  • How the Owners of All 30 NBA Teams Made Their Money

  • Two Things Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto Loves: Crack and Novelty NFL Ties

    Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto, recently admitted to using crack cocaine as if was some nonchalant activity people do in a “drunken stupor”. Exact words, “Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters outside his office. “But no, do I, am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago.” As far as I know, Toronto isn’t burning to the ground, so it would be ignorant for me to say whether or not Ford is competent enough to remain in office, but what I can tell you is he had this ‘deal-with-it’ moment when he wore this retro NFL logo tie to his press conference, where he set the record straight about his crack cocaine abuse. “No, I’m not an addict and no I do not do drugs. I made mistakes in the past and all I can do is apologize but it is what it is. And I can’t change the past and I can apologize to my family, my friends, my colleagues and the people of this great city.” Ford has refused to step down as mayor and choose alleigance to one specific NFL team.

  • Which Pro-Sport is Worth the Effort (Infographic)

    The road to professional athletics is not for the faint of heart, even the best in the biz have to practice day in and day out not to be dethrowned at the top of their game. Injuries, ailments and simply not being in the right place at the right time are all variables that can hinder an athletes worth. In this infographic by Sports Interaction  they break down how much an average player makes in the short lifespan of a pro athlete. In addition they’ve also broke down just how much top athletes get paid per advancement or succession in their particular sport. A-Rod, for example, gets paid over $253,000 per hit.

  • World’s Largest Indoor Surf Park Coming to New Jersey

    While the indoor ski slope remains empty and devoid of snow, the skydiving wind tunnels are still a bunch of holes in the floor and the huge Ferris wheel has yet to be built, developers of American Dream Meadowlands (formerly named Meadowlands Xanadu), are going to bring the world’s largest indoor surfing park of the swamps of the Meadowlands as early as January 2015.    The $1.8 billion, 2.3 million square foot shopping center (see the rendering above) was recently taken over by a Canadian company called Triple Five and they are seeking to jump start the dormant entertainment and retail mall in East Rutherford.

    Is your knowledge of ski movies limited to the amazingly awful “Ski School” and “Ski School 2″? If so, do yourself a favor and check out 2011′s “All.I.Can” from Sherpas Cinema then watch the trailer for their followup, “Into The Mind”, which is sure to be another hit.

  • The 10 Most Eccentric, Rambunctious, Or Otherwise Insane Athletes

    Insanity reigns in all of sports. Truly, there can be a case made that athletes have the potential to be the pinnacle of mental lunacy– a fact that comes with the very nature of their occupation, which is destroying their bodies for the entertainment of spectators. Luckily, RSVLTS is here to compile a list of the craziest athletes to ever step on a field, a half pipe, or the Grand Canyon. In this article, “crazy” can have several different definitions– ranging from a term of endearment to an outright declaration of  mass-fearfulness.

  • Watch Excited Red Sox Fans Flip Car [Video]

    Wicked pissah! Sawks win! What better way to celebrate than flipping over cars? Also uprooting trees seems like a fun idea. Maybe next time, though, it would be more polite to make sure no one is in the car when it gets flipped. To be fair, if the Mets ever actually won a World Series I might lose control, too.

  • 11 Fastest Players in NFL History (Infographic)

    Speed is synonymous with sports, but essential in the NFL. In it’s history, the NFL has not only produced players that can reach olympic athlete speeds, but can take or give a hit while doing it. Take a closer look at these numbers and tell me the top 5 players aren’t superhuman. Bo Jackson was every inch as skilled in real life as he was portrayed in Tecmo Bowl.  

  • What Do The Mavs Say? [Video]

  • Watch Carlos Burle Surf What May Be The Biggest Wave Ever [Video]

    While many in Europe were seeking sanctuary from the storm known as Saint Jude, which killed 11 people, surfers saw it as the perfect opportunity to catch some of the biggest waves the world has seen. The current record, from the same spot in Portugal, is 78 feet and now Carlos Burle is waiting on final word to see if he is the new titleholder. Some are saying this wave was closer to 100 feet! This is a well produced video of the event but maybe a different song would have been better. “O Fortuna” makes it sound like Burle tried but his hubris was too much and Poseidon took him to a watery grave. Why not something happy, like “Surfin’ Bird”? Nazaré Blow Up from SURFPortugal Mag on Vimeo.

  • NYPD Tries To Corral Longboarders With Giant Net, Hilarity Ensues [Video]

    Broadway Bomb is an annual gathering of thousands of longboard skaters in Manhattan that took place earlier this month. This year, the NYPD sought to corral the skaters with a net that was easily avoided by the small dudes on skateboards but was a major obstruction for the drivers in daytime New York City traffic. Speed up the footage and add “Yakkety Sax” playing in the background a la Benny Hill and you’ve got the makings of an incredible video.

  • How X-Games Champ Missy Giove Went From Gold To Trafficking Marijuana

    What do you do when you have tons of medical bills and you didn’t plan for an early retirement when you were an X Games superstar? Transport and sell hundreds of pounds of marijuana, of course! That’s the path mountain biker Missy Giove took at least. And she would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for those meddling DEA agents.

  • Ohio State Marching Band Pulls off Epic Movie Montage

    The Ohio State University marching band has a reputation that precedes itself. Known for it’s elaborate halftime shows and illustrious themes the band has had a number of it’s performances go viral, including the most recent Micheal Jackson tribute. Well this might be better. A movie montage featuring characters from some of the greatest films with a synonymous soundtrack like Superman and Jurassic Park. It is about the music still isn’t it? Sort of. The music is great, but to pull of these steps alone would be a feat (get it?), let alone playing music while doing it.

  • Ranking the 32 NFL Team According To Their All-Time Winning Percentage (With HQ Cheerleader Pictures)

    The NFL is a league of constant competition– a veritable athletic battleground where no mercy is inflicted upon the team that performed in an inferior fashion. But, what teams have been the most successful at defeating their opponents throughout the chronicled decades of the NFL? Well, RSVLTS is here to help answer that question. Courtesy of FOX Sports, this list was compiled of each team’s record– brought together in ascending order based on winning percentage. For teams that had the same winning percentage, the club with the greater amount of wins was given the favorable position. But, before beginning; the team with the most wins of all time is the Chicago Bears– a team with over 600 wins, which is a distinguished number that only two other teams can claim to exceed. Those two aforementioned teams are the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers. Inversely, only one team in NFL history has tallied losses to the point of sexcentenary excessiveness– the Arizona Cardinals, who have 680 less than desirable matchup conclusions. Also, the Cardinals have the second most ties of all time– behind only the Bears, who have 42. But, to learn the winningest team based on percentage, more »

  • 11 Artists That Should Be Featured on the Super Bowl Halftime Show

    After the Janet Jackson incident that—well—everyone knows about at this point, there was a streak of quality Super Bowl Halftime acts. Starting with Paul McCartney in 2005, Super Bowl Halftime shows have gone on to feature such respectable artists as The Who, Tom Petty, and Prince. But, in recent years, Super Bowl Halftime shows have  devolved back into the cesspool of flavor of the week pop artists—featuring artists like Bruno Mars, who will be playing the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey, and a cameo appearance by LMFAO during Madonna’s performance. This begs the question; who are some acts that would return the Super Bowl half time show to its late 2000’s sense of quality? The following 10 acts are artists who put on excellent half time shows: 11. Spinal Tap Their performance would be borderline ludicrous, if they were able to find the entrance to the stage. However, the whole “joke band” label would be somewhat difficult for them to overcome—considering how seriously the NFL takes itself. 10. Pearl Jam Quickly becoming the living fossil from the grunge era, Pearl Jam is renowned as a premier live act with great stage presence. By the off chance that the Super more »
