Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte tweeted a picture Monday of his supposed 10,000 calorie meal. And, it wasn’t weird at all. I take that back. It was all kinds of weird. Back in 2008, fellow Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps’ monster caloric-intakes got crazy publicity. He ate 8,000-10,000 calories a day.
It appears Lochte is going for a massive amount of chicken, a tray of...
via YouTube Matthew Stafford has become a surgeon/pitchman for DISH Network and has earned a golf clap from our gallery. Promoting all of their college football coverage, Stafford works as a clueless surgeon with fiancee Kelly Hall as his nurse. It’s no “Cut that meat! Cut that meat!” from Peyton Manning, but Stafford does a nice job in this. He’s quickly becoming a pitchman...
Before Sunday’s game, Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler tried to posterize (look it up) Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He failed. Miserably. Instead of (pretend) dunking all over Salty and hanging on the rim, Koehler’s midsection went flying into Salty’s body and he went crashing to the dugout floor.
The Marlins had won four in a row and eight of their last ten...
The Lions and Ndamukong Suh will not be having any discussion relating to Suh’s expiring contract until after the offseason. After Suh put off megabucks extension talks all this offseason, the Lions are now the ones putting down the hammer. Suh admitted that it was indeed the Lions who tabled talks despite thoughts by many that this was another ploy by the three-time Pro Bowler...

Peyton Manning is as giddy as ever to start training camp in 2014. So giddy that he was dancing to “Rocky Top Tennessee” - the unofficial fight song of Manning’s alma mater – respresenting white guys everywhere.
Throwin’ touchdown passes and dancin’ his face off. So darn giddy. Wes Welker (83) tried to steal his thunder at the end, but he had way...
Sacramento Kings rookie Nik Stauskas enjoyed his first s’mores Wednesday. He’s 20 years old. Girlfriend Taylor Anderson tweeted out this picture as the two sat around the bonfire. He’s 20 years old. He’s Canadian, yes, but he’s 20 years old and had not had a s’mores before tonight.
Congratulations, Nick, you’re now more normal.
Despite the new $118 million dollar contract with the Heat, Chris Bosh has no use for a vacation home in the Pacific Palisades. He has put his shack up for sale, asking $14.5 million. 11,000 square feet, six bedrooms (that’s it?!), eight bathrooms, this place has resort-like features coming out the ying-yang.
The whole second floor of the house is considered the master bedroom...
Cardinals catcher Yadier Molinais out another six to ten weeks-ish with a torn thumb ligament, but his giving spirit is anything but damaged. During Wednesday’s game against the Rays, who happened to be starting Yadi’s brother Jose behind the plate, Yadier sent some peanut butter crackers via first base coach Jose Oquendo who dropped them off on his way out....
Sammy Watkins is easing into training camp with the pressure of costing the Bills two first round picks by making catches like this.
The rookie out of Clemson will likely have to make a lot more grabs like this to prevent the Bills from continuing their streak of playoff-less seasons. They haven’t been there since 1999 – the longest streak in the NFL.
That’s not bad.
Blackhawks’ $84-million dollar dude Patrick Kane messed around in a men’s league game in his hometown of Buffalo Monday night. He only tallied ten points in his team’s 13-5 win. The bars on Chippewa were dead so Kaner dropped in to play with the Piranhas Hockey Club in the Performax Hockey League.
Five goals, five assists, not a bad night. He was upstaged by...
The details surrounding this youth umpire and his gag-me-with-a-spoon strike out antics are sparse. But let’s not let facts get in the way of a story about a grown man who preys on young kids who aren’t good at baseball.
The YouTube poster calls him the “best umpire ever.” He wouldn’t qualify as the best if he were the only umpire ever.
Save this for the bathroom...
Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio is pretty proud of the $24.5 million renovation to the north side of Spartan Stadium which is set to be completed in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, Dantonio tweeted out some photos of the addition including the locker room, new entrance and recruiting room.

Andre Drummond is as big a force on social media as he is in the paint. He’s among the best in the NBA on Vine and Twitter. Over the weekend, he posted a Vine, complete with a solid soundtrack and sound effect, of him showing off his basketball skills using a bowling ball in a bowling alley.
Spoiler: bowling balls don’t bounce and they’re a bit heavier than basketballs...

The Detroit Lions announced Monday that players will wear a patch this season in honor of William Clay Ford, Sr., the long-time team owner who passed away on March 9th.
The patch features Ford’s initials over a black football-shaped silhouette with a strip of both of the Lions’ team colors, Honolulu blue and silver.
Ford purchased controlling ownership of the...

12-year-old Robby Eimers is already a star and is on his way to superstar status with his work with homeless people in Detroit. His work started three years ago when his grandmother, Cindy Kostukoff, took him to a homeless warming center in downtown Detroit to pass out blankets and coats. Coats and blankets that were purchased by then nine-year old Robby with his...
Whatever I say to introduce this video won’t do it justice. It’s one for the ages.
Michael Sam, the first openly gay player ever to be drafted into the NFL, gave an outstanding speech Wednesday at the ESPYs after he received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Drafted 249th overall in May’s draft by the St. Louis Rams, Sam was passed over because of his lack of size, perceived ability and in all likelihood, his sexual orientation.
He’s meeting his challenges head...
The good folks at USA Swimming and Speedo released a study this week which named the top ten cities in the USA for swimming. We aren’t talking about pool parties and boat gatherings on the lake. We’re talking swimming as in Olympians and those who do it for a living.
According to Yahoo! Sports: “The cities most favorable to swimmers don’t follow any geographic pattern...
I’m not sure if you have heard (you’ve definitely heard) that Justin Verlander spent his All Star break in Mexico with Kate Upton. I’m guessing you haven’t heard that Drew Smyly spent his break with his girlfriend Eryn Blatt (and their pooch), on a boat, somewhere more exotic (surprisingly) than Detroit.
And it was documented on the interweb, except these weren’t plastered...
Breaking news: Major League Baseball players (as with all professional athletes) make too much money. Some much more than others, but they’re all overpaid. When athletes sign contracts, the money they’re given is partly based on what they have done and partly based on what they’re expected to do.
These guys are expected to do a whole lot more than what they have done in...
Barry Sanders turned 46 Wednesday. I bet he could still run for 1,000 yards in today’s NFL. In honor of all things good that Barry did, here’s a highlight video of his best runs.
*I still think his retirement announcement on the eve of the 1999 training camp by faxing a letter to a Wichita newspaper was really weird though.
A first ERA of 4.88 (gasp) and a 1.46 WHIP (puke) got Justin Verlander a weekend in Mexico with girlfriend Kate Upton. Our friends at Busted Coverage ran down these pics of the couple totally not working on JV’s mechanics while lounging by the pool.
Prior to leaving Detroit for the break, JV mentioned not doing anything baseball during his time off.
“I’m not saying where...
Adrian Peterson is an All Pro tough, rugged running back. Jennie Finch, while being an All World softball pitcher is a girl. Save the emails. Jennie Finch would probably make me look silly too, but she downright embarrassed Peterson during the pre-All Star Game celebrity softball game.
I give props to All Day as, according to ESPN.com, he told her, “Don’t take it...
DEREK Jeter took the field for his 14th and final All Star game Tuesday. DEREK Jeter doubled in his first at bat and singled in his second. DEREK Jeter was replaced by Alexei Ramirez in the 4th inning allowing the Target Field crowd to give him (another) standing ovation. DEREK Jeter took a bow.
CBS News was all over it.
