Shaq takes a callDavid Stern in an interview with Yahoo! Sports, said that the NBA will be introducing guidelines for using Twitter (and presumably Facebook and others) in the near future. The NFL recently announced their own guidelines… Continue
Pete Rose recently made some comments about steroid use on the Dan Patrick Radio Show. We realize that many have no interest in hearing from Pete Rose about baseball because of his admitted gambling on the game and his Cincinnati Reds team as a player and a manager. We also know that the Dowd Report, commissioned by major league baseball to investigate Rose, says that there is no evidence that Rose bet against his team. Pete Rose was a gambler and… Continue

Michael Phelps showing breath controlMichael Phelps in all his Olympic glory was photographed taking a hit of marijuana from a bong. That’s a water pipe for those of you so prudish as to not know. The incident happened last November but the picture just surfaced last week.

When it comes to NBA merchandise, Kobe Bryant doesn't have to look over his shoulder, he has the most popular player jersey in the league. Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers' 11-time All-Star, regained the top spot on the NBA's list, bumping 2008 No. 1 Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics to second.
Florida State safety, Myron Rolle won a Rhodes Scholarship one day back in November and then raced to a game later that night making it in time for the second half. Just to be clear, being a Rhodes scholar is a big deal. This was Bill Clinton's hustle back in the day.
He crushed baseballs for 16 Boston summers, rarely pausing to take a bow, shake a hand, or play the fool for the 6 o'clock standup. When his career was over, he hung around to teach hitting and, amazingly, wound up behind a television sports desk, offering opinions before and after Red Sox games.
Okay this is a good one. Darius Miles who we all remember as the third overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft when the LA Clippers took him straight from high school, was waived by the Portland Trailblazers back in 2006 when it was determined that he was medically unable to play because of a micro-fracture in his knee.

Cullen Jones rocketed to an American record in the 50-meter freestyle at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials on the Fourth of July. Jones touched the wall in 21.59 seconds, lowering the old mark of 21.76 set by Gary Hall Jr. at the 2000 trials. Jones is not the first elite-level black swimmer in the U.S. "There were a number before me. But the problem is, they didn't get exposure. Maritza Correira (2004 silver medalist in the 4x100 relay) got exposure… Continue
