Cleveland Cavaliers eye LeBron James in summer of 2014

It seems free agent speculation has surpassed the product on the court. The NBA, once a thriving and competitive sports league, has now become a high school gossip league. For the past few years, fans and players themselves seem to be more worried about what superstar they’re going to pair up and where they might play in the future. Players seem to worry more about their “brand”...

Rory McIlroy, Equipment Changes and the PGA

If you’ve been following the golf equipment endorsement changes, which I’m sure y’all haven’t, you’d have heard the news that Nike signed Rory McIlroy for, I believe, a metric ******* of money.  Huzzah!  Let’s celebrate another person’s salary together! I also am sure you’re asking me, “spencer, why in blue **** does this matter?” Well I’ll tell you why, asshole…it...

Oscar Mayer Carving Board Pulled Pork and tailgating from home

Tailgating can be a complicated process, the setup alone is a headache, and let’s not even talk about the clean up. Might as well skip that part of it and do it from home, since a parking spot is already established. But nobody wants to disappoint the people they have to feed before the big game, especially when the tailgate is taking place in your living room. The biggest ingredient...

Atlanta Hawks set new records for futility

The Hawks have been in Atlanta since 1968, but have existed as a franchise since 1949.  In those 64 seasons, the Hawks have scored 65 or fewer points 66 times.  They have failed to score 60 points just 21 times.  On Monday night, the Hawks made it an even 22 in an embarrassing 97-58 loss to the Bulls.  The pathetic offensive output is the lowest since the team moved to Atlanta...

NC State RB Shadrach Thornton is quite the entertainer

While scrolling through twitter last night, I was treated to quite a pleasant surprise.  NC State freshman running back Shadrach Thornton has apparently made it his goal to “plank” on anything and everything in and around Raleigh, NC.  Granted, I didn’t know planking was still a thing at this point, but Shad has truly made it an art form.  From the branches of trees, to...

Johnny Manziel trolls the internet while doing charity work

Hey, nobody said he had to grow up all in one day. Johnny Manziel got the last laugh on all those who have been on his case since a photo was taken of him being 20 years old at a Casino in Oklahoma. While visiting a Connecticut hospital, Manziel posed with a young cancer patient for a photo op, and the two of them flashed some play money for the camera. Manziel then posted it on...

Big 10 Conference wants to change division names

Legends and Leaders.  When the names for the Big 10(+2+2) divisions were released back in 2010, college sports fans across the US wondered just what in the blue hell Jim Delaney was thinking.  Fast forward to now, and the  Big 10(+2+2) has added two more teams (which are neither Legends nor Leaders), and the names of the divisions need to be changed.  Now Jim Delaney can’t...

Caption this – Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis

I don’t know what to say. It’s really hard to defend Peyton Manning, like I have done for years, when he seemingly shrunk late in the fourth quarter and OT in the Denver Broncos’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens. So I won’t. Instead, we can talk about this picture with Peyton and Ray Lewis at the end of the game.

It was about time Jim Dolan got himself involved with his team again.

Young Seahawks fan suffers epic meltdown

Young fan meltdowns are all the rage, and this one is pretty epic. The Seattle Seahawks had just completed an epic comeback to take a one point lead over the Falcons in their NFC Divisional match-up when Matt Ryan turned the tables on two big time throws to set-up Matt Bryant’s game-winning field goal from 49-yards. Let the heartbreak begin Cheer-up, kid. You still got the Mariners.

Video: Fran McCaffrey avoids flying footwear in Iowa win

Winning on the road in the B1G is no easy feat this year, and neither is ducking a thrown shoe. But Iowa and head coach Fran McCaffrey were able to do both while visiting Northwestern, as the Hawkeyes rolled to a 70-50 win in Evanston. Alex Marcotullio of the Wildcats had lost his shoe at the foul line extension, and Aaron White of the Iowa had the prescense to toss it off the court...

Brendon Ayanbadejo with quite possibly the worst Twitter trash talk ever

The Baltimore Ravens head to Foxboro this weekend to play their new rival, the New England Patriots. These two teams have hooked up for some entertaining games over the last few years, including last years AFC Title game in which Lee Evans dropped a sure touchdown and Billy Cundiff missed a field in the closing seconds. The Ravens went back to New England earlier in the year and...

The Odds-On Favorite: 2013 Divisional Sunday Picks

Well, the 11-0 playoff dream was short lived after going 0-2 on the Divisional Saturday Picks. At least I’ve still got a chance to finish the postseason over .500 with two more wins in the final five playoff games, including today. Let’s be honest – I don’t think too many people saw the Colin Kapernick experience being this incredible, and certainly not doing what he did...

Video: Trindon Holliday opens second half with record 104-yard kickoff return for TD

Hard to believe that Denver Broncos’ return man Trindon Holliday was picked up off the scrap heap. Earlier, Holliday set an NFL playoff record with a 90-yard punt return for a TD. He followed that up by opening the 2nd-half kickoff for an NFL record 104-yard return for TD

The Odds-On Favorite: 2013 Divisional Saturday Picks

Well, the dream of an 11-0 playoffs is still alive, at least for now.  The Wild Card round started off with a 4-0, once the Vikings made it official that they would be starting a punt returner at Quarterback. So now we come to the first two games of Divisional weekend, trying desperately to keep my head above water.  Here goes nothing… Disclaimer: Gambling on sports is illegal...

Report: Lance Armstrong to admit to Oprah about doping

For the past week or so, rumors have persisted that Lance Armstrong was having internal discussions with those closest to him about admitting to doping. That in itself would appear to be an admission, but until he goes public with it, he will never be able to move forward. Now comes a report that in a planned sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, that Armstrong will admit to doping...

She went on to capture 4-gold medals and a bronze, including 2 world records, while flashing what could be a million-dollar smile. I say could be, because Franklin passed on turning pro and endorsement...

The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) is a joke.

Instead of focusing on America’s pastime, they’ve taken to riding their award-winning high horses around to prove their...
