VIDEO: San Diego State's Jamaal Franklin pulled off an 'alley-oop to himself' dunk

San Diego State swingman Jamaal Franklin was the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year last season. And this is how the junior started off 2013 conference play on Wednesday night against Fresno State: Um, holy crap. He actually did the off-the-glass dunk in a real game. To start conference play, even, for the No. 16 Aztecs. That's a definite dunk of the year candidate...

Here's the first teaser trailer for 'MLB 13: The Show'

Sony has released the first trailer for MLB 13: The Show, the latest installment of the perennially awesome baseball video game series. The series is even the main reason I purchased a PS3 (the game is only available on Sony systems) a few years back, and I certainly have no regrets. The Show is that enjoyable, if you're a baseball nut like myself, anyway. And the latest installment...

Field of Dreams property sold for $3.4 million to group that includes Wade Boggs

In July 2010, I wrote about the site from Field of Dreams being up for sale. Here's part of what I said in the post: And is it just me, or does $5.4 million seem a bit "cheap" for a beautiful baseball field, on a farm, that has dead baseball legends playing on it? Even though it's located in Dyersville freaking Iowa, I feel like you could make that money back...

VIDEO: Jadeveon Clowney shows why he'll be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft

South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney is an absolute BEAST. The 6'6", 256-pound defensive end would be a virtual lock to be the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft... if he were eligible to enter the draft yet. You see, he's only a sophomore. But, barring injury (or an Andrew Luck/RG3 talent emerging at quarterback next year), he'll be the top pick of the 2014 draft...

So this certainly looks real to me, and all of the commenters on Reddit and YouTube seem to agree. I've never seen anything like this... and if this was a common thing, we'd have quite a problem. What is "this"? Oh just a golden eagle swooping down and snatching a baby (at a park in Montreal). Yep, seriously. Not making this up. The baby is fine, thankfully...

One-handed basketball player is D-I prospect

So Milton (Georgia) High School's Zach Hodskins is an absolute badass. The 6'2" guard is one of the best three-point shooters in Georgia high school basketball, and has gotten the attention of Division I college scouts. In one game this season, he drained seven three-pointers. Oh, and he's done all this with just one arm, as he was born without half of his left...

Worst. Free Throw. Ever.

Appalachian State junior center Brian Okam had what has to be the worst free throw of all-time (from anybody that has ever played basketball competitively, anyway) on Saturday against Western Carolina. See it for yourself: Spectacularly awful. It should come as no surprise that Okam and Appalchian State lost the game, and are now 1-7 on the season.  Oh, and...

Kid's unintentional funny comment about Eagles

On Tuesday, a few Philadelphia Eagles players visited a Philadelphia-area elementary school on behalf of the NFL and their 'Play 60' program, to give the school a $10,000 grant for health and wellness equipment and programming. Well, the local ABC affiliate was on hand to do a TV news report on the story, and interviewed a few children about what it was like to have Eagles players at the

That episode of 'Saved by the Bell: The New Class' where Jim Harbaugh plays Screech's cousin, Jim Harbaugh

I'm a Saved by the Bell nut, but can't say I saw too many of the Saved by the Bell: The New Class episodes. And that's a good thing, because the series was quite awful.  In the show, Mr. Belding is still the Bayside HS principal, and Screech sticks around as his assistant.

As I write this, Wisconsin is leading Nebraska 42-10 at halftime, so it's surprising that the spectacular...
