Even with new rule, Bucs will probably still face blackouts

To say that it is easy to find an available ticket on Sundays in Tampa would be an understatement. In fact, only the very few that actually showed up to Raymond James Stadium the last several seasons are the ones that actually saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play football, as just about every game has [...]

Another Spygate Super Bowl ring ends up on eBay

It seems those that were with the New England Patriots when they won the Super Bowl in 2001 are in need of a quick cash score. For the second time in the last two years, a Super Bowl ring from that win has landed on the online auction site, eBay. There was a ring that [...]

There is a sixth Olympic ring now

Now the only question will be what country has the color of the moon in their flag? This awesome photo was snapped by a Reuters photographer, and couldn’t have been more perfect.  You almost have to wonder if the Olympic Committee in London knew that there was a chance that it could line up perfectly [...]

Video: Mexican soccer team breaks out Luchadores celebration

The one thing that soccer has over football are the celebrations after scoring. I somewhat understand the “act like you’ve been there before” mentality that some have, but I also completely disagree with the No Fun League approach. Check out this Mexican Monterrey striker Angel Reyna bust out a hurricanrana on his teammate in celebration [...]

Woman in pajamas loses it at ARod owned Mercedes dealership

I am not sure what is the more shocking. That a woman, dressed to the nines in her pajamas, trashed a Mercedes dealership which is owned by New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, or that ARod actually owns a Mercedes dealership. I guess we should keep the focus on the nut. I mean the [...]

Earl Campbell: All the running backs look average

Ever since the Cleveland Browns made the decision to select Trent Richardson with the #3 overall pick on this years NFL Draft, former Browns’ all-time great Jim Brown has referred to his as ordinary.

Justin Durant would eat Chick-fil-A even if they supported slavery

The Chick-fil-A controversy isn’t ready to go away, and most likely never will. The fast food chain will be forever known for their chicken, religious beliefs, and their anti-gay marriage stance.

Pennsylvania car has 'Tebowin' license plate

Not sure if this guy is on his way home from NY Jets training camp, but I think it is safe to assume he has more of an allegiance to Tim Tebow than anyone else. Note the stick alongside the “TEBOWIN” license plate, just in case anyone was confused about what it said. H/T Deadspin

This umpire does not take being yelled at

A couple of days ago, a video surfaced of an umpire throwing a fit and ejecting a PA announcer for playing “Three Blind Mice” after a bad call.   Today we bring you the antithesis. That’s right, it’s the coach’s turn to go on an ego trip. Mind you, this guy is the coach of [...]

Ryan Lochte just did what every swimmer does

This is a little dirty secret that everyone should know. The pool is full of piss. It’s true. I say this because it did not shock me to hear what Ryan Lochte told Ryan Seacrest in regards to where he goes to the bathroom. “I sure did in warm-up.” “I think there’s just [...]

He was best known for trash-talking Michael Phelps prior to the Olympics, but now Tyler Clary is known as an Olympic gold medalist, after coming from behind to win the 100m backstroke in yesterday’s competition.

While Roger Goodell battles lawsuits, a referee work stoppage, player arrests, and a myriad of other scrutiny, he is happens to be the commissioner of the most popular sport in the entire country.

Australian Newspaper renames North and South Korea

A free daily commuter newspaper in Australia, mX, decided to have a little fun with the names of North and South Korea, and renamed them in the Olympic medal count standings. That’s a pretty accurate description of them.  This newspaper isn’t a serious publication, so there is little chance that anyone is going to be [...]

Audio: Bobby Valentine is not a fan of Buster Olney’s work

It’s an open secret up here in the Boston area that Bobby Valentine is not long for the big job in the Red Sox’ dugout.  His players despise him.  Ownership doesn’t have his back.  Most fans (myself included) never wanted him hired in the first place.  And if you hadn’t heard, the Red Sox aren’t [...]

After dropping their second straight to the pathetic Minnesota Twins, the Orioles had fallen to 46-44. After being 39-27 and on top of the world, the O’s had lost 17 of their last 24 games. I assumed that the eventual freefall that O’s fans have become accustomed to had begun and another 90 loss season [...]
