Let's celebrate our favorite pot-smokin' athletes

 A recent ESPN article highlighted that as many as 40-60% of current and past Oregon Ducks football players have all smoked weed. As shocking (?) as is that someone would like to relax with bit of cannabis, we thought it would be fun to celebrate those athletes who smoked the gange, got caught but remain in the 4/20 Hall of Fame.  GuysGirl.com features various tools to help...

Dwight Howard done for the year

Dwight Howard will not finish the 2012 season in a Magic uniform.

Lullaby League: The 12 Hardest Swatters Of The Last Dozen Years

******* This Ring Magazine online... article suggests otherwise. However, likely the most spot-on idea in that piece is Joe Goossen's take on the failings of today's amateur boxing system, which slaps swollen pads onto guys' mitts and instructs referees to stop fights at the first sign of danger -- a system that tends to value good, quick-handed athletes rather than...

Givin' No Respect: Point The Finger At The Players, Not Shanahan

Every spring, I anxiously await the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I badger my ignorant friends who's televisions are fixated seemingly every sport except "the coolest game on Earth." I do my best to convert a few of them into bonafide hockey fans by the time that beautiful trophy is awarded in mid-June. [tonightshealthyscratches] This season though, in the first...

Is Matt Wieters The Best Catcher In Baseball?

Maybe*. If he keeps hitting .344/.462/.750, then I like his chances to take that crown (as well as the MVP award – and maybe the Cy Young). Once upon a time the Orioles were a respectable team and one that made the playoffs from time to time. Things have taken a turn for the worse but we're still here and we still believe. Get your fill on all things Orioles as we build it...

What the NHL is Dead Serious About

Player safety? No, silly. When a player gets his brains scrambled, the NHL gets a rivalry. Rivalries are easy to promote and things that are easy to promote bring in big bucks.

The final word on The Toronto series for 2011

I know the agreement is up next year, but this deal isn't going anywhere. I know some fans would love it to, but for the Bills to get almost double on their return for a home game, something will be worked out. Yes, it will probably be for a lower number than last time around, but I think this is the norm. Sure, it may change after Ralph Wilson dies, but as I've written before...

With C.B.A. Close, What To Expect From Heat?

Although the players have offered considerable concessions, Pat Riley should feel pretty good about the agreed-upon parameters of the collective bargaining agreement. The NBA won’t impose a hard salary cap, and the mid-level exception will start at $5 million. Here’s what to expect to happen when the lockout ends. Where the Heat Stand Now The Heat currently have eight players...

Lions call out Tim Tebow: Is it trash-talking when you speak the truth?

When did this become so horrible? Jared Allen pulls the same crap every week! Every QB is mocked after a sack. Who hasn't seen defender preen, pose, flex, point, stomp, dance, you name it, it's been done, over a downed QB? Showboating and trash-talking is commonplace in the NFL. Happens in every game of every week. But Tebow is supposed to be treated differently? Why...

Who is worth a top 10 pick this year?

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma StateBlackmon isn't quite on pace to match his 2010 season, but given that he caught 111 passes for 1,782 yards and 20 TDs in 2010 and isn't that far off the pace, it can be excused. Blackmon isn't huge or blazing fast, but he's not small or slow by any means. He runs good routes, has fantastic hands and uses what size he does have (6...

LSU vs Alabama - Inside The Numbers

Miles has defeated Alabama twice when coming off a bye week - 2007 and 2010. Saban has defeated LSU once when coming off a bye week and that was in 2009. The Tide and Tigers both rely on their defense to smother opponents into submission. They clamp down, especially in the 2nd quarter, and let their offense do damage. Alabama has outscored their opponents 176-15 in the second half...

Champs!

180 times this team took the field this calendar year. Up until about yesterday at 9:30p, I wasn't sure what this team actually was. I've been mad at this team; I've been sad for this team.

WVU shows Pitt, Syracuse how to leave Big East early

Right now, the Big East has a case. Its current expansion plans included WVU being in the league and if the Mountaineers aren't around then it leaves the Big East with just seven schools (that's assuming Syracuse and Pittsburgh don't leave early for the ACC). This figure also makes the assumption that every program that gets an offer from the Big East accepts.But this...
