DeAngelo Hall says Robert Griffin III understands what it takes mentally to be great, unlike Michael Vick

From a skill standpoint, Robert Griffin III should be honored to be compared to Michael Vick. Both are mobile quarterbacks who have cannons for arms and insane play-making ability. As far as an NFL career in concerned, Griffin would probably rather avoid the Vick comparisons. As in, I’m sure RG3 has no intention of being kept out of football for two years because of his involvement...

Santonio Holmes reportedly had a ‘mini-meltdown’ at Jets practice

And so it begins (continues?). The Jets have admitted that a number of locker room problems hampered their season last year. With that in mind, you would think they would make it a point to come into 2012 focused and ready to work. If Thursday’s practice was any indication, Santonio Holmes still needs a bit more time before making that commitment. According to ESPNNewYork.com,...

French open court turned pink to recognize ‘Ladies’ Day’ (Picture)

Apparently Thursday at the French Open was “Ladies’ Day.” That’s why the playing surface was turned into sheet of bright pink, of course. How else could the tournament hosts have honored women if they weren’t going to change the court into every girl’s favorite color? It’s one thing to use pink as a way to raise breast cancer awareness, but this is insulting. As ESPNW...

Celtics fans chant ‘Let’s go Celtics!’ at the end of blowout Game 6 loss (Video)

In the span of about 10 minutes on Thursday night, Celtics fans showed how they can be some of the classiest and most classless fans in America. After the game, there was the bonehead fan who spilled his drink on LeBron James as he was heading to the locker room. LeBron hung 45 points on the Celtics and was the reason Miami won, so that particular fan obviously had no clue how to...

Message on Celtics board told players ‘Pack for a Week’ (Picture)

Either the Celtics believe in the power of positive thinking, or they’re the cockiest team in the NBA. Not long after they were blown out at home by the Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, the above photo was tweeted out by the team’s official Twitter account. Boston is returning to Miami for Game 7 on Saturday, and they would travel to Oklahoma City for the first...

Drink spilled on LeBron as he leaves court

Facing elimination, LeBron James put on a performance for the ages in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals in Boston. The Heat forward put up 45 points, 15 rebounds, and 5 assists in a 98-79 blowout to even the series with the Celtics at 3. It was the sort of performance critics had been waiting to see, and James delivered. But there were several thousand folks who didn’t...

Jeff Van Gundy puts on red glasses to join the cool crowd (Picture)

Jeff Van Gundy became a trending topic on Twitter before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Celtics and Heat even began. After looking at the picture above, it’s easy to see why. I guess that was his way of connecting with the cool NBA kids crowd that consists of LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Dwyane Wade. Once the actual game began, Van Gundy went overboard...

With all the concerns involving security, housing, venues, and more that surround hosting the Olympic Games, one potential problem has a tendency to slip through the cracks: Prostitution.

Yes, Eagles fans, there may be hope after all. Katie Sunshine is a professional Hula-Hoop girl with a passion for anything and everything Philadelphia Eagles.

Chad Ochocinco to be released by Patriots

Thursday marked a great day in Schadenfreude if you dislike Chad Ochocinco. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots are releasing the wide receiver after shopping him and being unable to trade him on Thursday. The move is not at all surprising. Chad never was comfortable with the Patriots and saw fewer and fewer snaps as the season went on last year. He looked lost on...

Ukraine coach believes Germans may have sabotaged his team’s food

Ukraine lost its final Euro 2012 tune-up to Turkey on Tuesday, but the 2-0 loss was the least of the team’s concerns. The odds were stacked against Ukraine to begin with, as 10 players were held out of the game because of food poisoning. Clearly, the sickness was a result of something the team ate as a group. Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin says several players complained of upset...

Either Wednesday night’s Stanley Cup Finals game in Los Angeles was the first time Charlie Sheen has ever attended a professional sporting event, or it was the first time the American icon has not been given preferential treatment.

Ty Warren on whether he’d have Peyton Manning or Tom Brady: ‘Manning all day’

Ty Warren and Tom Brady have a long history together. The defensive tackle also has a long history with Peyton Manning — as an opponent. Warren played for the Patriots from 2003-2010, and New England won two of its three Super Bowls during that time frame. They also had countless battles with Manning and company during that eight-year span. Warren was seen as a strong locker room...

Lamar Odom reportedly unlikely to return to Lakers because of new CBA

There are a number of theories as to why Lamar Odom had such a horrible season with the Mavericks this year, most of which revolve around the depressed mindset his departure from the Lakers left him in. Odom will be 33 next season, so it’s possible he could become a useful veteran role player for some NBA team if he gets his head on straight. At this point, it doesn’t look like...
