  • The 25 Biggest Celebrity Wax Figure Fails

    No, these aren’t the final projects from the art students at Madame Tussaud’s School for the Blind. They are legit wax figures from museums all over the world, museums that obviously rely heavily on the dollars of nearsighted tourists. Do we even need wax museums anymore?

  • Tiger Wood’s 6 Million Euro Island Next to Sweden is Up For Sale

    Tiger Wood’s nasty divorce from Elin Nordegren was undoubtedly ugly behind closed doors, and now a product of that is undoubtedly this quaint little island off the coast of Stockholm, Sweden. The humble cabin is 2,500-square-feet surrounded by trees, surrounded by water. I’m sure Tiger would even throw in an autograph for the very reasonable price of 6 million euro. Among a long patch of greener than green fairway for Tiger to practice, is: A 900-square-foot hunting lodge. A wine cellar big enough to hold 10 people for parties and drinking. The island comes with its own ferry, large enough to transport 12 people. A 3,200-square-foot stable and machine shop. There’s a one-mile jogging path. 2 million square meters of fishing waters.

No, things as simple as putting lights on a pole or projecting a yellow line 10 yards downfield on TV have had seismic impacts as well. In that vein, we’ll retrace a rich, clogged and sometimes unfortunate history as we explore the 200 most important events to ever happen in sports.
