Kobe Bryant on point guard play: ‘I’m like Neo out this mother‘ (video)

If one were to attempt to put an overall label on the season thus far for the Los Angeles Lakers, perhaps “soap opera” would be most fitting. Cluster[expletive] may also be an apt description, but I only chose to use that profane label because I just finished watching the video of Kobe Bryant in which he drops “mother[expletive]” and it got me in the mood for some f-bomb...

McGwire autographs fan’s prosthetic leg

Legendary slugger and possible juicer Mark McGwire moved on from his hitting coach duties with the St. Louis Cardinals in November to fill the same position on the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And when you head West out to La La Land and its hippy dippy environs, even typically mundane events such as an autograph signing session can get weird in a hurry. On Monday,...

These childhood photos of Super Bowl XLVII participants are amusing (photos)

Not much setting up needed for this one. World Wide Interweb has tracked down and compiled some photos of San Francisco 49ers players (and their head coach, Jim Harbaugh) and Baltimore Ravens players (and their coach, John Harbaugh) as they were when they were much, much younger, long before these men were preparing to play in all likelihood the biggest game of their lives on the...

Athletes wear them a lot, so here’s Kate Upton modeling some shoes (photos)

See how I tried to justify this pictorial spread of the lovely and talented Miss Kate Upton modeling shoes for the Sam Edelman footwear brand by pointing out that athletes wear shoes, too, so it is more than fitting to post these pics on a sports blog? Granted, the logic employed is loaded with flaws — most athletes don’t wear the kind of high-heeled, glamorous shoes Upton is...

On Tuesday night, beloved and gifted actor Morgan Freeman was in attendance for the basketball game between Kentucky and Ole Miss in Oxford. And while the No. 16-ranked Runnin’ Rebels were unable to defend their home court against the Wildcats, losing 87-74, the loss did not appear to prevent Mr. Freeman from at least having a good time during some portion of the night’s festivities...

Goofy dancing fan during USA-Canada friendly is goofy, was dancing (video)

Apparently, Team USA and Team Canada engaged in a match of a friendly nature on Tuesday evening in Houston. To add to the boring outcome of the 0-0 tie, it was raining. But rain, nor maybe sleet or even snow would have dampened this US fan’s spirits. He’s like the US Postal Service employee of goofy dancing soccer fans. Or whatever. No matter how you wish to refer to him, as...

Bow-chicka-nah-nah: CBS rejects this harmless Pornhub Super Bowl ad (SFW vid)

In a move that hardly can be considered surprising, CBS has said, “Thanks, but no thanks” to a proposed Pornhub Super Bowl ad for inclusion in the commercials to be aired during the network’s broadcast of Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3.

Mark Teixeira will be making a cameo appearance in ‘Rock of Ages’ on Broadway

With spring training still weeks away and with major league ballplayers chomping at the bit to head south in order to begin preparations for the regular season, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that some of them are willing to do just about anything to fill up these last conceivably grueling moments without baseball.

Jim Harbaugh refers to a popular social networking site as ‘The Tweeter’ (vid)

Jim Harbaugh doesn’t understand all this highfalutin internets hogwash, consarnit! One way to demonstrate to the world that you have no idea nor understanding of what something is or its impact on the world, it is by placing the article “the” in front of the name of it when there is no need for its inclusion. What can really drive the point home that a person might be out of...

49ers tight end Vernon Davis asked inane question by some half-wit (video)

Poor, poor Vernon Davis. As long as there have been Super Bowl Media Days as it currently exists in its bloated form, there have been individuals who somehow manage to secure media access to the three-ring circus. And then, in a manner that only true wisenheimers can accomplish, proceed to ask ridiculous questions of the assembled coaching staff and players. Sometimes, it works brilliantly...

  Many argue that the world of youth sports has been ruined by hyper-competitiveness, overzealous coaching and nutso parents. And in many respects, it is difficult to dispute that assessment. But if you did care to argue the finer points of demise of the joy that should be inherent to youth sports, you’d be best advised not to call upon this youth hockey coach and ask him to jump...

The Dallas Stars were in Ohio on Monday night to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets. While the game was light on offense and the Stars came up short on the road, losing to the hometown squad by a score of 2-1, little blame can be laid at the feet of Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen.

The gang on TNT’s Inside the NBA always seem to be having far too much fun while doing their jobs, nearly to the point that it should make the rest of us jealous.
