Donald Trump has it out for Mark Cuban

The ever-talkative Donald Trump has a new nemesis, and this time it’s a fellow entrepreneur in Mark Cuban. Trump apparently thought that Cuban’s show Shark Tank was cancelled, and sent him a demeaning letter, which Cuban read aloud on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Naturally, Trump mustered up his twitter courage and keeps giving Cuban a hard time. I love watching dummy @mcuban...

Bill Simmons gives his take on “awful and embarrassing” First Take segment

Richard Sherman of the Seahawks went on First Take to “debate” Skip Bayless, but ended up making things personal and essentially telling him off. Bill Simmons, who was recently named the most powerful man in sports media by Sports Illustrated, gave his take on the debacle. It’s amazing to me that people get so worked up about First Take. Who cares? Just don’t watch it. There...

Matt Barnes weighs in on Serge Ibaka’s non-suspension

In a decision that surprised many, Serge Ibaka was fined $25,000 and not suspended for his hit to the most valuable region of Blake Griffin. Matt Barnes, who was suspended in February for repeatedly shoving Greg Stiemsma, didn’t like that Ibaka wasn’t suspended. You can INTENTIONALLY grab or hit someone in the balls & not get suspended, but you push someone & get suspended...

After tweeting about the Longhorns’ thrilling comeback victory over Oklahoma, he was greeted by James Fraschilla, son of ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla, in a retorting manner.

Ravens to Make Own Super Bowl Shuffle Video

The original Super Bowl Shuffle was one of those things that should have stayed in its respective decade. The 1985 Chicago Bears momentarily murdered music despite reaching #41 on the Billboard Hot 100. But, whether it be our fascination with retro or our collective lack of creativity, we still continue to bring things like the Super Bowl Shuffle back into our culture. We may be...

Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis go at it in Twitter feud

Before this past season Darrelle Revis was considered the consensus number one cornerback in the NFL, but an injury in 2012 and the emergence of Richard Sherman and an argument has come to fruition. The two jawed on twitter today about who was better, with Sherman bringing up a couple of incorrect statistics into the mix. Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks...

Jose Canseco and Bill Nye the Science Guy are Beefing

And no, I’m not kidding. In probably the lamest feud of this decade, Jose Canseco and Bill Nye the Science Guy have exchanged words and arguments regarding — you guessed it — science. It all started when Canseco got to thinking about gravity. Canseco stated that “ancient gravity” was weaker than our current gravity. Ya know, 2013 gravity; that good stuff: Ancient gravity...

Dodgers’ Official Twitter Takes Shot at Yankees; Yankees Respond

There has been a problem — an epidemic of sorts — that has plagued the Twitter accounts of many corporations.

Rangers Fans Plan Surprise for Josh Hamilton in their Home Opener

Even though the man produced mammoth blasts (upwards of four in one game), drove in runs, and inspired many, fans of the Texas Rangers were slowly getting tired of Josh Hamilton towards the end of the 2012 season as he appeared to mail-in performances both at the plate and in the outfield. And still, Hamilton was the biggest free agent this offseason. And, of course, he jetted-away...

If you saw #Oscaring trending today you might assume it to be about Oscar Pistorius, except for the fact that it was a promoted trend by Sprint. While Pistorius being charged with murder is one of the biggest stories of the year, the Oscar Academy Awards will be taking place on February 24th. The PR department at Sprint apparently consists of a bunch of manatees pushing around idea...
