We Really Wish These “TRON”-Inspired Air Jordans Were Real

Apparently, it’s Air Jordan Week on these Internet streets. First, it was Eric Snow auctioning off a signed, game-worn pair of the best basketball shoe in history — the black and red Jordan XI. Now, we have some concept art of another Air Jordan — the not-quite-as-coveted Jordan XIII, but in a colorway that would send both Jordan and sci-fi fanboys into a tizzy if it ever turned...

After a stellar performance in the Kings’ Game 7 victory against the Blackhawks in the Western Conference Finals, Justin Williams came up big once again in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

Wayne Gretzky And His Fantastic Hair Dropped The Ceremonial Puck Before Game 1 Of The Stanley Cup Final

via @NHL NHL legend Wayne Gretzky was invited to drop the puck before Game 1 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Gretzky, who spent time with both the Kings and Rangers during his Hall of Fame career, cleaned himself up quite nice for the occasion. The Great One must have known he had to compete with Henrik Lundqvist, that’s really the only explanation...

“Wheel Of Fortune” Contestant Submits Most Nonsensical Answer Ever

We’ve been blessed over the past few months with some pretty incredible moments on Wheel of Fortune — both good and bad. This one, however, is just bizarre. The answer is clearly “Surf City Here We Come”, which this guy blurted out as…”Surf Clay Where We Go”? It looks like the guy froze up a bit, but still, how he came up with that, we have no idea.

So, Justin Bieber Once Sang About Killing Black People, Joining the KKK

News revolving around Justin Bieber has reached the point where it’s hard to decipher what is real and what is fake. Unfortunately, this is very, very real. TMZ was able to obtain video of a young 14 year old Bieber singing to his own song “One Less Lonely Girl” but with less lyrics about charming a young lady into becoming his girlfriend and more lyrics about killing black...

Donald Sterling Drops Lawsuit Against NBA, Will Take the Money and Run

Donald Sterling will do everyone a favor and drop his lawsuit against the NBA. In addition, he won’t contest the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer. This means that one of sports’ worst owners is all but vanquished from the NBA and (hopefully) from the public eye for good. Donald Sterling’s lawyer Max Blecher says he will not pursue further legal action, and...

Jurgen Klinsmann Will Allow U.S. Players to Have Sex During the World Cup

The World Cup is a big deal (it’s true!) and coaches are working to ensure that all their players are in tip-top shape for the event. For some coaches, including Mexico’s Miguel Herrera, that includes barring their players from engaging in sex. The longstanding idea is that sex is tiresome and that players who engage in funny business will be too exhausted to play against the...

Why Colin Kaepernick Is Worth The Money

Now that Colin Kaepernick has landed the most guaranteed money in the history of the NFL, he now faces the pressure that comes gift-wrapped with his $61 million. Criticism of the deal will be plentiful and with good reason. Quite frankly, there are an abundance of statistics that would seem to indicate that Kaepernick is not worth the money. Kaepernick only attempted 416 passes...

Eric Snow Is Auctioning Off Signed, Game-Worn Air Jordans From 1996 Finals

The Air Jordan XI is arguably Michael Jordan’s most popular and most coveted shoe of all time. Originals — in mint condition — are tough to track down (brag alert: yours truly has a black/red pair), and if you are lucky enough to find them, cost an arm and a leg. Even buying a recent retro on eBay will cost you significantly more than face value. Even tougher to find? Game...

Paul George Just Pocketed a Cool $7 Million

The NBA announced its All-NBA teams today and there may be no player happier with that news than Paul George. No, George didn’t make All-NBA First Team. Heck, he didn’t even make All-NBA Second Team this year. However, by making the All-NBA Third Team this season, Paul got $7 million. Not a bad consolation prize.

And by every word, we really mean every word. The only interesting fact we can glean from this absurd project — which took Murphy 30 hours — is the fact the word “lightsaber” is only...

LeBron James to Bust Out Flashy Kicks for NBA Finals

The shoe looks amazing: Only time will tell if LeBron actually wears these for the entire game or if he will switch back to the Zoom Soldier. Judging by how much these pop...

New York and California Governors Make Really Awful Stanley Cup Finals Bets

Super Bowl 50 Spells the Death of Roman Numerals (for one year)

We had noted how the Super Bowl was pretty much the only thing keeping Roman Numerals relevant in modern times.

The NFL has released the logo for Super Bowl 50, which will take place in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2016, and the logo uses the Arabic numeral...
