Chiefs Fan Gets Tasered at Preseason Game (Video)

Apparently fans don’t care that we’re just in the preseason and that games don’t really matter at this point, as evidenced by this guy who was in midseason form at the Chiefs-Bengals game last night. Dude allegedly got drunk, seemingly got belligerent, then capped his night off by definitely getting tasered by Arrowhead security. The crowd yelling “Don’t tase me bro!...

Bama Fan Wheel of Fortune Troll Tee of Auburn is a Massive Fail (Photo)

The guy that made this shirt needs to sit the next couple of plays out in the ongoing troll war between Bama and Auburn. This fan had the right idea about his Wheel of Fortune troll shirt but just came up short on the execution. If you don’t get it, if the second U in ‘Auburn’ was filled in then they all would have been flipped over and the puzzle would be solved. I am sure...

UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman can’t just sit back and let Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier corner the market on pre-fight trash talk.

Shaq Used To Wrestle Suns Teammates Naked (Video)

Shaquille O’Neal has always been known as the ultimate prankster in NBA circles, but his jokes as player for the Phoenix Suns went to far in my opinion. Former Suns head coach Alvin Gentry told ESPN’s True Hoops about Shaq’s love for wrestling his Phoenix Suns teammates while in the nude. I find nothing funny about being playfully attacked by a naked 7-foot, 300-pound man.   h/t ESPN

If You Can’t Cheer For Ray Rice, How Can You Cheer For Brandon Marshall?

We have established all domestic violence is bad. Doesn’t matter if you are a man or woman, you shouldn’t be hitting anyone. But, something has been bothering me, and I really would like to know the answer to the questions that I have. This isn’t about Ray Rice and Brandon Marshall, this is about us and our selective memory on who we decide to cheer and who we decide to vilify...

Rockets Player Says Harden & Howard Won’t Eat With Teammates

The Beard and Dwight have made it clear that they see themselves as superstars, cornerstones or whatever adjective they can think of and everyone else on the team are just role players. That isn’t necessarily untrue, but one has to remember that roles players no matter how great the stars are play a big role (no pun intended) in the success of the team. Depending on how great of...

Bengals QB Pukes on Field Then Throws TD (Video)

I guess nerves were getting the best of QB Matt Scott during last night’s preseason game against Kansas City. The backup QB threw up quite a bit late in the game before tossing a TD pass. Hopefully this toughness helps him make the team. He could have been inspired by Willie Beamen. That gives new meaning to “puke and rally” right? [Brennan Warner]
