J.J. Watt Is Fueling Up

J.J. Watt was the runner up for the AP NFL MVP award last season, finishing behind Aaron Rodgers. If the award just eludes his reach again this season, it isn’t going to be for lack of trying … or lack of eating. J.J. put his diet out in sketchy detail as he didn’t want to […]

Wheaties Beer: Breakfast Of People Who Just Don’t Care Anymore

Wheaties has always been “The Breakfast of Champions”.

Juan Carlos Olave Can Haz Cheeseburger

Argentine Football League goalie Juan Carlos Olave was harassed by opposing fans as his Belgrano team faced Racing on Sunday night. One Racing fan even threw a cheeseburger at him. Olave, doing what any hungry goaltender would do, well … see for yourself: That’s right. He pulled a Curtis Lazar and took a big ol’ […]

How Do You Cheer Up David Price? Popcorn, Of Course …

David Price has had a difficult week. He was traded from the Tigers to the Toronto Blue Jays, and it’s always an interesting transition making your way in not only a new city, but a new country. Price asked his new employer for something to make his transition easier … All I’m asking for from

John Fox Wants To Run The Chicago Bears Like A Five Star Restaurant

NFL training camps are upon us, and one of the things that is always interesting is to see how old coaches fit in with new teams.

Joc Pederson Enjoys His Ice Cream In Helmet Cups

Dodgers stud rookie Joc Pederson hit a home run in the sixth inning of the Dodgers’ battle with the New York Mets. It must have taken a lot out of him, because he fueled up afterwards with a special treat: A helmet cup full of ice cream: Your browser does not support iframes. That’s Keith […]

Wait, Dwyane Wade Has A Wine Label?

File this under things I didn’t see coming: Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been touring China to debut his very own wine label. Called simply: “Wade”, the label has been a big hit in the country that adores all things basketball. They love the NBA so much that Wade can develop a line of artisinal slightly […]

The Fresno Grizzlies, er … Fresno Tacos Are At It Again

The Fresno Grizzlies have been written about a lot on this site. First, it was their Schwab burger. Then it was their pizza with the hot dog embedded in the crust (well before Pizza Hut got on that train.) Now, they’re taking their association with food to a whole new level as for one night […]

The Culinary Skills Of Terry Rozier Are … Interesting

Celtics rookie Terry Rozier appeared on NBA TV’s “The Starters” during the NBA Summer League schedule for a chef’s segment where Rozier cooks one of his favorite sandwiches.

Adam Jones Is Not A Fan Of Cincinnati’s Signature Chili

Skyline Chili is the signature dish of the city of Cincinnati. The natives swear by the dish that is as iconic in the Queen City as WKRP in Cincinnati.

Matt Stonie Takes Down Joey Chestnut In Nathan’s Hot Dog Contest

Nathan’s hot dogs are meant to be savored, not inhaled. So in that respect the Nathan’s Fourth of July hot dog eating contest is an affront to humanity. But ESPN airs it, so it must be a bid deal. Joey Chestnut’s eight straight titles along with his rivalry with Takeru Kobayashi has elevated this event […]
