Everything Else

Love Him or Loathe Him, Dick Vitale Makes the World a Better Place

Many admire his passion for the game of college basketball.  Others want to throw up just having to listen to a two-hour ESPN broadcast that features college basketball’s most passionate figure —  a man who gives a new meaning to the word “color” in the title of color commentator.  It’s not difficult to imagine why…Read More

Video: Bull’s Horn Goes Through Matador’s Chin and Out Mouth

Watch at your own risk. Rick Chandler had this classic line to describe the incident, “At least one guy in Spain now knows what a trout feels like when it gets caught.” Precisely. Just another example why it’s a bad idea to mess with nature. Or larger animals, in this case. Sources: Well, this is…Read More

This Guy Needs to Calm Down

I love when an announcer shows a little emotion while calling a game.  When the situation calls for it, a play-by-play broadcaster can make a moment that much more memorable and say some things that will stay with you for the rest of your life.  This is absolutely not one of those situations.  Maybe you…Read More

In some absurd transitive logic, some people are suggesting that lacrosse is the problem because they’re combining this story with the…Read More

Great Predictions in LBS History

Getting prepared for this week’s NFL draft, I began looking at some of our past draft stories here at LBS. At that point it became pretty clear to me that we have been pretty nails on our predictions. With that in mind, I’d like to pump up our credibility before the 2010 NFL draft gets…Read More

Robbie Maddison’s Death-Defying Corinth Canal Jump in Greece

I would start off by telling you that Robbie Maddison is certifiably crazy, but you already knew that. His last two New Years Eve jumps — the most recent at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas — confirmed that. Maddison really took things to new heights on Thursday by attempting his most challenging jump ever….Read More

The Sports Adulterers Hall of Fame

With Tiger Woods returning to competitive golf this week despite the recent revelations of his extramarital affairs, it got me thinking about other notorious spouse cheaters in sports. If we were to turn our backs on all the athletes who have cheated on their wives, who would we have left? If we were to shun…Read More
