WWE today announced the name of its other July pay-per-view.
The biggest news that Texas Tech football made this offseason was their bizarre inclusion in a tortured analogy during the FBI’s Russia hearing. That is, until this afternoon, when a fire broke out at their football stadium. The school is in the process of constructing a new athletic facility right next to the…
Traditional youth sports are fun and all, but they don’t teach you many skills you can apply to other parts of life. You can shoot a basketball? Cool, but you can’t use that in a non-basketball scenario unless you find a way to make a living betting people on pop-a-shot.
A guy named Zach emailed our tips line to let us know that Doritos make for excellent kindling for a fire. So our staff decided to experiment with a bunch of snacks you might bring camping for their multi-purpose potential. “Experiment” is a generous term; we took chips of all different sizes and surface areas, lit…
Hot, hot lug nuts sparked a fire in Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s pit midway through tonight’s race in Fort Worth, leading to a spectacular display of pyrotechnics that took crew members quite a bit of time to put out. The only thing hotter this week? Takes about Dale Jr.’s sandwich shilling.
The Rams-Steelers game today in St. Louis was delayed today after pregame pyrotechnics set the artificial turf on fire. The fire extinguisher left skin irritants all over the field and the start was pushed back to vaccuum it all up. Good way to slow down Le’Veon Bell!
Like most players during far-flung preseason tours, Manchester City’s players don’t want to be where they are right now. Unfortunately for Vietnamese fans hoping to enjoy their heroes’ visit, the players aren’t too good at hiding their disinterest, either. This apathy pissed off one fan enough to even set his tickets…
The Lancaster JetHawks' planned fireworks after Saturday's game quickly turned into an actual fire in the outfield wall.
The Bellevue fire department tweeted out this picture earlier today and according to local news outlets, the home belongs to Felix Hernandez.
The woman who seems totally unconcerned with the flames licking her feet is named Beverly Bernardi Post. She is a legend of sorts in Topeka, Kansas baton-twirling circles and according to reader Jim, she was the "featured baton twirler" for Kansas in the 70s. Now she is lighting high school football fields on fire.
No one was injured, and the fire never spread beyond the light tower up in right field, so go ahead and laugh!
Upon reaching the finish line in something called the NHRA "Winternationals" today, Antron Brown was going around 300 mph when his 8,000 horsepower engine exploded, causing his two back tires to also explode. He then lost control of the car as it burst into flames and careened into the wall. It then bounced off the…
Tony Pedregon, NHRA Funny Car champion in 2007, ran into some slight difficulty in his race against Todd Lesenko on Friday in Pomona when his car blew up. (Lesenko knows how it is.) Funny cars are sort of designed to explode without incident—it's not hard to find stories about engines going up in flames the way…
The CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders have been getting into the holiday spirit. On the Mosaic Stadium scoreboard, the team has been running video of a Yule log, crackling gently to bring some cheer and comfort in these cold Regina nights. In the past few weeks, four people have called 911 to report a fire.
Miraculously, there were no injuries after a bizarre incident on the 160th lap of the much-delayed Daytona 500 in which Colombian driver Juan Pablo Montoya's car fell apart at just the wrong moment: as he approached a track-drying truck, complete with jet fuel-powered turbine in the back.
Before the season began, WVU and Morgantown officials decided to crack down on the Mountaineer tradition of burning couches after big wins (and big losses). They aren't kidding around, making the celebratory pyre a felony arson charge. The new rules face their greatest test Saturday night, as No. 2 LSU comes to…
Sometimes you have to start with nothing to end up with something. So, is the whole "insurance claim/burning the stadium down" angle offered by the Dodgers fans filming clouds of smoke at Dodger Stadium last night entirely unthinkable?
Cops are circulating photos and video of this man, who burned a shirt on the field after Oregon's win over OSU. The fire spread to the turf, causing $1500 worth of damage.
