We all know how awful the feeling is when we misplace something, freaking out that we’ve just lost it for good. But an even worse feeling is when you know that you’ve put something somewhere and when you go back to get it, poof, it’s gone.

Rather than losing it on your own, after a little investigation, it’s determined that someone stole from you, leaving you with a feeling of both rage and disgust.

While it happens on occasion, don’t fret that you’re the only one who experiences it, because here are a few athletes who have been the victim of a robbing before—and there stuff isn’t cheap.

Published by under Editorial

We’ve said it many times before—it’s not easy being a sports fan.

With no control over the decisions that front-offices or athletes make—like demanding a trade, signing a contract with another team or, in the case of an amateur athlete, deciding where they’ll go to college—things can be tough on staying true to your squad.

Still, one would assume that there are few times when it’s time to just completely jump ship, right?

Wrong.

Just read these and see when it should be accepted for you to turn your back and find a different franchise to start cheering for.

With this past weekend being the NBA All-Star Game—which, as of press time, hadn’t yet happened—we’re taking a look back on a few guys who participated in the most fun part of the entire weekend; the Slam Dunk Contest.

While there have been plenty of unforgettable moments that dropped jaws and got fans and judges out of their seats. There have also been a few guys who took advantage of the contest by becoming household names just for their slamming ability.

Much like a one-hit wonder in music, here are five players who fans only know because of some wild throw downs.

While Valentine’s Day might not mean as much to some dudes as it does to the ladies, that still doesn’t mean us guys don’t feel lonely reading Facebook and Twitter updates about how much love is in the air with some of our friends.

And although we may not sit around and watch rom-com’s with a bottle of red wine by ourselves because we’re single tonight, it’s a fact that everybody needs someone to love—as the Blues Brothers once famously said.

It’s difficult to find that special someone by going to bars, talking amongst the other drunks and hoping that you’re able to snatch that one person who actually remembers your name in the morning. And it can be worse when getting set-up by a friend or, gulp, your parents because someone, “Is smart, funny and driven.”

And while we’ve written about the hook-up app Tinder before, for those really looking for something more substantial than just a booty call, try your hand at the app Hinge, because it’s changing the perception of social dating.

We got the chance to sit down and talk with Founder of Hinge, Justin McLeod, who told us everything from how the app works, to what celebs he wishes he’d be lucky enough to potentially get matched with.

Published by under Editorial

It’s really no secret that the majority of pro athletes make very good money—and when we say “very good,” we mean that it’s millions of dollars.

And while there are a handful of guys who get paid at least seven digits and make out on the winning end because they underperform, there are some who don’t wilt to the pressure of living up to such a mega-deal.

Sure, handing a rookie millions of dollars is risky in and of itself, but when a veteran doesn’t succeed, it’s just a depressing thing for the entire franchise and its fans.

No need to worry, though, because here are five NFL guys who actually walked the walk following a deal that made them lots of cash—using the highest-paid players from 2013 as the list to choose from.

Published by under Editorial

Whether you love or hate certain athletes, one general perception about them, however unfair, is that they aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed.

So you’d think that with a lot of people assuming that, they’d do whatever they could to try and prove the haters wrong.

But like we said, they aren’t the smartest people around, so they continue doing dumb things and these are a few of them that make fans roll their eyes and avoid taking the things they say or do seriously.
