Last Friday night, a group of Washington State football players went to a house party near WSU campus in Pullman. According to WSU senior Alex Rodriguez and witnesses interviewed by the Seattle Times, a group of “four of five players” were setting off fireworks in the backyard of the house and throwing them at people,…
Yesterday’s game between the Corpus Christi Hooks and the Frisco RoughRiders—the Double A affiliates of the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers, respectively—got out of hand in a damn hurry.
Summer may already be half over, but finally—finally—we have a good basebrawl.
Heading into the first rest day of the Tour de France, Chris Froome holds the yellow jersey by a slim margin. Nairo Quintana, Adam Yates, and a few other plucky challengers are right there with him, but Froome and Team Sky have done what they do every year: wring the life out of every vaguely hilly stage until…
Most professional cyclists are—by the standards of the alpha sportsman—not particularly intimidating. Descriptors you could use to describe pro cyclists range from “waif-thin insect person” to “cut, scrawny, and sunburnt.” However, French sprinter Nacer Bouhanni defies this, even if he’s 5-foot-9, 146 pounds.
The Memphis Redbirds hosted the New Orleans Zephyrs this evening for some AAA action, and they treated their guests to a very spicy basebrawl. Apparently, Jose Urena tried to bean Jeremy Hazelbaker in the fifth inning, he charged the mound, and it was on.
Tonight’s NASCAR truck race near St. Louis was already running late after a rain delay and several wrecks, but it was one with just seven laps remaining that brought Spencer Gallagher and John Wes Townley to fisticuffs. Rubbin’ (fists) is racin’!
Today’s England-Russia Euro 2016 match should be a firecracker, if for no other reason than supporters of both teams have been brawling for days—forcing cops to break out the water cannons.
In a wildlife metaphor for Can-Am relations, or perhaps just another instance of nature being awesome, a bald eagle let a Canada goose know it could murder it any time it wants, but merely chooses not to.
I can’t recall a player or a team being so unrepentant—so proud—of a bench-clearing brawl as Manny Machado and the Orioles were of Machado charging the mound and delivering a haymaker/DDT combo. But then, I can’t recall a player that so many around baseball have wanted to see take a punch to the face more than Yordano…
After throwing at him earlier in the game, Yordano Ventura plunked Manny Machado in the fifth inning, prompting Machado to quickly remove his helmet, limp to the mound, and light into Ventura. It looks like he landed a decent string of punches before he got pulled off the Royals pitcher.
Aqib Talib was taken to a Dallas hospital with a gunshot wound early Sunday morning, and initial reports had him as one of three victims at a nightclub shooting. However, Talib has maintained that he was at a park when he got shot in the thigh and was too drunk to know who shot him, but Dallas PD are investigating…
The Critérium du Dauphiné started yesterday, and it’s the first time most Tour de France contenders will get to gauge each other’s forms after a long spring spent either training in secret Canary Islands training camps or scattered about lesser early-season stage races. Sunday’s prologue was a time trial, so it was…
Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib has been released from a Dallas hospital after being shot during a nightclub altercation Saturday night, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Would it surprise you to learn that Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor, the dude who landed a right hook on Jose Bautista’s jaw and created one of the most memorable GIFs in baseball history, isn’t new to this whole punching people thing?
The best thing about this video of a Houston road rage incident—captured by an incredibly calm bystander—is that the whole episode initially resulted in no incident report. As far as the cops knew, it never happened. That’s amazing, given all the criminal acts that take place in it:
Rougned Odor slugged José Bautista in the face following the latter’s questionable slide into second and sparked a brawl talking heads will be discussing all week. While we wait for the inevitable punishments to be handed down, let’s appreciate the point of contact as presented in extreme slow motion.
Toronto and Texas brawled in the top of the eighth as punches were flying while the ball was still bouncing around the field. We’re waiting on a good video replay; for now, enjoy this feed from Fox Sports Southwest and KRLD.
At this Friday’s Kentucky Oaks, the bros in attendance were feeling feisty.
The gruesome stomping out you see above was just one instance of fan violence that occurred during this weekend’s CSA vs. CRB rivalry match. After the game ended 0-1 in favor of CRB, which won them the local state championship at stake, dozens of opposing fans streamed onto the pitch and started fighting:
