This Fun-Killing Homeowners Association Is Totally NOT Cool With Seahawks 12th Man Flags

First of all, how much you want to bet the HOA director is a Texas A&M fan? Even then, the flag is displayed inside the residence — not flapping obnoxiously in the wind outside. So, other than the uptight hag who probably runs the show in this cul-de-sac, who is it really bothering? Answer: Nobody. Ironically, “Nobody” is also the approximate number of people who should...

Max Lapierre Rescues Blues With Improbable Save In OT

The Blues and Blackhawks took part in an exhausting three overtime war of attrition in their quarterfinals opener on Thursday night. Both teams had plenty of opportunities to win it over the extra three frames, but the Blackhawks had a golden chance to end it in the first OT but were denied thanks to the game’s best save…and it wasn’t made by a goalie.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer appears to have finally joined Twitter this week.

Hey Look, The Yankees Turned A Triple Play!

After allowing two baserunners to start the bottom half of the second in Tampa on Thursday, the Yankees pulled off a pretty perfect 5-4-3 triple play to get out of the frame unscathed.

PHOTO: Ryan Getzlaf's face, after being hit by slap shot

In case you missed it, Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf had to leave the ice during Game 1 of the Ducks-Stars series after taking a Tyler Seguin slap shot directly to the face in the game’s final seconds. The puck appeared to strike Getzlaf around the mouth, where he began to bleed pretty profusely before heading to the locker room for repairs. He managed to escape serious damage...

The National Anthem Before Rangers-Flyers Game 1 Was A Hot Mess

C.C. Sabathia’s Latest Idea Could Eliminate Instant Replay

Think about it, no human umpires, just robot umpires? Oddly enough, the timing for this pitch by C.C. Sabathia comes at an uneasy (and slightly controversial) moment in baseball where the human element is being challenged by instant replay.
