The Michigan football team lost to an unworthy Big Ten team in Maryland Saturday and tight end commitment Chris Clark took note. Clark tweeted that Michigan has hit “rock bottom”.
A little while later, Clark, the second-best TE prospect in the country, retweeted anther tweet rooting on the USC Trojans. Despite the verbal commitment to Michigan, Clark is visiting USC...
During talk of Alabama’s “cupcake” game against Western Carolina Saturday, ESPN’s Jade McCarthy said she is dairy and gluten free so she can’t enjoy cupcakes. Someone delivered some dairy and gluten-free cupcakes to the desk and Jade dug right in.
But she did it wrong. Who doesn’t get frosting in the first bite? #Fail #IKnowSheWasJustBeingALady
His name is Porter Maberry. He’s five feet, five inches tall. He dunks basketballs. And he does it well. In a video put out by Dunkademics, Maberry showed his stuff. And by stuff, I mean dunks. And by dunks, I mean slam dunks. He’s a “professional” dunker, which I think means he gets paid to dunk basketballs. Whatever works, I guess.
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson wasn’t about to sit inside and mope about all of the snow falling in Buffalo over the past 48 hours. Some areas received as much as 65 inches (and are expected to get more – MORE?! – Wednesday night and Thursday). Jackson went outside and played shot put with his daughters…because what else were they supposed to do?
Whoever said that table tennis isn’t a contact sport? This video has been going around this week and I couldn’t not post it. In Russia (where else), it certainly proved to be when Peter Prick (such a made-up name) shoved Ulrich the Umpire (also a made-up name) out of his seat after match point. Dozens of adults stand and look because RUSSIA!
Following the match...
Ten minutes before Wednesday’s game against the Suns, all of 26 people were inside The Palace.
Entering the game, the Pistons were 3-8, the Suns 6-5. It was a balmy 25 degrees out with a windchill of 20. The roads weren’t the greatest. Earlier today, tickets were available for $3 on Stubhub. The announced attendance was 10,686 (sure it was).
I know where I was – in...
In incredibly-important-breaking news, Greg Monroe’s contact lens popped out in the waning minutes Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns. BUT…BUT…he found it.
We can all sleep easy now.

In 2014, Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio will earn $5.6 million, good for second-highest in the nation behind Alabama’s Nick Saban who is making $7.2 million. The USA Today released their database of college football coaching salaries for the year on Wednesday.
Dantonio has received two bumps in salary in 2014. The first came in January...
Wednesday’s date marks the tenth anniversary of one the biggest black marks in the NBA, sports and Detroit history as we “celebrate” (hardly) the “Malice at The Palace”. Ten years ago tonight, the Pistons, Pacers and fans brawled in the stands and on The Palace floor because, frankly, people are idiots. With 45 seconds left and the Pacers leading by...
It has been well-documented over the last few days that hockey legend Gordie Howe is batting for his life after suffering two strokes. On Monday, Keith Olbermann of ESPN offered an outstanding tribute.
It’s well worth your six minutes if you haven’t seen it. It’s well worth your six minutes if you have seen it.
For what seemed like much of last season, Miguel Cabrera played with a bum wheel. On October 22nd (pictured above), he underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture to the navicular bone in his right foot. On Tuesday, he tweeted post-surgery photos.
Cabrera’s tweet loosely reads, “Thank God for giving me the strength to play with a fractured foot.” There...
It wouldn’t have been my first choice of words, but the Eastern Michigan basketball play-by-play guy went with “facial” in describing EMU’s Karrington Ward’s dunk over Oakland University’s K. Felder Monday night.
And really, it’s probably the most emphatic call of a “facial” in the history of facials.

As part of welcoming the University of Detroit Mercy Titans to the Matthew Knight Center, this Oregon bro froze during the pre-game introductions on ESPNU.
I present to you Exhibit A for why ESPN should plant a cute blonde behind the announcers – not some gumpy dude dressed as nightmare fuel.
Am I wrong?

Before he turned 15, Floyd Mayweather’s son almost had everything. After his dad bought him a gold Bentley golf cart for his 15th birthday, now he does.
A Bentley golf cart? A Bentley golf cart. Whatever. I bet it doesn’t even have a spot for his golf bag. (I’m totally aware that he doesn’t have a golf bag).

The quarterback took the snap, turned around and handed off to an offensive lineman – an offensive lineman – who took it in for a touchdown. Crescenta Valley (CA) offensive guard BK Kim took the hand off, buried it in his midsection and waited until everyone else on the football field cleared. Then he ran 20 yards for a score.
There are well drawn-up plays and then...

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton attended a trapeze school in New York City over the weekend because who wouldn’t want to swing from a trapeze. Well, I can think of three people who shouldn’t want to swing from a trapeze: (1) me; (2) a person afraid of heights and (3) a former Cy Young and Most Valuable Player who underwent core surgery...
Remember that one time (Sunday night) when Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban scored a goal off Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey’s nuts? Jimmy Howard had no chance because (1) the shot was going wide of the net and (2) how is he supposed to know how a puck will deflect off a guy’s guys?
This just gives new definition to Kyle Quincey being junk. Now, his junk is junk.
Sometimes sports doesn’t look like sports.
Hubert Poulin, a player for the Trois-Rivieres Blizzard of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH), had an incident with a fan over the weekend involving a water bottle. Watch the lower right corner of the video as Poulin chucks a water bottle into the crowd. Then Charlie Crazyfan sends it right back, spiking it on the ice and offering a few “come at me bro’s”...
Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham scored a touchdown Sunday in New Orleans and graciously tossed it to a Bengals fan in the crowd. Said Bengals fan never got the ball though as Hugejerk Saintsfan jumped in and stole it.
Gresham’s touchdown gave the Bengals a 20-3 third quarter lead and they went on to win 27-10. This was actually the best defensive play the someone in black...
Hockey legend Gordie Howe, 86, is “suffering considerably” according to his son Mark after suffering a second stroke about a week ago. Mark, a former NHLer and now a Red Wings scout is in Lubbock, Texas, with his sister Cathy, caring for Gordie. If you remember, the Howe family released a statement on November 4th saying Gordie had been improving after suffering...
Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis announced that the men’s basketball team will be part of a doubleheader on Nov. 11, 2016 — Veterans Day — in a hangar on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu, Hawaii. It’s just another notch on Hollis’ unmatched creativity pole.
Michigan State will play Arizona, and Indiana will play Kansas in the fifth...

Despite one of the best seasons in school history and a Rose Bowl win last season and a top 10-quality team this year, Michigan State has had trouble attracting students to Spartan Stadium. It’s a problem most of the country faces as students have as good an alternative to watch games as they ever have had before.
If there is a guy who will come up with...
Taylor Swift and Kate Upton got close after the Knicks 97-95 loss to Orlando Wednesday night. The two, who obviously aren’t friends, posed for pics on the Madison Square Garden floor.
Verlander, perhaps jealous of his GF for getting close with T-Swizz, gave her a look worth at least 15 words.
When you’re nicknamed the Big Hurt, you probably need a big house. Frank Thomas has just that at 25,000 square feet and three acres of land in Chicago ‘burb of Oak Brook. He spent about eight million dollars to build the monster and then put it on the market for $11 million in 2000.
Over a decade later and this bank-owned sucker can be yours for a measly $2.5 million. It...
