Wyoming Cowboys reveal ridiculous new football field plan

I have to say I like this a hell of a lot more than the different colored fields that teams keep creating.  There’s nothing out of the ordinary on the playing field, but the end zone design is crazy.  Definitely a unique touch to put on their stadium and it looks great.  You have to love the old school font for the end zones as well as the mountain ranges.  Here’s what their...

Ilya Bryzgalov ducks puck on USA goal at World Championships

Every year NHL players on teams that don’t make the playoffs fill out rosters for the IIHF World Championships, as well as players from other leagues in Europe.  With the Philadelphia Flyers missing the playoffs, goalie Ilya Bryzgalov went overseas to play for Russia and he is up to his old habits. On a shot from USA defenseman Matt Hunwick (Colorado Avalanche), the puck was deflected...

Dick Vitale is a big Justin Timberlake fan

  In response to a tweet Justin Timberlake sent out about upcoming presale’s for concert tickets, Dick Vitale sent this tweet out (which also must be read in Vitale’s voice).  I never pictured Dick Vitale to be much of a Justin Timberlake fan, always figured Dickie V for a Frank Sinatra guy.  This is one of those times that you can appreciate just how truly awesome Twitter is.

Pavel Datsyuk scores filthy game-tying goal

I can say that this goal was even prettier in person.  Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk crossed over Anaheim Ducks defenseman Lucas Sbisa to give himself the extra room to take the puck to the outside.  Then as he was streaking down the wing, fired a perfect shot, short-side high glove to tie the game.  The puck was in and out so quickly that the stadium was certain that...

Niklas Kronwall levels Kyle Palmieri with center ice hit

About 13 minutes into the first period of game four of the Anaheim Ducks-Detroit Red Wings 1st round playoff series, Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall was up to his old tricks.  Kronwall caught Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri with his head down in the neutral zone and “Kronwalled” him.  The hit was a 100% legal hit and no penalty was called.  Kronwall does a great job of leading...

On Monday, the Arizona Wildcats football program unveiled their new football uniforms.  The helmets are the exact same as last year, but they have now added the copper helmet to their full-time rotation, which was only worn once last year against Oregon State. Overall the new uniforms looks great.  The numbers fading from red to blue and blue to red in the different uniforms is...

Jean-Gabriel Pageau loses tooth, hands it to backup goalie, scores hattrick

The Ottawa Senators-Montreal Canadiens playoff series has been the most intriguing series and it all started with Eric Gryba crushing Lars Eller and continued with Brandon Prust calling Ottawa’s head coach Paul MacLean a “bug-eyed fat walrus.” A new trend has started in this series, a player has lost a tooth in every single game and the team with the player that loses the...

Canadiens, Senators brawl during Game 3

The Montreal Canadiens-Ottawa Senators rivalry has been growing by the second ever since Eric Gryba lit up Lars Eller.  After the Senators managed to gain a 5-1 lead, the Canadiens let their frustrations get the better of them in game three.  Unfortunately for them when they started this line brawl they figured they would win, but they thought wrong.  The Senators dusted them...

CLUTCH SHOT

Jason Zucker wins it for the Wild

After blowing a 2-1 lead late in the third period, the Minnesota Wild were back on their heels at the start of overtime.  But, Wild forward Matt Cullen made an awesome play from his stomach to not only keep control of the puck but to get it to Jason Zucker.  Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was down early and that gave Zucker some room up top to shoot.  Despite his horrible...

Justin Abdelkader ejected for hit on Toni Lydman

The Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader was ejected for this hit on Anaheim Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman during the second period of game three.  It was a close-checking tie game and this hit seemed to change the whole series in favor of the Ducks.  Lydman was knocked out of the game with a possible concussion and Abdelkader was given a five-minute major for charging and...

Floyd Mayweather walks into the ring with Lil’ Wayne

The last time Floyd Mayweather fought, he entered the ring with Justin Bieber and 50 Cent by his side.  This time when he went to fight Robert Guerrero, Mayweather was joined by Lil’ Wayne who rapped his song “No Worries” as they went to the stage.  The song was appropriate since Mayweather clearly had no worries during his fight with Guerrero, as he went on and methodically...

James van Riemsdyk scores filthy goal to clinch win over Boston Bruins

With three minutes left in the third period, the Toronto Maple Leafs lead had dwindled to just one goal.  Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski set up James van Riemsdyk all alone in front of the net, but JVR didn’t have much room to make a play.  Which worked out just fine because it turns out he didn’t need much.  With his back facing the net, JVR pulled the puck around...

Kyle Okposo scores game-winning goal off Marc-Andre Fleury’s back

The Pittsburgh Penguins saw their commanding game two lead dwindle down to a 3-3 tie with the New York Islanders in the third period.  With just under eight minutes to play, Islanders forward Kyle Okposo threw a shot at the net that went wide.  It hit off the back wall, bounced out front and hit Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in the back and trickled into the net.  The Islanders...

THE DENTIST

Carey Price pulls out tooth, gives it to trainer

It take a lot to knock an NHL player out of the game and losing a tooth is not enough to do it.  Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price lost a tooth, presumably during a collision with his own defenseman Jarred Tinordi.  Price yanked the tooth out during a whistle, skated over to the trainer to drop it off for safe keeping and then returned to his net to keep playing.  Oddly enough...

Rene Bourque scores filthy backhand goal

This is one of the best shots you will ever see.  Montreal  Canadiens forward Rene Bourque was given a pass from PK Subban and he had plenty of space behind the net to make a move.  Bourque stepped out front of the net and took a backhand shot from a brutal angle just over the goal line and it was a beauty.  This puck had nowhere else to go but short-side top shelf and Bourque...

PK Subban levels Chris Neil at center ice

Early in the second period, Montreal Canadiens defenseman PK Subban leveled Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil.  Neil is known as a tough guy who doesn’t get laid out often, but on this one he yardsaled.  You could argue that this was a bit of a questionable hit since Subban left his feet, but the referees probably couldn’t tell is if he left his feet because of the momentum...

Brandon Prust calls Senators coach Paul MacLean a “bug-eyed fat walrus”

After a vicious hit by Eric Gryba on Lars Eller, the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators normally docile rivalry has escalated.  Gryba earned a two game suspension for the hit, and Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said that Gryba shouldn’t be blamed, that Canadiens defenseman Raphael Diaz should be blamed for a bad suicide pass.  Canadiens forward Brandon Prust didn’t...

A BLOODY MESS

Lars Eller destroyed by Eric Gryba cheap shot

The Montreal Canadiens-Ottawa Senators series has gotten chippy early in game one and Senators defenseman Eric Gryba took it to a whole other level during the second period.  Canadiens forward Lars Eller got caught looking for a pass by his defenseman, and it was a total suicide pass.  Eller was looking back and as he looked forward, Gryba threw a massive shoulder/elbow right to...

Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference threw a flying elbow at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski during the first period of game one.  Grabovski was focused on getting to the puck and when Ference got there first, he played the puck and then threw his elbow at Grabovski’s face.  Ference will be facing a hearing for the hit and could be suspended for game two of the...

James Van Riemsdyk pokes Brad Marchand in crotch with stick

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand is great at getting under opponents skin and it seems that Toronto Maple Leafs forward James Van Riemsdyk wanted to get back at him .  JVR did a great job subtly butt ending Marchand in the crotch, which caused Marchand to take a baseball swing in retaliation.  Too bad for JVR, the Bruins destroyed the Leafs and this series could be over in a...

Kris Letang crushes John Tavares during Penguins win

In a race for the puck during the second period, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang knew he was going to be hit and decided to initiate contact first.  Letang absolutely leveled New York Islanders forward John Tavares with this hit using his back, sending him almost parallel with the ice.  I think that Letang’s hit was a bit questionable, especially since neither of them...

During game one of the Vancouver Canucks-San Jose Sharks playoff series Canucks forward Andrew Ebbett chipped a puck in deep from the neutral zone when Sharks forward James Sheppard came in and hit him into the Sharks bench.  Sheppard added insult to injury by trying to flip him completely into the bench and sort of hold him there, which Ebbett took exception to and a scrum ensued...
