Notre Dame Revives Tradition Of ‘Trick Shot Monday’

Don’t be surprised if you have never heard of Notre Dame’s tradition of trick shot Monday, it took me some research to find out that it was actually a tradition.

C.C. Returns To The Tribe

No… not that CC… nor that Lee for that matter. The Indians recalled pitcher C.C. Lee Tuesday as part of baseball’s September roster expansion. Unfortunately for Cleveland fans, he does not carry the same Cy Young credentials that former Tribe aces-turned-prized-deadline-acquisitions-for-other-teams CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee do. He does, however, sport a career ERA of 0.00,...

Hi, Two 720 Pound Alligators Were Caught In The Mississippi River This Weekend

The world is a much safer place today after two gigantic Alligators were pulled from the Mighty Mississippi River by a group of hunters. Both beasts measured over 13 f*****g feet in length and could probably kill sharks with their eyes closed. These beasts are the stuff of nightmares, except they were real, which makes me wonder what else is out there. More from NPR: Two alligators...

Jimmy Clausen’s Girlfriend Flips Panthers Fans The Bird

That’s not very nice now is it?  A couple of Panthers fans just wanted a pic of Jimmy Clausen’s lady and she had to go and make an obscene gesture.  Hey, you want to date a below-average NFL quarterback, you have to be able to deal with all the pub and criticism. With that said, I respect a girl who sticks up for her man.  Great job by Mr. Jordan for documenting the whole...

Someone Is Actually Selling a Patriots’ “We Used To Be Cheaters, Now We’re Murderers” Shirt

The title of “worst person of the day” goes to whomever is selling this shirt in Pittsburgh.

Tennis Player Experiences Brief Meltdown Highlighted By Throwing His Socks

Honestly, who throws a sock? Apparently the answer to that question is Richard Gasquet who blew a gasket of sorts on Monday during his 4th round U.S. Open match against Milos Raonic.
