Nancy Kerrigan’s Dad Dies And Her Brother Is Arrested

Poor Nancy Kerrigan. She became fodder for made-for-TV movies back in 1994, when six weeks before the winter Olympics, the ex-husband of her figure-skating rival, Tonya Harding, clubbed her right knee with a police baton.

Catfight On The Soccer Field

Ah, Friday. What better day for a catfight video? Only, in this case, the “fight” is actually a “sport,” albeit a game in which the ladies of the Brigham Young University and New Mexico State University University of New Mexico soccer teams exhibit some very unsportsmanlike conduct.

Toenail Removal Surgery And Other Scary Athlete Behavior

Athletes take their chosen sports super seriously. I mean, that’s why I train year-round to be a competitive eater (I’ll get you yet, Kobayashi!).

NFL Players Accent Their Uniforms With Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Yesterday, while watching football, I made a snarky comment about an announcer’s flamboyant shirt-tie combination only to learn he was wearing the baby pink striped tie in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Really?

Do You Cheer For Your Boyfriend’s Favorite Sports Teams?

Last night Jennifer Garner appeared on “The Jay Leno Show” to promote her film “The Invention of Lying.” Or so she hoped. Before Jay would let her talk about the movie, Jennifer had to recite the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup (since husband Ben Affleck is such a huge fan).
