The New Commercial for ‘Madden 15? Is Awesomely Bizarre (Video)

In recent years, EA Sports has put out some pretty funny commercials to hype the release of Madden. Last year, for example, they ran several different spots telling the (fictional) origin stories of some of the NFL’s biggest rivals. And they were fantastic. However, this year EA Sports have really outdone themselves. Their new commercial […]

9 Things You Should Know About Future MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred

Baseball’s got a new commissioner. Twenty years after the Bud Selig era began, it wound down, culminating in yesterday’s election of new top dog for baseball. The man is Rob Manfred, and we don’t know too much about him. More accurately, we don’t know many interesting things about him. We’re just now starting to learn about […]

Enormous Man Sets New World Deadlift Record, Then Owns Annoying Reporter Trying to Get an Interview 20 Seconds Later (Video)

On August 9 in Leeds, England, a colossal human being from Iceland named Benedikt Magnusson set a new world record when he deadlifted a mind-blowing 461 kg, which works out to about 1,016 pounds. And really, that alone is worthy of a post. However, it’s what Benni did immediately after setting the new world record […]

Let’s Laugh at This Angry Belgian Soccer Coach as He Falls on His Butt While Trying to Kick a Bag of Balls (Video)

Last weekend in Belgian Pro League action—that’s definitely the first time I’ve ever written that—R.S.C. Anderlecht beat Charleroi S.C. by a score of 1-0. The season is still young, so the win wasn’t much to write home about, but still, you would think Anderlecht’s manager, Besnik Hasi of Albania, would have been pleased. But that […]

Premature Celebration: French Track A-Hole Takes Off Shirt Before Race Is Even Over, Gets Disqualified (Video)

Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad is not a household name in North America because he’s French, and because steeplechase (a.k.a. that race where you have to jump over puddles) isn’t followed very closely. However, if Mekhissi-Benabbad was, say, a basketball player, I guarantee you he would be the most-hated man in sports. A few years ago, at the […]

So I Guess We’re All Supposed to Believe This 6’4? 229-Pounder at the Little League World Series Really Is 13 Years Old? (Video + Pic)

Back in 2001, a 5’8? 12-year-old with a 76 mph fastball threw the first perfect game at the Little League World Series since 1957. He would go on to strike out 62 of the 72 batters he faced, giving up just three hits in three games and giving up only one unearned run, leading his […]

Cris Carter Takes Ice Bucket Challenge, But Misses Himself and Hits Chris Berman Instead (GIF)

Have you heard about this Ice Bucket Challenge thing that all the cool people on social media are doing? Basically you dump a bucket of ice cold water on yourself, post it on social media, and it cures ALS. Plus, all your friends know what a good person you are, and you don’t even have to […]

Sammy Watkins Takes a Break from Making Ridiculous One-Handed Catches to Burn a Defender with His Sick Moves (Video)

Heading into the 2014 NFL Draft, there was an unusually high number of teams in need of a “franchise quarteback,” and for that reason most of the focus was on guys like Johnn Manziel, Blake Bortless, and Teddy Bridgewater. However, most analysts pegged Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins as the most talented and explosive offensive […]

NFL Ref Shows His Arm Strength by Chucking Flag 31 Yards Downfield (GIF)

In case you were wondering what the referee equivalent of driving a giant truck to oversell your manhood is…we found it. His name has been deemed unimportant by media covering this event, probably because referees are soulless, and acknowledging a ref’s name would be like giving a name to your desk chair or an air […]

Little Leaguer Shows the World He’s Got It All Figured Out in His Pre-Game Ritual (Tweet and Pic)

I would be quick to say that this Little Leaguer has it all figured out at a very young age, but we’d have to be naive to think that all Little League baseball players are young. In fact, given the age scandals, it’s not unreasonable to think that some might actually be retired Major League […]

NFL Quarterback Conversation on Facebook: 2014 Preseason Rookies Edition

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Fantasy football draft season is upon us while NFL teams are in the thick of their preseason schedules as they gear up for the 2014 regular season. It is an exciting time for we the fans, but it is also a pretty special time for this year’s […]

11 New York Jets Have Tinder Accounts Swipes Left

Things may not be perfect for the New York Jets right now, but it’s a pretty crazy state of affairs when about 25% of a team is using online dating as though they were regular ole’ folk, and not rich professional athletes. In an article from the Wall Street Journal, it was revealed that, as […]

Cows Invade Soccer Pitch in Peru, But at Least They Didn’t Take Any Selfies (Video)

Our culture’s lust for selfies these days is driving more and more idiot sports fans out onto playing fields in the middle of games. Was it amusing at first? Sure, I guess so. But now it’s getting pretty old. That’s why the video you’re about to watch here is so refreshing. For once, we have […]

Here’s a Spanish Track Announcer Having a Creepy Love Affair with a Competitor’s Butt (Video)

If you haven’t taken a shower today, watching this video, and listening to this announcer gush and moan over a female track athlete’s ass will probably send you running to get clean. The fact that it’s Spanish makes me want to give this guy the benefit of the doubt; that maybe he’s talking about split […]

Prancercising Is Back!!! What’s ‘Prancercising,’ You Ask…? (Video)

Filing this under “Other Sports,” but only because Total Pro Sports doesn’t have “Horseracing” or “Barnyard Role-Playing” categories.  It’s generally poor form to make fun of people for exercising in any fashion. They’re trying to better their health and themselves, so I would normally just muster up a “Good for them,” and be on my way. […]

Arizona State Football Player Chip Sarafin Comes Out as Gay

Michael Sam came out as gay to his teammates on the University of Missouri football team last year, but he didn’t come out as gay to the public until after he had declared for the NFL draft. And that meant the answer to the trivia question, “who was the first openly gay Division I college football […]

USC Song Girls Create a De Facto Wet T-Shirt Contest with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

Of all the cheerleading icons in sports, the two that serve as the best known are (probably) the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders and the USC Song Girls. While the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders are light years ahead of the USC Song Girls, it’s time for the Trojan faithful to get some more recognition. Dumping ice cold water […]

Danny Amendola Entertains Patriots Fans with Impressive Juggling and Catching Skills (Video)

You probably knew, or at least assumed, that New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola, a.k.a. the new Wes Welker, is good at catching footballs. After all, he does it at the professional level. However, you probably did not know he was this good at catching footballs. At the Patriots training camp the other day, […]

40 GIFs of Baseball Fans Making Amazing Catches

Most of the time, the best part of a baseball game happens on the field. Maybe it’s a pitcher throwing a complete game shutout. Maybe it’s a light-hitting utility infielder clearing the bases with a standup triple. Or maybe it’s something entirely unrelated to baseball, like the catcher on one team leaving a snack at home plate […]

Top Twins Prospect Byron Buxton Knocked Out Cold After Colliding with Teammate in Right Field (Video)

It’s not uncommon to see guys knocked out cold in football or hockey. It gives you chills, but players are colliding with each other at high speeds on every single play, so everyone knows it’s bound to happen. In baseball it’s a different story. You just never expect it to happen in baseball. It always […]
