  • 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 […]
  • Arizona Wildcats basketball gets in holiday spirit

    The Arizona Wildcats men’s basketball team is playing well these days. They’re 9-0 on the season and ranked in the top five of both the AP Poll and USA Today Coaches Poll. So maybe it should come as little surprise they are in a jolly mood, though the fact that the players are happy enough […]
  • Carolina fans: Loyal and rabid, but not grammatically correct

    The Carolina Panthers played (and destroyed) the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium this past Sunday by the score of 31-7. San Diego fans are notoriously gracious when it comes to leaving open seats (or more accurately, sections) to opposing fans, so some loyal Carolina fans made the cross-country trek to San Diego to root […]
  • Church says ‘we told you so’ about Cardinals

    West Greenway Bible Church in Phoenix made national and local headlines last week when they posted on its marquee the following: No on is beyond God’s help — not even the Cardinals! Luke 18:27 Of course the Cardinals were fresh off an embarrassing 58-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, so the church was having a […]
  • Danny Amendola’s TD celebration goes terribly wrong

    Few things went right for the St. Louis Rams in Week 15. And even when they did go right against the Minnesota Vikings, trouble seemed to follow. For example, take Danny Amendola’s six-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. After Amendola reached the end zone to cut the deficit to 19, he went for the […]
  • The 4th Annual Fictional Bowl Games for College Football’s Also-rans

    It’s December, and for those of you who like to avoid the holiday season, there’s a conveniently-scheduled distraction just for you: college football bowl season. As I write this, 70 of the nation’s finest college football teams (ah, who am I kidding, there’s plenty of mediocre ones in there, too) — 70 of the nation’s […]
  • Suddenly Cardinals’ loss to Seahawks doesn’t seem so bad

    Apparently a 58-0 loss like the one the Arizona Cardinals suffered to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday was not the worst a team could do. A report on talks about a high school girl’s basketball game that ended with a score even more lopsided than the one at Century Link Field. 107-2. As the story […]
  • Ten-year-old dances with NFL cheerleaders

    Think this kid is the most popular in his class? We’d be willing to bet he is. Ten-year-old Christian Bottger got a chance to perform with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past week, and quite frankly, nailed his peformance of “Gangnam Style” and “Teach Me How to Dougie.” Follow @Vincemarotta
  • Kevin Towers’ Wikipedia page takes a beating

    The beauty of Wikipedia is that its users are the ones who provide the content. It’s also an excellent resource for college students who are too lazy to go to a library. Not like that was any of us or anything. Anyway, the encyclopedia-like site is constantly updated, as anyone can edit or make changes. […]
  • Jay Leno pokes fun at Arizona Cardinals

    Have the Arizona Cardinals gotten so bad it’s funny? Maybe, though it helps if you’re not actually a fan of the team. Because if you don’t care about how they do, well, a 58-0 defeat is certainly worth a chuckle or two. That must be what Tonight Show host Jay Leno thought, as part of […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald’s struggles put to music

    Larry Fitzgerald saw 11 targets in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He made one catch. The defensive back covering him, Richard Sherman, caught two passes. That’s really all you need to know about how things went for Arizona’s best player, and while Valley residents have felt bad for the receiver for quite a while, […]
  • Donald Trump wishes New England head coach ‘Bob’ Belichick good luck on Twitter

    What would the Twitterverse do without Donald Trump? On Monday, the business mogul tweeted well-wishes to the New England Patriots before their Monday Night Football game against the Houston Texans. Unfortunately for Trump, he botched Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick’s name in his tweet. The tweet was eventually deleted, but was left up on Trump’s […]
  • Caroline Wozniacki impersonates Serena Williams

    Caroline Wozniacki is a former No. 1 player on the WTA tour. Despite her former ranking, the 22-year-old has yet to win a Grand Slam title. So if you can’t be the best, might as well impersonate the best. That’s what Wozniacki attempted to do during an exhibition match in Brazil Sunday. Trying to get […]

    The NBA celebrated a milestone over the weekend, as the league’s YouTube channel officially reached the one billion views mark.
