  • 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.

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 […]

  • 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.

  • 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, […]
  • Terrell Suggs: Television sweetheart

    Last year’s NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Terrell Suggs hasn’t made an impact on the field this year for the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ohio State University Marching Band, which is known as […]
