5 Most Legit Athletes in Movies

I saw Trainwreck this weekend and was shocked by an emaciated LeBron. Then I realized he was in the midst of his paleo phase, so I was able to focus on his shockingly good performance. And I don’t even like the guy! Even better was Amar’e Stoudemire, who I’m really happy for, because that dude needs a fallback plan once people realize he’s not that good at basketball. That...

Terribly Awesome Baseball Card: Jay Baller

If Jay Baller was not the inspiration behind the character Kenny Powers from HBO’s East Bound and Down, he may as well have been. He clearly had the look for Hollywood and the drama. After Baller’s washout ten-year professional baseball career as a right-handed pitcher, police found him in his car passing a loaded and cocked pistol from hand to hand. During the arrest, a search...

Friday Strut Off: Double J vs Ric Flair

What better way to head into the weekend than with a strut off between Double J Jeff Jarrett & Ric Flair.   Who’s got the better strut: Double J or the Nature Boy? Both have world-class struts that would have other strutters derelicking their balls. They both have flair (pun intended), and their pacing serves to heighten their flawless technique. The Nature Boy is the...

Jock Rock vs Jock Jams

As an aggressively mediocre high school athlete, one of my favorite pre-game rituals was listening to pump-up mixes the seniors made. Even more fun was when the infomercial for Jock Jams came on TV at 3:00 AM when I was probably watching some Saved by the Bell marathon. That got me thinking about pump-up albums, and I settled on two as the all-time best: Jock Jams and Jock Rock...

My father and I, Panthers season ticket holders, scored free tickets to the 2015 NHL Draft in South Florida. Estimated attendance for the first round was about 12,300, and...

Stupid LeBron And His Letter

The NBA Draft is tonight and for a second this Andrew Wiggins Cavs jersey looked like it was gonna be hotter than Abigail Ratchford’s Instagram account. Then LeBron turned into the GM of the Cavs, Wiggins got traded, and the rest is history. I’m a huge fan of this Andrew Wiggins Cavs jersey because of what could become of Andrew Wiggins NBA career. He’ll surely be an All-Star...

5 Weirdest Batting Stances in MLB History

One of my personal sayings is, “You can tell a lot about people from their Chipotle orders.” Brown rice and veggies? Health nut. Double steak burrito? Bro. Salad with no meat? Weirdo. Similarly, you can tell a lot about a baseball player from his batting stance. Some are strong and structured, like Albert Pujols. Others have more moving parts, like Gary Sheffield. And then some...
