Jamaal Franklin Goes Off The Backboard At Full Speed For This Dunk Of…

Will any other dunk during the 2012-13 college basketball season eclipse this insane moment of instinct, confidence, and sheer ballsiness? The correct response, almost assuredly, is "no." And by the eighth or ninth time you watch this, check out the Fresno State players' heads turn in every conceivable direction as… » 1/10/13 1:30am 1/10/13 1:30am

Bullpen Cell Phones Are Coming To Major League Baseball Next Season

MLB and T-Mobile just announced a new deal here at CES that'll (maybe? hopefully?) cut down on embarrassing miscommunications between the bench and the pen. Starting next season, clubs will have the option of using dedicated, in-dugout cell phones to help get their relievers up and warming. Although, the best news for… » 1/08/13 9:10pm 1/08/13 9:10pm

An Inside Look At The Impending Flying Robot Apocalypse (And How To Put…

The Consumer Electronics Show, held in Vegas every year during the second-ish week in January, is an odd duck. Everyone is desperate to talk to you and show you things and shake your hand and trample you on the show floor and so forth. But (and this is my third time being here) there's often little that truly grabs… » 1/08/13 9:00pm 1/08/13 9:00pm

Oprah Winfrey Gets The Next Chance At Asking Lance Armstrong If He…

News surfaced last week that Lance Armstrong was sorta kinda getting itchy to come clean on certain PED-related matters, and now it seems that Oprah Winfrey will get the next crack at letting the ex-seven-time Tour de France winner admit, well, anything he might feel compelled to admit. And on the off-chance you don't… » 1/08/13 7:40pm 1/08/13 7:40pm

Bill O'Brien Is Staying Put At Penn State: "I'm Not A One-And-Done Guy"

Looks like Bill O'Brien isn't going anywhere after all. Mere minutes after Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel dropped a nice little scoop that school officials would be putting forth an extra push to keep O'Brien at the school (and that he was strongly considering doing so), CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora (who kind of … » 1/03/13 9:55pm 1/03/13 9:55pm

Here's Shawn Marion As The Super Mario Bros. Character You Never Asked…

First of all, it makes no sense because Bowser doesn't come anywhere near World 1-1, and Mario could never carry any cool stuff on his back, like, say, an NBA championship trophy. But that's fine, Dallas Mavericks CGI worker bees. You have fun with your green screen and rampant video game-revisionist tendencies.… » 1/03/13 9:20pm 1/03/13 9:20pm

Report: Nation's Top High School Football Coach May Step Down

If you're looking for a legendary coach amid today's high school football landscape, it's hard to top Bob Ladouceur's credentials. But after 399 wins over 34 seasons at De La Salle High School in the Bay Area and throughout a tenure that has produced more than a few NFL players (read: Amani Toomer and Maurice… » 1/03/13 8:50pm 1/03/13 8:50pm

Colts Owner Jim Irsay Is Ready For The Playoffs: "Time To Let The…

The Andrew Luck-led Indianapolis Colts, by some unexplainable circumstance, pulled off an 11-5 record this season and secured a wild-card playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. Colts owner Jim Irsay? Oh, he's ready to party, as you can see for yourself. (Of course, Irsay's self-portrait was so nice, he… » 1/03/13 12:26am 1/03/13 12:26am

This Guy Died In 2012: Norman Sas, The Brains (Bzzz) Behind (Bzzz)…

Before fantasy football, before Madden NFL, before even Tecmo Bowl, there was Electric Football, the wonderfully aggravating tabletop game that sent players scurrying aimlessly (so it seemed) about a miniature metal field. Powered by a small motor—and subject only to the whims of metallic vibration—this pastime was an… » 12/28/12 3:55pm 12/28/12 3:55pm

Report: Jets Will Look To Trade Mark Sanchez After This Season

As Manish Mehta of the Daily News is reporting, Mark Sanchez's days with the Jets may be coming to their inevitable end. As Mehta's sources indicate, the Jets will be looking to trade Sanchez after this season, the clear indication being that there would be some other team in the NFL that would be willing to take him… » 12/19/12 9:21pm 12/19/12 9:21pm

Dwight Howard Wanted No Piece Of Gerald Henderson's Absurd Dunk

As one savvy observer pointed out, you actually have to be in the frame in order to be posterized, but Dwight Howard is so disinterested in being a part of the play that Gerald Henderson has a relatively easy time throwing down one of the dunks of the year, one that has clear shades of Griffin-on-Perkins. (Dunk… » 12/19/12 9:15am 12/19/12 9:15am

No Matter How Hilarious It Would Be, Tim Tebow Will Never Play In The…

With Rex Ryan engaged in a hilarious, semi-silent standoff with management over Tim Tebow's playing time, or severe lack thereof, there's been some speculation, idle thus far but growing in volume, that Tim Tebow's last best option for playing professional football, once his underwhelming tenure with the Jets… » 12/19/12 12:30am 12/19/12 12:30am
