6 Seconds to History

A DNP Gets a Standing O

A DNP Gets a Standing O

The last time this little dude hit the hardwood, he was wearing Celtics colors. Isaiah Thomas did alright in them, too. It's not often anyone gets mentioned in the same Boston breath as Larry Bird, but there he is, scoring a team-record 29 points in ...

Gotta Be an Alternate Universe

Gotta Be an Alternate Universe

College football can but hope they're not gonna get a rehash of the 2012 BCS championship. It came after a slugfest in the trenches during SEC play when LSU outkicked Alabama for a 9-6 victory. One result besides tanking ratings was ...

The event that led to what's now the NHL's signature regular-season event began in Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium in 2003. They called it the Heritage Classic, with the Oilers hosting Montréal's Canadiens ...

The Wordless Quote

The Wordless Quote

Washington State's Mike Leach draws a crowd for more than his stripped-down, read-&-react offense that fires footballs all over the place. Dude's virtually guaranteed to provide a refreshing change from boring, coach-speak comments ...

What a Weird Record!

What a Weird Record!

Time for a Change of Panthers

Time for a Change of Panthers

This would just be too cool. And an upgrade. Dumping 81-year-old lecher Jerry Richardson in favor of a happening dude who's got a clue or two about who's who in the zoo. P Diddy's the sorta owner the NFL needs right now ...

Ottawa Needed a Classic

Ottawa Needed a Classic

It's been a long, long year for Ottawa. Not just season. Year. Who'd ever have thought that a Canadian team couldn't sell out a playoff game? That happened to the Senators last spring. So who'd expect them to fill the barn in the ...
