Scott Dixon Fighting To The IndyCar Finish
Scott Dixon is doing it again. With just five races left in the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season, the driver they call "The Iceman" is calmly working his way through the competition, remaining a firm third in the standings seemingly without breaking a sweat.

Almost three months after our feature chat, we caught up with Scott just prior to last weekend's IndyCar race at Fontana to check back in on his season and discuss a few of the subjects circulating around the league.

"I think towards the end of the season, the only thing that really changes is that you kind of look at the points a l...

14 Reasons Why Travis Barker Is A Lucky Man

UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste's Sexy Instagram Photos Will Make
Things that make you go, Mama Mia!

UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste is quite the talk as of late. For one, she's dating Blink-182's Travis Barker. The other is she is one hot, sexy, bodacious -- and a bag of chips -- woman. What's more, her Instagram photos can back up the claim.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship ring beauty is not just some knockoff babe that floats around in the ring carrying a number. Not only is she dripping with sensuality and charm; Arianny is a woman making waves -- and the folks at UFC are lucky to have her one of the faces of the franchise. She also has friends wit...

June 19th, 2015 5:39pm EDT
Draymond Green On Blue Carpet
Several sources are reporting that Golden State Warriors player, Draymond Green, appeared drunk at Friday's 2015 Championship Parade in Oakland, California.

While Starpulse cannot independently confirm the basketball sensation’s state of sobriety, several outlets are doing the honors with a number of theories.

SB Nation wrote: "Draymond Green isn't even close to sober at Warriors championship parade." The Detroit Free Press took a subtle approach and stopped short of calling the Spartans standout "drunk." The site said Green "really enjoyed himself..."

"We don't know if he's dr...

Check Out That Banner Over Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods Cheater Banner: Golfer Has 'Worst Day Ever,' Greeted
Tiger Woods was greeted with a "cheater banner" during the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday.

According to Us Weekly, Woods was geared up to play in the 115th annual tournament, but things didn't really work out well for him. Not only did he play a terrible game, but an airplane overhead was towing a banner behind it that read "cheater" -- a clear dig at the previously unfaithful golfer.

While most people thought the banner was just par for the course (get it?), Woods couldn't do much to keep his golf game in check, and that likely had nothing to do with the aerial taunt.

Cavs' LeBron James Flashes Royal Jewels: King James Suffers Ward
Did LeBron James flash his royal jewels on live TV in Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors Thursday night? If you were among the lucky few to screenshot or Vine the wardrobe malfunction of the century, then yes – Cleveland Cavaliers’ King James accidentally flashed his private parts.

Television viewers, NBA fans at Oracle Arena and a handful off photographers who captured the NSFW-esque moment, were – depending on how you look at it – mesmerized, grossed out or left fanning away perspiration at LeBron’s hasty flash, citing an SB Nation report.

James’ millisecond flicker of his unmenti...

Costas: ESPN Exploiting Caitlyn Jenner With Arthur Ashe Award

Bob Costas
Bob Costas has called ESPN's decision to give Caitlyn Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award a blatant PR move.

The NBC Sports anchor called in to The Dan Patrick Show on Monday and voiced his opinion that there are other athletes who are more deserving of the award than Jenner, who is now closer associated with the reality TV world than sports, the latter of which he hasn't been associated with for decades.

"It strikes me that awarding the Arthur Ashe Award to Caitlyn Jenner is just a crass exploitation play – it's a tabloid play," Costas said. "In the broad world of sports, I'm pretty sur...

Hope Solo
The United States Women's Soccer team kicks into action on Monday as World Cup action begins, and all eyes are on star goalie and former Dancing With The Stars contestant Hope Solo.

Prosecutors are now seeking a rare appeal in the case, which was originally dismissed on procedural grounds, and have until July 13 to file arguments in the case, according to ESPN.

"(Solo) repeatedly hurled insults at the officers processing her arrest, ...

Dave Pasant Takes Us Inside The 2015 TGPLB Pro/Celebrity Race
Alfonso Ribeiro might have driven away with this year's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race, but don't overlook Dave Pasant, who won the Celebrity category in his sixth attempt at the charity battle at 'The Beach.'

Finally climbing onto the podium after all these years is one accomplishment, but more importantly than that, Dave is a memorable figure in both Pro/Celebrity Race and overall Grand Prix of Long Beach history. With those half-dozen trips around the track, he's donated an estimated half million dollars to Racing For Kids, assisting children's hospitals. He's also o...
