Three Maple Leafs Fans Charged For Throwing Jerseys Onto The Ice

Toronto started off the season badly. Then they were good for a while! Now they're really bad again. Who are the real Maple Leafs? (The bad ones.) But some fans don't really have the patience for them to figure it out. During last night's humiliating 4-1 loss to Carolina, at least four fans chucked their Leafs jerseys… » 1/20/15 12:25pm Tuesday 12:25pm

Not Even Hockey Is Safe For Packers Fans Right Now

I absolutely love this. When your own team sucks—as the Vikings do—sports, in their infinite wisdom, offer you a consolation prize: exulting in the tears of your enemies.

He is one of the greatest goaltenders of all time—very arguably the best of an era that featured the likes of Brodeur and Roy—yet it's nearly impossible to properly convey sustained netminding dominance through… » 1/13/15 5:20pm 1/13/15 5:20pm

Roman Polak Messed Up By Slapshot To The Face

He was just minding his own business in the first period of Wednesday night's game against the Capitals, pushing his man away from the crease, when… » 1/07/15 9:53pm 1/07/15 9:53pm
