Before the game, fans unveiled a massive banner to commemorate Lionel Messi’s 500th Barça goal, the one he scored this weekend when he snipped the balls off of Real Madrid and then celebrated in the most badass way…
Adopted Bostonian David Ortiz, who knows a little something about improbable comebacks, watched last night’s Super Bowl miracle at home with his family, most likely going from cautiously excited to devastated to deliriously happy like all Patriots fans over the course of the evening. He gave us a glimpse of that last…

Comcast SportsNet Chicago aired lots of compelling footage last night of Cubs players, staff, and fans celebrating their first National League pennant in 71 years, but its most delightful—if that is the right word for it—moment is when bullpen catcher Chad Noble got wet and sticky in his hot dog (Correction:…
Washington cornerback Josh Norman caught a flag in Week 4's game against the Browns for pretending to shoot a bow and arrow. Since the NFL no longer seems to be okay with bows and arrows—real or imaginary—Norman says he might utilize a new celebration involving beer. Surely, the league wouldn’t have a problem with…
Odell Beckham Jr. has had an underwhelming start to the season and has been in a funk because of it, but the Giants receiver looked like his happy old self today after burning the Ravens for a 75-yard touchdown. He made the most out of his celebration.
The post-goal dab celebration is nearly ubiquitous on soccer pitches the world over. Langelihle Ndlovu and Pule Mmodi, members of the Free State Stars’ reserve team in South Africa, took it up a notch by each deciding to hit the dab during open play, an in-your-face effrontery that even Neymar would blush at.
Newcastle fought back from a 3-2 deficit against Norwich yesterday with two stoppage time goals to snatch a 4-3 win. Obviously, this had everyone super fuckin’ amped. None more so than Aleksandar Mitrović, who was so caught up in the moment that he almost snapped the winning goalscorer’s neck in celebration:

Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick and his players were delighted by their win this weekend, which cemented their promotion to the Bundesliga next year. Rangnick was not, however, so excited about the prospect of getting a couple of huge glasses of beer dumped on him. In his efforts to elude them, he pulled his hamstring:
You may glance at the headline above you and reflexively gag at the hyperbole. However, you would be wrong to do so, for Astana’s Diego Rosa really did the shit.
I love watching sports live, but I also love to relive the magic of a great play or a brutal block over and over again.
Here’s Inverness CT manager John Hughes, demonstrating on the jawbone and ribcage of Liam Polworth, the thin line between cheerful exuberance and adrenaline-drenched rage:

OBJ redeemed his no-good-very-bad day full of punches with this late touchdown catch.

Pittsburgh is hosting Cleveland today and, despite losing starter Landry Jones to an early injury, they have a healthy lead late in the fourth. This is partially because Antonio Brown’s two touchdowns, the second of which he celebrated with this impressive flip.
