NFL Punishes Seahawks For Blowouts, Gives Them One Prime Time Home Game

The NFL schedule was released on Wednesday evening, which, because the NFL rules all, sent everyone into a collective tizzy. Amid all the (mostly) pointless banter, one team’s schedule stood out: the Seattle Seahawks’. As is tradition, the Seahawks, being the defending Super Bowl champions, get to open at home on a Thursday night, in what will be a rematch of the Fail Mary game...

LaMarcus Aldridge Is Single-Handedly Destroying The Houston Rockets

The NBA playoffs have been a bit wonky so far. A year ago, through two games, road teams were 2-14. This year, all hell has broken loose after five lower seeds won road games over the weekend — and two more since then. Not even the Oklahoma City Thunder, as daunting a road opponent as any in the league, held serve, as they dropped Game 2 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday...

Terrible Human Swipes Foul Ball From Little Boy At Red Sox Game

This type of lowlight never fails to make me super angry, but this was. Not only does the grown ass man intentionally swipe the souvenir away from the little boy, he then proceeds to look him right in the eye as if to say “suck it, kid.” Since the kid was wearing a Yankees beanie, I’d have to imagine this horrible grown man was a Red Sox fan getting a little carried away with...

WATCH: Twins player homers while mom is interviewed

Chris Colabello of the Twins hit a two-run shot over the center-field wall to tie the game at 2-2 at the exact same time that his mother was being interviewed on FSN. Not only was it a fairly opportune time for Chris to launch the home run, it was also his mother’s birthday. Not too shabby of a birthday present, huh? The mother’s squeals of joy were pretty fantastic, and we...

‘Jeopardy!’ Submits To The Almighty Power Of Tim Tebow

Wednesday night’s episode of Jeopardy! featured a question about Tim Tebow, because Jeopardy! is clearly super hip and timely. If you ask me, this seems like a pretty good time for a #CancelJeopardy movement. [@xmasape] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Michael Pineda ejected after pine tar was found on his neck

After cameras caught Michael Pineda using an egregious amount of pine tar (or, according to Pineda, “dirt”) on his palm against the Red Sox earlier this month, he tried to pull the same schtick again on Wednesday night at Fenway. Unfortunately for Pineda, John Farrell is not dumb enough to be fooled twice. Pineda was ejected from the game in the second inning after Farrell asked...

Michael Smith Is The Accidental Troll Of NBA Awards Season

The NBA announced today that Goran Dragic of the Phoenix Suns was the recipient of the league’s Most Improved Player award.

Video of Bolivian Soccer Match Claims To Spot A Ghost

Video has surfaced from a soccer game in Hernando Siles Stadium in La Paz, Bolivia, which appears to show a ghost running through the crowd.  As another YouTube shows, the black shadow may in fact just be a ‘guy’ running in front of the spectators in a section that is appears to be wider than the rest.

Drunk Guy Dressed As Beetlejuice Breaks Into Stranger’s Home, Sleeps On Couch, Gets Chased Out

This video is from 2010, but was recently unearthed on Reddit (Reddit tends to do that from time to time). The video shows a man — dressed as Beetlejuice — conked out on a couch after a hard night of Halloween partying. The only problem is, the couch wasn’t his. Beetlejuice broke into a stranger’s home and passed out. The homeowner confronted him in the morning with a cell...

Brett Lawrie Is The Proud New Owner Of An Absolutely Atrocious Mustache

As someone who is terrible at growing facial hair, even I have to say that Brett Lawrie’s new mustache is god awful. As you can see in the selfie above, Lawrie has an upper lip caterpillar that probably prevents him from being able to come within a few hundred feet of a Chuck E. Cheese and/or public playground, but he really seems to like it for some reason. Lawrie on his new moustache...

Stone Cold Steve Austin Shows Profanity-Laced Support Of Gay Marriage

Things I learned today: Wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin has a podcast, and he’s very much in support of gay marriage. This audio clip of Austin going on a profanity-laced defense of same sex marriage was dug up by Deadspin today and, honestly, it’s pretty fantastic. Stone Cold may not exactly know how to put things, erm, “eloquently” but I whole-heartedly agree with...

Nene Steals Jump Ball In Most Blatant Way Possible

We’re pretty sure what Nene did here is against the rules — unless there’s something we don’t know, and it’s totally cool to hold an opponent’s arm down to deny going up for a jump ball (hold on, gonna ask Joey Crawford, brb). [@_MarcusD_] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

This is a pretty hilarious highlight from Tuesday night’s Game 3 between the Kings and Sharks in Los Angeles. Late in the third period, Sharks forward Logan Couture got tangled up with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who grabbed ahold of Couture and refused to let him rejoin the play down ice.
