Tonight’s interim IBF World super middleweight title bout between José Uzcátegui and Andre Dirrell ended in bizarre fashion, with Dirrell earning a win by DQ after being knocked out by Uzcategui by a punch the referee determined to have come after the bell to end the eighth round. That was weird enough, but then one…
A chest-to-chest staring match in the NBA actually popped off into a real actual fight tonight. The Raptors and Bulls don’t like each other, and in the third quarter with the Bulls up big, Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez got into it after Jimmy Butler nailed a jumper. Unlike most other incidents where players “get into…
The backstage Oscars feed shows the moment hosts—including ESPN’s Adnan Virk—and the stars of Moonlight realized the epic screwup that led to La La Land being initially announced as Best Picture winner. There are some fantastic shots of the shocked crowd here, too.
“This is not a joke.”
Stop me if you’ve heard this one: a massive wreck at the end of a NASCAR race at Daytona. It happened in tonight’s truck race—the same one that had another Big One right after the first lap.
LeBron James forced overtime against Washington with a shot that ranks among the most legendary in his career. Incredible.
Canada lost its Davis Cup tie to Great Britain 3-2 after Denis Shapovalov accidentally drilled the chair umpire in the face with a ball in reaction to losing a point.
Gotta score this round for gravity.
The longest and most fabled of all championship droughts is over after an insane, interminable Game 7. The Chicago Cubs came back from a 3-1 deficit in the World Series to win in seven, and they capped off the comeback with a 8-7 win tonight in 10 innings.
Josh Dobbs connected with Jauan Jennings for a 43-yard desperation catch on the game’s final play to once again give Tennessee a win it appeared it had no chance of saving after falling behind Georgia 17-0.
Central Michigan, which completed one of the greatest Hail Mary plays of all time two years ago, did it again to beat #22 Oklahoma State 30-27 when Cooper Rush connected with Jesse Kroll, who then lateraled to Corey Willis for the touchdown.
Three people went to the hospital after a truck’s driveshaft was catapulted into the crowd at a Utah demolition derby. The videos are a terror:
If DeMar DeRozan had managed to stuff this dunk in on this poor Chinese national teamer, it would have been one of the coolest dunks in the history of jams. As it stands, DeRozan finished just shy. The USA bench got a technical foul for their reaction, which seems unfair given that they just nearly witnessed a man do…
Chris Froome appeared to have the Tour de France by the balls through most of this afternoon’s mountain stage up to Mount Ventoux, parrying away Nairo Quintana’s first attack and dropping everyone who posed a threat to his Tour on the final climb. While distancing Quintana and the rest of the general classification…
We’ll have plenty of analysis later, but for the moment: holy shit.
Might want to put down a tarp now, because your shit is going to fly everywhere after you watch this:
A nice reader sends us this amazing shot of Villanova forward Kris Jenkins’s game-winning buzzer-beater from the end of the NCAA championship game. We’ve all seen this shot from a dozen or so angles, but I don’t think this one has been out there yet.
There’s nothing ordinary about striking out 20 guys in a single game, and Max Scherzer doesn’t really need any help shining up the diamond he gave us last night, but this performance stands out as unusual even amongst its peers.
Kyle Lowry had been struggling all game, until the bitter end of Toronto’s opening game against Miami, when he hit this absolute moonshot to tie the game at 90 and send it to overtime. The Heat had it just about sealed up (TNT read the credits and everything) until they got too lackadaisical, got called for a travel…
Today’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Cameroon and South Africa went berserk early in the second half as Bafana Bafana midfielder Hlompho Kekana took a shot on goal from his own side of the pitch and scored, giving his team a 2-1 lead.
