Redskins rep asked Arby’s to take down RG3 ‘Reserved Parking’ sign

Last week, an amusing tale made its way around the interwebs about how an Arby’s restaurant near the training camp site of the Washington Redskins recently put up a sign in its parking lot that reserved a space for the team’s quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

Watch a dragonfly elude a Wilton Lopez pitch in super-slow motion (video)

During a game between the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants over the weekend, a dragonfly found itself right in the path of a pitch out of the hand of Rockies relief pitcher Wilton Lopez.

Former MTV VJ Kennedy shares crazy tale about Michael Jordan

A long time ago in an era untouched by reality show drivel, MTV aired videos, and the network had people called VJs who would serve as an intermediary between viewers and said music videos.

Jay Cutler is hosting a 1980s charity dance party featuring Billy Ocean?

Wait. What? Now that is a headline that warrants a few head-scratches. But it’s true: Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari (who already clearly know how to rock it 80s-style), are holding a charity event on July 18 that features a 1980s dance theme, headlined by a special performance from one [...]The post Jay Cutler is hosting a 1980s charity dance...

D-backs' Montero licks his bats

In yet another example showcasing that baseball players are among the strangest athletes out there when it comes to bizarre habits, strange rituals and unhinged superstitions, Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was caught on video licking a couple of bats during a recent game in order to determine which bat he would use during his [...]The post Diamondbacks catcher Miguel...

How in the heck did the umpire call out Justin Morneau on this play? (video)

During the first inning of the Minnesota Twins’ 10-4 loss to the New York Yankees at Target Field on Monday night, umpire Corey Blaser ruled that the ball beat Justin Morneau to first first base on a play that under no uncertain terms should the Twins first baseman have been called out.

Purdue shirt has Notre Dame leprechaun performing ******** on Boilermaker (pic)

Being cross-state rivals, it’s not surprising that the respective fan bases of the Purdue Boilermakers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish football teams have engaged in a series of one-upmanship over the years. And while Notre Dame has held the upper hand in the quest for Indiana college football supremacy throughout the rivalry, a shirt from [...]The post Purdue shirt has Notre Dame...

It’s almost as if Washington Nationals second-year phenom was never gone. But he was and Monday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers was Harper’s first game back from the disabled list since all the way back on May 26. After receiving a warm applause from the Nationals Park faithful and on only the second pitch that [...]The post Bryce Harper returns from disabled list, hits...

Patriots offering free exchange on Aaron Hernandez jersey purchases

The New England Patriots seemed to have done just about everything in its power up to this point to not only distance the team from former tight end Aaron Hernandez and the stain he has left upon the suddenly-tarnished “Patriots Way,” but it looks like the organization has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

It was hard not to notice that Victor Oladipo was rocking the Google Glass during the 2013 NBA Draft on Thursday night. Selected 2nd overall by the Orlando Magic, the former Indiana Hoosiers star sported the Google Glass accessory throughout the evening.

Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford drops f-bombs during celebration speech (video)

In front of jubilant fans as far as the eye could see, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford gave one of best, albeit brief, profane speeches ever during the Stanley Cup championship celebration in downtown ChiTown.

Fantastic. While I won’t go so far as to say that the Miami Heat’s Shane Battier “blossomed” following his high school years, this yearbook photo from 1997 certainly makes it clear that he didn’t get uglier as he aged. Even back then, Battier definitely looks like the kind of guy who would one day make [...]The post Shane Battier’s high school yearbook photo is hilarious...

That sound you hear? That’s Herb Brooks rolling over in his grave.

For a game, while brutal in its most basic essence,  to maintain a long-standing tradition remains of shaking hands in a display of sportsmanship after a hard-fought, likely antagonistic and sometimes even downright hate-filled and vitriolic playoff series, perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks took out a full-page ad [...]The post...
