  • Arizona Cardinals get a midseason logo

    Remember when the Arizona Cardinals were 4-0? The team was the talk of the league, combining an elite defense with quality special teams play and an offense that did just enough to get the job done. That’s all in the past. Losers of five straight games, the Cardinals are not only fading out of the […]
  • She doesn’t play football like a girl

    If you believe what they said in the 1993 comedy The Sandlot, the worst insult a young boy can hurl toward another is “you play ball like a girl!” Suffice it to say nobody in The Gremlin League in Salt Lake City, Utah has ever used that line on 9-year-old Sam Gordon — and she […]
  • ASU women’s basketball tries the ‘Gangnam Style’

    It seems just about everyone and their mother has tried their hand at parodying the widely-popular “Gangnam Style” by Korean rapper Psy. You can now add the ASU women’s basketball team to that group this week. In all fairness to Charli Turner Thorne’s squad, they shouldn’t quit their day job — as student-athletes that is. […]
  • Every NBA fan in 2:30

    You may remember the videos we’ve posted earlier on The Haboob that featured every NFL fan in 90 seconds and every Pac-12 fan in 60 seconds. Well, the folks over The NOC are at it again — this time posting a video depicting every NBA fan in about 2:30. Check out the Suns offering at […]
  • Amar’e Stoudemire’s already bad week gets even worse

    Things have not gone particularly well for New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire. Entering his third season with the team, Stoudemire is currently shelved for an estimated 6-8 weeks following knee surgery, and his status as one of the league’s elite players has quickly faded since he left the Valley of the Sun for the […]
  • Quite possibly the worst uniforms ever

    OK, the crazily-designed uniform has gone too far. Seriously. Carol City High School in Miami will actually wear these monstrosities on a field in a game and attempt to keep a straight face. Follow @Vincemarotta
  • #RallyZito puts San Francisco Giants to shame

    Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to the #RallyZito. We’re sorry. It was brought to the Haboob Blog’s attention Wednesday that San Francisco Giants fans, in an effort to help pitcher Barry Zito not pitch like Barry Zito, started having some fun with a twitter hashtag. Along with the fun was the creation […]
  • Trevor Bauer gets political on Twitter

    It isn’t common for 21-year-old star athletes to voice their political opinions. Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Trevor Bauer isn’t common. During the Presidential debate Monday night, Bauer took to twitter and let his opinion on President Obama be known. Obama looked childish and petty tonight. I’m ashamed that he is commander in chief of this great […]
  • BizNasty: Prank victim

    Paul Bissonnette, aka BizNasty, of the Phoenix Coyotes is no stranger to pranks, but he’s usually the one pulling them off. That changed during the recent BioSteel camp in Aurora, Ontario when Bissonnette was a victim of a pretty good one. While checking into the camp, staff members stop Bissonnette and pretty much interrogate him […]
  • High school kicker should make Jay Feely feel bad

    Suddenly Jay Feely’s 61-yard field goal that tied the game against Buffalo last Sunday seems like a chip shot. Austin Rehkow, a sophomore kicker for Central Valley High School in Spokane, Washington, booted a 67-yard kick through the uprights to tie his team’s game with Shadle Park High School in the final seconds. Apparently it’s […]
  • Daryl Washington would like some payback on Jerome Simpson

    Jerome Simpson was not exactly a household name before his Bengals faced off against the Arizona Cardinals in a Week 16 matchup last season. He’s still not, as the 26-year-old has caught just four passes for 50 yards this season. Now a Viking, Simpson is best-known for a touchdown he scored his team’s 23-16 win […]
  • Sparky vs. Puddles: Mascot war reaches new heights (and new low)

    Fortunately this will soon be over. A while back, we at the Haboob Blog drew attention to the mascot battle between Sparky the Sun Devil and Puddles the Duck leading up to the Arizona State-Oregon game Thursday night in Tempe. Each school has been producing videos — some better than others — and Tuesday Oregon […]
  • Oregon responds (again) to Sparky’s concern

    A couple weeks ago, the Haboob Blog pointed out the ongoing mascot battle between Sparky the Sun Devil and Puddles the Duck leading up to the Arizona State-Oregon game Thursday night in Tempe. The whole “war” started when Puddles, in an Oregon-produced video, announced his intention to run for President of the United States. Folks […]
  • Steve Nash in Vegas? It’s a thought

    The artist formerly known as Ron Artest has an idea for new teammate Steve Nash. According to the Los Angeles Times, Metta World Peace is so impressed with Nash’s on-court abilities, he’d like to see the former Sun take his act to Sin City. “Nash should do a Vegas magic show,” the Lakers forward said. […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald crosses the aisle, brings Democrats and Republicans together

    Is there anything Larry Fitzgerald cannot do? He catches passes. He scores touchdowns. He makes Cardinals fans think they are actually going to win the Super Bowl (damn you, Santonio Holmes). And now, he’s brought Democrats and Republicans together. OK, sort of. Fitzgerald posted a photo Wednesday night that includes himself, Andre Roberts, Sam Acho, […]
