  1. Yo, Adrien: For $139K, you could own Rocky’s South Philly home

    Mar 15, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT


    Rocky buffs, ready your bank accounts. The 90-year-old home that Rocky lived in with his family during Rocky II is finally on the market after the lady who lived there ever since it was used in the movie passed away. And this house isn’t priced at some astronomical celebrity rate, helped by the fact that…

  2. Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he lost $900K on that last play of the Packers-Seahawks game

    Advisor Ellerbe and boxer Mayweather Jr. pose during a news conference at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas

    Remember that play that basically killed off the replacement referees and sent most of the NFL into a ruckus, mostly directed at Roger Goodell, who has definitely started to look sadder over the years from all of his errors in commissionership. But his biggest gaffe may have been his stubborn reluctance to work out a deal…

  3. PSA: Do not harass boxers over Twitter because they will track down your house and try to annihilate you

    Mar 14, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT


    This is the story of the keyboard warrior who found himself hiding out in his house from British boxer Curtis Woodhouse, who got so upset at the tweets of torment that he tracked down our nerdy antagonist and literally called him out into the street. Result: a troll who has learned a very important lesson…

  4. If you’re tired of insulting yourself, Adidas and Google have unveiled shoes that will do it for you (video)

    It’s South by Southwest week in Austin, Texas, and that means misguided but earnest attempts at unveiling products that advance our culture. Google has a tentative hit with their ‘Google Glasses’, a version of which is to be released to the general public later this year. To go on that theme, they teamed with Adidas…

  5. See through the helmetcam of a dude who fell 100 feet down a mountain… and survived!? (video)

    Mar 13, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT


    Mark Roberts was doing that thing he likes to do which is climb the sides of mountains, and it was going pretty well. Left pick, right pick. The usual. And then an ice ball fell off of another climber, knocking Roberts off his groove and turning what was an enjoyable mountain climb into a terrifying…

  6. Check out Alec Baldwin and Charles Barkley’s awkward attempts at improv (video)

    Mar 8, 2013, 12:07 PM EDT


    Charles Barkley and Alec Baldwin recently filmed a commercial for Capital One that had Baldwin claiming to be a gladiator of bocce ball, ‘in his day’ as Barkley looks at him like he’s a insane person. But I much preferred watching the outtake reel, where Baldwin and Sir Charles are put on the spot in…

  7. And so it goes: Just like we thought, Aaron Carter CANNOT actually beat Shaq

    Mar 7, 2013, 1:53 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Twelve years ago, Aaron Carter came out with the uber popular rap track That’s How I Beat Shaq, complete with a music video that showed him draining jumpers (with horrible shooting form) and traveling all over the place for layups (where are the refs?) against a hapless Shaq, cut between dance sessions with cheerleaders, crazy…

  8. Check out old footage of a starstruck Ichiro meeting Michael Jordan in 1995 (video)

    Mar 6, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT


    Get ready for one of the most adorable meetings of athletic supremacy, when a 22-year-old Ichiro Suzuki, sporting a Tom and Jerry sweatshirt and looking like a high school sophomore, crossed paths with His Airness himself, Michael Jordan, circa 1995. This results in a riveting conversation that miraculously has been caught on tape, which you…

  9. Navy Federal Credit Union teams with the Mobile BayBears to create an unsittable seat for a good cause

    Mar 5, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT


    No matter how well the Mobile BayBears do this season, they will never have a sellout. And that’s by design. To honor all of the prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action who have never returned, the Navy Federal Credit Union and BayBears (Double-A, Southern League) have dedicated a seat at Hank Aaron Stadium…

  10. Sad trombone: SWAC tournament-bound Grambling finishes regular season 0-27

    Mar 4, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT


    Grambling State is on the brink of submitting only the eighth winless season in Division I basketball history after an 0-27 regular season, in which they lost no game by fewer than double digits. The misery isn’t over, however. They get one more shot at basketball redemption in the SWAC tournament, which they miraculously qualified…

  11. Sabo-deer! Mountain bike racer Jeff Plassman slowed down by collision with oblivious deer (video)

    Mar 1, 2013, 7:04 PM EDT


    The “Monster Cross and Mountain Bike race” at Pocahontas State Park in Virginia was rolling along smoothly for mountain bike racer Jeff Plassman. Yeah, there were a lot of people in front of him but there were also a couple of people behind him too. That is, until he was knocked out by a deer…

  12. Blinded by Adidas: New NCAA tournament ‘Adizero’ jerseys … remember Fruit Stripe Gum?

    Feb 28, 2013, 3:16 PM EDT


    If there’s ever a reason to use the made-up word ‘terribad’, these jerseys are it. With sleeved tops that look like they were salvaged from a highlighter factory explosion to pants ripped straight from a 1991 Fruit Stripe Gum commercial, Adidas has really made a doozy of a uniform combination for six teams in the…

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It’s starting to look like the besleeved basketball jersey look the Golden State Warriors broke out last week will be more than a funky flash in the pan. Adidas Vice President Lawrence Norman confirmed today that the NCAA tournament will feature a handful of teams that will unveil their own brand of revolutionary bicep hiding…

    Why’s the best hitter in baseball wearing a snorkel and pretending to swim in front of a green screen? Why is he trying to surf on a boogie board? Why is he threatening me with a baguette while wearing an eye patch? And why does Adam Jones have such an angelic voice? These are all…

  15. Watch Jimmy Kimmel lose at pop-a-shot to a relentless two-year-old (video)

    Feb 22, 2013, 5:09 PM EDT


    The two-year-old trick shooting toddler/infant Titus has set the bar really high for his future self after his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he handily demolished the goofy jokeman in pop-a-shot. Something tells me this kid is really going to like beer pong some day. Wielding a bizarre over-the-head set shot, Titus may…

  16. What did the stray cat say to a crocodile at an Indian zoo? SLAP! (video)

    A random stray tomcat, or ‘moggy’, if you want to know how the British say things, wandered into an Indian zoo and found himself face to face with a crocodile. Most everybody would turn tail and make for the exits in this situation. But some cats (mostly of the street) have the ability to be…

    The next time you think you’re slowly creeping closer to the hapless end of life tradition of crossword puzzles, slow driving and horrible hearing, you should attempt to turn back the tide of aging by gathering motivation from one hero zoo animal: a sea otter named “Eddie”. At age sixteen, Eddie is considered a geriatric…

  18. What started out as a college baseball game quickly devolved into a snowball fight (video)

    Feb 18, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT


    Dayton and Gardner-Webb had every intention to play a game of baseball on Saturday night, but nature threw them a change of plan in the sixth inning when a monster snow storm dumped on the state of North Carolina. Baseball had been rendered impossible. A high octane snowball fight had replaced it instead. With a…

  19. Tottenham’s Gareth Bale is trying to make game-winning buzzer beaters a thing in soccer too (video)

    Feb 15, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT


    It was a regular old 1-1 stalemate going into the 93rd minute of Tottenham’s Europa League soccer matchup against Lyon when, after a foul outside the box, Lyon midfielder Gareth Bale got a chance at a last-second free kick to the win the game. And we do mean last-second, because they were in extra time…

  20. Brazilian teams prove playing soccer on a flooded field is still not a good idea (video)

    A rain-soaked field did not stop Internacional from beating Caxias 2-0 yesterday, as the Brazilian soccer teams soldiered on despite gigantic puddles that led to player pileups and general confusion at Caxias do Sul’s field. Rainout? Makeup game? Postponement? We don’t have time for that! Onward! If you can run, you can kick. Check out…

  21. Behold: 348-pound Univ. of Hawaii running back recruit David Fangupo (video)

    Feb 13, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT


    From Refrigerator Perry to Natrone Means to Jerome Bettis to Brandon Jacobs, football has always been a little intrigued by the concept of a fast fat guy who could carry the ball, lumbering through defense on dancer’s feet and tree trunk thighs. But none of them fits the caricature better than 348-pound David Fangupo of…

  22. One-handed safety Shaquem Griffin makes pretty amazing interception (video)

    Feb 7, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT


    Shaquem Griffin was born with a birth defect that left him with a deformed hand, which caused him constant pain until doctors removed the hand when he was four. But Shaquem hasn’t let the setback get in his way, especially when it comes to football. Griffin, a senior safety for Lakewood (FL) High School, on…

  23. Man’s attempt at being the last to know the score of the Super Bowl thwarted by rogue email

    Feb 6, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT


    Every year beginning on Super Bowl Sunday, a dedicated group of gaming enthusiasts take part in a competition to see who among them can go the longest without learning the final score of the Super Bowl. They call it Last Man, and it was invented by Kyle Whelliston in 1989. Whelliston later founded the basketball…

    Cantor Fitzgerald & BGC Partners Host Annual Charity Day On 9/11 To Benefit Over 100 Charities Worldwide

    Retired running back Tiki Barber stopped by the information superhighway that is Reddit today to answer some burning questions about his life after retirement. Right now that revolves around a website he created called “Thuzio“, where, much like a clown at a child’s birthday party, people can hire athletes to appear at events in a…

  25. The day that Ray Lewis lost the state high school wrestling title (video)

    Feb 1, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    As you might imagine, Ray Lewis spent most of his high school career dominating everything he touched. His Kathleen High, Fla., rivals cowered at his athletic ability and high spittle rate. And almost all of them were no match for Lewis, except for one special day in 1992 when a kid from Columbus High named…
