    Lindsey Vonn

    Earlier in the month, skier Lindsey Vonn suffered a gruesome injury during the Skiing World Championships in Austria where she tore not only her ACL and MCL in her right knee during a timed run. While her future in the sports is unknown as this point, it appears that Lindsey is pretty upbeat about the…

    Tubby Smith

    Personally, I’m pro-celebration after collecting a victory in any sport and it appears that the Minnesota Golden Gophers men’s basketball team did some celebrating after beating the #20-ranked Wisconsin Badgers by the score of 58-53 on Thursday night. The Gophers improved their record to 18-7 overall and after Tubby finished his speech, there was a…

    Angry Dad

    Most of the time, youth sports leagues are a great place for kids/teenagers to play organized sports without having to deal with hecklers or conflict. However, there are times when some parents decide to cross the line and start heckling at players on the opposing team or fighting with parents regarding trivial things. The below…

    Soccer Goalie crotch kick

    In another edition of “soccer players behaving badly”, a Northern Premier League match between Stafford Rangers and the Frickley Athletics got a little ugly as a brawl broke out near the sidelines at the 51st minute. While most of the players got caught up in the brawl, Stafford Rangers forward Fabrice Kasiama was away from…

    FBL-EUR-C3-TOTTENHAM-LYON

    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…

  6. Jose Canseco doesn’t believe this whole Russian meteor business for one second

    MeteorCansecoAPGetty

    Scientists and numerous other so-called experts told us that a meteor exploded over Russia this morning, and of course we were all so eager to believe that. But Jose Canseco wasn’t fooled. No sir.         OK, he’s sounded the alarm. But some of his readers are skeptical of his analysis. Keep drinking…

    I guess ring girls are kind of the cheerleaders of boxing and MMA: a great knowledge of the sport is not required. But you do need to know the basics. Remember this poor lass? A similar tragedy struck recently at an amateur MMA match — not sure which one, although one of the signs reads…

    Now we know how far the borders of Buckeye Nation extend. They end just before you get to Tennessee. A 65-year-old woman and her husband were pulled over a few miles east of Memphis because of the Ohio State Buckeye sticker they had displayed on their car — of the same type you see in…

    Russia Meteorite

    Every once and awhile, God notices mankind crowding the plate. And that’s when you can expect the brushback pitches. First a meteor hit Russia, and then an asteroid half the size of a football field passed within 17,100 miles of Earth. In cosmic terms, that’s a huge rock just missing the brim of our batting…

    “And so shines a good deed in a weary world,” said one Mr. Willy Wonka. This comes to mind because of the Twitter campaign started by Owasso High School (OK) point guard Jaylen Lowe, who was trying to get team manager Nathan Mitcham into a game as a player. Mitcham, a senior, is a special…

    Funny thing about social media: the more famous you are as a comedian, the less funny you seem to be on Twitter. Many of the big names in comedy have jumped aboard the Twitter machine in recent years — Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Albert Brooks and Robin Williams are examples. But with few exceptions they’ve…

    If your name is Sverre, then there’s the first clue that your ski tricks are going to be pretty radical. Here we see Sverre Liliequist competing in the Swatch Skiers Cup 2013 freestyle competition in Zermatt, Switzerland. During his second Big Mountain run he triggers an avalanche, and outraces it to the finish … but…

    It seems that lately Tim Tebow has been making more speaking appearances in church than he has quarterback appearances in NFL games. Tebow made headlines with his Easter address in Georgetown, Texas in April, and his talk at a Scottsdale, AZ church earlier this month. And now he’s got another gig at a megachurch in…

    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…

    Because no quirky media trend escapes the gaze of the Minor League Baseball marketing gremlins, a Single-A Florida State League team is planning a Marco Rubio Water Bottle Giveaway Night this season. When will the Ft. Myers Miracle hold this gala promotional event? That’s still up in the air, because they’ve invited Sen. Rubio to…

    A measure that would have allowed home-schooled students to participate in public high school sports was defeated in the Virginia Senate Education and Health Committee on Tuesday — the second straight year that the so-called “Tebow bill” failed to launch. As you surely know, Tim Tebow played quarterback for Allen D. Nease High School in…

    Well, at least he’s not suing her. Taking time from his litigation against comedian Bill Maher (more birth certificate stuff), Donald Trump appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show (!) and had some choice words concerning Beyonce’s halftime performance at Super Bowl LXVII: “When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if…

    Supermodel Kate Upton poses at the launch party of the Sports Illustrated's 2013 Swimsuit issue in New York

    The meteroric rise of Kate Upton has not only been great to look at, it’s sometimes amusing to listen to. Take her recent interview on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., for instance. Not only was in awkward, but kind of weird — at one point the host asked Upton if she had any questions…

    The shocking news from this morning that Paralympic superstar Oscar Pistorius was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, inside his home has taken everyone by surprise — except for advertisers. Just hours after the athlete they call Blade Runner was seen exiting a police station in Pretoria, South Africa, someone took this…
