20 stunts only Tom Cruise can pull off in movies

Slap Shot inspiration John Brophy wanted to take reporter’s “bleeping head off”

Long-time hockey player and coach John Brophy, who spent most of his career in the hard-knocks minor leagues, set a record in the Eastern Hockey League with nearly 4,000 penalty minutes as a player, and was reportedly much of the inspiration for Paul Newman’s character Reg Dunlop in Slap Shot, passed away Monday at the age of 83.

Rob Gronkowski set to launch ‘Gronk’s Hot Sauce’

In a near-perfect match of endorser and product, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is set to launch his own brand of hot sauce. Fittingly, it’s called Gronk’s Hot Sauce, a “12-ounce sauce made from cayenne and habanero peppers,” per a WCVB report. Given Gronkowski’s fiery personality and the spiciness inherent to a typical hot sauce, it’s a brilliant marketing combination...

Consider this: If the Yankees win next year, the Steinbrothers are screwed

A grand old trope of sports movies is the scheming, evil owner who secretly wants his/her team to lose. That's what makes the Cleveland Indians appealing in Major League. It's the real deal behind Paul Newman's sorry team in Slap Shot (greatest sports movie of all time, FWIW).Add the 2013 Yankees to this list.
