MLB asks Yaisel Puig to stop wearing his Vin Scully cleats

Last week we took notice of Los Angeles Dodgers star Yaisel Puig’s new cleats that paid honor to the legendary Vin Scully. So did Major League Baseball, and they would like to see Puig keep those cleats off the field in the future. If you missed it last week, Puig is wearing custom Nike cleats […]

Joe Rogan will be sticking with the UFC for at least another year

Earlier this year, UFC fight analyst Joe Rogan said he would leave the company as a cageside commentator if it was sold to an outside investor. A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that UFC was indeed sold for a cool $4 billion.  While there are many things currently on the UFC agenda – from […]


Rate the local MLB announcers, 2016 version – AL East

The AL East fared pretty well in our last rankings two years ago, with the Baltimore Orioles claiming the top spot among the teams in the division. Not much has changed since then, aside from the very minor, uncontroversial move of the Red Sox replacing Don Orsillo with Dave O’Brien in the play by play […]

WATCH: Rick Sutcliffe cuts up his tie during Cubs-White Sox broadcast

One of the most comical sports stories we’ve heard in quite some time is Chris Sale getting suspended by the White Sox after desecrating the team’s throwback jerseys because he didn’t want to pitch in them. Sale going crazy with a pair of scissors has led to a number of surreal memes and headlines and […]

Matt Damon weighs in on Tom Brady suspension, with less f-bombs than Affleck

Last month saw Ben Affleck blast Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension with an incredible 19 f-bombs on Bill Simmons’ Any Given Wednesday, and now Affleck’s Good Will Hunting co-writer and co-star Matt Damon has weighed in too, but in a much less profane manner. That’s probably good, as he wasn’t on HBO, where swearing is fair […]

Joe Tessitore

ESPN’s Joe Tessitore one of the last to see Nebraska punter Sam Foltz alive

The tragic car accident that claimed the lives of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and ex-Michigan State punter Mike Sadler has shocked the college football community. It has sent shockwaves around the Big Ten Conference. Both Foltz and Sadler were taking part in a kickers camp in Wales, Wisconsin when they drove off during a torrential rainstorm. […]


Rate the local MLB announcers, 2016 version – NL West

In the previous rankings, the NL West took the top two spots – but probably not in the order you imagined, as the Giants shocked everyone by trumping the Dodgers and Vin Scully. Since it’s an even year, that’ll probably end up happening again. However, maybe splitting Scully away from the other SportsNet LA broadcast […]

Big Ten Network

Big Ten Network to offer new original programs

It’s hard to believe that Big Ten Network will enter its 10th year of operation. Back in 2007, Big Ten Network debuted with the monumental Appalachian State upset of Michigan and hasn’t looked back. Being one of the most successful league-owned networks, Big Ten Network is trying to stay fresh with some new original programs premiering […]
