2013: The Year In TV News Bloopers

We spent a few months this year tracking local news blunders until the sheer volume of them forced us to abandon the project. Thankfully, a YouTube user has been collecting awkward events and put together this wonderful montage of the year's stupidest moments in TV news. » 12/26/13 11:16am 12/26/13 11:16am

Watch This Meteorologist Hiccup His Way Through A Live Report

David Paul (hiccup!) is the chief meteorologist (hiccup!) at Houston's KHOU (hiccup!). He had a lot of detail (hiccup!) to cover during yesterday's (hiccup!) 5 p.m. broadcast (hiccup!). He nonetheless (hiccup!) managed (hiccup!) to tell his viewers (hiccup!) just what they needed to know (hiccup!) about the region's… » 4/30/13 5:13pm 4/30/13 5:13pm

The Story Of "Wrong Way" Willie And The Buzzer-Beater That Lost A Game

It was March 3, 1978, the sectional semifinals of the Indiana high school basketball tournament, in the teeth of what they call Hoosier Hysteria. George Washington was playing Northwest, a team it had already beaten twice that season. Washington was up, 61-60, and had the ball. A second remained. David Donald, a senior … » 4/05/13 2:18pm 4/05/13 2:18pm

A Soldier's Blown Trampoline Dunk Delayed The Magic Game For 13 Minutes

It is becoming clear that this administration's military spending cuts are having disastrous effects on the readiness of the men and women who keep our country safe. There is no greater illustration than trampoline dunking being excised completely from basic training—leading to international incidents like this one,… » 11/05/12 5:20pm 11/05/12 5:20pm

Soccer Player Gets One-On-One With Keeper, Stubs Toe On Turf, Falls…

There's a reason this Udinese-Braga match is a Champions League qualifier, and not the Champions League. Udinese defender Pablo Armero, after scoring earlier, found himself all alone with a chance to clinch things. He would not, as you see, and Braga would score the equalizer and win on PKs thanks to a failed Panenka. … » 8/28/12 5:35pm 8/28/12 5:35pm

Mayor Of Boston Credits "KJ" And "Hondo" For Team's Heart, Success

Mayor Thomas Menino has presided over Boston, city of champions, since 1993. He knows his sports. For instance, he once talked about the time "Varitek split the uprights." Now he's talking about "KJ" and "Hondo," the two Celtics with a lot of heart. He probably means to discuss Kevin "KG" Garnett and Rajon Rondo, but maybe… » 6/07/12 12:55pm 6/07/12 12:55pm

The Ninth Inning Of Today's Mets-Giants Game Was About The Worst Ever

The Mets tried valiantly to lose today's matinee against the Giants, only to have their LOLMets returned twofold. An outfield blunder by Ruben Tejada and Kirk Nieuwenhuis on what should have been the final play of the game in the top of the ninth allowed San Francisco to tie the game, but the Giants (thanks to having… » 4/21/12 5:11pm 4/21/12 5:11pm

Mark Reynolds Is The Worst Third Baseman In Baseball

Yes, even worse than Miguel Cabrera. Last night's Orioles-Yankees game only went to extra innings because Reynolds booted a grounder in the sixth inning that led to a pair of Yankee runs. In the top of the 12th, with the go-ahead runner on third and one out, Reynolds gave perfunctory chase to a foul ball that he… » 4/11/12 11:00am 4/11/12 11:00am

Dumb Shining Moment: Your 2012 NCAA Tournament Lowlight Reel

While the NCAA tournament isn't yet finished—the Final Four starts Saturday, after all—the 64 games played thus far have been short on the drama (one overtime game, zero buzzer-beaters) but long on the blunders. While a good number of these mistakes can be blamed on the officials, players (and fans) have accounted for … » 3/29/12 4:30pm 3/29/12 4:30pm

Miguel Cabrera Bleeds All Over The Infield After Taking Grounder To…

Cabrera, by necessity the Tigers' new third baseman, got a rude welcome to the hot corner in today's spring training game in Clearwater. A Hunter Pence grounder took a bad hop and caught Cabrera directly in the sunglasses, which cut open his cheek and ruined a perfectly good uniform with human blood. He left the game… » 3/19/12 2:03pm 3/19/12 2:03pm

JaVale McGee Volleyball-Served A Goaltend Into The Fifth Row

JaVale McGee watched Top Gun today, and the pulse-pounding rock of Kenny Loggins inspired him to come out and perform in tonight's Kings-Wizards matchup. Unfortunately, that meant this ridiculous goaltending call that had him smacking the ball into the crowd like he had beef with Iceman. Play-in with the BOYS! [CSN] » 2/22/12 9:14pm 2/22/12 9:14pm

Martell Webster Just Made The Most Boneheaded Play Of The NBA Season

Down three in overtime to Denver with 4.9 seconds left, Minnesota's Martell Webster answered Timberwolves fans' prayers and intercepted a Nuggets inbound pass—only to leave them cursing his name after driving to the hoop instead of attempting a three to force double-OT. The National Post's Bruce Arthur said it best: » 2/21/12 12:06am 2/21/12 12:06am
