By now, we should be over the fact that in a moment of testosterone- and adrenaline-fueled celebration, a professional athlete was careless and <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/04/metta-world-peace-earned-a-week-off">violently elbowed another player in the head</a>.

Here's Paul Pierce Tebowing, Because The Celtics Only Like Super Old Things

By | 3 Comments

This is a video of Paul Pierce "Tebowing", which caused CBS Boston to ask the question, <a href="http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/05/02/was-paul-pierce-tebowing/" target="_blank">"Is Paul Pierce Tebowing?"</a> Many people thought he was doing the move named after New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, who gets down on a knee and bows his head for a brief prayer on the field.

The Hottest New Dance: The Traveling Duhon

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://s977.photobucket.com/albums/ae252/AshleyBurns1979/?action=view&current=DuhonDance.gif" target="_blank"> The majority of the national media picked the Indiana Pacers to beat the Orlando Magic in 4 games, and the Florida sports media is so convinced that the Magic are going to lose quickly that they just stuck to making up news about Dwight Howard instead of predicting the series outcome. But on Saturday night, the Magic had other ideas, as they defeated the Indiana Pacers 81-77 in the first game of their incredibly boring first round matchup. The Magic went on an 11-0 run to close out the game, and the victory was sealed when Indiana’s Danny Granger traveled with less than 8 seconds left and down by just 3. And all the way at the end of the Magic bench, Chris Duhon, of all people, turned Granger’s one stupid play into the weekend’s best sports meme not involving Dontari Poe trying to make out with Roger Goodell. So of course the crafty minds of the Interwebs took some musical liberties with <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1n75Me7zn4&feature=related">the original video of Duhon’s travel dance</a>.
