Pat Tillman
While the majority of Americans are out celebrating the long weekend with trips to the shore, backyard barbecues, and watching the college lacrosse tournament in Philadelphia on ESPN this Memorial Day, let's all not be naive and fail to remember the real reason why we are being given the day off from work/school. Unlike the 4th of July, Memorial Day is not a day of celebrating one of our country's greatest achievements. Rather, it is a day to remember all those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for this great nation and to honor them with the utmost respect. The stories behind ...

College Football Player Bites Teammate's Ear Off

5/28/2016 8:45pm EDT
Former Boise State's Football Player Dereck Boles Charged For Bi
Dereck Boles, a former Boise State defensive tackle, allegedly decided to bite his teammate's ear off. The players got into a fight in February at a residence and things escalated. It ended with the other guy losing a part of his ear. He was treated at a hospital and his injuries weren't life-threatening.

The other guy's a current player on the team. Likely, the one missing a part of his ear.

Boles was kicked off the football team shortly after the incident occurred. He was cut for violating the "rules." It's unclear if it had anything to do with the Mike Tyson move.

He was arrested f...

Rio 2016
It's far too late to move the 2016 Rio Olympics, unless it is to a city that already has the infrastructure from a previous hosting gig. But, it's not too late to cancel them.

Scientists say hosting the Games in Rio would be "unethical" due to the risks associated with the Zika virus.

On Friday, more than 100 health experts signed a letter, demanding that the Summer Olympics be moved or postponed. The letter was addressed to the World Health Organization and it calls for the body to pressure the International Olympic Committee to cancel the Games.

“The fire is already burning, but th...

Nerlens Noel
It's pretty safe to say that the Boston Celtics are all set on guards for both the present and for the future with Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, Isaiah Thomas, and Evan Turner all on their roster. On May 17th, the Celtics were awarded the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft Lottery via the Brooklyn Nets' selection that Boston acquired in the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett trade in 2013. With forwards Ben Simmons (LSU) and Brandon Ingram (Duke) being the top two overall prospects in this year's draft class, the green teamers were praying that the Celtics would be able to land either the No. 1...

Dwyane Wade-LeBron James Friendship Has Powerful Haters

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade
Pat Riley doesn't appreciate LeBron James and Dwyane Wade's personal and professional friendship. Actually, according to a profile about D-Wade and LeBron's relationship, it's deeper than that. ESPN reported that the Heat president "quietly detests the Wade-James friendship."

Wade says there's absolutely no reason to think that he and LeBron can't compete against each other.

"The biggest misconception, for myself and LeBron, is that we can't compete against each other because we're friends," Wade says. "We're two of the biggest competitors in the game. It's just a slap in the face."
