  • Hollywood ending for D-backs farm club

    You can watch baseball from now until the end of time, and we don’t care what level of the sport you watch, you’ll likely never see a ball game end like the one fans saw in Missoula, Montana Saturday night. The Osprey (the Rookie-level affiliate of the Diamondbacks) trailed the Billings Mustangs 9-0 after four […]
  • Cardinals in K.C. reminds of Boldin’s inaccurate throw

    The Cardinals facing the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason may not mean much to most people, but it does to us. Well, not really. What the game does, however, is remind us of a time not long ago when Big Red squared off with the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in a game that, quite […]
  • Grant Hill’s gone totally Hollywood

    First it was Steve Nash donning a new hairdo at his Los Angeles Lakers introductory press conference. Now, it’s another former Sun — Grant Hill — who is gravitating toward LaLa Land. Hill, who signed a free agent deal with the Clippers last month, made an appearance at Dodger Stadium where he threw out the […]
  • Former Cardinal DRC finally learns how to hit somebody

    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had a reputation for being an incapable unwilling tackler in Arizona, a trait that helped lead to him being traded prior to last season.

  • Just in case you thought HS football in AZ was big

    High school football in Arizona is steadily improving. Athletes from all over the state receive full-ride scholarships to powerhouse football programs all over the nation.

  • Olympic diver gets a zero

    It’s not often when watching the Olympics when the viewer has an “I could do that” moment. German diver Stephan Feck supplied one earlier this week when he botched a dive on the three-meter springboard and landed flat on his back. It’s not exactly Phoenix sports-related, but this is too good to pass up. Follow […]
  • Shannon Brown wants you to call him, maybe

    Shannon Brown is a music connoisseur of sorts, with an emphasis on “of sorts”. The Phoenix Sun, who is married to singer Monica, was on BET’s 106 & Park with his wife to discuss his career, their marriage and life in general. The 26-year-old, who was wearing a hat that said “THINK!” on the front […]
  • Archie Bradley, boot connoisseur

    If you were about to turn twenty years old, and money was no issue, what would you buy yourself for your birthday? That’s the situation Diamondbacks farmhand Archie Bradley finds himself in as he closes in on the end of his teenage years. And guess what the fire-balling right-hander bought for himself?

  • This isn’t going on the D-backs’ video yearbook

    Over the course of a 162-game season, you’re bound to see some strange things. One of those things happened Monday night in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 4-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. With nobody out in the bottom of the fourth inning, Pirates star outfielder Andrew McCutchen blooped a single in front of normally steady center […]
  • Grant Hill and Michelle Obama – BFFs?

    We admit we did a double take during the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics when FLOTUS (is that even a word?) Michelle Obama was captured by television cameras sitting next to former Phoenix Suns forward Grant Hill. But we shouldn’t have been surprised since apparently the duo are best friends forever — or at […]
