Germany’s dominance looks to continue as Jérôme Boateng hammered home a 25-yard volley to put the reigning world champions up 1-0 early on Slovakia. Maybe it’s not as flashy as Shaqiri, but impressive nonetheless.
Pat Summitt’s family is asking for prayers after reports surfaced the Hall of Fame basketball coach had moved into hospice care and was facing “serious health concerns.”
Tonight’s NASCAR truck race near St. Louis was already running late after a rain delay and several wrecks, but it was one with just seven laps remaining that brought Spencer Gallagher and John Wes Townley to fisticuffs. Rubbin’ (fists) is racin’!
Idiots On The Field usually conduct their shenanigans during breaks in the action, but this hooligan in Seattle rushed out between two Mariners outfielders attempting to haul in a fly ball in the fifth inning against the Cardinals. Reader Ethan sent some video of the Idiot getting sacked:
Are you charmed? Are you alarmed?
Mets outfielder Alejandro de Aza did nearly everything wrong tonight in the tenth inning of New York’s scoreless tie against the Braves: he botched the bunt, didn’t run it out, and then slid into first base—headfirst, even. Good job, good effort!
Yeah, so Colombia took an early lead on the U.S. in tonight’s Copa América third-place match, but that means we once again get to check in on the cybernetic-lunged “El Cantante del Gol,” Javier Fernández. Tonight’s heavy metal “¡Gol!” spanned 37 seconds of uninterrupted, uh, “¡Gol!”-ing. I can’t even hold my breath…
Thank you, as always, for supporting Deadspin. It’s been a day. We’re crossing fingers something interesting happens later.
Wales-Northern Ireland was a snoozer and Croatia-Portugal thus far has been even worse. So here’s a guy doing soccer tricks while hanging from a lightpole.
Adam Lind smacked a three-run walkoff homer Friday as the Seattle Mariners beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 4-3.
Xherdan Shaqiri may fly below the radar at times as a Stoke City midfielder, but “The Alpine Messi” performed his magic late in today’s Euro 2016 matchup against Poland as he delivered an astounding golazo that brought his Switzerland side level.
Yankees flamethrower Aroldis Chapman averaged 101.9 mph on his eleven pitches last night against the Twins—and that’s only because one of them was a changeup. How fast is 101.9 mph? Faster than cops clocked the following athletes when they were busted for speeding:
Johnny Manziel’s father Paul told ESPN tonight that the former Browns quarterback is a “druggie” who “needs help” and that he hoped his son would go to jail.
Former Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was arrested earlier today after authorities said he pointed a loaded gun at a woman he was arguing with and told her, “I’ll kill you bitch.” The arrest happened shortly after 3 a.m. this morning in Florida’s Osceola County; Jackson was booked into local jail on one count…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Enjoy the weekend.
