BCS Mess: Fearless picks on all 34 bowls in ’08-09

With the BCS computers on high alert for possible attacks from mobs of disgruntled Longhorn fans, college football has once again seemingly shit the bed.  Although the bombshell dropped tonight (OU/FLA) was expected,  message boards and blogs are blowing up all over the internet criticizing the current BCS selection process, and any chaos in previous years will pale in comparison […]

After all these years, the CBS college football intro still rules

When I was a wee sprat growing up in the industrial jungles of the Midwest, Saturday morning was (and still is) the highlight of my week.  Long before booze and crippling hangovers ruined many a weekend, my youthful exuberance allowed me to wake up bright and early every weekend in the fall for an unhealthy […]

2008 world series game one diary: A tribute to the immortal joe buck

Dear diary,                          I am forcing myself to watch Game One of the 2008 World Series.  Although drinking kerosene would be more entertaining and less painful, here we go……

Good Gawd: Sports Ugliest Athletes

Some guys have all the luck.  Tom Brady has Super Bowl rings and Giselle, Derek Jeter has celebrated World Series titles along with dating a slew of ridiculously hot women, and Marko Jaric has inexplicably bagged the hottest woman on earth.  Although these stories can be quite inspiring to an everyday dreamer such as myself, the fact […]

Gold Medal Worthy Olympics Dwarfed by NBC’s Bronze Medal Worthy Coverage

Leave it to NBC….The global behemoth that inexplicably brought us the ill fated XFL, and committed blasphemy by remaking 80’s staple American Gladiators, has once again completely and utterly shit the bed, this time in their coverage of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.  After viewing approximately 3 days of NBC’s pitiful attempt to bring “magic” into my living room, it […]

Manny Ramirez walks into green monster, teleports to L.A.

Boston, MA At approximately 8:37 EST last night, disgruntled Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez stepped into Fenway Park’s fabled Green Monster during the top of the 6th inning in a 9-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.  Fans, used to “Manny being Manny,” assumed the batshit crazy slugger retired into the Monster to take a piss […]

Steelhead sees “The Dark Night,” Hilarium Ensues

Last night, after recovering from a crippling hangover that it appears some of you already know about, I went to a midnight screening of The Dark Knight: The Imax Experience.  For the record, I am not a huge fan of superhero movies, with the exception of 80’s classics Teen Wolf and Zapped.  My expectations were understandably low, but the […]

“Jason” Morneau Wins Home Run Derby while Hamilton, Utley Steal Show

The 2008 State Farm Home Run Derby was mandatory viewing for old Steelhead, compliments of the editors.  I haven’t been a fan of the derby in 10 years, and honestly would have rather watched a WNBA game last night.  After 30 minutes of kicking and screaming, I finally sat down, cracked a Blue Ribbon, and […]

13 athletes who deserve to be chokeslammed by “The Big Show”

It is commonplace to hear the term “cancer in the locker room” or “prima donna” when describing certain athletes.  No matter how rich, talented, and loved these guys are, it just isn’t enough.  I carry a strong amount of disdain for said guys, and have concluded that if I was teammates with such a character, he would get relentlessly […]

Packers Interested in Jason Taylor…..And 10 Other Irrelevant Blurbs

Wow.  The Green Pay Packers have expressed interest in acquiring all-world defensive end Jason Taylor from the Dolphins.  I just spit my PBR all over the monitor after reading that.  This is probably one of the most shocking headlines of the last quarter century. 

Celtics Destroy Kobe, Lakers….It’s Gino Time

My dislike for both the Lakers and Kobe Bryant is not something I spend time hiding.  These feelings have been on my sleeve for quite a few years. With this in mind, NOTHING was more gratifying than witnessing the Celtics pound, pummel, and humiliate the fancy nancys from L.A. on the biggest of stages.  This site backs the Bulls […]

The Ten Most Badass Nicknames in Sports History : #4-1

Dear Readers, Here at 4HT, we take great pride in our bottom-feeding status, but even more in our impeccable integrity, which has recently been compromised.  It has been brought to my attention that our writer, Steelhead, promised to reveal the top 4 of a running list of “badass sports nicknames” yesterday, and did not come through.  I confronted SH on the issue, and, […]

The 10 Most Badass Nicknames in Sports History : #10 to 5

Some athletes, due to a competetive spirit, tenacious attitude, or general ability to kick the shit out of everyone, earn a nickname that sends shivers down opposing players spines.  This list commemorates some of sports biggest ass-kickers and the names that made them famous.
