    It’s the Year of Living Dangerously for kids, for sure. Every time I look up it seems some youngster is attempting a death-defying feat of some sort, with mom and dad’s permission. In the past couple of weeks we’ve told you about Jordan Romero, who at 13 became the youngest person ever to summit Mt.…

    George W. Bush, Nolan Ryan

    What is the most liberal MLB team fan base? The team of choice for the most conservative NFL fans? And which college sports program fan base skews more Republican than any other in the U.S.? The National Journal did a study this past fall which is being re-released now due to the NCAA basketball Tournament, and some of the answers may surprise you.

  4. The Saint Louis Billikens watched the NCAA Tournament selection show at a Best Buy

    Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament - Championship

    The best thing about an entire college basketball team filing into a Best Buy would be the blue-shirted clerk at the front door having to give every one of them with the anti-shoplifting greeting, like they do with all customers. “Hello” (nods). “Hello” (nods). “Hello” (nods). “Hello” (nods) …  and it would get hilarious when…

    There are times in the world of sports when celebrating is a good decision and this little league home run celebration might be the best one that I’ve ever seen. At this time, there isn’t exactly much known about the little leaguer except for the fact that the video title has deemed him, “Lil Papi”…

    If you told me about two years ago, that New England Patriots fans would be burning the jersey of wide receiver Wes Welker, I would have called you crazy. However after Wes signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos this week, a couple of angry New England fans decided to celebrate his betrayal of…

    It’s not often that I come across squash trick shots but this one courtesy of England’s James Willstrop might be the most impressive one that I’ve ever seen. It occurred at the North American Open in a semifinal match against Egypt’s Ramy Ashour as James pulled off a pretty rare feat of a double-fake shot. After…

    Over the years, we’ve seen players blame poor performances on a myriad of things but this might be the first time that a grandmother has come to the aid to explain a poor performance. Back on Thursday, Goddard Duval High School (Maryland) were upset in the Class 4A boys regional basketball semifinals by Upper Marlboro Wise who defeated…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    If you’re going to coach women’s college basketball, you have to expect a certain amount of hijinks and/or shenanigans. There’s no escaping it. But a Gatorade bath for the coach while he’s still on the court? That’s something new. Of course the folks in attendance at this game in Nebraska didn’t seem to think it…

    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…

    So a reader of UniWatch.com, Alec Tolivaisa, had this thought: what if I made a graphic that showed what NFL team each of our 44 presidents would have rooted for? And so he did. Of course it was easy for presidents such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush, whose rooting interests are known. But…

    Yep, a hole-in-one. Only 43-year-old Mark Mihal didn’t score it in the conventional manner: it was Mark who went in the hole, and the ball that stayed on the fairway. It happened in Waterloo, Ill., when Mihal, who runs a fantasy golf site, fell into a sinkhole at the fairway of the 14th hole at…

They are omnivorous animals related to wolverines and weasels, and apparently enjoy soccer. That’s because one darted onto the field during a Swiss Super League match between Thun and Zurich recently, not…
