There have been reports Mark Wahlberg has stated he wants to turn "The Fighter" into a trilogy. Is this the next Rocky franchise? Most likely not, since this one's based on actual events, but one wonders if Mickey Ward's story warrants three feature length films? Prior to The Fighter's release, his name rang few bells, but judging by its critical and box office success, one has to take a look around at other sports figures to see who's ripe for the Hollywood treatment. In April 2009, Bleacher Report published their list of athletes who deserve celluloid dedications, now we have our list. See our selections after the jump!

Whether you're a Yankee fan or not you have to admit Nick Swisher is the man. His energy, charisma, philanthropy and love of the game are just what the Doctor Gooden ordered for baseball. However, those traits aren't just confined to the field and personal appearances, they carry over to world of Twitter and Facebook as well. Recently, NBC called him a "social media superstar" and if you've been following Swish on those platforms, you know the dude's always got something interesting to say or show. Read more about Swish and see his best twitpics after the jump!
Back in December, we asked you, Joe G. User, who the worst sportsman of the year was. After a solid two months of voting, we have the answer. I'm kind of surprised at the results. I mean, not even close. Full results from the poll are after the jump along with a bunch of pics of our Worst Sportsman at his worst. Enjoy!
Drew Brees was recently awarded Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Brees not only won a Super Bowl against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts last February, but has made significant contributions off the field as well. Of course you tend to not hear about it since our sports news off the field typically focurs on DUIs or domestic abuse, a player’s displeasure with their current team, or better yet, where they are taking their “talents.” Brees is a breath of fresh air and we 100% fully endorse SI's selection. To ensure we have MORE of him and LESS of the other jackasses, we're doling out "awards" for the Worst Sportsmen of the Year.
The Texas Rangers are on the brink of elimination as they head into Game 5 of the 2010 World Series tonight. While watching the games up to this point, there are certain characteristics and idiosyncrasies we picked up from each team's respective hometown. If you're not a Rangers or Giants fan, who do you route for? More importantly, if you had the choice to be in the winner's city after clinching their World Series Championship, which would you choose? Dallas or San Fran? COED gives you the lowdown on which city is better.
I was watching ESPN Goal Line when they showed a highlight of the Army interception and lateral for a touchdown. Being hungover, I didn't fully realize they had camo uni's until they cut to a close up. Personally, I think they're awesome. More teams need to do this. I'm looking at you, Cincinnati Bengals.
If there's one thing we love most about every sport, it's cheerleaders. And believe it or not, baseball actually has cheerleaders! Don't believe us? Well, just take a gander at these smokin' hot gals, and you'll have a whole new reason for singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game". And speaking of smokin', did you watch our video of World Series star Tim Lincecum talking about his Marijuana usage?
A couple weeks ago, we brought you the hottest WAGs of the League Championship Series. Now that the teams for the World Series are confirmed, we revisit the trophy wives, road beef, better halves, and mistresses of the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants. We honestly have no idea how these guys can think about baseball with this eye candy trick or treating all over the place. And, if we're Ian Kinsler, we're wifing up Amber Leigh Hartman like yesterday.
COED readers vehemently boycotted Campus Socialite's DOTW, Josh Hamilton. He didn't register ONE SINGLE VOTE! Last week's winner, The Sitch, beat out a woman who makes fun of a dying 7 year old girl. We're in the final homestretch, folks. 3 weeks down. 2 to go. Speaking of 2's, we only have 2 dooshers doing battle this round.
The Texas Rangers are poised to win their first AL pennant ever with a win over the New York Yankees tonight. Some have att…
When it comes to sports sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Just ask Phil Jackson. While he’s been one of the luckier sports figures, there are some who have no choice but to raise their arms to the sport gods and scream, “why me?!?” Who are some of the unluckier sports names past and present?
She originally caught our eye during Saturday's ALCS game between the Rangers and Yankees. We apparently caught HER eye because she messaged us on Twitter stating she was a "good luck charm." Seeing as the Rangers are up 2-1, we're not arguing. Since then we posted a gallery of pics from her Facebook profile, which caused Sports Illustrated to stand up and take notice. Before she gets "too famous" for us, we thought we'd get to know the 23 year old die-hard Rangers and Cowboys fan a little more.
We posted a still frame of a group of hot girls sitting behind home plate at Saturday's ALCS game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. One of the girls, Amber Leigh Hartman, saw our post and quickly identified herself as one of the smokeshows. So, it's only appropriate we feature her in all her beautiful blonde glory.
If you watch ESPN round the clock like I do, you'll know that walk off hit happen more frequently than a Lindsay Lohan probation violation. There's at least 5-6 a night and they all end with a mosh-pit at home plate (unless you're the Anaheim Angels) that screams "act like you've been there before." But all bets are off in the playoff's. You're one out away from a fall full of golf. So...playoff walkoff's....here's eleven good ones.
The League Championship Series begins Friday so COED decided to profile the hottest wives and girlfriends (WAGs). Face it, most players put on the cleats for the cleat chasers. Hot girls are drawn to professional athletes like Snooki is to a pickle. These women are proof it's good to be a Yankee, Phillie, Ranger, or Giant.
These select individuals excel on the baseball diamond but their successes circling the bases with the ladies don't match up. We have a feeling the following players are far from players that crush a lot. Now entering the game, Ashley Dupre.
If you've ever watched a baseball game on TV or visited 30 stadiums in 30 days, chances are you've seen him. The batter with the bizarro batting stance, where it looks like he's trying to get back to the locker room to drop a deuce. Perhaps he's wanting to coerce the pitcher into a brawl or is so anxious for his next "hit" that he can't stand still.
Tonight, Major League Baseball’s biggest hitters will come out for the over-hyped, glorified batting practice we all know and love: The Home Run Derby, 2010. So to add some extra juice to the bat-bash, enjoy the quintessential Derby drinking game. This thing will leave you so sloshed, you’ll start stumbling around like the Mets.
This summer, two COED Magazine editors, Steve Gebhardt and John Tramutolo, will set out on a life-changing journey across America that will test their blogging skills, their baseball knowledge, and their ability to not get lost. From Fenway Park to Safeco Field, our batboys of Summer 2010 will answer the toughest questions out there. Who has the best hot dogs? The loudest bleacher bums? The best tailgating spots? And most importantly, the hottest ball girls? Keep up with all the nonstop action and keep up to date with the exclusive content by following Steve and John via Facebook, Twitter, and COED's 30 in 30 section.
The whole world loves a good soccer match. Whether you are a fan of the game who appreciates the constant back-and-forth action or someone who enjoys the wacky antics of the crazy fans, there are few people in the world who could resist getting caught up in the excitement. With the FIFA World Cup coming up, the soccer world is ramping up for one of the most anticipated athletic competitions in the world. While many of you are likely sports fans, I would be willing to bet there are a few things that many of you do not know…
Professional baseball players somehow manage to carry some of the most fragile, inflated egos in the sports world. Steroid users not only hold some of baseball's most prestigious and famous records, but they have the nerve to lie about it afterward, as if not wanting to get caught by Mom with their hand in the cookie jar. Swelling heads, shrinking junk, home runs, and RBIs all come together in this testosterone filled mess of a situation.
Oh, October. A sweet, sweet month highlighted by the NFL and NCAAFB seasons in full swing, the NBA and NHL seasons getting underway and, of course, the MLB playoffs. The crux of the American sports universe lives here and it's a wonderful thing. The race to the Fall Classic begins today and what else for a quasi-journalist to do other than make predictions that are bound to be wrong...
Injuries can absolutely destroy a great baseball team, just take the 2009 New York Mets for example. Injuries have decimated their $145 million roster sending the majority of their starting roster to the DL, but at least none of the Amazin's are out with injuries like these. Baseball players have suffered some pretty strange injuries off the field so we've gone ahead and complied 10 of the best.
With the MLB season entering the stretch, division leaders like the Yankees, the Phillies, the Angels, and the Cardinals need to avoid the mistakes that these five teams made that cost them their season. So, you know, if you are a player in any of these teams, read and learn! Otherwise, just laugh at the past dumbass collapses.
In this day and age of just about every adequate baseball player in the world being outed as horrible, sinful steroid users, you can’t go to a game without wondering if the player you’re rooting for is enhancing his performance with something. Luckily, there’s a whole slew of ballplayers who leave no doubt as to whether or not they’ve ever taken steroids; odds are they never lifted a weight in their lives either.
With Monday's Home Run Derby and Tuesday's All Star game kicking off the week, the baseball season is ramping up for its end of the summer push. And if there's one thing we love most about every sport, it's cheerleaders. And believe it or not, baseball actually has cheerleaders! Don't believe us? Well, take a gander at these smokin' hot gals, and you'll have a whole new reason for singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game".
Tonight, Major League Baseball's biggest hitters will come out for the overhyped, glorified batting practice we all know and love: The Home Run Derby, 2009. So to add some extra juice to the bat-bash, the good folks at HomRunDerby.com have put together the quintessential Derby drinking game. This thing will leave you so sloshed, you'll start stumbling around like the Mets.
Earlier in the week, COED took a look at the "Top Five Future Superstar Hitters Of The MLB," and now it is time to preview the future of the sport on the mound. With Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine sipping on some tea, kicking back and counting retirement money, we'll take a look at the top five starting pitchers that are 25-years-old or younger who are sure to be the next generation of staff aces.
