Donald Driver Surprises Old Lady Who Is His Biggest Fan

Being snobby East Coast elites, we've never understood the people of Wisconsin and their Packers. I guess the public owns the team, so that's something. Even so: These folks love the Packers even more than the team's shared ownership would dictate. The people consider every last Packer a beautiful soul, an angel… » 2/07/13 1:15pm 2/07/13 1:15pm

Tree-Poisoner Harvey Updyke Is "Meaner Than Anyone In The World," Writes …

The trees at Auburn's Toomer's Corner: not doing so hot. "Aesthetically dead if not actually dead," the university said last week. (Still, they might be doing better than Harvey Updyke, who is living in his car in the woods as he awaits trial.) The oaks received a massive pruning earlier this month, in yet another… » 8/22/12 12:10pm 8/22/12 12:10pm

Six-Year-Old Sends Brandon Jacobs $3.36 To Stay With The Giants

Brandon Jacobs is not what you would call a great running back. But that doesn't matter when you're six years old, and you attach yourself to a player for the least rational of reasons. Maybe young Joe saw Brandon Jacobs score a single touchdown on a particularly formative viewing day. Maybe Joe's parents bought him a… » 6/06/12 2:50pm 6/06/12 2:50pm

Feeling Goodell: Who Hugged The NFL Commissioner Longest At Last…

NFL commissioner and disciplinary hardass Roger Goodell has ushered in the Draft Day Hug Era, eschewing the usual handshake photo-ops in favor of giving in to those players who want to give him the bro treatment.

Missouri Western Footballers Save Baby's Life, Doom Baby To Life Of…

With 17-month-old Liam Snook accidentally locked inside a hot car, vomiting and starting to pass out, it fell on two Missouri Western State D-backs who were just passing by to rescue the kid.

If This Doesn't Warm Your Heart, You're Awful

We've learned a lot about fan psychology when it comes to foul balls. We've seen adults snatch them away from children; we've seen kids sulk until they're rewarded; we've seen grown men devote their sad lives to catching baseballs. There's something about that little sphere made of cork, yarn and leather that makes… » 7/21/11 11:55am 7/21/11 11:55am

The NBA Draft: Where Love Happens?

Jan Vesely, a 6-11 swingman from the Czech Republic, was selected sixth overall by the Washington Wizards in last night's NBA Draft. For any 21-year-old, the moment would have been special.

"This Is Her Cage As Well As Mine": MMA Fighter Proposes After Win

MMA fighter and leukemia survivor Bryan Baker proposed to his girlfriend last night after his KO against Joe Riggs, and she said yes. Aw, right? We're more impressed, though, with Baker's honesty.

Derrick Rose, NBA MVP, Thanks His Mother And Warms Our Frigid Hearts

Chicago's Derrick Rose was named the NBA's 2010-11 Most Valuable Player today. He is the youngest MVP in league history. Rose delivered remarks to members of the Chicago media this afternoon; he sounded perhaps nervous and certainly young, because he is.
