The Yankees got out to a four-run lead over the Angels in the top of the first inning tonight, and Aaron Hicks wasn’t ready to see it slip away. With the bases loaded for Anaheim in the bottom of the inning, he leaped for a perfectly-timed grab over the wall in center field in order to rob Luis Valbuena of what would…
Realizing the NHL season is over for a few months while watching the victorious team parade with the Stanley Cup really sucks, but each year the Hockey Night in Canada folks help add some sweet to that bitter with its annual montage of this season’s best Stanley Cup Playoffs moments. (The music this time around is…
A Patric Hornqvist goal with 90 seconds left in the third period gave Pittsburgh the lead they needed as the Penguins claimed the Stanley Cup for the second straight year, winning by an eventual score of 2-0 after a late empty-net goal by Carl Hagelin.
Leigh Griffiths hammered home a pair of free-kick goals in the final five minutes of Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against England today, taking a 2-1 lead only to see the match end in a draw thanks to, yeah, Harry Kane.
Olivier Giroud is no stranger to magnificent goals, and his half-volley bender to put his France side up 1-0 on Sweden today ranks up there with the best of them. (Perhaps in shock, the Frenchmen surrendered a Jimmy Durmaz equalizer minutes later.)
A pair of gorgeous second-half goals by America’s Wonderteen gave the U.S. a 2-0 World Cup qualifier win tonight in Denver over Trinidad and Tobago.
Gwang-Min Song of the Hanwha Eagles is here to remind us that playing third base is not a job for the faint of heart. Sometimes you get balls ripped at you at 100 mph, and sometimes you have to deal with some bullshit like this:

And that’s what we got in Pittsburgh tonight, as the Penguins crushed Ottawan hopes and dreams while answering NBC’s prayers when Chris Kunitz took a pass from Sidney…

In the sixth inning of last night’s game between the Phillies and Rockies, Freddy Galvis fouled a Jeff Hoffman fastball into the second deck behind home plate. That’s where Josh Persing, owner of a Brad Lidge jersey and a thick Philly accent, was waiting to pounce.
