Well, Fox has done it again – this time doing a mock police chase video to advertise Jeff Gordon’s debut in the broadcast booth alongside Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip this year. […]

VIDEO: ESPN’s Reese Waters was able to convince fans he won the Super Bowl

There’s a moral dilemma that I have when it comes to man-on-the-street type videos. On the one hand, they specifically target unsuspecting civilians to make them look like idiots regarding some topic or person they probably have no idea about. On the other hand, they are often hysterical. This video presents that dilemma perfectly, with ESPN correspondent […]

VIDEO: This may be the best Gregg Popovich interview yet

Gregg Popovich interviews are always a fascinating study in human psychology and tonight was no different.  Pop treated David Aldridge to his A+ sarcasm tonight by breaking down the first quarter in fantastic detail. Aldridge: Pop, your impressions of the first quarter… Pop: We’re behind and they’re ahead. Aldridge: Why is that? Pop: They scored […]

Why I’ve given up hope for FS1

When Fox Sports announced that they would be launching a new 24/7 national sports channel to compete with ESPN, I have to admit that part of me was excited.  ESPN has had the better part of a monopoly over the sports media world for decades and, in theory, competition would be a great thing for […]

50 Super Bowl 50 Drinking Game Rules

After two grueling weeks of “embracing debate,” Super Bowl 50 is finally upon us and everything is bigger, better and golder than before. If football is America’s national religion, then this is the holiest of national holidays; we sit in front of the TV guzzling beer, stuffing our faces and cheering our unique form of gladiator […]

VIDEO: Charles Barkley sings One Shining Moment and destroys the art of music

Charles Barkley is maybe the best and most entertaining analyst in sports.  But when it comes to the NCAA Tournament, he doesn’t quite have the same punch or knowledge about the players.  Just last year he was praising a Kansas player during the tournament who hadn’t played since February! But we can safely say without […]
