Colby Lewis Acts Like He’s Five, Accuses Baseball Player Of Trying To Raise His Batting Average

The Texas Rangers are in the middle of a bit of a rough patch — they’re 39-59 and are in last place in the AL West. Yup, they’re worse than the Houston Astros. On Saturday, frustrations seemed to boil over for Colby Lewis. Facing Colby Rasmus at the plate, the Rangers were playing in a shift, meaning most of the left side of the infield was open for Rasmus. Seeing this, Rasmus...

Weezer Release “Back To the Shack” Off Upcoming Album

So, like most people, I love Weezer.  The Blue Album and Pinkerton were pretty much the only albums I listened to during high school.  Those are without a doubt, their two best albums.  Then came The Green Album and Maladroit, they weren’t bad they just weren’t as good as their first two.  After Maladroit it gets a little hazy and kind of strange, like, collaborations...

The Worst Walk-Off Hit You’ll Ever See

With the scored knotted at two in the bottom of the ninth inning on Sunday, Brian McCann found himself at the plate with a chance to break the tie and give the Yankees the series sweep over the Reds.

Rory McIlroy Pounded Some Jägermeister Out of the Claret Jug

Rory McIlroy won the Open Championship this weekend and was awarded the Claret Jug as is customary. Usually golfers will take a drink out of the cup, not unlike Sir Stanley’s Cup, and Rory did the same. However, the unusual part of Rory is the fact that he tossed some Jäger into the Jug and drank it. Then again, given the fact that he is only 25 years old, I guess it makes...

The Final Day of Surfing At the J-Bay Open Was As Good As It Gets

The ASP tour returned to Jeffreys Bay this year in South Africa, and the event was easily the best of the year thus far (highlighted by a firing last day). Mick Fanning emerged victorious, but the waves were large, great conditions, and near perfect which made for easy viewing. As a terrible surfer (even though I love it), I stayed up to watch the event which was live-streamed...

Speed Golf is the Most Incredible Sport in the World

Speed golf is not a new sport, but it remains a little-known concept that draws scoffs from many traditional purist golfers. The concept is simple: playing 18 holes of golf as fast as possible. The sport is thought to have originated 35 years ago after middle distance runner Steve Scott ran a golf course in 29 minutes, 30 seconds while shooting a 95 with only a 3-iron.  This remarkable...
