    Dennis Rodman: 5 WWE Promos (Maybe The Only 5) That Were More Insane Than His CNN Rant

    Dennis Rodman's relationship with North Korea started with the best intentions (to film a documentary and help raise money to build a basketball court for some kids), but somewhere along the way, in a misguided twist, Rodman's trip became one of the more bizarre and, to many Americans, infuriating c ...

    Johnny Manziel's Monster Heel Push Is Underway

    Growing up a wrestling fan, I always rooted for the heels (wrestling parlance for "villains"). While my friends patriotically thanked their maker that Hulk Hogan saved us all from the Iron Sheik's reign of terror in early 1984, I was rooting for "Rowdy" Roddy Piper to hit Jimmy Snuka with another c ...

    A Musical Celebration of the Oreo Cookie

    Do you like cookies? No? Well at least now we know who the hidden aliens are and can send Roddy Piper to deliver fisticuffs and quips about the surplus of ass-kickings inversely proportionate to the scarcity of bubble gum. Seriously, though, cookies are awesome, and it was on this day 101 years ago ... More >>

    In the wake of Texas A&M's landscape-changing 29-24 win over the Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend, with his fame escalating from "local cult hero" to "full fledged Heisman candidate," Johnny Manziel and his family began the process on trademarking his catchy "Johnny Football" moniker.

    Notre Dame (Kind Of) Joins The ACC -- 4 Winners, 4 Losers

    Times change, and in the constantly evolving (or if you're the Big East, constantly imploding) landscape of college conference affiliation, they can change at the drop of a hat.

    The 3 Best Musician/Wrestling Tag Teams

    The world of wrestling and the world of music have an awful lot in common. You've got you over-the-top characters, the lights, the spectacle, the flashy costumes and choreography. (See this, in fact.) Pretty much the only thing separating them are the injuries, and depending on the rock show not eve ... More >>

    Gorilla Monsoon: A Birthday Playlist For A Wrestling Legend

    Growing up as I did in the '80s, professional wrestling was more than entertainment, it was religion. The Hulkster, Roddy Piper, Randy Savage and Andre were all unapologetically over-the-top, one-dimensional; comic characters that did glorious battle for dubious reasons. It was a great time to watch ... More >>

    Game Time: Kentucky Derby -- Ten "Two Minute Events" More Exciting Than Horses Galloping

    Between-race entertainment at the Derby​I love horse racing. Actually, to be clear, I love the act of going to the racetrack -- any racetrack -- and sitting in the bleachers (do they call them "bleachers" at a racetrack?) with three or four of my buddies, drinking about twelve beers, eating roughl ...

    Game Time: Review Of ESPN's 30 For 30: The U

    Whenever people ask me what the best sporting event is that I've ever been to, the answer is always an easy one: October 15, 1988...Notre Dame 31, Miami 30. It had all the critical elements of a personal "best sporting event ever" --- Heated rivalry? Check. Brawl before the game in the tunnel? ... More >>
