Remember When Darren Sproles And Kansas State Smashed Oklahoma In The 2003 Big 12 Championship?

I remember telling Kenny Masenda six years ago that the scariest man in the NFL played tailback, wore #43 and was no taller than 5’5″. His name was Darren Sproles. On Monday night, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled victory out their backsides in a come-from-behind 30-27 win over the Indianapolis...

15 Years Ago, Michael Vick Flipped His Way Into Our Hearts As A Virginia Tech Freshman

Will all due respect to that non-suit-wearing quarterback at the NFL Draft of the New York Jets named Geno Smith, I want Michael Vick to play. This is just how it has to be for me. As long as Michael Dwayne Vick is wearing shoulder pads, I want to see the man play football. I don’t care if the...

Spatted Up: Here’s The 5 Freshest Football Uniform Looks Of The Weekend

By Richard Boadu / @6magazine If you’re 25 and up, you’ve heard the old football coach rhetoric, “Play for the team, not for yourselves.” If a player is wearing anything “flashy” like an armband, spatted cleats, etc., he’s selfish, a showoff, not about the team. Fashion sense is fleeting...

Because Everything About The Ray Rice Story Sucks

Ray Rice isn’t the first person to put his hands on his significant other. He will certainly not be the last either. The biggest NFL story of 2014 hasn’t been the beginning of a crazy football season, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts having more coke than any reference Jeezy could spit...
