Onside Punt Touchdown Is A True Gift From Canada

Canada’s been leaving us some crappy gifts lately, but here’s something from tonight’s Toronto-Hamilton game that might perk your ears up: an onside punt touchdown, unique to the Canadian game and something we strongly encourage Roger Goodell to unilaterally write into American Football’s rules. » 8/03/15 7:32pm Today 7:32pm

Johannes Geis Hammers Home Long-Range Free Kick Golazo

Schalke 04 up-and-comer Johannes Geis gave the supporters in Gelsenkirchen something to anticipate for the forthcoming season as he drilled a perfect free kick into the corner of the net during today’s friendly against Dutch side Twente.

Marshawn Lynch May Be The Best Kickball Player Ever

Here we have some video of Marshawn Lynch playing kickball at a charity barbecue event in Oakland. And holy hell, I have absolutely no clue where Lynch’s first kick ends up!

Justin Upton Gets Up To Rob A Dinger

Damn, Justin Upton, what did Andrew McCutchen ever do to you? McCutchen had to think this go-ahead homer was long gone but Upton, recently named the Padres’ lone representative to the All-Star game, got way up above the wall to take it away. McCutchen got the last laugh, however, as his Pirates scored two more runs to… » 7/08/15 1:32am 7/08/15 1:32am

For 16 Minutes, Carli Lloyd Was The Greatest Player Of All Time

From the start, it felt like the fate of the United States women’s national team hinged not on talent or tactics or even luck, but on the answers to a series of open questions. Can Alex Morgan get healthy in time to contribute? What do we do with Christen Press and Sydney Leroux? What happens when we pretend a… » 7/06/15 12:27pm 7/06/15 12:27pm
