Literally hundreds of shooting guards in the NBA have come and gone through the years, yet only a few are recognized as dominant forces to be reckoned with. Year after year, these prolific scorers end up torching their opponents to the point of frustration on a consistent basis, even after being double or triple-teamed on many occasions. As it stands, only two shooting guards occupy space at the center of the NBA’s top 10 all-time [...]
It was a major surprise when Dale Earnhardt, Jr. decided to leave the racing team founded by his father for Hendrick Motorsports in 2007, but it has been one of the best decisions in his career. Hendrick Motorsports has helped revive Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s career that was starting to get stagnant at DEI.
While the move from DEI was not that successful at the beginning, it has completely paid off for Earnhardt. He has been able to contend for the NASCAR championship each of the last two seasons, [...]

New Orleans has a lot to offer but the city by the bay has more than its fair share of great spectator sports, in our opinion. Whether you live here and just need to set your New Orleans home security and feed the dog to take in a game or you’re travelling from afar, here are a few N.O. haunts you just can’t afford to miss:
Louisiana Superdome: The New Orleans Saints play here and it’s also where the NCAA Sugar Bowl is held each year, too. If you’re looking for an energy filled afternoon or evening you really can’t do any better than a football game here.
New Orleans Arena: The New Orleans Hornets call the Arena home and it’s quite a sight to behold. It’s where the Hornets are slowly working their way back to glory so you can take in a game on the cheap!
Jesters: the NO Jesters play in the US World Development League and if soccer’s your thing you may catch one of the next-big-things by taking in a game here! It’s a great way to entertain the kids, too.
The thought of anyone ever doing better than Richard Petty is almost unimaginable. He is the undisputed champion when it comes to Nascar. In many ways he is the Michael Schumacher of American racing. He is a man who won 200 races and SEVEN Nascar titles. There is really no chance that anyone is ever going to get close to him. Chances are that he will have this record all to himself for a very, very long time.
It is not good to tempt fate and there is always a chance that [...]
Of all of the controversy in the sports world, baseball’s steroid era is one of the elephants in the room. While icons such as Mark McGwire and Roger Clemens have been reprimanded by the sports world for their use of performance enhancing drugs, the most polarizing of the bunch might be Barry Bonds. Bonds broke the home run record, but many feel that his achievements were a fraud due to his use of PED’s. He is scorned now, but what will his legacy look like a decade or two from now?
The best comparison [...]
When examining the future of mixed martial arts (MMA), it is best to determine the rate of growth due to it’s popularity since it’s inception, as well as, conglomerate product sales related to the sport. The mixed martial arts realm has taken a stronghold on the heirarchy of contact sports as of late. What was once the usual recreational and scholastic sport of wrestling athletes, MMA has transformed with boxing and martial arts, making a hybrid sport very similar to street self defense tactics. The benefits of such a sport skyrocketed interests from adolescents to adults from around the [...]
If one were to look at sports from all around the world, then it has to be the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona. These are two European soccer/football teams that play in Spain. Their rivalry has probably gone on ever since the two clubs were created. Real Madrid is the premier club of Spain’s capital city Madrid. They have won the most La Liga titles and have 9 European cups. They are the club of Spain, or at least that is what they want everyone to believe. [...]
