When it was revealed that the New Orleans Saints staff were running a “bounty program” which rewarded players for inflicting injuries on opposing players, shockwaves were sent throughout the sports world. People were, quite rightly, aghast at the idea of player bonuses for laying hits that resulted in other athletes being carted off the field or landing on the injured player list. The NFL conducted an investigation and came down incredibly harshly on the Saints, suspending coach Sean Payton for the entire 2012 season and banning defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from the NFL indefinitely.

While most of us were lost in deep sleep and hopeful dreaming of our favorite baseball team’s winning this year’s World Series last Tuesday night, (unless you stayed up to catch the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics game in Japan that began at 6:10 ET, 3:10 PT) Dodgers owner Frank McCourt picked his successor as the next official owner of the historically famous Los Angeles Dodgers. A group led by Magic Johnson is expected to cross the Ts and dot the Is to complete a $2 billion purchase, shattering the record for the most a sports More >

Why do you stick up for your team in tough times? North Side Chicagoers, Red Sox fans, Pirates fans, Padres fans, Nationals/Expos fans, Mets fans, etc.
You root for your team because you know that one day greatness will come. Sometimes Kevin Millar is correct when he predicts you will win the series. The ball rolls through Buckner’s legs sometimes. Steve Garvey can whack a home run off Lee Smith and send you to the World Series. Nationals fans, your greatness will come. It always does.

It’s almost opening day and here’s this year’s first power rankings for Major League Baseball.
1. Anaheim Angels
The addition of Pujols makes this a very powerful team. They are deep in the outfield and have some great pitching. Their biggest concern heading into the 2012 season is the bullpen and the left side of their infield. Can Erick Aybar and Alberto Callaspo produce in this lineup?
2. Texas Rangers
After being a strike away from winning the World Series, twice, can the Rangers make it back? Will the addition of Yu Darvish pay off? The Rangers do have a More >

Today’s technological advances in the social media world connect sport fans with their favorite athletes. Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook allow fans to follow their favorite athletes, view their messages, pictures, updates and even post messages to the athletes in the hope of a response. The invisible line between sports fans and these athletes has forever been erased.
Some of the top social media accounts from athletes include: Chad OchoCinco, Dwight Howard, Lance Armstrong, LeBron James and Cristiano Ronaldo (http://www.tweeting-athletes.com/TopAthletes.cfm). Recently, an unlikely story of Antonio Brown befriending a Steelers’ fan emerged which developed into More >
