In a season where Phillip Hofmann committed this crime against finishing, it would take a special bit of incompetence to snatch away the award of Miss Of The Season. This is not that. It is, however, a really bad effort from a really good player, making it particularly embarrassing in its own right.
Italy's Serie A is a league of stories, full of characters, narratives, plots, tensions, climaxes, and clichés. Time and again, the line between fact and fiction becomes so blurred that you just have to throw your hands up and shrug. You really couldn't make a lot of this stuff up.
The flashing electronic bulletin board on College Avenue read "SOCCER EVENT." Berkeley Police closed off main roads a mile out from California Memorial Stadium an hour before Real Madrid was to play Inter Milan in a fake soccer game as part of the International Champions Cup, a fake soccer tournament. The atmosphere…
Recently, Idiots on the Field broke new ground by Vining themselves running in the middle of a sporting event. That clip was only six seconds, though. This Idiot named Zack has just revolutionized Idiot footage with a lengthy video.
The business of cataloging awful (and sometimes admirable) injury performances in soccer games is an important one, and we do not take it lightly. Also not apparently taken lightly: Incidental contact to Lille's Aurélien Chedjou's neck. The contact somehow automatically transported to the Cameroonian's eyeball and…
Samuel Eto'o, the 30-year-old Cameroonian soccer player, is leaving the glitz and prestige of Serie A's Inter Milan to play "for an obscure club in the violence-wracked Caucasus region of Dagestan, Russia." From Milan, one of the world's fashion capitals, to Dagestan: the land of the mountains. This would be a very…
This, via Dirty Tackle, is what happens when an AC Milan fan accidentally wanders into an Inter Milan fan section. It doesn't matter that this is Beijing and not Milan — wearing red and black is a de-kitable offense.
Materazzi, you'll remember, is most famous for being on the receiving end of Zinedine Zidane's headbutt in the 2006 World Cup. (They've reconciled recently!)
Dejan Stankovic scored a beautiful goal for Inter Milan in their 1-0 win over Roma in the Coppa Italia semifinal yesterday, and the great Ray Hudson was there for Gol TV's call. Magisterial, indeed.
Inter Milan's Dejan Stankovic scored a goal just 20 seconds into a Champions League game against Schalke last night in Milan. More accurately, Stankovic fluidly picked the ball out of the air from midfield and sent it searing past Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer with one touch. From fifty meters out. Inter lost this…
An animator named Richard Swarbrick made this tribute to Tottenham's Gareth Bale, the 21 year-old star of Spurs. The video uses Bale's highlights from two matches against Inter Milan this season — the first, a 4-3 loss on October 20 in which Bale scored a hat trick in the second half, and the second a 3-1 win on…
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

After a hilariously abject first half, Tottenham Hotspur can claim to have beaten the European champions 3-0 over 45 minutes last night, thanks to a jet-heeled Gareth Bale hat-trick.
Oh look, a match in Italy between Cagliari and Inter Milan was temporarily stopped so stadium personnel could get a handle on a bunch of racist chanting aimed at Inter's Samuel Eto'o.
For those of you too busy pinking up your faces and sloshing back summertime pints, Jose Mourinho had a great night on Saturday, bagging another Champions League trophy, before celebrating with a home made water fountain. Some highlights after the jump.
