By now you have heard that Oklahoma City Thunder forward/NBA superstar/100% class act Kevin Durant donated $1 million to the to the Oklahoma tornado disaster relief fund. The Red Cross reported the extremely generous donation Tuesday. There are people out there saying that that is something that he should be doing because he’s made of money. For those scoring at home, Durant...
Ahh, those dreaded AT&T commercials. ”We want more. We want more.” ”Sand full of sugar.” ”Tape a cheetah to her back.” Fine, the last one is alright.
The Ball State baseball team put together a spoof of the ads in their effort to tout sophomore starting pitcher Josh Baker as an All-American. The MAC Pitcher of the Year threw 99 and 1/3 innings spanning...
The University of Michigan is officially obsessed with Ohio State. Wide receiver Bo Dever tweeted this Instagram photo Tuesday.
DON'T GO THERE
The recent feud between Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods went somewhere it shouldn't have, with Garcia making comments that were both offensive and racist.
MLB Fan Cave Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano spent some time on the streets of New York City with a 13-year old Yankees fan who is battling leukemia. Really cool gesture.

“He’s definitely the best. It’s not rocket science here. He’s the best. By far. Without a doubt. The absolute best.”
Former Pirates and Giants left fielder Barry Bonds gave Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera some high praise during a phone interview with USA Today Monday. I don’t think you will get an argument from anyone who has seen an inning...
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki loves himself some post game handshake lines. His teammates – not so much.
Olivia Munn is in the June/July 2013 issue of Esquire. There is such thing as Christmas in July (or May, since Esquire released the pictures now).
The Miami Heat are so confident that they’ll romp through the Eastern Conference that Dwyane Wade felt he had enough time to spend a night off with a high school chick at her prom. In a move that has become extremely too commonplace, a Miami teenager, Nicole Muxo, created a video asking the Heat guard to prom and posted it to YouTube.
Wade revealed Friday on his Twitter account...
Miguel Cabrera is a pretty good hitter. On the heels of his 4 for 4, three home run, five RBI night against the Texas Rangers, his current numbers (through 42 games) make his numbers from last year through the 42 games look ordinary.
At the time of this post (May 20, 11:30 EDT), Cabrera leads the American League (and Majors) in batting average with a .387 clip. Rays first...
For the majority of trick shot videos, you have to question whether they’re fake. This clip is definitely not fake and should definitely be considered for the best single basketball trick shot of all time. Incredible.
Your move, Kyle Singler.

It’s no secret. Cubs fans go to Wrigley Field for the beer and sun. If a baseball game breaks out, it’s an added bonus. During Sunday’s game against the Mets, Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood clobbered a home run that left the park. But, it wasn’t for a valiant effort by Joe Cubsfan. Watch in the video below as Joe tries to make a web gem of a catch while maintaining...
Isiah Thomas has accomplished a lot since his playing days as a “Bad Boy” expired in 1994. Aside from running several basketball programs (the Pacers, Knicks, Florida International), he graduated from the University of California at Berkeley Sunday with a Masters degree in Education. Isiah completed his undergraduate degree at Indiana University while with the Pistons.
Newsflash: Professional athletes are handsomely compensated. Many men (and some women) are making many many dollars playing games meant for kids, old people (golf and tennis) and big lugs (boxing). Some deserve it, others don’t. Some are paid more for what they have done (ARod, Jeter) than what they’re going to do (Durant, King Felix).
Either way, it’s interesting to...
Getty Images BREAKING NEWS…AH HEM…TIGER WOODS IS NOT A NICE PERSON. Rocco Mediate always comes off as one of the nicest, most genuine guys in golf. David Feherty recently had a sitdown on his Golf Channel show “Feherty” with Rocco to discuss a myriad of topics including the 2008 U.S. Open. Mediate had Tiger on the ropes at Torrey Pines five years ago, a course that Tiger...
JUUUUST A BIT OUTSIDE
MLB.com Red Sox starting pitcher Felix Doubront may have been trying to come inside on the Rays’ Luke Scott. He may have been trying one of those wacky trick pitches that the old-timers whipped out in the black and white blooper reels. Or…or the ball just slipped out of his hands. NESN play-by-play man Don Orsillo called it “not something you see every day.” I wonder...
When you can’t beat him (Cabrera was 3 for 9 lifetime off Darvish), throw it like a dad would to his ten-year old son.
Another day, another Titus Young story.
He’s like that hacking cough that someone in your office has had for weeks. This time, somebody is finally asking him to go away.
Young’s ex-girlfriend is seeking a restraining order against him last week saying that he threatened and harassed her at her Moreno Valley (CA) home. She called police because Young would repeatedly wait...
Ian Kinsler went from first to third on an Elvis Andrus single Thursday night against the Tigers and he certainly got his money’s worth. One has to admire Kinsler’s hustle. And pigs have to admire Kinsler’s desire to play in the dirt. The Russian judge gave him a 7.5.
In what ended up being a never-ending “Are we there yet?” type exchange with the chair umpire, Viktor Troicki delivered one of the better rants of 2013.
During a match against Ernests Gulbis in the Rome Open earlier this week, Troicki hit a backhand that appeared to nip some of the baseline. The shot was ruled “in” by the line judge, but then overturned by the chair...
Don’t mind Muneori Kawasaki. He’s just preparing for a baseball game the way that any Major League player prepares. Right?
1. The smoothest mechanical bull ride ever. Solid form.
2. He’s still working on his Vanna White. It needs serious work.
3. Like the annoying little twerp in the AT&T commercial: “I can stand on my head and...
YouTube Everything is bigger in Texas, or so they say. Well, one thing that is bigger is the high school baseball postseason tournament earlier this week. In the University Interscholastic League high school playoffs, Diboll High (TX) and Caldwell (TX) were tied one game to one in a best-of-three series. Caldwell was down to their final strike in the final inning of the third...
At the 12:15 point in the second period of Game 1 in the Red Wings/Blackhawks series, those paying attention (perhaps too much attention) heard a rather disturbing sound as play-by-play man Doc Emrick was taking us to the commercial.
Somebody was elated to be headed toward the commercial apparently and couldn’t contain himself. Was Emrick excited to give his voice a rest? Did...
I don’t know how to put this, but the Red Wings are kind of a big deal. 22 consecutive playoff appearances. On Sunday, they (as a seventh seed) took down a two-seed in Anaheim. They open the Western Conference semifinals tonight (Wednesday) against the top-seeded Blackhawks.
With every playoff appearance in recent years comes a playoff anthem. Whether you like hip...
In preparation for Wednesday’s Game 1 of the Red Wings/Blackhawks series, here is Niklas Kronwall absolutely Kronwalling the Blackhawks’ Marty Havlat back on September 19, 2009.
Good night, Marty.
