First Base Umpire Gets The Wool Pulled Over His Eyes, Makes Horrendous Call

This is one of the worst (and most hilarious) calls I have seen made by an umpire in a very long while. C.B. Bucknor was the first base umpire who got quite fooled by pitcher Cesar Jimenez (who was covering first base) who faked tagging baserunner Christian Yelich. C.B. just conveniently forgot that the ball had to actually be in the hand that touched the runner. We all make mistakes...

WATCH: Benches clear in Braves-Brewers game after home run

Carlos Gomez launched a home run off of Paul Maholm during the first inning of the Brewers and Braves game on Wednesday, and the stroll around the bases got a bit weird. Gomez hit the home run and it looked like he stared at it a bit too long for Braves’ catcher Brian McCann’s liking. The jawing continued as Gomez rounded the bases and eventually he came face to face with Brian...

Dude, Nice Try But You Don’t Bunt By Throwing The Bat At The Ball

Of course it was the Astros.  Short stop Jonathan Villar squared to bunt Tuesday against the Rangers by dropping the bat at the ball.  you heard the announcers, he was trying to “dead it.”  Apparently it’s something that’s been done before.  Oh wait!  Villar tried it and failed just over a month ago.  Keep at it, buddy, you’ll get there. Poor Villar, who is on his...

Hurdling Defenders Is Still Awesome, Still Illegal

The fun-killing ninnies at the National Federation of State High School Associations have a long-standing rule that penalizes super-athletic offensive players for hurdling over (almost-assuredly less-athletic) defenders. The NFSH cites player safety as the reason for keeping the rule on the books. Okay, fine, whatever. But, if you ask us, it’s totally worth the 15-yard penalty...

If You Try To Show Up Chris Paul, You’re Gonna Have A Bad Time

Chinese street baller “More Free” thought it would be a good idea to try and challenge Chris Paul, who is on an Asia tour, more or less begging him to sick him on defense.  Did that go how you expected, Mr. Free?  Paul not only owns the dude after he tries to cross him up, but then proceeds to cheese him all the way down the court for a bucket of his own.  Think again before...

The Walking Dead + Breaking Bad = Breaking Dead

AMC is so desperate to keep their two most valuable properties, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead that they’ve made spin-off shows for both series. With Breaking Bad ending this Sunday there might be one way to keep Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, cast them in a new zombie show called “Breaking Dead.” Think how easily they could write Gus Fring back into the show.

Amir Johnson Buys Out Two Stores Worth Of Drake’s New Album

Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson is apparently a pretty big fan of Canadian-born rapper Drake, who just released his new album Nothing Was The Same yesterday. Johnson celebrated the occasion by visiting a couple record stores (yup, those still exist) and purchasing every single copy of the album. Initially, it kind of seems like a douchey, selfish move by a guy with a lot of...
