Food is the love second nature to the event that occurs—that is the actual event labelled 'sport.'   Nothing satisfies the fan's craving more than the food that motivates the appetite. If it is the greasy goodness of a fast food joint or the sophisticated tenure of the pre-madonna (sorry, A-Rod) higher than thou cuisine—the food experience of a sporting event rivals the event itself.

By Ezri Silver On June - 22 - 2010
WAGs are diamonds in the rough. The lottery of being a professional athlete is only trumped by the lottery victory of the WAG that goes along with the salary. Welcome to the world sport where the perk is the partner. Group A has certainly given us some drama this World Cup. The French hate their coach and one of the best French players is back in Paris. Meanwhile, the South African hosts are being gracious in that they are laying out the welcome mat and being walked over (let's hope they keep their girlfriends better than ...

The following are a compendium of both trained and untrained amazing animals for your amusement ...
"What you talkin' 'bout Willis?"

Here are the ground rules for inclusion in this hall of shame presentation: 1. You can be famous as an adult and can be a professional but ended up failing in real life. 2. Drugs, crime, ...

"We're going streaking!," with those immortal words, Frank the Tank revealed to the world what most already know—a pastime within a pastime—streaking.

Underdeveloped nations, developed nations, despotic nations all have their revelers in this class of person (athlete if you will) in a class all of their own. Balanced on a mixture of insanity and inebriation, fans of all sports—be it baseball, basketball, cricket, football, rugby, soccer (football ...

If the home team doesn't make it, root for the division team. 3. If the division team doesn't make it, root for the league/conference team. Then came New York. The real Mets fans (those with passion) hate the Yankees and the real Yankees fans (those with passion) hate the Mets. Same for the Jets and Giants. Jets fans are usually Mets fans and Yankees fans are usually Giants fans. Any other combinations and you are a dysfunctional ...
