    Jerks reside everywhere, and the University of Wisconsin’s investigative journalism superstars have put it upon themselves to uncover the ones in their area for a good old fashioned public shaming. The Wisconsin Badgers are having one of those dream seasons they seem to have every now and then and are heading to Pasadena to butt…

    Comments Off

    Wonder what Qatar’s secret key to success for their improbable victory in the race to host the 2022 World Cup was? The old tried and true method of paying off people to pretend to be your friends. It’s how I got people to talk to me in high school! The tiny nation of Qatar, which…

    Dec 1, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT


    Think nothing amazing could ever come out of Ohio again? Well think again because they either have paper thin bowling pins to raise state confidence or they own a citizen who performed one of the craziest bowling feats in recent memory. Matt Latarski became only the 17th man to bowl a 900 in the history…

    A woman who goes by the Twitter handle “theashes” was puttering around on the internet as usual one day when all of a sudden she was cyber-accosted by a bunch of eager cricket fans who looked to her as a depository for recent cricket scores. You see, The Ashes is also a test cricket tournament…

    From the magnificent minds at Big League Stew comes this fantastically heartwarming Thanksgiving tale about how a throwaway quip by Yogi Berra to a bunch of naive North Dakota potato farmers who didn’t realize that they should basically ignore everything Yogi says if they wish to interact with him in a manner deemed human ended…

  6. Awww, how cute: Penny Hardaway still thinks he can play basketball

    Nov 22, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Though it feels like decades since disabled list superstar Penny Hardaway was relevant — he hasn’t averaged double digit scoring since 2002 and hasn’t played in the league since 2008 — he still feels like he can come back and “contribute on a winning team.” You have to remember that at one point Hardaway was…

    Comments Off

    Los Angeles Clippers ‘rookie’ Blake Griffin and former number one overall pick is quickly reminding the NBA that though he took a year off to heal up his knee after an injury last year sidelined him for the entire season, he’s still alive and ready to infiltrate ESPN’s Top 10 plays and make gravity his…

  8. Richard Seymour finally dons Raiders persona, punches Ben Roethlisberger

    Nov 21, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT


    Always a reluctant Raider ever since he was let go from football powerhouse New England to spend the latter part of his career toiling away in the thankless trenches of the usually helpless Oakland Raiders, it looks to me like Richard Seymour has finally gotten off his Patriots high horse and has decided to go…

  9. Former Man U superstar Eric Cantona is spearheading a revolution of some sort

    Nov 19, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT


    Apparently Europe decided to follow in the United States’ footsteps and engage themselves in some sort of financial malaise that has caused a bunch of people to organize some sort of bank revolution where they try and emulate the Great Depression by employing a ‘run on the bank’ to make them collapse and have France…

    Comments Off

    Your idea of fun is about to get bulldozed by the mind of Stephen Meadows, an entertainment visionary that’s about to bring you the ability to fly a mini hot air balloon like a bumper car in an enclosed arena as you dip and dodge the blows of 19 people intent on knocking your craft…

  11. Wide Receiver Kevin Curtis can now add testicular cancer survivor to his list of accomplishments

    Nov 18, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT


    Were you wondering why the great white wide receiving hope known as Kevin Curtis still hasn’t latched onto an NFL roster this year after seven mostly stellar NFL seasons of burning defensive backs and giving balding white weekend warriors the comfort of knowing that they too could have made an NFL roster if they had…

    Eccentric airplane tycoon, former Baywatch co-star and 212th richest man in the world Richard Branson, always up for a good time, placed a bet with fellow Formula One boss Tony Fernandes of Lotus racing earlier this year regarding the points totals for each of their F1 racing teams. Though both teams ended the season with…

  13. Colin Cowherd’s life being made into a television show; death of TV is nigh

    Nov 15, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT


    Radio blowhard and noted blog murderer Colin Cowherd leads a life of yelling into mics and at cameras and pissing people off, and apparently that’s good enough these days to sell your life story to television. That’s what’s happening with Cowherd’s unique life journey of raising havoc and insulting people for radio and TV ratings.…

    Nov 15, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Thanks to wide receiving superstar Randy Moss’s chameleon like approach to the 2010-2011 NFL season, there’s a whole bunch of Randy Moss related fabric that has become totally useless in New England and Minnesota, unless you enjoy prancing around town looking like a hopelessly confused hipster. While a whole bunch of sports retailers are now…

  15. Original home of baseball Giants begs for a trophy appearance

    Nov 12, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Not many people know this because not many people can remember being alive in 1882, but the San Francisco Giants weren’t always situated in San Francisco or New York City. There’s a tiny patch of land somewhere in the state of New York that goes by Troy that was once the home of the World…

  16. A bird in the hand is worth two laps for Kyle Busch

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:39 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    NASCAR’s Busch brothers may not be famous because of their propensity for winning races, but they compensate nicely for that shortcoming by blowing up at anybody and anything that does them wrong on the racing oval, which is odd for someone to do when they have access to so a limitless amount of M&M’s. This…

    When you’re attending a sporting event in my home state of Pennsylvania and don’t own any clothing that supports a local sports establishment, either hit a clothing outlet or consider wearing nothing at all because odds are you’re probably not going to be received in a manner that’s anywhere close to humane. Take, for example,…

  21. Que pass-a; Georgia High School football squad using Spanish snap counts

    Comments Off

    I hope they allow Google translators on the football field because a Georgia high school team comprised mostly of Hispanic players has decided to institute an all-Spanish snap count to take advantage of their heritage and confuse other teams. It’s an idea I thought of seven years ago after a concussion during a middle school…
