What is going on here???
Look, Chinese teams flexing their newfound financial muscle by snatching up a handful of the best performers from the Brazilian league every season, or even by buying some very good though out of favor European players like Gervinho and Ramires is one thing. But breaking the bank for a striker on one of the best teams…
Generally speaking, youth sports are about fun and fitness and finding a bit of self-worth in a big, strange world, and perhaps—perhaps—discovering an activity that makes you Feel Something. But generally speaking—generally speaking—the stakes ain’t that high, and they’re not supposed to be.
Did you know snapping turtles could do it like this?
Yes, that headline is accurate. Today in Australia’s Big Bash League (which, true to its moniker, is getting a lot of attention in these parts recently) Melbourne Stars bowler Adam Zampa earned a dismissal after the Renegades’ Peter Nevill slapped a line drive that went off his teammate’s bat, then off Zampa’s face,…
Marcel Hirscher, the best alpine skier in the world, recently competed in a World Cup event in Madonna di Campiglio, Italy. A few seconds into his second slalom run, he was very nearly crushed by a falling camera drone.
Steve Harvey, the host of tonight’s Miss Universe pageant, did the one thing that the host of any award show absolutely cannot do: he announced the wrong winner. It was hilarious.
An untimed down due to a facemask penalty on what should have been the final play of the game allowed Aaron Rodgers to find Richard Rodgers in the end zone 61 yards away to give the Packers an incredible 27-23 victory.

Wladimir Klitschko’s nearly ten-year-long reign as boxing’s heavyweight champion came to an end today as British fighter and 3-1 underdog Tyson Fury defeated the Ukranian in Düsseldorf by unanimous decision. It was Klitschko’s first loss since 2004.
We told you Holly Holm was no match for Ronda Rousey, and the challenger made us look like idiots tonight in Melbourne as Holm knocked out Rousey a minute into the second round with a head kick —ripping the title from who we previously considered the world’s most dominant athlete.
Duke took the lead on Miami with just seconds remaining in Durham, only for the Hurricanes to pull off one of the most incredible plays we’ve ever seen in college football history.

Portland Timbers are moving on in the MLS playoffs after defeating Sporting Kansas City in a wild match that required eleven rounds of penalties—with the winner being scored by, and then saved by, Timbers keeper Adam Kwarasey.
Michigan State found victory in the most unlikely of circumstances when the Spartans returned a botched long snap on the final play of the game to turn what the world assumed would be a 23-21 Michigan win into a 27-23 loss. This is absoutely bonkers.
Shut it down, folks. You’re not going to see a more amazing college football play this season.
Holy shit, man! An inning after one of the wildest moments in playoff history put his team down 3-2, Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista came up and crushed a big-ass motherfuckin’ three-run homer. He then unleashed the greatest bat flip I have ever seen.

Arsenal are hosting Liverpool today in the Premier League, and through one half, the Gunners look like complete and utter bullcrap against the visitors.
