Five Professional Sports Teams Stocks We’d Buy

Published by under Sports

This was a post that was featured on one of our sister sites Unathleticmag.   It was written by Norty and he deserves credit which is why we’re posting it on here.

As you all might know, the Green Bay Packers sold stock to the public for the fifth time in their 92-year history. The stock gives fans the opportunity to own a piece of the defending champions, undefeated through 12 games this season, but is unlike traditional U.S. common stocks. Ownership in the Packers confers voting rights, but the shares offer no dividend, no chance for appreciation, practically no transfer rights and not even a shot at a highly prized season ticket.

Anyway, let’s say you could actually benefit from being an “owner” of a particular team. If that was the case, and all teams offered stock, here’s who we would buy…

5 Simple Reasons To Be Happy the NBA’s Back

Published by under Sports

The NBA’s officially back starting Christmas Day. Since Santa’s stuffing the players into our stockings, there’s only one way to thank Jolly Ol’ Nick… By tossing him an assist on why we’re actually stoked to get those overpaid and complaining millionaires back on the court.

Let’s face it, you’ve still got work to do on that jumper, so the best thing that can happen is letting the professionals handle the ball, while we pay $8/beer and sit in the nosebleeds.

Seven Foul Ball Fails that Kick Ass

Published by under Sports

Every kid goes to the ballpark wishing they could come back home with a souvenir.   And the reason so many kids bring their mitts to ballgames is because deep down they are hoping that a foul ball or home run lands right into their gloves.

Hell even adults with this to happen too.   When I was 11, my brother caught a liner foul that nearly broke his thumb.  In the process he saved some woman’s face from getting mauled.   Ever since that day I’ve always wanted to catch a foul ball but I never wanted that catch to fail or wind up being disastrous.

Unfortunately, these seven videos contain foul balls that for lack of a better word “fail”…….

Six Obvious Sports Cliches I’m Growing Very Tired Of

Published by under Editorial,Sports

Nobody’s perfect.  And far be it from me to get in the grills of experienced announcers.  I know they have a job to do and I understand it’s difficult to call an entire game.   But sometimes when you hear those obvious comments you kind of have to roll your eyes.

Comments that revolve around how a team has to perform in order to win the game.  Or crap that involves where the game is at in a particular instance.   Just stuff that’s pretty obvious and I as a fan could live without.

Anyway, here are six that I hope you’ll all agree with….

Joe Paterno in Hot Water for Covering for Pedophile Coach

Published by under Sports

Grandpa Joe, say it ain’t so! Beloved Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is in trouble this week after it’s been revealed that he and the Penn State athletic board likely covered up for defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who is alleged to have molested eight young boys over the last fifteen years.

There’s now “eroding support” at Penn State for the long time coach after this was revealed, but he still enjoys massive support from the students, who rallied outside his house. That quote above is  more or less what he had to say about the issue, but I think he should be a little more forceful about the wrongdoing, and admit to his part in covering it up.

What will happen next? It’s anyone’s guess, but this is a scandal of Catholic proportions, and I have to imagine a lot of people are getting fired and/or going to jail, Grandpa Joe Paterno possibly included.

Five White Players We Need Back in the NBA Today

Published by under Sports

Detlef

Hey since we won’t have a season we might as well talk about this stuff right????

In today’s NBA game there’s much more of a “unity” of NBA players. No, I’m not saying that all NBA players are the same culturally and ethnically. But what I’m saying is that the NBA is a different breed today. The majority of players are sporting tattoos, and there’s this newer, more “hip” type of a culture.

I don’t really know how to explain it. But even the goofy white guys aren’t that goofy or dorky anymore. Maybe some Europeans but if you go back to the 80s and 90s there were some classic dorky white dudes in the league that just don’t exist today. I guess today’s guys don’t have the same basketball goals of some of the older generations. Who knows?

But if I could bring back some of these guys, here are 5 I would love to see in the league today…..

The Cowboys Cheerleaders Have Fun on Twitter

Published by under Beautiful Ladies,Sports

Since day one I’ve found pride in being able to locate pictures of certain people that is somewhat difficult.  For the most part hot girl pictures don’t matter.  I mean most dudes just want to see hot chicks no matter what.

But when it come to rare pictures or personal pictures of ladies that are somewhat known, there tends to be demand for that.   We all know how much the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are.   How nice is it of them to share some of their more personal moments on Twitter and Facebook?

Here’s a look at some awesome but not often seen Cowboys Cheerleaders pictures….

Six For Whatever Reason Likable Athletes

Published by under Sports

This article is a tough one to explain but Bleacherreport did something like this yesterday.   They wrote about athletes who were bad boys but were liked anyway.   That’s how I’d describe my selections.

These are guys that for whatever reason, we root for.  They just seem likable.   As if no matter what they do off or on the field matters.  We’ll still like and root for them.

Hell, I root for these guys….

7 Brutal Wipeouts of the X Games

Published by under Sports

The amount of balls the people who compete in the X Games (including women) is beyond me.   On the one hand you’re thinking these people are just flat out dumb.   On the other you realize how skillful and amazing some of the feats these people do are.

But have you ever seen any other competitions where accidents are this common?  No way.   The degree of difficulty is just way to high.   Yet we will continue having X Games for years to come.   The sport has just come too far.

Just in case you’re thinking of becoming an Extreme sports star, check out these wipeouts first…..
