8-year-old girl writes heartwarming letter to Islanders' John Tavares

This is a touching reminder of how a sports star can connect with a fanbase in a powerful fashion. John Tavares means a lot to New York Islanders fans (trust me I would know, I am wearing this shirt while typing this). He has absolutely revitalized a franchise once left for dead. Despite a disappointing season, Tavares’ injury, and ineptitude in the front office Islander fans continue...

Is This The Worst Jumpman Logo Haircut Of All Time?

We ask only because we know this exists, and we just figured there’s no way anything could ever top it. We may have to rethink this one, though. Regardless, poor kid. [BSO] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

This Sleeping Sixers Fan Perfectly Sums Up Monday’s Bucks-Sixers Game

Monday night’s NBA slate featured an all-time stinker between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers — two teams that made reservations in the NBA Draft lottery a long time ago. Stories of the Sixers’ unapologetic (if not insulting) tanking have been widespread, but the Bucks have been no slouch either, quietly managing to win five fewer games and building a somewhat...

Metta World Peace Waived By The Knicks, Drops Highlight Reel As a Good-Bye

Metta World Peace was released by the New York Knicks on Monday, and as he was given his walking orders he treated his fans to a mixtape of his time as a Knicks player.   The highlights aren’t going to blow your mind, but you have to feel for the guy who wasn’t exactly put in a position to succeed this year.   [Twitter] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

NHL Players Are What Separates The Winter Olympics From The Summer

I am obsessed with the Olympics. When that flame is lit every 2 years, I am completely distracted from anything and everything going on in my everyday life. If you ever wanted to sneak something past me, the Olympics are when you would choose to do it. When NBC introduced live streaming of events in 2012, it pretty much officially announced that I would be mostly useless for the...

Utah Jazz Rookie Forgets To Buy Donuts For Teammates, Pays Dearly For It

In the wake of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin “bullying” incident last fall, the NBA sent a memo to all 30 teams to reiterate the league’s laundry list of activities that could be considered acts of bullying and/or hazing. Aside from standard workplace no-nos (no physical abuse; no abuse based on race, religion, gender, age, sexuality; intimidation), the league also included...

Insane Russian Teen Lights Self On Fire, Then Jumps Off Roof

The Sochi Olympics ended Sunday, which was apparently a devastating reality for one insane Russian teen. Just kidding — that’s not what’s going on here. And don’t worry, he’s fine, because this is just what he does: “I am into this kind of extreme things,” he said. “I have been doing it for several years now.” As always, please don’t try this at home.

Rob Ford Celebrated Canada’s Hockey Gold Medal By Smashing His Junk Into A Fire Hydrant

Rob Ford, Toronto Mayor and man of the people, took to the streets to celebrate the Canadian men’s hockey team beating Sweden for the gold medal in Sochi on Sunday. Whilst doing so, Ford accident walked junk-first into a fire hydrant. Like most things involving Rob Ford, it was way funnier than it probably should have been. I love this man.

Michelle Jenneke and Kate Hansen Just Got Warm-up Danced Into Oblivion

I have always been a fan of Michelle Jenneke’s pre-race routine as one of the greatest warm-ups of all time. Then Kate Hansen came along and submitted a very solid attempt at taking the crown. Well, you both have to scoot over thanks to this kid from Lawrence Academy. Game over, move on there is nothing to see here except the greatest pregame dance routine of all time. [Barstool...

We’ve already gotten a few looks at the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, but it seems like each one leaves more carnage in its wake. This latest trailer, which focuses on the films villains – primarily Jamie Foxx’s Electro and, more briefly, Rhino and Green Goblin – is certainly the most destructive preview we’ve gotten so far.

Camera Error Leads To Awkward And Hilarious BBC News Transition

I’m not really sure what the hell happened here – maybe the camera operator passed out or got distracted at the end of this news segment – but it led to a hilariously awkward transition back to the anchor desk during a recent BBC newscast this week. It’s almost hypnotizing to watch Caroline sign off by slowly disappearing into the bottom of the screen. Also, it wouldn’t...

Hey Sickos, Stop Sending Cliff Lee Your Fingernail Clippings

It’s no secret that Philadelphia is home to some of the most “passionate” fans in sports, but Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee was probably a little weirded out by a recent gesture by one fan that was bizarre even for Philly’s standards. Tidbit from #Phillies camp today: Somebody mailed Cliff Lee their fingernail clippings. The perks of celebrity. #FanNail — Anthony Castrovince...

When The Broad Jump Goes Bad: The NFL Scouting Combine Edition

6’2″ and 331-pound former Notre Dame defensive lineman, Louis Nix is one of the hundreds of athletes competing in the NFL Scouting combine in Indianapolis this week. He made the highlight reel today, but not exactly because of a monster broad jump. Rather, he made the highlight reel because momentum and gravity decided to have a little fun with the big fella.

Let’s Watch Jadeveon Clowney’s 40 Time Melt Warren Sapp’s Brain

In case you missed it, Jadeveon Clowney absolutely crushed his 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine earlier today – running an unofficial 4.47 and 4.48 in his two attempts. Like the rest of us, Warren Sapp was pretty blown away (evidenced by the GIF above) while watching the South Carolina defensive end sprint down the field. He actually looks quite terrified by Clowney’s athleticism...

The fact that South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is an athletic freak of nature isn’t breaking news, but Monday morning at the NFL combine he ran the 40-yard dash in a ridiculously short amount of time for a defensive lineman. Clowney posted a 4.47-second unofficial time in his first 40-yard dash and posted a 4.48 second run on his second attempt. Check out this spreadsheet...
