  • Pistons fan learns of trade the hard way (and on camera)

    Often times you’ll read a story about how a player learned he was traded. Sometimes the general manager or coach tells them, and sometimes they hear it from the media first. Either way, it can’t be easy to deal with. However, does anyone think of how the fans learn of the swap? What if, by […]
  • Second grade students edit NFL players’ tweets

    Let’s be honest, tweeting without typos or grammar issues can be a bit of a challenge.

  • James Harden’s new Foot Locker commercial is quite funny

    Oh James Harden, you slay us. The first-time All-Star and Houston Rockets guard has quickly become a bit of a cult hero among NBA fans, and not at all because of his epic beard.

  • Tasker thinks Norwood’s miss changed Bills fortunes

    From 1990 to 1993, the Buffalo Bills accomplished something that no other team ever had and no other team has done since — they went to four straight Super Bowls. Sure, they lost all four, but to win four AFC championships in a row is still very impressive. The first of the four losses came […]
  • Darnell Dockett goes alligator shopping

    Darnell Dockett is an interesting dude. The Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman has put together a successful nine-year career in the desert, accumulating 36 sacks to go along with 413 tackles.

  • ASU’s Carrick Felix puts an end to a bush league play

    The phrase is probably said too often, but during ASU’s 78-60 rout of UCLA Saturday afternoon, the Sun Devils quite literally played all 40 minutes. While ASU tried to dribble out of the clock in the waning seconds of its convincing victory, UCLA freshman Jordan Adams had other ideas. The Bruins’ highly-touted guard knocked the […]

    The Providence men’s basketball team had plenty of trouble in Big East play before it made a trip to the BMO Harris Bradley Center to take on Marquette Saturday afternoon.

  • The early favorite for NHL Celebration of the Year

    Don’t tell 19-year-old Nail Yakupov that it’s only the first week of the NHL season. The first overall pick in the 2012 draft has had quite a debut for the Edmonton Oilers. After scoring his first career goal Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks, Yakupov did one better two nights later against the defending Stanley […]
  • The ‘Flying V’ is actually real!

    Anyone who has seen The Mighty Ducks is familiar with the awesomeness provided to us all by Gordon Bombay and his rag-tag bunch of hockey players. Except for Banksy, he was actually good.
