The Arizona Diamondbacks are coming off another average season after winning the NL West back in 2011. The Diamondbacks have been very busy this offseason after adding the likes of Mark Trumbo, Addison Reed and Bronson Arroyo. With Kirk Gibson at the helm and the additions this offseason, I’m predicting some positive things for the Diamondbacks this season.

As Total Sports Blog’s resident TV writer, I have officially geeked the hell out when it comes to HBO’s new series, True Detective. Enough so that I’ve decided to split my recaps into two parts from now on. I will have an episode recap that will come out either the night of or early next morning and then I’ll have a blog post where I’ll make random observations about the show, theorize, and post tweets, tumblrs or other interesting articles about the show. I will be using this format for most of the shows that I will be covering from now on. Now, on to the theorizing! Read the rest of this entry »

Heat's James reacts after being called for a foul against the Spurs during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio


LeBron James got his nose broken last week in a game vs the Thunder at the hands of one of the league’s dirtier players, Serge Ibaka.  He sat out a couple of games but is back on the court vs the New York Knicks tonight, wearing what he calls his “Bane mask”.  Check out ‘Bron ‘Bron’s mask after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »

Pierre the Pelican was absolutely terrifying until New Orleans decided to give him a beak-job.  But only a few short weeks after debuting a new mascot that doesn’t immediately make children cower in fear, the Pelicans have decided to turn the creepy factor up a notch.  I give you, the King Cake Baby: Read the rest of this entry »

If there was a 4 point shot, no doubt JR would lead the league in attempts

If there was a 4 point shot, no doubt JR would lead the league in attempts

I’ve seen several reports across the internet contemplating the addition of a “4-point line” to NBA courts, which would effectively take pro basketball one step closer to MTV’s Rock N’ Jock Basketball rules.  Seriously?  A 4-pointer?  Why is this even being discussed?

What’s the difference between “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” it’s that Fallon can use the term “butt cheeks” to entertain you. It’s WAY better than going over weird newspaper articles and classified. 

While Dale Earnhardt, Jr. may have captured the 2014 Daytona 500 on Sunday evening, that doesn’t mean the 42 other drivers went home empty-handed, if you’re Fallon.

Fallon dusted off his “Athlete Superlatives” bit, which was used on his “Tonight Show” debut with Olympians, and gave some of the well known faces in NASCAR a little roasting.

Enjoy the laughter after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

As many of TSB’s loyal readers may already know, Raymond Felton was arrested on felony gun charges late last night. His wife, who recently just filed for divorce, brought in a unlicensed weapon to a police station and gave a statement saying that Ray Ray waved it at her at one point. If I was his wife, I wouldn’t have felt threatened because as all Knicks fans already know, Felton rarely ever hits his target when he’s shooting. Anyways, the internet had a field day this morning…..making a meme out of the entire situation. Let’s take a look see and have a good laugh at Ray Ray’s expense.  Read the rest of this entry »

J.R. is gonna J.R., I suppose. We all know he’s a batshit crazy lunatic. Throwing bows at Jason Terry during the playoffs. Partying with Rihanna during the playoffs last year. Shooting under 40% for this season. Let’s not forget that he shot a three pointer with a game tied against the Houston Rockets with 21 SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME. Read the rest of this entry »
