We noted here that AFC Bournemouth had the potential to be one of the Premiership’s most exciting clubs this season, and the Cherries haven’t let us down—with Callum Wilson’s acrobatic overhead kick putting his side up 1-0 in the first half today against Leicester City. » 8/29/15 10:32am Today 10:32am

Wow, Maybe Roberto Soldado Doesn't Suck Anymore!

Well would you look at that! Roberto Soldado—once renowned for his uncanny ability to get goals without ever looking all that impressive doing so, now more famous as the world’s second-biggest bottler (behind fellow Spaniard Fernando Torres) stemming from his terrible stint with Tottenham—is back in Spain and back… » 8/28/15 4:24pm Yesterday 4:24pm

Reminder: Paul Goldschmidt Is Very Good

There’s a good chance you haven’t seen much of Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt over the last few seasons, despite the fact that he’s one of the best hitters in baseball. If Goldschmidt’s in your blindspot, don’t feel too bad, that’s just what happens when a guy plays in Arizona for a team that has not been… » 8/27/15 10:38am Thursday 10:38am

Pablo Sandoval Makes Great, Hilarious Catch

Pablo Sandoval is having a pretty terrible year, which is sad because he’s one of my favorite players in the league. When he’s good, he’s a slapstick artist who just happens to be blessed with the ability to sock dingers and play a slick third base.

These Two Petr Čech Saves Are The Best Saves

Arsenal are hosting Liverpool today in the Premier League, and through one half, the Gunners look like complete and utter bullcrap against the visitors. It’s remarkable how many players in Arsenal’s starting XI appear to be betting against their team on the same day. And yet—and yet!— it’s still scoreless at half.… » 8/24/15 4:45pm Monday 4:45pm

No One Loves Anything More Than This Ballboy Loves His Soccer Team

Salutations, my savages. What we have here is a match between Wycombe and Dag & Red in England’s League Two. It finished 1-1, and appeared to have been a hard-fought, good and fun contest between two bad and earnest teams. But that’s not why we have gathered around this blog on this wonderful day. » 8/24/15 12:25pm Monday 12:25pm

Little Leaguer Blasts Homer While Mom Is Doing Live ESPN Interview

South Carolina’s Terrence Gist hammered a ball way out of the park in his team’s Little League World Series game against Rhode Island today—just as ESPN was sitting down with his mom for a live interview. The pandering LLWS broadcasts can be awful at times, but maybe it’s worth it for moments like these? » 8/21/15 6:06pm 8/21/15 6:06pm

Borussia Dortmund Go Down Three Goals, Shrug, Score Four, Win

Once-great, now-good lunchpail German side Borussia Dortmund opened up their Europa League campaign away to some team from Norway aptly named Odds BK. August NIT games don’t impress us much, especially against teams from Norway, but Odds came out and scored 13 seconds into the dang match! » 8/20/15 6:22pm 8/20/15 6:22pm
