NBC Director Cut Away From Ball-Pooping Celebration To Protect Us

On Sunday, Doug Baldwin celebrated his touchdown to put the Seahawks up 24-14 by pooping the football. (Seattle never scored again. Curse of the poopball? Hmmmm.) Only, the dozens of millions of people watching at home never saw it, because NBC abruptly cut away. » 2/03/15 1:50pm 2/03/15 1:50pm

Anderlecht Player Celebrates Goal With Unique Romantic(?) Gesture

We're familiar with the thumb-in-mouth celebration (usually aimed at the scorer's child), and the point-to-the-stands one (usually in acknowledgment of the scorer's friends and family), but Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrović's cunnilingis-inspired ode, ostensibly targeted to the lucky lady(s) in his life is a new… » 12/09/14 5:18pm 12/09/14 5:18pm

Dodgers Catcher Hurts Himself Celebrating Josh Beckett's No-Hitter

We can forgive Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis's exuberance at witnessing the greatness that was Josh Beckett's gem of a game yesterday. Not that the backup had anything to do with it, but still.

We Have Our First Ball-Spinning Penalty!
