Brian Urlacher blasts Chicago Bears for giving him contract ‘ultimatum’

Lou Piniella: Blue Jays raped the Marlins in blockbuster trade over the winter

Retired MLB manager Lou Piniella signed a deal to work as a commentator for the YES Network this year. The regular season has yet to begin, but on Wednesday we got a taste of why someone who is a little rough around the edges like Piniella may be better off in the dugout than the broadcaster’s booth. During the third inning of a spring training game between the Boston Red Sox and...

Shaun Marcum has intense skull bowling ball he uses just for spares (Picture)

New York Mets pitcher Shaun Marcum is apparently an avid bowler. He must be pretty good, too. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the only types of bowlers who have a ball specifically for spares and a ball specifically for strikes are the good ones. According to Mets PR man Jay Horwitz, that thing that looks like a skull frozen into a ball of ice is the ball Marcum uses...

Lakers center shows off hip-hop inspired tattoo

Los Angeles Lakers center Robert Sacre has been in the NBA for less than a season and only sees the floor an average of 6.7 minutes per night, so we know very little about the big man. What we do know is that he played college ball at Gonzaga and hails from Louisiana. We also now know that he is a huge fan of Snoop Dogg and DMX. SLAM Online’s Marcel Mutoni shared the photo you...

Matt Forte says he’s setting up ‘lowering the boom fund’ for new RB helmet rule

NFL owners voted on Wednesday to approve several rule changes, the most controversial of which is the league’s decision to prohibit offensive players from initiating contact with defensive players outside the tackle box by using the crown of their helmets.

LeBron James: Dunk on Jason Terry even ‘sweeter’ because he ‘talks too much’

The rivalry between Jason Terry and LeBron James is growing by the day, but there is really no arguing who won the latest battle. Not only did LeBron lead the Miami Heat to a comeback win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night, he also straight up posterized Terry in the process. On Wednesday, James admitted to reporters that he was glad Terry was the player he dunked on. “I...

Creepiest ‘Miracle’ speech ever involves Ronald McDonald and CHL’s Allen Americans (Video)

Earlier this month, the CHL’s Allen Americans held their fourth annual “McDonalds Night.” There’s no shame in wearing McDonalds-themed jerseys and turning into skating billboards for a night if it means keeping the team afloat. Professional sports organizations at the lower levels need to get creative sometimes to make money, and “McDonalds Night” obviously works for...

Last week, the young lady confidently fielded what she thought was a foul ball and handed it to a fan, only to later realize she had picked up a ball...

Bryce Harper gets card for free burritos for life from Chipotle (Picture)

What’s the point of making millions of dollars a year if Chipotle Mexican Grill is going to give you free burritos anyway? What do you spend your money on? Cars? Personally, I’d be all set with the free burrito card. Give me a few hundred bucks per week after that to pay my bills and I’m all set. As you can see, Bryce Harper was stoked on Tuesday when Chipotle gave him a personalized...

Anquan Boldin trade was initiated with phone call from John to Jim Harbaugh

We hear time and time again how football is simply a business. Trading players certainly falls under that umbrella, but what if the head coaches of the two teams making the trade are brothers? Does that complicate matters or make life easier? Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh can shed some light on that. Many were shocked when the Ravens...

Expert NCAA Tournament bracket picks: Del’s 2013 March Madness selections

On Tuesday, LB brought you his expert picks for the 2013 NCAA Tournament. As most of you know, the phrase “NCAA Tournament expert” is practically an oxymoron. No one knows what’s going to happen. If we did, we wouldn’t enjoy the tournament as much as we do year in and year out. That being said, we always give it our best shot every year in hopes of cashing in on that 1 in 9...

CP3 goes all out in flop attempt against Kings

Chris Paul is a tough leader on the floor, but the Los Angeles Clippers point guard can also be somewhat dramatic. During the third quarter of the Clippers’ 116-101 loss to the Kings Tuesday, CP3 bumped into Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins and flew backwards as if Boogie Cousins had pushed him. The video clearly shows that Paul was purely acting. The look on CP3′s face was...

Brett Favre helped convince Greg Jennings to sign with the Vikings

The Green Bay Packers did not want to pay Greg Jennings the same amount of money some other teams on the open market were willing to spend, so the two-time Pro Bowler decided to stick it to them by signing a five-year, $45 million with the Minnesota Vikings. As Brett Favre, Darren Sharper and Ryan Longwell could tell you, jumping from the Packers to their NFC North rivals is nothing...

NBA Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley has found himself a niche that has nothing to do with basketball.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft tried to explain how the whole Wes Welker ordeal went down from the perspective of the team on Monday. Basically, Kraft blamed Welker’s agents. He said they misrepresented Welker by thinking he was going to get more on the open market than he was actually capable of getting, and that it was that line of reasoning that inspired the Patriots...
