Dean Cain is feuding with Matt Leinart for some reason

SportsCenter anchor won a car after getting a hole-in-one

Being a SportsCenter anchor must be a pretty decent life.  You get paid pretty well.  You have some semblance of fame and recognizability without having a TMZ camera stuck in your face every time you walk out of a Starbucks.  And you get to star in funny commercials with various athletes and celebrities. If you’re […]


Frank Caliendo reads LeBron James’ letter as Morgan Freeman

Frank Caliendo has been at ESPN for a while now and although he’s been a part of Sunday NFL Countdown, the real highlights come during his appearances on Mike & Mike.  I think Caliendo and his work has got a little bit of a bad rap with the entire Sunday morning NFL pregame show industry […]

Today CNN, once one of the biggest names in the American news media posted this tweet, and GOOD LORD IS IT TERRIFYING… Lest you think this is some kind of forgery, some kind of *internet joke* or *parody* on something totally ridiculous that CNN could theoretically talk about but would never actually do in the […]


The blooper reel from Metallica’s ESPN commercial

ESPN’s This is SportsCenter commercials have been cited as one of the major reasons why the network and the SportsCenter brand have become the societal mainstays they find themselves to be.  Even now, many years after their inception, the commercials remain one of the funniest, irreverent, and charming aspects of the global behemoth.

WEEI digs a deeper hole with terrible Erin Andrews “apology”

It was one week ago when WEEI radio host Kirk Minihane unleashed a vulgar rant in the direction of Erin Andrews.  Minihane called her a “gutless b*tch” which clearly crossed any line of decency, even for the widening cesspool that is sports talk radio.  The station issued a statement from Minihane apologizing for the comments, […]
