Down two, five seconds left, season in the balance, the charred end of a night when his team hit 20 percent of its three-point attempts, a postseason in which home teams facing elimination were 0-10, the best defender on the East’s top seed staring him in the face, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Johnathan Hildred…
With 11:46 remaining in the third quarter of the game way back on April 3 between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Blazers forward Moe Harkless received a pass from Damian Lillard in the right corner, rose to shoot, and rattled in his third three-point basket of the night. It was his 68th…
At first glance, it looked like the Phoenix Suns’ gorilla mascot had gone rogue when he slid headfirst into the paint during the fourth quarter of the Suns game against the Washington Wizards.
Whoa now. Everyone take a deep breath.
Sure, the striker in this Greek lower-league match who somehow didn’t score despite having nearly all the time in the world is the easy scapegoat here, but let’s appreciate the defender’s hustle and never-say-die attitude in the face of impossible odds. He is the true star here.
Sabrina here didn’t know the answer to tonight’s Final Jeopardy! question about the Great Barrier Reef. That did not, however, stop her from chinning up, staring straight into the camera, and delivering the best answer of the night.
Cycling legend Danny Chew, 54, broke his neck and was paralyzed below the waist after drifting off the road and crashing in a ditch while out on a ride Sunday, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. According to his friend Cassie Schumacher, who was riding with him when he crashed, doctors say it’s…
Che Guevara looks good in a beret, and Eldridge Cleaver had his moments, but today let us all take a moment to honor Real Motherfucking Hero of the People: John motherfucking Bogle, who has kept hundreds of billions of dollars out of the pockets of Wall Street greedheads.
Remember Pita Taufatofua, the Tongan flag-bearer who captivated us at the opening ceremony weeks (feels like months) ago? He returned for tonight’s closing ceremony, fresh off losing his taekwondo bout by mercy rule.
Today is a really great day.
So a half-decade later, Heroes returns to NBC tonight as Heroes Reborn, and you probably don’t really give a damn. I get it.
Salute Filipino divers John David Pahoyo and John Elmerson Fabriga, because even with no experience and little support, the two athletes still competed in this year’s Southeast Asian Games. Sure, they were awful, but... well, I don’t know where I’m going with this. It’s not their faults, though.
A random pedestrian news outlets alternately referred to as “heroic” and “crazy” brought a wild Los Angeles police chase to an end as he stepped in front of the suspect’s car, ending the hour-long pursuit.
“This man is a legend.” A Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 driver at today’s 24 Hours Nürburgring lost a wheel and made a valiant effort to retrieve and repair it before giving in and allowing himself to be towed back to the pits. The commentary from Vodaphone’s broadcasters are priceless on this; the reason the driver was…
The word hero is thrown around so loosely these days. But the guy who decked a Syracuse lacrosse player who had attacked two random people, then dared the police to arrest him for knocking the guy out with a single punch? Hero. (Police did not arrest him, because he's a hero.)
Last Monday, a Lincoln Towncar carrying a woman and her one-year-old granddaughter T-boned an 18-wheeler after attempting to merge. The huge resulting crash, massive explosion, and raging inferno is the trifecta of horror for any driver. Or, at least it would be, if not for one heroic truck driver.
This morning, everyone lost their shit over Tara, the hero cat of Bakersfield who saved her owner's 4-year-old son from an unprovoked dog attack in one of the greatest cat videos of all time. Now, Tara finally speaks. Kind of.
A Bakersfield, California boy suffered only minor injuries after what could have been a tragic dog attack was thwarted...by the family cat.
This may shock you, given its mission as a nonprofit devoted to the needs of its student-athletes, but the NCAA will fucking cut you if you threaten its corporate sponsorships. Those extend even to the drinking vessels used by media sitting courtside for tournament games. One intrepid Wall Street Journal reporter…
