Gentlemen, start your engines! It’s time for the 10 Best Racing Games list. This list was actually pretty hard to make. There are going to be fans that are angry at us for not including titles like Gran Turismo, F1- Grand Prix, and Super Off Road, but we had to look at the bigger picture. Racing isn’t just simulation racing or sports racing. It’s any sort of game where your goal is to get to the finish line before your opponent. Thus we had to consider kart racers, gravity racers, and all those weird racing offshoots that cared more about car crashes than clean finishes. Drift into our list of the 10 Best Racing Games of all time.

Back in July, Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he’d never heard of former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. In August, Silva said that he didn’t respect Mayweather, calling him “Papa Smurf.” So, in a development that totally makes sense and doesn’t seem passive-aggressive at all, MMA expert Floyd Mayweather Jr. is now looking to promote MMA fighters. Yyyep. From an interview with Fight Hype: I want to promote MMA fighters also. We lookin to promote MMA fighters, so it’s the first time you’re hearing it on FightHype. You know, Al Haymon is looking to manage MMA fighters. Even though Al Haymon hasn’t came on record and said it, but I want Al to manage MMA fighters. I think I can take it to the next level. You know, I don’t mind doing business with Dana White. Dana White’s a cool guy. I’ve been knowing Dana before he got involved with the MMA. (via FightHype) Frankly, I’ve love to see Mayweather himself show up in MMA and destroy everybody without changing his fighting strategy like Balrog from ‘Street Fighter II,’ boxing gloves and everything. That’d be pretty amazing. Guy tries to shoot a double leg takedown and Money just super-speed dodges to the left and KOs him. He’s already improving the lives of MMA fighters, after all.

Jon Bones Jones is set to defend the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship against Alexander Gustafsson at Saturday’s aptly-named UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson in Toronto. To prepare, he’s visiting Canadian sporting events and beating up whoever he finds there. At Rogers Centre it was Toronto Blue Jays mascot Ace, and also maybe Alex Rodriguez. Jones threw out the first pitch at at Thursday night’s Blue Jays vs. Yankees game, and while it lacks the wacky fail of Carly Rae Jepsen’s effort, the passion of that one 2-year old who refused to throw from the grass or the weird accuracy of Holly Sonders chipping it in with a golf club, it’s worth watching and possibly scoffing at. Plus, it’s another in a line of great examples of how “being a good athlete” doesn’t translate to “being able to throw a ball.” It’s not super horrible, though. Check it out:

As the Kings continue their image makeover that was sparked by the late May sale of the team to Vivek Ranadive, they have made a big and bold move by adding O’Neal as a minority owner. The TNT analyst once gleaned pleasure in deriding the Kings, whom he owned in a very different way when his Lakers thrice knocked their rival out of the playoffs en route to titles in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Now his joy will come from seeing one of the league’s worst-performing franchises turn things around. His involvement will begin in earnest today, as O’Neal — who jokingly referred to himself as “Dr. O’Neal” throughout a phone interview with USA TODAY Sports — plans to meet with Kings players and coaches in Sacramento before having dinner with franchise centerpiece and new protégé DeMarcus Cousins.

Ariel Helwani had a bevy of big name guests on The MMA Hour Monday, as Uriah Faber, Chael Sonnen, Dan Hardy, Chris Weidman, Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva and Conor McGregor stopped by to fill us all in on what they’re up to and much more importantly what they thought of the main event at UFC 165. But the big guest for the show was WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who broke into the podcast business earlier in the year and is quite the casual MMA and UFC fan. For starters, Austin said that while he’s certainly no MMA scoring expert, he had Alexander Gustafsson winning Saturday night’s fight 3-2, but he agreed with pretty much all of us that a unanimous decision was laughable. Regardless, he thinks that Gustafsson became a superstar in his loss to Jon Jones, and he also agrees with a lot of us that some fighters are really lacking in the personality department. But the biggest tidbit to take away from Austin’s interview involved the recently retired and equally legendary Jim Ross, as Helwani asked him if he thinks Ol’ J.R. would be a great addition to the UFC. “I do, just because the guy has 30 or 40 years of experience with storylines, angles, knowledge, booking and how things worked in our world. Yes, I think he can help in some capacity, some way and somehow. But I have to turn that question on you – do you think he can help?” Stone Cold has already mastered his role as a podcast host, always knowing how to get the best of a conversation by flipping the question on someone. Anyway, the snap judgment fan answer to this question is YES. YES PLEASE. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES. That’s because J.R. is just an awesome commentator and not having him on a broadcast is a crime. However, Helwani’s response to Austin was the much more logical answer, in that actually having him on air calling fights would probably be a big mistake because of how closely associated he is with professional wrestling. After all, when so many people are screaming fake and accusing the UFC of rigging fights, you don’t want to encourage them by hiring a WWE guy to sit in the booth with Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. Even though it would be so awesome to hear him shout, “OH MAH GAWD, THAT’S JON JONES’ MUSIC!” And in case you’re wondering if Austin is itching to get back in the ring for the WWE anytime soon, you can stop. “I know a lot of fans want to see that. But what if it’s not what it could have been or should have been? I don’t want to go out there and do 90% of ‘Stone Cold,’ that’s not who and what I am… I was there, I did it at a high level, I had a great time. I took the business to a height that it’s never been before. Hopefully someday someone will come on now that I’m done and take it to an even higher level. John Cena has done a wonderful job doing what he’s done. Man, I’d say the chances are pretty damn slim, to be frank about it.” If anything, I think it’s Austin who should have a role with the UFC, teaching young fighters how to record a promo.

In the mid-90s, Martina Hingis was my dream girl. She was great at tennis, becoming the youngest Grand Slam champion of all time at age 15. She was my age, too, and her tennis outfits always either did one fantastic thing or another. She’s as responsible for my march through puberty and love of fringe sports as anyone in the world. That said, some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. Hingis, now 32, is making difficult-to-translate news by teaming up with her mother to attack her husband and bash him over the head with a DVD player. Oh, cool. The translation effort, courtesy of our friends at Guyism: “On Monday evening, I was in our shared apartment when the doorbell rang. In the course of a dispute to Martina and her mother Melanie Molitor pounced on me, beat me and scratched. My upbringing forbids me to beat women. I resisted every effort, as suggested to me Mario Widmer, the partner of Melanie, the DVD player to the head. ” But that’s not enough. When [husband Thibault] Hutin neck plunges over head out of the house, he finds that his passport and his credit cards are gone. Straightway he went to the police in Pfäffikon. “The policemen went with me back to the apartment and forced the three to surrender my valuables.” (via Guyism) Wait, she stole his shit, too? Am I reading that correctly? Also, is “Pfäffikon” a place, or were they at a Dutch police convention? According to reports, Martina had been a pretty crummy wife before this incident, cheating on her husband multiple times. All I can say is that I’m glad the guy had a DVD player and wasn’t trying to watch blu-rays on one of those old, backwards-compatible PS3s, because Jesus, that would’ve crushed his skull.

Like most of us, even UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones thought his title match with Alexander Gustaffson at UFC 165 last Saturday was so close that the only logical thing to do is plan an immediate rematch and give us another fight for the ages. But as he has been recovering from the incredible beating that Gustaffson gave him in a losing effort, Jones has had a chance to watch the fight a few more times and score it for himself. His result? Definitely 3-2, maybe even 4-1 in his favor. According to Ariel Helwani, that is apparently enough for Jones to overlook Gustafsson for a rematch and take on the next contender instead, and that would be Glover Teixeira, winner of five straight since making his UFC debut and 20 in a row since his last loss in 2005. “Bones” told FOX Sports 1′s “UFC Tonight” on Wednesday that he initially thought the most fair thing to do was grant Gustafsson an immediate rematch because the fight was so close, however, after watching the fight over ten times since Saturday night, he now believes that he decisively won rounds two, four and five. As a result, the champion now thinks “the most fair thing to do is grant the next deserving contender” a shot at the title, he said. (Via MMA Fighting) And UFC President Dana White confirmed yesterday that the fight is probably going to happen. “That’s what the champ wants,” White said. “We’ll probably have that fight on the Super Bowl card in New Jersey.” I have enough respect for Jones – which is tons and tons of respect, mind you – that I wouldn’t ever think that he was dodging Gustafsson or making excuses for why he almost lost to him (and did lose to him in a lot of people’s eyes). I also appreciate that he might want to give another contender a shot, especially if it’s Teixeira, who has been so much fun to watch fight and would probably be an even tougher challenge for Jones. But this has “dick move” written all over it. Teixeira could defeat Jones, which would warrant an immediate rematch and even end up leading to a third fight if the first two are good enough, and that would leave Gustafsson, the No. 1 contender, waiting almost two years for another title shot. Obviously, that’s the worst case scenario for the Swede, but the best case would still be at least another year.

Earlier this week, former UFC champion and current Bellator fighter Tito Ortiz Tweeted to Ken Shamrock, Frank Shamrock, Randy Couture and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson that they should all crash the upcoming UFC 20th anniversary show, or UFC 167, taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on November 16. Frank and Randy both responded that they should do it, although I’m thinking the latter was far less serious than the former or even Ortiz, since he’s just trying to drum up some publicity for his fight at the debut Bellator PPV on Nov. 2. Since that Tweet, UFC President Dana White, who does not care for any of these men whatsoever, has addressed both the idea of the “super friends” invading UFC 167 and why it’s so funny that Ken Shamrock suddenly wants to have a confrontation with White and the UFC. Warning: These videos are not safe for little ears.

With the New York Yankees now eliminated from playoff contention for just the second time in the last 18 or so years, the sports media can finally focus on what really matters – how much money they’ll spend in the offseason. And if there’s time, we can possibly discuss the other losers that are still competing for a World Series title. But for now, the most important story in baseball is Robinson Cano and how much money he thinks he’s worth as a free agent. That number? $305 million over 10 years. Now, some people may argue that this is hilariously impossible, as most teams are looking to follow the new blueprint of spending less to develop farm talent, as opposed to handing out horrible contracts like the decade deal that was just given to Albert Pujols. But Cano is a lifetime .309 hitter who has never hit more than 33 home runs and has only 3 seasons with 100+ RBI, so I’m sure that a team is willing to give him $30 million per year. Wait, no. He’s sure. Because the only thing I’m sure about is that he’s insane.

Texas A&M football punter Drew Kaser’s Twitter bio currently features the hashtags #1shot1kill and #shakeandbake, so if somebody came up to you and said “what do you think Texas A&M punter Drew Kaser is doing this weekend,” you could probably piece it together. It would involve red Solo cups, hunting rifles and not updating your favorite movie quotes in 10 years. Regardless, a local newspaper asked Drew what his plans were for the Aggies’ first away game weekend, and his response was suitably #shakeandbake: he plans to drop bombs.

The New York Yankees may not have made the playoffs, but they did wind up with one of the biggest stories of the year in the farewell tour of their longtime closer and one of Major League Baseball’s true gentleman superstars, Mariano Rivera. It all came to a head last night with the Tampa Bay Rays, still in the thick of the American League’s Wild Card race, defeating the Yankees, but nobody cares about the score, because it was Rivera’s last pitching appearance in Yankee Stadium. Presumably ever, unless Joe Girardi pulls off the miracle of all miracles and figures out a way to help Mo return all of the gifts he received from other teams. All obvious hero worship aside, I’m really waiting for a national columnist to step forward with the “Mariano Rivera wasn’t as good as everyone is pretending” troll piece

When all is said and done on December 31 and 2013 comes to a close, boxing champion, phenom and legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. will have made more than $100 million on his fights alone. Oh, and that’s for two fights. Mayweather made $45 million per fight for his May 4 victory over Robert Guerrero and his fight against Canelo Alvarez earlier this month, also a win. And word on the streets is that Mayweather hasn’t even received his back end cash for that second fight, so he could be looking at a cool 9 figures for two nights of work. Then there’s also his gambling winnings, as the man with more money than most small countries has a penchant for sports wagers, and he also loves to brag about his winnings to us lowly poor bastards. Take today, for example, as Mayweather Tweeted a picture of his early winnings as he waits to see how much additional money he’ll make off of Johnny Manziel.

As head coach of the USC Trojans football program, Lane Kiffin compiled a 28-15 record over the last three seasons and through the first five games of this season, and that’s not very good when you’re reportedly recruiting the nation’s best classes each year. In those three years, only one season yielded a conference division title. Not a conference title, just a conference division. And if all of that wasn’t unimpressive enough, Kiffin’s only bowl appearance with the Trojans was a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in the 2012 Sun Bowl. But breaking down Kiffin’s coaching record at any level is low-hanging fruit, and the only news that matters today is that after the Trojans were humiliated in a 62-41 loss to Arizona State last night, Kiffin was fired this morning by USC athletic director Pat Haden. Start praying, Jacksonville Jaguars fans. Haden said in a statement that USC would hold a press conference at an unknown time later today, but the Los Angeles Times reported that this firing is over so much more than just one horrible, awful, ridiculous loss. The timing also has recruiting ramifications because some top prospects in Southern California reportedly voiced concern about Kiffin’s status. Haden’s action comes eight months after Kiffin’s father, Monte, resigned as defensive coordinator, and three months after Lane Kiffin announced that he would not give up play-calling duties. Kiffin has long been touted for his ability to recruit the nation’s top prospects, but any accolades or praise that he has earned for his actual coaching abilities has either been incredibly misguided and unwarranted or merely the result of his father’s success in the NFL for so many years. While it is unknown who will replace Kiffin at USC for the long haul, we can be sure that Kiffin won’t be unemployed for too long, as his so-called “high football IQ” will almost always convince an NFL GM with no football IQ that he’s worthy of a huge paycheck and an endless supply of second chances.

’d argue that few things in the modern world are more hated than the perpetually emoting panda bear we call Drake and ESPN’s Sportscenter, which has sadly become something less about highlights and sports news and some more about “debate” and corporate “synergy,” or something. That said, Drake has a new album out today, as you may have heard, (along with a new video) and he appeared on Sportscenter this morning to promote it, which when you really stop and think about it is just perfect. What did Drake talk about and do on Sportscenter, you ask? Here’s a rundown… 1. How he and Johnny Football are BFFs. “I consider myself a positive reinforcement in his life…I think we’ll be friends for a long time,” said Drake.

The headline makes it sound like they sat down and went over a bunch of paperwork, but trust me, it involves them punching each other in the face. Recently, the NHL’s GMs and the Board of Governors created and approved a new rule that gives players a two-minute minor penalty for removing their helmet before a fight, leaving you with seven minutes in the box; five for fighting and two for unsportsmanlike conduct. They want to curb fighting in the league, and figured two hockey guys were gonna get mad at each other, skate up face to face, decide they don’t want to punch each others’ helmets and, I don’t know, shake on it? Brett Gallant of the New York Islanders and Krys Barch of the New Jersey Devils have almost instantaneously made that rule look dumb as dirt by removing one another’s helmets before throwing hands. Whoops!

The other day, my good friend (we’ll call him Ted Notarealperson) asked me, “Hey Burnsy, what’s with all the Eastbound & Down posts? Are you shilling for HBO or something?” And I said, “No” because I’m just a huge Eastbound & Down fan; however, I’d gladly shill for just about anybody if they asked (especially you, Taco Bell and/or Jeep). Tomorrow night at 10 PM ET, Kenny Powers will make his magnificent return for the fourth and final season of Eastbound & Down, and it will be awesome because this show is simply awesome. But to make his return even more glorious than it already is, Kenny Powers (or Danny McBride to some sticklers) has recorded a series of messages to the fans of baseball's biggest cities, each one more ridiculous and outstanding than the next. So I went ahead and gathered several (or 10) of my favorites and paired them with my equally favorite Kenny Powers fashion statements from the first three seasons.

Did I lure you in with the sexy, racy title? Good. Because that’s not really what happened at all. Last night, the Minnesota Lynx took a 1-0 lead over the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA Western Conference Finals, and Diana Taurasi led the way for Phoenix in the losing effort with 15 points. However, Taurasi lost her cool a little in the 4th period and shoved Seimone Augustus with her shoulder and the ref gave both women a technical foul. What he missed when T-ing them up, though, was Taurasi immediately showing that it was all in good fun by kissing her longtime rival on the cheek. But obviously, that’s not nearly as cool as suggesting that they kissed each other. The problem with all of it, though, is that the Internet is a horrible, vile place, filled with the lowest scum on the face of the planet, and you can only imagine the YouTube comments that have followed. (Or you can read some here so you don’t have to imagine.)

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is not afraid to lean into pop culture. Whether he’s teaching Uncle Jesse how to play basketball on ‘Full House,’ playing golf with Uncle Phil on ‘The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air,’ appearing on worthless, quickly-canceled sitcoms of the 2010s or simply jumping on the We Hate Lena Dunham bandwagon, Kareem will participate in your popular things and wallow. His most famous contribution to pop culture (you know, besides all the basketball) is still his turn as Roger Murdock, the airplane co-pilot who is also probably Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the legendary 1980 comedy Airplane. Randomly, Abdul-Jabbar is now returning to that role in a series of Zucker Brothers/Jim Abrahams-directed commercials for (of all things) the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. OKAY, SURE. It’s a great decision, considering that to date the best Travel Wisconsin advertisement was just a lady with a bunch of leaves on her head. We’ll be sure to share the commercials when they’re available (because everybody loves seasonal Wisconsin footage), but until then, never forget:

I'm not a fan of Triple H using his new corporate b-hole character to bury midcard faces, but I'll make an exception for The Miz. I mean, Miz seemed to be making an exerted effort tonight to prove he deserves every bit of Triple H poop that lands in his mouth, so who am I to argue? The opening segment started with Miz interrupting Triple H and cutting a "Really?" peppered "angry" promo before Triple H cut him off to drop some truths. Truths like, "We gave you a fair one-and-one match against Randy Orton two weeks ago which you lost in spectacular fashion, and Monday's Miz TV segment was going fine until you insulted my wife apropos of nothing, so shut the f--k up." Watch Miz's face go from "mildly confident by Miz standards" to "Oh, s--t, oh God, why did I raise my hand? I want to sit down." during Hunter's evisceration. It's wonderful. Then Triple H finally lets Miz get a word in edgewise, and the best comeback he can summon is "I should have changed the W to a B, LOL" and Triple H, a man who tears Paul Heyman's shirt off and slaps his tits into oblivion every time he even mentions his children, can't even be assed to get upset. The Miz -- too insignificant to anger the most angry guy in WWE history.

The description at Bob’s Blitz reads, “David Zibung, goalkeeper for Swiss Super League soccer club FC Luzern, has his face mashed by Grasshopper Club Zürich winger Izet Hajrovic.” I’m not going to pretend I understand a word of that. Well, I understand “goalkeeper” and “super” and “face.” So I’ll rephrase it to you, the similarly uneducated in the ways of soccer, as “it is super gross when this goalkeeper gets stomped in the face.” Here’s some solid advice: if you are on a field with a bunch of guys wearing spikes on the bottom of their shoes, squared-off nubs they may be, try not to let those spikes get onto/into your face. This is what happens (warning – it’s pretty bloody):

This isn’t new news at all, but like most treasures of the Internet, it’s always new to someone. That said, back in 2011, professional surfer Bruce Irons decided to add a little flair to his routine as he actually attached flares to his surfboard so he looked like he was on fire and being chased by flames while he hit the waves. Earlier this month, the video found new life on Reddit and GIFs of Irons’ flare surfing have become a new hit, as has this video of him explaining to Red Bull where the idea came from. If anything, it seems like a great way to enjoy a rush and fend off testicle-biting fish.

We share a pretty thorough amount of stuff to make you cry on this site, from sick kids in wheelchairs scoring touchdowns to army dads returning home to surprise their families to dead dog mascots who tweet from Heaven, so it’s amazing to me that a story as inspiring and touching as the one between Atlanta high schoolers Demetrius de Moors and Michael Lind could be almost a year old and not have any major mainstream coverage. Demetrius was set to compete in Georgia’s prestigious South Metro Wrestling Tournament and stepped in against Lind, a kid with Down Syndrome. I won’t spoil it for you in an asinine paragraph, but if you’ve got five free minutes, watch this video in its entirety, cry a little bit, and feel a hell of a lot better about humanity.

Hey guys, did you know that Miley Cyrus is controversial? Did you know that she's in your face and expressing herself and that you're all haters because only God can judge ya? She's the original dog from Hell! Anyway, Miley is an integral part of Mike WiLL Made It, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J's new video '23,' a song that honors NBA legend Michael Jordan's ability to have expensive shoes named after him. It's disrespectful to Jordan himself. I guess there are worst things out there right? After this you might need to rub hot peppers on your eyes. First, the video:

While Mariano Rivera was busy being serenaded by Metallica and cheered and worshiped by millions of people in New York City on Sunday, Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton was driving in four runs to help ease the sting of his team’s 13-9 loss to the San Diego Padres in a duel of two teams just padding stats. However, one Rockies fan helped ease the additional sting of another season with no playoffs hope by showing Helton a painting of him as a centaur. This makes that adorable kid who drew the picture of Starling Marte look like a real amateur. When I saw these pictures last night, I started wondering, “Why do I make fun of Alex Rodriguez for having two huge paintings of himself as a centaur in his home, but I look at this Helton painting and wish someone would make me a centaur?” Two reasons: 1) Alex Rodriguez commissioned his own paintings, which makes him an arrogant douchebag, while someone made this painting for Helton; 2) A-Rod is a massive arrogant douchebag while Helton is only a pretty big douchebag.

On Wednesday, Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne (above) nailed a spectacular free kick to help lift his club to a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in a Champions League match at Stadio San Paolo in Naples, Italy. I’m no soccer expert by any means – and I’m not sure what most of the things I mentioned in that first sentence mean – but a lot of people were really excited about it and I’ll take that as a sign that it was a big win. What’s most interesting about the goal, though, is what happened immediately after the ball made it into the net. Making his debut for Dortmund was goalkeeper Mitchell Langarek, and he posted to Instagram yesterday that the goal was embarrassing for him on two counts: 1) It cost his team the game and 2) It cost him his two front teeth.

Here’s why the main event will be fun: Because if you like Sonnen (like I do to an extent) and he wins, he’s going to turn the trash talk up to 12 now that he’s dropping back down to middleweight to chase Wanderlei Silva for that fight that they’ve never had. And he’ll turn up the trash talk beyond that, because he always talks beyond his own fights, and he’ll probably pry his way into the conversation of the Weidman-Silva II main event at UFC 168, because that’s what he’s great at and he's already doing that. And people will ask, “Why do people care what Sonnen has to say?” and we’ll respond, “Because he’s the only one with something to say. Seriously, nobody else, save for Ronda Rousey, is even remotely entertaining, and the UFC needs Sonnen yapping away.” But if you don’t like Sonnen, and I know that’s a lot of you, here’s the best reason for you to watch this main event tonight – He’s probably going to lose. And that’s why I think that the casual sports fan can really start to appreciate the UFC, because there’s nothing more entertaining and hilarious than watching a hyped team or athlete and its fans run their mouths over and over, only to lose. As for the rest of the card, check out our good friend, and smartest fight fan in all of these live discussions, Lobster Mobster’s handy dandy fight primer, and check out the cool new UFC fight card preview slides, complete with my very own predictions (for the first time ever, since I’m always afraid to look dumb) for tomorrow night’s UFC Fight Night on Fox Sports 1.
