Mayweather And Pacquaio Meet For The First Time

It seems incredible that for all their ducking and dodging and posturing and close calls, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao had never met face-to-face before last night. But with both sitting courtside at the Miami Heat game—directly opposite each other, as it worked out—the two wandered over at halftime for a brief… » 1/28/15 9:09am 50 minutes ago

Charlie Coyle Stuns Edmonton With Breakaway, Soft-Handed Goal

The body control from Charlie Coyle is my favorite part of his game-winning goal in the third period against the Oilers. His entire body is beginning to whip around the net like he's going to attempt a wraparound, but he somehow manages to tap the puck backwards and then throw his stick out to knock it into the net.… » 1/28/15 1:05am Today 1:05am

What The Hell Did Stephen Curry Just Do With This Pass?

The headline isn't an attempt at hyperbole but a legitimate question. I've watched this on replay four or five times now and I still can't figure out how Steph Curry smoothly pulled this off.

Face protection in those conditions seems prudent, but who am I to tell… » 1/27/15 11:33pm Yesterday 11:33pm

This Goalkeeper's Free Kick Positioning Is ... Interesting

The routine for free kicks just outside the box is well-established. The defending team sets up a wall of five or six, and the free kick taker tries to smash the ball up-and-over/around/under the wall. If the goalie is lucky he has about half of a second to see where the ball is going. » 1/27/15 10:04pm Yesterday 10:04pm

Iker Casillas Hopes To Become Overpaid By MLS One Day

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas has had a rough go of it these past few years.

Why Those Statistics About The Patriots' Fumbles Are Mostly Junk

51

Statistics can say whatever you want it to, drolls the dull old axiom. But that tack has always placed the onus more on the numbers than on the ones manipulating them; more correctly, you might say, Statistics can say whatever you want it to when it's used irresponsibly or haphazardly. This is especially important… » 1/27/15 3:42pm Yesterday 3:42pm
