Warren Sapp: Bill Belichick said he wanted to draft me so bad he had an erection

When Bill Belichick was coaching the Browns back in the mid-1990s, he had his sights set a defensive tackle from Miami named Warren Sapp. That is, assuming you believe Sapp’s recollection of his exchange with the three-time Super Bowl champion head coach.

DeSean Jackson complains about the media twisting his words

DeSean Jackson faced a ton of criticism last season for what many perceived to be a lack of effort. There were times when it appeared he was avoiding contact and going out of his way to avoid injury, which made sense considering he was playing for a contract.

Ozzie Guillen: I need the FBI or DEA to protect Giancarlo Stanton

There are very few pitchers in baseball who look forward to facing young Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton. The 22-year-old outfielder is hitting .292 this season with 22 homers and 66 RBI. Whenever an opponent gets the opportunity to pitch around him, they almost always cash in. This leads to some tricky lineup decisions for Ozzie Guillen, who has recently been criticized for not giving...

McKayla Maroney has hired bodyguards

McKayla Maroney’s parents are so worried about the safety of their daughter in light of her recent fame they’ve hired bodyguards to look after her. The 16-year-old gymnast from Long Beach, Calif., won gold in the team competition at the London Olympics, and she also took silver in the vault — a disappointing finish that led to an Internet meme that went viral.

Felix Hernandez to radio host who asks if he will stay in Seattle: ‘Yeah, I promise’

Fans, analysts and general managers around baseball cannot seem to accept that Felix Hernandez may stay with Seattle. The fact that King Felix is the best young pitcher in the game and recently threw a perfect game does not neccessarily guarantee he will be pitching in a mega-market like Boston or New York at some point in the near future. The Mariners have their ace under control...

Bart Scott: Prince Amukamura is still a rookie, should be bringing donuts to work

By now we are fairly sure that most of the Giants will be offering no apologies for throwing Prince Amukamara into a cold tub. While Tom Coughlin and several players have expressed regret and frustration over the video going public, the team seems to be of the belief that hazing is done out of love and brings the team closer. Jets linebacker Bart Scott thinks that Amukamara has not...

Stan Van Gundy blasts Magic CEO Alex Martins: He has no sports knowledge

There will be no talk about how the NBA is just a business and how there are no hard feelings now that Stan Van Gundy and the Magic have officially ended their relationship. There are hard feelings. It was no secret that Van Gundy and Dwight Howard did not get along, and Stan feels as though the Magic did a poor job of handling the situation. In particular, he doesn’t think very...

Rays fail to turn double play after ball goes through Jeff Keppinger’s glove (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Players make errors all the time. Both physical and mental miscues are a part of the game on a daily basis. Equipment malfunctions — not so much. They do happen, however, as the Rays reminded us during their game against the Royals on Monday night.

Titans get in on the rookie haircut hazing (Pictures)

I’m not sure what it is about haircut hazing, but it never seems to get old. Perhaps it’s simply because the possibilities are endless. A person’s head is a surprisingly versatile canvas, allowing talented artists and 300-pound football players alike to create masterpieces of art.

Ndamukong Suh says he doesn’t have a mean streak, doesn’t play angry

We already know that Ndamukong Suh does not consider himself to be a dirty player. He has been adamant about it several times in the past, as you would expect. Suh plays incredibly hard, which helps explain why he is such an intimidating presence on defense and also why he tends to be penalized more than others for late hits and unnecessary roughness. If it’s not dirty play,...

Jason Terry is hoping the Mavericks will retire his jersey

Jason Terry is as good a role player as any in the NBA. For eight seasons with the Mavericks, his steady 30-plus minutes per game and clutch three-point shooting helped make Dallas a contender. Without Terry, the Mavs likely would not have won the championship in 2011, nor would they have gone to the NBA Finals in 2006. But is he worthy of having his jersey retired? “The bow was...
