Before we get to what you see above, first the backstory. Over the weekend, Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy wrote a piece with a byline that read, “Bobby Valentine sounds like a manager who doesn’t care if he gets fired.” Of course, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine caught wind of Shaughnessy’s claim.

NBC runs promo touting interview with gold medal winner Missy Franklin before actually showing race she won gold in

NBC has decided to tape delay many of the big events and show them in prime time. We don’t particularly like it, but we understand. It’s all about making the money. And though, we have to deal with results being spoiled by journalists in London and Twitter, the last thing we thought we would have to deal with is NBC themselves spoiling results. But that’s exactly what happened...

Tim Tebow wants you to believe that he’s surprised reporters filmed him as he ran past them shirtless in the rain

If you missed it over the weekend, Tim Tebow set off an internet firestorm when he ran shirtless in the rain after Saturday’s practice. No matter what Tim Tebow wants you to believe, it’s quite obvious he knew what he was doing. For one, practice is over. He doesn’t HAVE TO run. He just WANT to. Which is fine. But c’mon man, it’s raining. Go on inside like the rest of your...

Rex Ryan is the best defensive coach in football according to Rex Ryan

Rex Ryan is a talker. That’s just what he does. Whether it’s proclaiming the Jets to be the favorites to win the Super Bowl or flat out guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory, talking (and being wrong) is just his thing. So it shouldn’t surprise you that he’s starting off this season talking once again. But this time, he’s shying away from the team orientated declarations. Guess...

Don’t laugh, but Lakers big man Pau Gasol is feeling good this summer. So good that he’s calling himself “a beast” over in London.
