Oscar Pistorius
One day after paralympian Oscar Pistorius was deemed not guilty of premeditated murder charges for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013, he was found guilty of culpable homicide -- South Africa's equivalent of manslaughter.

Pistorius shot model Steenkamp four times through a closed bathroom door in his home in Pretoria, South Africa, fearing that she was an intruder. Judge Thokozile Masipa ruled on Thursday that the prosecution did not provide enough evidence to prove their case that the runner intentionally shot and killed Steenkamp, but the judge did call his action...

NFL Thursday Night: Ravens and Steelers Battle Tonight Under Ray Rice/NFL Controversy

Ray Rice
It seems like the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers have the most heated battles in professional football. And the word "battle" is no understatement. Pittsburgh is no longer dominated by steel mining but they still play a smash mouth football that feels like they are swinging a steel pipe at their opponents. The Ravens are just downright scary. Ever see the Hitchock's "The Birds?" Yah, I couldn't sleep either.

The game is shadowed by the cloud of Ray Rice who was finally suspended for an indefinite period after the pathetic two game suspension that was handed down from Commissioner...

Will Power Wins First Verizon IndyCar Series Championship
Four months after he spoke with Starpulse at the Grand Prix of Long Beach, Will Power has clinched his first ever Verizon IndyCar Series championship, and the first for Team Penske in eight years.

"You've just got to always be out there, knocking on the door," said Power when we asked him in April what it would take for him to capture a title. "I think that's the only way you're going to win a championship."

Having been doing just that for several years, on Sunday night the door finally opened for the Australian-born driver. Power's ninth-place finish in Sunday's MAVTV 500 clinched him th...

'Sin City' Star Jessica Alba Throws Out First Pitch At Dodger Stadium

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba has shown off her athletic prowess in both Sin City and FOX's early 2000 TV show Dark Angel. And yesterday she demonstrated that she can not only perform with the assistance of multiple takes and stunt doubles, but on 100% live TV with no chance of the director yelling "cut."

Alba took to the top mound, after some adorable warm-up tosses with an unnamed Dodgers player, and delivered a pitch that would make even Randy Johnson proud (and 50 Cent envious).

Well, not exactly. The pitch was a little bit of a lob and would have probably hit the batter had there been one standing in...

Chrissy's Drunk First Pitch

Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy Teigen threw the ceremonial first pitch for the L.A. Dodgers last night, and if she appeared a little loopy it's because her dad got her drunk beforehand.

Teigen was celebrating her father's birthday earlier in the day when she tweeted to her fans at 7 PM, "Crap I'm pretty drunk" and "My mom is bombed." She then put on her jersey - #40 and the last name "Nugz." Dodgers reporter Michael Lananna revealed the jersey choice was "because '40 Nugz' is her favorite drunken food at McDonald's."

Crap I'm pretty drunk
