These Red Sox. We just can't quit on them. Because they don't seem ready to quit on this season. Chad Finn joined me earlier to talk about the road ahead, who we'd like to stay (and go), Jon Lester, Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and more. More
On the heels of Monday night's Home Run Derby and last night's endless, "Martian Chronicles"-length retirement party for Derek Jeter masquerading as the MLB All-Star Game, we could have had a lot of fun at baseball's expense in this week's Knuckle Awards. But that fruit hangs a little bit too low, so in an effort to challenge ourselves, and you, our faithful followers/award show flunkies, we decided to examine another prevalent, ongoing occurrence in the world of sports this past week, NBA free agency . Thus, without further ado, we present to you an all NBA edition of the Knuckles. Ball don't lie.
Bike polo is not for the faint of heart. Though it's an international sport, played at the highest caliber around the world since the nineteenth century, hardcourt bike polo (played on concrete rather than grass) is a game that remains obscure for many— but it's right in our backyard. More
We talked Red Sox round-robin style this week with Steve Silva and Chad Finn from Boston.com Sports, shining a light on the few bright spots of the season so far, listing changes we'd like to see in the second half, and reminiscing about the Good Olde Days, when the All-Star Game was actually a blast to watch.

Forget about that NASCAR race up in New Hampshire this weekend. Forget that Argentina and Germany are clashing in the FIFA World Cup final on Sunday. Forget about how the NFL preseason is creeping closer and closer. More
Back after a break for the holiday, but the layoff barely phased the Knuckleheads of the sports world. Independence Day be damned, The Knuckles are stronger than ever. This week we stay on an international level, tackling bad World Cup officiating, and some more domestic and local Knuckleheads as well. One thing is for sure: Even with a week off, there's no shortage of worthy Knuckles recipients. Knuckleheads are everywhere and we know where to find 'em! So without any further ado, let's get right into this week's winners.
My girlfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday a month ago, and without hesitation, I demanded that she purchase tickets for us to see Mick Foley perform stand up comedy at Kowloon in Saugus on June 28. While most of my snooty hip friends rolled their eyes at the idea of seeing the hardcore legend, I had been a loyal Foley fan for years, even after passing over my wrestling phase of fandom that so many other pubescent boys felt in the late '90s and early '00s. Chinese food? Exotic liquors? A night with Mrs. Foley’s baby boy and laughter? 8th grade me would kill to be 26-year old me right now. As it turns out, the result was just as strange and entertaining as I anticipated.
From Tim Howard's sixteen saves to Julian Greene's goal, USA-Belgium was quite the match. The only disappointment was the outcome. I joined Adam 12 to break down the loss, look ahead at what's to come for the USMNT, and make predictions for the next four World Cup matches. More
Yesterday afternoon the US were eliminated from the World Cup following a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Belgium. Despite the upset, fans are still praising goalkeeper (and new national hero) Tim Howard's record-setting performance. Howard's public praise is well deserved as he set a new World Cup record by making 16 saves in one match, the most since 1966. Below is a video of all of Howard's 16 saves against Belgium. More
