UConn football coach Bob Diaco introduced the world to a new rivalry, unilaterally dubbed the Civil Conflict, between the Huskies and the Central Florida Knights in June. It had a trophy and everything, and yet, no one bothered to tell UCF, or head coach George O’Leary. In fact, it wasn’t clear that a program can just…
Did the UCF Knights want a new college football rival? Probably not, but UConn head coach Bob Diaco started one anyway.
Can we talk about how weird and stupid this is? This is the Michigan Wolverines football team—awful in every way, from the tactical to the executive to the medical—shoving a spike into the Spartan Stadium turf and celebrating like a bunch of morons just prior to getting their shit kicked in by Michigan State 35-11.
The Yankees fan in question is Luigi Militello, owner of Luke's Bar And Grill, and the Red Sox 2013 World Series ring belongs to Drew Weber, owner of Boston's single-A affiliate Lowell Spinners. On Thursday night, Weber wore the diamond-and-ruby encrusted ring to his favorite New York restaurant and somehow left it in…
After the Rays built a five-run lead in the bottom of the seventh inning, Yunel Escobar stole third base. A couple of Red Sox players saw that as disrespectful, and it wasn't long before benches cleared and players pushed each other around.
Reader Aaron passed along this Netflix suggestion for those looking to sate their military documentary cravings. You've got your Revolutionary war fix, World War II and....what the? Yanks-Sox?
What's the difference between North Dakota and North Dakota State? Fuck if the NCAA knows. North Dakota State won the FCS title in January, but the NCAA accidentally mailed the championship banner to North Dakota, even going so far as to address it to North Dakota's athletic director by name. But get this straight:…
During a panel discussion on recruiting before the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association, Mark Dantonio stoked the flames of the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry. While Michigan State sent its head coach to the event, Brady Hoke was busy being honored as a finalist for the Bear Bryant Award. Michigan sent…
Christian Laettner was probably enlisted to coach in, and sell tickets for, the "Big Blue All Stars vs the Villains" event at UK's Rupp Arena exhibition game because the folks at Kentucky hate him. Like a villain.
"Texas A&M's team buses were vandalized in Lubbock, Texas A&M athletics director Bill Byrne said on his twitter account. 'Someone vandalized our buses in Lubbock,' he wrote. 'Excrement inside and outside of buses plus spray painted vulgarities on outside. Classy.' The Aggies traveled to Lubbock for tonight's game…
Washington Redskins tight ends: They're just like us! Chris Cooley, down-to-earth potter, also finds strange gratification in seeing Tony Romo fail. During his weekly guest spot on the LaVar and Dukes show in Washington, Cooley fed the rivalry by sharing how he really feels about the Cowboys QB:
The blog "Vin Scully Is My Homeboy" started its Friday off with a post titled, "Giants fan tries to disturb 'Don't Stop Believin' Guy,'" with DSBG being somewhat of a Chavez Ravine Idol contestant who performs Journey for his fellow attendees. The horror. And at the last home game of the season, no less!
"In an emailed comment on the resolution, University of Kansas News Service Director Jill Jess said: 'A Jayhawk is a blue bird with a red head and a big yellow beak that wears boots. It would be hard to confuse it with anyone with terrorist intent, though we admit we have been terrorizing the Tigers on the basketball…
Where to begin? Ok, the cast.
Your morning roundup for May 12, the day old coot Yogi Berra will come up with something witty to say about turning 82, even though he's only 81.
Your hated geographic rivals are suffering one of the worst humiliations in their 130-year history. What's a devoted fan who takes pleasure from the misery of others to do? Fly a goddamn airplane banner over their stadium.
Your morning roundup for April 21, the day after McDonald's "National Hiring Day" in Cleveland got real. Real violent. Like, spitting in faces and hitting people with cars violent.
Michael Lapayower is very excited about tomorrow's Yankees game against their rivals, the 0-6 Boston Red Sox. Granted, LaPayower gets very excited about every Yankees game. He probably does the same on off days, even those in the offseason, just thinking about the Yankees.
