Justin Verlander responded to Tigers fans/haters on Instagram Monday who have admonished his canoodling with girlfriend Kate Upton and being seen out and about having fun while rehabbing his bum shoulder. Verlander has not made a start this season after suffering a sore shoulder mid-way through spring training.
He put people in their place. And then he was a pet peeve...
On Monday morning, Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and billionaire Warren Buffett arm wrestled on CNBC’s ‘Squawk Box’. Suh has been chums with the 84-year old tycoon for some time now. If you remember, Buffett was on-hand for Suh’s last game at Ford Field in December.
At first, it appeared that this battle was pretty even, but Buffett ended up the victor...
Base jumping off the second highest residential tower in the world (or any tower for that matter) seems like a good way to spend your Thursday morning. According to the person who put this on YouTube, this group completed 558 BASE jumps off the Princess Tower in Dubai. A Google search tells me that the Princess Tower is 101 stories or 1,358 feet tall.
Vegas set the odds of Rob Gronkowski settling down with a girlfriend equal to those of Rob Gronkowski not partying like a maniac this summer. That girlfriend, Camille Kostek, is an absolute smokeshow.
Gronk’s camp confirmed to TMZ that the two are an item after the internet caught up to them. Kostek was a Patriots cheerleader during the 2013 and 2014 seasons and has since...

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander tweeted his thoughts on fans’ suspicion of certain players who may or may not have used performance-enhancing drugs Wednesday morning.
Verlander’s numbers might lead some to think he used some performance-enhancing substances prior to or during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. These two seasons are highlighted below. I will...
Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley was drilled by a line drive through the box off the bat of Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez Tuesday night. Here’s rather disturbing video of the before, during and after. The sound of the impact is gruesome.
As he rolled over, it looks like he’s hiding a tennis ball under his right cheek. Great news, however, came from Dbacks...
A $12 Major League baseball is worth more to some than others. To this guy, it was worth a $10 beer, a $200 phone and being the subject of a viral video. I’d definitely dump a full beer to snag a foul ball, but that’s because I think beer tastes like sweaty feet. At least, that’s what I assume sweaty feet taste like.
But, I’d spit at a baseball it involved...
Fox Sports Detroit reported Tuesday that Fox Sports Detroit broadcaster, former Major League player/manager and Michigan State baseball/football stud Kirk Gibson has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Gibson was just added to the FSD broadcasts this season on a part-time color commentator, splitting time with Rod Allen and Jack Morris.
Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek made 27 saves Monday night in Game Six, none more ridiculous than this stick save on Brian Boyle. It’s just too bad it didn’t mean anything in the end as the Lightning won 5-2 to take the series to a seventh and final game in Tampa Wednesday night.
But come on, this save is bonkers.
Here’s the entire play:
The mansion of troubled outfielder Josh Hamilton has recently been put up for sale as the trade that sent him from the Los Angeles Angeles to the Texas Rangers was finalized Monday. Hamilton filed for divorce in February shortly after he caught his wife cheating, which caused him to fall back into his drug habit, the reasoning behind the Angels parting ways with him.
Former #2 overall NBA draft pick Darko Milicic looked tall and sloppy as he showed off some tats, chugged a bottle of beer and sang a little karaoke. He looked tall because he’s 7’2″. He looked sloppy because he’s incredibly sloppy.
Breaking news, Darko: tattoos don’t drink beer.
Saturday, in the “final match #2″ of the Ligue nord-américaine de hockey, Jon Mirasty and Joël Thériault dropped the gloves and used each others’ head as a speed bag. These dudes are two of the roughest and nastiest fools ever to put on skates. For those scoring at home, Mirasty (in white) stands at 5’10” and 220 pounds. Theriault (in blue) is 6’4″ and...
Draymond Green through all defensive principles out the window Thursday after finishing second to the Spurts’ Kawhi Leonard for the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. While guarding the Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson, Green went with the old “I’ve been shot” defensive as Anderson tried to clear space.
Somewhere Tom Izzo is slamming his clenched right fist into his...
Sometimes television is tough. You have to be told when to start talking. You have to know which camera to look into. You have to pay attention.
Mickey York, Darren Eliot and Chris Osgood of Fox Sports Detroit had all sorts of trouble during the second intermission of Thursday’s Game Four of the Red Wings Lightning game.
Fox Sports Detroit fail.

Michigan State revealed some new football uniforms Thursday in their quest to continue with what’s hot in college football. If you don’t have an alternate uniform, you just can’t hang. Or something like that.
The stuffy traditionalists will point to the classic Penn State and Alabama uniforms and ask why everybody can’t be like them. Young adults, college kids, high...
Floyd Mayweather has purchased over 100 cars from Towbin Motorcars in Las Vegas. This is me excusing myself while my lunch projects from my mouth. 100 cars, one dealership and that includes 16 Rolls-Royces and three Bugattis. (Here’s a picture of his three Bugattis)
According to Josh “Chop” Towbin, Mayweather buys cars priced at hundreds of thousands of...
An un-manned golf cart on the campus of Loyola University Chicago out-maneuvered police as it went around and around and around in circles.
The proper play is obviously to beat the thing with your baton. Don’t worry, the cop is all over it!
His name is Marko Milovanovic, he’s the captain of the Serbian IIHF junior team and now the proud owner of the worst hocket shootout attempt of all time. Now, there have been several attempts called the worst of all time and I have dubbed a couple myself. But this one takes the cake. And it isn’t close.
You know how some average Joe’s (non-athletes) say, “I could...
The hockey term “kick save and a beauty” holds true for Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek and his girlfriend Sara Olivova. Mrazek doles out the kick save and Olivova is the – wait for it – beauty.
The Franklin, MI native and current Georgia State sand volleyball player was born in the Czech Republic, like Mrazek. She’s 5’11” and now I’ll stop acting like you want to...
Jim Harbaugh talked about how he met his current wife on HBO’s “Real Sports” with Andrea Kremer. And my goodness is this guy all kinds of psycho. Once divorced, Harbaugh said he saw his current wife, Sarah, at a restaurant. She was getting take out. He approached her, she gave him her number, he called her, she didn’t answer.
And then he called again…and...
Pavel Datsyuk is a funny guy. He has some of the best (if not the best) hands in the NHL. He can dangle like no other. He’s as gentlemanly as they come. They might as well re-name the Lady Byng trophy the Pav. He can snipe when he needs to. He dishes helpers like a philanthropist.
But as good a hockey player as he is, he may be equally as funny. YouTuber “The...
Hi, my name is Nike and I want to take advantage of sappy Ohio State fans that are still emotional of their football national championship. I expect them to pay $350 for three adjustable hats and a three-tiered hat box. $100 per hat and $50 for some cardboard. Great deal.
Hi, my name is Nike and I am a thief…and Ohio State fans are fools. Well, they’re fools whether...
All eyes will be on the octopi that will dress the Joe Louis Arena ice and the girls in charge of picking them up this playoff season. The MVP of the Red Wings ice crew and octopi removal team is Brittany. She was “discovered” by a friend of the program, Isaac of Uproxx, last playoff season and now runs stuff.
She picks up a mean octopus and she was decent enough to answer...
How many F-bombs can you drop over the course of five minutes while still (somewhat) coherently discussing your job? Here is audio of Reds manager Bryan Price setting the bar at 77 Monday during his profanity-laden rant about the Cincinnati media and injuries to his ball club.
Price’s issue was about Cincinnati Enquirer’s C. Trent Rosencrans reporting/tweeting...
