Rougarou Attack: Regis Prograis Set to Become the Star Boxing Needs

The Rougarou is defined as a legendary creature in Laurentian French communities linked to European notions of the werewolf. For boxer Regis Prograis, the nickname “Rougarou” is the perfect fit. Prograis doesn’t just box, he fights. He tries to destroy his opponent. He is the Rougarou.

Palin Looks to Conquer World’s Longest, Toughest Race

NASCAR’s biggest race turned out to be a wild one on Sunday, as multiple crashes played a major role at the Daytona 500. If you can’t wait another week until more racing action, there’s another race underway in Alaska right now.

Kid Friendly WWE Makes Pro Wrestling a Family Affair

Thanks to my children, I am a big fan of professional wrestling once again. I loved the WWF as a kid, but as I grew up, I grew out of my fondness of the squared circle. Now, I’m back…and I’m loving every minute of it.

Tebow Time: ‘Night to Shine’ Prom Night Bigger Than Ever

While Nick Foles is celebrating his impressive Super Bowl victory, another Christian quarterback is also displaying MVP traits this week. Former Florida Gators and NFL signal caller Tim Tebow is helping to make this weekend a very special one for thousands of people.

Some Former Mets Could Be Amazin’ As New Manager

Now that Terry Collins has stepped down as manager of the New York Mets, the search is on for a new skipper in Queens. The likelihood of Mets GM Sandy Alderson bringing in a “Sandy Alderson guy” is probably very high.

NBA Star Chris Paul May Have Threatened The President of The United States

After President Trump took on NFL protesters and NBA cry babies this weekend, lemming players predictably got their jock straps and gym shorts in a collective wad. They fired off their tough guy tweets, standing together against Trump because that’s what they do. The actual tweets from players ranged from stupid and silly to insulting and threatening.

Pitcher Completes No-Hitter Without Realizing It

For the first time since 1994, a no-hitter has been recorded in an Eastern League playoff game. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know about it, because neither did the man on the mound when the final out was recorded.

Runnin’ Rebel: Son Of Shark and Mama Grizzly Hunt RINO In Nevada

The man whose dad was known as “Shark” is hunting a big RINO in Nevada. Danny Tarkanian, son of basketball coaching legend Jerry Tarkanian, is running for U.S. Senate in Nevada. Tarkanian is a strong Trump supporter and his outsider campaign has already earned him the endorsement of the ultimate conservative powerhouse, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Power Ranger: Quiet Adrián Beltré Marches Loudly Towards Cooperstown

This week Adrián Beltré collected his historic 3000th hit when he smoked a double against Baltimore. The Texas Rangers slugger is one of only 31 players to reach this plateau. But, a closer look at how Beltré got here shows he is in a class all by himself.

Timmy Walk Off: While Haters Keep on Hatin’, Tim Tebow Just Loves Lucie

Always consider the source. In this day and age of fake news, that advice rings more true than ever. Those words make a lot of sense when it comes to Tim Tebow as well. The Tebow haters are loud and plentiful. The weird, visceral hate for the man is of Palin-like proportions. Tebow’s crime? Being a Christ follower, a good guy, and a heck of an athlete.

So Far, an Amazing Mess – but Mets Still Gotta Believe

There’s no reason to sugar coat things. Right now, the Amazin’ Mets are more like an amazing mess. It’s true: Injuries galore, clubhouse drama, and a host of bad losses has led to a very underwhelming start for New York’s National League club. That said, it’s not even June and even though you wouldn’t know it from the mood of most Mets fans, there is still reason to say Ya Gotta Believe.

DeMarcus Cousins has raised his scoring average in four consecutive NBA seasons

King Size Mistake: Sacramento Screws Up Royally In Dealing DeMarcus Cousins

The NBA All-Star Weekend has come and gone. Things were almost pretty pedestrian. Other than the game being played in New Orleans instead of North Carolina (because spineless Adam Silver and friends pulled a Bon Jovi and caved to the PC police, moving the festivities due to the Tarheel State’s ‘bathroom bill’), there wasn’t much buzz going into things. Other than wondering if either team would score 200 points, the break seemed to serve as just that for fans–a break from basketball. That all changed after the Sacramento Kings made a royally ridiculous transaction that sent shock waves throughout the association.

Donald Trump, a Good Sport from Way Back

The first time I attended a professional football game two USFL squads rather than NFL franchises played. The Michigan Panthers and the New Jersey Generals collided in the Garden State, and for a boy who had never been to a game until then, it may as well have been the Super Bowl.

Bartolo Colon three weeks shy of his 43rd birthday, sent a 1-1 pitch from Padres starting pitcher James Shields into the left field bleachers in his 226th career at-bat

Bartolo Colon Unlikely Homer Is Tops With Topps, Fans

Bartolo Colon is pitching very well, winning league awards, and his team is a legitimate contender to make a long postseason run. Sounds about right…for the Cleveland Indians of the late 1990s, that is.

Kramer 2017! Sarah Palin Calls on Trump, Kasich, Cruz to Unite Behind Packers Legend

The two-and-a-half candidates still seeking the Republican nomination for president (John Kasich counts as a half because he can’t mathematically obtain the required delegates) don’t agree on much these days, but Sarah Palin is calling on all of them to unite behind a cause that Wisconsin voters surely support. The former governor of Alaska is imploring the White House hopefuls to help push a former NFL star over the goal line, straight in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Carolina Panthers Got Cat Class and They Got Cat Style

After throttling Arizona on Sunday by a count of 49-15, Carolina heads to the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history. The team is talented on both sides of the ball and their coaching staff meshes perfectly with personnel. Panthers football is all about execution and fun. But while the schemes and game plans that have led them to a 17-1 record thus far have been applauded, the enthusiasm and effervescence they bring to the field has been sadly panned by too many.

MLK Day of Service: College Basketball Players Team with Kids to Give Back

Basketball has become a staple on Martin Luther King Day. Every year multiple NBA games are played throughout the day in which we honor the amazing civil rights leader. In the Philadelphia area there’s another tradition that focuses on Reverend King and hoops, all while helping to feed the hungry.

The Kick No Good: The Treatment of Vikings K Blair Walsh Disgusting

Inexcusable. Awful. Pathetic. All appropriate ways to describe the culmination of the Minnesota Vikings season. But, we’re not talking about Blair Walsh missing a short field goal that would’ve won the Vikes’ NFC Wild Card round playoff game as time expired. Instead it’s the treatment Walsh received after his attempt sailed wide left that was downright disgusting.
