  • Sun Devils let you choose their uniforms

    The Arizona State Sun Devil football team has a bevy of uniform combinations to choose from each game, though some looks are more popular than others. Now, though, if you don’t like what the team is wearing you’ll need only to look in the mirror for the party responsible for the fashion travesty. Fans have […]
  • Ryan Tannehill doesn’t know much about NFL

    OK, it’s not Arizona-related, but this was too good to pass up. In the excellent HBO show “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins”, we’ve gotten to know certain things about the team. We’ve learned that when Chad Johnson tells coaches that he’s going to get arrested during the team’s time off, he’ll get […]
  • Arizona Cardinals — sharply dressed men

    There aren’t many national publications predicting good things for the 2012 Arizona Cardinals. We’ll spare you the gloom and doom. But just in time for football season, the fine folks over at Esquire Magazine have released their list of the 15 Best Dressed Players in the National Football League, and not one, but two Cardinals […]
  • Sun Devils looking sharper this season

    Last year at about this time, everyone was buzzing about the Arizona State Sun Devils’ new look on the field. Four different helmets, three jerseys, endless combinations. This fall, ASU’s footballers are sporting another new look — but this one will be prominently featured off the field. The Devils will stroll as a team to […]
  • Dallas Cowboys owner Jones raps about pizza

    For the better part of a decade Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones represented everything Cardinals fans hated. His teams were successful and his fans packed Sun Devil Stadium. Meanwhile Bill Bidwill, who owned the Cardinals, continually fielded teams that finished near the bottom of the NFC East. Well, while this certainly won’t erase the pain […]
  • Do PHX teams just have ugly uniforms?

    We told you a couple of days ago about Uni-Watch.com’s Paul Lukas and his master list ranking the uniforms of all 122 major league franchises in North America. Lukas basically hates the Arizona Cardinals’ unis — they came in ranked 114th, and fourth-ugliest among NFL squads. Well, it turns out Lukas isn’t that fond of […]
  • Jim Joyce: Umpire by day, life-saver by night

    Baseball fans may know the name Jim Joyce, though likely not for anything good. An umpire, Joyce is most famous for botching the call that cost then-Tiger Armando Galarraga a perfect game, as he ruled a runner who was clearly out safe at first base. Joyce owned up to the mistake and surely felt worse […]
  • In a battle of artists, Arizona’s Foles tops ASU’s Osweiler

    We understand that both Brock Osweiler and Nick Foles were drafted because of how they throw a football with their right arms, not how they hold a marker. And it’s a good thing, too. The quarterbacks, as part of a promotion by the Panini Cards Company, each drew their own football card. While neither would […]
  • Cardinals uniforms panned by Uni-Watch

    If you’re a fan of sports fashion, and you haven’t read the blog Uni-Watch.com by Paul Lukas, you’re missing out. Lukas has launched a new project on the site in which he’s ranking the uniforms of all 122 professional teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball. Earlier this week, Lukas released numbers […]
  • ASU forging “Fork Invasion”

    You can’t drive around metro Phoenix without seeing University of Arizona billboards proclaiming the Valley is “Wildcat Country”. U of A held their spring football scrimmage at Glendale Community College, attempting to broaden their fan reach in the Valley. It’s a smart move, but it also ruffled some feathers of Arizona State faithful who believe […]
  • Everything must go at Beasley estate sale

    It’s something that most fans don’t think about, but professional athletes move a lot. Definitely more often than the average individual. Take Suns forward Michael Beasley, for example. Beasley is about to enter his fifth year in the NBA and already is on his third NBA city. If you consider that Beasley only played one […]
  • Former D-Back Kelly Johnson struggles with the lights

    Kelly Johnson was a solid player in just more than one season with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Signed as a free agent prior to the 2010 season, Johnson batted .284 with 26 home runs his first year with the team before slumping to .209 with 18 home runs in 2011. He was traded to the Blue […]
  • James Harden, always ready

    First he wins a gold medal. Then, it’s an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon alongside teammate Kevin Durant. Now, it’s James Harden, national pitchman. The former Arizona State Sun Devil appears in a national spot for Foot Locker with Oklahoma City and Team USA teammate Russell Westbrook that shows just how prepared Harden […]
  • Harden and Durant channel inner McKayla Maroney

    You all know McKayla Maroney and the now world-famous McKayla is not impressed blog, right? It basically features a recurring photo of the U.S. gymnast appearing to be “not impressed” by some of the world’s most famous happenings. It’s pretty funny. Former Arizona State Sun Devil James Harden and his OKC teammate Kevin Durant, who […]
  • Worst play in baseball history? You decide (it is)

    Sports blooper reels exist for a reason. Our athletes, many of whom are the best our species has to offer for their particular sport, make even the most difficult of plays look easy at times. However, every now and then what should be an easy play is made to look difficult, and from that point […]
  • Nationals make 50 Shades of Grey even more awkward

    The Washington Nationals came into Chase Field and took two of three games from the Arizona Diamondbacks, reaffirming their position as one of baseball’s best teams. The team’s pitching staff is a big reason why, and maybe — just maybe — the secret to their success involves shades of grey. Fifty of them, to be […]
  • Phoenix Mayor breaks nose at Merc practice

    Don’t tell Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton that they don’t play tough basketball in the WNBA. Stanton, who took over the office after winning the runoff election last November, was practicing Monday at US Airways Center with the Phoenix Mercury, and came away from the action with a broken nose. Stanton went up for a rebound […]
  • 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 […]
