Counting Down the Best Bat Flipping Sluggers in Recent MLB History

Asdrubal Cabrera’s Bat Flip Getting Recognition Was An Embarrassment to Baseball’s Best Last night, the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies on a 3-run walk-off homer Asdrubal Cabrera to regain momentum in their hunt for an NL wild card spot. I quickly grew infuriated by how much coverage SportsCenter gave his very underwhelming bat flip. It was a two-handed bat flip that wasn’t even worth of replaying, let alone comparing to Jose Bautista’s all-time great bat flip from Game 5 of the 2015 NLDS   Before I start breaking down the best bat flips we’ve seen in recent...

When "Ball is Life" Could End Your Life: Chris Bosh's Fight to Extend Career

Chris Bosh’s struggle with the Heat medical staff  has left the organization in a sticky situation. An Associated Press report came out today declaring that Chris Bosh had “failed his physical”, and as a result could not participate in training camp for the Miami Heat. This all stems from the blood clotting condition that was identified during the 2014-2015 regular season, and it has led to a vicious fight from Bosh to continue playing the game he loves. The Miami forward has been on various media outlets claiming that he will be suiting up again for the Heat this upcoming season,...

You check your computer to see how your fantasy squads faired on Sunday. And then it hits you.. You lost not one but TWO of your top fantasy RBs over the weekend.

Ian Bunting's Music is Awesome

Ian Bunting makes good music I’ve tweeted this before and I just felt I needed to get a good full blog in about it. I love Ian Bunting’s music. I remember driving home from prom senior year and stumbling upon “Adios” and the LT Weirdo inside of me thought “this is gold” (Side Note, I showed everyone Adios. This is my claim to fame, I will die on this hill). I was just waiting to hear this awful, low production frat rap spewing from what I presumed at the time was the devil, a Hinsdale Central athlete. And then...

That losing team will most likely be the Bears, but here are 5 keys to winning Sunday night. Offensive Line: With Cutler sidelined with a thumb injury, the Bears put all their trust into backup veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer. The big bald turnover machine is going...

Ireland Rugby's New Alternate Jerseys Are Purple Yet Perfect

The brand new kit for Ireland has most people really confused. The design itself of the jersey, the sleeves, collar, taper, all that, seems to be pretty popular but….they’re purple. The IRFU lists them technically as “plum” but they sure as shit ain’t green.  The patchwork looks really sleek and it’s Canterbury so it’s the good stuff. I actually think the purple/plum looks pretty sharp, as unpopular as that might sound. The deep, dark hue gives it a modern twist on the royal color of purple. Truthfully, you could wrap the Irish XV in tin foil and it won’t...
