Little League Ump from the Bahamas Performs Funky Dances Between Pitches (Video)

In case the differences in cultures weren’t apparent between the Caribbean, especially laid-back Bahamas, and those stiff, uptight Americans, look no further than the way our umpires move. In America, they…they don’t move. They sit there, and the most we’ll get out of them is a gruff “Yerrr out!”—if we’re lucky. It’s pretty oppressive. In […]

In Just Ten Years, the Olympic Venues in Athens Have Started to Look Like Ruins (Pics)

The 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece were quite reminiscent of the Brazil World Cup in terms of infrastructure. Many people doubted the ability of the country to pull off such a high-profile and costly event, and those doubters were nearly proven correct, as Greece didn’t get much of the construction done until the 11th […]

Paul Bissonnette Used a Helicopter and a Glacier for an Epic ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been a fun little viral video trend that’s promoted awareness and charitable donations towards the disease ALS. Most of the people in these videos take a cooler full of ice and water, and dump it on their heads. Most of these people are not as tough as current NHL free […]

Some Things You Can Never Un-See, Like This Clip of Steve Spurrier Dancing (GIF)

The last time we checked in on the Ole’ Ball Coach, Steve Spurrier, he was fondly recollecting how he jerked off a lot of players in the locker room. A month or so later, it looks like he’s having a different type of fun: dancing. And not dancing like “the robot” or “TURN DOWN FOR […]

Iranian Wrestler Breaks from Leg-Hold with ‘Matrix’-like Escape Move (Video)

The two guys wrestling here are named Iman Sadeghikoukandeh (Iran) and Rashidov Gadzhimurad (Russian). Stemming from a desire to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome by typing their names, I’m going to keep this brief:  The Iranian wrestler (see above for his name) had his leg held high by the Russian wrestler (ditto), when all of a sudden, he […]

Yasiel Puig Nearly Hits Matt Kemp with an Angry Bat Flip (Video)

Yasiel Puig has his own style about him, and a big part of his chill approach to the game of baseball is his signature bat flip (normally) upon getting walked. However, tossing a bat isn’t all fun and games. It’s a flying piece of lumber. So what we call a bat “flip” when Yasiel Puig […]

Cowboys and Raiders Brawl Twice at Their Joint Practice, to No One’s Surprise (Video)

I don’t know what coaches expect to get out of joint practices, but fans know exactly what to expect: fights. Tensions are high enough with roster cuts and pecking orders in internal practices; adding another team into the goings-on of preseason essentially turns the practice into the first day of prison. Speaking of “prison,” the […]

NWO Reunites to Celebrate Hulk Hogan’s 61st Birthday on ‘Monday Night Raw’ (Video)

For his 61st birthday, Hulk Hogan was reunited with other former members of the WCW’s now-defunct NWO in Portland during the WWE’s Monday Night Raw last night. Are you still reading? Ok. Good. In addition to somehow fitting the event into the busy schedules of “Mean” Gene Okerlund and Ric Flair, the WWE was also able […]

An MMA Fighter Named ‘War Machine’ Was Arrested For Assaulting His Ex-Girlfriend (Graphic Pics)

If you’re feeling good today, and want to keep that feeling going, maybe you shouldn’t read on. Maybe you should read and watch this. It’s funny. However, this IS, sadly, news, and it happened in the world of sports, so… Jon Koppenhaver, better known as War Machine in some MMA circles, is currently not in […]

Sports Anchor Lives Out Our Dreams, Punches Videobomber During Interview (GIF)

Pro tip: Don’t interrupt sports director Mike Zambelli while he does his job. He takes his interviews—even at suburban Pennsylvania music festivals—very seriously, and if you interrupt him to get on camera, he will take you DOWN. Here’s a GIF of Zambelli talking to some guy (possibly about their mutual love for royal blue polo […]

Landon Donovan Wallows in Denial with James Harden in this Hilarious Foot Locker Commercial (Video)

“When life hands you lemons, you turn that shit into a self-deprecating Foot Locker commercial.” That’s Landon Donovan‘s approach, apparently, as he teams up with James Harden to make fun of the fact that he, as captain, got cut from the U.S. National team prior to the World Cup. Landon actually gives a great comedic […]

Jimmy Fallon Gives Us ‘Tonight Show Superlatives’ for the PGA Championship Field (Video)

There’s so much to make fun of in golf, I’m not sure where to begin. As such, I’ll let Jimmy Fallon get the ball rolling as he tosses his book of “Tonight Show Superlatives” at the colorful cast of characters in the PGA Championship, which took place this weekend at Valhalla in Louisville, KY. It’s been a […]

Tigers Bat Boy Takes a Spill While Trying to Run and Catch a Shinguard (Video)

It’s been a rough week for Detroit fans. Justin Verlander, who is known for being the poster boy for good health, has said that he’s “nervous” about his upcoming shoulder MRI as the Tigers are just a half-game back from the Royals in their division. So, the last thing the team needed was another injury. But […]

13 Sports Teams Named After Sharks

In case you didn’t realize it, it’s Shark Week.You should have realized it, of course, because it’s basically the third-best week of the year after the week between Christmas and New Years and spring break. But I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you’ve been really busy at work, or you belong to some weird […]

Bills Fans Are the Drunkest Fans, Says Guy Who Wrote Book

In 2013, author Sean MacDonald spent four months driving across America so he could visit all 32 NFL stadiums (yes, MetLIfe counts twice).  And the result was a book—MacDonald’s first—called Ultimate Football Road Trip. Now that book is out, and of all the things MacDonald had to say in those 288 pages, apparently the most […]

The Routine that Won the 2014 World Yo-Yo Contest Will Blow Your Mind (Video)

Yes, there is such a thing as the World Yo-Yo Contest. This year over 1,000 competitors from more than 30 countries gathered in Prague to take part. And, just like the FIFA World Cup, it’s sponsored by Budweiser. So while it’s no Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, it’s still kind of a big thing. That […]

Check Out the World’s First (and Second) Ever Triple Backflip on a Mountain Bike (Video)

You might not be all that knowledgeable about BMX or the laws of physics, and I’m certainly no expert. But from what I do know about these subjects, let me assure you: landing a triple backflip on a mountain bike is hard. Landing a single backflip on a BMX bike is easy for someone who […]

Pacers Star Paul George Switches to No. 13 to Attain Adorable Nickname “PG-13?

Last year, in his annual ranking of the 50 most valuable players in the NBA, ESPN analyst and Grantland writer/mastermind Bill Simmons suggested Pacers star Paul George change his number from 24 to 13. The reasoning? He could then brand himself “PG-13? and become a household name. Of course, what Simmons did not know at […]

Old Dude Makes Incredible Catch on Home Run at Wrigley, Throws Back Dummy Ball (Video + GIF)

Yesterday at Wrigley Field, Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds crushed a 94-MPH fastball from Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, sending it into orbit on a trajectory headed for Waveland Avenue. However, that ball never touched down on Waveland Avenue. And the reason for this is that an older gentleman wearing a Cubs jersey (tucked snugly into […]

Texans Cheerleaders Make Awesome Parody Video Inspired by Hilarious Arian Foster Interview (Video)

Last season, as the losses and humiliation piled up, eventually turning into an uncontrollable tire fire, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster stopped talking to the local media. And while you can’t blame him for not wanting to be asked “Why do you suck so bad?” fifty times a day, the rules are the rules: […]
