Dyer Pettijohn, a high schooler from Malibu, CA, came up with a semi-clever way of asking figure skater Gracie Gold to his prom.
The video has attracted the attention of Gracie, who tweeted out, “This melted my heart.” Whether she’s onboard or not, well done kid. Entertaining video.

U.S. snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg won the first gold medal of the Sochi Games. Amazingly, the Gold medal Kotsenburg captured was his first snowboarding win since his was 11-years-old. With Shaun White dropping out of the competition the week prior, the 20-year-old had to defeat favorites Max Parrot and Mark McMorris. Whether...
Jamal Crawford was asked at halftime of the Clippers- Thunders game on Sunday, to name all the coaches he has played for in the NBA. At first Crawford hesitated but then impressively rattled off all 17 of these names:
Tim Floyd, Bill Cartwright, Bill Berry, Pete Myers, Scott Skiles, Lenny Wilkins, Herb Williams, Larry Brown, Isiah Thomas, Mike D’Antoni, Don Nelson, Mike Woodson...
NFL Network’s Warren Sapp provided some much needed entertainment for the NFL Combine viewers during Monday’s for defensive lineman and linebackers. First, Sapp presented us a perfect reaction face to Jadeveon Clowney’s ridiculous 40-yard-dash. Later in the event, Sapp then had a bit of slip-up while watching the drills:
“There’s something in the steroids… I mean, something...
The AAA Philadelphia Phillies affiliates, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs unveiled their new bacon themed uniforms for the upcoming season.

Let’s hope there are no vegetarians are the team. [Big...

Part of the Metrodome was demolished on Sunday, specifically the top “ring beam” around the stadium. I’m sure some Vikings fans are sad to see the stadium get demolished, but once they see the new stadium, they won’t miss it for a second.

There’s a reasons Jen Selter has amassed almost 2.5 million Instagram followers.

Take a look a the photo gallery.

Stanford head coach David Shaw wasn’t able to attend an offensive meeting because he was 2,300 miles away in Hawaii attending a Nike coaching event held by Phil Knight. With the help of a robot designed by a Stanford graduate, the 41-year-old who has led Stanford to three consecutive BCS berths, was still able to attend the meeting.

As impressive Texas A&M’s Johhny Manziel’s 40-yard-dash time was on Sunday (4.68), South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney took down Manziel in the sprint by .21 seconds. What a Freak!

South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney, the 6’6”, 250 lbs. freak defensive end, posted a faster 40-yard-dash time than Oregon’s De’Anthony Thomas at the NFL Combine on Monday morning. Clowney likely just sprinted back into No.1 pick territory for the Houston Texans with his 4.47 time.

During Sunday’s Michigan-Michigan State game, CBS had just come out of commercial break when they panned to a Michigan cheerleader, and for some reason they had an arrow on the Michigan cheerleader’s boob. Good job, good effort, CBS.

Kent State’s Dri Archer was just a hair off from breaking Chris Johnson’s All-Time NFL Combine record in the 40-yard-dash. The running-back posted a official time of 4.26, just 0.2 seconds off Johnson’s time of 4.24 at the 2008 Combine. Some NFL team is going to be very happy to have this type of speed on their team.

It’s safe to say that this is the most interesting story to ever come out of the NFL Combine and that it is highly unlikely to ever be topped. San Diego State running back Adam Muema was projected to go between the 4th and 7th rounds of the NFL Draft and was invited to the Combine. But when it came time to participate, Muema was nowhere to be found.

French golfer Victor Dubuisson was able to force a final day playoff against Jason Day at World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship at Dove Mountain in Arizona. Dubuisson made two unbelievably impossible chips to extend the Playoff two different times. After the second one, all Jason Day could do was shake his head.
Eventually Dubuisson’s magic ran out and Day...
After Canada clinched the Men’s Hockey Gold Medal against Sweden the celebration was on. Unfortunately for Jonathan Toews, his teammates bowled him over and knocked him into the net. That wasn’t the only eventful part of the celebration though. P.K. Subban filmed a video of their on ice celebration and it was interesting to say the least. Get ready for all of the Canadians who...
I’m not sure who all of the players are in each of these photos but these are some outstanding faces. Kudos to the guy in the third row who managed to crack a smile. That was either staged or he’s just that much more relaxed than everyone else.

Johnny Football unofficially clocked a 4.56 at the combine on Sunday in Indianapolis. The soon-to-be first round pick was shown by NFL Network running side-by-side with the 49ers Colin Kaepernick from his NFL combine in 2011. Manziel posted a 4.63 on his first attempt.
