• Top 10 Overhyped Sports Stories of 2013 (That Didn’t Actually Matter)

    With ESPN running nearly 24-hour sports news and banter-laden segments, they need to maintain a constant flow of material. Unfortunately, this means that many of the stories that they cover are tabloid-esque sensationalist time-fillers that further invoke the interest of a population who catalyze meaningless brouhaha. A year full of soap opera-worthy drama that ESPN beat until the end of its ninth life, 2013 had no shortage of meaningless locker room tales. And, in true End of the Year fashion, RSVLTS has the best—and least meaningful—of the sporting news abyss. 10. Mark Sanchez’s Headband Does anybody remember that guy who was the New York Jets’ starting quarterback? Well, the biggest splash he made in 2013 was via his choice of headwear. And, as the media gravitated towards it, it spiraled into a story much larger than necessary. Seriously, the MLB is on during the summer, can’t tabloid NFL stories fall to the wayside during the offseason? 9. The Alex Rodriguez Saga While controversial, the Alex Rodriguez debacle in New York City hardly has the same impact as it once did. Once a player who would easily join the all time greats in Cooperstown, A-Rod is now a shamed fallen star more »

  • The 2012 MLB All-Bro Team

    Professional baseball players range from a could-be-your-math-tutor Greg Maddux to a could-be-your-county-lockup-bunkmate John Rocker. Usually we like a Bro somewhere in the middle, the kind of guy who can be paid millions of dollars to play the same sport most of us pee’d our stirrups playing and still seem like someone you’d want to hang out with. Or at least list as an acquaintance on Facebook. These aren’t the only bros in the bigs, but they’d all be a better choice to be around than Kei Igawa.

Hamels would later admit that the 93-mph fastball he threw at Harper was intentional, telling reporters including the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb, “‘I was trying to hit him. I’m not going to deny it.’” Bryce Harper’s response was swift. The young, often brash and outspoken National bent over at the hips for a moment, then calmly and professionally took his base. Harper went first-to-third on a Jayson Werth single to left in the next at bat, running on contact and never slowing down until he reached the base and turned to see if Phillies’ left fielder Juan Pierre’s throw into second went awry. What happened next had the entire baseball world talking. With Chad Tracy at the plate, and Hamels ahead 1-2, the Phillies’ left-hander threw over to first uneventfully, chasing the Nats’ right fielder back to the bag, with more »
