Tiger Woods held his 15th annual Tiger Jam Charity Event this past weekend in Las Vegas. The event is a two-day golf and poker charity event with a few concerts mixed in. This year Kid Rock was the featured artist at the concert and Chris Paul showed up to play in the event as well, among other celebrities in attendance. You would think that Tiger Woods would have better fashion...
On Sunday during an Australian Ice Hockey League game between the Newcastle North Stars and the Melbourne Ice, linesman Casper Russelhuber was injured. Russelhuber was hit by two players (at the 0:53 second mark of the video) and ended up suffering a concussion on the play as well as a lacerated finger.
Stephen White, the announcer for ATC Productions, was then called upon to be...
AC Milan star Mario Balotell joined Twitter last week, and unless you are fluent in Italian, you won’t be able to understand a solid portion of his tweets. That being said, you still get gems like these where he reveals the fact that he has a pet pig. Having a pet pig seems like a pretty logical thing for Balotelli, especially given his history for theatrics.

San Diego Chargers 3rd round draft pick Keenan Allen has already done something pretty taboo and he hasn’t even been a part of the NFL for very long. The former California Golden Bears receiver sent out a video on Vine while he was wearing an Oakland Raiders a hat, an inner-division rival of the Chargers. If this had been pre-draft it wouldn’t have been a big deal, but since...
This shot that was made is completely and utterly ridiculous. According to the YouTube description, the shot was made from 63 feet away on a 10 foot hoop. To be able to shoot the ball only holding it between your knees and while doing a front flip is impressive enough, but to make a shot on a basketball hoop from 63 feet away is amazing.
At the Alabama Crimson Tide Celebrity Golf Tournament on Sunday, the Crimson Tide auctioned off the broken 2011 BCS Championship Crystal Ball Trophy. Last April, the trophy had been accidentally broken and it was reportedly valued at $30,000. On Sunday, the trophy was auctioned off for more than three times that much and went for a whopping $105,000. That’s an obscene amount...
Dallas Mavericks’ Shawn Marion took to the highway with his new ride, a Thoroughbred Stallion Trike. The base pricing for one of these tricycles in 2011 was $28,315, but something tells me there is nothing basic about Marion’s version.
Nothing better than a behind the scenes photo shoot of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Cheerleaders in Vieques Island, Puerto Rico, wouldn’t you say? At least the Jag fans will have one visual reason to attend EverBank field, because Blaine Gabbert is still the Jaguars quarterback.

Sign the kid up Chelsea! This is Fernando Torres stuff right here.
Even though the Detroit Tigers lost to the Texas Rangers, 11-8, Miguel Cabrera put on quite a show at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Cabrera finished 4-4 on the night (one intentional walk) and also hitting three long balls back-to-back-to-back.
It’s either Cabrera or Albert Pujols for the best hitter in our era. I’d have to side with Cabby.
Kansas City Chiefs speedster Jamaal Charles gives us a sneak peek into his life outside the lines. Charles, Brandon Flowers, and company look like they’re welcome guests at the friendly neighborhood Twin Peaks.
The talents also extend outside of football, as the running back can mix a beat or two.
During game three with the Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin crashed into the net while trying to create a scoring chance. In a rare occurrence, Malkin looked directly at the camera before exiting the net and gave us this beauty of a GIF.
Hov gives the best graduation presents.
Skylar Diggins, who was drafted 3rd overall to the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock and recently signed a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation, got the car as a surprise during Notre Dame graduation ceremony on Sunday.
Diggins posted on Instagram the following pic and wrote, “Got surprised with a new mercedes! Thanks so much to Jay and @rocknation, and @Dancyautogroup!”
With a game two victory in hand, the Boston Bruins were content to just let the clock run out but the New York Rangers wanted to send a message. Rangers forward Derek Dorsett was a pest all game, and finally found a dance partner in Gregory Campbell. Campbell is a tough customer but not nearly the same quality fighter that Dorsett is. I give Campbell credit for dropping the...
On Saturday night the Providence Bruins were unable to close out their Calder Cup AHL playoff series against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins as they lost 4-0 and the Penguins forced a game six. The Bruins refused to just take the loss quietly though and the brawl that ensued certainly set the stage for an interesting game six on Monday.
The Bruins and Penguins combined for 117...
New York Rangers coach John Tortorella lost his temper on referee Dan O’Halloran after the second period ended when a punch to captain Ryan Callahan’s head was not called. You can’t read Tortorella’s lips too well, but you can tell that it is an f-bomb laced tirade and he is clearly not asking O’Halloran to grab a beer with him after the game.
This incident during the 4th inning summed up Tim Lincecum’s outing against the Colorado Rockies. Lincecum’s back foot slips as he winds up for the pitch and he falls on his backside and was called for the balk. Lincecum ended up giving up six runs through five innings and the San Francisco Giants lost to the Rockies 10-2.
Tottenham’s Gareth Bale thought he deserved a penalty after going down in the penalty box during Sunday’s Premier League battle against Sunderland. Instead of awarding a penalty kick, the ref booked Bale was for diving. Yikes, tough break for the Spurs star.
Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert came away with the huge block on New York Knicks forward Carmello Anthony during the 4th quarter of Saturday night’s Game 6. Melo appeared to have the clear path to an easy slam after spinning on Paul George. However, the 7’2” Hibbert came over from his help position to stuff Melo, and give the Pacers momentum before the game’s final push, which...
Vitor Belfort was taking on Luke Rockhold in the UFC on FX 8 on Saturday night when Belfort rocked Rockhold with this kick to the head. Nothing like taking a heel to the side of the head to KO you from a fight.
The scariest part of that kick? That is Belfort’s 12th career 1st round KO. Impressive.
Official Call: Vitor Belfort def. Luke Rockhold via KO (spinning back kick...
With about five minutes to play in the second period of a 1-1 game, Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick showed off why he is one of the best goalies in the NHL. San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski came out of the corner with the puck and looked like he was going to tuck it short side when he dished off the puck to Andrew Desjardins. Quick was out of position and looked like...
It appears that playing with Niklas Kronwall rubbed off on Brad Stuart. The San Jose Sharks defenseman laid Los Angeles Kings forward Justin Williams with this Kronwall-esque hit late in the first period. Stuart timed the hit perfectly and Williams could do nothing by the time he looked up and realized what was coming for him.
After spending most of the year in the AHL and scoring 28 goals in 58 games with the Manchester Monarchs and winning AHL rookie of the year, Tyler Toffoli is finally getting his shot with the big club. Toffoli has only played five playoff games for the Los Angeles Kings so far, but he has been looking like a seasoned vet. After San Jose Sharks goalie Antti Niemi left the net...
This is the type of stuff that the NHL does very well. They took sound bites from the different playoff series from Round 1 of the Playoffs and put together a clean compilation of the best stuff. Personally, I’d love to hear the uncut version to hear what the players are saying to each other, but you get a great taste of what goes on during the game with this video.

The start to the 2013 Memorial Cup on Saturday was a rocky one. The US National Anthem prior to the Portland Winterhawks-Halifax Mooseheads game was an unmitigated disaster. If it weren’t for the fans helping her along, I don’t think she would have ever finished it. You know you’re doing a horrible job when you can see players starting to laugh at you and you are making...
