When Italy’s Alessandro Diamanti was lining up to take a penalty kick in the England-Italy match at Euro 2012 on Sunday, astute television viewers might have noticed a guy wearing an England kit and a red and white wig standing behind England goaltender Joe Hart. Even more keen-eyed onlookers might have picked up on the [...]
Australian Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice has come under fire from some people for posting a semi-racy photo of herself modeling a swimsuit to her Twitter account.
Hoo boy. Bear Bryant is probably spinning in his grave right now. Roll Tide, indeed. There are things a man getting up there in years should never do: one thing is wear jerseys of their favorite sports teams. Another is to lip sync to bubbly pop songs more appropriately geared to a younger listening audience. [...]
If it wasn’t already difficult enough for the Tampa Bay Rays to attract fans to its decrepit ballpark, Tropicana Field, to root, root, root for the home team, marketing folks are now faced with dealing with yet another deterrent: fans being struck with what police have deemed a “falling bullet.” Charles Sweatt, 54, a police [...]
You might be asking yourself, “What in the heck is a vertical run?” Unbeknownst to me prior to coming across the video, I would have had no idea, either. But apparently, “extreme sports competitor” Marc Sluszny, a 50-year-old Belgian, has broken the world record for the 100-meter vertical run during a trot down the Belgacom [...]
Utility man Brent Lillibridge has had an eventful few days since he was shipped to the Red Sox by the White Sox in the Kevin Youkilis trade on Sunday, but even given the frenzied nature of having his life uprooted and being forced to relocate doesn’t necessarily excuse the 28-year-old from understanding the difference between [...]
Yes, another day, another opportunity to publish brand-spanking-new content related to Kate Upton. Today, thanks to the fine folks at GQ — who just so happen to be featuring Miss Upton as the cover girl for its July 2012 issue — I have been made privy to a new video, ‘The Many Talents of Kate [...]

Former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson said he'd rather be in the Hall of Fame than have a Super Bowl ring than vice versa.
Members of Engineering Club from Kohler High School in Wisconsin — nearby the Whistling Straits golf course, the site of the 2010 PGA Championship (the more you know) — recently competed in an event called “Project Grill” along with other schools throughout the region. Their submission? A replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee [...]
We have long enjoyed the off-court antics of Steve Nash here at SoB. From his phenomenal vitaminwater ads, his many soccer-related comedy bits, his brilliant appearance as a “short, older Canadian basketball player” on Space Ghost Coast to Coast to his one-time awesome Twitter avatar, Nash has consistently brought the funny, the rare pro athlete [...]
Mere days after her sexily patriotic photo spread and cover girl status for the July 2012 issue of GQ melted monitors and whipped the internet world up into a frenzy, Kate Upton has once again showed us why she is the “It Girl” of the year with a fantastic photo shoot for the July 2012 [...]
According to the show's executive producer, Kim Kardashian appeared to be interested in the Redskins quarterback during a taping of 30 Rock's live season finale.
Far be it from me to criticize the manner in which another person elects to celebrate one of the crowning achievements of their life, but unfortunately for Chris Bosh, his celebratory champagne shower in the locker room following the Miami Heat securing the franchise’s second NBA title (and first for LeBron and Bosh) is something [...]
That fact that Cleveland’s News Channel5 meteorologist Mark Johnson didn’t completely go off the deep end and murder his entire fellow news team members in a fit of psychotic rage should be considered a blessing. Although it may have been an act, or at the minimum a bit of hamming it up on his part, [...]
Shaquille O’Neal: making videobombing scalptastic. During ESPN’s postgame coverage of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Shaq, who works for TNT and NBATV but is not in the em\ploy of the Worldwide Leader in Sports, nevertheless made his presence felt despite his lack of affiliation with that particular network when he swooped on to the [...]
Of course, NMA World Edition was right on top of recapping the NBA Finals with their patented Taiwanese animation treatment and of course again, it focused upon LeBron finally seizing his first NBA title. The video itself is self-explanatory — at least as much as any NMA World Edition animated video can be expected to [...]
This hilarious photo of a portrait LeBron took with his sons first surfaced way back in September 2010, only a scant few months after King James took his talents to South Beach, but the low quality of the photo still resonates. Seriously, it really does look like a portrait taken at the photography studio in [...]
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow will be hosting Jockey’s “Hot City Cool Down” fashion show in the Outdoor Pavilion at the Orlando Premium Outlets facility on Friday, June 22 at 3:00 p.m. with a second showing at 4:00. I imagine the presence of Tim Tebow at a mall in his home state will be [...]
Happy happy joy joy, eh? Afterward, Michael Wilbon called them “knuckleheads” and did some NBA name-dropping, probably involving going out to dinner with Magic Johnson or something. Oh, I kid, I kid. As mentioned in the reddit thread, is that really Tony Kornheiser or a cardboard cutout? He hasn’t appeared that stoic since his high [...]
The lovely and talented Erin Andrews made an appearance in Sin City on Wednesday night for the 2012 NHL Awards show gala. The leggy Andrews did not disappoint, either, rocking a stunning gold dress that showed off how she must be working extremely hard in the gym as of late. Andrews was on-hand to present [...]
And it’s not even soccer-related, per se. Nevertheless, there are provocative soccer headlines and there are provocative soccer headlines. Actually, I’m not entirely certain what would constitute a provocative soccer headline normally, but the one above fits the bill. If you haven’t been following the wild world of sports-related psychic predictions of farm animals, you [...]
Once again, much like in early May — and all points in between – Miss Kate Upton is enjoying a pretty nice week. First, there was the deafening buzz generated over her snagging the July GQ cover, now she’s about to set the interwebs ablaze once again with this video of her doing the Cat [...]
WHAT IS GLOVE?
Your browser does not support iframes. Home runs were flying off the bats of Arizona Diamondbacks players on Wednesday at Chase Field — six in all total, including one of the inside-the-park variety by Ryan Roberts in the team’s 14-10 win over the Seattle Mariners. But of all the balls that left the park, a [...]
A Padres ball girl made an incredible catch over the railing during San Diego’s matinee match-up with Texas on Wednesday afternoon. And while it was certainly an impressive catch and worthy of praise, the borderline creepy reactions by the Padres broadcasting team might have been a little much, in particular the response to the play [...]
SWEET SASSY MOLASSEY
The horror…the horror… Wearing a generous amount of body paint and little else — save for a Speedo that was hopefully read its Last Rites and placed upon a funeral pyre and burned — Miami Herald columnist, radio personality and ESPN talking head Dan LeBatard made good on a bet he made with TNT NBA [...]
