  • Trevor Bauer responds to Miguel Montero via bad song

    Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero said former teammate Trevor Bauer “never wanted to listen.” Bauer, who was traded to the Cleveland Indians during the offseason, responded to his former catcher’s comments…in song.

  • Will Ferrell, Staples Center Security Guard

    No, the above title is not the title of a new Will Ferrell movie coming soon to a theater near you. Although, let’s face it, if it was, we’d probably go see it — unless it was all in Spanish and had subtitles. Seriously, how much did Casa de mi Padre gross? Like $11? Bad […]

  • HS girl hits full-court shot thanks to a fortituous bounce

    Anna Olsen of Lewis-Palmer High School in Colorado thought she was beating the buzzer when she threw up a full-court heave Friday night against nearby Cheyenne Mountain.

  • Golden State Warriors to wear shirts for jerseys

    The Golden State Warriors are nothing if not revolutionary. And historically mediocre. But mostly revolutionary. Yeah, for the sake of this story we’re going to roll with revolutionary.

  • Hockey broadcaster takes puck to the face

    Being a sideline reporter can be dangerous. In football, there’s a chance you would get run over. In basketball, there’s a chance a tall player might trip over you.

  • NHL goalie needs to work on pad placement — and fast

    Any guy who has played sports has probably suffered through it at least once or twice. It’s not fun, and it never gets easier. Carey Price, a goalie for the Montreal Canadiens, took a puck to an area no man should ever take take a puck at. And the fact that it came off the […]
  • D-backs getting into reality television

  • Caltech baseball snaps incredible 228-game losing streak

    It’s safe to say Caltech University (Pasadena, Calif.) — a school full of engineers, rocket scientists and economists — isn’t exactly a world-beater when it comes to collegiate athletics.
