Drew Brees talked DeflateGate and almost broke Conan’s set

Saints QB Drew Brees was on Conan O’Brien’s show to talk about, what else, DeflateGate.  Conan had Brees test two footballs to see if he could tell the difference between a properly inflated ball and one that was slightly deflated.  Of course, since Brees is one of the greatest QBs of all time, he could tell exactly how many PSI was in each football. The funny thing about...

Heads Up! Tiger Plays With Fans On TPC Scottsdale’s Famous 16th

Remember when Tiger Woods was a fresh-faced rookie with a serious sense of humor to go along with his soon-to-be legendary game? Well, not much has changed on that front.

Video: Watch every Kyrie Irving field goal from his 55-point night

If you missed Wednesday night’s Cavaliers game, I’m not sure why you would admit it. However, even for those who did watch Kyrie Irving take down the Portland Trailblazers with an NBA-best 55-point outing, putting all of (or most of) his shots in one compilation makes you realize just how incredible this night was. From the three-pointers off of a screen or taking Blazers big...

John Smoltz & His Hall-of-Fame Golf Game Is No Accident

During the 1990s, the Atlanta Braves dominated Major League Baseball thanks to three of the best pitchers ever to play the game — Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz. The big three struck fear into the hearts of the game’s best hitters for the better part of a decade. And when they weren’t doing that, they were golfing.  The golfing exploits of Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz...
