You gotta choke a lotta kids to get 900 career wins

Like him or hate him, Bob Knight made history last night by upsetting the No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies 68-53, winning his 900th career game. Knight is the only Division I men’s basketball coach to reach the big 9-0-0, so we figured now is as good a time as any to relive some of the […]

12-year-old boy has one helluva whale shark of a tale

When man and wild animals cross paths, the results can often be tragic for the humans. However, sometimes the odds are simply stacked against the beasts and that’s when amazing things can happen for man, or should we say boy. On New Year’s Day, 12-year-old Aidan Murray Medley was fishing off the coast of Florida […]

Deanna, is there something you need to tell us?

We were watching Sunday’s game between Green Bay and St. Louis and we felt honored and privileged to watch the fourth quarter pass gently float from the rugged fingers of the NFL’s ironman and fall into Donald Driver’s hands seven yards away. At that moment, Favre became a football god, passing Dan Marino’s all-time passing […]

Now Darren McFadden sees the SEC single-game rushing record, now he doesn’t (sorta)

On Sunday, Adrian Peterson showed off his skillz once again to the NFL. But we’re thinking that he might have just been doing his best Darren McFadden impression. Of course, Peterson can’t afford to have the same thing happen to him that happened to McFadden if he wants to hold onto the single game all-time […]

All hail the new king of rushing! All hail King AD!

Maurice Jones-Drew was probably feeling pretty darn good about himself after he ran a kickoff back for 100 yards, tying his game at 14 as time expired in the first quarter. Unfortunately, the good feeling was short lived as the Jaguars proceeded to get blasted by the Saints over the final three quarters and lost […]

Hideous uniforms disorient Lions, allowing Kevin Curtis to go bananas

The Eagles uniforms might be the ugliest duds ever donned, but Donovan McNabb and Kevin Curtis sure did like the way they fit. The duo hooked up for a league record tying 205 yards on nine catches in the first half of Philly’s annihilation of the Lions. With touchdowns of 68, 12 and 43 yards […]

Dec 18 in Sports History: Dolphins go undefeated

In 1972: With a 16-0 shutout of the Baltimore Colts, the Miami Dolphins (14-0) clinched the first-ever undefeated, untied regular season in NFL history. The ’72 Dolphins are not considered by many to be the most dominant team in history, although they did lead the league in scoring (385 pts) and gave up the fewest […]

Dec 12 in Sports History: A-Rod’s big payday

Broke the bank In 2000: Free agent shortstop Alex Rodriguez cashed in big time, with a 10-year, $252 million dollar contract from the Texas Rangers. Of course, it broke every conceivable record for amount of money paid to any athlete in any sport. In 2004, he was traded to the Yankees, and A-Rod is still […]

Nov 29 in Sports History: the first Army-Navy game

They didn’t even have photos! In 1890: The first Army-Navy game was played at West Point, NY, with Navy winning 24-0. Considered by many as one of the greatest traditions in sports, it is annually played on the last weekend of the college football season and has been played at numerous sites, including the Polo […]

Nov 20 in Sports History: Sweetness breaks the killer’s single game rushing record

In 1977: Walter Payton broke O.J. Simpson’s single-game NFL rushing record with 275 yards on 40 carries in a 10-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field. Simpson had set the record a year earlier with 273. “Sweetness’” performance sparked a run to the playoffs for the struggling Bears, who made the postseason for […]
