Novak Djokovic was, by one metric, historically bad last night for a Grand Slam match winner. He held on to beat Frenchman Giles Simon 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 in the round of 16 at the Australian Open, but he committed 100 unforced errors. In a way, this is more indicative of Simon’s style (as you can see in the…
While wrapping up a 33-point, 19-rebound destruction of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had a little chat with a heckler in the OKC crowd.
Fans watching today’s Ohio State-Indiana game couldn’t help but notice a foul-mouthed heckler standing near one of ESPN’s crowd microphones. He carried on for several minutes in this profane fashion, though he really should work on finding some new material.
Dwight Howard had a pretty rough game last night, racking up just seven points and six rebounds in 18 minutes against the Clippers. That probably had something to do with him asking a heckler to come out onto the court and meet his hands.
Do you remember when you found your calling? It might have happened at a different point in your life than your parents, siblings, or friends. Corey Simms found his about five years ago while watching the St. John's Caps, a junior hockey team based in Newfoundland and Labrador. He decided to yell at their opponents.
Reader Thad sends along this video of Vikings tackle Matt Kalil leaving the stadium after yesterday's loss to the Packers. At the very start of the video, you can see Kalil walk up to a Vikings fan, knock the dude's hat off his head, and then walk away. Then someone throws something at Kalil, and misses badly.
He had a role model. The most obnoxious spectator in sports history says he was inspired by the most beloved athlete of all time.
This photo, taken by A's fan Nick Wong, shows the only response Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel needed to shut down a good-natured heckler. You can tell a guy he sucks, but how much can he really suck if he's being paid to be where you spent money to get in?
The Pacers, they suck. They suck so bad that they are now one loss away from being bounced out of the first round by the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks. They suck so bad that during last night's loss in Indiana, they drove one Pacers fan to his breaking point.
A fun thing happened during last night's Rockets-Mavericks game. Late in the fourth quarter, Dwight Howard got heckled by a very angry man who may or may not have been an extra in Wayne's World 2, and Howard responded by tossing the ball at the heckler.
We don't know why this gentleman, presumably a Lakers fan, wants the attention of Spurs big man Matt Bonner. (Perhaps he suspects Bonner of having gotten him pregnant.) Regardless, he is very close to TNT's court mic, which we've isolated here.
This video has been on YouTube for almost two years, but we've only just discovered it. And we are very glad that we did, because this may be the best way we've ever seen a baseball player handle a heckler.
Dwight Howard did more than blow kisses at Magic fans last night. Late in the third quarter, Howard found himself being heckled by a fan seated near the basket, and he responded with a comeback from the always reliable "Oh yeah, well I fucked your mom!" catalog.
