StubHub denies a man his $1 Stanley Cup tickets?

It’s hard to fault StubHub for someone else’s inability to to proofread their ticket sales but it’s also hard to fault someone for feeling like they missed out on the bargain of a life time. Kavi Arora was searching for some Stanley Cup tickets when he saw one deal that was too good to pass up: $1 per seat. He grabbed four for the price of a large drink at Starbucks (minus...

Terrible Things Will Happen to You if You Crash Your Golf Cart

So, golf carts weren’t meant to run smack-dab into concrete walls. Who knew? Unless one likes getting a face-full of glass and a face smashed in more easily than (SPOILERS) Oberyn Martell’s skull, don’t use a golf cart to try and win a battle with a wall. It won’t end well. But it’s hard to deny that the sight of a crash dummy getting absolutely wrecked isn’t a bit hypnotic...

Follow Sean Wagner-McGough on Twitter @seanjwagner In just two days, the Madden NFL 15 cover will be decided between Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. I know what you’re thinking, who cares about the cover of a video game? Well, apparently Sherman and Newton do. Exhibit A: Exhibit B: I’d more than willing to bet that Sherman wins the...

Meet the 2013-14 All-NBA First Team

As far as honors go, it’s hard to do better than being selected to the All-NBA First Team. Sure, the MVP may be the crowning individual achievement that a player can receive but being named to the First Team is it’s own kind of special reward, an acknowledgement that a player is at the top of their profession at their position. At the very least, it’s a better gauge of quality...

Peter Dinklage’s High School Mullet Demands Your Respect

I gotta tell you, it must be pretty great being Peter Dinklage. You are famous, on Game of Thrones, wildly popular among nerds and ladies alike, and now you have a yearbook photo that makes you even more badass. Look at that mullet! It’s glorious! I had simple, boring, parted hair in high school but Peter Dinklage was a beast! In honor of the end of school across the nation, we’ve...

Dr. Dre Bought Tom Brady’s Humongous Mansion For $40 Million

Fresh off the sale of his $3 billion sale of Beats Electronics to Apple, Dr. Dre has bought a new palace in California – and it’s the one that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen had built. It seemed like it took forever for construction on Brady and Gisele’s mansion in Brentwood, California to finish. In total, the 14,000 square foot and five-acre property – which features a state...

Man Crashes Browns Practice In Hopes Of Getting A Tryout, 3 Better Teams/Positions To Tryout For

Look, we all know the Cleveland Browns are bad, but not this bad. It was reported that a former high school player from New Mexico stopped by the Browns’ outdoor practice facility on Tuesday hoping to get a tryout with the Browns. The man was quickly escorted off the field. Props to the dude for going all out to accomplish his dreams, but here’s what I’m wondering: Why the...

Donald Sterling Swears He’s OK, Wonders if NBA is OK

Donald Sterling may have been forced to sell the Clippers but he seems to be taking things in stride. After all, it’s not too often where someone gets punished by gaining an additional $2 billion, which is what Steve Ballmer plans to pay for ownership of the Clippers. In a brief interview with NBC Los Angeles, Sterling even managed to show some concern for the NBA and Adam Silver...

President Obama Shows Questionable Form In The Weight Room

With beach season (aka cutting season) almost here, President Obama took some time away from his POTUS duties to hit the gym while staying at a hotel in Poland recently. A fellow gym-goer managed to stealthily snap a pic & video of Obama getting his swell on and, well, he could use some work on his form. Good thing we’ve got bombs because no country is going to feel threatened...

Here Are NHL Logos Redesigned With ‘Simpsons’ Characters

Seeing artists’ unique takes on sports logos is one of my favorite things on the Internet, ‘The Simpsons’ is one of my favorite shows on television, and hockey is my favorite sport. So, with that being said, you can probably understand my level of excitement when I saw that @ak47_studios had worked to redesign NHL logos using characters from The Simpsons. The graphic designer...

RoboCop, Savior Of Detroit, Can’t Even Reach Home Plate With First Pitch

Yesterday was supposed to be ‘RoboCop Day’ in Detroit, but things didn’t turn out according to plan. First,  the unveiling of a RoboCop statue in the city was cancelled because it wasn’t ready yet. Then, RoboCop himself was called upon to toss out the first pitch before yesterday’s Tigers game, where he came off looking like a huge sissy as he bounced it in the dirt. The...

WATCH: Brett Lawrie gets new batting stance with video glitch

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a MLB player fall victim to a hilarious broadcast glitch this season. Earlier in the season, Brandon Moss got turned into some sort of malfunctioning droid while stretching, and now Brett Lawrie has become the latest victim with this interpretation of his batting stance: Dat wiggle tho.

I Can’t Stop Watching This Attack Dog Destroy A Person In The Woods

If any NFL teams are looking to add some big-time playmakers to their defense for the upcoming season, I’m willing to represent this dog. Just look at the explosiveness off the line, the speed, the acceleration and – last but not least – the hit power. This dog is a future superstar, I’m sure of it.

Cubs Scoreboard Operator Sleeping On The Job Sums Up The Season Perfectly

It is hard to be mad at the Cubs scoreboard operator for falling asleep during Tuesday’s game against the Mets at Wrigley. The game somehow ended up being a pitchers duel on early, and it appears the scoreboard operator may have had one too many at the ‘Cubbie Bear’ the night before and just needed a quick nap.  He did what any of you would have done, he went ahead and took...

The story of Charlie Whitehurst losing an arm wrestling match (and his number) to a punter is simply one of those things that is too good to be true. Charlie Whitehurst, newly signed to the Tennessee Titans and punter Brett Kern both shared the same number and the two decided to fabricate a story where they arm wrestled for the rights to the no. 6 jersey with Charlie losing.

Did Jon Singleton screw himself by signing a $30 million deal?

Astros first base prospect Jon Singleton just signed a contract worth a reported max of $30 million dollars over 8 years. In comparison to today’s high stakes spending across MLB – I’m looking at you, Miggy and Clayton – $30 mil over 8 years is hardly enough to raise an eyebrow, and even less so when considering only $10 million of the deal is fully guaranteed. There’s...

Horace Grant Says that LeBron James’ Heat Wouldn’t Have Stood a Chance Against Michael Jordan’s Bulls

One of the most fun parlor games in sports is to imagine what it would be like if teams and players from different eras faced off against each other. Would Shaq have been as dominant playing against Bill Russell? Could Joe Montana have beaten last season’s Seattle Seahawks’ defense? Could Babe Ruth best Takeru Kobayashi in a hot dog eating contest? And what about LeBron James...
