Kirk Cousins says NFL randomly drug tested him at his grandmother’s house

When the NFL tells players they will be randomly drug tested at any time in any place, they are not exaggerating. Part of life in the NFL means having to wonder if a collector is going to show up while you’re out having a slice of pizza and demand that you take a pee in front of them. Heck, they might even show up when you’re visiting your grandma. Just ask Washington Redskins...

Laynce Nix blames Nike for his calf injuries last season

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Laynce Nix struggled through a frustrating 2012 season last year. Because of injuries, the 32-year-old was only able to play in 70 games. He became a small part of what was a major theme for the Phillies all year long, but unlike his teammates Nix has someone to blame for his injuries. It’s the shoes. According to Nix, the Nike cleats he wore over...

AHL’s Syracuse Crunch have hilarious ‘For a good time’ billboard (Picture)

AHL teams need to find creative ways to sell tickets, and putting together a hilarious billboard advertisement is one way to do that. If the Syracuse Crunch were my local AHL team, I’d be buying tickets to a game the second I saw their new billboard. “For a good time call 473-4444,” the masterpiece reads. If a picture of a hockey player with a grizzly beard laying across a...

Jim Boeheim caught picking his nose in his boss Nike glasses (Picture)

We’ve all been there. You have something in your nose that you just know can’t be blown out. Sometimes it gets to the point where it doesn’t matter who’s watching — you just have to dig. It appears that happened to Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim during the Big East Tournament on Wednesday. As you can see, cameras spotted Boeheim digging for gold while wearing his baller eyeglasses...

Wes Welker reportedly turned down more money from Titans to sign with Broncos

As you may have heard, Wes Welker reportedly signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday. New England Patriots fans are shocked that their team was unwilling to match or beat such a seemingly reasonable offer for one of the most productive players in their franchise’s history, but that has become the Patriot way over the years.

Derrick Rose reportedly offered to pay for funeral of murdered 6-month-old

Derrick Rose is not the type of player who would do something for publicity. His level of talent alone makes him a superstar, but Rose is a very private person. This is a guy who wouldn’t even dance like the rest of his teammates at the All-Star Game last year. That’s why you know the murder of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins must have really hit home for him. According to WLS-TV...

Cribbs bids farewell to Cleveland with collage

Josh Cribbs said goodbye to the city of Cleveland in about as classy of a manner possible. He (or most likely someone from his camp) put together a collage of images from his time in Cleveland that tell a powerful story. Cribbs was signed by the Browns in 2005 as an undrafted free agent. He spent eight seasons with the team and made the Pro Bowl twice as a return man. He scored...

Manny Lawson signed with Buffalo Bills, was not aware of how bad they have been

Manny Lawson did not exactly do his research before signing with the Buffalo Bills. The former first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers signed a four-year, $12 million deal with the Bills on Wednesday. He made it pretty clear at his press conference that his decision to sign really was about the money. How do we know? He said he had no idea the Bills have gone 13 straight seasons...

New England Patriots’ offer to Wes Welker reportedly was two years, $10 million

New England Patriots fans may have been able to accept losing Wes Welker in free agency had he signed a good-sized contract with another team. But the circumstances surrounding his split from the Pats has left many enraged. It’s easy to see why. The Patriots lost Welker, who made five straight Pro Bowls while playing for the team, to their AFC competitor Denver Broncos, and Tom...

Pranksters who recorded Buddy Nix-Mark Dominik phone call may have committed a felony

You probably have heard that a couple of kids, with a little luck and a lot of chutzpah, were able to merge two separate phone calls involving Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik. They then recorded the conversation between Nix and Dominik, which was later revealed on Deadspin. Sounds like some pretty complicated and hi-tech stuff right? Actually,...

Yoenis Cespedes reunites with mother, family after stressful year

For over a year, Oakland A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had hardly any idea of where his mother, Estella Milanes, and 11 of his family members were or where they might end up. Cespedes defected from Cuba to the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2011 to pursue a career in professional baseball. The 26-year-old has succeeded, but prior to this week he had done so at the expense...

Percy Harvin: Trade a ‘huge relief,’ but I had ‘great relationship’ with Vikings

It would be silly of us to expect Percy Harvin to dog on the Minnesota Vikings organization after forcing his way out of town, but he may have gotten a bit carried away during his introductory press conference with the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday. Harvin, who almost looked as if he was fighting back tears at one point, spoke to the media about how blessed he felt to be in Seattle...

Wes Welker reportedly ‘seriously considering’ leaving the Patriots

Wes Welker and the New England Patriots are involved in a classic game of chicken, and it may not end well for Tom Brady. When Brady restructured his contract a few weeks ago to give the team more cap space, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that bringing back Welker would be New England’s top priority. On the second day of free agency, that doesn’t appear to be the case....

When Hudsonville High School (Mich.) found itself trailing by two points with only 1.5 seconds left on Monday night, it looked as if their hopes for advancing to the Regional Title game had all but disappeared. They had just about enough time left on the clock for a catch-and-shoot, but considering they were inbounding the ball from their own baseline the task seemed impossible....

Linebacker Karlos Dansby is one of the latest cap casualties of the 2013 offseason, as the Miami Dolphins announced on Wednesday morning that they have cut the 10-year veteran. Dansby was signed through the 2014 season, so many believed he would be cut after the upcoming year. The Dolphins instead decided to clear some cap space now in an attempt to keep getting younger. Many veteran...

Mike D’Antoni on hack-a-Dwight Howard: ‘I hate it for the fans’

Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is one of the worst free throws shooters in the NBA. He is shooting less than 50% from the line this season, and opponents have begun preying on his weakness. During Tuesday night’s win over the Orlando Magic, Howard went to the free throw line an NBA record-tying 39 times. He converted 25 of those attempts, which is better than expected...

Brook Lopez dunked on twin brother Robin Lopez (Video)

No two players in the NBA are more familiar with each other’s game than Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez. Brothers who grow up together typically play sports against one another, but brothers who are the exact same age and grow up to be 7-feet tall probably take that to another level. With that in mind, it’s safe to assume the Lopez brothers are accustomed to dunking on one another...
