The 10 Worst Baseball Movies of All Time

No American sport is more romanticized than baseball, which is why baseball makes such a fantastic subject for movies. The audience is already primed to accept the dramatic narrative. All the filmmakers have to do is not blow it. Sadly, many filmmakers do blow it. For every classic baseball film out there—your Bull Durhams, your […]

Tour de France Cyclist Stops Mid-Race and Tells Hecklers to Shut the Hell Up (Video)

The Tour de France is the most excruciating, grueling, and painful sporting event on earth. For that reason, most of the cyclists probably don’t even notice hecklers. The only things they can hear are the tiny voices in their heads yelling, “PLEASE STOP!” However, I imagine that the few cyclists who do notice the hecklers […]

Braves Shorstop Andrelton Simmons Makes Ridiculous Force Play at Second Base (Video)

Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons hasn’t made an All-Star Game yet, but that’s only because fans choose who goes to the All-Star Game, and most fans are idiots. (Not you, though.) Anybody who knows anything about baseball knows that Simmons is one of the best defensive players in the game, if not the best. Last […]

Watch This Video of Adorable Baby Falling Asleep at Blue Jays Game, Then Send It to Your Mom (Video)

Last night in Toronto, the Blue Jays got absolutely destroyed by the Boston Red Sox. The visitors scored two in the 2nd, four in the 3rd, two in the 4th, and six in the 5th. Then, after that, there was nothing. Final score: Red Sox 14, Blue Jays 1. Obviously, it was an absolutely brutal […]

Relay Team of 90-Year-Old Men Sets World Record at U.S. Track and Field Masters Championships (Pics)

What did you do last weekend? Because a group of five 90-year-old men set three world records at the USA Track and Field Masters Outdoor Championships in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. And I’m thinking, whatever you did, it probably wasn’t that awesome. The idea was cooked up by Charles Ross, 91, of Decatur, Arkansas. “When I […]

Lionel Messi Meets Superfan Who Got a Messi Jersey Tattooed on His Back (Video)

For all you Lionel Messi fans out there, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I know how you can get your very own private meeting with the world’s greatest soccer player. The bad is that you’re going to have to get a pretty insane tattoo. We have […]

Nikki Bella Exposes Nipple to Nation’s Impressionable Youths on Monday Night Raw (Pic)

Okay everybody, this is weird. Last year, on Monday, July 22, WWE Diva Brie Bella had what the kids these days call a “wardrobe function.” That means her bare lady nipple somehow found its way out of her skimpy top during Monday Night Raw and exposed itself for all the world to see. It was […]

Yup, That 105 Year-Old Lady’s First Pitch Was Better Than 50 Cent’s (Video)

Agnes McKee (That’s right. We’re putting her name in bold now.) might not be getting a major league contract anytime soon, but that’s mostly due to salary cap implications and front office politics. Or so we would assume. Because she threw out the first pitch at Sunday’s Padres game like a champ. We have discussed […]

Johnny Manziel’s Cleveland Browns Jersey Is the Best-Selling Jersey in the League (Pics)

I guess it’s not surprising, but it’s a little…ok…it’s a little surprising that Johnny Manziel‘s jersey is the best-selling up to this point in the fiscal year. It’s also kind of cute. It’s not cute because Johny Manziel is a great dude or anything. He seems like a fun guy who is making a little […]

Alex Ovechkin and Maria Kirilenko Call Off Engagement, Leaving the World to Question Everything It Thought It Knew About Love

Russian power couple Alex Ovechkin and Maria Kirilenko have called off their high-profile engagement after a year and a half of engagement and a year and a half of dating before that. The NHL MVP and the tennis star are asking for their privacy during this time, which is sort of like me asking for […]

Arsenal Players Adopt New York Accents to Promote Upcoming Friendly, End Up Sounding Ridiculous

As bad as American’s are at British accents (which is bad), it’s surprising how bad the British are at tackling our accents. I mean, a lot more of them are watching Friends reruns than the we are watching Downton Abby or any of their crap. To be fair, it’s not just British players that don’t […]

Here’s Footage Of LeBron James Jr. Playing Hoops in Front of His Dad (Video)

When is an athlete too young to be burned with media attention? How long should a child be able to play sports in the purest way possible before being projected on to the world and saddled that come with that projection? The answers to those questions don’t matter in this instance, because we’re talking about […]

Katherine Webb Tweets Sexy Bikini Selfie While Honeymooning with A.J. McCarron, Just to Remind Us All She’s Still Hot (Pic)

In case you forgot to mark the date down on your official 2014 Alabama Crimson Tide wall calendar, A.J. McCarron and Katherine Webb tied the knot on July 12 in Orange Beach, Alabama. Of course, some people (e.g. Johnny Manziel) might wonder what on earth would possess a 23-year-old rookie NFL quarterback to settle down […]

Seattle Sounders Make Dreams Come True for 18-Year-Old Kid with Cystic Fibrosis (Video)

In recent years we’ve seen a number of heartwarming stories about coaches and players on youth sports teams going out of their way to help teammates with disabilities experience the thrill of getting into a game. We even saw the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team bring seven-year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman into their spring scrimmage and […]

The 15 Highest Paid NHL Players of 2014-15

Top hockey players don’t make anything close to what top basketball, football, or baseball players make. That being said, the NHL isn’t exactly the MLS. The salary cap for 2014-15 is a healthy $69 million, while every player in Major League Soccer combined will make just $115.3 million. So when it comes to earning power, […]

Padres Ballgirl Plays Some Gold Glove Defense, Red Sox Ball Girl Makes Epic Fail Face (Videos)

Being an MLB ballgirl is not an easy job. Some day you make great plays that get you on SportsCenter, and other days you make a fool of yourself on national television. In Boston on Saturday night, the ballgirl manning the right field line accidentally snagged a fair ball off the bat of Kansas City’s […]

Counting Fail: Orioles Center Fielder Adam Jones Loses Track of Outs, Allows Runner to Walk Home (Video)

Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is hardly the first Major League Baseball player to lose track of how many outs there are. If losing track of the outs was not a common problem in baseball, you wouldn’t see guys constantly reminding each other how many outs there are by holding up the appropriate number […]

Rory McIlroy Trolls Liverpool Fans After Winning 2014 British Open (Video)

In case you didn’t realize it, the 2014 British Open was played at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, which, as you can probably deduce, is in Liverpool. On paper that should not have been a problem for winner Rory McIlroy. He hails from just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland and, outside Caroline Wozniacki and her […]

Gambling on Your Children Pays: Rory McIlroy Wins 2014 British Open, Dad Collects $171,000 in Winnings

Over the last several years, Rory McIlroy had won 12 professional golf tournaments, including the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship. In doing so he’d become one of the top-ranked golfers in the world and a very rich man. Did that make his dad, Gerry McIlroy, proud? Probably. But it didn’t make him any coin. […]

That Kevin Love Trade Rumor Mill Is Now Going Full Force (So Many Tweets)

Now that the LeBron James shoe has dropped, and everyone else quietly sorted themselves out, the big move on everyone’s mind is: What is to become of this Kevin Love fellow? On July 12th, following Cleveland’s LeBron signing, Love declared he was “intrigued” by the idea of joining the Cavs, after having repeatedly expressed his […]
