The Yankees have adopted the thumbs-down as a tool of positive reinforcement, ever since an unhappy man in the stands gave the gesture to Todd Frazier’s homer in last Monday’s game against the Rays. As it happens, the fan responsible for the gesture loves the other team in New York.
Sunday saw the return of the Los Angeles Chargers, their first home game since 1960, and no one’s very excited about it.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, at 1-0, are off to their best start since the 2011 season, when they opened up with a narrow win over the Tennessee Titans. Jaguars fans, in their euphoria, have rocketed all the way to the Belly-Flopping-Into-A-Vat-Of-Mayonnaise stage of celebration. Observe:
Here’s a dipshit invading the field in Houston tonight, as is the Idiot’s way. He dodges a few tackles but finds his path blocked by the very low right field wall; it’s still too tall for his limited leaping ability (though it looks like that might be an usher playing defense on him).
I completely understand why American broadcasters generally won’t show fans who run onto the field in the middle of a game. You don’t want to reward them with attention (even though, based on nothing, I think most of them do it because they’re drunk and stupid, not because they want their friends watching at home to…
In the most predictable turn of events ever, those estimated 20,000 loud and rowdy Köln fans that traveled to London for today’s Europa League match against Arsenal have gone from being endearingly unruly to actively dangerous—so much so that the match has been delayed for security concerns.
Today’s Champions League match between NK Maribor and Spartak Moscow was briefly interrupted after a fan in the Spartak section fired a flare onto the pitch, narrowly missing the head referee.
The San Diego Chargers are no more. The team plays its first game since 1960 as the Los Angeles Chargers tonight, and they will be down at least one fan when they step onto the field in Denver: Chargers Twerk Girl.
With a gaudy 1-0 record, Buffalo is all alone in first place in the AFC East. But much more importantly than that, let’s check in with Bills fans:
Football’s not back until the fans are brawling, and thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long. The Eagles defeated Washington today, but some hot-blooded Skins fans really wanted to come home feeling a win (apologies for any neck pain caused by trying to watch this video):
Today being the first Sunday of the NFL regular season, and Bills fans being Bills fans, a couple of Bills fans chose the parking lot outside the Bills stadium and the morning before the Bills home opener as the venue and time for their nuptials. Congratulations!
When you are fleeing your home, and perhaps your state, and perhaps your former life, as a historic hurricane bears down on you, it’s a good idea that you take a few moments to remember what’s really important in this lifetime: that the Jets are a bunch of junk:
During this weekend’s Alabama-Florida State game, a pair of rowdy Alabama fans got into a nasty-looking fight in the stands of the Falcons stadium. Officers responded to reports of a fight in the 120/121 section of the stadium at around 11 p.m. local time. According to an incident report obtained by the Atlanta…
At the Green Bay Packers’ annual Welcome Back Luncheon, one rather forward fan decided to give star quarterback Aaron Rodgers a smooch on the head:
Today’s County Championship cricket match between Surrey and Middlesex at the Oval ended in a draw after a metal-tipped crossbow bolt landed onto the field. No one was hurt, and police aren’t sure if it was even intentional.
A Pennsylvania woman was allegedly beaten up and shaved by her daughter and granddaughter Sunday because she reportedly turned up the radio for the preseason Steelers game too loudly.
The photo above shows Everton striker Wayne Rooney antagonizing the nearby Manchester City fans after he’d just scored against the home team during yesterday’s match. The keen-eyed Twitter user @Mirallas noticed that this picture bears a striking resemblance to another post-goal Rooney celebration at City’s stadium,…
Everton hosted Croatian side Hajduk Split for a Europa League qualifier this afternoon, which meant that hundreds of Hajduk fans traveled to Liverpool for the game. They appeared to be ready to get rowdy before the match, and they delivered once things started. Everton’s Michael Keane (no apparent relation) scored in…
Being a sports fan isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, and when the team you root for fails to give you the joy and pleasure you’re after, sometimes you have to look for alternate avenues for good sensations. Hence these two Yankees fans coming together in sexual congress on the 5 train after the Yanks’ big loss to the…
The Red Sox came back to beat the Yankees 3-2 and win the rubber game of their series thanks to their rookies: A ninth-inning home run from Rafael Devers and a 10th-inning single from Andrew Benintendi. And Devers’s homer silenced one very excited Yankees fan:
