Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward is the son of Craig “Ironhead” Heyward, a former NFL fullback who died at the age of 39 from brain cancer. To remember his father, Heyward wrote “Iron Head” on his eye black for Monday night’s game against the Chargers. That’s against the league’s uniform policy, so he earned a…

The NBA announced today that it fined Matt Barnes $50,000 for “directing inappropriate language at a fan.” The fan was James Harden’s mother, and the inappropriate language was reportedly “suck my dick, bitch.”
Glen Davis punted a seat cushion into the stands during a timeout in Sunday's Clippers-Celtics game, and now the forward is out $15,000. Treat those chairs with respect, NBA players. (He got some good distance on it, though.)

Of all the people to finish off the Nets, who'd have guessed it would be Joe Johnson Marco Belinelli? But it was Belinelli's massive invisible testicles, whipped out in celebration after this clutch three, that got the NBA's attention.
Aside from the terrifying Nationwide wreck and the hype around Danica Patrick's pole, the Daytona 500 was kind of boring. Lots of single file racing, few passes, little excitement. The afternoon saw 28 lead changes among 14 drives, down from 74 and 22 in the same race just two years ago. Worryingly, it was also the…
Back in Week 7, Emmanuel Sanders had a fortuitously timed cramp. His "injury" saved the Steelers from having to use a timeout or take a delay-of-game penalty. It was fake, and we all knew it was fake, and Sanders knew we knew, but it's not like the league could do anything about it.
