Zach Ertz gives TD ball to huge Eagles fan Mike Trout

Sometimes you never know who you’ll see at any given sporting event. At a meaningless Eagles game at the end of the season, maybe you’ll find AL MVP Mike Trout sitting in the front row. And maybe then Zach Ertz will give a TD ball to Trout. Trout, who hails from Millville, NJ, has made […]

Jim Harbaugh hasn’t shied away from speaking his mind in 2016 on a variety of topics, especially as his Michigan team came so close yet so far away from making it to the College Football Playoff. Since we wouldn’t want you to spend the last days of the year trying to search out those comments […]

Auburn linebacker hits crazy, between-the-legs bowling trick shot

If Auburn needs a backup long snapper in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma, maybe they should line up Deshaun Davis, if this video is any indication: While that’s not the toughest bowling trick shot ever attempted, doing it between your legs and facing the wrong way certainly ups the difficulty, even if you’re not amazing […]
