D-backs reliever Josh Collmenter. The Marlins’ shortstop […]
  • Canadian singer struggles with US anthem

    Unlike Carl Lewis and Roseanne Barr, Canadian singer Alexis Normand has a beautiful voice. Unfortunately, Normand still managed to secure a spot alongside the infamous duo on the all-time list of worst anthem singers. Before the 2013 Memorial Cup junior hockey championships between the Halifax Mooseheads and Portland Winterhawks Saturday in Saskatchewan, Normand came on […]
  • This putt is better than any putt you’ve ever made

    Logan Fondren is the custom club manager at Calloway Golf. He’s also, apparently, quite a golfer. Imagine that. In a video, Fondren is seen sinking a putt that would make the old McDonald’s commercials featuring Larry Bird and Michael Jordan proud. “Off the stairs, around the glass barrier, down more stairs, nothing but cup.” It […]
  • Indoor football coach tackles player?

    Over the years, we’ve seen some amazing things in Arena Football and its offshoot leagues. Heck, we’ve seen a buffalo nearly trample a player — and that happened right here in Phoenix. But I don’t think we’ve ever seen this. R.J. Rollins of the Omaha Beef in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League (the same […]
  • Johnny Manziel throws out first pitch in very Johnny Manziel way

    Johnny Manziel is just like any other 20-year-old college student, except for the fact that he is the quarterback at Texas A&M and a Heisman Trophy winner. Manziel has spent the offseason seemingly enjoying his status, and while some may not appreciate how much fun he’s having, we at the Haboob Blog don’t mind. He’s […]
  • Ian Kinsler delivers the worst slide of the MLB season

    Earlier this week, we treated you to Manny Ramirez’s “slide” into second base that came up a tad bit short in a Chinese Professional Baseball League game. Well, apparently the art of sliding has universally gone out of style. Thursday night in a game against the Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler attempted […]
  • Screaming arm wrestler gains fame for screaming ability

    Have you ever been to an arm wrestling competition? If so, was it a women’s competition? Whatever, that’s not important. What is important is the fact that a Georgian competitor whose name we do not know was locked in a battle with a Ukrainian competitor at the European Women’s Arm Wrestling Championships in Lithuania, with […]
  • Blazers owner makes way too much money by selling highly mediocre painting

    OK, we understand that art is a very subjective thing. As the saying goes, “one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure,” and that is indeed the case. But still, there has to be some reason certain pieces of artwork are valued and others not. Right? Wrong. As reported by, Portland Trail Blazers owner […]
  • Nike to release new Charles Barkley shoe

    It is not uncommon for professional basketball players to be given their own shoe by companies like Nike, Reebok and Adidas. And for some players, like Michael Jordan, their line continues long after they’ve retired from the game. Apparently Charles Barkley has a similar deal. Nike is releasing the Chuckposite Barkley Posite, and the shoes […]
  • Show cancellation doesn’t stop Chandler Bing from supporting Kings

    Here’s what we know about actor Matthew Perry: He played Chandler Bing on Friends, one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. He is a big hockey fan. And his latest sitcom, Go On, was recently cancelled by NBC after just one season. That didn’t dampen Perry’s enthusiasm for the Los Angeles Kings Western […]
  • Mark Cuban asks YOU to design team’s new uniforms

    Mark Cuban is one of the best owners in sports. He has no issue spending money in an effort to win, and he seems to ‘get it’ with regards to fans. And yet, he’s found a way to be even cooler. Cuban and the Mavericks would like to have a new look in the 2015-16 […]
  • Manny Ramirez is not an expert slider

    Love him or hate him, Manny Ramirez will go down in baseball history as one of the best pure hitters to ever play the game. After a tremendous career in the Major Leagues, Manny has taken his talents to China, and apparently, those talents don’t include sliding. Check out the video below of Manny’s “slide” […]
  • Katherine Webb and trivia are not a good match

    Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, has made quite a name for herself since appearing throughout the 2013 BCS National Championship broadcast. The beautiful brunette starred on ABC’s reality TV show Splash, reported from Super Bowl Media Day and made an appearance in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition. And now we can add game show […]
  • Worst first pitch ever? Probably

    We’ve all seen a ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game. Usually thrown by a celebrity or someone affiliated with the home team in some way, every now and then a regular Joe Schmoe gets the chance to step on the mound and fire one to the plate. However, it’s not always a good pitch. […]
  • Yankees retired numbers said with great cuteness

    Seventeen different players have had their numbers retired by the New York Yankees. You could probably name a few of them, and we would all be impressed. However, we would not go “awwwwwww” like we do for the video below. Young CC is quizzed on the subject, and passes the test with great enthusiasm and […]
