    When a sports team wins a major championship, the wild celebrations often turn to chaos that includes lighting fires, flipping over cars, and smashing up buses.

  2. Epic animal Super Bowl prediction roundup

    Jan 31, 2014, 4:04 PM PDT

    Animals aren’t influenced by the paralysis by analysis that comes with Super Bowl week. They ignore the stats, film, logic, and simply trust their gut when making picks. After two excruciatingly long weeks of hyperbole, the experts have all officially weighed in on the Super Bowl. Sure, these animals don’t have a clue what they’re…

    Super Bowl week is officially upon us, and everyone has an opinion about what’s going to happen on Sunday. Perhaps the most irrelevant take on Super Bowl XLVIII belongs to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. On Monday, Mayor Ford showed up to a press conference wearing a Denver Broncos jersey. He’s clearly supporting the Broncos because…

    The Super Bowl is a spectacle and the sideshows can be more entertaining than the game itself. With that in mind, Bovada.lv recently released their list of Super Bowl prop bets, and they’re downright ridiculous. Fans can wager on whether or not they think the game announcers will mention “Marijuana” or if Peyton Manning will say…

    The San Francisco 49ers, as they say in Hunger Games, have the odds ever in their favor. In the most recent update from Bovada.lv, the oddsmakers still think it’s highly likely the 49ers could win the Super Bowl. The only teams with shorter odds to win it all are the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.…

  7. Field of Links: Why the Seahawks are scary and possibly evil, Thrifty A’s willing to pay

    Dec 3, 2013, 9:32 AM PDT

    The Seattle Seahawks 12th Man set yet another Guinness World Record for crowd noise and actually created an earthquake in the process. All the team’s players did was throttle the New Orleans Saints 34-7. The Saints offense even had custom earplugs made for the game. They got the idea after Brett Favre used the same ambient…

  8. Why the 49ers are thankful

    The San Francisco 49ers have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.

More importantly, they have jobs in an ultra-competitive professional sport, financial stability, a…

    The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos were the trendy picks to meet in the Super Bowl prior to the start of the season. With Week 12 mostly in the books, let’s just say only one of those two teams is still considered a heavy favorite to get there. According to the most recent update from the oddsmakers…

  10. The story behind this unreal Kaepernick tribute haircut

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:21 PM PDT

    It’s art. Only the canvas is your head, and you grow the paint yourself. Tattoos of your favorite team and sports figures can be the ultimate show of support. But jerseys, numbers, and players change. Instead of doing something permanent, why not get something just as showy and detailed for the big game that can…

  11. Field of Links: 49ers snap judgements, Giants given something to play for, A’s are the hunted

    Aug 9, 2013, 9:35 AM PDT

    It’s easy to jump to conclusions after one preseason game — but you probably shouldn’t. Bruce Bochy wisely gave the Giants something to play for. The A’s have gone from hunter to hunted. All that and the greatest collection of links, GIFs, images, and videos of the day.
