Your First Billiards Doping Scandal

I’ve heard of doping in cycling, as well as steroids use in baseball and football and weight lifting, but I’ve never heard of anyone doping to improve their billiards stroke.

‘Midget Wrestling’ Causing a Stir

I’ve presented the new sport of midgets in MMA previously on the site. I’ve also relayed the chronicles of the Dwarf Games held in Seattle over the summer, in case you missed it.

Is Going to Games Too Expensive?

Per Ian Thomsen at SI (to whom Stern likely dropped the test balloon): Commissioner David Stern is considering new plans to create five full-fledged…Read More

David Beckham’s Kiss Makes Girl Faint

You can pretty much rely on me to keep this area Grammy-free. You and I both know why we all come here — and it’s not for my CD reviews. Even still, I couldn’t help but not pass this story up. For anyone who’s seen groupies in action, this might not be much of a…Read More

LBS Sydney Australia Pics and Video

OK, so I promised some pictures from the trip, and I wasn’t lying when I said I was going on a global growth project. First up is a short video compilation (well worth two minutes of your time). After the jump are a few pictures (not that you give a crap). Here’s the vid: Some…Read More
