Seven sports commercials that will never stop being funny

April 14 happens to be the birthday of the great Greg Maddux, which reminded me of two things: 1) Man, it was so much fun watching him pitch. 2) The "chicks dig the long ball" commercial was, is and will always be among the greatest commercials ever made. (Did I undersell that or no?) That led, of course, to pulling up the clip on YouTube. And that led, of course, to falling down...

Greg Maddux asked for umpire’s advice on pitch and it worked

We all know respected Major League pitchers who have been around the game for years are more apt to get the benefit of the doubt with borderline calls.

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...

Greg Maddux Makes Fart Joke During Hall Of Fame Induction Speech (Video)

After amassing over 3,300 career strikeouts, 355 wins and four Cy Young Awards, it’s fair to say that Greg Maddux was on fire many times throughout his baseball career.

When thanking his brother, Mike, Maddux made a joke about how his older brother...

Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony belongs to Braves

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- "Chicks dig the long ball," Greg Maddux told Tom Glavine before their Bash Brothers forearm bang in the incomparable 1994 Nike ad, as arguably the most accomplished pitching duo of the decade tried -- in jest -- to fit into an era of prodigious home-run hitters. But Glavine and Maddux's greatness was in how they defied the period in which they played, the mild...
