Metta World Peace just speaks his mind

Ron Artest, errrrr, Metta World Peace, please don’t ever change. The artist formerly known as Ron Artest has a history littered with off the cuff comments that are questionable, and actions that are borderline irredeemable (we all remember what happened way back that night in The Palace). Metta World Peace has become a voice for [...]

Royce White’s anxiety keeps him out of camp

Before the NBA Draft this past summer, one of the biggest questions was where Iowa State’s Royce White would end up. White’s talent was unquestionable; however, his struggles with an anxiety disorder were also well documented. Most notably, White has a crippling fear of flying. This issue seems quite problematic when your job requires you [...]

Video: LFL refs get treatment worse than the replacements

I really do believe that the Lingerie Football League is completely scripted like the WWE, from the over reacting coaches that brawl, to the actual overall outcome of the game. I also think the announcers are in on it as well, and might even be fed lines while on the air, ala Vince McMahon to [...]

Adam Greenberg to get his own baseball card

0-1, 1 Strikeout, 0.000 BA. That is how Miami Marlins one at bat pinch-hitter Adam Greenberg’s Topps rookie baseball card will read on the back. Topp’s announced on Wednesday that they will make a baseball card for Adam Greenberg. Their claim, “Adam Greenberg @Marlins embodies dedication, hard work & persistence.” They also left out the [...]

Long ‘Nationals’ nightmare is over – Teddy won the 4th inning Presidential Race

Futility is finally coming to an end with the entire Washington Nationals organization. The organization, going back to their days as the Expos, broke a 31-year playoff drought, by clinching the NL East title a week ago, for their first postseason berth since Ronald Reagan ended his first year as President in midst of a [...]

R.A. Dickey’s magical season happened while nursing an adominal tear

The truth is, if he threw the ball faster than 70 MPH, it is likely that New York Mets starter, R.A. Dickey, wouldn’t have continued pitching this season. That doesn’t make this any less remarkable, however. The knuckleball specialist, who has put together a Cy Young worthy season while compiling 20 wins and leading the [...]

Can the Red Sox win their 70th game of the season?

Today marks the final day of the long and winding road known as baseball’s regular season. With that in mind we could see the end of one of the greatest runs in baseball history as Bobby Valentine tapes up what could be his last lineup card inside the Yankees visiting dugout. The Red Sox are [...]

With his career over, Jim Tressel turns to television

With such a peaceful career coming to a violent ending, Jim Tressel has been lost in his post football apocalyptic world. If you’ll recall, he took a fake job at Akron earlier this year. Those fake university jobs are usually pointless and require very little work from someone who was used to making stool at [...]

Bobby Valentine involved in bike wreck

Bobby Valentine is an avid cyclist. Yesterday, he took to his bike before his game against the Yankees. Like many visitors to the Big Apple, he felt the best place to partake in this activity was in New York’s Central Park. Somewhere along this ride he received a text from Dustin Pedroia, and like many [...]

Glen Davis outs Dwight Howard’s ability to fart

Monday was Orlando Magic media day for the reformed squad. It was the media’s first chance to beat the current players (several of which, weren’t on the team last year) with questions about Dwight Howard. Fair? Probably not. Those that have been in the locker room the last year are probably glad the whole charade [...]

With Santonio Holmes injury, is it finally Tebow Time?

Everyone wants to know when Rex Ryan is going to pull the plug on Mark Sanchez as the New York Jets QB, as he has been pretty terrible this year, save for the Bills game, and has shown little progression since his rookie season in 2009. The Jets traded for Tim Tebow in the offseason, [...]

Video: This kid has aspirations of being a Pittsburgh Steeler

He is only 9-years-old, but this kid already is doing his best to emulate members of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions with his play. Check out #11, the big kid. He was suspended a game for his dirty play. How often does a youth football player get suspended for dirty play? His coach [...]

Brandon Lloyd smiled for the camera like he was riding a roller coaster

Remember when you were a kid (before your back hurt) and you would go on roller coasters and when you finally got off the ride there was always that over-priced picture hut waiting for you to look at the dumb face you were making mid-ride? Then you would go wait another hour and half because [...]

The Weekend That Was College Football: Week 5

Uneventful. Drab. Score-e-ey. That was Week 5 in a nutshell. One “major” upset. A lot of hum-drum performances. It all means one thing, the next week will be AWESOME. We’ll get to Showdown-a-polooza-faire Saturday presented by Captain D’s later this week. For now, they did play football on Saturday. I’ll take my steak sandwich sans [...]

Video: Thomas DeCoud’s Cat Game is strong

Via Shutdown Corner, we get video of Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud pulling off an impressive Cat Game rendition from Super Troopers, with 14 “meows” during an interview on ESPN.  We can only assume that Dunta Robinson was standing nearby as the interview was taking place, keeping count, and informing DeCoud that he needed one more [...]

Video: Woody Johnson is more concerned about Mitt Romney than the Jets

Hard to believe we are only a little more than a month away from our Presidential election, but we will have to make a decision between republican hopeful, Mitt Romney, and current POTUS, Barack Obama. New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, is a staunch Romney supporter, and is much more concerned about his potential candidacy, [...]

Video: Hockey Celebration fail

It might have seemed like a good idea (no it didn’t) to fly into the glass as a way to celebrate a goal, and that is exactly what Taylor Cox of the New Jersey Junior Titans did in this junior hockey league game. The glass had other ideas. Lambeau Leap, it is not.

RGIII takes time after win to ‘Griffin’ with Olympic bronze medalist

It is good to be Robert Griffin III. The rookie is playing outstanding football for the Washington Redskins, has managed to draw the ire of the NFL while promoting his endorsers, and even has his own meme. “Griffining” is all the rage, though it hasn’t quite reached levels of “Tebowing.” But give it time.

Head coach, Nick Saban, wanted to make certain that the team didn’t over look Ole Miss, simply because they are, Ole Miss.
