PHOTO: Introducing the NHL playoffs drinking game!

I am a big fan of sports-related drinking games. My personal favorite is during football season, having to drink whenever Jon Gruden says “this guy” when calling a game. Everyone is unconscious by the fourth quarter. Below is a creative drinking game for the NHL playoffs, and if the rules are followed, expect some people to end up praying to the porcelain god by game’s end!

Joe Rogan: Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather

There are things some people say that just make me question their intelligence.

Kevin Gilbride on Eli Manning declining: “Ludicrous.”

(Credit: surgxsportsblitz.com) It is normal for a coach to come to the defense of one of his players, but they don’t do it out of pity. New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is firmly in the corner of his quarterback Eli Manning, although it would be easy for Gilbride to deflect the blame onto Manning for the Giants’ poor 2013 season. Although Manning tossed 27...

ABC reports a story from 2003.

The sports reporting business moves at a rapid-fire pace. Mishaps happen here and there, but you wouldn’t expect them from nationally syndicated outlets. ABC apparently didn’t get that memo, as late last month they reported a story from 2003. Jeff Garcia’s irrelevant time with the Browns in 2003 is apparently a big deal.

Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper is on the precipice of being a star at only 21 years old. Some baseball aficionados would say he’s a star right now.
