Five Animal Sports That Actually Exist

Published by under Editorial,Sports

So what do I mean by animal sports?  Well, any kind of sport involving an animal.   So at the simplest core think of things like horse racing or bull fighting.  OK, now that we have the covered, you’d be seriously surprised at all of the sports out there involving animals.

These are sports I never knew about until now.  I’m not even sure the word “sport” is appropriate here.  You be the judge.

Here are five crazy animal sports that actually exist….

The Entire NBA Dazzling Dunks and Basketball Bloopers Series

Published by under NBA,Sports,Video

Perhaps one of the best basketball videos of all time (at least what I think is the best one) is the NBA’s Dazzling Dunks and Basketball Bloopers Volume 1.   The fact that there was a volume 2 actually sickens me but let’s not dwell on that.

In case you haven’t seen it, it’s a comedic and serious look at the NBA in the mid to late 80s and it focuses on things like the dunk contest and other entertaining as well as funny clips from the NBA.

The video stars Marv Albert (and he even wore a wig then) and the ever fun ex Jazz owner Frank Layden.   Oh yeah, and this is back when the dunk contest actually mattered to players.

If you’ve got 40 minutes to spare.  Watch this whole thing.  It’s incredible…..

Five Amazing Mean Gene Wrestling Interviews

Published by under Pro Wrestling,Sports,Video

Of all the announcers and interviewers in the history of pro wrestling, none is more prolific and well known than “Mean” Gene Okerlund. He is best known for his work in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling.  He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 by Hulk Hogan.

He is currently signed to lifetime employment with WWE and works for promotional programs mostly for television shows on WWE Classics On Demand and occasionally makes special appearances and also the host of WWE Vintage Collection.

I’ll always remember Mean Gene from his WWF days and here are five classic interviews that he did back in the day….

Five Ex NBA Players With Interesting Entrepreneur Stories

Published by under Sports

The numbers don’t lie.  The fact that over half of NBA players end up broke within 5 years of retirement is unbelievably sad and at the same time truly aggravating.   Here are guys like me (and probably you) that would kill to make millions playing a sport and would most likely have the sense not to lose that money.

But here we are.   Allen Iverson being the most recent case.  But there’s been plenty before him.   Scottie Pippen being a notable one.   And instead of focusing on moronic financial decisions I’d like to remain a bit positive here.

These are five interesting stories of ex NBA players who have actually gone the other way and made some pretty cool entrepreneurial careers for themselves….

Five Offbeat Sporting Events That Are Way Better To Watch Live

Published by under Editorial,Sports

There are countless sports out there but honestly there are only a handful that we tend to watch on television.  For me it’s basketball, baseball, football, tennis majors, and golf majors.  I mean sure on a boring Sunday I might watch one frame of bowling.   And of course during the Olympics I’ll be tuning in.

But in general I don’t pay much attention to other sports.  Maybe I’m brainwashed or maybe I just think most sports are somewhat boring to watch on TV.

In any event there are some sports that definitely wouldn’t make my television schedule but are certainly worth watching in person.   There are five I’d like to mention….

My Ten Favorite WWF Wrestlers From the 80s

Published by under Editorial,Sports

I’m nearly 33 years old now and I probably couldn’t tell you one wrestler that was out there.   I think John Cena is still around right?  The point is, I just don’t care anymore and I think it’s a function of my place in life more than anything else.    Because I’ll fully admit the guys today are better athletes than the dudes in my youth.

However if it doesn’t make me completely nostalgic to think about the WWE or then the WWF back in the 80s. As a kid it just felt so real.

Anyway, upon reflection, here are my 10 favorite wrestlers from back then….

Seven Necessities For Watching the Superbowl

Published by under Editorial,Sports

I know that we’re still about a month away from the coveted Superbowl but that doesn’t mean we can’t start mentally preparing for it.    Hell I’m excited for it.  Aren’t you guys?  Only thing that sucks is that by the time we reach the game we’ll probably have had about 6 blizzards and I’ll be so tired of shoveling that the game will be in my rear view thinking process.

Still though, nothing wrong with getting together our little wish lists for those throwing Superbowl parties.

Here are seven things you should be looking for this year….

Five Positive Outcomes if PEDs were Allowed in Sports

Published by under Editorial,Sports

Let me start off by saying from a medical standpoint, yet I think the use of PEDs are horrible.  I think that people stuffing themselves with these kinds of pills, hormones, acids, or whatever the hell crap there is, flat out makes very little sense.

On the other hand we’re talking about multi million dollar contracts and a ton of pressure to perform at the professional level.   I can understand the mentality of wanting to be the best or trying to set yourself up financially.   It’s the whole ‘breaking the rules’ part that tends to get the whole sports world.

But what if the door was wide open?  What if one day everyone just said, “do what you want, we don’t care!”   What if this were all legal?  It would sure as hell level out the playing field from those that hide it and those that are honest.

And then there are the other obvious benefits, five of which I’d like to address….

Ranking Sports By How Exciting They Are To Watch on Television

Published by under Editorial,Sports

This is a sensitive subject but one that I think deserves some analysis.   When you really get down to it, how exciting are sports to watch?  And please remember, this article is going to focus on watching sports on TV, not live.   Live is a completely different experience.

For example, let’s take hockey.   Even hockey fans have to admit that watching on television can be a bit boring whereas if you’re at the game it’s an amazing thrill.  The same can be said for other sports as well.   Baseball immediately comes to mind.

But when it comes to television, it’s tough for me or many sports fans to be able to pay attention throughout the whole game.   So I decided to rank sports into 3 tiers in terms of which ones are most exciting to watch on TV….

Five Great Team Championship Runs of This Generation

Published by under Sports

This post is a pretty sweet piece written by my boy Chris over at one of our other sites Unathletic.  I’ve decided to share it with all of you today.

When Chris said  “Our Generation”, he was talking about sports fans in their mid-twenties to early thirties.   The idea behind this article is simple. Chris was having a conversation with a colleague about the sports teams he roots for, and he always mentioned that he was extremely blessed to be growing up during one of their amazing runs.  Those days have long since passed.

I’m sure some of you know what we’re talking about here.   You’ve been a part of a period of 4-5 years when your team was winning multiple championships and always making it to the dance.  They are the best times to be a fan, but as we all know it’s not all roses all the time.

Here are some of the best championship runs of our generation…..
