If you were a fan of Spike TV and watched a lot in the early 2000s, then you may remember a sport called SlamBall. Mason Gordon created this awesome sport. It combines aerial acrobatics of basketball with the aggressiveness of football, and players are aided by several trampolines right underneath each basket. It may be forgotten in America, but China has fallen in love with it.
The combination off all of this going on was awesome to watch, but disputes over broadcasting led to this sport disappearing from the airwaves. Without media exposing it anymore, the sport eventually faded from people's minds. Thankfully, the owner didn't give up on it. Even if it is not being televised anymore, China and basketball have a great relationship together. So Gordon decided to air old SlamBall episodes and see what people think. This was a HUGE success and now even colleges are forming teams for the future.

Manny Pacquiao is enduring much more than any normal pounding in a boxing ring as he faces a series of legal and personal problems including: a pending investigation from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, fan lawsuits, his rival bashing him publicly and a shoulder surgery. However the Christian Filipino fighter declares he will not falter in his faith.
Pacquiao, the 36-year-old boxer and politician, lost in a unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr., 38, on May 2, and his team later revealed that he had been suffering from a shoulder injury that was aggravated early in the fight. Pacquiao underwent surgery to repair his torn rotator cuff last Wednesday, but a number of people were more concerned with filing lawsuits in the hope of a payout from the pugilist who they accused of committing fraud.
The fighter checked "no" to inquiries about an injury on a pre-fight questionnaire, which some pay-per-view and ticket buyers believe Pacquiao purposely did in an attempt to make millions in a fixed fight he was in no physical shape to win. more >>
